Alrighty, myself and Nomicakes cleared out of Zelenogorsk and headed up to Green Mountain to raid the huts. Nothing of major value until we got half-way up Kurgan, when lo and behold, a tent! Some poor **** had stashed all his medical supplies and STANAG clips. They were ours now. Contemplated destroying the tent with a grenade but we were feeling kind, and left it with the basics.
We reach the western deer stand, locate nothing of major importance. Northern deer stand is similarly uneventful, eastern deer stand results in another STANAG clip. We hump up the mountain to check for any goodies at the military spawn, nothing of value. However Nomicakes did get fright when he desynced while I was mowing down zeds, only to see them all suddenly die with no bullet shots. Fear of a silenced assassin abound! No such danger though, and we make our way out to the north-east to search Pogorevka.
During our travels today we've figured that the zeds are definitely much easier to aggro during the day, but also just as easy to lose if you do it properly and use the landscape/surrounding structures to your advantage. We enter the large residential and pick up assorted goodies, including a few cans of beans and some .45 ACP for Nomicakes' 1911. By this point we are shaking violently due to the massacre of undead that took place a few seconds earlier, fortunately some painkillers were not to far away.
We decide to make a bolt across the street into the church, hopefully to find some more medical supplies and ammo. We get past the first row of pews when suddenly I hear footsteps on dirt. I don't even ask Nomicakes, I immediately advise over comms "MOVEMENT OUTSIDE LEFT. GO PRONE AIM LEFT DOOR". We both take up positions on opposite sides of the church behind the pews, nervously awaiting our visitors. TAKA-TAKA-TAKA-TAKA, we unload a clip each into what turned out to be two Jack Nicholson impersonators wielding axes and running straight for us. My assailant manages to land two kits while I reload while Nomicakes demolishes his target without so much as a scratch on him. These were our first kills together where we had plenty of warning and we were ready. This however didn't stop our adrenaline from racing and our hands and arms were shaking on our controls. We calm ourselves, loot the bodies (I score myself a Makarov, a czech backpack and tons of ammo), and make a hasty exit towards the nearby deer stands. The northern deer stand was uneventful, while the southern contained an AKS Kobra with accompanying ammo. I stash these in my newfound backpack. We make a campfire and attempt to cook the meat of a pig we had just murdered, only to realise the pigs are glitched and no meat was available. We pack up and leave, disappointed.
We head north-west along the treeline towards Rogovo. I decide it might be worth checking the northern deer stand again for respawned loot, turns out that was a good idea. Another M16A2 and accompanying ammo. I loot the 2 STANAG clips (now full inventory of ammo, yeah boi) and continue north to Rogovo. We army-crawl up to the large residential as to avoid further zombie massacre, and locate nothing of major value. The rest of this afternoon's adventures consisted of looting with little success.
Our adventures will continue this evening when Mugen gets home.
