So far I've just been driving around running zombies over and hacking away at body parts. I like that I can throw my weapons and push-kick the frick out of somebody. The movement isn't like the FO series (gliding), it actually feels like he's walking/running. And dudes can just randomly jump into MY game and help me??? What?!?!? Baller.
Hint: spend money on upgrade. Mod it.use the frick out of it. Before it gets -50% fix it. Rinse and repeat for all high dmg blades or blunt objects. Carry variety of them and alternate. Don't use the same one over and over again.
Guns: don't bother. It attract more zombies. Save them for punks. There are a ruin of firearms on the island and once you get firearm mods, you can increase death blows. Make em sick. Set em on fire. I usually use them for currency.. Hint: if the dmg on the one you are thinking aboutpicking up is higher-swap it out.
Search everywhere! The more shite you find the more things you can mod.
