Dinosaurs and survival. They go together like peanut butter and jam. They should never go together - dinosaurs are notoriously bad at survival, and anyone who disagrees is a fool. Also, dinosaur movies make me think humans wouldn't be very good at survival either.

But despite that we have Durango, a mobile game that pushes you to become a harsh survivalist in a Jurassic world. Not like the movie though.

In this guide we're gonna walk you through the essential loot you need. Without the right gear, weapons and tools, you won't get very far. If you're a new player, you'll be able to get the loot you need fast with these tips.

The loot you need


You need certain tools or pieces of loot for pretty much everything. You will already know that the basic gameplay will involve a lot of mining for resources, and those factor into absolutely everything.

You'll use the resources you mine to craft new items, and you'll continually learn to make even newer items from the skill tree menu.

But that's not all, those resources might even resolve quests in and of themselves.

But what you can craft is most important. The things you craft will give you access to new ways to play, and new mechanics to interact with.

For example, you can farm on land in your domain, once you have the skill to farm. But before even that, you'll need to craft a hoe from the resources you've collected.

So, first thing you should do? Collect plenty of resources, spend your skill points on new things to craft, and then craft everything you possibly can.

But lucky for you, crafting isn't the only way to acquire items in this game. It is, after all, a multiplayer experience, and you might be able to find help from others in game, or from your clan.
