Well, son of a b____. I was doing well. Then I died.
I started off alone, unarmed, and thirsty in Elektrozavodsk. There were a lot of people there, I heard gunfire, had to get some water and then get the hell out of the city."OMFG."
I also saw a couple of dead men laying in the street. I was able to roll their bodies really quick, and got my first weapon off of one. A damaged baseball bat."Enticing."
At a rail yard east of the city, I climbed a fuel tank to get my bearings."Uhhh...."
The bat didn't do so well. The first zombie I encountered slapped the s___ out of me. But I prevailed and moved on."That's what you get! Yeah!"
Nearby, I found this. "Huh. Well, dam."
So I went for a swim.
After this, I needed to figure out where I was going to go. I was still inadequately armed, had precious little supplies, and needed to avoid other people. It took me a while to get my bearings."Uhhh....huh."
I made my way through several deserted villages, even finding some that hadn't been looted already. My equipment improved as I scavenged.
I found a pristine fire axe, which is about the best melee weapon available. It drops zombies with a single hit."I wish this car worked. I'm tired of walking."
I decided to go to Black Mountain, where there is a castle ruin infested with zombies."I did this in Germany! Except the part where I axe zombies. I didn't do that in Germany."
I cleared out the zombies, made my way to the top, and showed the world what I think of it. You can see Krasnostav in the distance."I hope you can see this. I'm doing it as hard as I can!"
Near the mountain was the town of Krasnostav. Beyond that, an airfield. Why go to an airfield? Guns. Military bases have guns. They're also extremely dangerous, because everybody makes a beeline for them. This one is well inland, so it wasn't as likely to be overrun with teams of players, but it was dangerous.
But there was nothing for it, so I made my way there.
After clearing the first building, and finding little of value, I headed toward the hangars. But another guy was running around, and he was armed, so I hid and let him pass."Oh s___ oh s___ oh s___ oh s___..."
He made a beeline for the building I'd just been in. I thought he had a rifle, but it was slung. If I got the drop on him indoors...yes. Fortune favors the bold. So I snuck back into the building and got the drop on him. I murdered the crap out of him with my axe, Gimli style."How do you like me now??"
Then I looted his corpse, and low and behold...my beloved Python."It feels as if my arm is complete again. Thanks, bro."
I then made my way to the control tower. This is especially dangerous. It has good loot, but it's exposed, and I have noone to watch my back. I looted a corpse at the base of the building, finding a ton of M16 magazines, so I'd be all set when I found an M4. But I went into the tower. This proved to be a mistake.
There was nothing of value at the top, and as I was going to leave, another player was coming up. He turned and ran, as I had my Python out and menacing, but there was another dude, better armed and better equipped. A standoff ensued."Poke your head out. I dare you."
I was waiting for him at the top of the stairs, and he was waiting for me below. There was a ladder off the top of the building, but that's risky. You're very exposed.
Before I could decide, however, somebody, don't know who or where from, shot me in the head and that was all she wrote.
Circle of life and all that.
