Description

"Visit a watchtower to unlock vision in this sector"

Information

Watchtowers appear on the Global Map, and are used to unlock new areas of the map.

Currently there are 4 watchtowers in the game (as of Beta v.1.17.7)

1st Watchtower- Northern Watchtower


1st Watchtower location

Level 15 required.
– In-game description

Unlocks the Northern Regions and Winter Zones.

Commonly referred to as the “Northern Watchtower”.

Located on the left side of the Global Map, above Crooked Creek Farm.

Note: Location available from level 15

Repairing the Watchtower requires an Electric Generator.

The watchtower is located at the center of the map, surrounded by a steel fence. The gate is found at the southern end (lower right).

  • A Crowbar is needed to open the gate.

Enemies:

Once the Electric Generator is placed at the foot of the watchtower a wave of zombies will appear and attack the player.

As of season 3 update, you no longer need to kill the second wave in order to activate the computer, just place the generator and exit the location.

  • Tip: If you do not kill the wave of zombies and return to the location, know that the wave of zombies does not disappear. only after they are killed the location will be permanently cleared.
  • Tip: You can step in with a machine gun, Gatling gun, or a handgun. Gatling gun is the easiest way to do this. Step in, shoot one or two of the zombies, and step back out. You have a good chance of defeating them slowly.

If you've previously died at the Watchtower, then died somewhere else, your body stays (Unsure if this is a glitch or intentional).

Tip: Iron Hatchet is required to cut down Oak Trees.
