How Do I Kill Mutants?[edit | edit source]

First of all, try not to panic! Mutants have much higher health than cannibals, they also hurt you A LOT more. They take a lot more damage before they go down though they will eventually die. Using a crafted bow or a modern bow is one of the easiest ways to kill them as you can keep your distance. Fire is an effective way also, use Molotovs or Fire Arrows. Mutants won't run away from bombs, so they can be a good option also. Traps are also a good way. Practice and you may find a way that suits you best.

Are the packs of wandering natives that circle the plane ridiculously OP or is my game just derping? Also, why are so many near the starting zone?[edit | edit source]

Yes, they are OP, because the devs made them like that. They are supposed to be strong to put a sense of fear into the players to make them choose how they survive on the island. Most of the cannibals wandering around are just scouting parties. The Plane did make a lot of noise crashing down so it makes sense that they come to investigate.

How can I fight the cannibals effectively?[edit | edit source]

Fire and traps are pretty effective ways in dealing with the cannibals.
