The overall capacity of a car is one of the most important factors to consider when choosing a car in State of Decay 2. Your characters won’t be able to carry much, so a decent trunk size will greatly increase your potential loot efficiency. Always try to find a car with the maximum boot size. In this guide, we will walk you through how the car storage system works in State of Decay 2, as well as give you a list of the best cars in the game based on trunk capacity.
Car trunk capacity
Each car has a trunk that can act as a mobile storage for various things and items. The smallest trunk has only 4 slots, while the largest can have up to 8 slots. You will use it as a sort of mobile home to store all your loot. This way you will be able to empty your pockets and continue collecting loot without having to return to your base to unload.
One of the most important aspects of this is backpacks. You can only take one with you at a time. Its capacity depends on the quality of the bag itself, but you will always be bound to only one. At the same time, car storage has no such restrictions. You can fill each trunk slot with a separate backpack, which will make your car simply indispensable while searching and collecting items and materials.
Which car has the largest trunk?
The undisputed winners in this category are the minibus and the repair vehicle. Both have 8 storage slots, but only 2 doors each. In addition, they are not the strongest, and you need to manage them carefully, avoiding large crowds.
If you lower your requirements a little and look for cars with 6 storage slots, then the choice will expand noticeably. The best option would be a military pickup truck, which is equipped with 4 doors and has a fully reinforced body structure, which allows you to use this vehicle as a separate type of weapon. Next comes a pickup truck equipped with a snow scraper. Although its body is unarmored, the scraper allows you to sweep annoying zombies out of the way in no time. In addition, there is an ambulance, a Desperado Jeep, a Norma, a Pilato, a Rhames pickup truck, and a Vagabond SUV – all of which have 6 slots, but are not as sturdy as the first two.
How to move things and backpacks from the trunk to your base?
If you’ve played the previous State of Decay game, you’ll notice that there’s no way to automatically move items from the trunk to the base’s storage. Instead, you need to park your car in a designated area, then open the trunk and select the desired item. If you are using a joystick, press the right trigger button. If you play with the keyboard – press T.
