Florr.io Strategy and Guide – How to Survive the ??? Zone

Not a fan of the ??? zone? Neither am I. Check it out:

My florr.io high score
When I am a nOoB…

So, I have written a guide on how to survive the ??? zone…

First, Don’t underestimate the ??? Zone

Don’t be that foolish and try to nerf the ??? zone when you are only Level 10! You will be instantly killed by hornets if you do this. Have at least Level 30+ if you want to go for it.

If you reach Level 45…

Then the only place you can stay in is the ??? zone, so how to survive it without being killed by hornets.

See a Hornet? Kill on sight!

If you triggered a hornet to attack you, KILL ON SIGHT! Also remember you only do this if you have sufficient health and there are only a few hornets chasing you. If you don’t kill them fast and then you flee, you will only trigger more hornets from chasing you get into even bigger trouble!

Petals for attacking Hornets

The best petals for attacking hornets:

  • Egg – It sends out pet ants or beetles to kill the hornets that are chasing you
  • Rock/Heaviest – Have an amazing health and good to knock out the nasty hornets/ But they have a terrible recharge time
  • Stinger – Useful for killing a few hornets. Two hits and it will die
  • Fast/Twin/Triplet/Faster – Need a fast spinning speed to work. Knock out them easily.
  • Iris – One hit can kill a hornet but it takes a long time

Petals for Defending against Hornets

  • Wing – It fully protects you from being shot by hornets. Has a very fast recharge rate too. But it is a little bit useless on attack.
  • Rock/Heaviest – The amazing health of these two petals deflates the nasty hornet “missile” easily. But it has an extremely high recharge time.

Attacking Tips

“Circle” around the hornets if you don’t want to lose much health. then find the right time to kill them. It is a very effective strategy to kill hornets painlessly and I use this method in the game!

Defending Tips/Fleeing Tips

When you do not have sufficient health or there are too many hornets chasing you, FLEE! Keep moving when they are attacking you. DON’T STOP MOVING! It keeps you away from these “missiles”!

More Tips and Strategies…

Don’t Get GREEDY!

Don’t rush into a hornet hell because of some rare petals! I have experience on that and I was killed instantly. DON’T DO THAT! (If it is a square then go for it:) )

Don’t “corner” yourself!

Don’t go to the edges and corners of the map when you are chased by mobs. These corners and edges will block you from fleeing away and you will… die.

Include at least one rose in your petal slot

It is for regular healing for your flower and you can see that nearly all players will do that.

Also include some Roses in your inventory

Spare some inventory slots for Roses. When other players or mobs hurt you then you can use the Roses for faster healing.

Be careful when you are “saving” other players

Why I tell you this is because: When you are trying to save a player, and the mobs have successfully killed the player you have been trying to save. Then, the mobs will turn to… you.

Toliet Break?

Playing for hours and finally get to Level 60? If you don’t want your hard work to be abandoned by toilets, you may attempt some of the builds below: (not tested by me)

  • 7 Eggs + 1 Roses (Epic) – Let your own slave to kill the one that tries to kill you and Roses for regular healing
  • All Heaviest/Rocks – Make it hard for players and mobs to kill you because they need to bypass the rocky petals first
  • Comment below if you have other suggestion!


There is no denying that the ??? zone is like hell. (some call it hornet hell) And I can tell you that the ??? zone is even harder than now when I first started to play florr.io. The developers have made many adjustments on the ??? zone to make it easier. (Check the changelog) Well, try your best to survive it!
