Influence points are one of the main currencies in State of Decay 2. They are used for almost everything from building a base and upgrading equipment to dealing with special merchants. You will earn these points as you play. At the same time, the more actively you play, the more you earn. However, getting them is not as easy as it seems. If you want to get as many influence points as possible, then you will have to farm them. In this guide, we’ll show you how to do it.
How to earn influence
The best way to earn influence is to sell luxury items to merchants. For example, a bag of goodies can be sold for around 35 points. To achieve the maximum benefit, you need to have a reliable source of such goods. One good way to achieve this is to have an alembic at the base. He will constantly produce alcohol, and you will only have to regularly sell it.
For defeating the plague heart, you will immediately receive 100 points. The number of hearts on each map is limited, and it is quite difficult to overcome them. However, the reward for them is worth the effort. Just make sure you have a 50 caliber shotgun with you and enough Molotov cocktails on hand.
Helping survivors encountered in the wastelands is also rewarded with influence points. Not a very large amount, but over time you can accumulate a certain amount. In addition, such quests are usually relatively easy. You will also receive 5 to 15 points for killing special zombies. Therefore, try to deal with them first, and then the usual ones.
