Making a Zombie item.pngzombie is unlocked relatively early in the game by completing a series of short missions and unlocking the right technologies. You first have to meet Gunter and do his bidding.

Things zombies can do[edit | edit source]

You need to unlock the related technology and build the right station for zombies to do the following:

Creating a zombie[edit | edit source]

You may salvage one Zombie item.pngzombie at the beginning, but you can also make your own on a resurrection table by using 1x
zombie juice
on a Corpse item.pngcorpse and 10x
. To put a Zombie item.pngzombie to work, simply carry it to the station where you want it to work and place it down when prompted. It's important to note that you cannot create a zombie without an Alchemy workbench (tier I), which is impossible to get early game.

Improving a zombie[edit | edit source]

Zombie item.pngzombies have a stat called "Work Efficiency" that represents how effective their work generally is. This stat directly relates to the number of White Skull skulls, while Red Skull skulls will have no effect. One can modify a zombie much like a regular corpse, as many times as is necessary, either by autopsy at the preparation place or injections at the embalming table.

Efficiency is compared to the player crafting speed. For example a task that take 2s if done by the player will take 20s for a 10% efficiency zombie.

Efficiency doesn't have any impact on transport speed.

Skulls Efficiency Skulls Efficiency Skulls Efficiency Skulls Efficiency
0/1 White Skull 2% 5 White Skull 12% 9 White Skull 22% 13 White Skull 32%
2 White Skull 5% 6 White Skull 15% 10 White Skull 25% 14 White Skull 35%
3 White Skull 8% 7 White Skull 18% 11 White Skull 28% 15 White Skull 38%
4 White Skull 10% 8 White Skull 20% 12 White Skull 30% 16 White Skull 40%

Maximum efficiency can be achieved by the following steps:

There is also a guide to preparing 12 skull corpses.

The order in which these steps are applied does not matter, although you will not be able to apply
silver injection
gold injection
, if the corpse does not have at least 1 and 2 Red Skull respectively at the time. You can work around this by either temporarily replacing other organs or applying
dark injection

prayer for repose
can also be used to increase the chances of obtaining parts with +3 White Skull.
