A simple to understand guide on progressing your skill in H1Z1!
Want to Progress Your Skills in H1Z1?
Here are some simple to understand tips on progressing your skill in H1Z1!
Go to points of interest (POI) where lots of players drop.
This tip is essential to progressing. This simply forces you to be in more player populated areas so that it will help you in high-stress combat situations and general combat.
Don't hide from your enemy!
Hiding from your enemy will simply give your opponent an opportunity to get closer to you and possible use close quarter weapons on you. If you need to heal, simply duck behind your car and use a first-aid or bandage then get back to fighting!
Aim to pop their helmet.
Why should you aim to pop their helmet off? Well, this basically gives you the advantage when in combat as your opponent is more vulnerable to a one-tap from your gun. Typically, you should try to pop the helmet off with the AR-15 but guns like the AK-47 work fine too.
Keep extra helmets.
Now, this is something I wish I knew when I first played H1Z1. It's so annoying having your helmet popped off then not have a spare one near. Make sure you have atleast 2 spare helmets in your inventory to keep with you in-case the one you have on is popped off.
Sort your inventory quickly!
Whether it be putting a helmet on, grabbing items or sorting your inventory to a recently killed opponent, YOU MUST BE QUICK! Spending to long in the open can leave you vulnerable to enemy fire.
Take your keys from the vehicle.
I didn't know this when first playing KOTK. To do this, simply press tab and on the right you should see the keys to the vehicle you're driving. However, this doesn't work with Quads. This will stop anyone from trying to steal your car while you're looting a place.
Aim for cars when dropping down.
This will save the time of running around a town trying to find a vehicle and getting stuck in the gas for the rest of the game. Typically, you want to aim for a police car or Offroader but any other you can see that's close, GO FOR IT.
Shred clothes you find, salvage helmets and grab tape!
ALWAYS keep tape and other crafting materials in your inventory as you'll be able to make bandages and even make shift armour. Make sure you have makeshift armour if you don't have a laminated vest.
Practice your combat and aiming skills in 'Combat Practice'.
This helped me a lot with my aim and keeping my cool in high stress combat. Just try improve your aim each time you play combat practice and you'll see yourself slowly start to progress!
