Always a great way to start off.. tongue.gif You'll get used to it. Shaking zombies is actually pretty easy. Once you learn which buildings are which, you can run through the ones with multiple entrances (waiting inside the building for a second to make sure they follow you to the door) then sneak out another entrance. You can break their line of sight by zigzagging through bushes or thick trees. There's also the always funny flying zombie trick where you lead zombies to a steep hill and run down it carefully, then watch as they just launch themselves off the side of the hill to their death. There's also the pine tree trick, where you can just sit as close as you can to the center of a pine tree and the zombies can't hit you.

Yeah, they're pretty buggy so their line of sight can be broken really easily. That might change in the standalone, though.

I don't have that luxury since I play solo most of the time. If I'm just starting off, I'll run into a forest trying to lose as many as I can before I turn around and pop them in their heads.

I GOT MY FIRST WEAPON!

An axe...

UPDATE: So within an hour, I found a bunch of soda, ammo, an M9, and a double-barrel shotgun. I aborted once I got the shotgun. I'm going to wait until there are fewer people on the server (already hear gunshots 3 or 4 times in different places I was in).

I remember playing DayZ like that... I wish I could get back to that. Now I can find military grade stuff in around an hour frown.gif

I'm now curious to see this also. I have been meaning to play some ACE for the past while but haven't done it yet. Have you just been playing on Domination servers?
post #3950 of 4265
OK, accepting. Never actually played wasteland, but I'd like to give it a shot.

I love DayZ, though.

Even regular Arma battles and such are fun to me, Arma is my favorite/only PC game. I'm surprisingly (to myself) good.

Joey, if you'd like to be in the clan, I'll invite you to our skype chat and we'll eventually set up training for you.
