How to play Last Days of Humanity: Tips & Survival Guide
From the moment you spawn, you'll be fighting for your life in this hardcore modpack. You're most likely to spawn in a location already surrounded by lots of zombies, so be ready to run for your life. We recommend looking for a shelter as soon as you spawn. Luckily there'll be plenty of structures, houses, and castles you can take shelter. But also be ready to deal with a few zombies inside the houses as there will be some trapped in.
Next, you'll need a proper weapon. Yes, you can punch zombies and some other parasitic organisms away, but it'll take a lot of time, and you'll take damage as well. You can craft your weapons or even find them in loots you'll find inside houses and structures.
In some buildings, especially tall and big ones, you'll find survivors that you can team up with. Think of them as villagers that are armed and will join you to defeat faster zombies. Consider making one of these big buildings your survival base, as they'll be harder to penetrate during parasite raids.
