Bases and outposts are one of the most important aspects of State of Decay 2. They provide you with shelter, storage, medical supplies, resources and a place for your comrades to stay. You’re going to start off with one, but you’ll soon start expanding into different locations, claiming as many of the game’s 20+ bases as you can. You’ll also want to upgrade them with new facilities, so they provide you with the best bonuses. In this guide, we’re going to show you all State of Decay 2 home base locations.
How to build Home Base & upgrade facilities
After the tutorial, you’ll get to claim your first base and start expanding it. Simply clear the area of zombies and go to the center of the location, looking for a flag that will let you claim it. This will ease you into what’s required to start building facilities, how they work and how to make the most of them. You’ll build facilities by going to empty lots, standing on them and pulling up the appropriate menu (Y). After you’ve upgraded your first base all the way, you’ll want to start claiming other places.
Cascade Hills base locations
Justineau House is where you’ll land if you choose this as your starting zone. You’ll find it in the southeastern corner of the area. It’s a decent place, but you’ll soon outgrow it and start dreaming of a bigger place.
The Corner Office is a good choice. It’s in the middle of the map, so it’s equally distant from pretty much everywhere, and it starts off with the following: chic eatery kitchen, garden lvl 2, overlook, workshop lvl 2, sheltered beds and two parking spaces. It also has one large open slot, and two small outdoor slots, and it can be expanded with two outposts. It covers three floors of a building, and a small yard. It takes five survivors and 1000 Influence to claim this base.
The Church on The Hill is equally central, and seems equally large, albeit with a much different layout. It consists of the following: a bell tower, four parking spaces, and two sets of pews, both of which are clearable. You also get one large open slot, one small indoor slot, and two small outdoor slots. Not a lot, considering it takes 1000 Influence and five survivors.
Another interesting one is the Loch & Keogh Self Storage. You’ll find it in the northwestern corner of the map. It’s a storage facility with lots of open space and several small buildings. The facilities it has are: elaborate storage, two sets of sheltered beds, secret distillery, three parking spaces, watchtower, abandoned locker (clearable). You can connect it with two outposts, and expand it across one large slot, one small indoor slot and two small outdoor slots. You’re gonna need 1500 Influence and six survivors to claim it.
