  • H1Z1 Survival Tips & Tricks

    Wanted to start a new thread for tips/ideas/tricks for staying alive.

    FOOD: Look for bushes with white flowers. You won't get an action popup for them, but they are blackberries. Run around mashing E and you'll start picking them up. Each harvest is good for 1% health and hydration.
    Diplomacy is the art of saying "good doggie" while looking for a bigger stick.

              When I got on TS with you the other day you mentioned about the rabbit traps. Do these trap no matter what or do they need to be in a wooded area where they are likely to spawn?

                  So it doesn't matter where you put them essentially? Stuff spawns INTO it

                        Dirty water can be changed into Blackberry Juice. Just get a bottle of Dirty Water and 5 berries and craft it. This is most likely a bug, but its still good to know.

                          Like mashing e when looking for blackberries, running through the small white saplings mashing e gives you sticks. Someone mentioned that the other night and I stopped using my hatchet to cut down trees to make logs to make planks to make sticks. Sticks are different than branches which I always seem to grab when running through blackberry bushes.
