Of course you might just be trying to lure people into your field of view for some sniping action
Are you honestly suggesting that noobs (the majority of whom spawn around the 2 main towns) should run up to Berezino to find a weapon? 9/10 times you can walk into the Balota airfield singing christmas carols and nobody will notice. I'd rather get to Berezino or NW with an ak/m16 than with a flashlight... despite the larger population in the southern areas the skill and weapons level is going to be lower.
A noob is probably going to last about 3 seconds in Berezino on any populated server, and they're not going to be able to find any of the inland towns until they're acquainted with the map/game world. The fact is that running north is a waste of time for a new player, they want to be in a populated area and learning mechanics etc for 30 minutes rather than spending 30 minutes running and 5 minutes learning before they die and have to run back north again.
NO he is simply suggesting that you DON't have to run to chenro/electro to find decent gear.
Eg if you are West side of Cherno. run northish to the power lines you will see one lot go off to the right and some going straight ahead.
follow right side you come across 3 cow shed indy buildings and some residential buildings. back track a bit to the road (the power lines cross it head north you hit a small town nazed head west from there along dirt road and your in kozlova and close to bor with 5-6 dear stands + heaps of barns and residential buildings. very minimun cross country navigation required.
follow the power lines straight and you hit kozlova/drozhino and end up in zelenogorsk. lots to loot on the way.
spawn in komrovo head north west along the road and hit bor. then as above to zelenogorsk.
spawn in kamenka follow road north pass 3 dear stands within 200m of road and pass pavlolo then zeleno
spawn eastern cherno or electro (haven't done much ) but there is pusta that is easy to get to via power lines/roads and it leads up to staroye opening the centre map to stary then NW airfields.
further east you have small towns and spawns to get to bresino.
follow the road if your not good at going cross country it will take a bit longer but your less likley to become lost and most if paved roads will eventually lead to a town. or a lootable building that you should be able to find on a map.
sure if your near the airfield check it or check the outskirts of cherno if your near it. i do but i'm heading away from there as quick as i can. also i may stop by the hospital if i can get there for some medical supplies but i can find them at dear stands if needed.
so in hte time its taken me to write this (15-20min) you could have spawned near cherno and be looting the 3 farm houses north of vysota hill. or asking in side who is shooting in cherno and dying to 20 zombies with your torch.
