Hordes and Infestations

Thank you for printing this page from Remember to come back to check for updates to this guide and much more content for State of Decay
Last Updated:


A horde is a large group of zombies moving across the game, even if they are outside of your visible range. These hordes are formed when several smaller groups meet each other and become one, huge collective super-group. Average hordes are around 12-14 zombies together, though some may be bigger. Sometimes hordes are known to appear during defensive missions, and two hordes may join together which becomes more challenging.


These groups are created randomly on a certain location. Zombies will begin to spawn in an infestation area, and you must defeat the required number of zeds, plus the required number of screamers to clear an Infestation. It is best advised to kill the screamers first to avoid more zombies joining.

My game said that a horde moved into a house which vacate an infestation. Is this how it works?
