State of Decay 2 Skill Books: How to Get, What They Do

As you dive deeper and deeper into the zombie apocalypse, you will want to know about the State of Decay 2 Skill Books. The game even mentions them pretty early on in the opening hours of the game but doesn't give much information beyond what is pretty obvious. Thankfully for you, that's where we come in.

We are going to detail exactly what the State of Decay 2 Skill Books are. We are not only going to cover what they do, but how to get them, too. Interestingly enough, there are some hidden ways of getting the Skill Books that you maybe didn't already know about. Let's get started.

State of Decay 2 Skill Books Explained

The State of Decay 2 Skill Books are, like in other games like Fallout, a type of consumable item that gives you an extra skill to enhance your character with. This could range from a variety of types of skills from combat-focused to even non-combat skills like gardening. However, it isn't the easiest to get these Skill Books.

How to Get State of Decay 2 Skill Books

There are actually a couple of ways that you can get the State of Decay 2 Skill Books. The first is an obvious one but from scavenging locations. It is entirely possible but also unlikely that you can come across a book while looting houses and such. It is also possible to gain one by buying them from survivors.

However, there is one way to get the State of Decay 2 Skill Books that the game doesn't do a great job of explaining. There is actually a way to craft them from scratch. For this, we are going to use the example of the Gardening Skill Book. To get this, you must have a farm built at your base. With the farm, you can use the action Gardening Study to create a skill book. There are other facilities that allow you to craft these precious books.
