    if it turns out to be a lootbox extravaganza all you have to do is shoot one of the pricks with fancy kit and you have it for free.

    The NPC bots that lurk around are more than capable of auto headshotting you with little to no warning, thus i haven't noticed any hackers.
    Or the netcode can shit itself so you shoot a guy with a full clip, then realise he just wont die, 3 min later the desynch sorts itself and you're dead.
    Just beta things

    Needs more nicknames.

    Add Kilabi


    Fuck, just looted the 2 big backpacks, 2 AKSU, 1 Vepr, 1 Saiga12, loads of mags, tactical gear and bodyarmor and could not make it to the factory exit. Did not have the key for the side exits and ran into too many scavs on the way to main. God damn.

    EquiumDuo ingame

    My Review:
    Better crack than Factorio.

    It's a brutal game and i feel like I did when I used to play Eve. That exhilarating rush that you can make a mistake (or not) and lose everything.

    The visuals are great, I love the sound engine (comtacs are op). I play with my airsoft mates a lot and even though there is no HUD it really feels natural relaying to each other positions and movements. Feels fucking awesome.

    Getting that sweet Exfil is where its at.

    Also I am the creator of what I have dubbed "The Great Ruble Run" and I make bank bro.

    Love it right now,

    I was somewhere around Old Man Star, on the edge of Essence, when drugs began to take hold.

    Moved over to shoreline now.

    Rush the pier, first office building has 2 saves and the loot always pays for pistol-mags-ammo and some spare. If you pack the money into the alpha cache you are set to risk some more.
    The shop further behind has a cash register for some more money or you can to and risk a fight with the scavs on the gas-station just outside the pier area.
    Whatever you decide to do, pier boat is also the exfil so you can fuck off right away.

    Gas station scavs wear armor at times so watch yourself going there. On the other hand amazing loot to get from them. I always got badly hurt taking them on with a pistol alone so I never went into the gasstation but exfiled with 2 guns and a new armor.


    Also some newbie tips:

    1. If you go in for serious, helmet and armor is a must. Multiplies your survivability.
    2. Use armorpiercing ammo.
    3. Press "O" as scav to see your exfil spots and google maps to find them.
    4. Alpha cache can save a low gear run if you just manage to get 1-2 goodish items out. (mods, magazine, jewelry, dogtags)
    5. Always get the dogtags from players, amazing money for starters, good for leveling traders as most of them buy the tags.
    6. Bring 1 loaded gun, 1 loaded magazine and spare ammo in the alpha cache. Refill the magazine after reloading with the ammo from the cache. This way you only risk 1 magazine and no ammo.
    7. Bring 1 first-aid whatever in the alpha cache.

    Threw together the ingame maps with exits marked and added them to one album for easier access.

    with the 25% off i thought id look at this as its only about 24euro. what they dont say is that they havent included tax and then they charge for all their payment methods bringing the total back up to the price it was before the sale. ... il pass.
