If you have less than 1 hour and haven’t refund this game yet, read until the end and hopefully you can find some fun in this game.
How to start
Step 1: Avoid official ,mech and hardcore servers instead go for max loot slow metabolism servers. Servers with safe zones are nice as well to start.
Step 2: Select 3 3 3 3 for str con dex and int
Step 3: This is the complicated part
AT LEAST GO BASIC ON MELEE, DRIVING, SURVIVAL
Some guide on how to build your character:
-STR: Avoid leveling any boxing, handguns or archery unless you are into pve ♥♥♥♥ (Recoil is so easy to control if you have advanced rifles)
-CON: Higher running than endurance
-DEX: Don’t bother with thievery (you’re not gonna be able to lockpick anything other than locked lockers anyway if you’re very new to the game and prioritize stealth)
-INT: Camo and sniping can be increased to basic easily + you’re not gonna land a 800 m+ shot anyway unless someone you play with is gonna teach you how to adjust for wind.
Step 4: See the settings for the hotkeys and try to memorize the one that you think are important
Step 5: If you spawn in the middle of nowhere just suicide. No point in running around forests for 30 minutes.
Step 6: open https://scum-map.com/en – [scum-map.com] go to map filters and pick vehicle spawns. Finding a car is the most important thing in this game or else you will probably refund it like i do after spending hours just running around. Don’t loot military places unless you got a car, you will not be able to run far with the loot you get since you will get tired, hungry and thirsty all the time
Step 7: Find a decent melee weapon (axe, baseball bat, metal pipe, etc) not a knife and go to the nearest bunker.
Step 8: Lock the hoard of zombies in a room if you can or kill them 1 by 1 and always try to dodge their attacks by moving away when they are gonna hit you. Always make sure you have enough stamina to run away if you ♥♥♥♥ up and a world war z type of swarm is coming to you.
Step 9: Get a gun and kill people with it.
Step 10: Profit
Some helpful tips:
-Don’t shoot with a unsuppressed gun unless you know the server has no many people in it (you can check battle metrics and type the server name). Gunshots will make a car or even 2 filled with fully geared bloodthirsty guys go and track you down.
-Shoot first talk later if you only see only 1 guy, just surrender or hide if you see more than 3 guys with guns and hope they’re nice enough not to kill you (don’t let them tie you if they sound toxic)
-Wear at least military helmet and vest if you want to fight
-Park far away from the place you want to loot, remember your location in map and put a flag blueprint near your car so you can find it later)
-Find a friend to play with or kill a lot and hope a squad will want to invite you in. At least be nice and polite in chat and some squad will eventually invite you.
