There's two major cities. They're relatively small compared to other games, compared to the little towns and villages in DayZ, they're large. Zombie 'packs' vary. As small as 4-5 to 10-20. They can be threat, especially with no gun, or a poor gun, plus the gunfire will attract more. Other players are the main threat after you become established.
Ok thanks. It really looks like an awesome mod. It's just a bad timing for me though, as my steam account is nearly bursting with new games. I wonder if it will come on sale during the summer sales.
Sometimes it just makes you angry and frustrated when you lose all your hard earned stuff to something you have no control over like a random sniper or a bug. Sometimes it's a lot of fun to mess around with a bunch of squadmates. Sometimes you're shaking from adrenaline trying to kill that one enemy player you just can't seem to spot, thinking he might spot you first. Sometimes you're bored senseless running over an hour in the forests without meeting anyone or anything just to reach some high profile location. Sometimes you're very excited to have killed a player from the anticipation of seeing what they were carrying.
The game provides a whole range of emotions, both positive and negative. It's definitely NOT a casual game for a quick moment of fun.

I've reached the perfect gear. There is no slot that could possibly be better.
Primary weapon: MK48 Mod 0
Sniper: AS50 TWS ( that's the heat-sight version that was removed from the spawns back in 1.5.x, a scarce few still exist in-game )
Misc: NVG, rangefinder, ghillie suit, Coyote backpack, all tools, antibiotics etc.
We also have three vehicles full of weapons and one for driving around. Plus a bike. There's not much left to do except kill and troll people. Got 23 murders. Just did a long trip to the northern no man's land, driving over all the tents I could find and destroying all vehicles. With the amount of duping going on right now, it's good to remove some stuff from the game every now and then.
I've been out of PC gaming for a while but a colleague of mine started playing recently.
As soon as I heard the premise I jumped on Ebay and bought all the components needed to run Arma 2 Combined ops and purchased it half price on steam.
I'm playing on a decent server at the moment but I'm quite solitary, I'd prefer to play with another person I could trust.
If you have another good server hit me up, beware I'll have to start afresh though.
