What if my character dies?

The good news – after death, the character will immediately appear at your base again, the base itself, blueprints, buildings, the level and skills of your survivor are not affected by death, the game continues!

Now it’s time for some bad news – after decease, the character’s inventory will be empty. You can try to return to the place of death and, if there’s a corpse there (unfortunately, this does not always happen, hungry zombies and wild animals are always on the move!), take back your belongings. In doing so, you take risks, because the corpse may no longer be present, or your character may even die a second time.

In all these cases, well … resources are lost forever. But accepting the loss doesn’t mean to be desperate, sometimes it’s much easier to find new items, especially since the game has a lot of opportunities to do this! 🙂

How do I build my base?

In order to start building, collect some logs, go to the Build mode, that’s the icon below the mini-map. Start with making the floor, then build walls and put everything you need inside the house you’ve built.

My Survival Guide is missing

The Survival Guide disappears once you complete 60 levels or if the timer for 30 days runs out. You could see the countdown in the first tab of the Shop or next to the rewards list in your Inbox.

If its time has expired in your game, it is no longer available.

How can I upgrade floor and walls?

In order to upgrade the floor or walls, open Build mode (icon below the mini-map) and select the item you want to upgrade. A window will appear and it will show you what resources you need for the upgrade and there will be the button “upgrade”.

Where can I find aluminium?

You can get aluminium bars by smelting wires found in a bunker or where humanitarian aid was dropped, or from bauxite, which is farmed together with iron on red locations.

Where can I find food and water?

For your character not to die of hunger and thirst, you have to watch their condition carefully in order to refill these stats in time. At first you can eat canned beans you find, obtain raw meat and berries. But when you make Campfire and Meat Dryer, you’ll be able to cook more nutritious dishes. You can get water by putting empty bottles into Rain Catcher or find it in boxes on locations.

What locations are meant by “dangerous” ones?

Each one of you has their own understanding of what is “dangerous”. So do the inhabitants of our post-apocalyptic world.

In general, the most dangerous locations are marked by the red sign.

If you are puzzled by the raider’s tasks asking you to complete some tasks in dangerous locations, you should head to Pine Woods or Limestone Spires.

I can’t place an object on the floor!

If you can’t place an object on the floor, make sure that this floor suits the object. Some of them require floor made of planks or stone.

And also don’t forget to check the maximum number of the object or structure that can be placed on the base, the limit can be seen during the placement of the object in construction mode, at the bottom of the screen. The same object is probably already exists at your base, so the game thinks that you don’t need another one at all 🙂

I can’t upgrade the door or the wall!

Before upgrading the door, you have to upgrade the adjoining floor. For a door made of planks you need floor made of planks too, the same applies to a stone door.

Who is the dealer and where can I find him?

The Dealer is an NPC that appears in the game from time to time in order to exchange items with a player. Usually when the Dealer is nearby, when opening the common map there is a notification about that. In order to receive such notifications one has to make a radio. However, don’t attack the Dealer, this won’t do any good.

How do I keep my character clean?

When the character gets dirty, it becomes easier to spot them and more difficult to play. In order to get clean again, you have to take a shower. You can build a shower on your base already at starting levels, the shower uses water as resource.

Where do I find more water?

You can find water in bottles on your locations, in bunkers and in humanitarian aid. Of course, there’s not much water there, but if you keep empty bottles you’ll be able to fill them with water in Rain Catcher, its blueprint is available at starting levels.

What does the healer do?

The Healer is an NPC that sometimes comes to your base for half an hour in order to offer you some of his potions. The potions have different effects, for example they refill energy or double the experience earned.

Certain crafts like gunsmith bench require a chest. However, you will no longer be able to craft a chest, as there’s only a small box blueprint in the list of recipes. Craft a small box, place it on the ground, upgrade it to a chest and put it back to your inventory. After that you can either use it in some crafting recipe or take advantage of its increased capacity.

How do I apply new skills?

In the inventory menu below your nickname (slightly to the right) you will see a green star, tap it to get access to all available bonuses and skills of your character.

The skills panel has three tabs: active, passive and temporary.

You can choose two skills out of the active skills list and assign them to buttons at the lower left and the lower right corners of the screen. Don’t forget that some active skills have cooldown.

Passive skills will be working from the moment you unlock them. Temporary buffs can be obtained with the help of pets or as a reward for completing a quest.
