What sort of level do you realistically have to be to finish the hard distance?

I currently have 2 level 22 guys with tara in training. What sort of levels/characters/weapons should i have to have a shot at finishing the thing, or at least getting to level 16 of the thing?

    I’m just guessing here because im new to playing the distance but with enough survivors ( quantity , quality is negligible kinda) the thingy is doable. ..........Of course gear and badges are a plus

    My guildmate did it for the first time when he had lvl 21 survivors (with distance #3). I managed to beat the distance with lvl 24 survivors only (actually I had not tried to do that earlier).

    Normal Mode, yes.
    Hard Mode, not bloody likely.

    Which is, to be fair, a pretty big achievement. My lv21 survivors are relatively well geared but wouldn't get close to finishing Distance Hard... well, not without spending a LOT of gold. I'm just about to skip to lv23 which I reckon gives me a shot.

    I fully agree with those who say it's doable. Certainly not easy with 22's, but definitely doable. The advice from @Phalanx44 is spot on, and the videos mentioned by @bladgier and @Japes87, as well as the videos from @mimica, are absolutely invaluable. I went from getting my ass handed to me on the late maps every single time to beating it twice a week, every week, often quite easily. Granted, I have well-badged survivors, all L24, but I definitely believe I could do it with L22's and those videos. Those guys are absolute whizzes, and their videos show how the Distance is 100% about strategy, and not just brute force.

    Even after playing the distance and watching the announced video channels over and over again, my record so far was map 19. Cheap one call survivors to sacrify are a good way, but when I finished map 19 this one time I used around 15-20 one callers and lots of gas. It´s nearly impossible to make it with free gas this way, as you have to replay lots of higher levels over and over again.

    With level 22 I could beat Normal Mode Distance everytime due to advice in the forums. With level 23 survivors, I can beat Normal Mode with the same 3 survivors, (Maggie lead, Abe second, Shooter third), everytime with only minor damage at the end.

    At level 23 I can hardly get to the Legendary gear on Hard Mode.

    However more than just survivor level, it will be determined by survivor/hero rarity and traits. Gear traits and badges will make all the difference in the world.

    If you have question, doubts, or concerns, post up a question to the forums and also you might want to checkout @OneLessTitan's site https://twdnomansland.wordpress.com/the-distance/ for suggestions on each version of the distance.

    @TJS keeps a running thread on which version as well as what rewards are available. https://forums.nextgames.com/walkingdead/discussion/33229/the-distance-rewards-hard-normal-modes/

    Those, as well as taking your time going through, should see you beating Normal Mode any day now.

    Good luck, and remember what Daryl (and forum members) taught you.

    *edit to add
    And I just now realized you started by asking about Hard Mode in the subject! I totally missed that, so mark my comments as irrelevant. Sorry to waste bits and bytes on this one.

    @ShadowaceAz, my level 22 and below survivors can get to the 2nd Aaron tokens every week. I highly recommend that you have a look at the videos by @crambert_nec, they're so helpful in choosing your squad and tactics. With more level 22s and better gear I am confident I can get further. Also the line group distance bizonly is well worth joining, great for asking advice and awesome info in the notes.

    I'm currently doing normal with my level 20's (easy it should be called) when some tokens event finishes my goal is to see how far I can get in the hard distance on Tuesdays and try and better it each time! Looking forward to beating my current best of 16 (map set 2) regularly.

    @Danski_46 yep, Aaron is about as far as I get also. I stopped upgrading armor a couple levels back though to save XP while upgrading. Just reaching 23 and most of my armors are from my 19&20 levels. Trying to decide if I stick with this up to lvl 24 as the RSL on challenges won't be increasing with my levels anymore.

    Also, I have @JayZ and @crambert_nec both on my subscription/notify list, when I mentioned that I recently started watching videos, those are the two I'm starting to learn from.

    Thank you though, in case I hadn't, I would. 😝

    I took my a-team, which is Darrell, Rosita, and Tara all level 20 and I beat it on normal only losing Rosita in the 20th round as she was opening the gate . 1 different move and I would have beat it with no survivors lost. The hard I can only get to round 9. I'll make another run at the Hard once I'm at 21
