Re: Survivor difficulty?

A few tips...

 

  • Save you're arrows for stealth situations
  • Pick up you're arrows 
  • Try to aim for the head
  • Throw bottles/bricks to distract enemies
  • When possible just try to slip by enemies without killing them
  • Melee is the best way to kill lone enemies
  • If you have to, shoot an enemy once, then finish off with melee
  • Never use a shiv to kill an enemy

Thats all I got!

Always us the brick/bottle technique. Throw at human enemies, you'll have a human shield. Throw it at infected and have a melee weapon, Instant kill.

got the Survivor + trophy last night!:smileyvery-happy: Took me 11hrs 32mins and 48 deaths lol. The odd thing I noticed is when you skip a cutscene, the game will still add the length of that cutscene to your total time played.

 

Now on to the MP trophies. Hope its easy.

I just got to the University on Survival, but I thought id post some tips anyway.

 

 If you're using health kits, then you're doing it wrong. I have not used a single one yet (2 in inventory), but i HAVE upgraded max health for a "free" healthkit to get out of red health earlier in the game (around the suburbs). If necessary Ill upgrade max health a second time (Joel's upgrade pills/flowers are plentiful). Dont worry about going through long stretches of the game with low health. There are very few instances in which you will be in a fight and you may take dammage. Plus, the game has a way of recharging your health periodically.

 

DO craft things as you get the supplies. Ive heard some people on here say, "dont craft unless you have to, wait till you know what you need." I disagree. Keep an eye on what supplies you have, and craft accordingly. For example, whenever I have the ability to craft 2 molotoves, then I go ahead and craft one. Why? So you can keep collecting supplies. Theres no excuse to not collect an item that says "full," if youre able to craft something using that supply. I always have at least 2 mollies on me, usually 3. never craft bombs or meles--save those parts for Shivs.

 

most of the other stuff has been covered. ill edit if necessary :smileyhappy:

I must have did it wrong because I crafted 2 or 3 health kits and used maybe 5  of them  because I did not want to wait around for Ellie to toss me one.  As Ellie I had to use one or two kits to make it through the two swarms of infected.  At the end of the game, I had 2 or 3 of everything.
