Initial level of equipment


how is the maximum initial level of the equipment you get calculated?
Something similar to the radio station level that determines the maximum starting level of a survivor or a mix of several factors(episode, current level of your survivors, ect.)?

Thanks in advance!

    It depends on the episode, and current level of your survivors.

    Thanks for the quick reply!

    Do episodes in hard/nightmare mode count also or just the most advanced epsode?
    Is episode or survivor level more important?
    Is there maybe even a formula to calculate the max start level of equipment?

    it is based on the recommended level of the scenario you are playing.
    the recommended level of exploration levels goes up to match your highest survivor level...

    EG: if you have a lvl 15 max survivor as your highest, the highest you will get is recommended level 15 for the highest exploration levels.

    story and challenge recommended levels are fixed and can go well beyond your current max level survivor.
