Why can't I Last in this game?????
I've been playing for about 6 months. I had fun at first. I know the game, I know theoretically how to keep my guy alive. I arm him, make him fast, engage at range, drink only sterile water, have botany for the berries, mechanical for the travois.
However, I can't stop dying and relatively early, usually around completing the urn mission. I'll load my guy with a shotgun and multiple shells, and he'll die of sepsis out of nowhere although I dress all wounds. I'll be armed with a rifle, but a blue frog f'er comes out of nowhere and hits me with a slug on the first shot. I want to see what happens but honestly I don't think I'll ever get the chance. I make sure never to fight with melee, never to leave anything to chance, but I'm getting killed everytime anyway. What am I doing wrong.
