Name 3 Weapons that comes to your mind when you think of Survival Game in a Forest / Ruins setting in increasing order of their Danger. Magic weapons and Futuristic weapons are not allowed btw :)

I could think of.. let me see.. A Machette, A Pair of Boxer Gloves and a Shotgun in that order. Just want to know what everybody thinks of as a "Weak", "Ok-ish" and "Strong" Survival weapon.

You consider Boxing Gloves to be more dangerous than a Machete? :unsure:

I doubt you'll find many guns (or at least functional guns) in a wilderness survival setting. The best progression I can think of is Pocket Knife --> Machete / Makeshift Spear --> Maybe a rusty pistol with limited ammo that you find through an incredible stroke of luck. Other than that, I'm not sure what exactly to suggest here.

Blunt (bat/club/pipe) -> Sharp (knife/knife/rusty... Sharp thing) -> long and sharp (makeshift sword/spear/bow) -> ranged wpn -> gun/real sword/axe

Honestly, a sturdy and sharp stick that can be splintered into something sharp as a low grade weapon. Maybe chance of breaking but abundant and quick to make. Or not breakable but low damage with a safe range for easy one on one against melee attackers.

Then when you have some tools you could put sticks together to make simple weapons like crafting a sharp object or stone with a branch to make a sword for less range and higher damage

Then finish it off by making more modern weapons like guns a rare find with ammo being even rarer.

Just my opinion... maybe I was too stick themed but sticks should be abundant in a forest so that's what came to mind.

It's raining non stop since yesterday. The sound of the rain is so soothing.
I really miss the old style disney animated movies. I guess the last one was The Princess and the Frog from 2009. Now I am trying to collect every single one I can get on BD or DVD.
What I've seen from the MZ tiles looks pretty inconsistent, bleh. Every plant seems to be drawn in a different style.
Recently posted a demo of my game online. Now I have no idea what to do with myself o_O What is the reason for my existence now...
I'm feeling a lot better this week. Some of the rules in my country for isolation changed a little, so I was able to see friends in person again, which was a huge relief. Thanks everyone for giving me some sympathy last week when I was having a rough time!
