Choosing the right place to build a base can be very important for survival in the wild and defense against enemies. On the following page you can find tips on what to look for when deciding on the location of a shelter.
- Access to fresh water
- Flat land near the forest
- Natural barriers
- The proximity of game
- Cave interiors
- Walking distance from cannibal camps
Access to fresh water
The first criterion to consider when building a base is the immediate vicinity of a fresh water reservoir. By building a shelter on a river or lake, you gain instant access to fish, which you can treat as basic food. The ability to quickly quench thirst and fill the flask is also an invaluable advantage.
Flat land near the forest
If you plan to create an extensive base, it is important to choose a place with as much flat terrain as possible. Building structures on slopes and too sloping hills is difficult and troublesome.
Constructions that need logs require you to cut down a lot of trees. It is worth making sure that there is a dense forest near the base. Thanks to this, you can save time on transporting materials necessary for construction.
It is worth using the terrain as a natural barrier against enemy attacks. Opponents cannot climb cliffs or swim, so the base near a deep water reservoir allows you to quickly escape to a safe place.
The proximity of game
If you want to build a base away from water reservoirs, it is worth finding a place where rabbits, roe deer and elk are numerous. This is going to give you constant access to food. We have marked the best hunting grounds on our gamepressure.com map on the Interactive Map page.
Empty caves in various parts of the game world provide good protection against enemies. Enemies cannot squeeze through the entrance to the caverns, which guarantees your safety. On the other hand, you are not able to build elements that require logs in these places and creating lighting requires some work.
Walking distance from cannibal camps
Before choosing a location for the base, it is worth looking around and checking if there are any cannibal camps nearby. If the shelter is too close to the enemy's base, their attacks will be more frequent and more severe, especially if several such camps are within close proximity to each other.
