Last Day on Earth Survival: Overview

Imagine you woke up to the apocalypse, the world as you know is gone. Earth is infested with zombies of all shapes and sizes. Now imagine when you woke up all you have with you is a pair of underwear in the middle of nowhere. You wake up to a post-apocalyptic earth where hordes of zombie’s thirst for hunger is not your only problem.

The last remaining humans are not all as friendly and united as you could imagine. Most survivors won’t hesitate to take you out of the picture to ensure their survival and raise to the top of the food chain. Being dropped straight into survival mode you must adapt and move fast, or you will become a nice, tasty snack for some mindless zombie.

There is plenty RPG survival, base builder post-apocalyptic games out there available on mobile and last Day on Earth Survival is arguably one of the best. Winning Google Plays most innovative game award 2017 and Google Plays users’ choice nominee 2018, Kefir must be truly proud of this game and still to this day has tons of people playing it.

 So, lets deep dive into the game and find out what its all about and if you’d commit to spending time fighting off hordes of zombies and grinding to expand your personal empire in the apocalyptic times.

The Basics

Collect resources, Craft and Survive. Most of the games content revolves around just that, building your character and base. Levelling your character will unlock new blueprints to craft workbenches, weapons and even luxuries in the zombie apocalypse like Zombie trucks and helicopters. Oh, let’s not forget couches and dining room tables.

As you level up you too will have to choose between different skills, such as extra health, resistance to the cold, lock picking and so much more. One thing I personally enjoy is the weapon modification, unlocking blueprints found in loot boxes you learn to upgrade your standard weapons not only for more damage but style too.

Another cool feature is the ability to have and breed pets to guard your house or even travel and run missions with you at your side.

There’s hunger, hydration, and hygiene to manage. However, it’s nice that once you pass the beginning stage of the game this becomes very easy to do.

Locations and Monsters

Forests, Police Station, Labourites, Spooky Farm, Shipping Ports, motels, and different level Bunkers packed with zombies, raiders, and other random characters. Each place is unique in its own was and houses its own unique set of resources.

Forests obviously are farmed for wood, the mountains areas are farmed for stone and ore. Areas like bunkers and motels are farmed for blueprints and weapons. Locations have a certain threat level indicated above it, this means the difficulty level of that area.

The difficult or threat means the lower or higher tier zombies in that given area, as well as the number of random AI survivors that might pay you a visit.

There are only a few boss creatures and a handful of lower tier zombies, so, the number of locations and variety of monsters can be a bit limited when compared to traditional single player action RPGs.

However, the randomly generated resource locations keep looting fresh and exciting.

One tip for early game survivors, Don’t and I repeat don’t go to the red zones stick to the green and yellow zones until you are comfortable and geared. Oh, I nearly forgot if you see the ground shaking…. RUUUN!! And leave that zone. It means the BIG ONE (a huge and extremely difficult zombie to kill) is on its way to you and you will be trampled and turned into a human pancake.


Assemble a fast Chopper, an ATV, or a motorboat and get access to remote locations on the map. You don’t get the rarest resources for complex blueprints and unique quests for nothing.

Your first major form of transport you’ll need to finish is the Chopper.

The Daily Grind

Energy System
The game runs on an energy system. Energy can be spent for quickly traveling to locations. However even without this energy your character can make their travels, it just takes longer.

Now on this note, generally you will find a healer outside your base that give you an option between three different buffs. On many occasions he will give you the option to fully restore your energy after watching an Ad.

So don’t be afraid to spend a lot of energy running around in exchange to watch a 30 second advert.

Bunkers are basically your “dungeons” in Last Day on Earth Survival, with high amounts of zombies. Players will spend a considerable amount of time grinding these Bunkers for experience, weapons and tickets or blueprints (Bunkers periodically reset).

Tickets can be traded for chests. Chests are a primary source of high tier equipment and weapons.

Complete a series of tasks for the opportunity to attack a npc base for loot. This is a great way for collecting weapons and rare resources that you don’t always find out in the resource farming zones.

General Resources

Grinding, grinding and lots more of it. You will visit these areas more than you’ll spend at your own base most likely. Due to the limited number of resources, you can hold you will go back and forth the farming zones to gather resources to constantly build up your base.

You’ll be surprised how much farming needs to be done just to maintain a constant flow of resources in your base or have your production line running smoothly for maximum efficiency.


  • Knowing how to engage combat and picking the worthwhile fights is what separates novice players from the more experienced.
  • The most important combat function of the game in my opinion, is the ability to crouch and sneak behind zombies. Landing that critical hit feels satisfying every time.
  • Wall tricking is another very useful trick in combat against zombies, it you are limited to how many weapons you have or don’t have enough healing at the time.
  • Your get ranged weapons like a bow and arrow, pistols or even an AK47. Melee weapons are to very useful and less expensive to make. The go to weapon early to mid-game is either the crowbar or machete. These are you most inexpensive weapons that deal a good amount of damage and are durable.
  • If you like cooperative play, visit the city in the Crater. This will come at a point in the game after a few hours of game play. There you’ll meet loyal companions and find out what you’re worth in PvP. Join a clan, play with other players and be part of the Last day on Earth Survival community.

Special events

  • Airdrops: Usually appears in the center of the zone, with lots of space to run around and generally low tier zombies around it. Airdrops are useful to get access to quick loot. This loot may not always be the best but its loot you didn’t have.
  • Crashed planes: A very rare event that can be so rewarding. Filled with loads of valuable loot ranging from gear, weapons, CAC cards, resources and first aid kits. When going to this event travel light, as you want to loot as much as you can. I recommend one weapon and a few bandages if need be. You generally don’t find many threats and if you do, they are generally all low tier zombies or grey wolves that can be easily dealt with.
  • Destroyed convoys: Are to a great was to get some extra loot, again its not always the best but you are able to get some armor and a weapon or two along with some decent resources that are needed to assemble certain things like the chopper. Most the zombies are low tier zombies.
  • However, there is always a frenzied giant right at the end of the convoy, in which you won’t survive with basic weapons you’ll need to shoot it if you are certain you want to kill it.  It can generally be avoided as the chest it protects normally has terrible loot, for example 2 bandages.

TIPS before becoming the apex zombie slayer

  • Avoid red zones all together until you are fully armored and have guns. As mentioned before the BIGONE will most likely kill you.
  • Kill all zombies in the farming zones then press the auto button and farm until there are no resources left in the area. (But always keep an eye out for AI survivors, most new players die way to often to them)
  • Keep a second weapon in you extra slot, in the event your main weapon breaks the second one will automatically replace it and you won’t have to fight zombies with your bare hands.
  • Always keep food or healing in your extra slot along with you second weapon. This allows you to heal fast and even during combat.
  • Always keep your eye on the minimap so you are not surprised by anything. Many people ignore it and find themselves in situation they could have avoided.
  • Try save your empty canned food for later as you will need them to finalize certain crafted things such as your dog crate, trip wire traps and most importantly, you can use them in the recycler to create aluminum bars.


Is it for you?
If you’re looking for a zombie survival game with a crafting and base building system Last Day on Earth is defiantly worth checking out.

The gameplay and progression system are enough to establish this game as a mid to long term keeper. There is so much that you can do and build and scavenge you can easily devote hours to it.

There is a great sense of satisfaction watching your base take shape, and it’s fun crafting things and growing your own food.

To start, there’s lots of repetitive gathering, but the auto-play button minimizes some of this.

Like many other free-to-play games, its strategy for making money relies on giving players a limited energy pool, and there are many micro-transactions you can make to progress faster. This micro-transaction can eat through your wallet faster than a frenzied horde of zombies at an all you can eat brains buffet.

However, you can still truly enjoy the game and progress well without spending a single cent. It will require some patience at points, but it is very doable.

I highly recommend this game to any survival or zombie enthusiasts.

And remember, always be ready.

Anything goes when it comes to survival!
