    hi all,
    Does anybody else encounter TheB1 *everytime* you go to a red location?
    For me it used to be mostly woods, but now it mountains too. I usually go to a nearby location, and go back - and there he is again.
    At this point red zones are unplayable for me.
    Can we start a petition or something..?

    Just being up front here. “Starting a petition” will not do anything at all.

    Next point. It’s strictly rng. I swear I’ve ran into him 7 or 8 times in a row. It’s ridiculous, but then I won’t see him for a good bit. But yes, it’s random

    Its actually several RNGs checks every x amount of time you remain in the zone. he has a chance to enter every time any Z or AI spawns in

    In oak (red) its spawn no so frequently like as pine or stone (red) zones dont know why.
    In 10 oak visits (red) after 5min play Big one spawns only 2 time but in forest it was 8 times. What is worth pine logs or oak logs? :D

    I know this is a month old but I decided to hit the red pine for firewood thinking of all the people that say they only farm red.....How do you??? Ive just gone there 9 straight times. Last three without motorcycle and no I never drove there. I never got a log. Killed probably 10 or so spitter in all. TBO every single time. Within a minute of being there. Back to green yellow. I’m not wasting time on red just to brag I do it.

    not sure who told you this but please do not farm pine in red zone g/y/g is the way to go

    only go red if you got raider quest to open chests in dangerous locations, find engines, kill TAs, etc...

    Personally couldn’t agree more, I only did red for raiders tasks too. A word to the wise, he spawns in yellow too just less often, I lost my first MBP that way.

    No one told me. Read some posts or what not about farming red zones. Honestly I don’t i green yellow green. I was kinda bored on a cold morning and thought I would “play”. Then it became can I even be here without the big one. Well he showed up within a minute every time. I’ve farmed spire looking for bauxite was desperate for aluminum at time. But red pine is like a no go zone lol

    please dont waste your time with bauxite if you need aluminium go to bunker A I usually get 30 aluminum wires which turns into 15 bars once smelted. The equivalent in bauxite would be 60 ore and a crap tone of coal to convert it. Max I have ever gotten from red lime was 4 bauxite... Like I said waste of time

    Yes. I have quite a bit of wire now. At that time alphas red coupons were very few and far between. I didn’t have the guns for the giants. It was what I had to do then to try. It was before I had the recycler as well

    Everyone has a different opinion. I 99% of time only go to red zones for farming and use a sbm, machetes, and something lower to kill animals. That alone makes some people heads explode cuz it’s dangerous location with expensive weapons, it’s all on what works for you.

    I enjoy the larger amount of resources and better loot, and I enjoy only traveling to one place. If I’m farming iron ore I hit red then yellow on way back.

    yea blind one and VSS suck but that’s what I do. Figure out what works for you, that’s my advice.

    bauxite is crap way to get aluminum though, like said above horde wire from alpha

    problem with farming pine or iron in red is its counter productive. even with my chopper at 8 slots and MBP I cannot possibly carry back all the pine logs or all the iron ore I do not have the slots necessary. So why would I farm there to begin with? I know I can do g/y/g and more often than not carry everything back with minimal risk so why do red if I am farming rss? Also g/y/g yields more meat/animal hide than red alone.

    Unless of course its oak or copper then obviously you do red/yellow/red till you run out of iron tools...

    Oh and obviously I would never bring TBP to red zone thats for raiding only. The risk of getting VSSed vs the benefit of 5 extra slots is just not one that I consider worthwhile.

    I farm all pine with military bp and max chopper no problem, I can’t even fill them with iron if I’m farming that. I also don’t pick up berries or grass etc. strictly meat and wood/iron when I go, unless there’s awesome loot. Either way though even if I end up leaving a stack or two for some reason I’m still completely filling my inventory in one run, with possibility of finding better loot.



    like I said everyone does it different. I’ve done so many redzone farming trips at this point it’s like farm a green for me.
