There's a balance to be struck... Waiting too long will make later enemies too powerful to mooch loot off of, but rushing the teleporter will leave you without items to kill off the later obstacles.

Or you can just do what I do and focus on getting the glass and command artifacts, and then steamrolling the rest of the game with an unstoppable force of cheese.

My very first win was with the bandit. I don't even like the bandit.

The second form(first one only lobs a few Holy and Dark attacks before pissing off) of the final boss completely wrecked me within two turns. Wasn't a total wipe, but I had only the one reserve guy left standing, and he was pulled in in the middle of the enemy turn.

My highly-successful adventurer died a pitiful, unexpected death to a certain noisy bastard.

To answer your question: Yes. Kinda. It won't rescue you though. (Also, it requires you to do things you are unlikely to do if you don't know what is coming. Basically it is a patch for weird behavior caused by using foreknowledge to "game the system".)

I was hunting some elephants, and see one of a slightly different color. It tramples the second it sees me, killing me in less than a second. Not only that, but the game glitched out, putting my death marker on some random rock near The Summoning Place, about half the game map away. I use admin-mode to teleport to both where I died and where my death marker was, and never found any body.

Didn't die in the game, but died on the inside.

Had a miner by the name of Alwin Earthside join my mercenary company and fight under my banner for a while. After a trek in the mountains, which he enjoyed in particular, he was disemboweled by a Wiederganger in a fight we didn't need to do to complete our contract, but we were getting paid per head and gold keeps us going. We go back to the town of Hammererden and complete the contract for around 2100 gold and, while we have a replacement to fill us out to 12 men, it's always good to have reserves, so we went to recruiting some locals.

One of the locals is a miner who went into the trade at a young age in order to support a fatherless family. His name is Erling Earthside. Fortunately he's a Bleeder and Insecure with no noteworthy skills, so when I immediately fire him hopefully he heads back home to his family and dies in peace of old age.

I am sure the Wiedergänger would have killed him if you didn't get rid of him.

My Outpost got attacked by hungry bandits, which are so much weaker then my combat capable guys or my NPC guards its not even funny.
Yet one of those very same NPC guards decides to climb the central watchtower and man the harpoon gun there, that I've built to deal with more serious threats.

A few seconds later 7 of the 10 people in my combat squad are dead or dying (one, hilariously enough, missing all her blood without any visible damage to other body parts), felled by friendly fire.

Congratulations mister Human_Mercenary, your aim is impeccable. Just make sure you hit the correct targets next time.

Got shot multiple times by a... fish rifle? Made it to the final 3 and logged 3-4 kills.

Learned that PSI Flash β, a power that Ness has been sitting on for most of the adventure, has a chance to instant-kill along with its other effects.

Naturally, I did not learn this by simply reading the power description. Or by using it myself. Of course not, that'd be the easy way of learning something.

I set up on the fourth floor of a warehouse. Bridged the span to the apartments next door. Storage on my side, beds and kitchens on the other. I'm pretty much safe from zombies. If only I could find a sledgehammer and get rid of these pesky stairs and I'd be completely safe.

Decide I want to move. Pick up all of my meds and begin sliding down my sheet rope to the ground below, with the intention of putting them all in my car.

Holy shit, I'm sliding down this rope faster than *splat*

I guess a zombie destroyed my rope and I just leapt from the window without checking. I had so much food and antibiotics stored up.

First attempt at playing, I talk to the mission guy and get a Logistics mission: take a truck of supplies to a nearby town. Look around, all I see is a crate of supplies, no truck. I buy a truck, but can't figure out how to load the crate onto the truck. Ragequit and restart.

Second attempt, ask for a Logistics mission, get told to talk to some random guy in some random town for something to do. I get to the guy, but the fact that I come out of the truck with my assault rifle in plain view causes all the civvies to go bugfuck and I see a notice that I'm wanted by NATO. New guy tells me to go steal or destroy a supply truck a few towns over. I get to about a kilometer from the target when I flip my truck, forcing me to walk. A minute later I hear shots fired at me. I turn toward where I'm being shot from and see nothing but a solid wall of tracers.

Third attempt, another Logistics mission, again take truck of supplies to town. No truck again, just crate. This time I figured out how to load them onto the truck(gotta back right up to it apparently). Problem, I bought a military truck, so no undercover mode. I go cross-country to avoid checkpoints, but I must have run across a patrol. I believe I only got hit once, but that one bullet that hit me from behind punched me down through the bottom of the truck onto the ground.


Fourth attempt, screw it, give me an Assassination mission. It's the middle of the night. Target location is about a kilometer away from HQ. Before I head out, I dick around a bit at HQ and learn how to purchase a squad of soldiers, a truck for them, and even figured out ordering them around. I can't figure out how to get them into my personal squad, I can only give them squad waypoints which they follow, so that works.

I get to the target location, it's a basketball field. Nobody's around except civvies(Assassination objective markers are supposed to be general locations), but then I see NATO troops in a nearby building. Ordering my squad to drive forward and engage, I flank them. It being pitch-dark, I had to use their own flashlights to spot them, and if it wasn't for my guys laying suppression fire, they'd have killed me for sure. I give CPR to some of the wounded NATO soldiers, tell them to piss off(which supposedly lowers NATO aggression), but I don't find the traitor I'm supposed to kill. I did find a guy wearing Altis flags(the same flag over our HQ) rather than NATO, and assume he's the traitor, but a few bullets in his head only increases NATO ire. Can't find any target, cue ragequit.
