Gatherings & Competitions

Let's see...

- People like to talk in global chat about where they are, where they're going, who they're with, what they're doing, etc. This alone has led to ENDLESS entertainment playing as a bandit, and in extreme cases being accused of hacking because "there's no way you could have known!" Ranges from pure stupidity on their part in broadcasting their location to some really interesting detective work that you can do to track them.

- Glitches in some gameplay mechanics, namely zombies not spawning when you're in a vehicle and being able to see entities such as animals and zeds represented by transparent dots along the periphery of the screen, leads to highly efficient player hunting. You can drive up and down major roads and be alerted to the presence of other people by the appearance of zombies. Also handy for looting in peace.

- More PvP fun includes: camping inside major cities or other popular looting locations, acting as counter-bandit to the previous by following the complaints and gunshots, laying traps in/on vehicles because they are player MAGNETS, playing a proper bandit by putting in the effort to merely rob people rather than treat them as pinatas, or take it further and set up toll checkpoints to force people to pay tribute to pass/enter.

The mere fact that you have random people roaming around in an enormous survival sandbox leads to some of the most exciting and dynamic gameplay you'll ever experience. At least until you become jaded and shoot on sight, lol... Usually by then you've conquered the survival aspect and no longer fear the zombies, so it's mostly about PvP. But even then, the attachment you develop to your uber gear and current character (BECAUSE it's usually hard and takes a long time to build up), makes every encounter meaningful.
