Since I have to make a post about being pruned, and am new to the RP thing, I do have a suggestion. I have been watching a lot of gameplay by a guy on YouTube and when he comes across someone he usually get cover, points his weapon, explains his situation such as "I have a gun pointed at your head kneel down and drop your weapon and then we can talk. If you comply I will not hurt you." usually the other player compies (although not always) and a small conversation ensues. Sometimes they cross load loot and sometimes he gives the player something that he has 2 of or gets info on bandits that are shooting fresh spawns and taking the bandits out. I guess its all about what both players are looking for in the game but if you decide that you want to be in control of the situation, that is a good way to start. No one likes to die after they are all kitted up.
