Unturned is a game where you must survive in a world infected by a virus that turns people into zombies. You should gather resources, tools and weapons, improve your skills and build a base.
1. Gather some wood
First thing you have to do is to gather some wood to make a basic shelter. You can cut the tree by punching it. Later in the game you may find axes that will speed up the process of cutting trees and also you can use your experience points to upgrade your tree-cutting skill.
2. Find some scrap
You can use scrap to make metal items, you can dig it from the rocks with a pickaxe, but pickaxe is hard to find, so most likely you will use metal items you have found to turn them into scrap. You can do it in your crafting menu.
3. Build a basic shelter from the wood you got
You should have a place to stay when it is night and zombies roam around. Basic 1x1 building should do just fine.
4. Find some food
You can find food in crates - if you can find them. Sometimes you can find canned food in abandoned buildings.
5. Find some weapons
To kill zombies you should find some weapons. You can use melee weapons like trees or rocks, but guns are much better. You can find guns in abandoned buildings or in crates.
6. Find some clothes
You will need clothes to protect yourself from the cold. It is a bit better to have a lot of clothes, because they can wear out. You can find clothes in abandoned buildings or crates.
7. Find some medicine
If you get hurt by a zombie you will need medicine. You can find medicine in abandoned buildings or in crates.
8. Build a base
Now that you have all that you need, you can start transforming your shelter into an actual base. Get yourself some iron walls, lockers and steel doors. Make some planters to grow food in. Make some turrets. You could also craft a car for yourself. It’s all up to you now.
This is the easiest way to start playing Unturned. I hope this will help you to progress faster in this beautiful sandbox game.
