While the players will be able to obtain the winter jacket from the very first day, it is recommended that they collect other important items first.

  • Therefore, you will cross a lot of enemies when you are making your way to that location. 
  • Without proper equipment, you won’t be able to face cannibals and other enemies in case you have not collected weapons and armor. 
  • So before you go on and collect the winter jacket, it is important to get items that will help you in defense against the enemies.
