Zombie Horde Attack in Last Day on Earth
Zombie Horde Attacks can be a huge pain in Last Day on Earth, especially at lower levels. You’ll constantly be building a base up, for a horde to just come through and destroy it all in an instant. You will spot an incoming horde attack by checking your map. Below, you can see that an attack will hit my base in 2 hours and 22 minutes.
There are a lot of things you can do to not waste time and ensure that each attack is successful by you. Horde attacks happen around every 24 hours, or at least they have to me so far. It’s unknown whether these mechanics will be changed in a future update. One tip displayed in game will mention that hordes are more likely to detect you if you do a lot of travelling by vehicle or running, so keep that in mind.
Zombies will only destroy your walls and doors. All furniture including chests, containers, furnaces and anything else is safe so don’t worry about your precious belongings!

How to survive the Horde attack
Save your supplies
Start saving everything you collect, including your wood, stone and other supplies. Build yourself a basic shelter to put your chests in. Don’t bother upgrading the walls until your ready to survive an attack. The biggest mistake I made was upgrading all of my walls to the next level, to only have them destroyed by the horde. It cost me A LOT of wood planks and stone. I’d suggest upgrading your walls when you have a lot of traps in place.
Consider logging out
When the horde attack is imminent, consider exiting Last Day on Earth. Zombies wont be able to smell or detect you, so there is a higher chance of them avoiding your base. It’s simply not worth trying to fight the horde at lower levels, and unless you want to admire the view, log out! If you want to see what a zombie horde looks like, look below..
Set up traps
One of the first set of traps available to you in Last Day on Earth will be spikes. They take a while to make, as they require 10 rope each (which is a lot). Make sure you know how to collect large amounts of rope. Wrap your base in spike traps if possible, this will at least prevent most of the damage and kill the zombies before they can break down your walls. Be careful though, your own spike traps can damage you for 10HP per hit if you’re too close!
Make use of your time
The last bit of advice I can offer is to make good use of your time. If you see that you have 20 hours until an incoming horde attack, go out and gather enough materials to set up traps. Keep fixing up the walls that have been destroyed and it will all be okay. Last Day on Earth can be brutal, and I can only see it getting even more in upcoming updates.
