Visit a Watchtower to unlock vision in this sector.
InformationWatchtowers appear on the global map, and are used to unlock new areas of the map.
There is one Watchtowers in the unlocked area players start in at the beginning of the game. Repairing the Watchtower requires the Electric Generator and unlocks the Northern Region and Winter Zones. A chopper is needed to deliver the Generator to the watchtower.
There are also around 4 Oak Trees that will require a Iron Hatchet around the outskirts of the watchtower, along with a few Pine Trees.The center of the map contains the watchtower, and there is a fence surrounding it. There is a gate on the southern end. In order to break down the gate to get in, players need a Crowbar. Inside the structure, there are many zombies, including fast biters, floater bloaters, and a few toxic abominations. Once these zombies are killed, the player can put an Electric Generator at the foot of the tower.
Once the player puts an Electric Generator at the watchtower, more zombies will appear and attack the player. Once these zombies are killed, the player can interact with the computer next to the tower and then the new areas to the north of the watchtower will be unlocked.
