Uniqueness is defined by the difference in damage that they can do, or some special feature or attack. Tough Zombies have more health, resistance and damage, making them harder to be dealt with.
Crawler Zombie is one of the earliest special infected encountered within the game, and unlike most zombies, it'll always crawl along the ground, and it may use this to its advantage to ambush unsuspecting players or to reach low gaps. Demolished is a physically resistant zombie that can easily break spikes and hit hard.
It requires lots of strength to kill, and it is not affected by sunlight because this zombie will always spawn as feral and will run, regardless of the world's settings. When killed they give the highest amount of experience points and carry the best loot of all zombies.
Infected Police Officer has a high amount of hit points, similar to the Bloated Walker, but also possesses a deadly ranged attack. Campfires and forges may raise it, as can cut trees, mining, using certain weapons, explosives, the Augur or even crafting.
Spider Zombies are also capable of spitting “webs” at the player, dealing low damage if hit. Killing and harvesting them is one of the ways to get rotting flesh, important for farming.
They typically spawn in packs, and can thus maul a survivor into shreds. Sometimes are wolves Zombie Vultures may fly around and attack the player from above, and It will attempt to make range after it successfully attacked the player to avoid retaliation. They spawn in every biome and can be avoided by hiding in a shelter, though their ability to break blocks(since alpha 19 of the game) might leave you a limited amount of time until they break a hole in your roof.
Zombies move slowly during the day and will not chase after the player if they stay far enough away. Zombies will mostly stay idle around their position but when they spot a player they will move in a straight line towards them, destroying any blocks in their way.
This behavior can be changed while creating and entering a world with the setting “Zombie day speed”. They will attempt to detect survivors at night, using proximity, sight, and light.
If hit in the torso, the zombie may be stunned, causing them to fall to the ground. Except the Infected Police Officer, all zombies have a single style of attack, which is a melee swipe, slash or punch.
Dismembering the head will kill any zombie instantly, so using a weapon under the attribute the player focuses on is advisable. However, against a horde, melee combat can lead the player to be surrounded by zombies which is extremely dangerous, especially at night.
Against hordes or when safety is of the ultimate priority, guns are the safest in this regard, but they heavily rely on ammunition. The Primitive Bow is an excellent choice for fighting zombies as both it and Stone Arrows are easy and inexpensive to craft, and the bow makes little to no noise, thus attracting the attention from nearby zombies.
You will make less noise while moving and searching in stealth mode, but movement while crouched is slower than while walking. Repairs are a normal duty; fixing blocks, replacing traps, etc.
Other forms of traps include land mines or pitfalls, but require extensive pre-building or restocking. This is very useful for long pits to harm zombies with a clever death trap.
This is especially true if the player wishes to fortify their base, but does not want to break down their original layer of walls. The Claw Hammer, Nail gun and Stone Axe can all repair broken or damaged blocks.
This is most commonly achieved by having a 'balcony' or roof access, to make it possible for a player to shoot at zombies while remaining more or less safe. Combined with spike traps, these are very effective defenses, though hinder attempts to farm food or any escape routes.
A base should have an easy access escape route that zombies or other players cannot enter. One suggestion would be to build a tunnel out of the base and then block up the entrance with one layer of Dirt, thus making it inaccessible to zombies or enemy players whilst allowing for easy escape should your defense become overrun.
An escape kit can be maintained near the exit to the passage so that it is possible to survive until your base can be reoccupied Food, Bottled Water, medicines, and weapons are recommended. Park a vehicle, such as a Bicycle, Minibike, Motorcycle, or 4×4 Truck a short distance away from your base for a quick escape.
If you have a high building or tower that is high up, and you are able to jump over your tower's outer walls, you can make an elevated building just outside your wall line with Hay Bales on top. Hay Bales reduce fall damage, so if Zombies breach your defenses and climb up your tower to attack, you can escape by getting onto the top floor and jumping onto your hay bale escape route just outside the wall, running, recouping, and making a counterattack to take back your base.
Underground bases can take quite a long time to make and require the player to have pre-existing resources but are extremely easy to fortify and defend in both PVP and Eve. Zombies also have no regard for their own safety and will attempt to charge even through Wood Spikes or other traps, even if it means certain death.
This is the first phase in my guide, It will start when you start a new world, and you've just spawned with nothing and out in the open, In this phase, We will be focusing on finding the most ideal shelter possible to be found in your world, It doesn't matter if its Random Gen or the default world, As soon as you respawn, Take a look at your map to find out on which side you are currently located at, Weather its west, East, North or south, Then continue ahead searching for a shelter, keep in mind that in order to have a better chance of running into cities or buildings, Follow the main road, The main road is made of asphalt, So it's the roads that connected and lead to other landmarks and cities and on top of that, Connect it to each other, You will notice how important it is to memorize and save waypoints on cities and buildings in the near-future in your world, Now as you move on the road, You encounter a building, Building types differ from each other in each biome, Each biome has its own stereotypical buildings, For the grass lands, You may encounter Big Cabins in the woods, In the Desert, There is a reduced chance to stumble upon a very big city, The common buildings you may encounter in deserts are mostly abandoned houses, Medium Sized buildings with 2 stairways leading to its entrance, And mostly a bunch of small houses with medium distance between each building. Count how many entrances can A Human Survivor/Zombie enter the house, This includes Doors, Hatches and fragile walls.
The time you it's going to take to repair the entire base and upgrade it, Some buildings come in complete shape, Untouched and full of loot, Some come broken down and empty, Keep that in mind, Your base might be material-consuming more than other buildings. The Terrain surrounding your base, This can drastically change the loot and the type of buildings around you which differs from each biome.
This phase is the most crucial turning point in your Building, It's going to focus on revamping your base, Weather its repairing/Upgrading or Re-shaping you're building from the ground up, I will Uncover some methods and tips for you to do it as fast as possible and effectively and to consume less resources for your base. Stone: Essential for important crafting items and upgrades, Also smelting in forge.
Materials like Short iron pipe, Nails, Glue, Cloth fragments and duct tape play an important role in crafting some specific items, So keep in mind that you have to ensure their presence in your inventory when you intend to craft some helpful items. When it comes to repairing your base, Make sure you stack on Wood and stone to start repairing your blocks, You don't want to run and come back for every 10 blocks, You will waste 2x the time you are already spending on repairing your blocks, Your aim at your first day is to find a Good defensive base, and you have to repair/Upgrade its walls at least at sturdy wood level. This is the Core-part of my guide were I will show you some defensive methods and tips on how to defend and keep the zombies at bay, You see, Defending is the best attack in this game, If you play your cards well, You win, If you don't, You will suffer, When you reach the point were you are fully-suited and well-armed, You will be worrying about your base, Not your life, And this is the part were I will hopefully save the both of you.
Turrets + Layers of Spike traps and barbed wire: Now this is an old and a traditional 7 DID Defense idea, Still it proved to be effective till this day, When you plan on holding your base wall, You will use this at the entrance or at the sides of your base, Turrets will provide firepower at short-medium range while The spike traps provide contact-damage when being stepped-on, You can also add fragile wooden carpets on deep holes which includes spike traps or mines at the bottom, This is a very effective method to keep zombies away from walls without them being touched or damaged. Layers of Traps: This is also a common way to use your traps effectively against zombies by placing spike traps with barbed wire or mines at the last layer of your defense , You can also use dirt fragments as cheap walls to your base and surround the dirt wall with a deep hole right outside the wall, so nobody can jump or damage it, Also adding spikes at the bottom, By adding mines as the last layer of this defense then turrets on each side's While you have turret syndrome perk on MAX to let you control 2 turrets at the time, And a big space of wooden carpets that have spikes underneath it when zombies step on it, They will fall, And a small Vantage point for you in the middle to shoot the zombies, Proving such an effective way of breaking down the zombie hordes, Watch out for zombie policemen, They are the only zombies capable of damaging you from distance.
Watchtower: One of the most important tools of defending your house is a good vantage point, If you have a sniper or a hunting rifle, It won't help you as much as you are on a watchtower with the entire view of the house surroundings at your hands, More elevation = Better view and tactical awareness. A little tip to help you test your defense, When you are about to test your defense to see weather it's going to be any good, Wait for a screamer to scream and spawn some zombies, Or drag a nearby zombie horde to your base, All you have to do is, When they follow you back, Get inside your base and watch them from afar, Study their behavior and notice the AI Bathing that will be generated to have the best amount of exposure on your base, Zombies will always try to find a way in, Even if it's entirely locked in and isolated, If a spike hole trap is the only entryway, They will jump in like its nothing, So expect the unexpected and make an alternative plans to fix your problems just in case. There are also essential perks that you will need as an importance to your survival and to greatly extend your base defense, Those are the perks you are going to focus on.
When you are done with the Horde Night, And you noticed and took notes of your base weakness, If you survived the night, The best thing you can do for the building is spending the very first day after horde night repairing it and upgrading it, For 2 reasons, 1st Is because It will be back better or at the same original state as it was, Undamaged if you encounter a random horde attack on your base or a screamer, 2nd reason is you going to be done by the very first day repairing and upgrading your base, so you don't have to worry about your scavenging runs because you will have 6 days in front of you worth of looting! And I highly recommend you to store your essential resources like Forged iron, Stone and other materials in their very own respective containers, It might be a waste but if you choose containers to be a storage of only 1 specific item, It might be easy for you to sort through them, For example, I have stored all my gas tank supplies in this gas pump so I know all the gas I have is stored in here.
Soon at first I thought it was my files getting ed from playing on a multiplayer server...so I uninstalled and reinstalled. Well, turns out, they're still spawning somewhat obsessively. It's pretty aggravating when I'm having zombies spawning, literally ON TOP OF ME (less than 5 blocks away) that are RUNNERS during DAYLIGHT...on max difficulty every hit is a death sentence, so I keep having close calls... It's only random/heatmap spawns, prefabs never spawn day runners...
Is anyone else getting runners spawning during the day? Did this ever get officially added somewhere? Day and night settings can be defined by the player in the menu before starting a game.
You can also change how long a 24-hour cycle lasts (10, 20, 30, 40, 50, 60, 90, or 120 minutes in real time). Time of day or night does not affect how the player obtains experience, or loot, or any other variable besides how bright or dark the world is, and if the zombies are allowed to run or not.
It's advised to avoid looting at night due to the darkness enabling the Zombies ability to run. If you plan to go looting at nighttime you will have to put your Torch or Flashlight away to fight Zombies.
If the player attached a Flashlight to a Firearm they can choose to fire it and keep their light on, but the noise will attract a lot of Zombies, unless you have a Silencer Mod. This is if you don't want to use the current glitch which can cut a ton of time or already did all the other achievements in the Private game just have the single player survival achievements/ KM traveled achievements left.
2) Make a Private online game, which will be for people who want to use the glitch or to play with friends. Both choices give you control of the world settings; you can even turn zombies off.
Enemy Spawning: Disabled (until you are ready for zombie killing) Start making your way up to the top left-hand corner.
Once you are in the top left-hand corner you can choose anywhere to build your base, I found a wonderful spot is the school. Hopefully you have 20 plant fibers saved up, if not go ahead and collect them.
Now that you have somewhat of a base set up you have to collect a bunch of stuff inside the town or around it. If you search inside anything and find stuff you don't want THROW IT OUT ON THE GROUND so that way it can reset later.
You will want to find a mining helmet as soon as possible, when loots drop from the plane don't worry about them unless they fall into the town, you will bet getting those later. You can run outside the town and collect the loot drops, destroy cacti, mine rocks, chop down trees, find some Clay, or grab a bunch of snow.
Load up your inventory with Repair kits (the more the better, if you need a bunch make sure to craft some), Gasoline, and the wellness items. Go to an open area (I did next to the police station on the map as there is no water, or obstacles really, it is also flat).
If it is really long like mine, wrap around left going to the right-hand grip. Now what you are going to do is leave it like this until your controller turns off on its own, this will take up about 40% of your gas tank.
You are going to repeat this process until you have the achievement, whenever you take the rubber band off feed your character and refill gas tank. If you run out of Gasoline you can go back near you base and get more from the tanks, or head to any gas station using the map to fill up.
Neil Armstrong and if you had a huge stock of Wellness items you will get these: Alive and Kicking as a FiddleHealthy as a Horse If you don't have all 4, stock up on the Goldenrod Tea and Yucca Juice.
Make sure to build a ladder to the window (on the inside) so you can get on top of those bars. If this is your Private online world you can dupe Loads of ammo and keep killing zombies to your hearts desire.
If you are doing this without the dupe you will want to save up LOADS of ammo and repair kits. Once you are ready for zombie killing go back to the menu, load the world up and change two settings: Zombie spawn rate to max, and block durability to max.
Now you are basically going to go out and kill zombies as fast as you can, but you need to loot every body and take only what you need from them, primarily ammo! If you didn't then loot them and use the important stuff you find, you can get a good amount of ammo/guns especially from the Fat cop zombies.
Go ahead and build a bunch of wooden crates, 300 would be a safe number. If you see it, simply use a bandage by using RB/LB to navigate your quick item area if it is in there then hit LT to use it.
Last but not least of the Misc achievement, go up into the top right-hand corner (looking at the map) in the snow area where there is water and jump in the water without anything on to unlock this achievement once your temperature hits 0 degrees: The Polar Bare Club Sadly it is a “multiplayer achievement” you will need either a 2nd Xbox or a friend.
Your friend must turn off his/her controller while you put a rubber band on your and keep hitting them in the head until you have 2500 kills. This grind will take about 20 hours, so it will be a bit of a final long haul.
Napoleon Julius Caesar Genghis Khan Alexander the Great Now for the last set of achievements you will get in 2 possible ways: 2) load up any world other than single player, go to the edge of the map (radiation zone) and put a bedroll down in it and turn your controller off.
