The first time I died in SCUM, I was exploring a military base for supplies. After scrounging a backpack and some high quality gear, I stepped outside and right into the path of a giant goddamn robot. It shot me, and I fled into the forest. Unsure what to do, I sat by a river until I died.
The second time I died, I ended being chased by a wild boar with a pickaxe stuck in its nose. Because sure, why not?
