I thought you were going to say Metro. There's also a game called Desolate that just came out, but apparently it's really shitty.

Well I love the metro series but we're talking online games so didn't mention it.

Never heard of desolate, gonna check it out.

Hatchlings (naked with hatchet) are not really dangerous if you have guns/armor. The purpose of hatchet runs is mostly just rush the profitable loot spots and grab as much as you can in your container that you keep when you die, and then die. On the offchance you'll be able to kill a Scav and get a gun or another hatchling for dog tag, but that's it. It's zero risk but mediocre reward, often no reward and it's kinda boring. I wouldn't worry about it.

It's actually easy to hatchet a scav if you get the upper hand. Aim for the head and rotate around them lol easy kill. Can get you some easy weapons early on.

Any idea why I sometimes lose mags when reloading (drop on floor I guess), even though I have space in my Tactical Rig? Bug?

Probably input lag making the game think you double clicked R(if you do that it does a quick reload), there's plenty of issues with input lag in some places.
It might have something to do with the Ergonomics stat, but I am not sure about that.

I've seen it happen to some people with mags bugging out. As golem said however, there's quick reload which drops the mag too.

Yeah, I might've tapped R twice by accident or something.

There is a bug that makes your mags just disappear, but I've only had it happen once or twice in 100+ hours, so you've most likely just double tapped R.

What level are you Vibe? Unlocked the level 3 traders yet? That's when you really get access to good guns and mods.

Nah I didn't level up my traders at all apart from Peacekeeper level 2. Didn't play that much, need to complete quests to progress and level up (currently im level 12 or 13).

I did the first quest for Prapor, the one with scavs and shotguns. On second now, with the key and truck thing, watched a video, just gotta do it.
Medicine lady quest, still gotta find 3 more salewa kits.
Skier quest, didn't start yet, but I do have a Kiver helmet in stash, just need some luck to find fort armor.
Peacekeeper, gotta reach lvl 16 or 18 or something, money requirement is fulfilled.

I didn't bother even looking at quests until I was level 11 or so. Leveling has been somewhat slow as I did a lot of low budget runs, either pistol or just hatchet. Great for money, not good for XP. I do have a decent stash right now though, considering my level: 500k+ rubles, 6k$, some €, one AKM and one kitted out AK-74N in stash that I got from two geared guys I dropped in Factory.

But yeah, really gotta level up my traders now. Peacekeeper 2 is only smgs, I did a silenced MPX factory run, got blasted by the first guy in armor because he just ate up all my bullets. I didn't go for legs because my previous shooter instincts make my aim jump to head/body. Until I level up traders I guess I'll use up my stashed ARs and go for a few SKS runs. Didn't really like the AKS that much.

I don't think you even have access to the AP 9mm bullets yet, so yeah, SMGs are no good unless you get the drop on someone and have the presence of mind to aim for legs. The AP 9mm will go through a kiver and PACA, but will again be useless against Fort+Fast MT. Best to just stick with the rifles when you can. Especially since MPX costs almost as much as a M4.
