How to barricade a window in Project Zomboid
To barricade a window in Project Zomboid, you will need a hammer, some planks, and some nails. To do this, right-click on the window and click “barricade (planks)” Your character will then pull out the planks and start nailing them into the window. You can do this up to four times. Keep in mind that each time you barricade a window, you will use up some of the resources (planks and nails).
You can barricade both sides of the window(double protect)!
Master beds are the big ones that give you the most planks, nails, and experience.
It is important of considering which part of the structure will be used as an entrance, before placing barricades. On buildings with second-story windows, We suggest using sheet ropes as a useful entrance that can’t be used by zombies. This allows all of the ground floor doors and windows to be fully secured.
The different types of barricades
|Metal sheets||High level of protection||Can’t be seen through|
|Wooden boards||Can be seen through||Weaker than metal sheets|
|Metal bars||Can be seen through||Provide the same level of protection as a metal sheet|
The different materials that can be used to create a barricade
|Wooden boards||Hammer||Wooden Plank * 1–4, Nails * 2|
|Metal sheets||Propane Torch, Welder Mask||Metal Sheet * 1|
|Metal bars||Propane Torch, Welder Mask||Metal Bar * 3|
How to remove a barricade
To remove a barricade that has been put in place, the player must have the same tool that was used to create the barricade. If they do not have that tool, a crowbar can be used instead.
Right-click on the barricades and click “Unbarricade.” When the barricade is removed, any metal sheets, bars, or wooden planks are retrieved but nails are lost.
Why you should barricade windows in Project Zomboid
In Project Zomboid, it is important to barricade windows. Barricades prevent entry or exit for both the player and zombies.
Zombies take longer to break down a door that is protected by a barricade, and windows are much less likely to shatter if they are reinforced with a barricade. The material you use for your barricade will determine how strong it is.
How to barricade your safe house effectively
If you want to effectively barricade your safe house, it is important to choose a building with multiple exits and few windows. This will spread out the zombies and make them easier to defend. You should also aim for a building with a door that faces a safe side. If you think the front door or another door is likely to be attacked, you can barricade it.
The importance of having multiple exits in your safe house
It is important that have multiple exits in your safe house in case of a zombie attack. You should always aim for a multiple-exit building with two to three exits. This will give you more time to respond if zombies are attacking.
In the event of a zombie outbreak, you need to be able to quickly and easily get out of your safe house if it becomes compromised. Otherwise, you run the risk of being trapped inside with no way out.
Using walls to barricade door frames and windows
To keep door frames and windows safe from hordes of zombies, it is recommended that walls be used to barricade them.
Furniture as barricades in your safe house
Furniture can be used to barricade doors and windows in a safe house, providing some measure of protection against zombies while still allowing occupants to be aware of their surroundings.
