Don't die...:p

In all seriousness:
  1. If you're going to be using vehicles make sure you've got at least one can of gas in the back. Especially if you're heading out for longer trips.
  2. Keeping a vehicle repair kit on hand is a good idea too.
  3. Kiting is a good way to deal with Jugs that aren't too far from either home base or an enclave.

I spent ages hacking away at a hostile human, thinking, "Fuck me, this guy's tough!"

Not tough enough to survive a bullet to the head though 😂😂😂
I was going to post that too. Headshots work on humans too. I put six or eight rounds in the first one, then headshot the other two, much easier.

Don't visit your storage locker to unload. When "parked" (indicated by the fuel gauge), transfer from the truck directly to storage (LT on controller, hint bar at the bottom will tell you). I spent hours last night moving everything manually then saw the tip when loading up the game today. :rolleyes:

Questions about Supply Rucksacks -

1) Is there a still a limit as to the number that you hold back from dropping off into your Home Base. In SoD1 the limit was 10 Rucksacks.

2) As cars are now more 'rare' in SoD2, can you just 'stack' Supply Rucksacks on the floor near your Home Base, or do you have to keep them in the back of vehicles?

The limit is 8 rucksacks, unfortunately, not quite sure how we've moved backwards..
See spoiler for images, taken in 21:9 so you may need to scroll around a bit on lower resolutions.

HTF is preserving zombie corpses higher priority than preserving the resource pool?!?!

If you wish to preserve your weapon and look badass at the same time: you can dodge through zeds, turn around, and stealth kill/grapple+execute them from behind. For stealth kills, at least, you'll be getting some Wits XP, too.
So far as I played, I always use this for stealth kill 'cause other attack ways are too slow for deal zeds.

Running low on ammo? Can't find enough of a specific type? From the storage area where you drop off rucks there's an option to organize ammo by caliber which costs one ammo resource but give you an assortment of random ammo types. I've found it's the easiest way to obtain certain harder to find calibers such as 5.56 and 7.62.
