Best strategy for weapons and such
« on: September 21, 2011, 12:22:52 PM »
Hey,

What gives me the most bang for my buck?

Upgrading my weapons and armour to the highest classes or purchase every weapon but leave them at class 1? It doesn't seem possible to do both because everything is so freaking expensive...

Cheers,
Craig

So, the approach I have taken is buy all the weapons and upgrade my most powerful one until the next one comes along.

I have upgraded all my armour too and seem to be doing fairly well now...

The shotgun, machine gun and rifle seem to do more damage so I would upgrade them first.  You can see the damage value for current and upgrade.  Something like the nun chuck, level 22 or around that, costs more but doesn't do as much damage. 

Use the lower value items to finish off the zombies.  Hard to do with so little time but you will catch it if you're thinking that way.

What would be the advantage of owning all the weapons?  Is there any passive advantage if you don't use them in battle?

During zombie fights :
- attack : weapon selected attack coef
- defense : armor selecte defense coef +/- weapon selected defense coef

So avoid to use a negative defense weapon if you know that you will not finish fights with it.

During duel fights (against players)
- duel score : sum of all weapons and armors coefs

So buy/upgrade the most weapons/armors to protect you.

So for a duel, ALL weapons are being used?

yes all weapons and armors are used to calculate your duel score used to fights other players or defend you.
For duel, it's not an attack and defense, it's a global score.

I don't understand what a negative defense weapon is... can you explain... please? I think you mean a weapon with zero defense... right?...

As I understand it... Some weapons are hard to handle and you can't defend yourself as well in close combat so you lose points after using them when attacked.

If you check your weapons stats, you have 2 parameters :
- attack
- defense

Attack is the coef that you have to fights zombies
Positive Defense provide a penalty at the zombies answer
Negative Defense provide a bonus at the Zombies answer

Example :
weapon : 45 attack, +6 defense
when zombie will attack you, he could attack you 55 (its shot) - 6 = 49 damages

weapon : 45 attack, -6 defense
when zombie will attack you, he could attack you 55 (its shot) + 6 = 61 damages

So when you select a weapon with negative defense, zombies will have highter damage rates.

You could ask : So, why to use these weapons then ?
If you check these weapons, they have highter attack points.

So don't use them at the first attack to avoid the zombie answer,
use them to finalize the fight.

I'm pretty sure the crossbow is the first negative defense weapon - level 10.
