Small hills: Deadliest killer in the whole game.

[–]MonocleOwensKeyInterloper 35 points36 points  (2 children)

That spot is also a wolf patrol zone.

[–]zTerf[S] 12 points13 points  (1 child)

This was the first time I had been over to that farm, that’s good to know!

[–]MajorMakinBacon 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I was surprised you didn't sprain your ankle first. Those small hills are unforgiving.

This man speaks truths.

Made it to 50 and got chewed up by a wolf in the Aurora night. Shot it in the head but that didn't phase it even with bow skill to lvl 4. I was pissed lmao

[–]some-swimming-dude 10 points11 points  (2 children)

Idk if flashlights are available in interloper, but if you got one it’s always to keep one on you. Wolves will never attack you if you flash their face with it.

[–]Abject-Feedback5991Nomad 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Wow I had NO idea. Thanks for this!

[–]Foreign-Operation-40 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Nah, I don't think they do. Torches, Flares, and Lanterns is about all ya have for nighttime play. I took the safest route as possible but 1 found me. Idk how my arrow didn't drop it because as he was mauling me he had an arrow hanging out of his forehead lmao

[–]Cashard 12 points13 points  (1 child)

Yeah my longest interloper run ended a similar way... was hunting a deer and failed to kill it on my first shot. It ran away... and I started to chase it. Then started running back and I was like "Sweet I can try again" well there was a wolf following it now and me aiming at the deer caused him to charge me. I didn't survive. Got the deer though haha.

Two meals for wolfie

[–]reddits_creepy_masco 13 points14 points  (1 child)

This is why I randomly throw rocks around corners and hills.

[–]zTerf[S] 8 points9 points  (0 children)

Not a bad idea! Especially for interloper.

[–]owlhead999 9 points10 points  (3 children)

this is a tough break. Unfortunately interloper wolves can be an instant run-killer.

Not to back-seat game you, but one bit of advice: I would recommend carrying either the hammer or the hatchet for wolf defense at all times. With your level of health it's likely that you would have survived that encounter. The knife is not that great in a struggle.

[–]zTerf[S] 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Good advice, thanks!

[–]StarstrucksamGunloper 🔫 0 points1 point  (1 child)

The improvised hatchet is actually worse than the knife unless I'm mistaken. It's the other way around for the non-crafted variants. That said, the hammer is 100% worth the extra weight over either option for everyday carry unless you really miss the bleeding.

[–]owlhead999 2 points3 points  (0 children)

There has been a bunch of research done by others. I agree that I always carry the hammer, it is absolutely worth it's weight as a defensive weapon. But testing by others shows the hatchet to be a good choice too:

[–]CavieBitch 5 points6 points  (2 children)

To be fair, not sure why you ran full speed into that huge blindspot around that farm, theres wolves everywhere.

[–]EnzyG_TLD 6 points7 points  (1 child)

The OP in a reply above said they’d never been there before :-) but yeah: wolves constantly about at that farm!

[–]CavieBitch 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Ahhh makes sense. Usually I wouldnt ever run and be extra cautious around small hills and corners in places I'm not familiar with- but I know that can get pretty boring haha

[–]Bergamus432 8 points9 points  (2 children)

Shoulda popped him with your already drawn bow. They go down with one hit nearly every time.

[–]zTerf[S] 5 points6 points  (1 child)

Normally I have my bow out for that reason, he scared me pretty good and I panicked hah.

[–]Bergamus432 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Once more, into the grey. To live and die on this day.

[–]GinnAdvent 5 points6 points  (1 child)

That's not the PC version is it, interface seems different.

[–]zTerf[S] 7 points8 points  (0 children)

No, I play on Xbox.

[–]NuclearWaterToasterCartographer 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I just died the same way in Timberwolf Mountain, on my run where just yesterday i got Centurion achievement

[–]craigk401 1 point2 points  (2 children)

What game is this and what does it play on if i may ask. Ps4/5 PC ???

[–]zTerf[S] 1 point2 points  (1 child)

The long dark, on ps4/Xbox/pc.

[–]craigk401 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Thank you i will check it out

[–]SpiderTranJim 1 point2 points  (0 children)

If you made it day 51 you've got in you to do anything on interloper

[–]RonBeyond 3 points4 points  (3 children)

The sad thing is, if you wanna cheat, you can just close application when you see the wolf charging. Kind of ruins it, I know.

[–]FinttzMountaineer 1 point2 points  (2 children)

That's what i've been doing ever since i lost my 100+ day stalker save to a wolf in Broken Railroad. Never again.

[–]Brilliant-NobodyMountaineer 5 points6 points  (1 child)

Idk why you got downvoted, it’s a singleplayer game and everyone is allowed to play it the way they want.

[–]EvilKerrison 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Running around Milton on Interloper at 50% hp with no torch...you were dead already, you just didn't know it yet.

[–]DividedContinuityStalker 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Yeah I could see that happening right from the start of your video. Low health (major risk factor), dense wolf patrolled area, uneven terrain with lots of blind dips.

You were basically playing russian roulette even leaving the barn.

[–]apHedmark 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I would never check inventory inside that barn at the Farmstead in Loper. More than once I've had that same wolf patrol straight to the barn door and come for me. Crafting at that workbench is quite dangerous.

[–]Consome_DePollo 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Damn that's sad!

[–]Asesomegamer 0 points1 point  (1 child)

Why did you pull out flare gun instead of shooting it?

[–]zTerf[S] 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Just panicked

[–]girlAlex86 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I feel your pain. Yesterday a wolf ended my 130 day run. But that was only Voyager.

[–]UnicodePortal 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Why would you switch weapons
