Infection Free Zone is a unique zombie survival game, in which you guide a group of people in the postapocalyptic reality. The novelty is that you can pick any place in the world and even a building. It means that your headquarters may be at your home. No wonder that many people have become interested in this title. If you are one of them, we are here to help you. Learn some tips on how to not die quickly.

Infection Free Zone Guide – Tips for Beginners


Location is so important that we had to prepare a separate paragraph for that. Starting place is probably one of the most crucial decisions, so you should not jump straight away to your home (we know that you will). There are a few important factors to take into consideration:

  1. Wood – at the beginning wood is quite important, and having a supply of trees close to you can be quite beneficial.
  2. Starting building – while the game warns you that HQ has a fixed maximum storage/citizen capacity, bigger structures have more space than smaller ones.
  3. Free place – soon, you will have to create fields. They require some open terrain. Of course, you can always destroy the neighboring houses, but it takes a lot of time and manpower. Having a plaza or playground next to you will make your life easier at the beginning.
  4. Special structures – the game recognizes buildings like shops, apothecaries, and police stations. What is more, they are a source of some useful items like guns, medicines, and food. If you build close to them, and loot them early on, you will have a free boost.
  5. Defense – at nights enemies roam the streets and will attack your buildings. It is a good idea to start the game in a spot, which is easy to protect.
  6. Remote locations – are bad because you need to adapt buildings. If there are no structures nearby, you will not be able to build Research Centers, Shelters or Warehouses close to each other, and it is important if you want to protect them properly.

Other useful tips

  1. Tutorial – if you are a new player, complete your first playthrough with a tutorial turned on. If you need more detailed hints regarding your task, just hover over the mission, and more detailed description will pop up.
  2. Guns – one of the most crucial resources. Early on, it may be difficult to get them. You can find them randomly, by scavenging buildings. However, your best chance is to visit some former facilities housing uniform forces like police and fire stations.
  3. Proper scavenging – while you can find useful resources anywhere, prioritize special buildings, as they have the biggest chance to drop the most precious resources.
  4. V – it is your best friend, as this key shows resources over the buildings and thanks to that, you can quickly locate special structures with higher chance for better loot.
  5. Structure adaptation – you can create some small buildings yourself, but most of your facilities will be adapted from existing structures. In the case of big ones, the cost of modernization can be quite substantial. It is good to know that you can take only part of the building, not the whole. Just hold the mouse button.
  6. Night – when darkness comes, zombies roam the maps. It is quite dangerous. Try to keep your people in the safe place during these long hours. It does not mean that you should stop scavenging at all but remember about the risk and make decisions accordingly.
  7. Weather – it influences many factors, like farms or zombies. You should keep that in mind. For example, during a full moon, zombies are docile like during the day. Use it, to plan far away scavenging missions. However, it works also in other way around. Beware of a really cloudy days, as enemies can attack you even throughout daytime.
