State of Decay 2’s Juggernauts Can Wipe Out Your Whole Group

The bigger they are the harder they destroy everything you hold dear.

State of Decay 2 throws a lot of mayhem your way in the simulated zombie apocalypse. From general run-of-the-mill zombies, zombies in full body armor, zombies in clown attire (which adds a whole new level of creepy issues to work through), and the apex predators of the zombie horde – the Freaks.

Chief among those monstrosities are the Juggernauts, towering mountains of flesh and hunger that Undead Labs’ CEO Jeff Strain calls, “community enders.” To put that into context, in State of Decay 2, you don’t play a single character, but rather a collective of survivors. When one person dies, you can swap into another survivor and carry on. And that’s why a Juggernaut is so terrifying – it can kill everyone if you’re not careful.

During our IGN First livestream with Strain and design director Richard Foge, we had the unfortunate opportunity to encounter multiple Juggernauts running amok. You can see for yourself in the video at the top of the page, but things… got out of hand.

“Juggernaut versus car [is] not a great situation,” said Foge after watching his survivor Trish get ripped in half by a Juggernaut. “He doesn’t care. He will mow down vehicles. I’m sorry… I’m emotional right now.”

But Foge was quick to remark that they’re not invincible. “If you’re willing to sacrifice and entire vehicle, and all of a character – rest in peace, poor Trish – you too can kill a single Juggernaut. And sometimes they come in pairs!”
