State of Decay 2 - Achievement guide & roadmap

Guide & roadmap

A game of mostly objective/grind achievements with nothing really missable in the normal sense of the word. The grind isn't even too bad (the longest will be Others and Wights for killing 10k zombies).

There is coop multiplayer, but you can do all achievments solo or coop - its up to you.

But, unless you manipulate saves, 4 playthroughs are necessary to get each of the legacy achievements (Be Still My Dog of War, I Am the Law, etc). You could do this in one playthrough by levelling up 4 characters (one of each type) beforehand, saving before electing one as leader and then going through the election, plague heart killing and legacy missions for each character.

Some general tips: - carry a can of fuel in the car when driving around - be sure to collect every Plague Sample you find - invest in being able to repair things (i.e. your weapons!)

Leader legacies: - Sheriff: Loot received daily - Trader: 4000 influence and a trader visit when you first settle - Builder: Base-wide power+water with no fuel cost or threat - Warlord: large stockpile of weapons/ammo when you first settle

After electing a sheriff (see Nice Moves There), kill any remaining plague hearts in your territory and new quests for the sheriff should unlock; complete these to leave your legacy!

Note must be done in a separate playthrough to the other legacy achievements.

Dam Fine Territory

You settled your community in the foothills territory.

This div will be opened in a lightbox achievement-lightbox-r407692310

After the tutorial mission you choose a settlement - once you arrive there and claim it the achievement will pop. You'll need to do this in a separate playthrough to Ten Thousand Gallon Hat and Tilting at Windmills

Ten Thousand Gallon Hat

You settled your community in the plateau territory.

This div will be opened in a lightbox achievement-lightbox-r997546786

After the tutorial mission you choose a settlement - once you arrive there and claim it the achievement will pop. You'll need to do this in a separate playthrough to Dam Fine Territory and Tilting at Windmills

Toothpaste PiƱatas

This div will be opened in a lightbox achievement-lightbox-r142518016

I Got You a Pack Mule

You delivered a whopping 50 rucksacks to your Storage facility.

This div will be opened in a lightbox achievement-lightbox-r214326032

You have to manually deliver each one to the area marked. Directly transferring from your vehicle's trunk does not count!

Paradise City

You built 10 facilities at your base over time.

This div will be opened in a lightbox achievement-lightbox-r390536843

You'll likely have to be on your third base to get this far - to efficiently progress the rest of the game you won't want to be tearing facilities down and build new ones just to grind this out.

These Dreams

You destroyed 5 plague hearts. Gross.

This div will be opened in a lightbox achievement-lightbox-r366775435

They get progressively harder as you kill more, and you'll have to kill all of them in a territory to be able to complete a playthrough. Take fire, explosive and fire. And guns. Melee weaps are not useful here!

Through a Glass Darkly

You surveyed 5 sites from high places.

Silent Cartographer

You surveyed 50 sites from high places.

This div will be opened in a lightbox achievement-lightbox-r715175725

Look on your map for binocular symbols; these indicate billboards and radio towers. Go to them, climb them, use the aim button to look. you'll see question marks for distant places of interest; stare at them to survey/unlock.

You'll need a few towers to get all 50. This is another easy grind :)

This div will be opened in a lightbox achievement-lightbox-r325580833

One of your people just needs to die. Any one. Just take them out (ideally with an empty backpack so you don't have to go retrieve their stuff), find zombies and let them kill you. Job done.

This div will be opened in a lightbox achievement-lightbox-r881406271
