I always die at the first encounter
Yeah, as soon as I meet someone in the "wasteland" that´s it for me...
mostly it´s a dogman I attract by getting my first half decent loot who kills me.
Some things that happened:
No combat traits, found some decent stuff, among them a rifle without ammunition(of course!), a dogman appears, I try to kill him with my multi tool, game over.
I have melee and tough traits, find a multitool again, try to fight a dogman and game over.
Having the hide perk I try running away, covering my tracks and hiding, but the beast immediately finds me and kills me.
No matter how far I run they always get me, and if I have to fight with some damn multitool I die when trying to face them.
I restarted at least 15 times by now and never, ever was I able to escape or best the first foe I encountered.
Am I doing something terribly wrong?
€: So I just barehandedly killed a barehanded bandit, who was always retreating from me. It took AGES to kill that guy but the left shoe and plastic bag were sure worth it. :D
Then I looted an open field with max security, but, sure enough, a dogman found me. I tried running and hiding, oh how I tried, but the damn creature was glued to me. Gnaaah.
