Can you get HERC or infected at the same time? 

 

Or is it strictly one or the other?

They're hard. I struggle to complete them with average gear, but I'm also terrible at raiding. How difficult it will be will depend on a few things. 

 

- The maps are randomised, so you'll get a different mix of Infected or HERC maps each time

- The layouts are randomised, enemy positions can change too

- Did I mention there's traps? Yeah, they move around as well

 

The idea is that you'll have to be prepared for both outcomes. You go in with all long rifles, you're probably going to end up as HERC infected food. 

Sounds like i'm gonna have a chance at least,  thanks for the info con.

I'm assuming that after the Raid "ends" the Island will stay open as a loot spot right?

It's one or the other. We wanted to have a hard line between the two types of missions.

Hmmm, will there be destructible stuff? If we need to bring anti Barricade or Tower Explosives, or a Sword instead of the shield and hammer... Sounds good!

AND BOWS!

You know what they say about assuming ;)

 

You can only loot when you're doing the raid, which is limited to a 24 hour cycle for everyone. We have done this very intentionally.

@Con, yeah i figured that.

 

But is there an End? i mean, what happens with the Island once all 3 locations are secured by the survivors...

 

Are we going to roll the credits? Or is this going to be a forever-flowing event that keeps happening? I guess it'd be the latter, since players that haven't joined now would probably want to do something like this later.

 

Then again: I'd like to be able to say: "I witnessed the raid on HERC young grasshoppers."

Assuming we succesfuly complete an island raid and get the max haul unique item will that affect our chances to roll another unique while playing normal city maps?

 

If so, that may result in people playing only the island raids, or if they want to focus more on finding lower lvl items avoiding island raids completely.

I personally feel that would be bad. Wouldnt want to see an island being a restriction in item finding strats we use in any way. Would be much better if it was something of a bonus, an icing on the cake of Dead Zone if i can put it that way.

So when you say that we're locked into it until we either complete or fail it, does that mean that we have to play all three raiding missions Individually?

 

Or do we have to play through all three of them in one big sitting - without any breaks, chances to change gear/weaponry, or time to heal?

Minor Detail here, the first few pictures from the loading screen we're dated 2018.

 

I assume they are showing the aftermath of the shit that's about to hit the fan.

The missions can be played at your leisure. But, you cannot change weapons or gear, or heal injuries in between. The survivors are LOCKED to the Raid until you complete it or abandon.

 

All part of the challenge :)
