Pole weapon used for hunting and self-defense.
—Blueprint description


"A stabbing weapon known from ancient times and still effective nowadays."

The Spear is a basic weapon that can be crafted early in the game.


The spear is the cheapest weapon to make in the game. It does low damage and has an average attack speed. The usefulness of the spear is that it is cheap to make and great for killing Roaming Zombie. If a player was to sneak up on a Roaming Zombie, the player can do 30 damage for a sneak attack and finish off the zombies without taking any damage.

The spear is very useful in green zones, however it is not a good weapon for fighting fast zombies.

The spear can be used quite effectively for collecting Airdrops. By taking 2 spears and a full set of Dad Armor, you can eliminate enemies quite easily, as the Toxic Spitters run at you immediately, and you can take them out with minimal damage, as each shot does 4 damage, and each spit deals 10, rather than 15. This is a cheap strategy for airdrops, and is quite unheard of, yet because it only costs about a stack of plant fibers-worth of materials and 1-2 spears (depending on how much your fighting), can take out Toxic Spitters and Fast Biters quite easily if done correctly and with healing items.
