You have to be quick on your toes when it comes to taking down zombies, so let’s get started with our Left to Survive cheats, tips and tricks strategy guide!

Take out the Special Zombies first!

Special zombies pose a higher threat as they come loaded with some kind of unique ability. Fast zombies can sprint at you, closing the distance much faster. Exploders will self-destruct if they get close enough and will inflict massive damage! Needless to say, that is very bad so try to prioritize the special zombies first.

Use short bursts for more headshots!

The number one golden rule for dealing with zombies is to always aim for the head. Headshots deal double damage to zombies, decimating them much faster. You also get a cash bonus at the end of the level depending on how many headshots you nail.

If you are using an automatic weapon, it is best to fire in bursts. The longer you hold down the fire button, the more recoil you will suffer and thus be less accurate. Shooting in controlled bursts allows you to have much better accuracy, and it helps with landing headshots.

Build the Factory first!

Once you unlock the second set of building slots, you should prioritize building the Factory first. The Factory will generate material for you over time, the currency you need to create and upgrade buildings. Material is hard to come by from just the missions alone, which is why we recommend building the Factory.

Claim your Free Crates!

Every twenty minutes, you can open a crate from the shop for free. You can get helpful consumables like grenades, medkits, and machetes, but you can also get weapons, survivors, cash, and even gold. You can open a free crate five times a day but will have to wait twenty minutes between each crate.

PvP Tips!

  • When you are battling another player, remember that you can tap the arrows on the sides of the screen to move to different cover. Keep in mind that you can also stop at moment to start firing – but just remember that you are probably out of cover, so be careful! You can use this technique to surprise your opponent or pick at them from a different angle.
  • Shining red crates will periodically spawn around you. If you run them over, you will get a medkit or an extra grenade. Do not worry if you have hit your limit – you will temporarily be able to hold extra for the duration of the match. Use your grenades and medkits wisely, and grab some more if necessary!
  • Grenades can flush out stubborn opponents. If your enemy isn’t moving too much and or they’re trying to stay out of your line of sight, toss a grenade to force them out. They will either have to move or suffer big damage.
