-An iOS (iPhone 5 or higher quality) or Android phone (Samsung Galaxy S6 or higher quality) Well, before you dismiss the free-to-play browser-based ZombsRoyale for its simplistic looks, it might interest you to know that there’s some real skill and strategy present in these tense 5-minute 100-player battles.
There’s a lot to learn, and a lot to get out of this excellent little battle royale, all of which we’ll go over with our 60 ZombsRoyale tips and tricks, covering everything from landing and looting to weapon types, supply drops, and advanced fighting techniques. Now let’s get on with our 60 top tips for ZombsRoyale players of all skill levels.
Bombs Royale is a free-to-play battle royale game inspired by games such as Fortnite and PUBG, where you and 60-100 other players drop on the same map, loot up, and fight to be the last person standing. Bombs Royale is playable for free either in your browser or by installing the game via the Discord Store.
Games are incredibly quick in Bombs Royale, with a winner usually being crowned around the 5-minute mark. You can queue up either solo, or in duos or squads of up to 4 players, either with friends or strangers.
As you play games, you’ll earn XP and levels which will unlock various cosmetic items such as skins, melee weapons, emotes, and so on. You can tell bots apart from real players because they’ll keep moving back and forth on the spot, and won’t loot anything.
But the vast majority of enemies you’ll come across will be real players. You can change your key binds in the main menu using the Settings button in the top-right corner.
As with all battle royales, there’s a lot of equipment and weapons to loot in ZombsRoyale. Always keep the same kinds of weapons and items in the same hot bar slots, so you can learn them through muscle memory.
Generally you’ll find weapons and equipment either lying on the floor or in crates and chests. You’ll generally find the best loot far from the initial flight path.
If you’re after a quieter, less hectic early-game, you should wait until near the end of the flight path. The map in Bombs Royale is very small, so you’ll nearly always have enemies nearby.
There are four types of ammo (Light, Medium, Heavy, Shotgun) and you can see how much you have above your hot bar in the bottom-right. There’s no armor or helmets to equip, but you do have a Shield bar like in Fortnite which starts empty but can be filled up to 100.
Every so often in a Bombs Royale match you’ll be notified of incoming Air Drops/Supply Drops. These drops are marked on the map, and they usually make for very highly contested areas, because they contain high-tier weapons like the Trident of the Depths, the AMP Sniper Rifle, the XM8 Burst Assault Rifle, and so on.
Pick up good guns (Bolt-Actions, high-tier SMS and As) even if you don’t intend to use them. Hybrid Potions are excellent because they heal both Shields and Health simultaneously (up to 25 of each over 10 seconds).
Learn each weapon’s bullet velocity, because it tells you how far to lead with your shots (shoot where your opponent is going to be, rather than where they are). Friendly fire is off in Bombs Royale, meaning nothing you do will hurt your teammates.
And within their categories there are range differences too: AKS and AR-15s will fire shots further than M4s and Scars. Again, for all the meets, check out our Bombs Royale weapons guide.
If you have the range advantage (i.e. you have a good Sniper Rifle, and they don’t), try to keep your player to your left or right rather than above or below, because you’ll see them earlier. A Bolt-Action Sniper Rifle shot followed by a burst of Assault Rifle or SMG fire (depending on your distance from the enemy) is usually enough to end a fight before it even begins, particularly out in the open.
Always bear in mind that you can shoot through windows to get to enemies indoors, and your opponents can do the same to you. Cactus Bombs and Rubber Guns are phenomenal against players hiding inside buildings.
Use them to prevent an enemy from advancing when you’re on the back foot, or be sneaky and combine them with a Reverse Impulse to create the One-Two Punch: Explosive Edition. And avoid committing too much to your own fight if there’s a chance you’ll get third-partied while injured.
You can hide inside bushes, but you have to keep still or nearby enemies will hear you rustling. If you position yourself correctly you can hold a Potion or a small gun (like a P90) inside the bush while remaining completely hidden.
So pay attention to your surroundings and think about where they’re most likely to be (houses and bushes are always likely spots). You can bait players into pushing by beginning to apply a healing item, then suddenly switching to your weapon and annihilating them when they get near enough.
You can open and close doors extremely quickly by double-tapping your Interact button. Switching quickly between two Pump Shotguns or two Bolt-Actions will allow you to fire faster than with just one.
Supply Drop crates block all bullets and damage, and are indestructible, which means they can be used to great effect as cover during a fight. This means you are surprisingly tank, and can still be of use in distracting opponents or absorbing shots.
There are tonnes of crates scattered across the map even outside the main areas, so you’ll nearly always find what you need. You can hold Interact or Space to speed your descent while landing at the start of a match.
Keep track of your (and everyone else’s) distance from the ground by viewing the progress bar to the right of each character. There are circular blue/purple Teleworkers scattered across the map, always in different locations each match.
You can land on a Teleport er at the very start of the flight path, and you’ll often be transported to the other side of the map long before anyone else gets there, giving you time to gear up ahead of time. Certain of the small huts around the map can be destroyed entirely (the ones you usually find in rows next to one another).
The border that encroaches across the map and forces players closer together is very quick to start shrinking. If you’re on the “fat” side of the circle then you have further to go and the border may move faster than you, so you should get going sooner.
But if you’re inside or approaching a building, you’ll be forcibly zoomed in any way, so you’d be better off equipping an SMG or Assault Rifle here. In the late game, when there are just 4 or 3 players left, it becomes much more important to reach the next circle before anyone else, because you’ll have a distinct advantage if you’re not the one sandwiched between the border and your enemies.
Use this to gain the element of surprise, and beware of others employing this trick when nearby such houses. Certain areas of the map have their own unique crates and chests which many players ignore because they don’t realize what they are.
Radical Reef, Cyber City, and Space Base all have crates unique to their locations. To finish off, here are some miscellaneous tips that it’s still useful to know about, even though they don’t fit into any of the above categories.
You can hit F7 to bring up information regarding your current Ping and FPS in the top-left of your screen. You can view your overall stats in the Profile tab of the Bombs Royale main menu.
There you can see your overall kills and wins, as well as your kills, wins, matches, and top 10 placements within solos, duos, and squads (stats from playing the various Lams aren’t counted). Hopefully you’ve learned a thing or two (or ten) about how to improve your ZombsRoyale game.
