State of Survival is one of the most popular strategy games, combining a zombie apocalypse setting with simple yet very engaging strategy mechanics alongside RPG aspects and real-time combat, all wrapped in a neat little package. The game looks, plays, and feels amazing, especially with its attractive hand-drawn visuals and smooth animations. If you play it on BlueStacks, you can enjoy it to the fullest extent by cranking the framerate up to a solid 60 and leaving it there without any sort of interruptions or slowdowns, as well as by playing it on a larger screen and with mouse and keyboard support.

However, like many other strategy games on the market, State of Survival is quick to show its gameplay loop. After completing the first few chapters, you’ll instantly run into a progression wall in the form of timers and resource constraints. In other words, most of your constructions will either take a lot of time to complete or require tons of resources—or both. In this sense, if you want to maintain a constant progression, you’ll need to complete your daily tasks diligently. These missions will allow you to receive specific resources that are vital to your progression in many aspects.

In this guide, we’re going to give you a checklist of the daily things you should be doing in State of Survival in order to expedite your progression and outplay the competition.

Login Everyday

First and foremost, the most basic of daily tasks; simply login into the game and claim your sign-in rewards. You get different rewards every day, and these bonuses reset after the seventh day, starting over from day 1. If you break the cycle, however, you’ll be automatically reset back to step 1.

Since the best rewards are usually in the latter days of the sign-in rewards, you always want to claim them as the first thing you do as soon as you log in.

Daily Missions

The daily tasks in SoS are an important part of your progress, consisting of simple missions that you can complete in just a few minutes, but that reward you greatly for doing so. These missions can go from the most basic tasks such as signing in, performing one upgrade, and training troops, to helping your alliance mates, completing one explorer trail challenge, or killing infected on the world map, among many others.

Regardless of the type of mission, you should always try to complete them all as they will net you some sweet, sweet rewards. However, these rewards don’t come exactly from the missions themselves, rather than from when you reach certain activity milestones.

Every daily task grants a number of activity points, from as low as 5 points and up to 30 points, depending on the type of mission. When you reach certain milestones, you’ll get a chest with important loot, including even biocaps, the game’s premium currency. And if you complete ALL your daily tasks, you’ll even get a free Epic Search Map, which gives you the chance of rolling for the best heroes in the game, or at least for their upgrade materials.

If you’re limited on time and can’t sit down to play for a long session, your best bet would be to, at the very least, complete the daily missions as these are the ones that net you some of the best rewards.

Final Hope Transmissions

Your Intel Post is a source of missions and information about the game’s story. However, it’s also a cache of prizes that you can claim three times per day. These rewards are called “Final Hope Transmissions” and simply consist of an envelope with a small gift, which you can receive every few minutes in this building.

Though it’s not very significant, these rewards are completely free, so you might as well grab them whenever they’re available. To this end, we recommend putting your Intel Post somewhere you can always see it when the Final Hope Transmission icon pops up above it.

Alliance Donations

If you’re in a good alliance, one of the best ways you can contribute to its development is by donating resources to the Alliance Tech feature. Depending on the specific type of tech you’re developing, you can donate any of the main resources such as lumber, food, metal, or gas. If donating via this method, you’re limited to 25 donations per day—you should always try to donate as much as you can every day to help your alliance grow. Not to mention that donating to Alliance Tech is often one of the daily missions, so you’ll need to do it, anyway.

Hero Searches

Your Hero Precinct is your main source of heroes in State of Survival. This is where the game’s gacha system is located as most of the characters are unlocked via the randomized summoning system, called “Hero Search”. It’s also where you’ll find the Explorer Trail, the game’s single-player RPG mode.

There are two types of Hero Searches in State of Survival; Advanced Search, and Epic Search. You get 4 free rolls of the former every day, and 1 free roll of the latter every few days. This is also one of the most important things you should try to do on a daily basis as it’s one of the best ways to find new heroes, and to find fragments for upgrading the ones you’ve already unlocked.

Research and Construction

Though not technically a daily task, the development of your settlement is something you need to always keep in mind, but which becomes progressively more difficult to do so as you progress further in the game. This is because, while construction and research takes only a few moments and resources in the beginning, they can start taking entire days and hundreds of thousands of resources for a single upgrade. Regardless, whenever you save up enough for an upgrade, you should definitely go for it.

While there are definitely more things you can do every day in State of Survival, the 6 tasks we mentioned above are some of the most important. If at all possible, try to complete them all in order to progress as fast as possible in this awesome strategy game.
