5. The Guide
First you want to find the Watchtower, you will need Iron Hatchet’s to take out the 4 Oak trees along the outskirts of the watchtower, and any of the pine trees. Once you’re inside the watchtower, there is a gate that requires a Crowbar to break in.
Once you’re inside you will have to deal with a lot of zombies, this ranges from fast biters, floaters, and toxic abominations. You will need to clear the area first before you proceed with making, and delivering the generator to the Watchtower.
If you don’t have it already, work on acquiring the Chopper. After you have the chopper, work on assembling all the parts for the Electric Generator. Walk the generator to the chopper, then ride to the watchtower and unload it on the Watchtower. A moment after you start the generator you will be swarmed by zombies so kill what you can, but you will likely need to kite them around the base. After that, your map shall expand and show you even more areas.
