Where to find Axe/Hatchet or Pry Bar in Coastal Highway?

30 posts in this topic

I have been playing for about 10 hours the map Coastal Highway and i'm unable to find a Pry Bar to open locked cabinets or Axe/Hatchet to get wood. I also have found only about 2 kg of metal crap. Did you find these tools? Where? Many thanks in advance! Especially i'm running out of wood hurts me...

First of all, you don't need a hatchet at all! (v156)

A hatchet sometimes lies beside a corpse sitting in the attic. There are ca 3 houses of this type so you have a good chance that you find one.

Prybars can be found in the gas station. Tools can be found in some portable cabins and kitchens.

Thanks so far!

I had no pry bar at the gas station. Where else could it be?

I can't harvest wood with my bare hands (only getting tinder plug) - so why don't i need a hatchet?

I have also visited the houses with the sitting man on the attic, but so far no luck. The search will have to be continued...

Now i found the hatchet! At the waterfront cottages with the attic with no man sitting there, but at the place he would sit - there was it :) Don't know how i could overlook that the first time... Thank you Burning Bridges!

To the pry bar - in the gas station there are two locked cabinets - may be the pry bar are inside :lol:

You can harvest softwood and hardwood without a tool (ie. with your bare hands) :) It just takes longer and burns more calories. I do it when I have excess food and daylight and want to spare my hatchet some wear and tear.

I have now a hatchet and i cant harvest wood too. I only get tinder plug. I have tried 10 times with hand and 10 times with the hatchet out side the house (just outside the door) and 5 times in the forest always getting tinder plug. I have now around 100 tinder plug but no fire wood. What do i do wrong?

Look again (same type as before).

I don't know the other spawn points in Coastal Highway, but there are several in the Mystery Lake region.

Who can read is definitely in the advantage ;) Thanks again Burning Bridges. Now i can make fire :D

I think i have to visit Mystery lake as i cannot find the pry bar in the gas station, i searched it many times now and either i'm blind or there's just no pry bar - i search in the forest for houses i didn't visit yet too (when i find them)

;)

my general advice: don't dismiss information too quickly, use your lantern, look into corners, there is a lot of stuff that you miss.

You can either ask for tips where to look for the prybar or look for it yourself. I would suggest you do the latter. I think I found 7 or 8 prybars in Mystery Lake, though that was still with the 138 version.

Just to clarify: I didn't dismiss - as i said i went twice looking again because you said so :) But i just didn't find it. I did find some more metal crap that i left behind when i was visiting it first. And of course i have used the lantern to look into all the corners as the gas station is very dark too. I remember finding a lot of pry bars in mystery lake so that's for sure the main option, eventhough it means to me to move out of the current "save place" that i have created. But that's all about in this game, to explore and survive i guess. So i thank you again.

Ok, if you checked twice then it isn't there. I discover a lot of things that I had previously missed because they blend in very well with the background.

I wanted to suggest that you go to the Dam, but then thought it would be too spoilerish.

So you did it all by yourself. Did you find the rifle and ammo?

I've always found one in the Forestry Lookout so far (in fact the only place I found one in my last game).

Yes right i was in the dam. And yes there i found another rifle and a view bullets too. I would have had already one, but i had left it at my "save" house (i found it at the abandoned lookout on coastal). And also this one i have left it there to take home later. As i have enough food currently i try not to carry it with me and just avoid those wolves because i want to get as much useful stuff i can. So far i was always lucky as i mostly find them close to houses or hunting rabbits or deers. The only thing i'm currently worried that i only have one bandage and i just don't remember where i put the rest. Anyway i hope i will find some more in Mystery Lake.

You can harvest a bandage from cloth ;) It's better to be cold a little than bleed out.

You can harvest bandages (2) from cloth, and I think there is more than enough cloth around now.

Since I found a second rifle (mine was in the lookout tower) I deposit them in places where I usually hunt, so I don't need to carry them around. Saves 4 kilo of weight.

usually the spawn in the garage inside on a box between the garage door and the tire racks, if it is not there you best bet is to pay close attention in the bathrooms as you loot houses, they sometimes spawn behind the toilets on the floor

Thanks a lot to all for the hints! I'm currently making great progress on everything :D

I have enough bandages now, i'm still with the first bottle of antiseptics (i need to count how many litres i have in total back home) so i don't worry fighting some wolve with my knife in the hand. I currently have only used one bullet on a wolve and found 3 rifles.

Lucky way to get food: When i was walking to the trappers homestad a wolf was just hunting a deer and i wanted to go quickly inside the house to get the rifle for the wolve. When i was stepping outside the fluffy was gone. And i could take all meet of the deer for free. Thanks fluffy!

I was looking around at Trappers Homestad to find a place to use the trap for rabbits, but i couldn't find any rabbits around. I guess i have to go back to the Coastal Highway map soon to open up all (i think 3) locked lockers and to use this trap for the first time. I hope it works.

I found another hatchet visiting the gas station for the 6th time :)
