Nuclear Day Survival: Tips from Experienced Players

1. Gather materials. All materials that you find at locations must be collected and taken to the shelter. First of all, these are food, water and medicine, then materials for crafting equipment and weapons. If your backpack is full, go to the shelter and put all your finds in the closet, and then go to the location again. Completely clear the location before you decide to go to the next area, as during the course of the story the location may be blocked and you will not be able to return there.

2. Prepare for the expedition. Various dangers will await you at the locations: traps, wild animals, armed deserters. Prepare in advance equipment and weapons that will allow you to protect the main character. If you have a firearm, do not forget to put ammunition in your backpack. Before traveling, get your vital signs back up and take medications with you to restore your health if you are injured.

3. Save often. The game does not provide for the resurrection of the hero, one life, which in case of serious injury simply ends. It is important to save in time so that if the hero dies, you can restore some progress. Save as often as possible and use all available cells. Saving will come in handy if at some point you decide to replay the task and change the decision you made to get a different result.

4. Bring your tools. While exploring locations, you will encounter obstacles that will not allow you to explore the premises or obtain valuable materials. In the following sections we will tell you what tools will be useful to you at each location. Prepare the required number of items on the workbench in advance and take them with you so as not to return to the location again, waste energy and not endanger the hero.

5. Study locations carefully. Materials can be hidden anywhere, so it is important to carefully examine all areas so as not to miss anything. Pay attention to locked or blocked doors, furnishings intended for storing things, and corpses of people. In addition to searching for materials when exploring locations, it is important to remember the location of key characters, since many tasks are related to fulfilling their requests.

Equipment allows you to increase physical and radiation protection, and weapons make it possible to defend yourself and inflict damage on opponents. The hero will also need special tools and special materials that cannot be found during research.

Nuclear Day Survival: Where to look for materials?

Materials are resources and items that can contribute to the survival of the main character in a post-apocalyptic world. Other survivors are scavenging for whatever they can find, so you’ll have to scramble to get food and materials to craft gear. We will give you some tips so that you can quickly get used to the world of Nuclear Day Survival.

Most locations do not provide for resource recovery; they can only be found once, so use materials wisely.

Use a large backpack. At the initial stage, Andrey’s equipment capacity is 12 items. This is not enough to quickly collect materials when exploring locations. You will need a larger, 20-position backpack. Carefully explore the Hospital location; you can pick up a large backpack from one of the dead.

Don’t walk past trash. Most of the buildings were destroyed during the bombing; those buildings that survived have damage and destruction inside the premises. Search piles of garbage, as they may contain construction materials: boards, metal, nails, etc. These items will be useful for upgrading your workbench and crafting tools.

Open cabinets and drawers. You can find most of the materials in cabinets, tables, on shelves and inside bedside tables. Pay attention to pieces of furniture in rooms, especially those on the left side of the room, as they are very easy to miss.

Examine the corpses. These guys were less lucky than the main character. Some of them died from illness, some were mauled by wild animals, and some were killed by soldiers. In any case, it is worth checking your pockets for useful resources. You can only search those corpses that are highlighted. Bring Andrei close to the corpse, click on the object and take away all the most valuable things.

Use the tools. While exploring locations, you will encounter the problem of accessing some of the premises; they may be blocked. To continue your travels, find materials and complete tasks, take with you and use the following tools:

Look for the keys. A room that is of particular importance to the mission and is part of the task can only be opened with the correct key. To get this key, solve a puzzle, help a character solve a problem, or search another room. Once received, the key will go into the backpack in the quest items section and will not take up space. Approach an enclosed area, click on the door, and the key will automatically be used.

Watch the advertisement. Visit the Donator Offers section to take advantage of the opportunity to receive free resources. Watch the commercial and get 2 bottles of water, 2 sausages, 1 stew, 6 wood and 1 blade. Daily receipt of these resources will ensure a stable state of the main character’s vital signs.

Check the box next to the exit from the shelter to see if it is replenished with advertising resources.

Nuclear Day Survival: How to take part in fist fights?

Take part in a fist fight. After completing a few missions in the Anthill, you will gain access to fist fights in the bar. This is a great way to get medicine and prepare for Andrei’s dangerous forays. So, a successful outcome of the battle in your favor will allow you to get 2 antiseptics and 1 first aid kit from Prokhor.

Gameplay. Go to the bar and talk to Prokhor. Confirm your readiness to participate in battles, after which one of the bar visitors will come out against you. At the top of the screen, 2 scales are displayed showing the health of the fighters. To win, reduce your enemy’s health to 0.

During the battle, your character’s vital signs are not consumed, but if you lose, you will lose some of your health.

How to fight? Use the joystick on the left side of the screen and the control panel on the right side to fight your opponent. Andrey can use 4 actions to perform a second strike, wait until the reload finishes and the action button is activated. To avoid taking damage from a kick, simply move away from your opponent in time. If necessary, use the pause button in the upper right corner to take a breath and assess the situation.

Possible actions of fighters:

Nuclear Day Survival: All about completing the story campaign

Chat with survivors. As you travel, you will meet other survivors with whom you can interact. Sometimes during communication you will be offered several answer options; choose the most appropriate one in your opinion. Surviving these difficult days is not enough, do not forget to remain human.

Complete tasks. Andrey is a reliable guy and is ready to help anyone who asks. Unfortunately, other characters will take advantage of this. But the more you help, the better they will treat you and at the right time they will help you with various tasks.

Sergey.Andrey’s classmate, whom you will meet while exploring the school. He will be wearing a gas mask, so Andrei will not immediately recognize him. Their further communication depends on the decisions made.

Study groups. All characters in the game can be divided into several groups. Most of them are friendly towards you, but one of them will become your main enemy. We are talking about deserters who are better armed than anyone else. They are difficult to resist, but if you gradually develop your equipment and create powerful weapons, you will have a chance.

Group of survivors.Basic information.
Deserters.At the time of the disaster, all officers from the military unit were called to the city. Junior officers and conscripts seized weapons and food supplies.

Timur’s group.Stalkers who live in the vicinity of the Anthill. They are well armed, but the group is small in number, so it cannot fully resist the deserters.
Residents of Anthill.After the disaster, residents of high-rise buildings decided to unite and organize a community. The rest of the survivors strive to get there and get help, since it is almost impossible to survive alone in the post-apocalypse.

Look for clues. While exploring locations, look for notes from victims, documents from employees who can reveal the mystery of the disaster. The found entry goes into the backpack, where you can read it. Study the found documents carefully, as after reading the note will disappear. Use the diary, in which Andrey enters all the information received, to fill in the gaps in the game plot.

Nuclear Day Survival: Tips for a successful start in the game

Find a way. The first mission will begin with Andrey leaving his usual habitat and going in search of a new refuge. The hero has not eaten for several days and is almost exhausted.

Save Andrey. While running away from danger, the main character falls into a trap and is seriously injured. The bleeding is a serious threat, go forward and search the doctor’s corpse next to the abandoned ambulance. Use the found bandage to restore health points and continue on your way until you find shelter.

Explore the store. There are not many supplies in the shelter and food is simply necessary for survival, so go to the first location, the Store, and try to find something. Here you have to solve a puzzle, after which an incomprehensible earthquake will begin. Run to the shelter, then return to the store and examine the woman’s corpse. Take the radio from her and then install it in the shelter, perhaps other survivors will contact you.

Nuclear Day Survival: How to complete the tasks of the residents of Anthill?

Complete additional tasks. After completing the main story, additional tasks will be available to you. There are a lot of people living in Anthill, talk to everyone, maybe one of them needs help, advice or just a friendly conversation. All received tasks are displayed in Andrey’s diary, where you can track them.

Moonshine task. Talk to Prokhor, he doesn’t like the fact that Sanych assembled a moonshine still, help him sort out this situation. Go to Sanych, try to convince him that drinking alcohol is harmful to his health. Then discuss the situation with Prokhor again. Choose one of the proposed options: insist and disassemble the moonshine still, or unite Prokhor and Sanych in the production of moonshine. Since Sanych is unlikely to stop drinking, we advise you to choose option 2 and inform Sanych about moving the moonshine still to the bar.

Task From the world by thread. Dmitry will ask you to find several caches of missing stalkers. They are hidden in the Anthill, Hospital and School. Look for caches one after another, then return to Dmitry and report the completion of the task. He will ask you to pick up another stalker’s cache, which is located at the car wash where the stalkers’ base is located.

Locations of caches:

Quest Behind the yellow jacket. In a conversation with Bella, you learn that one of her charges has disappeared. Help find traces of the missing girl or herself. The first clue is located in a house outside the Anthill - the girl went to the stalkers to find out about her toy, and promised to bring them a photo from the car next to the Anthill. Find a note in the gray car, you will find out that the girl was in grade 3B at a local school. Go to school, there are wild dogs there that can pose a danger to the girl. Unfortunately, you won’t have time to help the girl and will only find a torn yellow jacket. Go to Bella and tell her the sad news.

Assignment: Acquittal. Talk to Prokhor, he will tell you that he witnessed injustice towards the young stalker Artem; Dmitry’s people took him into custody, deciding that he was a deserter. There is no evidence, so Andrei decides to find out about the situation and do something. Talk to Sanych, he will tell you that he and Timur know Artyom well and he is definitely not a deserter. Dmitry is ready to listen to you only if you provide him with significant evidence.

Where can I find evidence? Go to an abandoned house in the dead zone, take the shoulder straps with the letter K and the lieutenant colonel’s diary from the desk drawer. Then go to the deserters’ base, carry out a cleanup and receive shoulder straps from the killed enemy. Talk to Sanych, he will tell you what the various symbols on the shoulder straps mean. Go to Dmitry and tell him about the investigation, he will agree with the conclusion about Artem’s innocence. Report to Prokhor that the task has been completed.

Quest Matters of the heart. Help Timur win Bella’s heart, he wants to arrange a date, but doesn’t know how best to do it. Talk to Prokhor, he will tell you what the girl likes and how you can impress her. Visit Irina and she will promise to give you a bar of chocolate in exchange for a book of fairy tales. You will also need colored paper to make origami flowers, since it is impossible to get real flowers in a post-apocalyptic environment. A book of fairy tales and a paper can be found in the principal’s office at the school.

Organize a date. Take the chocolate from Irina to Timur. Then ask Jack for help, he promises that the children of the marauders will be able to make a bouquet of paper flowers for Bella. Talk to Prokhor about organizing a date at a bar. Take the flowers from Jack, inform Timur about all the preparations and take the invitation to Bella. Return to base, get some sleep and go to Timur to find out how the date went.

Assignment Road to the doctor. Talk to Dmitry about Anthill’s needs and suggest a good doctor for the survivors. Go to the hospital and persuade Davydych to move to Anthill. However, without Irina, he does not agree to move. She promises to help you in exchange for a handbag, which is in the glove compartment of the blue Niva in the Anthill. Go to the Ant Hill dead zone, deal with wild dogs and search the car. Go to the hospital again and talk with Ira and Davydych, who will agree to go to the Anthill only if he is well escorted.

Organize an escort. Talk to Dmitry about the possibility of transporting Davydych to Anthill. Since he has no free people at his disposal, ask Timur for help. Here Sergei will help you if you saved him while exploring the School location. Together with the soldiers, go to the hospital and pick up Davydach. Get ready, deserters will be waiting for you on the 1st floor. Destroy the enemy, go to Yakov, and then talk to Dmitry to complete the task.
