I've seen it mentioned on the forum that you can get the AI survivors to join you, and then command them, but I don't see how to do it. I've done that sort of stuff in the Arma campaigns, but the AI are always automatically part of your unit - you don't need to manually get them to join. Can anyone explain how to do it? At the moment the AI survivors just shoot as me if I get too close.
Also, what are the AI shooting at? They ignore zombies right? So are the shots actually aimed at anything?
If so, is the shooting just general AI versus AI, or is it specifically survivor versus bandit?
Lastly, does the game difficulty setting affect the AI difficulty?
wrong! with the latest updates from Dayz_SP survivors and bandits engage infecteds just like they suppose to do ,its the infected counter-attack which still need work on....so yes you actyally are watching survivors shoting infecteds, they do not have very good aim doe... its the infecteds who ignore them even when they kill one near another...but you can still spot bandits from far because of their shootings =D
And i have the idea htat survivors who spawn other than church will join you automatically if you get close to them.... hope its help and enjoy the new descovered features xD
As far as I know, some of the survivors you may discover are not friendly and will not join your group.I get near one at a hill, tried to talk, but she said "Fuck off" and shoot at me. So I had to kill her. This was quiet confusing first, because there are survivors (friendly and hostile), bandits (hostile), rifleman (always hostile?) and snipers (always hostile?). I don't know if it is a bug, but I like it, because you not know if they are friendly or hostile, like in multiplayer. It cost me about 2 hours playing until I met the first friendly survivors. So: There are Survivors that join your group when you nearby. If not, it's maybe a good idea to shoot at them.
