Builds

All First Days start out as either a Passive, Neutral, or Aggressive build. They have notably different starting survivors, available locations, Our Shelter layouts, and different events.

Aggressive

  • Aggressive builds start with a chair.
  • Starting locations usually have hostiles.
  • Starting survivors usually have medium sized inventory (10 - 12), with scavenge related traits.
  • A knife, Broken Pistol, or both can sometimes be found at Our Shelter in the starting stashes.
  • Roman is very common with this build.
  • Like all builds, a Simple Heater is also found in Our Shelter on cold day starts.

Tactics

Stealing and murder can offer this build an advantage.

Neutral

  • Neutral builds start with a chair.
  • Starting locations are a mix of hostile, possible trade, and quests.
  • Starting survivors usually contain a higher inventory survivor. (12 - 17)
  • Survivors are often slightly injured or sick.
  • Marko or Boris are common with this build.
  • Like all builds, a Simple Heater is also found in Our Shelter on cold day starts.

Tactics

The most universal build, a larger inventory allows for much more supplies to be collected. This build is capable of crafting and upgrading more in Our Shelter than other builds.

Passive

  • Passive builds start with 2 beds, a crude stove, an armchair.
  • Starting locations usually grant early access to possible trades.
  • Starting survivors usually have small inventory sizes (8-10).
  • Passive builds get additional supplies from friendly neighbours which the other 2 builds don't.
  • Survivors are usually healthy, with no sickness or injury.
  • Cveta and/or Anton are common with this build.
  • Like all builds, a Simple Heater is also found in Our Shelter on cold day starts.

Tactics

Cold First Day

Sometimes it can be the coldest weather when starting, this build starts with a bonus simple heater. Keeping survivors warm in the early days can prove challenging but it offers a different experience than other starts.

  • The game can also begin in less than optimal weather approaching cold days, but this build does not begin with a simple heater hence is not technically a cold First Day
