Quick Tips for Beginners

Thank you for printing this page from Remember to come back to check for updates to this guide and much more content for Zombie Defense

1. Adjusting zombie-Kill price – depending on your current funds (within mission), cash reward per kill depreciates as it reaches certain levels of cash. From zero (and negative credits) to $2000 for instance, each zombie you kill will be rewarded $22 dollar each. Meaning, it is wise to spend your funds as soon as they reach your requirement purchase within the mission. This way, you get top dollar price for each zombie you kill. Keep this in mind especially when farming for resources in each level – to earn the level’s maximum reward potential.

2. Increasing “in-game credits” in the passive upgrades hub extends your negative credit threshold – resulting to maximizing the value of each zombie you kill as long as you don’t reach past $2000 in your (within-mission) funds.

3. Try to digest the game’s simple RPS mechanic (rock-paper-scissor) to learn the best combination of recruits there are in every given stage. Given that each and every recruit have their strengths and weaknesses, perfectly pairing them up to patch-up each of their weaknesses is a good way to outlast the waves of Zombies.

4. Strategy comes not only with proper pairing of your recruits, but by effectively pin-pointing of the most strategic location/s given on the map as well. As far as the Regular Difficulty mode is concerned, there is just but one stage that has no strategic location to offer you to play with. Find for a tight spot where you’d easily funnel-in the wave of incoming Zombies. Put up a pair of short-range recruit (most basic is the Eliminator, but best fit to this position is the Chainsaw recruit) to serve as the tank (with its high HP), with a long-ranged recruit to trim down the farther end of the wave, as well as the “throwers” that your front melee recruit wouldn’t be able to reach.

5. Almost every given passive upgrade eases up a lot burden on your game so figuring out which ones to prioritize really depends on your strategy and preference. Aside from unlocking the much needed array of recruits, some of the most important ones are the Max Rank upgrade, the slot protection upgrade (defense increase), Team Size upgrade, health regeneration, upgrade cost reduction, and the weapon damage increase. Later on in the game, check some of the gold upgrades where you get to increase time speed, toughen up your crew with more HP, increase fire rate, and cash bonus multipliers.

6. Always remember that you can easily maintain a slower pace during boss waves. This way, you can move your units around the map to recover their life points with regeneration. This simple technique can bring you a long way especially during the earlier parts of the game where you are limited to less-powerful available recruits.
