Achievement Hunter: 7 Days of 7 Days to Die - First Day

It's 7 Days To Die, but wait! This is different than all those other 7 Days To Die videos. We're rolling out 7 consecutive days of episodes in the zombie wasteland. And yes, it's on the PC! What could be better, you ask? Well, the zombie spawn is on high, and our Achievement Hunters actually know what they're doing - sort of.

In today's episode: Jack teaches Gavin the basics, Jeremy and Michael fight their first horde, and Ryan has his survival skills challenged.

    I'm actually a little annoyed that they didn't even TRY to save Ryan, instead they just stood there being boring.
    Also Lil J actually trying to die is bullshit, just because you can respawn doesn't mean you should kill yourself just to get rid of something you don't want. Instead of getting around mechanics of the game, actually play the fucking thing. Triggered rant over.

    Michael is going to burn a hole in his stomach with all that aspirin.

      Not a doctor, but I second this; don't take regular-strength Aspirin daily. My mom just had bypass surgery (yes, she had a heart attack) and they prescribed her some daily Aspirin--325 mg, which is the regular Bayer dosage--but they also gave her a prescription of Pepcid (an antacid) so that she wouldn't develop stomach ulcers because of the Aspirin. You gotta be careful. 

      That said, daily Aspirin usage--baby Aspirin, though, which is only 80 mg--can reduce the risk of heart attacks IN THOSE AT RISK, and the regular dosage can (and did!) help during a heart attack when chewed up.

      While I'm on my soapbox, don't smoke! And if you are currently a smoker, quit; it will radically improve your heart and lung health, and you'll save ~$50 a week. My mom quit the day she had her heart attack, so it's almost never too late to quit.

      If Michael (or anyone!) has constant joint pain, he needs to see his GP or a specialist and get some kind of other anti-inflammatory that doesn't have so many adverse effects. And/or, he should adopt a lower-impact exercise regimen.

    Some more 7DtD tips for anyone who wants to pick the game up: 


    If you didn't find a knife, use a large bone to make a shiv for harvesting animals, you will get more gubs.

    If it is during the day, don't be afraid to use a club on zombies 1 on 1, it is pretty safe for the most part and you can conserve your arrows, not to mentions clubs do solid damage, especially when you bop'em on the head.

    In that bookstore where Ryan was complaining about not finding things, make sure to search both the top and bottom of the bookshelf, as they are separate entities.

      Word.


      Careful with the clubs, though.  Homeboy is making it sound easy, but you really need to get some footwork down before you go toe-to-toe with any zeds.  Clubs are slow, take a minute to get used to the wind-up.  With the stun and infection mechanics in mind, you really want to avoid taking any damage whatsoever.  

      I've never had to worry about conserving arrows, don't be afraid to use them.  Jack and Jeremy have the right idea.  Head shots usually knock them over, switch to a club and finish them off that way.  As long as you're not dumping all of your arrows on one enemy, you're probably not going to run out.

    This is probable my Favorite AH series.


    That being said I am actually a little pissed that Jack, Jeremy, Gavin, and Michael just let Ryan die. I mean really they could have tried to meet him halfway considering everyone else had an easy trip to the house compared top Ryan.

      It's a 50/50 on whether they sacrifice themselves trying to save each other, or leave each other to die.

      Aside, Ryan was the one with more experience, and a firearm, and was told before it got dark that he wouldn't make it there.

      It just shows that regardless of how many hours you have invested in every evolutionary state of this game across PC and XBOX,  you will still be f'ked and end up, as Michael would say, 'dead as dicks'.

    That hard cut from the lads dicking around in the house to Ryan blasting zombies with a gun struggling to survive was amazing.

    I came into this not expecting much. I liked the previous ones but I found myself betting bored cuz not much was happening, but part one was great. Its much more interesting watching people who can get stuff done and not just beat each other in the head and jump of buildings to stop infections. 


    Also I would love this to be a weakly series if not just for a while.

    Be a better idea to have one person make the high level tools and weapons. You will save on resources as well has higher level stuff. Having 4 people waste resources on the exact same things is a bad idea. One person who makes and levels them up will be much more beneficial. Don't scrap stuff for brass iron or lead. You get double if you smelt the actual stuff in the furnace.

    I wish that they would learn not to kill themselves.  They think it's the easy way out, but it's actually the worst option.  Wellness takes forever to get, especially if you're not purposefully getting it and the lower max health and max stamina just makes it easier to die and lose more wellness.


    Tip of the day: If you're ever caught outside at night in the game and have grain alcohol, chug that baby.  You'll get so much stamina regen that you'll be able to run away from zombies the entire night.

      extra tip of the day, as last resort, because the zombies can't dig down (they can attack hatches though) find some FLAT ground, dig 3 block down, get in, place a wood frame at the top a watch as they run in place. (unless a cop shows up then they will "shoot" down or pop. so not advised on horde night)

      *note the devs removed the zoms from digging down because players who play at bedrock found out the zoms were turning entire maps into swiss cheese and destroying everything. you can see evidence of this still in game when a zom attacks the side of mountains/rocks it tunnels. also griefers even on PVE servers will use 'herded' hords to carve out your base so the can break in past you land claim blocks fyi

    Aspirin is an NSAID. NSAIDs inhibit protein synthesis which in turn inhibits muscle growth. Taking an aspirin every day is bad enough considering the fact that you drink on a regular basis (you're going to irreparably damage your liver) but taking aspirin before you work out is sabotaging your potential for gains.

      So, not only does he have weak muscles... But he's actually hurting his muscle's more than the regular person on a daily basis...

      I mean, you can clearly see his body (specifically his arms) in live action stuff like Off Topic. He doesn't look like he has "weak" muscles. The point of what I said is that he would make faster gains if he didn't take anti-inflammatory pills every day, seeing as the rebuilding part that happens after you break your muscles down is an inflammation response.

    I remember the last time I tried making a randomly generated world, it never spawned any water. I walked for days without stopping. I ended up just playing in Navezgane so I didn't have to survive on pre-existing water bottles. (From what I understand, it was a common glitch when I first bought the game two years ago.)


    Anyway, I'm glad to see you guys playing even more 7 Days to Die! I've been hooked since your original attempt forever ago. I hope you consider making it a regular series!

    I would really love it if this became a long running series similar to GTA or Minecraft. 7 Days is such a good game that only gets better with the more time you put into it. My imagination just goes crazy at the thought of what each of them would become if given enough episodes.


    1. Jack would turn their little piece of shit house into some kind of mansion/fortress.

    2. Michael would be running around, blowing shit up at random with a rocket launcher.

    3. Gavin would be far away from any danger by providing support with a sniper Rifle.

    4. Jeremy would be scouting shit out with sawed off shotgun and machete

    5. Ryan would just be trying to keep everyone else's insanity pointed in a productive direction and trying to keep everything from being burnt to the ground...
