I'm up in the hills behind Elektro atm. I started off on the coast near Kamyshovo, just on sunrise, wandered onto the outskirts of town and could not see any zeds. The game kept freezing and i shot all of my ammo into the air in game rage, bad move because when i respawned i was empty
Walked up to the bustop and i could hear flies so i looked around and found two dead guys.Looted and got some extra beans, an empty bottle and ammo..yes. Lucky.
One of those hopping zeds took interest in me so i backpedalled slowly and took him out, fat gut zed then came at me so i downed him, then blackshirt zed ran around the corner so i popped him. Man im outta here, i headed up into the hills (three valleys) my plan being to work my way up into Sobor as i have only ventured along the coast and a bit inland so far. I followed the road Northy up to Msta keeping on the edge of the forest line and just ducking into the barns to replenish my ammo.
The zeds seem more alert now too as they seem to be on to me easier than they were before, i ended up with a trail of four hopping freaks that would not go away even after putting more than a kilometre between them and me. I stumbled across a deer hut about 3/4's of the way to Msta in the forest and clambered up, took a swig of water , ate some beans and waited. Sure enough a minute or two later and they came grunting out of the forest.I capped them one by one and then headed on my journey again.
Now somewhere here i backtracked and got lost, the only map i have is the hires Dayz map i run on a second screen, but still i managed to end up lost and had no clue where i was.Sun was up now for about an hour so was loving the daylight. Headed into the forest and skirted a little bunch of huts, 6 zeds around so kept my distance, went back towards the forest, i heard grunting and scuffling really close and stopped, looked around but could not see jack..getting closer..WHERE THE HECK! closer..stuff this..i up and bolted flat biscuit down the side of the mountain, not looking back, noisy as Deliverance! and just as panicky. Reeeeeeeeee reeeeeee!
After 30 seconds i stopped and looked around, nothing.I calmed down and then straght in front of me..a small dam, sweet. Went down and filled my bottles and rewarded myself with some more beans.Yum.I love beans.Looking at my map i was guessing i was now Southwest of Msta and facing roughly Elektro. Giving up on my bush expedition i decided to head to Elektro and grab some hardware.
25-30 odd minutes of bushwalking and hill climbing and i was looking down on the outskirts of Elektro. I headed in from the eastern side , first hut and i scored a crossbow and some bolts.Heard a Mak going off and running outside, got ready for a confrontation but no-one appeared.Continueing in i made it to a three story building and grabbed a knife and some food, lovely.Outside again i moved to the shops and grabbed anothe empty water bottle a heatpack and some ammo for the shottie..hoping to find one soon. Ok time to check the church.
Gunshots.Effin shhotout at the OK Corral! Waited at the edge of the outside of the shops keeping an eye out.Approached by one survivor so i layed down and kept him sighted, he said he was friendly and i saluted, not taking my sights of him i watched him crouch of into the shops.As soon as he was inside i darted over the road and headed for the church, no plans on hooking up after my last few experiences.Few zeds around but none close, i walked into the church and saw my first ghillie suit dude, splayed out on the floor, winchester in hand.Thankyou! Mine. Looks like a right tool here in the city dressed like a mobile hedge. Checked his gear..Alice pack,tent,binocs,hatchet plus general items.Much better. Two more guys dead in church , this must have been the shootout, not hanging around as the Sniper dude has probably already respawned and would be heading back in.
I have enough supplies now to last a good day so i head to the Northern side of Elektro and fill up my 4 bottles at the small pond.Here i take out 3 or 4 more Zeds and grab some wood from a hut. Just as i head up into the forest i see a guy moving slowly too my left..i hit him up and ask if he is friendly..no reply.I am backing away, winnie trained on him , then i see another guy up on the forest line to my right moving slowly..damn, they are flanking me ! I turn and sprint for the forest keeping the flanker on my left and the other guy behind. Crack! A bullet goes close too me , bastids! I angle to my right and hit the forest at full tilt, run up the hill for about 30 seconds in a straight line then dart to my right keeping bushes behind me.Another 30 seconds and i drop under a big tree, turn and have my winnie up and ready. I lay prone here for about ten minutes just listening, not breaking cover. Hearing nothing i decide here is as good a spot as anywhere to leave my guy and continue the adventure later.
All up i was in for about 3 hours and have decided i am going loner.Have not killed anyone yet and do not intend to but i just do not trust anyone anymore. Next time i want to see if i can get some antibiotics and some matches and go get myself some live game.Im over these beans.
