How to Beat State of Decay 2
State of Decay 2 can feel a little open-ended when you first start exploring your environment. The game doesn’t really do a great job of telling you what your ultimate objective is or how much progress you’re really making towards beating it. As such, we’ve put together this quick and handy guide to run through everything you’ll have to do, how many Plague Hearts you’ll need to beat, and any ‘end game’ content, so to speak, that may keep you in the world of State of Decay 2 that little bit longer.
First things first, let’s you run you through the key objective you need to complete in State of Decay 2. And yes, you’ve probably already guessed that it’s down to you and your group of survivors to take out all the Plague Hearts in your territory. There are 10 in total, and upon completing this, your community’s leader will want to establish a lasting legacy once they’ve gone.
The Legacy mission you get will depend on whether they’re a Sheriff, Trader, Builder, or Warlord. Regardless, these missions don’t tend to take too much longer as long as your community is in a fairly good-stead by this point. You should be able to stock back up and immediately head out. Completing the last part of the Legacy questline will result in you seeing the credits and State of Decay 2 officially ‘ending.’ However, by completing the Legacy mission, you’ll have unlocked a Boon for a future playthrough (again this varies depending on your leader). You can also start a new community with three of the survivors from your last community (complete with the equipment they had on them when your last game ended), should you not be done scavenging and slaying zombies in State of Decay 2.
That’s basically all there is to know to beat State of Decay 2. If you’re looking for more tips, tricks, or guides on the game, be sure to check out our comprehensive wiki.
