Description[ | ]

Zombie Bears are zombie animals found in the Wasteland and Burnt Forest, as well as during certain events or in specific locations. Zombie Bears are hostile and will try to chase and attack the player if provoked or if it spots the player. It will also attack other Animals and Zombies, and will almost always win the fight, as the Zombie Bear is one of the most dangerous enemies you can encounter in Navezgane. Zombie Bears are so strong, that they are able to one-shot a player from full health. It is ill-advised to try any sort of melee combat with the bear as it will shortly end for the player. If you do try to use melee, then it is a wise idea to have strong armor and healing items ready. If the player does not have any ranged weapon to kill the Zombie Bear, then it should be avoided at all costs. A Zombie Bear can tear down buildings extremely fast, and should be the primary target if one is attacking your base.

Drops[ | ]

It is recommended to use a Bone Knife, Hunting Knife, or Machete when harvesting because it will provide the player with more resources than any other tool or weapon. Zombie Bears will not drop any loot upon being killed but can be harvested for the following:

Likely Locations[ | ]

Specific location strategies[ | ]

  • For the one found in the construction site. Best way to kill this one is get its attention run out of the cave and get out of the basement. The zombie bear cannot fit through the doorways so it'll try to break through the walls but one can simply just stand above it and wale on it with anything you got. Just don't fall or you're dead. Inside of its cave is a Shamway Crate and a medium sized food stash and a small one. So you can judge if it's worth it or not.
  • In The Bear Den bar as soon as the zombie bears notice you, they will begin to break out of their cages. When this happens run to the entrance of the building and stand in the exit door or windows. The bears will be forced to come through a narrow hallway use a shotgun or machine gun to fire at them when they come through the door. Be careful as both bears may come at the same time.
