We have to search in City Zero using black cards only. But it's a fallen city. There's literally not enough black cards in the game to enter the city and search.

Are we just screwed?

Aren't there end game upgrades you could use which allow someone to dumpster dive for cards that were just played? I would consider getting that into play.

The game is always shifting and changing so don't lose too much hope.

There's also a couple events or equipment (not sure off the top of my head) that make getting into rioting/fallen cities easier.

You're not screwed.

There's a whole bunch you can do. And remember you get to see what you're up against before you choose which characters to play, so you can adapt to what you know you have to do.

Firstly, it would clearly be a really good idea to build a military base in City Zero. That halves the number of cards needed to complete the search and enables military characters to get in without discarding anything.

Secondly, Rivals can recycle cards, as can the Soldier provided you put equipment on them first. That can help you get multiple uses out of black cards, Binoculars and especially the card for City Zero itself.

Then bear in mind you only really need one person to get into City Zero once, provided you can make it safe for them to stay there. The Soldier is OK unless there's an outbreak, and the Quarantine Specialist can make the city 100% safe indefinitely, provided they get in there quickly before any Faded arrive. Remember you can pass a card to your Co-worker without having to be in the same place as them.

Given the city is already fallen, if you get desperate you could consider the Nuclear Option. Taking that city out of the infection deck could make sitting there a lot safer.

Also, you can focus on the search to try and get it done before Epidemics move the target out of reach.


Having said all that... yes, your life is made more difficult by City Zero being Fallen. Such is life. Arguably, this is your penalty for letting it Fall, and you did have a strong hint it would have some special significance sooner or later!
