Caves – Part I

If you don’t have one, the high snow mountain can be found NORTH. The main-lake’s southern end is located south.

Before you go exploring caves, ensure that you have enough food, leaves, sticks, booze, and fabric (to make more molovos). Also, have water, energy, and health mixes. You also need a basic bow and plane axe. You will be able to defend yourself at first. Fabric can be combined with weapons to brighten and defend the environment. If you run out Molotovs, you can make new ones with booze+fabric. Some caves can be ‘easy’ while others may surprise you; it is better to be prepared.

Final Tips and Info

FENCES: wood, the first option in the Survival Book, is best. But, pilfering rocks on its side will add extra strength to its defenses. The rocks+spikes are also very valuable, increasing strength by at least 3x.

TREE HOUSES: even if building destruction: -off In order to avoid trees falling on fences, a mutant could easily cause damage to a tree, causing it to fall on any other structures. If a house was constructed, it is important to protect the tree.

WINDOWS: Avoid making campfires inside the house. Instead, move away quietly from the windows. Cannibals can see movement and fire. (I wish there were curtains!)

SAVING GAME: If you do not have aTemporary Shelter in order to save game, a bed (or a Hunting shelter) Small or large cabin These beds are highly recommended and can be used as a base for two or three players. A bed is essential for large bases so all players can save their games.

BUILD A HOME FOR BIRDS: Many birdhouses will ensure that you have enough feathers to make arrows. While killing birds may be an accomplishment, the meat and feathers will not suffice.

EFFIGIES: appears only after a while when a player kills and dismembers several cannibals. See the Survival Book 2nd page. You can build anything, from a simple one to a complicated one, and light a fire which burns for many hours. Infigies are used to scare the cannibals() is like a territory.

22A30072834If it is placed on land, it takes one shape. If placed in the water, it transforms into a fish trap.

WEAPONS STAND: The Survival Book shows an example of a tree trunk placed in the floor. But, moving the ghost to the wall and it transforms into two hooks to display weapons.

The Forest Overlay Map + Items + Caves & Locations - Final Tips & Info - D6FE86F

HOLDER FOR LOGS & ROCKS, STICKS: The Survival Book shows only the smaller/simpler version. Once the ghost is in the ground, however, look out for the “reverse of change” symbol (and two arrows). Press it, and a larger container will appear.

Ghosts are holograms with a colorful, hologram-like appearance that indicate what’s being made. They can also change color via Settings.

ANIMAL HEADS: You can place them as wall trophy but they cannot be removed. Instead, you can place them in a catapult to store until you find a place. Animal reads cannot be removed once they are placed, but can still be destroyed.

COLD: increases the energy cost, however LISTENING MUSIC can recover energy. You can also recover energy sitting on a chair.

ENEMIES: is a pale cannibal that will appear on the surface within 6-7 days. They are often armed with incendiary Tennis balls. The (mutant spider lady Virginia) Armsy will appear around 8-12 days, and Fatman around 14 Days. But it’s very relative in multiplayer. Multiple mutants may appear. Cannibals who are killed in caves won’t respawn. They can’t swim or climb ropes and can’t swim. In panic, climb a rope. They will not dodge traps. If lights are off and the environment is quiet, they may ignore players within bases. To defeat mutants, use explosives, molotovs and incendiaryarrows such as the flare guns. Armsy can easily destroy trees and fences, as can Virginia, who can jump. She can even produce babies to fight back. Fatman can be avoided by running around in circles. Make sure to keep energy mixes in stock.

SANITY: gamers start with 100% and can drop to zero at any time. This can interfere with some actions. After a certain level of decrease, you can see the EFFIGIES blueprints. When you have blood for long periods (, don’t wash yourself), kill cannibals and eat their limbs. You can increase your health by sleeping, eating animals or plants, listening to music, and sat in chairs to improve stamina.


Conflower, aloe, marigold, and chicory Combining plants/flowers can improve stamina or health. It is recommended that you plant them in your base, so that they are easy to access. You can also assign one slot from the quick menu to make a mix. Marigold, Aloe and other plants can be found in the south-east. Aloe is also found near the Crocodile hunting area at north east. Coneflower located east of the main lake at the Ledge Cave entry.
