Last Day on Earth Survival is one of the most exciting games available for mobile. You need to survive in a desolate land, without resources and having to face deadly enemies. That's why the game is also super difficult. With that in mind, we created this article to help you build your defenses and survive for years to come!

1. Worry about finding food

Food is your main concern throughout the game!

Without food you won't get far. Only by eating regularly can you stay healthy. In the game there are good options to acquire food. The fastest and most dangerous is by killing wolves and collecting their meat. However, in the beginning it will be difficult to survive many clashes.



So focus on planting first. Plant seeds, which will turn into carrots within minutes of being in the ground. Each carrot gives 25 hunger points and increases 15 HP. The advantage is that it can be eaten raw! If you want and can, cook the carrots to gain 5 extra life points.

The third method of eating is to hunt for food. In this case, deer. But be careful! You need tactics and strategy. If you run after the animal, it will run away and lead you to attract zombies or other dangerous wild animals. The best, therefore, is to use stealth. With a knife, approach from behind the animal without it seeing and give it a dry blow.

2. Recycle whenever possible

Many items are only available when you consume others. It is only possible to obtain a bottle of water after drinking an entire bottle of water. It's the same with cans! In the case of bottles, it is really important that you do not throw them away after drinking their contents.



With these objects you can make a kind of rain capture. After a while, you will have rainwater to drink if you know how to be patient. Anyway, it's worth discovering the uses of all the items in the game.

3. Get ready for the daily horde of zombies

It's inevitable: every day, every 24 hours, your base will be attacked by a horde of zombies. If you don't prepare your defenses well, you will see your walls being destroyed at some points. That's if you have walls! If not, anything in your shelter could be destroyed.

So try to act during your time to build and improve defenses. You don't want to see all your work go down the drain after the creatures attack.

If you are completely unprepared to face the zombies, a suggestion is to stay on the map screen during the attack. This will make sure you don't die, just having to rebuild everything that was lost.

4. Use pockets for more inventory space

One thing Last Day on Earth: Survival doesn't tell you is that you don't have to put everything in your backpack. In fact, you can't even do that, since the space of this object is very small. A quick and practical alternative is to put the items in the pockets. In the pockets you have 8 spaces, which allows you to collect objects or even food to take to the shelter.

5. Pause the game so you don't die of hunger or thirst

Unfortunately, you won't always have water at your disposal...

Yes, we know you can't pause Last Day on Earth: Survival. But another thing that the game doesn't tell you is that the map screen serves as a pause, preventing the hunger and thirst bars from constantly going down. This is important, as whenever you are playing you will have to pay attention to these two bars.



6. Go to Base Alpha only after fortifying your shelter

Alpha Base is your best chance to get good weapons early in the game. Going there is essential, but only if you have your shelter fortified against invasions. And not only that: your own avatar needs to be well prepared.

So take it easy and make sure your defenses are in place. When you leave to go to the Base, check that your character is minimally armed and has food to recover health. On the way to the Alpha, you will surely encounter zombies and you will have to defend yourself.

7. Have a strategy to attack the zombies

Zombies are strong and take a lot of damage. Still, you don't have any intelligence, which makes you a far superior being. So when attacking them, as it will eventually happen, make sure you use the right approach!

The secret is to be stealthy. Always attack from behind, trying to choose enemies that are alone or in very small groups. Not being seen makes your life much easier. If this is not possible, be assured that you can use a firearm to defend yourself.


Using the firearm, don't just shoot wildly around. Try to control your nervous finger so you don't waste ammo. In fact, this is even easier if, again, you select your zombies well. The ideal is to face one at a time. Hordes are always the recipe for dying.

8. Build the house the right way

Have a functional home so you don't waste resources for nothing!

Building the house, of course, is one of the most important aspects of the game. Without it you won't survive an hour in the game. When building it, make sure you have enough resources. It is not in your best interest to have it halfway or without a door.


A house without a door is a waste of time. Even a simple door can only be destroyed by C4 explosives, so don't hesitate to have one! This will prevent zombies and other human characters from invading your residence, stealing precious items.

In terms of size, make a 3x3 house. Small but ideal for beginners. Make sure you have a fire pit, a small box to store items, and a bed. That's all you need to start the game well and safely.

Remember that the small box only holds 12 items securely. If you need more space, a tip is to go to the truck at the beginning of the game to store more valuable objects.
