Will To Live Online – Complete Guide – ft. Noe Sparks

New Player Tips

There are a lot of things new players in Will To Live Online should know. Here are some of the top tips.

The NV-1 will produce better loot from skinning fish than a hunters knife.

You will receive more XP at night than during the day. Also mobs will be slightly harder at night as well to compensate. Note: you wont notice it much though.

Campfires are a one time respawn.

You can send yourself items in the mail.

Use HP Rounds for PvE. Use AP Rounds for PvP. FMJ can be ignored unless your gun does not come with HP (like the SMG90). Then FMJ is acceptable.

You will drop unequipped pieces of equipment at a very low chance.

At night, turn your post processing gamma to 0% and turn on night vision. any other time turn PP Gamma to 50-100%(or whatever u prefer). Your flashlight is a “HEY I’M RIGHT HERE! FRICKING SHOOT ME!” signal.

When you reach the Depot for the first time. you might die for no reason after hearing a woosh noise. these are special webs. throw a nut into one with the N key to get rid of them. or just walk around. these are used mostly in the maze.

DO NOT EVER use the squirrel (unless leveling proficiency %).

For the Compress & Alcohol Deliveries quests just buy the alcohol from the barman and turn it back in. Don’t waste time looking for alcohol in the world.

Radiation will make your health drop and seem like you’re dying for no reason. Wear a Bandana (hit F2 to activate) at all times. For high radiation areas and gas anomalies you can wear a gas mask too fully negate the affects. Bandanas and Masks also allows you to carry radiated items.

Hold your breath with the alt key to walk through gas anomalies and to aim better.

You can place a stash down from your inventory. MAKE SURE TO HIDE IT!

Bring cider with you to stay at full stamina.

If a Small Symbiont jumps on your back and throwing your items on the ground. Pull out your knife, look up, and start slashing to kill it/get it off.

Late game you will be in the canyon. Traveling back to the faction towns stops happening to make profit as u can sell for good $ out there instead.

You can always toggle PvP off till level 15. For those times you run into the lowbie killers hanging around Korovie or Engineering Settlement.

If you don’t want to join a faction you can still make bank off sun spiders in the canyon. Just be sure to sell to the Food/Medic vender in the tunnels. Also dont let factions see you out there as a neutral. You will be shot and killed.

They are the only class who has a skill tree for crafting. Can use equipment like claymores and respawners. Can capture a canyon base. They also get increased explosion dmg, xp, healing and hp pool. Engineers also make the most out of their skill points and can get more out of their skills than any other class.

Common Skills:

+5 Inventory Slots

+15% Carry weight

+15% Melee Damage | +15% Melee Bleed Chance | +15% Melee Crit Chance

+25% Pistol Damage | + 15% Pistol Accuracy | +15% Pistol Crit Chance

All builds in this are focused on using Medium Armor sets. If for some reason you dont want to wear medium as a hunter or engineer you only need 5Str. Most extra stat points are put into Str for HP and Carry weight anyways though. In the end your build is up to you.

Character Parameters

What do your stats do for you?

STRENGTH — Carry Weight, Melee Damage, Max HP, Throw Distance

DEXTERITY — Run Speed, Reload Speed, Interact Speed

STAMINA — Stamina, Max HP, Regen Rates, Status Resist

ACCURACY — Tightens Shot Spread, Decreases Bullet Drift, Decreases Gun Sway

INTELLIGENCE — Increases Kill XP, Gun Prof% XP, Medic XP, Craft XP

FORTUNE — Lock Picking, Dead Drop Chance, Crit Chance, Loot Chance, Crit Resistance

Once level 40 you will have gained 7 points to allocate.Repair ExperienceLeveling up your Repair skill will make repair kits more useful for future uses.

keep in mind all numbers have a hidden decimal. so when you see .07. It could really be .075 and we wont ever know what that number really is.

Mining Proficiency.

So you want to be a Miner. Well I have some good news and bad news. Good news is, there is a easier way from what you probably know. Bad news, it still sucks.

A few things to take note:

Mining Prof% increases the max quantity of resources from each successful gather.
Intelligence doesn’t seem to help mining XP gain.
Mining XP only goes up when you loot a ore with your pick.
Fortune helps your quantity of drops by a slight margin.
Strength makes the ore take less hits to mine, making mining faster.

It should already be a given that Miner is the class to pick for this. After that you just gotta build up 10 str, 5 dex, and 6 fortune. Str is better for mining than fortune. Plus if you max fortune you cant use your endgame weapon. If your so hellbent on a low carry weight and max fortune only go to 9 fortune so you can atleast reach 7 str 5dex.

Now grab your pick, head into the mine, and find a cave in to start farming some mining XP off of them plain old rocks. Fastest way to some is the entrance south of Mine Town by the swamp. Once you drop down the ladder head to the right and a cave in should be right there. Alternatively you can level off of coal in the northern canyon tunnels at level 20+.

Most times its better to kill monsters for the following ores: Lead | Gold | Copper | Coal.

When mining its best to mine for: Silicon | Chrome | Nickle | Coal.

To get iron bars u can buy plates and melt them down or use key 14 at the mine for free sh2 plates to smelt.

To locate the proper ores you need in the Minaevskaya Mine it is best to check the mine ore map guide. There isn’t a better guide out there in terms of finding ore.

Weapon Proficiency

Weapon Proficiency helps increase the overall damage(low end, not the high end), crit chance, and accuracy of your preferred weapon depending on the specific guns proficiency along with that weapon classes overall weapon proficiency %. Some guns also get a faster reload animation at 55%.

So someone who has 100% shotgun proficiency will do more damage than someone with 100% on the spas but only 50% overall shotgun proficiency.

How do I level my weapons the fastest? Make sure every bullet you fire does as much damage as possible. If you fire a bullet that should do 1000dmg and reward 1% xp but only do 500dmg. You will only receive .5% weapon prof from that bullet. To speed things up even more boost INT as much as possible.

This means you must make sure whatever you want to level your weapon on has enough health to take the damage your bullets are going to do. The best monster in the game to farm for pure proficiency/speed for any gun would be the junk/stray boar.

Off Speccing

If you want to use the guns of another class you can. But you will only be able to reach 50% prof. Meaning you cant get a faster reload with a gun that isn’t meant for your class, and you can’t reach maximum damage with a weapon that isn’t meant for your class.


Crafting XP: Gained from crafting items in your inventory or at a station.

Places you may smelt ore at: Minaevskaya’s Mine | Zapadnaya’s Mine | North/South bases in Canyon.

Survival XP: Gained from using a campfire to craft.

Cooking your food: It’s always best to go far away from where people normally travel to keep thieves out of your campfire.

At the moment there is no special benefit to crafting/survival xp besides unlocking recipes at % milestones.

Making Your Chitin Armor

You will want this armor by level 20.

To start you will need to gather a few PDAs.

One from the Bandits SW of Korovie.

One from the Cave Spider Boss in the Spider caves.

Two from the Fire Spiders.

You will need to gather Spider Webs, Polymer, fire spider shells, fire spider biomaterial, and alkali from the vender at Zapadanya.

Its best to try and have this armor set done by level 20. This will be the best armor anyone can get unless you can purchase T1/2 Faction armor from a level 3 clan, or Join/get your own clan to level 3.

Person VS Person

End Game Is: PvP

The point of this game is to eventually pick a faction, and fight the other faction over outposts. Being on the winning side gives you various benefits and advantages over the losing side.

New Players & PvP

Some fresh players aren’t ready for pvp. Maybe you’re the unlucky fellow who ran into noob killer whos just going to camp you at a safe zone. To stop this you can toggle PvP on and off from the character overview window in your PDA.

You can only toggle pvp on/off up to level 15. After that you’re fair game.

Neutral Players & PvP

Ultimately you don’t have to pick a faction and you can stay neutral. This causes certain hardships but they can be overcome if you know how to make friends. Neutrals can even make just as much money if you take the extra time to sell to the right NPC.


After joining a faction you will gain 1 point for killing a player of the opposite faction within 5-7 levels. 2 points if they are a high enough level above you. Engineers get bonus points for capturing a base. You also will not gain a faction point for killing a player twice in a row.

Each time you rank up you will receive faction rewards in the mail. Engineers also get a reward for each time they capture a base.

We PvP to PvE. We PvE to PvP


Pros and Cons

Eventually you will do a quest where you need to bring NDP Batteries from the bunker back to solar city. After that if you talk to mikalych again he will ask you if you want to join the Confederation.(If you have also done all the other Pre-req quests) You can tell him no to stay neutral. and Then travel back to Black Sunset to join…Black Sunset.
If you ask people in game you will be given biased answers.

You will be lied to, and you need to THINK for yourself. There are pros and cons to both factions. Many people in game like to paint a picture of one side being better than the other. THEY ARE NOT! The difference between the two factions at the core are…


Must use 3 NPCs to sell items for max profit.
Food sold at town.
Does not sell 12ga magnum ammo or fmj xtra ammo types.
Players start in the confederate town.
Fast travel to Kuzmich and back to Noob Town
Fast travel mine town and back to noob town.
Closest to lizard boss.
Closest to Swamp and tunnels.
Has tan/green army colored armors.
Low level board quests.
Generally has the most players due to 1 spamming quest dialog.

Black Sunset

All items sold and purchased from one npc.
Closest to the bunker boss.
Closest to the Boar Boss.
Closest to the Flesheater boss.
Closest to the Spider Boss.
faster teleports to korovie and back.
Does not sell food but has deer spawns(best farmable meat ingame)plus food in the Bunker.
Sells most types of ammo besides what is only sold at korovie/tunnels/canyon.
Closer to better leveling areas.
Closer to roaming trader.
Has black armors.
High level board quests.

Both factions will pay you 84% at their main towns and 90% in canyon for your items. Most pros and cons mean nothing late game. Each side just travels slightly different routes. You just need to find the shortcuts for both sides. In the end its honestly what armor looks best to you.

Rejoining A Faction:

Take 500k to the Roaming Trader west of mine town by the green river on Black Sunset side if you left your faction and want to rejoin.

Air drops

Air drops are loot crates that can be found at the base of a beam of light reaching into the sky. (About 1000m rendering distance) Reach one in time to be rewarded.

The Airdrops can spawn around the main map and coast. Multiple Airdrops can spawn in different zones at the same time.

Loot crates last about 10 mins. When they spawn the beam of light will be a yellow and then start to change to red and eventually the light will go away. The beam of light disappearing indicates the crate is going to explode soon.

If your one of the lucky few who can reach an airdrop in time you can loot.

Assorted s1 ammo types, advanced med kits, stims, titanium powder, skinned guns, and if your really lucky you can get the new magnum .500 which can use the po-1 scope and is bairly short of the damage a l9 produces. (Oh boy is it a beast).

Character Leveling

How XP gain works

Experience Gain in Will to Live Online is all based around your HP vs the HP of the Monster your killing. So say there’s a monster who’s name is red to me and i’m way to low level but i have my friend tanking so i can kill said monster. Because my hp is lower than what im supposed to have when i kill that creature i wont get as much xp as i should for killing it, but only by a few hundred.

Eventualy you’ll catch up in level/hp and get the correct amount of xp. As you level you will gain more hp vs the monster your fighting and start to get less xp. As a lv 44 miner you can be hp build and have a monster be grey to you. Then respec to a fortune build and that same creature will turn yellow.

Level 1-10

There are a few ways you can go about leveling. If you have a friend you can just have them tank firespiders for you. Otherwise you can do one of the following.

First you can just focus on quests. This is what i recommend for new players. Plus you can get a Marauder-5m from quests to use at level 10(It’s better than the level 14 Marauder-5. Also if you give your low level characters your mains M5M the game will not give that character the quest to get a new one. So if you want more than one M5M don’t swap your gun between characters). You will have to go back and do all the quests needed to join a faction anyways. So this method will just save you time as a new player.

Another way to level in the beginning is running east of Noob Town and killing boars. There are a few different areas out there with different level boars the further out you go. Boars are nice for cooking some meat and hearts.

Once you have Gorka Armor you can try out some lizards. Gorka Armor has toxin resistance. At level 8+ Kuzmich also gives a repeatable quest you can farm for XP. Requiring you to kill lizards and making Awl Stimulants. Those stimulants can be sold back in Noob Town for a pretty penny. Better used than sold IMHO though. Also take note this is not a good way to make stimulants later in the gme. Kuzmich will give you a quest for a Pharmasist-k.(located in the quests section) That’s how you want to make stimulants later.

Level 10-20

Once you hit level 10 you should be able to start taking on some fire spiders or hornets. You should have some decent armor and either a Marauder-5m or some other gun you’ve decided to use for your class or what have you. At this point it is best to load up on a good bit of medkits, matches, and the rest ammo.

For Fire Spiders head of over to the Dead Forest(this place is filled with wood). The entrance will be located at I13-6. The Fire Spiders all hang around a black crater in the midle of the map. You must be careful and go in slow. Fire Spiders will easily overpower a lower level player. If Fire Spiders are to powerful its best to try Elder Hornets first.

For Elder Hornets you just need to get a gas mask and maybe a few antidotes just in case. sometimes they can poison you. Head on over to the bunker south of Black Sunset. Grab the safe zone so you don’t have a long run back if you die. You can run around and kill elder hornets as long as you need to untill you can handle Fire Spiders. If you run out of medkits, food, or even antirads. there are antirads just outside the entrance. There is also food, water, meds, and all sorts of ammo inside the bunker to help keep you going.

Another thing you could do while leveling 10-20 is farm Elder Cave Spiders in the Spider Cave, Dead Forest, or at the bottom of the mine. You will want to gather up as much polymer and spider webs as possible from them to craft your Chitin Armor set. The coal they drop is also a big plus.

If you want to maximize your achievements and XP gain. You can always join the faction you don’t want to be with. Complete their quests. Leave that faction, and join the other Faction to finish their quests. Joining each faction is free for the first time.

Level 20+

At this point you should be wearing your new boots and a set of Chitin Armor. Head on through to tunnels and over to the Canyon. There are around 8 spots to farm sun spiders. To fight Sun Spiders effectively you will need Large Medkits, Bandages, and Large Antidotes. Large Antidotes can only be purchased from the faction towns in the canyon.

These will be the best way to level, while also making alot of money. Sun spiders are also the fastest way to make money in the game at the moment.

Level 27+

At this point you can wear faction armor and if you want to solo some Matadors. They will hit hard. You will want to find some that spawn at level 1-4. Only pull one at a time and having a friend with you just incase the level 4s are to hard is always a good idea. This can be faster and also slower than sunspiders. It depends on your gear/class most.

Level 35+

You have your end game gun, your faction armor, and in just a few levels your T2 faction armor set. This is the time you should be pairing up with a friend to duo level 7+ Matadors. One located at F1, surrounded by sun spiders (for some added xp if your strong enough). The second Matador is located at B6-4(this matadors respawn timer was ruined bt the devs), with nothing nearby to agro while farming. With a solid duo each person should easily be getting 10k – 20k a kill. Plus the respawn of matadors is insanely fast.

If you are going to play the slot machines. I suggest only spending 20k-50k at a time. If you hit a high dollar amount walk away. If you win nothing within that amount walk away. This will keep you from losing all your money at once. This has also given me profit more often than not when playing the slot machines. But if you keep at it they will eat your money.

Maps & Locations


This is probably the most annoying part. I just have to put time aside to run around and confirm spawns. So please forgive me if im slow with this section. I’d rather take my time and not give incorrect info or give out of date info. If i miss anything feel free to enlighten me.

Artifact, Eclusion Zone, and Maze Locations:

Artifact List:

First thing you will need to do is get some Artifact Containers. They can be acquired from the Roaming Trader in the G7-3 coordinate. You can also grab a Dosimeter while you are there. They are pretty useless for experienced players though.

  • First thing you will need to do is get some Artifact Containers. They can be acquired from the Roaming Trader in the G7-3 coordinate. You can also grab a Dosimeter while you are there. They are pretty useless for experienced players though.

Artifacts are Sold or Used in Clan Quests

Roaming Trader at G7-3 is the only NPC who will buy Artifacts from you

Exclusion Zone:

Gather supplies before you head out. Nuts + Alot of meds + Cider + Food/Water + Nightvision/bandana + Gas mask or Antirads + A Medium Container + A bunch of Small Containers.

Be sure to mark every gavity anomaly. You cant see them but they will make a humming noise if ur about to step on one. You can also throw nuts into them to see where they are.

Nuts are also used for spiderwebs in the maze, aswell as distracting the listeners in the maze.

There are many many more possible locations for blue/red balls but this should get you going and ive run out of map markers.

  • Black Dot = Black Orb Artifact
  • Purple Dot = Blue/Red Orb Artifact
  • Pink Dot = Pink Orb Artifact
  • Red Dot = Rainbow Artifact
  • Yellow Dot = Sacrifice Artifact
  • Doorway = Entrance to Maze or Rainbow Artifact
  • Small/Medium/Large NDP Stones and Small NDP Crystals can be found by using the NDP Detector and Sapper Shovel.

Maze Map:

Here is a 100% accurate maze map. After watching people make Garbage and misleading Maps for the maze I have decided i will set everyone straight. There may be some more red/blue balls than indicated but they arent the main purpose of the maze. The crystals are.

The Electric anomalies and listeners are for you to figure out. They aren’t hard to figure out and the listeners move depending on where they were agroed to last. GL and HF everyone!

In all you should come out of the maze with 14 Medium Crystals and 2 Large Crystals every 24 hrs real time.

There are creatures in the maze called listeners. They will follow you as long as they hear your footsteps. They will react to nuts that you throw. So you are to use that to your advantage to get them out of your way. They are also easily outrun.


The Coast is the most recent map added into the game for players level 30+. You will need a group to kill most things in this area. Everything will also hit you pretty hard. You wont be soloing this place unless your a miner, hp merc, or hp engi, and hunters just have no place in the coast.

First thing to know about the Coast is you can reach it by going to the dead forest and following the wall to the east untill you find a cave. The back entrance to The Coast is Tihon (fisherman). He will take you close to the town in coast for 5k.

Once in The Coast you will want to go off into a house off to the left and look for a drawer with a note in it. Then you will want to go down the road a bit to a lumber mill. There will be a trailer that has another dresser with the map PDA inside. Open your inventory and install it to get the map for The Coast.

Flesh eater event gives some pretty good loot like NDP crystals.
Crab boss drops crab hearts and a pda. Extremely good for instant heal. 2khp / stam.
Bandits drop .308 M1 DPA.
The Heart artifact can be found in a cave at D1-3. You will need to bring a rainbow artifact and some nuts.

To bring up the shield for the coast you will need 4 NDP Batteries (the ones from the bunker) and a can of gas. You will then need to protect several generators from shocker symbionts for 20 minutes. You get no xp from each kill and the rewards from the event are pretty bad. A clan storage will cost 200k and a personal storage fully upgraded will cost 200k as well.

The stores prices are also increased. For example a 80k gun from canyon will cost 144k in the coast.

Once you get the shield up you can Get a bunch of new quests including the quest to acquire the chitin helmet.

Back 4 Blood sucks


  1. please help me
    i only use 4 rifle
    fox 100% Proficiency
    coyote 100% Proficiency
    mosin 100% Proficiency
    pioneer 49% Proficiency
    why all my average rifles Proficiency only 38.8%

    • because total proficiency doesnt only count the guns you have used, it counts all of the guns from that class. if you want to max it out to 100% you will need to use every rifle to 100% proficiency, including weapons you plan on never using again.

  2. Found out the hard way that Teleport E6/1 is BROKEN will NOT take you to D2/8, even killed all the damned
    lvl 3-5 hogs thinking that it only works when not having aggro. I was SOOO wrong and got even MORE pissed off when more than 5-7 seconds later another another half dozen hogs auto-spawned right on top of me only THIS time they were Level 7-15 and colored yellow and RED.

    What a bunch of bull**** the devs throw at you in this game!!!
