Sounds interesting, but wrecks up my rampage through the Firefly hospital with flamethrower habit.

You know what would be cool? If you actually played it like it was real. Pick up everything, play on survival, if you die ONCE, restart the WHOLE game.

What I like to do is never restart an encounter, even if it was the most well-thought out stealth plan ever, and I try to stretch each gunfight out. So like, if I ever get even the slightest indication that I might get shot or out-numbered, I'll run back and break line of sight. Then I'll come in from a new angle, and try something new. So I'm not really putting on any self-imposed limits, but rather I'm role-playing - playing as I would if I was really there.

 

I still collect supplies, upgrade weapons and all that stuff, because that's what I would do.

 

Still, trying to do a survivor run while putting stupid limits on yourself, like only use the bow and one arrow, would add a really interesting dynamic to the game. I think...maybe it would actually be frustrating as hell. lol.

My first 12 weeks I didn't touch any upgrades... I thought that what I purchased didn't carry over to my survivors.

I was an idiot... BUT I SURVIVED!

Well you have no picture to prove it, so I dont believe you anyway.
But I will say this. When I beat the game on hard I had all the weapons upgraded and ammo maxed to the point of not being able to hold any more. I never even used the flame thrower because I was so sure a bloater would show up and I wanted to be ready. I was pretty upset when I realized I was at the end and all of it was completely wasted. Hard mode is definitely Easy. Haven't tried Survior yet but the thought of losing the hearing sounds more annoying than complicated.

Yes, this is great. This is way more impressive than limiting yourself for no reason at all. This would separate the boys from the men Smiley Happy

Epic bump.

 

I got the platinum yesterday and now I want a new challenge.  I'm going to try the OP's challenge.  No special weapons, uprgrades etc.  Just pistol, revolver and shotgun.  Also, I won't craft health kits and only use health kits gifted to me by an ally like Ellie.

I'm aware that this thread has been around for awhile, but I just wanted to say that it is entirely possible to sneak past the final wave of infected you'll face in the tunnel near the end of the game.
