No you can't. Some weapons droped by A.I can't be stored. In the early games you can just count with your pistol, melee attacks or weapons by enemies with can't be stored.
You need to advance to the next camp for buy weapons and those weapons yes you can store, but we're here talking about Copeland camp.
Sigh... again people keep telling this over, over and over again. I even surprised if someone really play the game or saw the story. You know the Deacon beat hordes before the initial plot don't you? He have being doing this for survive as much he can. Don't make much sense, aside from the 'bike' problem in the early of the game. As you can see, its easy beat hordes with a handgun.
Don't get me wrong, Days Gone is one of my favorite games this year, but some arguments really don't make much sense for someone like me with spend so much time in this game. If Copeland can't sell guys at least give you the option to store the weapons you get from the other bikers.
Btw, you reach the Hot Springs Camp more early than Lost Lake just by making the story mission.
Copeland's is not the only camp you have initial access to. Lets not forget that the prologue where Boozer gets his arm torched by the rippers takes place at Crazy Willie's in Belknap, which is basically Hot Springs territory.
Copeland's is the smallest camp in the game and basically is a tutorial device to teach the player the way camp economies work and to drive home the importance of your bike as a survival tool. It also matches the fiction that the camp with the biggest fixation on the right to bear arms, is the only one that doesn't sell them to anyone.
Bottom line though, the restriction is mainly to give incentive to the player to visit Tuck and co at the Hot Springs, which fleshes out the grim and hopeless nature of the world Deke and Boozer find themselves in at the start of the story.
I expect better to be honest. Anw, I try finish the fast I could because
The militia territory its a lag showcase party. Wish Bend adress that, but by the reddit post not anytime soon. You and your buddy are close to the end.
Funny fact: Most of those scenes are actually removed or adjust to fit the 'one ending' scenario. This game is suppose to have many endings, but was removed. As you can see, the militia arc its not the most solid part of the story.
Started playing recently and cleared my first horde today. Took my time. Picked out the stragglers first one by one. Then used Molotovs and fuel tanks while hiding in the bushes. There were some really tense moments. What an amazing experience it was.
The game looks downright gorgeous and has great atmosphere. Now the gameplay is growing on me too. One of the best game experiences in quite some time for me.
Played plenty of FPS's in Dreams with this. No idea why more shooters don't have gyro aiming, it's really precise, like mouse precise. it's just more limited in movement than a mouse you it's more for fine aiming than full control.
