This War of Mine (Android/iOS) Guide – Pro Tip

Pro tips:

Always focus to build first:

Radio: To get informed about everything what’s going on.

Beds (2 are enough) a must do first, if not, survivors can’t rest well.

Stove: Having cooked meals are better than wasting eating raw food. Improve it ASAP if Bruno isn’t in your party.

Metal workshop: Build it ASAP and craft the crowbar, it’s way much better than lock picks, if you have lock picks you may want save them for later (like robbing someone). Upgrade it when you can, having saw blades are very useful to access some areas with very nice loot, and a hatchet will be useful when Winter it’s coming.

Board up and reinforced door: This will prevent you getting raided specially if you don’t have Roman (he is the strongest guard) rushing is recommended, specially if your party is only women (Zlata is an exception) or elderly.

Trap for animals: Good for long term to get your own food, a good advice is get fertilizer when scavenging to get food faster and scavenging for food less a priority so build 2 as soon you can.

Herbal Garden > Vegetable Garden: A later game thing to build to get vegetables and get even more food making your party self-sufficient. However, you need A LOT of resources (materials, wood, pieces, lots of electrical pieces) to craft and upgrade.

Rainwater collector: Build 2 if your temperature is above 20 °C, 1 if temperature is less than 17 °C, don’t build if 12 °C (winter is coming) or if it’s winter as its useless and you will smelt snow instead (also if you bring food occasionally). Always get water everyday specially in later game.

Guitar: Only if Zlata is on your party, or also Roman/Katia as they play the guitar very well. This will make your survivors happier.


If you haven’t enough food for everybody feed them every 2 days to save food. Also try rush to upgrade the stove, you will save a lot of resources when cooking with the improved stove (even making Bruno less useful).


Avoid doing bad things as they make your survivors sad, if they get depressed they might either leave the shelter and stole your things, or suicide and make your survivors even sadder. If someone is sad, give him alcohol or put him to sleep for a day or two.


Instead try to do good deeds like helping neighbors and killing bad guys, they will be content and their movement speed is increased, also feeding them at normal state will make the, happy and well fed (even more speed)


Whenever you can, scavenge only for materials when you need to upgrade your shelter, if not try to focus gathering food or aiding, canned food is the best as its good as a cooked meal and you don’t need to waste materials to craft. Bandages and medicine are a must for emergency, if you have too many you can trade them with Franko for a very high value. Herbal meds are less useful but their value is still high for trading so get them too.


Get at least 10 books in your shelter. This will make survivors happier. Also watch out survivors addictions as if you don’t bring coffe or tobacco for certain characters they will become sad.


Always trade with Franko things that you don’t think you will need for what you really need like food or bandages/medicine if it’s a real emergency, if not trade for only materials, specially components and wood as this will save you several nights of scavenging.


Avoid dangerous places unless you have firing weapons and skill or you are very skilled for stealth kills. If you are going to massacre people, Roman and Arica are the best as Roman is trained in combat and Arica is best for silent kills, also because they both can backstab from behind. Boris and Pavle is also an option but only if you have firing weapons as Boris is strong and has the highest health but is slow and Pavle is better with hit-n-run tactic.
