The scavs are the biggest threat now, on Customs there are the really high up snipers which if you are unlucky constantly pepper you from spawn and then other scavs which duck out and shoot you in the throat.
Back to the horrors of standard account stash space. J forever keep hold of a few guns at early levels (read: the two starter M4s, an ADAR, an AKM, a a Vepyr 136, an MP9, and UMP (knife trade) but I'm not dying enough to utilize them all / don't justify using them due to poor ammo. Armour seems scarce at the moment too, but I'm up to my neck in vests all holding either meds, hideout goods or some of the reasonable ammo I do have. Only level 8 so far and up to 1 mil; may grind a few more runs and buy a junkbox to free up some space.
As with previous wipes, my survivability tanks whenever I am in a group, need to find some more reliable people
Thanks for all the tips. If any other noobs want to group up and play / figure out the game together then give me a shout!
