The Project Zomboid foraging skill lets you interact with forested areas to search for food and valuable resources for your survival. Project Zomboid can be nightmarishly difficult to survive in, but using the right skills and mechanics can make all the difference. This is where foraging comes in, as it allows you to search areas that are less likely to house the undead. However, if you need to know how to perform the Project Zomboid foraging skill, we've got you covered.

Project Zomboid Foraging: How Does Foraging Work?

Project Zomboid foraging

If to begin with, you are wondering what foraging even does in Project Zomboid, it allows your character to search the forested and wooded areas for resource and food items. The actual skill you possess in foraging (which can be increased with skill magazines or upgrade points) determines the type of items you can find, the target radius you search in, and the chance that you discover poisonous food. 

With regard to poisonous food, this can be worrisome, as if you're not careful you may end up killing yourself, but there are ways around it. If you have level seven cooking, this allows you to detect poisonous berries and mushrooms, and earning the Herbalist trait will grant you the ability no matter your level.

Project Zomboid Foraging: How To Forage

To begin the Project Zomboid foraging and start searching the trees and bushes, you need to toggle the spyglass icon that appears on the UI, and select "Investiagate Area." This will bring up an overlay that shows you the terrain you're on, the Sun's position in the sky, and a button for activating "Search Mode." 

Activating this mode will blur the screen, with exception for a target radius (which is determined by your foraging skill) that you search for food and resources within. As you keep searching in the radius a few things will happen.

Firstly, items can spawn or despawn during your foraging, and as you get closer to finding an item in your target radius, an eyeball icon will appear over your character. If you remain close to the item, its icon will eventually appear which grants you some XP.

You can then double-click the item you’ve found which put it in your inventory, or right click to give yourself the option of gathering or discarding it - which will also grant some XP regardless of your choice.

That's our breakdown of the Project Zomboid foraging skill, and now you will be able to search the forests for the best food and resource items, while avoiding the poisonous berries.
