Hello, I’m a new player who just bought the game during the steam sale. Until tonight, the game’s been pretty good fun, with challenging fights and reasonable enemy spawns. However, recently the enemies seem to have multiplied by a large margin.
About an hour before I reached the air base, I encountered my first tank, a military class, protected by ~3 hunters and began to make preparations for a big fight. During the fight, I noticed that there were many more hunters than I had seen before. By the time I killed the tank, I believe I had killed about 8 hunters along with a few dogs that had come running in.
I have read that tanks can call in reinforcements, but calling in 5 hunters seems a bit much imo, especially in the early-mid game. Still, I chalked it up to the game making a challenging fight and that perhaps the spawns were just kinda clustered around the area, and went on my way.
About an hour later, I got to the air base, saw 2 FNIX tanks, went “nope” and tried to make my way to the farmlands bunker. This is where I saw 3 FNIX hunters on my trail.
I thought that it’d be a relatively easy fight compared to the tank earlier, and began to target their guns to force them into melee. Then I saw another hunter. “Maybe he was just in the bushes,” I thought to myself. Then I saw another. And then another. At this point I started to shoot at them while running away, but it was too late. The horde was approaching and growing by the second. I didn’t get very far before getting overwhelmed by the machines.
I chose to respawn at the safehouse at the air base, where I took the picture below.
I’m pretty sure that the only way to take care of that many enemies, solo, would require me to be in the endgame. Honestly, idk what I’m hoping to achieve by posting this, I guess I just wanted to vent and/or get some advice or help with killing them.
If it makes any difference I’m a level 11, a solo player and the highest tier I’ve gotten to is three-star
tl;dr - I tried to leave the air base and 8 hunters jumped me, send help
