The Ultimate State of Survival Hero Guide by BlueStacks

What is State of Survival?

State of Survival is basically a zombie game. However, instead of mindlessly making the undead’s head pop off, State of Survival focuses more on economy and how well you would manage a zombie apocalypse settlement.

There are currently 30 playable characters in State of Survival divided into three categories: Rare, Epic, and Resonating.

As a management game, there is nothing better than having an assistant do the work for you when it comes to handling your resources. Fret not, because BlueStacks is your perfect partner when playing State of Survival. BlueStacks’ Macros feature will give you the edge especially when it comes to farming. With the Macro Recorder( you can automate your gathering trips with the press of a button. By recording yourself doing the task manually once, you can use the resulting macro to streamline the process in every subsequent attempt.

Let us dive into all State of Survival characters — their choice of weapon and the benefits that you can get when they are in your party.

Rare

  • Rusty 

Weapon: Shotgun

Benefits: +15% Metal Gathering Speed 

Rusty’s backstory involves the Raiderz, a biker gang whom he disassociated himself with after a certain incident. The gang’s leader, Tombstone, placed a bounty on his head after his departure.

Resonating

  • Wacko

Released just this year, Wacko is a special character in State of Survival.

He is the very first Hero being introduced as a Resonating/Power-Sharing Hero, which means that he will not need to upgrade his level, skill level, Hero attributes, battle power, or his rank as he will be copying the stats of the Hero that is being Resonated/mirrored with him. 

The Ultimate State of Survival Hero Guide by BlueStacks

Wacko is a big fan of classic horror movies which explains his nickname. His real name is William Sawyer.

BlueStacks offers multiple features to help you kill zombies and build the best empire ruled by humans. BlueStacks can easily let you zoom in or zoom out of your headquarters, and you can also tap on to things with just a few keys and clicks.
