Re: Dying Light (from Dead Island Devs -- PS3, PS4, PC, Xbox 360, Xbox One -- Feb 201

Really getting into this game and upgraded and crafting and so far running and parkouring around zombies. But, the more stuff you do, the more money to buy weapons and upgrades and Iíve just scratched service I think. Saw a very big dude with hammer. He was scary. Any way to kill him? Still getting fun...

Nicknamed..."Slug-go".....fire is a good choice with a few Molotov Cocktails. Then using any melee with fire & shock helps. Use any of the surroundings to your advantage....like gas cans and cars that can explode. It's a hoot to just throw fire crackers at him, all the zombies come to him and he'll send them flying. Just watch his pattern....he'll drag that pole with concrete and then whip it over for a smackdown....half the time that's when you can strike but sometimes he'll do a spin I think...

But you really need the Bow and use the elemental arrows. By far that's the most versatile weapon in the game. You get the opportunity to get after reaching Survivor 9 at one of the Quartermasters in the Safe Zones. Invest in it and the elemental arrows....a Explosive Arrow to the head works wonders.

Glad you are enjoying it...it is a fun and funny game rolled into one......on the Air Drops...use your arsenal and surroundings to your advantage. If you get there and zombies are around, chunk some firecrackers off and lead them away followed by a fire bomb. I assume you're not high enough for the Survivor>Camouflage Perk....that is A Must To Have Perk when it becomes available especially for solo...even in co-op in certain areas you need it.

I've tried this game twice and given up to play something else at the same place each time - the first night-time mission where you have to go from one place to another. Why won't they just let me do it in the morning ?

A easy way to gain XP is go out at night and get the 'Survive The Night" honor....and you can do it without so much lifting a finger and will help opening up some much needed skills....

Where the Double Doors are leading out of the first main Safe Zone....you can park almost right past the threshold and make sure you knell down and don't move. If they do come if you time it right jump back inside and they'll do the same getting zapped by the Ultra Violet and you can take them down. You can also do the same to some buildings to the left...go up on the roof or in a room but always knell and don't move. The "Glowies" are pretty bad at first and need to be careful.

Re: Dying Light (from Dead Island Devs -- PS3, PS4, PC, Xbox 360, Xbox One -- Feb 201

Yeah, I was out at night and these horrible things kept chasing me and all I did was sprint through. Got crazy skill points or whatever. It was really terrifying. Been awhile since a game did that...

Still wish I could just blast them with an unlimited ammo shot gun, but not that type of game. Actually takes some thought and some missions really puzzlers getting in someplaces. I admit to getting a little help on youtube a couple times, but fun to figure out on own. That sixth sense or whatever that shows you collectibles and where mission objective is is so useful and keep forgetting to use it. Love buying the newer weapons. The Lacerator is a nice one. Donít seem to know how to upgrade that one. But love crafting, buying, selling...

Want to make some boosters I have plans for. How long do they last? And when with shop how do I get the deal of day? It sometimes shows stuff I need, but donít know how to buy. Itís on right hand side, blinking and stuff, but canít get it or buy it...

Anyway, I think iím just tipping surface and canít wait for what monsters are yet to come and see how this story unfolds and save people or die trying. How many missions? How long game? And when do shotguns appear? And thereís this mission Holy tunnels or something where you got to cover manholes, but so many zombies. Donít think Iím ready for that...

Also, lock picking, whether hard or medium is becoming really easy. Sometimes I donít even break 1. Does it get harder than hard?

K&A, I have no idea where youíre talking about to just knell and wait, but would love to earn xp and stuff...

Easy XP At Night.....



This is what we did at first but there are Safe Houses that you can just go out and run around, grapple, jump fences, climb in a tight circle to get the Agility Points....and where those doors are in the video; just right outside them you can knell and don't move and get the Survive The Night bonus.. but if you go out and just run around staying close to the Safe House...and you'll get the points. Just watch where they are and go in the opposite side or something. The more you climb, jump, grapple the more points. Just be mindful of where the Zombies are.

Boosters...I think a couple of minutes but I believe you can make them last longer

Lock Picking...I think there is a Master and that one you have to be dead on...like not even a 1/16" off

Re: Dying Light (from Dead Island Devs -- PS3, PS4, PC, Xbox 360, Xbox One -- Feb 201

this game really gets addicting. i mean really all i'm doing is running and jumping for my life and doing quests for everybody, but having a ton of fun doing it.

are all skills just 1 point or can you accumulate?

As I recall...the vendors will put up the 'Limited Time Special' that can be a bit confusing because it's for selling items and ones they are buying (paying top dollar for). You might see weapons and even plants.
