If you've already gone through the quick starting tips, it's worth checking the more extensive general tips for beginners section. Afterwards, read a detailed description of the winch, which is practically a mini-game. In the vehicles section you can find categories and a list of available trucks and other vehicles that can be used to travel around American and Russian landscapes. In the types of tasks chapter you will learn what missions await you on the map and how to prepare for them. In the FAQ section, we have provided detailed explanations and answers for the most common questions concerning SnowRunner.

SnowRunner: Quick Starting Tips

Youll pass this place quite often at the beginning of the game. Dont even try to go there in your first GMC MH9500 truck - a waste of time and your effort. - SnowRunner Guide
You'll pass this place quite often at the beginning of the game. Don't even try to go there in your first GMC MH9500 truck - a waste of time and your effort.
  1. Unlock the garage as soon as possible and start using the Fleetstar F2070A truck which can be found there.
  2. Fuel, repairs and towing cost nothing
  3. Use the time skip option on the map if you don't like driving at night
  4. Don't go off-road with a vehicle that doesn't have a 4-wheel drive or with a "Highway" type vehicle.
  5. Towing a vehicle with a load to the garage will make you lose that load
  6. Use the winch!
  7. If you don't have an automatic winch, don't let the vehicle roll over, especially with the cargo
  8. Although the game will let you into Alaska territory quite quickly, continue the game in Michigan region - driving on snowy roads is much harder
  9. In the early hours of the game you don't have to worry about fuel - it should always be enough for missions in the area
  10. Keep a close eye on the terrain in front of you. Sometimes mud or water can be avoided by driving near it
  11. When you get stuck in the mud and there is nothing to attach the winch in the area, then switch to a lower gear and try to drive out by moving forward, backward and turning the wheels.
  12. Sometimes it is easier to get out of the mud by starting out on a standard gear rather than a low gear.
  13. If you don't want to peek at the map from time to time, set navigation points before you embark on your journey
  14. The observation towers will tempt you to unlock them, but some of them are located around a very difficult terrain (like swamp). Getting there with the first unlocked vehicle is extremely difficult - leave it for later
