Weirdest kill, Story Mode, practically shoved my rifle muzzle into it's mouth before I fired. I didn't want to miss. When your in game character shoots like crap you don't engage at a distance, instead you draw the target closer to a distance you cannot miss. This time I held my fire just a bit too long... I shot at the same time the game started the melee fight sequence. It knocked me down and started to bring up the menu when the game realized the attacking wolf was dead. My luckiest kill I didn't grab a screenshot of, because there wasn't much to see. And it wasn't that lucky. Could have obtained two wolves in this position next to each other for a much cooler screenshot if the game didn't ignore my mouse click. I was pushing my luck with it anyway, after I got this standing wolf kill I drew the other two wolves one at a time next to this one to try and get a bunch of standing dead wolves next to each other. The second wolf I got jittery and shot it too far away, it fell over as usual. The third I held my fire just milliseconds too long and the game ignored my mouse click. The third wolf mauled me good... i was nearly dead, but no wolf gets away with hurting me without dying! I bandaged one wrist so I could at least equip the flare gun, the third wolf got as far as the front gate at the maintenance yard before a flare bullet smacked into it's head and dropped it dead. That was maybe 80 meters? Distance is hard to tell in the game.
Hi, I am survivorKP, from southern California. I am relatively new to the game, having played it since Steadfast Ranger came out (actually started on the same day of the update). I love this game! It has the right balance of survival challenges and realism, the topic is something that's been a fantasy of mine since I was a young child: go out into the woods and learn to live off the land. I am currently playing survival mode- a mix of difficulties to really bring out the challenge of extreme cold weather survival with super hostile wildlife, but plentiful item spawn and resources forgiving to the new player unfamiliar with all the mechanics just yet. Been mostly in Mountain Town where I chose to start, but making my way to ML, maybe explore towards FM and BR. In real life I know quite a bit about wilderness survival, although having much more limited opportunities to practice. Still, I do what I can, so one day I can move into the wilderness and make a virtual dream a reality (minus the end of the world part).
