So I've noticed many people were joining lately and I've decided to help them out by creating a series of commonly asked questions and helpful suggestions and tips from me and the higher leveled and helpful community of DZ1 on Armor Games + Facebook, Particularly Necromancer_ and Frostedd, so kudos to them.
 General Knowledge
Q : What is the level cap?
A : Level 50 On ArmorGames + Facebook , Level 30 on Kongregate
Q : How do I use books?
A : Under your Leader EXP Bar (Top Left Corner), there are 4 squares, click on them.
Q : HOMG I GOT SOME FUEL (Premium Currency), SHOULD I SPEND IT ON HERC KEY CARDZZZ?
A : Our suggestion is not to, since the boxes you retreive as a low level are going to be obsolete as you level up and more than often the box contains more junk than good. Fuel can be used for greater things later on down the road, save it for later if possible. ( Also please note that trading boxes IS NOT RECCOMENDED. Boxes are almost useless and they cost fuel to trade like any item, making it a waste of money!)
Q : I have some money to spend on this game. Shall I spend it on Fuel?
A : I'd suggest buying the DMU, (NOW 30$ USD!) before buying anything else on this game, after that you can spend it on fuel. But as always, please support the Dev's, this is their full time job.
Q : Why should I buy the DMU? And what the heck is that anyways?
A : Its a car which speeds up all your MISSION TIMES (Not raiding) including AUTOMATIC missions to 5m and 15m, respectively. That is quite a shortening from higher level missions so this a good investment if you play this more than often.
Q : What the heck? I just built my Radio stuff and I tried trading some random d00dz and it said "Out Of Range"
A : You're lower than L10, So that means you can only trade up to 5 LEVELS HIGHER. Once you're level 10 and above, you may trade any level.
Q: Feh. I just hit level 10 and my protection wore off, I'm going to be raided like a dog -__-' This game sounds like no fun.
A : Thankfully, that won't happen unless you really ticked someone off or you have a bad defense, If you get raided too often or alot of your survivors are injured, you get FREE PROTECTION. And if you have some fuel to use, place a bounty on them via the bounty office and the bounty hunters will take care of the rest.
Q : So I'm going to seiriously be raided alot?
A : PROTIP : How about in your spare time you help other people's compounds out and have a "Friendly" relationship with your compound neighbors so you become less of a target?
Q : Whats the Max survivors I can have?
A : 10.
Q : WHOA! THERES A FUEL GENERATOR, THANK CON!
A : Not a question, but amazing as it is, yes it is a fuel generator (Which generates fuel for a maximum period of 2 days~), you get 5 fuel extra fuel per upgrade ( A maximum of level 7), but however this device has its drawbacks, for one, it can be raided from and once raided from, you will have to refuel it, even if it had no fuel collected up. AND every time YOU collect it, you will also have to restock it with your Metal, Cloth and Wood.
Q : How do we get fuel?
A : Buying it, Looting it (Random), and using the fuel generator (See above).
Q : So what are the uses of Fuel (ƒ)?
A : Well fuel is pretty versatile in this game, it can be used to buy items from the store, unlock 2x trading slots (See below), trade with other players, speed up your upgrades/scavenging/raids/etc, and craft items from the bench.
Q : Explain this "Trading Slots Upgrade".
A : It allows the player who upgraded to use 2 exclusive slots (Totalling up to 6 slots trade for the one who unlocked) and can use those 2 slots to trade for the base amount of fuel (10) for both players. Making this upgrade useful for players who trade often.
Q: Wha? I just found some grenades, how do you equip them?
A : They're classified as "Active Gear", so you may have a Weapon, Passive Gear, and Active gear, the active gear equip button is next to your passive equipment symbol on your Survivor Loadout. Please note that ALL ACTIVE GEARS are ONE-TIME USES.
Q: How do I show items on chat?
A : Shift click the item in your inventory
Q: How do we trade with one another?
A : Click on someones name and "Trade", please note if you're below level 10, you can trade only with people 5 levels above you
Q : I need some more information on a specific topic, is there some sort of wiki for this game?
A : Yep, the community contributed wiki : http://tlaststand.wi...Last_Stand_Wiki
Q: Can I reset my account?
A: No, Con is the only one that can reset your account, but they only reset the ones that are bugged.
Q: I found a bug, what should I do?
A : Post it on the Bug Reports subsection on this forum
Q: Da fauq? I didn't get everything in the box!
A: No, you will only get one item from any supply box, the item that you will get is selected randomly.
 Suggestions for farther down on the road
Q : Should we recycle our components?
A : No, you will most definitely regret it, some of them, eg. Treated Wood, Nails, Weights, Hardened metal are used in item crafting whilst some are used in building for your storage/workbench/engineering bench and etc.
Q : Should we recycle all of our old weapons and garbage then?
A : Sure, save some inventory space and do that, but make sure not to recycle DeathAdders, these become a useful crafting material for Bulldogs,the most powerful handguns in this game.
Q : I keep hearing about these godly "Unique" guns and "Rare" stuff. Where do I cash in on these awesome stuff?
A : Well, typically these types of items are found EVERYWHERE, yep. Anywhere normal stuff is found, just alot harder to find, exact %'s are unknown until Con tells us.
Q: Can I reset my account?
A: No, Con is the only one that can reset your account, but they only reset the ones that are bugged, and are unrecoverable.
Q : OH MAN! I found this amazing Rare/Unique! But I think its stats are pretty bad. Recycle?
A : DON'T YOU DO THAT. There are collectors and fanatics for certain types of rares, often enough, they will be pretty desperate for it and will give you something way better for it. Just savor it for now and hope someone is Richie Rich.
- I decided to post this for now and edit it later, please give some feedback and suggestions if possible.
