* UniversalAmmunition: Due to memory limitation and game balancing, many types of ammo of similar calibers in real life are grouped into one. For example, the 7.62mm round in the game represents many different calibers such as .30-06, .300 Win Mag, 7.62x39mm and .308 Winchester/7.62x51mm [=NATO=]. This is pointed out in the description for the 7.62mm and 5.56mm, noting that they represent "caliber families". This is also the reason why some weapons don't use their proper chambering. For example, the Glock 20 10mm pistol is re-chambered in-game to use .45 [=ACP=]. The devs simply can't add any more ammo types. The game briefly handwaves this by describing each type of ammo as a "Family of calibers", not a single caliber.

** The .50 cal anti-materiel rifles ([[http://stateofdecay.wikia.com/wiki/Mk._15 Mk. 15]] and [[http://stateofdecay.wikia.com/wiki/M107_CQ M107 CQ]]). They can [[OneHitPolykill shred multiple zombies with one shot]], and can down [[TheJuggernaut]] with merely 4 headshots. They are also TooAwesomeToUse, due to the scarcity of .50 cal rounds, and in the case of the M107, also extremely loud and cannot be suppressed. It gets even worse in the ''Breakdown'' DLC, where their weight are increased to 20 lbs, which means they instantly encumbered normal survivors, draining their Stamina even faster when they sprint.

State of Decay combines elements of multiple game genres including third-person combat, base building and community management, loot collection, skills improving, and [[FinalDeath permadeath]], among others. The game is single-player only (Currently Undead consistently stated they had no intention of making a Co-Op DLC), but will pave the way for Undead Labs's future zombie apocalypse MMO, tentatively titled "[=Class4=]" and State of Decay 2 to be released on next-gen consoles and PC. The game's campaign mode ostensibly follows four core survivors, Marcus "the Hero," Ed "the Friend," Maya "the Veteran" and Lilly the team's (immortal in gameplay terms) mission control. These survivors band together to face a zombie apocalypse in the rural Trumbull Valley. Notably, any character other than Lilly can be killed at any time. The player is encouraged to scavenge, build a secure homebase, acquire new resources and firepower, contact other survivors, and eventually escape the valley. Simply put, if you've ever wanted to scream at characters in zombie fiction "[[IdiotBall you're doing it wrong]]!" here's your chance to set the record straight.

Added DiffLines:

** Firebombs and molotov cocktails. They're not as flashy as the military explosives you can find, but they can easily clear an infestation or stop a horde and they don't make noise when used so you don't have to worry about drawing in more zombies. Best of all, you will almost always have some in the supply locker as a few are added every time you collect a fuel resource.
** Normal searching. Sure you can fast search, but unless you have the stealth perk, which itself can take quite awhile to get, you run the risk of causing a racket and having the game spawn a horde of zombies to punish you. Normal searching take a few seconds longer, but carries no such risk.

Added DiffLines:

* LeftHanging: As with the third town, it feels as if certain plot points weren't fully developed before release.
** It feels as if there was going to be a final confrontation between the player's group and the Wilkerson brothers, but ultimately nothing comes of it.
** CLEO. Is it a civilian group, a covert branch of the military, an AI, or what? We never find out.


* {{Deconstruction}}: Serves as one to the typical ArmiesAreEvil perspective in zombie stories. In Lifeline, from the Danforth survivors perspective, the Army is cowardly, cruel, and unhelpful. However from the view of the player, who controls the Army, they're simply having to deal with TheNeedsOfTheMany. Even the cruelest action of the DLC [[spoiler: detonating the nuke]], is done with the best of intentions for the rest of the country. Likewise, the various Army soldiers aren't portrayed in the usual hivemind fashion. Some want to save everyone, some want to save those that they can, some don't care about the civilians, and most just want to get out alive.

** Sasquatch's hunts serve to discuss and deconstruct the idea of special zombies.


Added DiffLines:

* JustBeforeTheEnd: It's implied this is the direction in which the United States is heading. There is still a President out there somewhere and the Army is still, barely, operating, but the situation is deteriorating fast. [[spoiler:The government is so desperate to stop the outbreak they've apparently authorized the use of nukes on infested cities.]]
