Plaguehearts are one of the monsters in State of Decay 2. They create other zombies and can also infect you or others with Blood Plague. Defeating such enemies is quite difficult, but it is possible with proper planning and the right materials. You will need baits, explosives and some other equipment. Let’s take a closer look at how you can kill plague hearts in State of Decay 2.
How to kill plague hearts in State of Decay 2?
To kill a Plague Heart, you’ll need powerful weapons, bait, vehicles, and cover. To destroy this enemy, you will have to try very hard, because they can endure a fairly large amount of damage received and are able to call on hordes of zombies to help. In addition to this, each subsequent heart is more difficult than the previous one. So, let’s move on to the story of how we were able to destroy the plague hearts.
First of all, preparation. Complete the missions you receive on the radio. Wait for the quest where two more join you. From now on, you can go to any place you like to clean up plague hearts with two assistants. You don’t have to complete their quest. Make sure you get them both into a vehicle that has enough room for everyone. In terms of weapons, you will need bombs and Molotov cocktails. And a lot. Any powerful weapon will also be useful (50 caliber is a real monster that can sometimes kill a plague heart with three shots). Finally, you will need baits. Firecrackers, fireworks, boomboxes, whatever you have.
Now let’s move on to the fight itself. Together with the two survivors that you picked up earlier, approach the plague heart in a car. Use decoys to get rid of the zombies. Let your NPCs take care of them. Throw Molotov cocktails and bombs at the plague heart (you can wait until the flame goes out before throwing the next one). When the heart calls for help, let them get closer, and then use another bait to send them in the other direction. If you want to get rid of them easily, then wait until they all gather near the bait, and then run over them with your car.
When the game lets you know that the plague heart is almost killed, you can simply finish it off with any melee weapon. It is worth noting that if you have a powerful weapon, you can save a few Molotov cocktails. It’s up to you. Make sure you don’t get bitten by zombies at all times and that you don’t step on a cloud of gas emitted by the heart, because this will increase the rate of infection very quickly.
