With the release of Grounded on the 28th of September, it is important to go over some of the beginner tips of the game for new and returning players alike. Some of these may seem like common sense whilst others may be things you never knew about. So here are my top 5 beginner tips for grounded.
1. Beware of the Ladybugs
Whilst they seem harmless at the start of the game, punching or hitting the ladybugs is a surefire way to get your character killed, so my best advice is to not provoke them needlessly.
2. Analyze Everything you find
The field stations located around the map have a thing called “Resource Analyzers” in them, what these allow you to do is to scan items and receive recipes in return as well as “Brain Power”. Given that these resource analyzers recharge their uses within a few minutes it’s always a good idea to scan as many things as you possibly can to keep that analyzer going.
3. Bed Building Saves lives
Crafting beds in grounded is how you create your own spawn points (otherwise you spawn at the nearest field station), so if you feel that you are getting into a risky situation where you may not survive it may be a wise decision to place a bed down so if you happen to die you don’t spawn super far away making it easier to reclaim your possessions.
4. Utilize the Jerky Rack for Making Leather
One thing a lot of people don’t know is that if you possess berries and place the berry chunks on a jerky rack, you are able to get one leather per chunk, rather than the alternative of using the workbench and using 3 berry chunks for one leather. This will make collecting Berry Leather significantly easier.
5. Craft a Bow as soon as you can
This particular tip requires a small amount of fighting to acquire. However, crafting a bow early on means that you will be able to keep your distance when in combat with some of the stronger creatures in the game. So if you want the increased range and easier combat then the bow is the way to go.
