Technical details
Base ID Base.SpearCrafted

A crafted spear, previously called wooden spear, is a weapon and tool that is crafted by a player and cannot be randomly found in containers. Spears can be attached to the character's back for quick access and weight reduction.

Usage

Pros Cons
  • Long reach, great for not getting too close to zombies.
  • Spear charge ability.
  • Easy to gather the resources required to craft it.
  • Able to attach short blades to the spear, making it more powerful.
  • Can be used to fish.
  • Weapon condition influenced by crafter's Carpentry skill level.
  • Weak durability. Carrying additional spears or backup weapons is recommended.
  • Likely to break when fishing.

Condition/Durability

The spear suffers from a low maximum Condition and takes damage at an exceedingly high rate until Maintenance is leveled. At level 0 Maintenance, it has a 50% chance of lowering its condition each attack. The chance of losing durability is: 1 in (1 + maintenance x 2)

Special Ability: Spear Charge

Every spear has the ability to use a unique spear charge attack. To use the spear charge ability, you must sprint(Left Alt key by default), after a few seconds of sprinting, the character will begin a spear charge and any zombie on the receiving end of the charge will be killed in one blow. Spear charges are best used against lone zombies due to your character being vulnerable during the kill animation. There are other risks such as nearby zombies being alerted by your sprinting, more difficult for your character to turn while sprinting and your character falling over if they sprint into a wall.

Spear-fishing

Fishing with a crafted spear.
Main article: Fishing

A crafted spear can be used in fishing instead of a fishing rod. Although easier to obtain, a crafted spear is just as likely to break as a twine line on a crafted fishing rod.

A crafted spear has a lower chance of catching a fish, equal to the benefits gained when fishing during dawn or dusk, regardless of the player's fishing level. It also takes less time to complete a fishing cycle compared to any other fishing gear.








Crafting

A crafted spear is created by sharpening a tree branch or plank with a kitchen knife, hunting knife, chipped stone, stone knife, meat cleaver, or machete.
The crafted spear's max condition is dependant on the player's carpentry skill. This is defined by a random number between: 2 + carpentry and 4 + carpentry. The tool used to craft the spear will then lose 1 durability, excluding the chipped stone. The chipped stone has a 1 in 4 chance of being consumed.

Upgrading

A spear may have many different attachments, each can be applied with two units of duct tape.
The upgraded spear's max condition is dependant on the items used to craft it. If the tools are damaged, the spear will have a lower condition.
