  1. When you shoot an animal, every shot has a small chance to be a critical hit. Headshot criticals are insta-kill even on the biggest game, such as the bear and moose. However, if the RNG isn't kind, it's possible to get multiple shots at a moose and still fail to bring it down. They have a lot of hit points, and at lower skill levels, your shots with your weapon don't deal much damage. Leveling up your weapon skill can help with this, since it'll add extra damage per hit, even if it's not a critical. Regarding your bear, it's likely that you did hit the bear with a shot, causing it to
  2. New mob "mountain goat" confirmed!
  3. Did you know: The maximum condition possible of a torch pulled from a fire is 50%? Did you know: the condition of a torch equals the minutes it will burn? When you're doing a cooking marathon, using the above knowledge can assist you in maximizing your efficiency. Assuming you're cooking 1kg chunks of rabbit meat for 38 minutes, light up a torch after you've started cooking. Spend 38% of the torch's burn time collecting sticks, arriving back exactly when your food is cooked. Never waste a minute! This is also a great method of avoiding your torch going out on Interloper, when yo
  4. When you set a snare, it begins a 12 hour timer. After being set for 12 hours (or when you return if you've left the area and come back) it will check whether the snare has caught a rabbit. If the check is successful, a dead rabbit is created at the snare and the snare is disabled. The number of snares in the area has no negative effect on this check as far as can be detected, so it's usually smart to set a large number of snares in the area of a rabbit grove and check them once or twice a day. Some claim that rabbit snares return decreasing numbers over time. I've not seen any solid
  5. This is a known unique feature of Hushed River Valley. Instead of the usual deer carcass, there's a chance for a moose carcass to spawn in its location instead. The location isn't static, and is random based on map seed. Sometimes you don't get one at all, sometimes you get lucky. Lucky you!

  7. The Ravine. With no wolves to worry about, several rabbit groves for trapping, plenty of wood, two caves for shelter, and a nearby crafting table at the dam, the Ravine is the perfect holiday home for the weary cabin fevered Interloper. You can spend your days gathering wood, boiling water, harvesting bunnies and just listening to the blizzard howl outside your cave while the fire crackles. Eventually you'll want to go explore new regions, fight wolves, and get mauled by a bear, but for pure relaxation, nothing beats the Ravine.
  8. Broken Railroad suffers a few problems. First, there's no unique loot found here. Unlike Timberwolf Mountain's Summit or Hushed River Valley's caches and Mysterious Signal Fire, nothing amazingly important spawns here. Second, to get to the forge, which is arguably the most attractive feature of Broken Railroad, you almost have to walk straight past the forge at Spence's in Forlorn Muskeg. It simply takes fewer resources and time to aim for Spence's forge instead. Third, there's no good sources of coal close to the forge. Beyond the first few pieces that spawn in the shed, it's
  9. Did you know that you can use the escape key to cancel harvesting meat? This is useful for a few reasons. First, this can be used to harvest two approximately equal sized pieces of meat from a rabbit. If your rabbit has something like 1.3kg of meat, you'd normally end up with a 1kg and a 0.3kg piece. Instead, if you harvest the full amount but press escape when the circle is halfway complete, then harvest again fully, you'll end up with two pieces of meat, each one 0.65kg or so depending on how accurate you were with cancelling. This means both pieces will take the same amount of tim
  10. if I plan an early Summit to Timberwolf Mountain on Interloper, there's a fairly linear route to guarantee enough calories that I shouldn't require food, merely a bedroll or enough cloth for two snow shelters plus a hacksaw. Coming fully rested from Pleasant Valley, I usually grab a half dozen birch barks and two rabbits before hitting the Mountaineer's Hut. Dropping the rabbits at the hut and warming up while I harvest them, I set them to cook for the half hour or so while I bag the two other rabbits down on Crystal Lake. The four should fill my calorie meter, and give me enough time to
  11. I'd predict Ash Valley being between Broken Railroad and Hushed River Valley. From the appearance of the teaser art, the cliff coloration bears resemblance to HRV. The signs of logging mean it would logically be connected to the Great Bear railroad for transport, so I'm guessing the connection to Ash Valley will be either across the Broken Bridge at the end of the Broken Railroad or through the lower ravine below it. We might possibly see a connection to Hushed River Valley through here too, giving two separate 'stub' maps an additional exit. This would be an interesting choice that
  12. Mountain Town Milton House Aside from the spawn in the pantry, I also discovered one in a cupboard. However, a second run failed to produce either. Seems this isn't a guaranteed location.
  13. I find that, so long as you're able to avoid hypothermia, the penalties for cold don't have too much impact. Provided you can rest at a positive temperature, a good night's sleep will fix all your ills from the day's misadventures. Good luck on your Pleasant Valley run! I did that one as my first run too, though I started at the Picnic Spot and therefore hit Thomson's Crossing first. After there, a run to the Farmstead via the Barn, a loop to Signal Hill, a blizzard worth of clothing repairs, and an early morning climb up to Prepper's Abandoned Cache via the Crash Site set me up for a Tim
  14. I can verify the Summit of Timberwolf Mountain does not contain guaranteed syrup spawns in the cargo containers or corpse. Checked myself, so looks like it's a semi-random spawn on the corpse at best.
  15. The beauty of this event is that there's a built-in goal for more experienced players too. I'm currently syrup hunting. Still have no clue where they might hide that golden nectar of the gods out at Hushed River Valley, but I'm sure I'll find it eventually!
