Hunting animals here for raw meat and animal hide is beneficial due to ease of seeing your prey. The draw back is Zombies that are burn victims can set you on fire as well as small piles of debris still smoldering. Something to keep an eye out for is the random flare ups of flames as animals cross smoldering piles of debris. As of A19, one should also be on the lookout for land mines that blend in with the ground.
Description[edit | edit source]
The Burnt Forest is also known as the "Dead Forest". Once, the Burnt Forest was like all the other Forests. It had plenty of wildlife and all the trees had beautiful green leaves. However, when the third world war started and the virus started to spread among humanity, everything went down and a wildfire destroyed this beautiful forest, along with everyone inside it. This Biome is now nothing but destroyed buildings and burnt trees. However, it has many new Points of Interest as of Alpha 13, improving its exploration value. Embers burn on the ground and will catch you on fire if you walk over them. Destroy these ember piles yields Wood and Lump of Coal for crafting and as a fuel source. There is very little wildlife here and very few buildings, making this a very poor spawn point.
Environment[edit | edit source]
The environment, when it rains, can quickly lower the players body heat. Take caution by carrying clothes. Or momentarily hopping over to a different biome to collect Plant Fibers. You can then craft clothes. It may take a while to warm up though.
The environment is very hot, particularly in the afternoon sun, although not as hot as the Desert. Alpha 13's temperature system can lead to the player overheating quickly. Ember Piles, Small Stones and Birds Nests litter the ground and are easy to spot due to the vast reaches of scorched earth. Birds Nests are a good source of Eggs and Feathers. To stay cool, make sure you are adequately hydrated. Clothes such as Cowboy Hats and Bandanas also have a cooling effect.
Points of interest[edit | edit source]
Most of the buildings in this Biome are partially destroyed and a player can find mostly burnt and destroyed Houses with normal loot inside them. There's also a small village (on the Navezgane Map) in the middle of the Biome with destroyed houses. This can be found by following the Apache St. On a Random Gen map, there aren't usually cities in these Biomes , but it is possible. New Burnt POI's were introduced to the RWG world, so now things blend together better.

Notes[edit | edit source]
- Players should use extra caution when within the Burnt Forest as there are rarely any intact buildings to reside in especially at night when zombies are more aggressive.
- Occasionally, a player can hear a sound of cracking branches in the background.
- It is possible, albeit unlikely, for Infected Police Officers to spawn in the Burnt Forest biome, this makes the biome a poor spawn and particularly unsuitable for new players.
