As you recruit new survivors and your community grows in State of Decay 2, you’ll need to start branching out to find new bases to occupy, ones that have more space for facilities and resources. Bases are safe zones that provide shelter and supplies for your survivors and are places where survivors can reside in State of Decay 2. Bases are slightly different from Outposts, which offer similar benefits but cannot be lived in. Claiming bases allows you to build new facilities and store items in multiple locations.

In State of Decay 2, there are three main map regions: Drucker County (Plateau), Cascade Hills (Foothills), and Meagher Valley (Valley). Each map contains an assortment of base locations to claim and secure. Below, we’ve listed all the bases players can find in State of Decay 2, along with their price point and a list of facilities available in each.

All Base Locations in Drucker County

There are seven bases in Drucker County in State of Decay 2, one of which is the home base that is unlocked as part of the main story. Most of these bases are situated near the edge of the map, which means you may have to travel further distances to drop off resources at these locations and to move from one base to the next.

Vogel House

State of Decay 2 Vogel House Base

The Vogul House is the first home base you build and establish in Drucker County for State of Decay 2. This is a small base that only offers three spaces for additional facilities.
