How to become desensitized in project zomboid

Desensitization can be extremely useful in combat situations, as it allows the person to remain focused and accurate with their weapons. The “desensitized” trait is a beneficial trait to have when shooting guns, as it prevents the player from becoming panicked and losing accuracy. The different ways in which you can become desensitized are based on how long you play the game. The longer you play, the less your character will get panicked.

What is panic in Project Zomboid?

When a character in Project Zomboid becomes panicked, their accuracy and vision are both severely reduced. This can happen for several reasons, such as being exposed to large groups of zombies or having a zombie come into close proximity. In Project Zomboid, panic is a negative moodle that can debuff your character in four different stages. When panic sets in, it usually starts with a milder form of anxiety. However, if you’re constantly exposed to things that trigger your panic, it can gradually get stronger.

The effects of panic on accuracy and damage

At the “slight panic” level, the character is advised to do their best to remain calm. However, at the “panic” level, the character’s accuracy is reduced, and at the “strong panic” level, the character’s accuracy is severely reduced. At the “extreme panic” level, the character’s accuracy and vision are both severely reduced.

how to reduce the panic

If you want to reduce the panic your guy feels and improve his accuracy and damage output, have him take beta blockers before shooting. Beta-blockers help to reduce anxiety and improve focus, both of which are essential for accurate shooting.

The benefits of having the desensitized trait

The desensitized trait allows a person to remain calm and composed in situations where others would panic. This can be extremely useful in combat situations, as it allows the person to remain focused and accurate with their weapons.

Become Desensitized mod allows players to become desensitized to the game’s zombies after killing a certain number of them. This number is configurable through the game’s sandbox options. Once a player becomes desensitized, they will no longer be affected by certain mutually exclusive traits, such as cowardly, agoraphobic, claustrophobic, or hemophobic. The chance of becoming desensitized increases with each zombie kill and reaches 100% at 2000 kills. Certain traits and professions also affect the chance of becoming desensitized.
