Today we’re going into this The Long Dark Interloper Guide, which is made to show how to improve your chances of surviving while playing on the Interloper mode which was released during the Vigilant Trespass update. If you’re new to The Long Dark, I would highly recommend playing on the other difficulty modes before trying the Interloper difficulty, as it’s very important to have a working knowledge of the game and the maps before attempting the hardest difficulty. I try to go over some of the tips and tricks that have helped me survive during my Interloper playthrough, and playing Interloper I’ve quickly realized that you cannot play Interloper like you would play a casual sandbox, or even Stalker. There are certain things you need to do, at least until you can become self sufficient by obtaining improvised tools so that you can continue to get meat, gut, and hide.

We’re going to be talking about food conservation, avoiding danger, temperature management, time management, possibly goal priority, scavenging and more.

This guide was meant to be quick and succinct, but if there are any additional guides you would like, or any points in the guide you would like me to expand upon, feel free to let me know in the comments section. Thanks!
