The Walking Dead: Road to Survival Tips and tricks

Below you’ll find plenty of tips and tricks for the game The Walking Dead: Road to Survival. We go to the base, the characters and the fights. We also explain the difference between raids, and the world map. In the next section we deal with the factions, which you can join in The Walking Dead: Road to Survival.

Raids, worldmap and roadmap: The difference

First of all, we will point out the difference between the different types of missions. Furthermore, there is a world-energy and raid-energy. For Raids RAID energy is required for the world and roadmap the world’s energy is required.

  • Raids: Fight against other players of The Walking Dead Road to Survival, to rise in the rankings
  • Roadmap: Time-limited missions that bring different bonuses and items
  • World: single-player missions with various stations and sections

General Tips to fight for The Walking Dead: Road to Survival

Next up we have a few tips for battle, because this is finally the most important part of The Walking Dead: Road to Survival. Before going into battle, you should always pay attention to the characteristics. Partially the characteristics of the zombies will be displayed before each mission, so you can select the appropriate characters, who have an advantage over these.

In the fight itself, you can tap the zombies and choose independently, which one is to be attacked. Alternatively, you can automate the fight by tapping the arrow at the bottom left. However, it is advisable to use your persons independent. Here are a few tips to The Walking Dead: Road to Survival:

  • Always Kill the zombies, who are the closest to your people
  • Use the rush strategically and not directly, if this is possible
  • If you do not know what is the special ability of a person, then click on the icon and hold this down
  • If zombies are hiding behind barricades, then only ranged weapons help. Therefore, it makes sense to attack first melee uncovered persons, otherwise they are useless in the round

Furthermore, you can use items in the fight that you get either as a reward or can be produced in the workshop. How you should use this, we have listed in a later tip to The Walking Dead: Road to Survival.


In combat, you should use your rush wisely. If you keep the rush icon touched, it allows you to display the bonus of the adrenaline rush.

Select weapons for your characters

Before going into battle, you should take a look at the weapons for your characters. By changing your team you need again partially reassign the weapons. Each weapon is assigned to a characteristic, so that for example the tough feature can only be used on tough weapons. Under each weapon is also the ability of the weapon. Some bring more attack, others assist in the defense and so on. Choose the right section to match the correct weapons.


Equip your people in The Walking Dead: Road to Survival always with the best weapons.

Expand your base in The Walking Dead: Road to Survival

Another important part of The Walking Dead Road to Survival is the expansion of the base. Here you should always first upgrade the city hall, to later upgrade other buildings to a higher level. Furthermore, this will expand the land area on which you can place other buildings and farms.

Also important in The Walking Dead: Road to Survival is the material post, since this always must be upgraded to have enough space for material. Another important building in The Walking Dead: Road to Survival is the training ground. Here you can convert survived into characters that you can then use to level up your people.


Always upgrade the town hall to build more buildings and upgrade existing ones.

Use your items in the fights with care

Furthermore, you can use items in the fights. So you can for example, fill up the life of your people again. These items you can create in the workshop. When a character has been attacked, for example, and a lot of life points are lost, you should replenish the life, so that the person does not die right away.

  1. I noticed that during battle, if you hold your finger down on a character, you get an option to drag them onto the next character (one space to the right), with a Red Arrow and the words “Defend”. What’s that all about?

  2. Perhaps You can use a full health person to take the punishment of a weak person thus keeping them alive for another turn

    • The only time you can’t use them is when you’re in a raid or on the survival map. but on the world map you can use your battle items anytime you wish.

  6. Faction. Not fraction. But good article thanks for the info

  7. I want a friend and I to join the same faction, but we r in different regions, I noticed the other day if u click ur level while in ur town there is a profile code, could that code be a way to not start over in a different region? My friend and I are high levels and worked hard to level our characters, is there anything we can do?

    • Hi, unfortunately the only way you and your friend can play together is to start in another region together. You won’t loose your stuff from your main regions. Unless one of your current regions isnt full. If you go to the regions section you can look at your region and see if their is room if it says full, you can not bring your friend in. If it isn’t full you should be able to invite hour friend with that code you were talking about. But I’m not sure if they would have to start over or not. I hope this helps

  13. I upgraded my iPhone to a new one and when I downloaded the game onto my new phone I got a mismatch ID error. The instructions told me to delete the game from the phone and then redownload it. I did that and now my account is gone completely. After 10 messages with Scopely they finally responded and said they need my in game name and lvl and any purchase transactions. I gave them all of that and they still could not help me… They then said I need the region I was in and they could find it but I was not told that in the instructions when I was deleting the game… Does anyone have or know a list of all the EN regions in the game?

  18. how do you increase adrenaline in the characters?

    • The best was is to use the same characters. It will have a “push” on it that will automatically upgrade your AR. The other was is to make characters of the same traits ex: peacekeepers need other peacekeepers to upgrade AR. These will be highlighted in green when you go to level up. It’s best to use 10 at a time. Usually you will be able to upgrade your AR like this. But it doesn’t always work. You just have to keep doing it. Hope this helps

      The game isn’t going past 53% because the storage space on your phone is too low to support the game. I had that problem as well because I was running another game that sucked up too much storage and I was unaware of it. I ended up deleting the secondary game to free up storage and never had loading issues on walking dead after doing so.
