Allow me to warm up the printing presses before I roll out this next edition of The Last Stand Wiki. And while I'm at it, you can look at the computer screen and see what I wrote.
- There has been a slight error in accounts banned for hacking. This error is slightly similar to an autoblock, I'm guessing. The issue here is, when an account is banned for hacking, the system would look for alt accounts, presumably via IP addresses, and ban those as well. Predictably, this results in a lot of innocent people getting banned. If you have been caught in one of these bans, please email Con Artist Games at supportdeadzonegame.com with the subject line of Account Suspended. Also remember to include your User ID code (e.g. armor1234, fb100, etc.); this can…

A lot has been going on this week at The Last Stand Wiki, and there's still so much more to be done! So, let's get the gears of this wiki turning even faster! But first...
It's been a fairly quiet week so far as official announcements go.
- A bug has been found with the new Raiding Practice mode! The White Flag book has been reported to stop working correctly if it is equipped during a raid practice. To re-enable protection, unequip, wait for the cooldown timer to expire, and re-equip again. Con Artist Games has been alerted of this bug, and hopefully a patch will be out soon.
There are a lot of things that we could use your input on! If you have been reading this wiki and want to help out, now's your chance! You don't need an account to edit th…

Two years later, how about that...
Been a long time since I visited Union City last, how's Dead Zone coming along? (Also, how is everyone here?)Read more >
So, what's buzzin', Dead Zone? Well, our American survivors certainly had their week... and so did the Canadians! Oh wait, hmm. Nevermind. Other than the fact that I am Canadian.... let's just get on with the news.
- Independence Day. Okay okay, looks like American
survivors have something to brag about. Just saying, the developers
are Australian. So...

Remember these? Yep, when I just go and dump all the images I got. All in one place, ready to be used in an article. After all, it's better for me to just upload all the images than to... oh, let's just carry on.
I need an image of American Alloy in one quantity, still. Will work on that; if you do have an image, please upload it!Read more >
The title says it all.Read more >
Alright guys, I'm going straight to the point:
I think Con has something waiting for those that complete 100% of the Achievements in TLS:UC. I'm talking about something special, like an Easter Egg of some sort. Most people that've played TLS:UC haven't completed 100% achievements because
1) they need Survival Kit, which a lot of ppl don't have, but I do (there are locked containers in Whistler's Forest that need to be lockpicked in order to complete some achievements)..
2) they don't know TLS:UC like I do!
So, if it turns out that there's no secret goody when you complete all Achievements, I won't mind, since I've always wanted to go 100% on the achievements just for the fun of it...
Btw, speculation for the Easter Egg (if there is one) is welc…

I figured I might start a "weekly news" blog, just to get more of a connection between the game and the wiki... since that connection seems a bit loose. Well, I'll just go underneath the desk and start messing with the wires there... ooh, what's this? ZAAAAAAAP!!!!
Anyways, here's the going ons...
- The "Deadeye" glasses item had their range increases at max craft way out of range. Con has announced that he has fixed this problem; all "Deadeye" glasses have been marked as "[ DISCONTINUED ]", and a new version is craftable. You can recycle your current "Deadeye" glasses to get your resources and fuel back.
It's been a fairly quiet week on The Last Stand Wiki, but nevertheless, it's not silent!
- We currently have 4 featured article nominations - Vote…

If you haven't known about it yet, Con has announced that Vintage weapons can no longer be traded in The Last Stand: Dead Zone anymore.
If you don't trade or don't have any vintages, then you're obviously not going to care. However, this has angered some old-time users and it even spiraled into a flame war.
If you don't know what a vintage is - they're basically weapons that had their level distributions altered by the developers, so they no longer drop where they used to. They may drop at higher or lower levels, depending on the situation. This effectively makes vintages "antiques", as once they are recycled or trashed, they cannot be obtained again.
What do you think about the decision to cut vintages off from trading and circulation? Pleas…Read more >

Preface/Prologue/Some introduction thingamajig
I did this mainly because I was forced to. But that doesn’t explain why I chose not to write about some random topic and focus in on a topic that would get me sent to the principal’s office in any normal school. I partially did this because of my devotion to video games. I figured that it would be the easiest to write something good about something that I liked, and so I picked this topic. After picking the overall idea, I had to narrow it down. I found a strong fan base in an interesting flas…

Part 1 and 2 are done. Part 3 is almost done.
As of right now it's going fine. I'm almost to the part for a raid on a HERC...wait, why would I tell you the storyline?
Fine, I'll give a hint.
- Jacob is alive
- Matthew is alive
- The city is barren at this point
- Jacob has a MP5K
- Elizabeth is dead
For this writing class my mum signed me up for, well, I'm now supposed to write something good and present it to show my lame skills. So.
I'm going to write a story that was inspired by my memories of TLS: UC. I'll share it with you guys as well, so we can all have some laughs at my lame skills. Yay.Read more >
The U.S. Military has an official plan ready in case a real-life zombie apocalypse breaks out. It wasn't for fun or for a joke - it's actually real. A document was written here, detailing the plans for the event.
- "The lengthy document, which aims to "preserve 'non-zombie' humans from the threats posed by a zombie horde," goes into great detail about the types of zombies military officials may encounter, including: evil magic zombies, radiation zombies, pathogenic zombies, space zombies and vegetarian zombies that stick to plant life, to name but a few.
- "The plan is based on three key concepts:
- Maintaining a defensive perimeter;
- Conducting operations that eradicate zombies; and
- Aiding civil authorities in restoring law and order."

Con has recently released a heavily pixelated image on Con Artist Games' Facebook page. What could it be depicting? Their next full-time project? An upcoming add-on to an existing game? A collaboration with another developer? Just a piece of art that they put up to draw speculation from their fans?
Also, the fact that it's only posted on the Con Artist Games page leads me to believe that it might not be related to The Last Stand series at all. Perhaps a sequel to Sin Mark? A new Warfare game? Something entirely different?
Please leave your comments and guesses either here or on their Facebook page.
EDIT: Con has recently released the unpixelated version, and I'm sorry to say that we were all setting our hopes too high. Here's the image.Read more >
Hello The Last Stand Wiki. Apologies for the short notice.
Due to another Air Cadet related activity (specifically a field training exercise), I will not be able to edit from May 17 to May 18, EST. Might be able to edit on May 18 very late in the day (of course, times are EST).
This trip is nowhere near as huge or long as the one I took in March, so I'll be back on pretty quick.
Thanks.Read more >
UPDATE: I'm Bahck!!
Bye guys, am really busy irl.. Won't have time for this wiki of ours. I will sometimes contribute anonymously, or maybe join back if Con makes TLS5..
Bye guys, keep making this wiki great!

Yes, the time when the sun comes out, the time when the laughter of playing children can be heard in the public parks, the time when the snow has all melted, leaving behind a crisp, green lawn. Yes, it's spring.
But not everything about spring is so enjoyable. It's the time when the frantic assessments and quizzes and exams and projects and so forth are handed out, as spring quickly turns into the long-awaited summer. Time to finish the school year. Is there a better way to end the school year than to hand out four projects, write five more tests/exams, present two assessments and to actually do your French work for once?
Ah, to clear the confusion on why this blog post was made: I might not have time to edit this wiki. Instead, I'm going to…Read more >
Now this is purely my opinion, here I'll be rating each and every gear in-game. It will be scaled from: Use to PvE, Use to PvP, Pros, Con.
Main feature: Increasing range. Can increase accruacy of weapon.
PvP: One of the best gear you could take to raiding. Although this could make you a bit of a glass cannon, PvP nowadays just became a game of range. Combined with a high range unique long rifle, you will have the upper hand. Generally a good gear for Raiding
PvE: One of the worst gear. Range increase isn't that desired, especially now that LR got their nerf, makes it less usable in PvE. However, it is still useful
Usable Weapon Types: Long Rifles, certain ARs.
General Summary: A wonderful gear to take for raiding, but not so great

Note: If you got fooled by the last announcement, don't be. It was an April Fools joke!
Anyways, as you may have noticed, the wiki has a new welcome mat for its visitors! After a month of work, it's ready to be showcased!
There are many differences between the new and old design. The first thing you'll see is the removal of the slideshow. The slideshow was pretty *meh*, seeing that it only paid attention to The Last Stand: Union City and The Last Stand: Dead Zone, with the first and second games completely ignored. It was also originally used as the featured article section, but it required an image of a specific size (670px by 360px or larger), and most articles didn't have an image of that size. After looking at some of the larger wikis an…Read more >
You might think HERC is like a criminal org but to me they had been ordered to do so. The virus was first reaserched by HERC. After they realised the danger of this virus,they took the virus affected patients and started a research for finding a cure.Your spouse in TLS:UC is zombie bitten, thats why she is locked in a cell and guarded with HERC personnel.
Now try to make sense of it, This virus, (maybye) has a infection rate of 90% which is the 5 billion people of the earth.The other 10% have a resistance system against the virus. Now divide the 10% into half you get 5% people who are going to be food for the zombies. The other 5% are like you and me who have got a will to fight against the virus.
After you finish TLS:UC a video appears-…Read more >
So, this past hour, i went to the public library to drop off some overdue books my friend had checked out a few months ago (he gave me the books because hes leaving the country today, and so didnt have time).
So, my parents were away from the house, so i took the transit bus. It was kinda packed with ppl going to work, but i found a seat next to this man. He seemed around mid-20s, and had on Beats blasting Linkin Park (seriously, it was so loud, even i could've sung along) plugged to his ipad. What surprised me even more was that he was on the TLS Wiki!!! He was browsing the compound and scavenger page! I felt so happy in that one moment of awe!
I wondered if he knew that the teenager he was sitting next to happened to be ranked #4 on the wi…Read more >
Well, I have found that while some buildings have many pictures of them existent, some of them do not. Therefore I embark on a mass project: the LOCATION INTERIOR PROJECT. This is intended to give users of the wiki an image to reference upon the interior so they know which building we're talking about (besides the article name and the exterior, which is good enough, but what if wiki users need answers fast without moving too far?)Read more >
Due to my MBTA ridership costs and coffee, I will not be taking screenshots of Whistler's Forest.

I do not have enough buck to buy th…
So guys, since some clothing articles are barely looked at (by editors and viewers alike), I propose we create more outfit pages and merge individual pages associated with that. More so the Military outfit, the HERC outfit and the Survivor Outfit. The article should include the individual items' Small intro, Description, How to Obtain, Effect(s), and the background should be at the top of the entire article.
The Military Outfit is currently under construction and can be found here. Please don't change the templates will be used.
For the Survivor Outfit, I think every part of it should merge in with the outfit article since it doesn't have an effect on game-play.
It's currently 6:30 AM and it's my birthday, so I hope I you guys know what I me…Read more >
Con recently announced on the Con Artist Games forums that he will be shutting down The Last Stand: Dead Zone on April 21, 2014. Copied from the forums:
This doesn't have to end. The Last Stand: Dead Zone is too popular to die this soon. If you would like to continue to care for your survivors instead of dooming them to an eternity of loneliness, please take a few minutes to sign the petition and ask Con not to bring the game down.
Thanks for your support.Read more >
It would be nice if we could build this thing for our scavengers...Read more >
Before we begin, I would like to apologize to Yahoo! Games players, who got to play The Last Stand: Dead Zone on their website on March 6, but we never actually announced it. Survive well!
Anyways, as some editors have requested, the wiki's home page is going to be revamped, tweaked, and redesigned. We hope that the new home page will look much nicer and be more organized than the current one.
However, as Rome was not built in one day, there's no reason this wiki shouldn't be the same. Thus, I have opened up a sandbox on my userpage and have begun developing the new home page there. The important thing here is that the page is not protected from editing. Anyone can edit it, and you are allowed to edit it. Be Bold!. For once, you, the community, h…Read more >
Well, hello guys, your (maybe) favorite Bostonian speaking again.
First, as a super-secret fact, I have a hunch. Anybody think that the interior of the subway train in Union City look like the EXTERIOR of the Toronto Rocket? Eh, just a hunch from my railfan point of view.
Now for the main content.
I, for the last few months, have been working on a TLS:UC/DZ spinoff. On one of the most famous games for LITTLE children-Rōblox. Now don't get me wrong, I'm not a noob, a 6-year-old, etc. I was just fiddling around with my old account that I hadn't used in a while and I realized the potential of me making a new zombie survival game. There haven't been any good ones in a year, and the ones people mostly make these days are all just...lame. I want to…

So after ages of trying to scavenge every single weapon condition, I finally came up with a (beta) list of what's minor, major, and just bad. The card, please.
- This was copied from my document on my mobile device. I simply slapped on some "nowiki" stuff so it wouldn't convert all my spaces into illegible junk. So if it's messy, it is.
- Not the whole thing is complete. It was impossible for me to get some weapon conditions due to luck issues. Sorry.
- The framework of this list was created by copying the text of
the wiki page for "weapon/gear quality/conditions" and so therefore
a lot of the text remains.
Attachment/Condition Affected Weapon Types Effect
Back Bored Shotguns +5% Accuracy
Choked Shotguns …

So, I have collected the pages this wiki could use some help on. But first, you might want to visit the Community-Corner. These pages needed minor help.
The Vintage update has left these pages in need of some changes (update with new level and stats).
- Baseball Bat
- Sledge Hammer
I've compiled a list of weapons, more so firearms, that need pictures.
Seeing how much you love this (not at all), I've added the "in action" list again, so here it is.
- Lawson .22 Pistol
- M1911 Pistol
- Manning AS Pistol
- Sportshot .45
- Tauron 9mm
- Sawn Off
- Tactical Shotgun
- Long Rifles
- FAL Battle Rifle
- Hunter Compact

I will be taking a short (okay, it's a week long) WikiBreak from all the wikis I'm a member on. Pretty much I'm on an "Internet Break", depending on the situation.
The reason for this is that, being a member of the Royal Canadian Air Cadets (okay, my mom forced me to join because I'm Asian, and 60% of the squadron I'm in are Asians), I was granted the opportunity to go to Parris Island, South Carolina, where thousands of U.S. Marines pass through each year. While this exercise was optional, my mom forced me to go on it (Man, aren't moms picky nowadays?).
I will probably not be able to edit from March 10 to March 14. Cell phones are permitted on the trip, but I'm going to need WiFi if I want to edit and not face my parents with a …Read more >
I never thought it would come to this. Two full years in the Dead Zone. And we have all survived this long. The game has come a very long way since its humble beginnings - with the Bounty Office, Alliances, and tons and tons of new weapons and gear. We've made incredible progress since then.
The wiki has changed a lot as well, with the return of me and several new members of the wiki. Each clothing item in the game now has its own article. Same with the food and drink items. The Rare and Unique pages have been reconstructed and tweaked as we now know that Rares and Uniques are randomly generated, making our previous list redundant and difficult to navigate through and even more difficult to maintain. We have a new admin to keep things in shap…Read more >

"Some parts of journals and texts the DZC found..."
It happened today; we lost 4 men while they were checking an abandoned hotel in The Bricks area. When we saw the infected coming from that building we left our men hopelesly outnumbered and alone.
Commander Maxwell says we cannot take time to cry over the dead or help people, that we have a mission to complete. That this whole 'outbreak' thing will be solved in less than a month. That we are doing the right thing. Fool! The things I've saw... the death, the violence.... it does things to people.

We're proud to announce the re-introduction of the forums on The Last Stand Wiki. The forums are a place for the community to get together and discuss wiki-related topics, or just about anything in general.
The forums were originally created along with the wiki when it was founded way back in September 30, 2010. There were a few threads created in the Watercooler forum, but other than that it was underused, and eventually forgotten entirely.
For a long time, the wiki never had a real place where they could just chat in. The chat room was also underused, and most editors resorted to article comments, blog posts, or message walls to get their voices out to the community.
Today, I'm happy to say that the wiki does have a proper meeting place, and…Read more >

So recently, um, I was cruising the weapon quality page. It was generally good, but as mentioned in the comments, there has been really no way to differentiate Minor and Major positive conditions. I mean, negative is obvious, but there's no clear mark to say if a positive attachment is okay or if its awesome. Until now. While clearing out my 95% full inventory in the Dead Zone, I noticed that some weapons have positive attachments that still keep it in the "common" category, like QUIET, and others, like SUPPRESSED, that make it into an "uncommon" weapon. Got me excited: maybe there in fact is a rating system in-game for "minor" and "major" weapons. I am going to look into it.
But I can't do this by myself. With a ch…
Today, after leaving my compound I stumbled upon two HERC troopers assaulting a young girl. I had my pistol and, since she looked almost my age, I shot one of them in the head. The other guy started to fire his rifle and took cover behind a car. I tried to shot him but I missed every shot.
When I ran out of bullets, he approached to me. He was about to kill me when a rain of bullets fell on him; some militia men. The girl was with them and helped me up. One of them apporached and congratulated me for saving the girl and offered me a place to stay for the night: I accepted.
I knew I wouldn't survive the night alone, but I'll stay with them just for this night...
After the night, the girl came and said someone wanted to talk to me. Shannon, th…

Another year is coming to an end here in the Dead Zone. There's snow on the ground, festive cheer in the air, and Infected Santa's come to town, finding out who's naughty or nice. Guess the zombie infection doesn't change everything about a person. Be sure to collect the gifts he's dropping if you run across them, someone's offering keys and a special reward to everyone who does. As a final note, my sources indicate that this course of events will last until the last day of the year, so you better watch out and not get caught sleeping.
All the changes to the game are summarized here. The most important changes for this wiki, of course, are the new items and areas, as well as the weapons that had their levels changed. Please help out with th…Read more >
Did you make the naughty list this year? Well, that's too bad, although that lump of coal could be used for the fire, so don't complain.

Was looking at some of the Compound Structure pages, and noticed that the table for Upgrade Levels was pretty cluttered on some of them. I'm thinking of trimming them down a bit, and this is what I came up with using the Level 1 F.U.E.L. Generator (one of the most cluttered) as an example.
This is still open to further alterations, of course, just leave your feedback and suggestion(s) in the comments below. If you think that this is unnecessary, then let me know in the comments as well.

So I saw some "thing" today. It was around midnight and was woken up by somthing. "Just a rat" thats what I assumed. Boy was I wrong. I grabbed my assualt rifle and went outside. What I saw was the most terrifiing thin I've ever seen. It's legs we're long and thin. Covered in what I can only describe as hair. It's glowed. I was terrified. To Terrified to even scream. I just looked at me. Then it ran. I fell backwards and ran back inside and shut the doors. I've attached a drawing of what I saw. I don't know what it is. I'm terrified.
