Building your own community is pretty much the core of State of Decay 2. Your community will need to be tended to and you will need resources to provide for them. Some of these resources will be quite hard to find and that is where our State of Decay 2 Scavenging Guide comes in.
Our State of Decay 2 Scavenging Guide will tell you all about scavenging in State of Decay 2 so that you can easily farm resources and get enough supplies for your community.
State of Decay 2 Scavenging
There are 6 different resources for you to find in State of Decay 2.
Food will keep your community healthy and maintain their morale. It can be found in stores, houses, and warehouses. Ammunition is for your weapons and can be found in gun stores and military bases. Fuel will be used for your vehicles and bases.
Medicine will contain diseases and heal injured survivors. Construction Materials will be used to build and upgrade the facilities that you have.
Lastly, parts will be used for repairing and crafting items. Let’s go ahead and take a look at how to quickly farm your resources.
The first thing that you need to do to get new resources is by scavenging it. They can be found in containers and buildings inside of the game’s world. Resources may be available individually or as a batch.
Individual items will be filling your inventory and you are allowed to carry 1 rucksack on top of that. You can carry multiple sacks with you if you have a vehicle or other players with you. Once you are at your base, you can deposit your findings in the storage if they are bagged.
If you seem to be running low on resources, you can use the radio feature. Press the direction pad and establish contact with an associate who can help you find supplies nearby you.
This is an ideal method for when you need to quickly find resources and have scavenged through an area. A radio contact costs 35 influence per call but it can be worth it if you are caught in a pickle.
After the beginning of the game, you will start to advance your technology. At the start of the game, you will need to keep on finding resources in order to survive.
However, as your base progresses, it will start to become self-sufficient. It will be a slow process but soon enough you will start to see resource gains automatically in the form of medicine and food items.
Lastly, your outposts will also provide bonuses relating to their purpose. You can see a building’s resource benefits so try to select the buildings that you feel will benefit your future resource goals. Do not select an outpost just for the sake of it and bide your time until the perfect one comes along.
