When you get stuck and you are using the stuck function. It says: Hold your position...
Tyler Sane (8 days ago)
I believe that it's very important to go out one character at a time in the beginning because what if you're base is being attacked? And you're tiring 2 ppl out instead of 1 when they all can take then own journey and stack up on points!.

The one thing to know is that the game is fun for 48h at most, then you already know all the mechanics and its boring af

I’ve had no issues with any bugs in this game so stop talking shit dickface

Regarding hidden infestations on the map: if you zoom out right to the point when the buildings disappear, buildings with infestations are still visible. Saves a lot of time mousing over every building.

I would love to love this game but the building part is so confusing it kills the gameplay for me
Callme V (15 days ago)
Or how your cars will randomly not work right at all. And heaven forbid you reset the game...it will "punish" you.
Callme V (15 days ago)
This game is a troll. Like how out of no where zombies will pop out of thin air in front of you to kill you. This game also made me download the new independence package...so now I have revolutionary war British soldiers everywhere.

I always see stuff that other players complain about in games I rarely ever experience issues I've been playing State Of Decay 2 a lot and I have never gotten stuck I always wondered why I never experienced any of these reported issues in games.

This is the most tedious game I’ve ever played
Yuki kami (16 days ago)
he forgoot u dont have to bring all ur stuff like suppies back and forth. Keep ur stuff in truck, go to parking area then go to ur trunk to open it pres RT everything go in ur base with out u going back and forth.

takes forever to load into my community my screen goes black
Jordan Barrett (20 days ago)
Another reason to help other survivors is that you can ally with the enclaves then they provide bonuses, like moral, resources, extra storage, etc.

Have u ever encountered the invincible juggernaut glitch I dumped 60 shotgun shells into a juggernaut once he didn’t die I shut down the game then started it back up and he was dead
lilyannrae (23 days ago)
I wish there was an option to play without a community, like as a lone survivor. That would be be fun too
KV HW (25 days ago)
Don’t fight hostile enclaves with guns or melee weapons. Run them over with a vehicle. You will take little to no damage, and they will die quicker
Anonymous Muffin (25 days ago)
Does anyone else’s game freeze a lot? I’ll be roaming around and a loading symbol will appear at the corner and I’ll have to restart the game :/
iDivineAegis (27 days ago)
Good guide If I could add a tip myself. Yes, always bring a companion. But also some enclaves are gonna enlist your help for a certain mission pertaining to them. They'll then begin to follow you. When I was running thru the first time, Greenie and the other broad needed my help so they joined my party on top of already having a follower. I haven't tested doing other missions while they are currently under my follow. But say you need help clearing infestations or plague hearts, now you're gonna have a grp of people and not just a duo. Also on my new play through, I kept my enclave at bout 5 people (for building larger shit) and spent the first 3 days farming resources. Have 1-2 enclaves for allies/trade(which will also keep you from the constant running around and losing allies). Focus on those and you'll have a cheerful enclave like myself. I have yet to drop below Cheerful. Next goal now is to move to a bigger facility then I can worry about getting more survivors.
Grays0n (28 days ago)
One of the best way to kill Plague Hearts is Molotovs! They are relatively easy to get if you have a workshop, and they do crazy damage to them. Just make sure to have something to distract zombies with and you'll be good to go.

You can find both Power and Water Facilities which can be Outposts. They cost Fuel per Day as Upkeep. I find it very valuable to gun for one of these (and the Fuel Points required to keep it running) for the huge Morale Boost, as these will Power/Water the ENTIRE BASE as long as fueled. Much better than Water Collection and Generators. This frees you up 2 Spots for other things INSIDE your Base, though it does put a small crunch early on since you need 2 Outposts for Fuel (on the Valley Map however there is a Base that adds 100 Extra Fuel Storage, though it's considered the SECOND best Home Base), in the North, near a Power Outpost.

You forgot to mention that being on good side of conclave when you trade with them , items are cheaper For example on neutral this military conclave was asking 700 inf for ar-15 when they became friendly it was only 325inf

Pablo Pharoah (1 month ago)
In the first game, we could send members out on missions on their own - i.e. find materials, supplies, etc. Sometimes, they’d get stuck or caught in a bind, depending on their skills, and we’d have to rescue them. Why did they remove this? It was a great way to multitask, was a good incentive to improve ALL characters...

Too bad you can't drive into your parking space with a car full of rucksacks and auto deliver all of them at once anymore. :(
Charmader Orange (1 month ago)
Find a van and cherish it. It can hold a ton of supplies.

So basically you need to know.... oh wait, nothing from this vid, cause its RPG, MMO Atari adventure basics of every game we have ever played that had an inventory/skill system blah blah...

I must be lucky as hell. I just finished all 4 runs, gaining all the achievements (except the 10K zombie kills), and only gotten stuck once. Other that that there is a wide variety of MINOR bugs which is passible. Here's a list i've encountered: Door open when closed (But works perfectly fine), Cars getting stuck on Rocks, Hud freezing rendering everything uncontrollable (so I have to close the game and relaunch), At one point some enemy human npc was INVINCIBLE, your companion running away to a weird direction, side quest npc's running away, a weird white line across your screen when driving during dark, I think at one point a Juggernaut was invincible in my base and all 8 of my npc's with all carrying machine guns couldn't dmg him (so had to close game before it killed anyone in my base), INFESTATIONS weren't popping up on map (so you had to manually hover over every house to figure out which place is infested, one of my npc's gardening skill wasn't levelling up no matter i did (which probably pissed me off the most cause i was highly invested in that character and could never fix even when turning OFF n ON the game), the plague soldiers you radio for help comes out the plague house and jogs away (as in they don't fucking help you take out the plague house), and probably some other minor bugs that wasn't worth remembering. Now what saved all of this was the game's AUTO-SAVE Mechanic. If it wasn't for this sole mechanic, I probably wouldn't be playing this game still.

Always be prepared for traders. Some of them are traps and will try to kill you when you get to them.

Another tip; Play through the tutorial, start a new game, skip the tutorial and you can pick three survivors from scratch instead of the douchebags you get assigned automatically.

State of Decay and Dying Light are the best zombie games to date in my opinion

Great game did 4 days of play but had to delete and start again because first Base was terrible it was in an area full of houses with zombies and my Dr left me because she didn't feel safe my mains buddy got killed by a hored including an infected fast type zombie just from a bit of noise I made 😁😁 also main character from the start got kill along with a other buddy because I threatened a nabor so was down to 2 last survivors so I have high hopes for my 2nd savefile 😁😁😁

Tip 11, be aware your character will freeze and get stuck every 30 45 min thus ruining the game.
xGhostGaming (1 month ago)
Does anyone know if when you’re in someone else’s game if your supplies still go down? (Like food, fuel etc) Also when you’re in someone else’s game can survivors that you aren’t playing as still die of blood plague or leave the camp due to low morale?

HellStingOzUnit (1 month ago)
My advice is have a van or any kind of car in a parking spot at your base so u can store bags in it with haven to worry about survivors in you base breaking all of it also good if u don't have a lot of storage space at your base also never really bring anyone with u to stop a heart because if your trying to set up a bomb they might attack the heart and screw u up because zombies will start coming at you the stuck action on the walky isn't really that good because for me it was more of the cars getting stuck then u
Jeff (1 month ago)
This game just feels empty to me, the survivors in your group don’t do anything and just seem like npc’s rather than your friends. You can’t even send them out on runs or scouting missions, nothing! Zombies are waaay too easy as well, I’ve never died once and I’ve played 30 hours!
Kooky katt (1 month ago)
Jeff Um....that makes zero sense
Robbie Anstead (1 month ago)
Something I found later on that I wish I knew to begin with was putting suppressors on bolt action rifles is good because they can’t break or jam anyways. I figure that is kinda Important.

Also with Rucksacks, bring someone with you from the safe house and switch to that character, so you can bring an additional rucksack with them also :)

Hey uhm i think the rucksack thing is a personnal situation thing! I barely ever find rucksacks!

To be honest, I love getting water and power outposts so I don't have to waste a free build space on those. Fuel is kinda easy to find

1-10 been doing since day 1 well now day 286 mood enthusiastic, Food: 39, meds: 34, Ammo: 40, Materials: 42, Fuel: 40 And yes you can kill the enclaves theyr just annoying tbh just do a headshot on em and theyre easy picking just scavenge left n right its easy

Also, the signal booster is probably the single greatest item in the game.

This video makes me very happy because it's actually helpful for a new player (not me but someone like my finest friend who's never played SOD). It's like this video was made by real gamers who has actually played the game. Just before watching this video I saw another that claimed they were giving tips but instead suggested Doing things that would absolutely get you're whole community killed and literally suggested to kill you're infected survivors like curing them is too hard to do, and to take their things like you couldn't still use them while the character is alive... they didn't even justify it, they just ended the segment with a joke. These tips are actually things that I've been using since the first SOD so I'd highly recommend taking these tips into consideration and not listen to a game journalist who just wants you to experience the new features of the game instead of actually playing it.

Something to note about the medical radio feature: it’s only available if you have a doctor in your community.

I tried to get into the first one a few months ago but didn't like it. I have a hard time putting the controller down playing this one. Surprising to me because I'm burned out on zombie games.

The bugs and weird things that have happened to me: Door looks open but it isn't (still works like one though), My character not being able to climb a ladder(fixed it already), Cars stuck on rocks, An invisible follower following me (cant interact), One time i ran out of fuel near a wall and the fuel hatch was on the wall side so there was no way of refueling it, Last bug is that my screen keeps flashing a grey line and the hud disappears and reappears a few times.
Lily Ferrari (1 month ago)
Nice tips, I agree with you, and I did mention most of them like the gas thing or the radio in my review => https://goodmorninggamers.blogspot.com/2018/05/review-state-of-decay-2.html A funny remark I read somewhere though... "if zombie apocalypse happened 18 months ago, how come the cars look like they were wrecked years ago?" XD

Anybody know how to let ur players regain stamina i switch off them but they never get stamina back
dacentafielda12 (1 month ago)
Depends on if they're just tired (You'll see Zs) or if it's trauma related. If it's trauma related, you'll have to treat them manually if you don't have an Infirmary 2 or higher. If it's just fatigue, just switch to another character until you get the notification they're rested. Either way, it's going to take time.

dacentafielda12 it's the worst. The vehicles get stuck SO easy. High center it and you're just fucked.

I did the same thing. Ran it over a box somehow and couldn't get it to move. I was across the map headed back to base with a full load of supplies.
Mushroom Elm (1 month ago)
I've been playing for days. Haven't gotten stuck once. But the multiplayer is shit. Got videos I need to upload of playing with friends. Constant bandwith issues. We would tap each other's cars and start flipping around.

If you trade out characters pretty regularly, your stats will all be around the same. You won't have to worry near as much unless you have a fresh character join your enclave.

state of decay was amazing even in the first one, the second also amazing but harder thats why its really good
IIISixStringIII (1 month ago)
So here's a really big question.. I've never played state of decay, and I've looked at reviews and most of them are saying that the game isn't very good JUST BC IT'S SO MUCH LIKE THE FIRST ONE. I can't find n e thing about how much newcomers would enjoy this game, compared to the vets who've been playing and have invested a lot of time in the first game. But n e ways, my question is, as a gamer who loves things like a good and deep progression system, I.E. obtaining new skills, new weapons (for playable characters), good combat, grinding for resources, using said resources to upgrade my HQ/base, and other things that games like Warframe, Monster Hunter: World, Witcher 3, Borderlands, and others of that type, will I like this game? ..My time is very valuable to me, so before spending $30 on something that I might enjoy at first, but get burned out on within a few weeks, I'd like to know if you, Gameranx, and anyone who reads this comment, would suggest this game to someone like me. Any feedback would be GREATLY appreciated. Thanks. :)
