Prepare for war
Preparation is key. Search for cooks in local settlements who’ll help you prepare tasty meals that provide buffs to your stats, giving the edge against large machines.
There are dozens of weapons to acquire across the Forbidden West, including Spears, Bows, Slings, Shredder Gauntlets, Spike Throwers and more. Each of these has rare and legendary variants to collect and multiple ammo types to craft. Collecting, modifying, and mastering them will not only make you stronger, but may also grant access to new areas.
Offense is only half the battle though: to really thrive, you’ll need a strong defense. Hunt down different armor sets across the world, and recolor and modify them to ensure that no matter what you’re up against, you’re always dressed to kill.
