K, so...

when i am playing, having fun, ect
suddenly a newb comes in
k, no problem he is doing fine

oh no:
newb : what are skillpoints?, do u need to bind them?

don't u hate that when the ask that, i do so i made a small manual with some tips to ...
_____________________________

1st :
level = skillpoint = skill (speed - health - damage/skill)

2nd :
now how do u need to bind them?

easy, open your console and type : bind key "+mouse"
as example i do : bind u "+mouse"
or
u can just do it the other way and go to :
options -> configuration or controls (forgot)

Now i can use that key (u) to set my skills, just hold that key and click on wich skill u want to improve
(those red boxes below with hlt - speed and skill in it)

3th
newbie : why cant i pickup guns?

2 reasons:
- u can only hold 3 guns a time (1 handgun - 2 rilfes or shotguns u decide)
- to use : flamethrower, minigun, sniper or gas tank u need skills
- min skill u need to use these guns is 10

4th
these are not really tips but those are thing i do:

- never drop guns when still full (waste of ammo, and they are always good to use)
only when there is no ammo anymore (u can also reload so)

- never ruch a group of zombies alone with a low damage gun 'fatal thing to do'

- when in transformation mode : if u don't want to be zombie, there are 2 ways to prevent that (depends on map and players)
- jump off a cliff, bridge or something that kills u automaticly
- if u are lucky try to let another zombie player kill u

- when u have a gas tank be sure u got a gun ready to shoot it
(some people run to that gas tank to steal it from u)

- when out of ammo with no guns ask for backup or run away to get a gun

- when zombie just kill what u can kill, in my opinion killing other players is a part of the game,

- ALL guns are good to use, some people are glad to say they have "the best gun" in my opinion, WRONG

- aim for the head, and don't spray (holding mousebutton all the time)
shoot in burst, gives more damage and wont spread the bullets through the entire body

- don't stand still for a long time, zombies notice that and will hunt u (bad thing if u have no weapons and if u are slow on speed)

- complete objectives as quick as u can, after that u got enough time to kill as much as u want

- when player zombies hunt u, try to kill them in the first place, if u know u are not gonna make it, RUN

- like this one above, if u see a zombier player hunts another player 'teammate'
help him

K, those are a few tips i typed up here,
if u got more feel free to reply and post that tip, i will add them in this list

________________________________________________________________

oh and here is an small update about the zombie section

well if u don't know yet, u can also play as a zombie, cool eh

if u want to play as a zombie, just let zombies attack u (no player zombie's)
and u will transform
- a zombie CAN'T kill u, only player zombies can
when transformed your guns disapear (duh) and u can only attack with your hands
( like the skin tbh

newbie : cool, i'm a zombie now, how do i get back human

- at the top of the screen on the left there is msg that says: hunt for braaains (or something like it)

u can kill : players (human) or marines
notice u need to kill 2/3 marines or 1 player to spawn back as human,

after u killed the ones u chosed for, a popup box appears at the top right

saying : respawn as human
click one it using your "mouse key" and when u die u respawn as human again

if all objectives are done, mostly the last thing u need to do is run to the escape zone,
remember when u entered that zone u CAN't play as human anymore untill next map
if u ran to it, u can either go spectate mode or play as zombie (a popup box appears then in the top right corner saying : play as zombie )

guess thats enough to know about the zombie 'thing'

also know: that some server's kick u when u kill human players
or poeple begin to flame, whine, blame at u for killing him

imo, killing human players as a zombie is part of the game

_____________________________________________________________

i hoped u like this thread because many newbies should like this one

notices :
my english sucks a bit so mind my spelling and stuff
to bad i couldn't use colors, else it would be more easy to read


Have fun, aXpo

thx u apreciate it so much,

i whrited this topic,

because many don't know much about this game
and most 'newbies' never read faq's or manuals

maybe this could help them (i hope)

btw, gabriet,

all things are good, but those are smalle details, like running out of ammo IS possible;

u can only pick up a gun once untill u die again,
most people drop it because they don't like that gun, and if u drop to much u aint have much left so

another reason i wrote that in the tips list;

6th  who would rush the zombos with a winchester?

Me. And succesfully. One shot, one kill happy.gif

And for the guide :

PLEASE PLEASE TYPE IT IN REAL ENGLISH (u = You...)
I know You're not good in english, but you can do that.
I Really don't like it, and It will make the reading easier and smoother, and add Capitals.If I had mod power I would do it for you but... we've got lazy mods :pppp
Btw you can use Colors
As for the Special weapons, Minigun needs a skill level of 4 I think, Flamthrower 6 or 7 and the gas can 10.
You can also add What the points do :
1 point in hp = +8hp.
1 point in Speed = +5% speed.
1 point In skill = +7% damage.



Oh and I have A good bind :

Bind n "say RTFM"

Enjoy. cool.gif

aXpos BrainBread Guide for Noobs
(Revised by Ortzinator)


___________________________________________________


What are skill points/levels?
Your level is the amount of skill point you have. These points can be used to upgrade your speed, health, or damage/skill.


Yay! I got a skill point! Now how do I upgrade a skill?

Easy. First, open your console and type: bind key "+mouse"
As example: bind u "+mouse"

Now I can use that key (u) to upgrade your skills. Just hold that key and click on whichever skill you want to improve.
(The red boxes on the bottom of the screen.)

An alternative is:
Options -> Keyboard -> something (You can figure it out)

Why can't I pick up guns?

- You can only hold 3 guns a time (1 handgun and 2 rifles or shotguns, you decide)
- To use powerful guns, such as the flamethrower, minigun, sniper, or gas tank, you need a sufficient skill level.
- As far as I know, the skill level required for each weapon differs.

Where can I get ammo?

Look for an ammo box, stand near it and hold down the "use" key. This will ressuply your ammo.

General tips:

- Never rush a group of zombies alone with a low damage gun. That's pretty much suicide.

- When in transformation mode: if you don't want to be zombie, there are 2 ways to prevent that (depends on map and players)
- Jump off a cliff, bridge or something that kills you automatically.
- Try to let a zombie kill you.

- When you have a gas tank, be sure you got a gun ready to shoot it.
(Some people run to that gas tank to steal it from you)

- When out of ammo with no guns ask for backup or run away to get a gun or reload.

- Aim for the head. This kills zombies quickest. When you see the huge spray of blood, that means you've blown their head off. wink.gif

- Don't stand still for a long time, if you're paying attention, zombies can sneak up on you.

- Complete objectives as quick as you can, after that you have enough time to kill as much as you want.

- Remember, player zombies are faster than regular zombies, so if player zombies hunt you, make sure you have somewhere to run.

- Player zombies go unnoticed a lot of the time, so keep an eye out.

________________________________________________________________

About Transforming Into Zombies


If you want to play as a zombie, just let zombies attack you (no player zombie's)
and you will transform. (You will see a message saying you're transforming)

When transformed, your guns disappear and you can only attack with your hands. You're much faster though.

Cool, I'm a zombie now, how do I get back human?

- At the top of the screen on the left there is message that says: "hunt for braaains" (or something like it)

You can kill: players (human) or marines
Notice you need to kill 2/3 marines or 1 player to spawn back as human,

After you killed the ones you chose for, a popup box appears at the top right saying: respawn as human
Click one it using your "mouse key" and when you die you respawn as human again

If all objectives are done, mostly the last thing you need to do is run to the escape zone. Remember when you entered that zone you CANNOT play as human anymore until next map. If you ran to it, you can either spectate or play as zombie (a popup box appears then in the top right corner saying: play as zombie)


Also, note that some servers kick you when you kill human players
Or people begin to flame, whine, blame at you for killing him.

IMO, killing human players as a zombie is part of the game

Does skill still increase damage? Just doesn't feel like it. The only noticable improvement I observe for upping skill is decreased crosshair recovery time. huh.gif
