Strategy for solo player?

4 posts in this topic

Anyone got any good tips for surviving and thriving as a solo player, I'm thinking of buying a truck and hiding it in the jungle as a temporary mobile loot dump to speed up grinding tabs for a safe and some territory. Any good strategies or tactics I should be using as a solo player.

Also quick newb question, where can you fill water bottles on Tanoa (I'm seeing lots of water storage looking things on the map but theydon't give any refill option).

dont get shot :)

It all depends on the server your on and if there running default code or not.

This is a list of clean and dirty water source

	class WaterSource
	{
		name = "Water tanks, barrels, coolers or pumps";
		models[] = 	
		{
			"barrelwater_f", 
			"barrelwater_grey_f",
			"waterbarrel_f",
			"watertank_f",
			"stallwater_f",
			"waterpump_01_f",
			"water_source_f",

			// Namalsk
			"wellpump",
			"Land_jhad_stand_water",
			"Land_Jbad_Misc_Well_L",
			"Land_jbad_Fridge",
			"Land_jbad_reservoir",
			"Land_jbad_teapot",
			"Land_KBud",
			
			//Tanoa
			"watertank_01_f",
			"watertank_02_f",
			"watertank_03_f",
			"watertank_04_f"
		};
	};

	class CleanWaterSource
	{
		name = "Water cooler";
		models[] = 	
		{
			"watercooler"
		};
	};

It depends on the server population and configuration really.

If you're on some server with limited or no safe zones, and all of the good items are at black markets and missions, solo is going to be rough.  If you're playing on a more normal server, or lower population, could work.

If you kill a player or a group of players, unless you are in the middle of nowhere near no spawns, or you are sure there is no one else around, do not loot the body ever, and you wont die. Its not worth the risk.

Only do missions solo if there a multiple missions up. Do the one farthest from spawns and get to a vantage point where you can see as much as possible from the farthest distance.

Take up sniping, you will want to do it a lot more often if you want to survive solo for a longer period of time.

The buying a truck thing is a good idea, but dont drive it around. I would hide it somewhere close to where a decent amount of loot spawns, like in the woods or behind rocks, and then loot the area, run to truck, deposit loot, run back, repeat. Then drive it to trader and sell the cargo.
