Earn to Die Rogue Gameplay Basics

The gameplay involves the player taking up control of the main character Greyson, as he drives his way through the zombies and then loots infested buildings for several power-ups and new car parts.

To complete a map or a location, you would need to get through 30 rooms filled with zombies consecutively. Three of those rooms would not have zombies, but power-ups and/or rewards instead. After clearing the rooms, find the missing parts for a new vehicle to go to a new location as the missions suggest.

Earn to Die Rogue Beginners Guide: Tips and Tricks

Here are some major tips and tricks that I wish someone had told me before the zombie apocalypse:

1. Remember that you aren’t Shooting

The basic point one needs to set up in one’s mind is that it is not a shooting game. The shooting is automatic. All you need to do is dodge the enemy firing. Hence, do not keep tapping the jump button randomly. Even if you do not tap it, you are still shooting the zombies. Keep your distance from the foot zombies and keep notice of the cannons and automatic guns that shoot at you by dodging them.

2. Prioritize items that heal

At the beginning of a 30-room run, you are offered to choose from 3x random items to boost your power against the zombies from the very beginning. Also, after clearing most of the rooms, you would again be given three items out of which you can choose one.

But this time, you will be able to see all three items and choose according to your strategy, unlike the previous time. Often, you might come across items like Golden Apples, Fungi, Fresh Water, etc., which help you increase or restore your health. Always prioritize choosing such items, since the fierce battles will always affect the character’s overall health status, and respawning often is not an option in the game.

3. Go for the Attacking boost in the fifth room

The fifth, fifteenth and the twenty-fifth room in a run-in doesn’t have any zombies, but instead, gives you choices like a health boost or an attacking boost to choose from. Our suggestion would be, in case you have already acquired health power-ups like a Golden Apple, which increases your health after you complete each room, try to choose the attacking boosts in those rooms.

The attacking boosts may include increase of attacking speed, or increase in attack damage or critical hits. However, in case your health is very much low and you have already respawned once, you can choose the health boost accordingly.

4. Upgrade your current items with Duplicates

Sometimes after clearing a particular room, you might be given the option of acquiring an item that you already have acquired once. Choosing that item again is not a bad idea, especially since it levels up that particular item. For example, acquiring Fungi more than once makes the Fungi appear more in number in the upcoming rooms, and items like kinetic junk increase the amount of junk orbiting Greyson, and hence increase the frequency of damage to the enemy.

5. Use the full potential of certain items

Even after you clear a room, complete certain objectives for your good, based on the items that you have selected. For example, collect all the fungi remaining in the room, to restore your health. Also, another useful item named the Blood Bag restores your health once you walk over the dead zombies. Hence, after clearing a room, if dead zombies are falling on the floor, walk over them to restore your character’s health.

6. Damage-dealing power-ups are great too

There are several items like the Air and Ground Lasers, Matchstick, and Kinetic Junk, which deal constant damage to the enemies besides the handgun. In case you choose them, make sure to also take the attack boosts available throughout the game.

7. Use the Barriers strategically

The mid-air platforms during the fights also act as barriers for bullets and cannons from either party. Hide beneath or behind such barriers to be safe from the projected attacks from the cannons in particular.

8. Deal damage without even hitting the Zombies

In the game, you can also deal automatic damage to the opponents with powerups like Nuclear Waste and Gasoline. They deal gradual damage to the opposition whenever the time comes, hence turning the battle in your favour.

9. Upgrade the Wheels

Never make the mistake of just acquiring all the car parts and setting off for the journey. First upgrade every single part of your car, otherwise you might not be able to move much forward with just the primary condition of your car. Collect junk from a car run, and use the junk to upgrade your car.

10. Watch Ads whenever necessary

For this, you need to be online while playing the game. The ads enable you to choose a second random item at the beginning of the mission and also a power-up just after that. It also comes to the aid during a respawn, however, the health status after recovery is half of the total health.
