Before you load in, go to your blueprints and select metal bow, metal arrows, hunter’s machete and explosive arrows. Then, As soon as you spawn, head to the nearest lockers and pick up as many items as possible.
With aforementioned items, head to the nearest recycler and recycle all your items.
Use the materials from recycling (and breaking boxes) to craft weapons. Make sure you make at least one ranged weapon.
I would also recommend crafting a pouch or some armour.
Once you have crafted your items, you can do one of three things.
- 1) Stay at the edge of the map and avoid combat until the darkness closes in.
- 2) Hunt down other players and try get them out of the way.
- 3) Use a trampoline to get onto the rafters and shoot people with bows.
