    They were left in intentionally to make the wilderness feel like there are more zombies out there then there are lol.

    I lost a couple spears already, we're going to have to add a glow shader or people will be crying a river. Mine were just Q3 with no mods, but still I'm out and have to find another one before I can melee again. Using up ammo in the meantime.

    I'm going to make a bunch of pipe bombs and start tossing them around a bit to see how they feel, but I won't be kicking ass until I get the contact grenades IMO. I bought the first rank of the sniper rifle perk so thats a bit better.
    Is the goal that all five builds should be pretty equal?

    If thatís the case, it doesnít sound like INT is in line with the other builds if it isnít viable until three weeks in. At least thatís what Iím understanding from your post. Hopefully that can be balanced better because I really want to try out that build first.

    Or add a red feather to the back so they are easier to spot ... for immersion. 😜

    Use whatever firearms you can until you get 6 ranks. You can use them right away, but the perk cost is high otherwise everyone will have a trusty sidekick junk turret. So this one you have to pay a lot to get started in. Guns are plenty decent without perks, quality adds damage and random stats are nice. So you don't need to perk guns to be successful, but it really pays off later game if you do.

    So use what you have, and start investing into INT and by the time you are INT 6 or 7 you'll start finding better turrets and whatnot. The stun baton you can start perking into with low intellect right away, and junk turrets aren't horrible without perks, but they get pretty beast maxed out.

    I honestly like Intelligence being not viable early, the average person will only need average things from it, but for those who invest get fairly powerful things. especially if you can't aim, just have game ai do it for you (junk turret). you can even place it at the entrance of a dungeon your crawling to watch your back while you clear it out, protecting you from roamer, and maybe an opposing player from sneaking up on you. So I like that you have to invest hard to get use out of it

    Also super corn. does that exist yet or is that still even a thing

    That clears it up a bit better. Is the max amount of turrets two?

    Thanks Madmole!

    Is there anyway to code the spear so it returns to your inventory after a short period of time like 30 seconds or so?

    Just ran into a Carl's corn yesterday. In A17, it still is. I finally got leveled up high enough to craft seeds and utilize it. It's a bit of an "odd" thing and doesn't really serve much purpose yet, but it was really cool to run into. I don't know what the end vision is though.
