Upgrade Your Base

To ward off zombies, be sure to upgrade your base in Zombie Gunship Survival. 

Despite its namesake, Zombie Gunship Survival is about more than taking down zombie foes. In Zombie Gunship Survival, knowing how to upgrade your base will help you survive. Every few hours, zombies will come and attack your base, forcing you to fend them off. Your base is important for a number of reasons, and is comprised of the Headquarters, Armory, Hangar, as well as the Metal and Supply Storage buildings.

To prevent zombies from reaching your Headquarters and Hangar, you’ll need to use Supplies to upgrade the defenses of your base. Base upgrades include walls, mortar towers, and other defensive structures designed to ward off hordes of zombies. When it comes to the upgrade process, you’ll want to upgrade your Headquarters first in order to begin the process of unlocking new buildings. Additionally, make sure you repair all of your buildings as frequently as possible in order to maintain your base’s defense.

Aside from the Headquarters and Hangar, you can rearrange buildings and organize your base in order to better protect your core facilities. To move a building, tap and hold the building you want to move until it becomes moveable. Keep in mind that zombie-infested oaks and hazardous wastes cannot be moved. Additionally, keep an eye on the zombie spawn nodes, as these indicate the directions the zombies will attack from.

Once you notice where the zombie spawn nodes are, you can then build barricades and towers along the zombie’s path to slow their advances in Zombie Gunship Survival.

Fuse and Improve Weapons

Remember to fuse and improve weapons in Zombie Gunship Survival.

Another key to success in Zombie Gunship Survival is using powerful weapons. This will not only help you protect your base, but your allies on the ground as well. To improve the traits of your weapons and make them more powerful in Zombie Gunship Survival, you’ll need to boost and fuse your weapons.

Once you improve certain weapons in Zombie Gunship Survival, you can scrap the weapons you no longer need for resources. Boosting a gunship or soldier weapon requires the use of Metals and Screws, which can be obtained by completing missions and objectives, or by scavenging resources in Zombie Gunship Survival.

How to Complete Missions and Objectives

You can earn resources by completing missions and objectives in Zombie Gunship Survival.

To earn the resources vital to upgrading your base and weapons, you’ll need to know how to complete missions and objectives in Zombie Gunship Survival. In the game, there are daily missions as well as standard objectives that can be completed to earn XP and resources.

Note that these objective rewards are not given out automatically, meaning that you’ll need to manually check the objectives tap after completion to collect your rewards. Because of this, you’ll want to regularly check the objectives tab to ensure you receive all of your completion rewards in Zombie Gunship Survival.

How to Scavenge for Resources

Be sure to provide cover support for your troops while scavenging for resources in Zombie Gunship Survival.

While you’re defending your base from zombies and upgrading your weapons, you’ll want to take the time to scavenge for resources in Zombie Gunship Survival. In the game’s Scavenging Mode, the goal is to have your soldiers look multiple buildings within a given time frame, thus garnering useful resources.

While allied troops loot buildings on the ground, you’ll need to provide cover support using the titular gunship. Be sure to equip your soldiers with weapons that have loot bonuses. This will allow them to collect resources faster while looting. At the beginning of a scavenger mission, players can choose where to drop their soldiers.

Upon doing so, you’ll want to provide cover fire for your ground troops to keep them safe from zombies, and move between buildings easier. Using fire from the gunship will ensure your soldiers can gather as many resources as possible in Zombie Gunship Survival.

Open Crates

You can earn new weapons for your gunship by opening Crates in Zombie Gunship Survival.

Another important component in Zombie Gunship Survival is the process of opening Crates. Crates are earned by completing various activities in the game, and are the best way to earn new weapons for your gunship and soldiers. Keep in mind that Crate space is limited, so you’re limited to the amount of Crates you can store at one time.

Because of this, you’ll want to unlock Crates on a regular basis so that you can continue earning more while playing Zombie Gunship Survival. Ways to earn Crates including watching video ads, completing battle objectives, and by using currency. However, Crates are typically easy to learn, so you shouldn’t waste your currency trying to purchase them unless you absolutely have to.
