Our State of Decay 2 Home Bases Locations Guide will tell you all about the bases and what sets them apart from the rest in State of Decay 2 so you can decide Where to Build your next Home Base.

State of Decay 2 Home Bases Locations

Home Bases are essentially safe zones where you can stash supplies and provide shelter to your survivors. When you claim a base, you get access to the facilities already there and you can build new facilities provided you have the resources.

At the beginning of the game, you get to choose one of the five areas that you want to reside in.

These are Maeghar Valley home base, the Cascade Hills home base, the Drucker County home base, the Providence Ridge home base, and the Trumbull Valley home base, each contemporary to one of the three geographic location that the game offers you to play in i.e. the valley, the foothills, and the plateau.

Each of the five locations has home bases that are quite similar so that you get the same outcome when you choose any one of the five locations.

However, as you progress in the game, you outgrow these initial home bases and have to acquire bases and outposts other than the starting base to house the survivors and heal the wounded.
