The Starting Walkthrough
After creating the character or customizing the look, you will land on an unknown land(Highway). There you will find an NPC, named Aleksey. He will guide you until the tutorial. At the end of the tutorial quests, he will be killed by the infected creature, named Lozarov. At the top-left corner of the screen, you can check the quests. The first quest challenges you to find a usable gear. All you need to do is move over to the glowing circle area. There you will find the life detector. Open it. Move ahead and pick the bag. Open it.
The second quest tasks you to use the bandage to restore stamina. Tap the medical kit box on your screen -> use bandages.
After that, you will have to talk to the Aleksey. The next quest tasks you to gather the resources for making a machete. In the wilderness, you can collect loads of resources such as ore, stone, wood, food, and more.
In the early phase of the game, stone/wood/food is the most useful resource. You can gather stone/ore from the rocks.
You get wood from the trees. There are two types of weapons that you need to gather wood, stone. These two weapons are an axe, pickaxe. To chop trees, you need an AXE. To get stones/ores from the rocks, you need a pickaxe. If you have none of these weapons, you can still gather these resources. But, In this tutorial, the game gifts these tools free.
Just below the mini-map, you can switch between the weapons. To gather the resources, go close to the wood or tree or any item -> point to it(aim) -> tap the AXE icon on your screen. The character picks the resources automatically.
Additionally, you can make these weapons(tap the make option at the bottom-left corner) -> here you can craft tools, weapons, ammo, health material.
After gathering enough resources, talk to the NPC. After that, follow the dog to discover the way to escape. The dog will guide you to the ladder. Tell about the ladder to Aleksey. This tutorial teaches you how to leave a map using a helicopter and go back to the home. Once you are out, NPC will guide you to a cabin where you will face infected Zombies and Lazarov.
The zombies and Lazarov will try to kill you. You will have to get out of the cabin and follow Aleksin to find a vehicle to leave. After that, you will find a group of people with a Helicopter. Aleksey will give a shotgun to you. But without ammo. The ammo box is near the helicopter. Go there and replenish ammo. After that, you will have to craft Barricades. On the same location, there would be an old chest. Open that chest and you will find the Barricade or Barricade material there. Go to the make option -> all -> Barricade -> craft. Once crafted, open the bag -> select Barricade -> gear -> put the Barricade on circle(behind Aleksey).
Once you are done, zombies will arrive. Keep fighting with them until your team is ready to board. Aleksey repairs the Helicopter. Head towards the helicopter. After that, Lazarov, the creature, attacks your Helicopter.
The Safe Place
Lazarov attacks crash your Helicopter and all the characters fell into the river. After that, follow Aleksey. You will come across a place. This is basically the building tutorial. In this tutorial, you learn how to repair walls, build walls, doors, use gear workstation, build balconies, and more. That place already has a bunch of facilities; material bench, weapon chest, gear workstation. Using the material bench, you can craft doors. Using the gear workstation, you can craft a simple rifle. Use the weapon chest to replenish ammo.
After that, a bunch of zombies will invade that place. Fight them. Then, an airdrop will appear. Visit there and collect the resources. So this is the LifeAfter game’s 2nd part walkthrough. Let’s head to the LifeAfter Lab walkthrough.
After getting the air-drop supplies, talk to the NPC. Aleksey will guide you to the lab, where you interact with some scientists. Explore a bit. After that, you get the message box. Place it anywhere on the ground. Then choose to leave a message. Put some resources and leave a message -> confirm. After that, you will fight against the infected zombies. In the next room, there is a cabinet. Find it(Your dog will be there). Use the gun to break/shatter the lab cabinet door and get the lab access card. After getting the lab access card, head to the exit door(go straight, the right – towards the lab cabin door). After that, you will escape. Find the radio and communicate with support. Once done, you will get another airdrop. From this airdrop, you get an AR(Rifle). Use it to defeat Lazarov.
Once escaped, you will enter the town hall. There you will interact with a number of NPCs; Justin, Rachel, Bulk, and more. At last, you leave the town hall and enter the game “LIFEAFTER”.
So this is the complete LifeAfter walkthrough to pass tutorial. Let’s learn more in the Get Started Part.
Get Started; Home Foundation
After completing the tutorial(leaving the town hall), you will enter the development zone where the game lets you build a cabin. But, when you enter that zone, there would be an infected zombie around. You will have to make a bow weapon and strike down it. To complete this quest, you need to make bow and craft arrows. As we mentioned above, you need an AXE or Pickaxe to gather wood/stone. But, at that time, you have nothing. All you need to do is go close to the rock and tree -> tap the punch/action option on the screen. Gather wood and make a bow. Gather wood and stone -> craft arrows.
Also, note that when you land in that area, there would be a container near the cabin. Open it and get the resources. This is important to make a bow. If you go manually(gathering), it will take time. So find that container asap. After that kill that infected zombie.
That’s it. In the next quest, you will have to contact with the radio. The radio(Comms station) is near the cabin. Find it. There would be a home sign too. Retrieve it. Just back side of the cabin, there would be a ground. Retrieve it. There are some more objects that you need to retrieve.
Once picked, head to the bag menu -> select ground -> gear -> place it in the blue zone. Now, gather the wood, stone and build your home. Also, explore a bit and you will find a bed, chair, gear workstation, material bench.
Place all these facilities inside the house. Build walls, doors, stairs. That’s it. So this is the LifeAfter get started guide for beginners.
Progress; Manually, Newbiew Chapters
After building the house, there are two ways to progress through the game. You can either follow the newbie walkthrough quest guide or explore the things manually. Newbie Guide -> At the top-right corner of the game screen -> tap the newbie button -> here you can accept the challenges. On the left page of the book, you can check the rewards. On the right page of the book, you can check the challenges.
You can also set your own goal. For example; make a weapon, armor, make your house more durable or strong. In all these missions, you need to gather resources. These resources can be found in the Wilderness. (Aim over the material bench, gear workstation to find out the facilities/items that you can craft).
⇒To travel to the different areas of Island, you use a Helicopter. While staying in the development zone, tap the mini-map at the top-right corner. The red exit icon displays the location of a helicopter. Go there -> open. A map window will pop out on your screen. You can visit a number of areas. Choose Pact Zone -> Autumn Forest. You can unlock new areas by raising gathering skill level. Gathering skill level increases as you gather resources on the wilderness areas(i.e. Autumn Forest).
Tap the proceed button to go there.
⇒Once you are there, tap the mini-map -> tap the + icon on the right side to zoom. On the left side, you can check the resources available in that area. Note down the icon and close the mini-map. Follow the small icons on the mini-map and get the resources. For example; Food is pointed out as a green icon. Hemp is like a leaf. Gather these resources(As much as you can).
⇒Once you are done, find a helicopter(open the mini-map -> red exit icon). Go there -> use the ladder.
⇒Keep in mind that you can not go away with the infected items. After climbing up through the ladder on the helicopter evac point -> you will find the postman there. Interact with him and choose to mail the items. After that, go to the home -> you will find the mailbox there -> open it -> get the items back.
