Project Zomboid Basics Guide: Tips to Get Started

Project Zomboid is one of the most complete (and complicated) zombie survival games on the market, and in this basic guide, you will find several tips to get off to a good start. Whether you already have some experience or are a complete newbie, here you will find a good handful of information that may be useful to you.

There are a number of key points when it comes to focusing on your first games, and here you will find guidelines to improve little by little.

Tips to get started in Project Zomboid: a basic guide

There is no shame in easy mode

It is important that you keep this in mind in your first games: easy mode is not any kind of defeat. Learning the basic mechanics of the game is very important when it comes to knowing how to approach each game and situation, and the higher difficulty modes can be a problem in this regard.

Our recommendation is that you start at this level of difficulty, and as you look looser, increase it. Ideally, in your first 3-4 games you use the easy mode so that situations and enemies give you some court, so now you know.

Traits and penalties

There’s a lot to keep in mind when it comes to traits and penalties, and these things can ruin or save your game:

  • Traits such as Agoraphobia or Claustrophobia disappear over time, while others such as obesity can be removed with proper nutrition.
  • In your first few games, the ” Lucky ” trait will come in handy (better luck in dealing with situations).
  • Always consider whether you are interested in getting soft penalties (as a smoker) to get more points for your character.

Experience

Experience is one of the key points of the game, and knowing how to get it and take advantage of it will be key:

  • Take advantage of the first 9 days to watch ALL TV shows of the Life and Living channel. There are a total of 3 programs (from 06:00 to 11:59, from 12:00 to 17:59 and from 18:00 to 24:00), and all 3 will interest you enough to get a LOT of free experience. As of the 10th day, they will no longer be available.
  • Raise the mechanics to level 2 and the Electricity to level 1 to be able to make bridges to the cars, something VERY important. The profession of thief helps a lot to this. If you want maximum security and you don’t have the car keys, break the passenger window and get in there: zombies won’t be able to bite you if you’re in the driver’s seat.
  • Until you improve your resistance, try not to face groups of more than 3 zombies , being the ideal to kill them one by one or two by two. When you have raised this attribute high enough, you will be able to kill more groups of zombies at the same time if you have the right weapons.

Water, food and nutrition

The best advice you can get regarding water is that, when planning the construction of your “definitive” base, do it near a source of water, such as a river. Get yourself a few garbage bags if you want to create a rainwater collector – you’ll appreciate it later.

For food, you have to know that caloric requirement and hunger are two different things, and they do not have to go hand in hand. The best thing you can do is try to keep your character between 75 and 85 kilos to avoid weight penalties, and thus keep it in the best possible range.

Cooking will be vital for your character to be happy and well-fed

By cooking food, they bring more happiness. If you have something that is not fresh (but is not rotten) make a soup out of it.

Combat

We start this section with a fairly clear and direct message regarding firearms: FLEE from them. Although their effectiveness is clear (as long as you increase that attribute in skill), they make a noise of a thousand demons and are going to attract a veritable horde of zombies. The only one that is worthwhile despite the obvious risks is the shotgun, which hits like a truck and probably attracts a million zombies from the surrounding area.

The best thing you can do in the first levels is to get some stones and sticks to create makeshift spears. These spears can only hold 2-3 zombies, but they hit pretty hard and will make you kill them fast. Remember that you will catch the aggravation of a zombie as long as it sees you, so keep that in mind when leaving their vision to give them a slip.

The fastest and most effective strategy for lone zombies is to push them to the ground and blow their heads out. Remember to point the mouse to the head (enlarge the pointing cursor in the options). If you plan to take advantage of the clothing and equipment of the zombies, use hitting weapons (such as baseball bats), since edged weapons (such as axes or machetes) will destroy their clothes.

Last tips

Here you will find a wide range of useful information that can save your game (and your life):

  • ALWAYS look out the window before entering a room. This way you will avoid quite unpleasant surprises.
  • Climb fences to escape the zombies and quickly lose the agro.
  • Try to sleep and stay rested as much as possible. To alleviate fatigue, you can eat (yes, eat) coffee or take vitamins.
  • Use the Z to quickly change your position in the seats of a car . Try not to run over everything in front of you or you will blow up the car VERY fast. If you need to rest and there are not many zombies around, park your car against a wall and sleep on the side against the wall.
  • Do you remember the tip to make bridges in cars ? Well, we remind you again. It’s very important.
  • The electricity and water will eventually turning off automatically, so you have to make generators and water supplies ahead of the future (cuidadito with carbon dioxide generators, if you put them indoors will kill you).
  • When exiting and entering buildings, ALWAYS try to use doors or windows that are not broken . Jumping out of a broken window is VERY likely to cut yourself, causing an injury that will be a long-term problem.

Defeating Korisca

Korisca is the fourth main boss that players will get to face in Hi-Fi Rush. Players will fight her in the 6th stage of the game where Chai will break into her office to talk her out rather than fighting but you will end up getting fighting her. Korisca fight is different than the previous boss fights and at the start, you will get to parry and dodge her attacks.

At the start, you will get to parry attacks by pressing the parry button which is B at the perfect timing of her attacks. Before she gets to attack you, you will listen a beat to which she readies her attacks. You need to memorize that beat and press the Parry button in the same order and time to perfectly parry her attacks. After parrying her attacks three times, she will use Wind Attacks which are un-parryable.

You will have to use the dodge button which is RB to dodge the wind attack and use the parry to parry the rest of the attacks. Un-parryable attacks are shown with a wind symbol before she gets to attack you. As you deplete her HP one time, her health will regenerate and she will throw more fast-paced and longer combos at you.

Make sure to memorize all the hits of the combo and press the parry and dodge buttons accordingly. You will not get to land any combo or special attack because you want her to join your team in taking down SPECTRA.

Hi-Fi Rush: How to Defeat Zanzo

Hi-Fi Rush is full of action along with a taste of countless beats. Players will get to explore the different parts of Vandelay Island and encounter different enemies. As players progress through the main story of the game, they will get to fight the main heads of Vandelay Island as well which are the main bosses of the game. One of the bosses that players will get to fight is Zanzo who is the head of the R&D Branch where all the AI Development of SPECTRA happens.

In this guide, we’ll tell you how to defeat Zanzo in Hi-Fi Rush.

Defeating Zanzo

Zanzo is the third boss of the game which players will encounter in the fourth stage of the game. Defeating Zanzo takes a bit of an alternative way rather than fighting him in a 1v1 battle. Zanzo has created many machines and tools with his AI Development skills and players will have to go through all the waves of enemies that Zanzo has created. By doing this, players will be exhausting the Budgets of Zanzo.

Players will go through different choruses of Zanzo where he will bring out his different machines that you have to defeat in order to defund Zanzo. In the first chorus, you will get to fight the normal enemies. Defeat them to move on to the next chorus where you will get to fight the first major machine named “PGR-0101”. This machine has a variety of attacks as well as a shield. The best way to defeat it is to call Macaron who will destroy the shield of the machine and you will get the opening where you will be able to land the combos with your attack. Do the perfect timing combos to recharge your special attack. Do the Special Attack along with calling Peppermint to quickly defeat it.

The Budget of Zanzo greatly decreases after surviving the second chorus in the simulator. Later in the chorus, you will get to fight the enemies with the shield that you can break by calling Peppermint as well as Macaron. Use Macaron to break the shield of some enemies and for the rest of the enemies call peppermint. Take out the enemies one by one to encounter the next technology of Zanzo. You will get to fight the Drones for which you will have to parry their attacks. Parrying their attacks will give you the opportunity to hit them again and you will be able to take them out in no time. Call Peppermint as well while fighting the drones.

In the third and last chorus, you will make your way to the lava area where you will have to dodge the falling lava balls. Dodge the green marks on the ground to dodge the lava balls and use the zipline to move to other areas. You will make your way to the Gift Basket where the last fight takes place. You will get to fight the same enemies as before where you will have to call Macaron to take their shields down and then attack them with your combo attacks and special attacks. However, the main thing that you want to focus on during the fight is falling lava balls.

Make sure to dodge the green areas on the ground to dodge the lava. Fight the enemies by calling Peppermint and Macaron to take them out. Once you have defeated the enemies, you will see the lens from earlier in the fight. You need to attack the lens which will start a sequence. Complete the sequence by pressing the buttons on the screen to start a cutscene. Zanzo will get defunded in the cutscene which leads Chai to defeat Zanzo and retrieve the USB which contains the Data about SPECTRA.

Hi-Fi Rush: How to Defeat Rekka

Hi-Fi Rush is full of action along with a taste of countless beats. Players will get to explore the city of Vandelay where they will get to uncover cool technologies as well as fight different enemies. As players progress through the game, they will get to fight different bosses that have only one purpose, to recall (Kill) the defected which is Chai, our main character. One of the main bosses that players will get to fight is Rekka.

In this guide, we’ll tell you how to defeat Rekka in Hi-Fi Rush.

Defeating Rekka

Rekka’s both arms are robotic and she will be doing a lot of punching attacks as well as dashing attack combos with them. The Punching attacks are easier to dodge but if you get hit by one of the dashing combo attacks, you will be hit by the rest of the combo as well so, try to dodge it by looking at the ground. There will be a range meter and the direction of where Rekka will be dashing. Stay away from the range and the direction and let her complete her combo so, you don’t get in her way while she is doing the combo.

To deal damage to Rekka, hit her with your attack combos and try to sync them with the beat to deal extra damage and charge your special attack quickly. Once the special attack is charged, use it to deal a decent amount of damage to her. You can also call Peppermint during the fight to deal more damage to her. Once you have lowered her first bar, she will get stunned and you will get to deplete her first bar of HP. After that, she will remove the cover of the floor to absorb the electric current on her robotic arms.

Now, she will be able to land the punches with electric current. Punches can be dodged easily but she can trick you with the moves. She will also be doing the ground slam with the electric current that has a bit of range. If you are inside the ground slam range then you will get electrocuted which will take a lot of your HP. Try to maintain a distance from her and don’t go to remove the cover of the arena because it will give you damage as well. She will also do the slam attack on the electric wires which will generate shock waves in the arena and in order to dodge that, you will have to double jump and grab one of the magnets in the air.

She will create an energy shield around her which can be easily broken by calling peppermint. Other than dodging her moves, you can easily damage her by hitting her with the combo and calling Peppermint. Once you have depleted the second bar of her HP, you will get to complete a sequence of dodging the pipes that are thrown by Rekka. Dodge the Pipes by moving left and right and after the sequence, you can just use your special attack on her and call peppermint at the same time to deal great damage to her. She will be using pipes to do the slam attacks which can be dodged easily. She will also use her arms to grab you so, try to avoid it by doing a double jump until she stops trying to grab you. Other than that, just keep doing your combo attacks and calling peppermint to deal damage to her.

After depleting the third bar of her HP, the arena will turn red and she will begin to do the dashing combo with electric arms. You can just keep your distance until she has done the combo. After that, use your special attack if charged and call peppermint to deal damage. She will also be using the rest of her attacks so, just dodge them and keep calling peppermint to deplete her HP gradually. Once you get close to her, do the combo and land the perfect sync to stun her and do the special attack to defeat her.
