It's actually around here on the forums somewhere. When I first started getting comfortable with how the game worked back in 0.A, I set up a truck and started driving it as fast as I could get it to go. I forget the exact speed, but it was somewhere in the upper triple digits. I believe it is impossible to obtain high triple digit speeds now a days, but I could be wrong. Anyways, I hit a bush and the truck disintegrated around my character, leaving just the frame, seat, seatbelt, and controls sitting in an open field with truck parts scattered all over the place.
I had a great dream that I was a handsome skeleton in a tower.

During the Great Gearing Revamp last summer, vehicle speeds dropped to reasonable levels and you didn't see 500+ mph top speeds.

With the revert of the Revamp, speeds are back to being insane. I think my character's touring coupe (4x5 light frames and a V8 engine on a 1 ton curb weight) has a top speed of around 512 mph, and you can get even better power/weight ratios if you want. A v12 unicycle should be able to break the sound barrier, at least theoretically.

There are a couple times where I ended up in sticky situations because of quirky game physics or a series of unfortunate events. The best I can remember was during the early 0.C experimentals when I cleared the area surronding a lab with a laser rifle, which inadvertently attracted the attention of all the surronding overmap hordes who couldn't spawn due to me still being in the area. Of course I took a break and exited the game just then, which resulted in this mega horde pileup when I restarted the game later.

Also, not the very top of dangerous things I made my survivor do in the game, but there's always been a slight amount of tension whenever I use an RDX charge.

Like, I'd think of some crazy stunt, like drop an RDX charge next to a fungal bloom while driving a speeding car, and often for some reason my survivor only barely makes it out of the blast radius.

I remember when I shot a deer in the forest to eat, and while I retreated back into my LMOE shelter, a mega horde spawned on top of me overnight.

I went outside to see what was making a ruckus (z levels on, go figure.) and got hulk punched into a fire that an NPC made by careless use of a flamethrower.

     Get ready for this one is a long one!
     With high enough dodging skill, you won't need to worry much about getting hit by hulk fists. I'm level 10 in the skill right now and the game keeps saying that I can't earn any more xp by dodging hulk mega-punches
    Of course my level 10 skill is diminished from the stuff I'm wearing, but I'm still pretty good!
    In terms of dangerous situations, (I think I posted one before), I don't really run into 'dangerous' situations much lately. Once you get to the point where there is like a 10% chance (if even that) of actually getting hit in melee, armor that stops (seemingly) every hit, you stay inside towns instead of risking turrets and other crazy stuff elsewhere, acid zombies are off, you have potential meat-shield friends, it isn't usually too bad.
     Honestly, the reason I don't go into other places other than my town isn't because I'm a wimp, it's just that my town is HUGE! And getting to anywhere else will take annoyingly long, plus my computer can't handle speed moving in a direction. Even if it could my followers are usually slower than me.
     I suppose there is also the fact that I also basicly do less damage with a freaking sword that with my fists. I'm literally a bionic mutant that punches things to death simply for fun. Shocker hulk? *punches five or four times* New bionics? Yay!
     I have Muay Thai with 27 strength. melee damage without Mauy thai is 20.3, but that fighting type makes it so the higher the strength, the more the damage! And i have nail nuckles which add more damage than fists but allow Muay Thai. So I can deal like 30 damage and usually one shot dog types, among other things. I actually bumped up the resillience on monsters by like 20% also.
     It might not be the 'most' dangerous situation, but picking a fight with me would be a very bad idea... Well, bullets are potentially dangerous, but I have pretty good armor and 162 base health. now that I think about it, I'm kinda tempted to get shot simply to see how much 'damage' it does!
I was wondering why that zombie brute was getting bigger, then it hit me...
"Pfft, I have amazing armor; that shotgun wont kill me!" *Head gets blown off*
Game: Your Fedora is completely destroyed. Me: "I'm not going to kill you anymore, I'm going to TORTURE you!"

here is my story,
I am in going into a fairly sized town which had about 3 shocker brutes in the middle of the night. I finish looting a military store and got a wheel barrel with all my newly acquired loot. when I go outside I encounter a z-9 and a grabber. the grabber holds me while his z-9 friend is on top of me. thanks to my handgun I take them both out with only minor injury's. I thought I was good but out of the blue, a wild zombie brute appears! *cue pokemon fight music* I barely had any bullets so I decided to haul ass and get away with the wounds I already had. but I heard footsteps all over the going to be over any second. But then... there she was, a NPC from out of the blue. I thought all that was going to happen was that she would get swarmed while I get away. but when as I was about too pass she wacked me with her wrench, and pulled my gun from my hands. Woman was mugging me while zombies were about to slaughter us. so I ran north while she was chasing me. somehow the zombies don't follow but she then turns the other direction and runs off into the night. don't worry, while in the military place I found a scythe. long story short I lived, killed the NPC, and got my gun back.

(click to show/hide)

As easily I can make a rude comment, i'd rather just explain that my character was brand new (Literally day 1) on the "sheltered survivor" start. They spawn with a m1 garand or some similar rifle.

I've been playing the game since mid 0.A, which is roughly around 3-4 years ago. I have a decent amount of experience playing this game, (I have a newbie guide to prove it) and i've gotten to the end-game so many times i've lost count.

Sorry for sounding rude anyway, but i'm pretty happy that you're proud of your character.

PK's Rebalancing ants multiply like mad. One time I decided to go down into an ant nest. They surrounded me. Fire-breathing ants jacked my pain so high I couldn't move. I had Repair Nanobots turned on, and I'm fireproof, so I couldn't die from the fire. I burned through all 300,000 bionic power before I died.

Needless to say, I savescummed. That is some bullshit.

My one of my characters had that one bonic which prevented fire damage, forgot what it was called. Anyway, found a young ant queen on the side of a road, did know what it was so I tried to kill it. Needless to say I caught on fire and activated my bionic. Thought I was in the clear until it burned all my super rare Japanese clothing (role playing as a samurai, don't judge.) to nothing. I wasn't very happy when it did this.

I remember that I was just finishing up mashing some dead children in the school I just smashed my car through, completely wasted and hallucinating all sorts of crazy things when a gang of armed bandits just burst through the front doors and started shooting EVERYTHING. All I had on me was a machete and was wearing an undershirt with some jeans while these guys were packing automatic rifles and shotguns, with body armor! The only thing that saved me was the fact that my car was in between them and me, though the car didn't make it. Had to drag a broken arm and leg through what must have been at least 15 miles of thick wilderness to get back to my hideout.

Oh wait, we're talking about THE GAME!?
Well, I didn't run away as fast as I hoped from an RDX charge. All my limbs ended up in the red and my torso was at : from the explosion, and it didn't even kill the whole fungal tower I was targeting! Cataclysm can be so unrealistic at times.

That's probably what's going through that character's mind.
