Destroying the Plague Hearts plays an important role in State of Decay 2. Destroying them will make your life a whole lot easier since you will have fewer enemies to deal with. However, destroying them will not be easy, and this State of Decay 2 Plague Hearts Guide is here to help you with it.

Our State of Decay 2 Plague Hearts Guide will explain what the Plague Hearts in State of Decay 2 are and how you can destroy them.

State of Decay 2 Plague Hearts

Plague Hearts are essentially heaps of flesh that are found all over the world. The reason why they are so important is that a lot of the zombies float around these Plague Hearts.

The strongest of all of the zombies, known as Plague Zombies, also seem to prefer hanging around these Plague Hearts. The major problem is that as soon as you defeat a Plague Heart, all of the remaining ones get stronger.

In order to destroy a Plague Heart, you will need to go in heavily armed as the enemies here are going to be some of the strongest in the game.

Let’s go ahead and see how to destroy a Plague Heart.

How to Destroy Plague Hearts

In order to find a Plague Heart, keep an eye out for Plague Zombies. These zombies usually have eyes that glow bright red and are covered in blood. If you see a lot of them in one spot, then it means that a Plague Heart is nearby.

Once you actually see a Plague Heart with your eyes, it will be permanently marked on your map with a skull icon.

To destroy Plague Hearts, you can use melee weapons but that is not the best option since you will tire yourself out and the zombies will overwhelm you. The best way to defeat a Plague Heart is to grab a car and honk your horn outside the building to draw in the zombies.

Once you they are out, you can run them over to take them out all at once.

The zombies will drop a Blood Plague sample. Take all of them and head into the building. Once you are in, you can shoot the plague heart or use an explosive.

Remember that shooting it will draw the attention of more zombies who will probably come and fight you. A C4 explosive, on the other hand, will wipe it out completely. Since C4 is incredibly rare in the game, an alternative is to craft a few Soda Can Bombs and use them to wipe the Plague Heart out.

Alternatively, you can also try using Molotov Cocktails or one of the more powerful variants of the aforementioned bombs e.g. Fuel Canisters or Pipe Bombs.

Using enough explosives will quickly wipe out the plague heart and is your best option for eradicating them out as opposed to conventional firearms or melee attacks.
