A CD is used with a ValuTech PortaDisc to reduce boredom.


A CD is used in conjunction with a ValuTech PortaDisc to entertain the player. CDs feature a variety of music and audiobooks from the world of Project Zomboid. Most retail CDs are parodies of songs from the early 1990s and function solely to reduce the player character's boredom, and produce some light amusement in the player themselves.


The loot distributions can be found in the table(s) below.
