Surviving Tabula Rasa Boot Camp

Updated Tue, Apr 15, 2008 by Taea

Eyes forward, recruits, and listen up for your instructions on making it through boot camp in Richard Garriott’s Tabula Rasa. As the first place new players encounter when entering the game, Boot Camp functions as the Tabula Rasa tutorial. Ten Ton Hammer has the insider tips to make sure everyone survives their first steps into the world of Tabula Rasa.

Finding some sort of cover, such as sand bags or terrain features will decrease the amount of damage you take. Holding down your mouse button will continuously fire your weapon until you need to reload. Like to be up close and personal with the enemy? Get close and hit your F key to melee. Your pistol can do a fair amount of damage when used as a blunt object.

See part one of the Boot Camp guide here, then stop by the Tabula Rasa Community Forums for more game information.


Years have passed since the cancellation of Tabula Rasa, but some fans still want the game back.
