Stock Up on Healing and Ammo Items
Be sure to carry around healing items and ammo with you at all times, and always be prepared to engage! You'll never know when a zombie or the Tyrant will attack.
Maximize Your Inventory Space
As a true survival horror game, inventory management is key! Make sure you have enough space for all the items you need for the situation, and ditch unneeded items using the item stash.
Have Extra Space for Key Items
Make sure you have enough space for key items you may find, as these are crucial to progress the story. Unload some items as necessary.
Experiment With Item Combinations
Try out different herb combinations and maximize their effects. This also conserves inventory space since combined items take up only a single inventory slot.
