The title says it all really, I am crap at this game, due to both not great comp running it and me in general. WHat mods are best for me to get to grips with the game.
And should I use the WW patch or not to run them?
I didn't make it!
These are more like bits of advice for newbies... but I'd keep them in mind anyways.
1: My advice is to shoot 'n scoot. That is, don't just hunker down behind a bit of cover and wait for them to come to you. You'll be flanked and subsequently raped. 2: Don't run into anomalies. Yeah, I know it sounds stupid but I died twice now from backing into one in an attempt to get away from another. :uhoh: 3: Blind dogs. Fuck blind dogs... refer to point #1 4: Help a fellow stalker out. Once I got in a spot of trouble with some bandits and just as it looked like I was going to die some dude I saved earlier came out of nowhere and blew their heads off. So yeah, if you've got a spare medkit and you see a wounded stalker crying for help... do so. 5: Speaking of bandits, remember those pricks that captured one of the newbies in your first quest? They keep repopulating like rabbits. In the beginning I had myself a nice little cottage industry going simply by shooting bandits and re-stealing their stuff. :bandit: 6: Shotgun blasts point-blank to the face hurt. A lot. This works both ways so keep that in mind. 7: If you wanna go into the zone proper don't bother bribing soldier or risking the electric anomalies. To the east there's a break in the fence that'll get you in for free and unharmed. 8: If it looks like it wants to kill you, it probably does. 9: Don't go poking around in the dark corners of the zone at night.
LOL! Great advice :)
