H1Z1 King of the Kill was the golden child of Steam Early Access before the Playerunknown's Battlegrounds rose to fame. Despite the latter stole the show, H1Z1 KOTK is one of the best games for FPS players who're looking for a fast-paced shooter with a competitive edge.
First of all, the game has a solid player base: With thousands of players around the world with different levels of skill are competing for the virtual title of King of the Kill H1Z1 offers them to be. Also, the developer team at Daybreak Game Company is still pouring updates that smoothen the gameplay and technical aspects of the game. And H1Z1 Skins are still selling like hot cakes.
So, if you want to be a part of the H1Z1 Steam community, it's reassuring to know that you're never
Last year, Daybreak asked veteran H1Z1 players to share some insights for King of the Kill newbies. The community responded, and developer team derived a “Top Tips for New H1Z1 King of the Kill Players” list to ease the learning curve for newcomers. We picked the most valuable tips from the community that are also affirmed by developers:
Control your nerves
Before becoming the King of the Kill, you need to become the king of your nerves. Many H1Z1 veterans said the same thing: It's just a game, don't panic over a firefight, and remember to have some fun while spraying bullets.
Get to know the H1Z1 map
From safe landing zones to looting spots, you should become familiar with the H1Z1 map. As one player cleverly pointed, the map is the only thing in the game that stays the same between rounds.
You’ll die. A lot. Get over with it
When a game is lost, it’s lost. Don’t carry this as a burden to the next round. Remember, there will always be the next round. Dying is also a part of the game, and there's no shame in it. So, don't become obsessed with kill counts, learn from your mistakes along the way and try to enjoy the thrill of the battlefield.
Don’t expect to become the King of the Kill in your first game
Online PvP shooters are usually designed as “easy to pick-up, hard to master” games, and H1Z1 King of the Kill is no exception. As many hardcore gamers agree, you need to pour tens of hours into the game to become an above-average player. From there, the rest is up to your skills with the combat mechanics and your control over your nerves (remember Tip #1?).
