As a player in this game, it is important to be aware of the signs and symptoms of infection, as well as the steps you can take to prevent and combat it.
One of the most obvious symptoms of infection is feeling constantly hot, even when your character is naked. This is accompanied by increased thirst levels, nausea, depression, and overall body damage. These symptoms may occur after a zombie bite and are a sign that your character is becoming infected.
The only way to combat the infection is to go to sandbox mode and set it so that the infection only transfers through saliva. However, it is important to note that once a character is infected, the chances of survival are very slim.
The chances of infection from different types of wounds vary. Scrapes have a 7% chance of infection, lacerations have a 20-25% chance, and bites have a 95-100% chance of infection. This means that bites pose the greatest risk of infection, and players should take extra precautions when dealing with zombies.
To prevent infection, players should take certain precautions such as bandaging up any wounds immediately. This will help to prevent the spread of infection and slow down the progression of the disease. Additionally, players should make a stash of supplies in case they need to start a new character. This includes antibiotics, food, and water, as well as any other items that will help them to survive.
If a player’s character is infected with a disease, they should take antibiotics if they have them and try to stay comfortable to help their body recover more quickly. They should also keep their character well-fed.
If a player’s character is infected with the zombies virus, they should bandage up any wounds, make a stash of supplies to last for a few days, try to find a safe place to hunker down and wait out the infection. As a last act of heroism, they can try to lead zombies away from other survivors. However, it is important to remember that once you are infected, the chances of survival are very slim.
In summary, infection is a serious threat in this game, and players should take all necessary precautions to prevent it. This includes bandaging wounds immediately, making a stash of supplies, and staying aware of the signs and symptoms of infection. If a player’s character does become infected, they should take antibiotics if they have them, try to stay comfortable, and keep their character well-fed. In the case of the zombie virus, they should also try to find a safe place to hunker down and wait out the infection.
