Survivors in Trouble are a type of Ambient Goals.

About Survivors in Trouble

Ambient Goals are usually short and easy missions which appear randomly. Ignoring or refusing them will not have any consequences, however some of them can reward you with valuable items, rucksacks, or new recruits if you complete them.

Survivor in Trouble missions task you with helping out survivors. They will reward you with rucksacks.

We gave unique names for each mission to make them more distinguishable, however in the game they're all called as Survivor in Trouble.

Arriving Late

A survivor calls for help through the radio. As you arrive to their location, you notice zombies around. A Freak will also be present at the location. As you fight the incoming zombies you notice that the person who presumably called for help is already reanimated. After you clear the location out, you can loot their body for some common items as a reward.

Your survivor's thoughts during the mission:

  • Clearing out the location: I'm too late. There's nobody left alive in here. I suppose I could look around for a body, see if they had anything interesting.

Under Attack (A)

A survivor calls for help through the radio. When you arrive, you see 2 survivors being attacked by zombies. After clearing the zeds out, the survivors might ask to join you. If not, they reward you with a rucksack of your choice (there'll be 3 types to choose from).

Under Attack (B)

A survivor calls for help through the radio. When you arrive, you see a survivor being attacked by zombies. After clearing them out, you will be rewarded with a rucksack. The mission ends afterwards and they'll leave the area.

Separated (A)

A survivor asks for help through the radio. As you arrive they tell you the following:

My friend and I got separated. There were too many zeds between us to go alone, can you help me find him?

  • You can refuse to help, thus cancelling the mission without any reward, or
  • you can agree to help.

If you agree, the survivor will start following you. When you arrive to the friend's location, there will be a lot of zombies attacking them. Saving the friend will earn you a rucksack of your choice (there'll be 3 types to choose from). The mission ends and they leave the area.

Separated (B)

A survivor asks for help through the radio. As you arrive they tell you the following:

My friend and I got separated. There were too many zeds between us to go alone, can you help me find him?

  • You can refuse to help, thus cancelling the mission without any reward, or
  • you can agree to help.

If you agree, the survivor will start following you. When you arrive to the friend's location, there will be a lot of zombies attacking them. After you save the friend the pair asks to join your group. If you refuse to recruit them, they'll reward you with a rucksack.
