Tips & Tricks for Playing Survivalist: Invasion on PC
Keep Your Stats up
Three indicators show the status of your HP in the game on the screen’s top-left corner. Once all three flatline, you die in the game. Try to avoid this since dying is very costly in Survivalist: Invasion. You lose everything you have in your backpack plus any weapons on you. Boosting your stats is as easy as drinking water, hitting the re-generation button at the top underneath your stats, and using first aid kit.
Make use of the Radar Map
Survivalist: Invasion for PC takes you on a long journey full of dangers. Zombies and mutant creatures can attack at any time in the game. The good news is that you do not have to stay on your toes or work on sharpening your reflexes. This is thanks to a Radar Map situated at the top right corner of the game that allows you to spot incoming enemies. Tiny red dots appear on the map indicating the presence of enemies up ahead. Knowing the location and number of enemies beforehand increases your chances of emerging relatively unscathed from the battle. Aiming high and going for headshots will save on ammo and end a fight quickly.
The map is also useful for helping you avoid walking into a losing battle. You can change direction if your stats are low, and the map shows you are about to walk into an enemy-infested area.
Invest in the Best Gear and Weapons
With zombies and mutated bugs around not to mention mutant bosses with superpowers, you will not make it in this game without having the best gear on and being well-armed. Things start with simple things like a baseball bat and plain vest, but you will be able to trade in your old equipment and weapons for something better deeper into play. Direct a substantial amount of your resources toward enhancing your weapons and armor regularly. Knives, shotguns, and assault rifles are great options to have in your arsenal.
Fill Backpack with Essentials During Missions
In Survivalist: Invasion, you can place up to 10 items in your backpack when you head out on your missions. Use this game provision wisely by carrying essentials such as a couple of first aid kits, extra weapons, water, food, and rope. In case you feel like you need to carry more items, it is possible to invest in a travel backpack that allows you to take more loot.
One thing to note is that it is okay to leave a few backpack slots open in case you find something you will need during your mission. Even with a full backpack, the game allows you to clear items to make space for better supplies.
