"We arrived just in time to see the city being locked up. Cars fill the roads towards the city. Soldiers everywhere and ready to shoot anyone that does not comply their orders. Whatever the case, I'm just here to finish the research work and help to find a cure or treatment to this illness.
We took over a park at Brookvale, with several HERC soldiers guarding the perimeter and everything we need inside the park. We are not allowed to leave the facility, unless we must do some research work, no communication with the outside world and we have a curfew. Damn, I feel like I'm 14 years old again.

With the information we gathered we could instruct local law enforcement and soldiers in how to detect the infection and the elimination of infected individuals. We'll be staying here a few hours and leave towards Seattle, only a few HERC scientists and a part of the HERC paramilitary branch will stay here to analize and help with the research tasks.

The rest of the military personnel killed him before he could hurt anyone else, his body was disposed and, for the infected soldier, he was sent to observation. We now be able to study up-close this illness and see how it develops. For the record I'll start with it:

HERC soldiers and military personnel are relocating infected individuals on Phase 1, while individuals on Phase 2 are being disposed properly. By now, our only way to detect infection is by blood samples; this way, while accurate, takes too long and has put most on my team on the evac chores rather than the research task we were sent originally.

I cannot believe this, I mean... is just... unbelievable. Is like those B-horror movies about walking corpses. Report shows that subjects show uncontrollable rage, they seem to be driven by feral instincs; mainly the need of feeding, pale skin, low heart and respiratory rates.

The local sheriff asked the county SWAT team for support and they seem to be doing a good job gathering people here at the local high school. So far only 67 individual showed Phase 1 symptoms.

If you haven't seen it already, see Ecthel's post about this "splitting the weapon pages"
Pardon me if I'm wrong, but from what I am seeing, we have successfully split every single weapons page on the wiki - well, at least those that are in multiple games. After a month of mostly procrastination, step 1 is finally done!
Now, just to be clear - we are not done! There's still more to be done - we have to fix the links around the wiki, and we have to add redirects and remove the background from the weapon pages (It was decided at the last minute to leave out the background and keep it in the overview page instead). But I just couldn't resist.

When it comes to reverting vandalism, Wikia has a few built-in tools to help good, loyal users. The majority of Wikians are good people and mean no harm, but there are those who delight in turning pages into complete nonsense. We call them "Vandalizers".
All users are able to revert vandalism, much like all users can edit any page. The only exceptions to this is if:
- Your account or IP address is blocked, either by an admin or by Wikia Staff
- The page is protected and you do not have the privileges to edit the page (There are different protection levels... browse Wikia Help for that)
Either way, you can always lend a hand.
Anyways, the purpose of this blog post is to help users with reverting vandalism, so let's get to the point.

To whoever reads this:
I'll write all the notes I've found scattered through the city.

Votes are in, proceeding with split starting with Death Adder .45. Please provide feedback on them either in the comments of this blog post or on my Message Wall.
Currently, if a weapon is in multiple games, info for every version gets crammed into a single page. Personally, I think this is a messy and potentially confusing arrangement, which is why I'm thinking of giving each game's version a separate page.
As this is a pretty big change in terms of page numbers, I'd like to hear what the community has to say about it first before going through with it.
I'm thinking of doing something similar to the Fallout wiki (I'm open to alternatives, though), which has an overview page which describes the weapon's background, with all the gameplay info …Read more >

Hello The Last Stand Wiki.
Just wanted to let you guys know that I'm on vacation until I think around August 28 or 29. I'm typing this in my hotel room in Downtown Ottawa. I'll try and get on at least every night to see what I can do around here, but for the most part I can't get on in the middle of the day to clean up vandalism. In fact, it's been a busy August. Volunteering job for three weeks, and now this.

Someone in the AG DeadZone0 chat room posted interesting glitched junk items today...

Are you unable to connect to The Last Stand: Dead Zone on the Armor Games and Kongregate version? You're not alone.
I play on AG, so obviously I am affected as well. It seems that a number of users were unable to connect to the game servers since the last maintenance session. Some seem to be able to get on, seeing the comments section, but a number of people have been unable to connect for days.
Hopefully your food and water stocks will hold out. More on this story as it develops....

Hello Fellow Zombie Hunters, I am ZombieKiller37, member of Union-5.
As I was playing The Last Stand I came across a peculiar glitch. What happened was that I was just progressing through the game normally then I died because I made a bad choice in the day. I decided to look for weapons instead of survivors, I was at 5 survivors in the last few rounds of the game. So I paid for it in blood and Zombie Food, when I came back to the level to retry it and see if I could manage to survive I found out that I had a glitch. I am new here so I am probably not familiar with all glitches you know, but this one has popped out for me. The Glitch I had made me still ' dead ' and I could not shoot my weapons. Jack was laying on the ground, dead, watching …Read more >
It would be very nice with an official talk page concerning adding/editing the wiki, where you can give feedback, put questions, suggestions and discuss issues before messing with the wiki content. Just to get better communication here, without having to bug ppl on their message walls. I started posting in http://tlaststand.wikia.com/wiki/MediaWiki_talk:Community-corner but i see no feedback. I see Ecthel013 read it and used the info i put there, fine with me but some feedback would be even finer.

This page in a nutshell: Con doesn't look at this wiki. Post suggestions for the game in the Con Artist Games forum instead.
I keep cool (with an A/C on at full blast freezing me into an icicle), but I am getting annoyed right now...
Okay.... so what is The Last Stand Wiki?
There are two answers - one is simple and the other is longer. The short answer is: It's a fan-made wiki about The Last Stand series.
Somehow a lot of people miss the "fan-made" part, so it's necessary to use the long answer: It's a THIRD-PARTY wiki about The Last Stand series. It was created, and is run, entirely by fans (and strangers) of the game. Even those who don't consider themselves as a "fan" (more like someone who just plays the game because he/she is bored) contri…

Happy Independence Day to survivors from the USA, hope you guys have fun celebrating.
There's also limited edition buildings (including a miniature Statue of Liberty) and clothing (if you ever wanted your survivors to look like Uncle Sam) available for sale in the Dead Zone even if you're not from America, so feel free to buy some, even if it's just because you like the colors.Read more >

Hello, this is my first blog post :)
Now then on to it.
1.) Find an occupation that you like skill wise. If you decide to make your own, figure out what you want skill wise.
2.) Figure out what weapon type you want to use. Always keep a backup (ex: Firearms with a blunt backup)
3.) Find out what you want to put your points into, I recommend luck, it helps with getting criticals and loot.
4.) Figure out if you want a long game or a playthrough.
5.) Have fun, this is very important if you want to have a good time.
Please, no negative comments.

Pretty late by now (sorry guys, been busy), but if you haven't seen it yet, here's the preview for the Alliances feature. If you feel like joining or creating one, might want to get started on looking around for a group of friends or like-minded players.

After looking at the TLS:DZ Story Timeline and Jack's Diary Entries in The Last Stand 1, and the events in The Last Stand 2 and Union City, I've been wondering whether the two actually match each other.
First, let's use a point of reference. We know that in TLS1, the TV reception disappeared on day 15. This is day 43 on TLS:DZ Story Timeline.
43 - 15 = 28. Thus, Jack began writing on Day 28 of the zombie apocalypse.
That much can be said. What else do we need to debunk?
Jack held out in the middle of nowhere with his small group of survivors for 20 days, thus on Day 48 of the apocalypse, a group of roving military helicopters spotted them and picked them up. They were most likely headed for Fort Tran. However, in a rather unfortunate event, on…

A revamp of the current injury system is in the pipes. Instead of disabling the use of a survivor until a period of time has passed, injuries will instead reduce their maximum health (as well as other effects depending on where they're injured) and have to be healed using special Medical Items that can be scavenged or crafted.
See the preview here.
As a heads-up, Medics will be required to craft the higher-end medical items (possibly also required to actually treat the injuries), so if you don't already have one, make sure to get at least one before the update hits. A Leader with a high Medic stat doesn't count.Read more >

I recently received a suggestion to convert the compound buildings' Upgrade Level list into table form. Seems like a good idea to me, since it compacts the list by quite a bit, making it easier to find what you're looking for.

It's been one whole year since The Last Stand: Dead Zone was first released on Facebook (give or take a few days). The game has come a long way since then, hasn't it? Crafting, Traps, Active Gear... I hope that this rate of progress will continue for this year as well.
Now, a word (or several) from my in-game self:
"Ecthel Langstrom here, wishing every survivor a Happy 1st Anniversary.
Hopefully, we will continue to survive here, perhaps even thrive, for many more years to come. There may seem to be no end in sight, but do not lose hope.
Ecthel Langstrom, signing off."
Now that I've gotten that out of my system, I'd like to say that I also hope that people will continue to visit and edit this wiki for a long time to come.

Now on to gear level.
The first question is how modifiers (e.g. Hardened, Complete, Custom) stack with the base bonus. Given that we saw that bonuses for each level stacked multiplicatively for weapons, we can guess that all mod bonuses and the stock bonus for gear all stack multiplicatively. Can we confirm this hypothesis?
First, we note that bonuses that come only from mods, e.g reload speed on mods, don't increase by level. A level 20 Custom Extended Mags has the same reload speed bonus as a level 10 Custom Extended Mags. This fact will allow us to analyze mods in isolation. Glasses have no stock increase to accuracy. Clear Shooting Glasses have a listed +18.1% bonus to accuracy, which must come from the +5% from Clear and +12.5% from Shooti…

In this blog post I analyze weapon levels.
The first question: what are the base stats?
Do they depend directly on the quality of the weapon? I have two level 26 SCAR-Hs with no damage or accuracy mods. One is and one is . They have exactly the same damage and accuracy, so we conclude that quality has no direct effect.
With that settled, we can look for round numbers--humans love round numbers, so if we see round numbers somewhere, we can expect that that level is the "base level". Let's look at some unmodified SCAR-Hs:
All other stats remain constant. Clearly, level 24 has the round numbers. Level 24 is also the minimum level for the SCAR-H. Therefore, we conclude that stats are based on the base level for t…

I'm sure you've been wondering what that slot is for. Wonder no longer, for Con has revealed it's for Active Gear. See here for full preview.
Active Gear are items that must be manually activated, unlike Passive Gear (the kind we have now) which just affects stats. Initially, it'll just be grenades (explosive and smoke), but Con is planning on adding class-specific Active Gear as well as stuff like Riot Shields in future updates.
This is how they'll work:
- Equipped by selecting how many of the item you want on that survivor.
- Each Active Gear item will have a "Carry Limit" which restricts how much of that item a survivor can carry.
- Activating Active Gear is done by Right clicking it.
Some Active Gear will work in two stages instead:
- Right click to a…
Implementing Option 3 - Halt creation of new pages
Currently, we're giving each one its own separate page. While this worked well for the small numbers we had early on, the sheer number of different Rares and Uniques in existence are going to bloat the DZ Weapons and DZ Gear Templates, and I certainly wouldn't want to be the one making up Descriptions for all of them.
That's why I'm proposing alternatives. Please give feedback on them, votes or your own ideas in the comments below.
- Post all images of Rare and Unique items in galleries on those pages, similarly to what is done for the Schematics page.
