    as usual I was just doing a standard green zone run, unarmored and only a spear equipped as always. Suddenly I agro 2 fast biters wich I could still take. As I counted my hp and their dmg I knew I was gonna be safe as always considering every time I think I’m not gonna cut it I just bail and go home.. and then like a magic wonder this floater boater popped up, never even saw him coming :( And poof.. my military bp was gone with the wind.. I guess you all know the feeling when something occurs in a game, you die or whatever.. and then you just stare at your screen with an open mouth for like 5 to 10 minutes.. your wife asks a simple question and you almost kick her out of the house out of frustration.. I never thought it would hurt this much :( Feels like my char is missing a leg now he’s back to the 15 storage rooms..
    Well it’s a story of nothing.. but I needed it to get out in the world so here it was. Maybe Someone can relate to it and speak some wise words to cheer me up :D

    Yeaaah.. well I don’t :D 4 engine parts short.. so according to my plan I’ll be jumping in the sky somewhere next week after some alpha runs :) It also has 4 slots with it right? That’ll definitely ease the pain a bit.. still got one steel plate left from a shipwreck run so I’m praying on getting another :) Thx!

    Lmaoooo

    It gets better. More annoying after awhile but not a huge loss

    Also, you'll get more experience and will rarely ever die after a certain point. Only time I die now is when I zone out and don't pay attention.

    Yes chopper has 4 storage slots. It's nice because whatever is placed in it automatically transports home if u die

    I'm very sorry. :( Rowdy and Survivalist informed me that military backpack makes no sense. It gives some extra slots, but losing it is a pain. So I will never craft it. I was informed before I went into a dead end street. I use basic backpack, and store my stuff in bunker lockers and at homebase.
    Btw just an opinion, going to GZ with a spear and naked is a suicide. You can never know what will happen.

    Idk what he said but I never said it "makes no sense". I probably said it's not worth stressing over or not a huge deal in your case, since you were stressing about having to make one. It doesn't "need" to be a huge priority. But it def, 100% makes sense to make one if you can ...

    They probably said it MAKES sense to craft it. Sometimes I wonder how you interpret things.....

    Yeah I can't honestly remember what was said but I know it wasn't that the military backpack made no sense and not to craft it. I haven't used anything else since the day it was available.

    Haha :D If you can craft it, craft it m8 :p You’ll be able to take in 3 runs what you normally do in 4. Never drop anything and just take it all :)
    And I know what you mean but you just have to be carefull, I’m doing GZ naked with a spear all the time, with the military bp for weeks now. Never died, just be cautious. I was caught unaware now and I’ll make sure it doesn’t happen again next time.

    Rowdy1418 and Survivalist, I beg your pardon Sirs.

    Another gamer said something about military backpack to me, but I can't remember his name, and what he told me exactly. He said something that it will take me 3 weeks to get the steel plates for the crafting, and it will take a second losing it.

    That's not him saying it's pointless though. It is a good point. That you can lose it very easily after grinding for awhile just to get it. But def doesn't mean it's pointless. I think you might've just interpreted it wrong

    Bro, feel this pain.

    I was out farming for ores on the RZ, filled my mil bag with only iron ores, baux and some useful loots in the crate including an AK and a wrench. I thought it was my lucky day. A toxic bloater popped out of nowhere, i started chopping him with machete and when he reached 100+ health, a skull crusher dude appeared.Didn't notice i only have 3 bandages left. My health dropped to 36 when I tried to escape but this skull crusher dude's so fast he caught up to me and bashed me in my head. All the loots are gone together with my mil bag.

    Anyways... If you die unexpectedly like that there's a trick that "SOMETIMES"
    yeah, WORKS ONLY SOMETIMES.

    Hard close the game or turn off your data or wifi or immediately shutdown your phone. If you are lucky... you'll be logging in back to the game outside the zone you are in :)

    Just remember to be very cautious everytime even if this trick works.

    After awhile you'll be able to tell if it's an AI coming in or z. The wolves are super fast and players kinda zig zag a little and if they have a gun will stop. Whenever I see a dot running in I always move a bit to see how it responds. Not 100% but I got it down pretty good
