Tips for Easy Mode
Start with the mosin. Reload and bring an extra 25 rounds. Buy mosin ammo and 7.62 ammo every resey from all vendors. With mosin and a scope you can snipe and 1-2 hit most enemies before they react.
When you are low on mosin ammo you will use sks. You will start with a low durability sks from a bandit until you get one from a quest or buy it. You should do runs as quick as possible.
Don’t be greedy. Get a backpack, some armor and then night vision once you do barman quests and unlock the green army quest line you will have access to more ammo, armor, bags and nvg.
