Top6 Inventory Slot Choices // Favorite weapons so far?
« on: February 12, 2013, 10:41:52 PM »
Hey fellow survivors, what are you guys rolling out for your top inventory bar? And what are your favorite (or most effective) weapon choices as of now?

Left to right, mine is currently:

Compass (1 slot tool)
Rope (1 slot tool)
Semi-automatic rifle (2 slot weapon)
Police Flashlight (1 slot tool)
Ballpeen hammer (1 slot weapon)

And I've been really pleased with the semi-automatic rifle. I have an assault shotgun, assault rifle, and fire axe near the front of the bottom scroll bar, but I haven't really had much of a chance to test them out.

How about you guys?

I may be exempt from answering, but you what makes an excellent combo?  Riot shield + Machete.  Excellent killing power + Awesome defense.

As of right now --
Machete (1 Slot)
Sub Machine Gun (1 Slot)
Assault Rifle (2 Slots)
Sawn Off Shotgun (1 Slot)
Tool set (1 slot)

It's been treating me well -- having the sub / assault rifle helped me get the death dealer achievement. Definitely felt like a BAMF after that.

I'm rocking zombie heads with the following:

pocket knife
flashlight
machete
binoculars
claw hammer

Machete and claw hammer is a pretty good combo for the occasional deaders. I had a pair of bolt cutters in my top six, but I didn't realize you could have the riot shield up there. Now its up there!!

I have to say the auto-shotgun is one of my favorite weapons in the game, took down hordes down considerably well and was very good for 1 to 2 shot kills.

Also, a semi-auto pistol and a SMG filled with ammo in both hands are deadly against hordes.

I am head to toe armor (kevlar, helmet, boots, gloves, respirator) and I use almost exclusively two machetes.... Thus my tag haha.

I have to agree with MacheteMachete, I have had pretty good luck so far with dual machetes. I also have my trusted SMG and sawed off shotgun up there (awesome 1 slot guns!). Lastly, the police flashlight and crowbar. I didn't realize you could place the riot shield on one of your hands so I'll have to try that out.

Unfortunately, there seems to be a bug that is preventing me from using all of my weapons/tools slots. I am lucky if I can pack a rifle and two melee weapons.  Be that as it may, I just picked up a flack jacket so I have moved up my riot shield as an offensive weapon with with the machete. They ARE a fantastic combo.

Update on my unusable weapons slot. There was an invisible machete taking up the space. Lol. That issue was fixed. Now I can use all slots. Thanks!

Michael -

Can you tell me more about your problem?  We have addressed a lot of the inventory issues with the upcoming 1.1 update, I'd like to know what you mean when you say you can't use all your slots. 


Thanks,

My favorite ranged weapon... Would be the full auto shotgun.... Melee is Machete, and shield... Still I only use the Auto shotgun for groups of zed... As I don't want to waste my ammo xD

Hmm...I'm switching out from the assault rifle / assault shotgun combo over to the riot shield / machete. Gotta save rounds...if this doesn't work out, and I do, I'm totally blaming you guys. :P

After reading this topic, I decided to try out the riot shield. It is indeed helpful.

My current picks for "the top six":
Machete
Riot Shield
Crowbar
Police Flashlight
Hacksaw
Sawed-Off Shotgun

Duct Tape
Bolt Cutters
Assault Rifle
Machete
Sawed-Off Shotgun

Generally use the last two for my weapons, though I also have a heavy axe and a hunting bow for quiet hunting

Duct tape isn't important right now, but it will be. 


Crafting coming soon
