A lot of players might choose to grab their friends and pair up when playing games like The Cycle: Frontier. But what about those that, for any reason, choose to go solo? This guide seeks to give them some vital tips to remain alive.
Don’t Forget to get Solid Equipment
One main thing you definitely want to do is to not forget to get good equipment. Get the best armor, helmet and backpack you can. Be it by crafting or by buying from shops in the hub area. You definitely want the best protection and storage you can. Don’t forget to get some good guns, either. As a solo player, the only things you can rely on are your own gear and your skills.
Carry as Many Stims as You Can
Stims basically act as medkits in this game. While you might not want to carry an excessive amount due to loadout weight limits, you definitely want to have at least a handful of them. If you have obtained enough FP with Osiris, you can get a Strong Stim from their shop. This is better than regular stims, as it heals more.
It’s been said a lot before, but you really can’t go wrong with getting insurance for your loadout. For a fairly small cost, you’ll be mitigating the loss of any items upon death. The penalty for death is that you lose all of your items, which can be devastating. With insurance, you get back a fraction of their cost as K-Marks. Do not go without insurance, especially as a solo player.
You’ll want to upgrade your inventory no matter what in this game. But as a solo player, you’d do well to focus on upgrading your Safe Pockets. Safe Pockets have a very low weight limit at first, but it can be increased at your Quarters. While deployed, put any high value items in your Safe Pockets. This is because items in your safe pockets do not get lost upon your death. You might want to put costly things such as expensive ammo there at first. But you can also swap things out for high value items you grab on the field such as Dustblooms.
Pay Attention to your Surroundings
Sounds are vital for you to locate other players and mobs. For example, a player shooting their gun against mob would be easy to hear. This can help you know where to go, or which spots to avoid. Not just that, either. You want to keep your own sounds in mind here. Melee weapons will help you avoid causing unnecessary noise and alerting other players. Running is also loud, so keep that in mind. Basically, pay attention to your surroundings so you aren’t caught off guard by other players. Remember you’re a lone wolf, but other players might be paired up.
Be Careful When You Evac
When you’re finally done, you’ll want to call a ship for evac. However, this is obviously very noticeable to other players. Be very careful and check your surroundings when you try to get on the ship. Make sure there are no other players camping the area. Don’t let up your guard until you’ve successfully evacuated.

Terraria: How to Get “A Rare Realm” Achievement
The new Labor of Love Content from Terraria version 1.4.4 guarantees players new content to incorporate into their ever-changing world.
The latest update brings tons of things into the game and with it, a number of achievements to complete.
One of the content is called “A Rare Realm” achievement where you will have to create one of three known world seeds released in the latest update.
Unlike some of the achievements where you will have to walk a certain number of steps, dig a specific number of blocks, and the like, the achievement we will be tackling today can be obtained fairly early into your game.
In this guide, we will show you how to create one of the latest World seeds in Terraria 1.4.4 and nab the “A Rare Realm” achievement at the same time in Terraria 1.4.4.
Guide on How to Get A Rare Realm Achievement in Terraria
The achievement unlocks if you create a world that is unique in Terraria. These realms can be created after you select your character and create a specific realm with unique effects.
Some examples of these are the no traps seed, zenith seed, remix seed and so much more.
Start the game and select your character
To begin, launch your game from your desktop. This achievement can also be unlocked on the mobile version of Terraria on IOS and Android. Next, select your character and click play.
Create a New World
You will have to create a new world from scratch on the option of which world to play on. Select create a new world and fill out the world details.
Be mindful of the difficulty level of your character when creating a new world otherwise, you won’t be able to play in the world you have created.
In our case, our character difficulty is set to classic so we will be creating a world on the classic difficulty settings.
You can freely select the world size and the evil alignment. This won’t affect you getting the achievement in the end.
Next, select a world name and on the seed tab, type in “no traps”. With everything set, click the create button.
Wait for your world to be created
Depending on the world’s size, you will have to wait for the world to finish generating. A small world will take you about a minute or so whereas the larger worlds could take around 3 to 4 minutes.
The No Traps seed will let you generate a world with no traps in it so you can explore the world with no fear of booby traps in the areas.
Select and Play in Your Newly Created World
When the realm is fully generated select it from the list of worlds that you have created. Entering the world for the first time will grant you the “A Rare Realm” achievement. Now go explore your new “Trap Free” world with leisure.
