Bear and Breakfast Cheats and Tips
Collect Tons Of Resources
Collect as many resources on the ground as possible because they refresh and respawn often. This will save players time down the line when unlocking buildings and making furniture because those require lots of basic resources. If players have a surplus of them on hand, they don’t have to go out searching every time they need to make something new.
Different places provide varying resources, like The A24 having metal and rock, Sawdust and Timber Crossing having wood, and Highlake having plants for food. All of the locations on the map should be visited often. That is easier to do by unlocking the Bus Stops for fast travel.
Utilize The Bear Stash
Any extra items can be put in the Bear Stash bin near the Pawn Voyage truck. It can hold any item type, from resources and ingredients to decorations and crafted items. This helps a lot with inventory management, especially because items placed in the Bear Stash can be accessed from any of the bins, meaning the items stay the same and transfer over no matter the location.
If a player’s inventory is full but they collect or craft something, the game will give them a pop-up pointing to the backpack at the bottom of their screen. This lets them reclaim some items that may have been lost, but only has a certain amount of slots.
Keep An Eye On The Mini-Map
All resources sparkle when on screen, but that can be easily missed or difficult to see. The mini-map is invaluable when it comes to finding those resources around the world. This is especially helpful for items like metal at the dump in The A24 where metal scraps can blend into the bigger trash piles. A great way to spend the night if players don’t want to sleep is by gathering resources, but it gets dark enough that the mini-map is the easiest way to find things.
The map not only shows what location items are at but what type of items they are. When hovered over on the map, items’ names will appear, like strawberries, but some will be given a generic name, such as various types of woods bundled in a group being called a wood pile. The map also has a key on the side to explain what each icon means.
Know What Items To Look For
Trash is one of the types of currency in the game. It’s used to purchase decor items from dumpsters. Unlike other resources, garbage doesn’t show up on the map when it’s ready to collect. Players can walk the path the humans normally do to find trash, but some of it can be difficult to spot, so keep an eye out for when the E button pops up.
When quests are available or completed, the game will use a yellow arrow to point the correct direction to go. However, if the player isn’t in the correct zone, such as being in Timber Crossing instead of Sawdust to discover a new area, the arrow will not show up until they are in the correct zone. The map shows players where exits to the area are, but not which area it leads to unless the sign by the exit in-game is checked.
