If you are new to this game and want to find a place where you can safely put your stuff while you go out and explore, you have come to the right place. Or probably you have been playing the game for a while, and you are unsatisfied with your current base, or simply you just want a safe place to spend a night in without zombies tearing up your house down and bothering you while you craft your stone ax and clubs. The method I use to build an underground base is tested in the early, middle, and the late game. The base can also be upgraded depending on your taste, for instance, if you want castles instead of simple bases, you can do it.
If you are just starting the game, it’s going to be a little harder for you because you lack the proper tools. But, don’t worry; stone tools can do the trick. It’s just going to take a little longer.
If you want to build an underground base, the first thing you need to do is collect some material. You will need grass, stone, and wood for the construction. So punch ahead. Once you have got the material, you are supposed to find some point of interest in the game, a location. It can be a town, a village or place like that. That way, you can go out and get some cool stuff.
Point of Interest
Once you have found some point of interest, you need to go away from the edge of the town a little bit so that you don’t attract zombies. Zombies are a real menace at the start of the game so stay away from them. Big cities are always a spawning point for zombies, and you don’t want to be around them.
Once you have found the exact spot where you are going to build the base, start working. For this, you need a lot of stone axes. That’s where the stone grass and wood come into play. Now when you have got a bunch of stone axes, you need to craft some wood ladders. If you are missing some wood, go ahead and chop some. You should at least have sixty ladders. Once you have the ladders, make sure to spend all your points into miner 69er. That’s going to help you dig faster because you are supposed to dig deep into the ground. Find a nice spot you are going to dig into and start digging. This is going to take a while, but it’s worth it. If you build an underground base, the zombies aren’t going to bother you anymore. You just go straight down until you hit the bedrock.
Making a Room
Once you have hit the bedrock, the next thing you are going to do is build a room, so make 6×6 at least. That will provide you enough room for your stuff. Once you have made the room, you are going to use those ladders to get up there. So, put all those ladders up to the top. Once you have put all the ladders up to the top, you are going to need a trap door so zombies don’t just fall down.
You might be thinking that this is a cozy and insecure place, but don’t worry because zombies aren’t going to see you here. All you have to do is hop in and you are gone.
Barricades around the Trap Door
Once you have made the trap door, you can also put barricades around it for extra security. Once you have put barricades around the entrance door, you can also put blocks around it to make your base further strong. But the most important thing is that put a door on your entrance and lock it.
You can always upgrade your entrance; you can make it bigger, and stronger. Later when the game becomes little easier, you can also make a yard here, a killing yard, and kill all those pathetic zombies that dare come in here.
Bottom of the Base
When you are down there at the bottom of your base, make sure to put some torches around. Finally, you have a simple but effective base. Zombies can’t even hear or smell you down here, except for 7-day horde which is a little bit weird. When 7-day horde spawns, it knows you are down here, but the interesting thing is that they forget about you in a minute. And that is why this base is so nice. You are down here making those stone axes and clubs, and they are up there roaming around and trampling on your traps.
