One of the most important things in any survival game is having a safe and secure place to call home. In project zomboid, one way to do this is by building wooden walls. Wooden walls are a cheap and effective way to fortify a structure or create obstacles against zombies. They provide shelter and can be used to expand an existing shelter.
To build a wooden wall, you will first need to create a wooden frame. To do this, you will need to have carpentry level 2, 2 planks, and 2 nails. Equipping a hammer and right-clicking on the floor will bring up the “Carpentry” menu. From there, select “Wall” and then “Wooden Wall Frame” to create the frame on the ground.
Once you have a wooden frame, you can upgrade it to a wall by having a hammer, 4 nails, and 2 wooden planks in your inventory. Right-clicking on the frame and selecting “Upgrade to Wooden Wall Lvl 1” will turn the frame into a level 1 wooden wall.
Upgrading the wall to higher levels will require more planks and nails. The cost and health of the wall increases with each level. To upgrade from Level 1 to Level 2 or Level 2 to Level 3, you will need 1 plank and 4 nails. To upgrade the wall, right-click on it and select “Upgrade to Wooden Wall Lvl x,” where x is the desired level.
The different levels of wooden walls and their costs are as follows:
|Wall Level||Cost (Planks)||Cost (Nails)||Health||Carpentry Level|
Wooden walls are a great way to keep zombies out and give you time to either engage them or flee. They break the line of sight and act as a barrier, making them useful for hiding from zombies and escaping. Fortified windows and doors can also help keep zombies out of your home, but they will still try to break through if they see you. To create an impenetrable barrier, surround your base with fences.
If you need to gather a lot of wood quickly, the best method is to get a car with a large trunk, a saw, and a fire axe or wood axe. Drive out to a forest, cut down trees, saw the logs into planks, and load them into the trunk. Repeat as needed.
To destroy a wall, you can use a sledgehammer. Just be aware that this will also destroy any fortified windows or doors that are attached to the wall.
In summary, building wooden walls in project zomboid is a cheap and effective way to fortify a structure and protect yourself from zombies. With the right tools and resources, you can create a safe and secure home for yourself and your group.
