Mission One - Securing the shelter Edit
After you wake up from the prologue, you will have a conversation with the first 6-8 members of "your" hideout, upon completion you will be asked to take out a weapon, which can be found in a bag in the shelter's basement. Pick up a weapon of your liking (Highest DPS is the wrench), and then go out. The first mission will introduce you to the world of undead, bringing you to a Commercial site. BUT- Before we go there, select your raid members, and go to the blue outline outside of the shelter, and travel there.Edit
You will now arrive at a street, with some stores ahead of you;
BEAR IN MIND THAT IF YOU RUN UP TO THE ZOMBIE QUICKLY, AND PRESS SPACE BAR, YOU WILL HAVE A FREE ATTACK WITHOUT SPOTCHANCE FROM THE ZOMBIE!!!
The street up to the store, provided you don't turn right immediately contains 1 zombie.
By now, you must have killed at least one zombie. Great. Go on in the store, and hover your mouse over everything that is loose and bolted tight, you never know. Be wary, in the main compartment of the store are 2 zombies, but you should be able to dispatch them fairly easily.
Pointer; There is a locked door, to a small tool-handout area. You can break it open by pressing "Space", and hitting the door various times. Be wary of the noise it creates. I've never had trouble, but you can -never- be more cautious in these situations. Loot the area, and you'll find a neat sledgehammer. This sledgehammer is one of the more powerful melee weapons you can find, and serves for a good majority of all zombies and most humans - for the entire game.
If you've looted the main compartment of the store, and the tool-handout section, you can now move to the back of the store, with the storage sheds. This area has 1 zombie.
If with any luck, you have picked up a majority of tools, and hopefully - a lockpick. Use the lockpick on the red, locked door.
Go outside, into the parkinglot. This area contains 1 zombie. Dispatch it at will, and loot the bag behind the last car in the lot.
Go back out the driveway, and you will come up to a diner. CAUTION: INFRONT OF THE DINER ARE THREE ZOMBIES. YOU CAN EASILY BE OVERRUN BY THIS NUMBER, AT THIS POINT IN TIME! If you are brave, dispatch them. If not, run to the marked exit zones, and return to the shelter. You can also enter through the back of the diner. But you'd best not get spotted by the zombies.
If you're brave, and you've dispatched them, this is completely optional;
You can enter the diner, but BE WARY, THERE IS A HUMAN SURVIVOR WITH A BASEBALL BAT INSIDE!
This baseball bat looter has often caused trouble for my own survivors, so dispatch him with great care.
After that, loot the pantry and shelves in the back of the store, and continue on your merry way back.
