On your journey to uncover the truth of what's going on with the island you crash-landed on, the critical point is preparation. Before rushing in to complete objectives, ensure you're well-stocked with supplies, such as food, medicine, and some weapons. You will encounter enemies much more challenging than you initially encountered when you arrived on the island. So remember to save your progress before attempting to complete the objectives.

Some objectives will only be possible if you have obtained some items first. For example, one of the pings leads you to a patch of dirt. To access the hatch below the ground, you will need the shovel to dig it up first. But most importantly, you should know where to find all keycards because you won't get far without them.
