The spear is one of the weapons a player may craft in Project Zomboid. The spear is regarded as one of the game’s greatest weapons because of its effectiveness against zombies. Zombies may be readily killed by charging with a spear.
How good the spear is and how much damage it can do depend on how good the player is at Carpentry. Spear blades made at level 1 of Carpentry tend to break easily. Through the crafting menu, the player can add more blades to the end of the spear. The player can also use the spear for fishing, and the quality of the fish caught depends on the player’s Fishing skill.
HOW DO YOU CHARGE A SPEAR IN PROJECT ZOMBOID?
Each spear has a special spear charge attack that may be used against an opponent. After a few seconds of sprinting, the player will start a spear charge, and any zombie on the receiving end will be slain in one strike. To activate this skill, you must sprint. Since your character is exposed during the kill animation, spear charges are best employed against lone zombies rather than groups. Other dangers include arousing the attention of neighboring zombies, making it harder for your character to turn around when sprinting, and maybe even your character falling over if they run into a wall.
HOW TO STAB WITH A SPEAR?
A spear is a kind of weapon that is long and pointed, and it may be used to stab. Because of its long range and its ability to pierce through chain-link fences, it is the ideal weapon for a character playing the underdog role. The spear is the only reliable weapon that can kill a zombie before it can launch an attack on you.
To get the most out of a spear, it’s preferable to have it in each hand and a backup one attached to your back. So when one of your spears breaks, you’ll be able to quickly swap to a new one.
Also, having a few more spares is a good idea since spears are so delicate. Attaching a stabbing weapon to a spear using duct tape may make it more robust, and if you have good carpentry skills, you can make it even more so. Zombies can be killed from a distance with a spear and won’t become stuck into a zombie’s head like knives.
Attaching other weapons to the spears can make them last longer, do more damage, and reach farther. This makes spears a better choice than other weapons like machetes, which are harder to fix. Since spears are usually easy and cheap to make, it is often better to create a new spear than to fix an old one. This is very true if the spear is badly broken.
FISHING ROD VS. SPEAR
Spears are great for killing zombies from a distance. You can also catch a hearty meal with a spear. Any spear you make can be used to fish in water, just like a fishing rod.
When fishing in Project Zomboid, you can equip a spear to your character and go to the nearest body of water. To begin fishing, access the action menu by right-clicking the water and selecting the option “Fishing.” Select the bag where you want to place the fish and hit the OK button. Keep an eye out for anything that your character may catch.
But one thing to remember is that you are likelier to catch fish using a fishing rod as you can’t put anything on the spear as bait.
THE DIFFERENT TYPES OF SPEARS THAT CAN BE CRAFTED IN PROJECT ZOMBOID
Players in Project Zomboid can make their own spears by going to the Survivalist tab and choosing the Create spear option.
THE PROS AND CONS OF USING A SPEAR AS A WEAPON
The basic spear may be made from almost nothing, so you won’t have to spend time and resources fixing it. The spear’s broad reach makes it ideal for fending off zombies from a distance. It is also more potent since it has a charge ability. A spear’s advantages over other weapons include the ability to kill a zombie at a distance and the fact that it won’t get stuck in its head as a knife would. A spear’s limited durability as a weapon and the risk of switching to a broken spear in the middle of a battle are drawbacks.
