The Hoburbs is a suburban area located on the outskirts of Hoburbia. It is the home of garage sales, gated communities, mischievous middle-class kids, crazy hobos, a variety of pawnable items, and the famous Neighborhood Watch organization.


The only thing you can do in the Hoburbs is explore it.


For 5T, you can explore the Hoburbs for various items and nice little bonuses. As with the Red Light District and the Canbodian River, you need to be alive in order to explore it. It is not recommended to explore the Hoburbs while Zombified and dead, since you won't be able to win any of the fights you run into.
