A green poncho is a clothing item. It fully protects from rain, and looks cool.

Usage

When worn, the poncho provides great water and wind resistance, but barely any protection against anything other than scratches.

Pros and cons

Pros Cons
  • Provides full water resistance.
  • Protects head and provides scratch protection even when the hood is down, making it better than the yellow poncho.
  • Little insulation may make it great for hot summer rains for character without the outdoorsman trait.
  • Very little insulation for winter.
  • Only offers a little of scratch protection.
  • Can't be repaired.

Effective chance calculations are based off of default loot settings, and median zombie density. The higher the density of zombies in an area, the higher the effective chance of an item spawning. Chance is also influenced by the lucky and unlucky traits.

Ponchos can be found rarely in the Louisville Military checkpoint, Army surplus stores, malls, and pawns shops.

Trivia

  • When hooded, it provides 5% less insulation and wind resistance (10% and 75% respectively). This behavior is similar with other items with a hood.
  • When unhooded, it still protects head. This is likely an oversight.
  • It uses the same icon as Hoodie.
