Gear is a category of items found in The Last Stand: Dead Zone. Each survivor can only equip one Passive Gear and one type of Active Gear which does not exceed his/her own level per loadout. Multiple Active Gear items can be carried if they're the same type, limited by the Carry Limit of that Active Gear type. A Carrier Harness can increase this Carry Limit.
The effects of Gear are determined by its level and any conditions it may have. They are presented as a percentage and calculated as follows:
- Every Gear item provides a base bonus, depending on its type, e.g. an Extended Mags item provides a bonus to Capacity. This bonus scales with the item's level.
- Should the items have any conditions, any additional bonuses or penalties they provide are added to the base bonus, e.g. 'Damaged' prefix decreases Capacity by 2.5%, while 'Mid' increases Capacity by 5% instead. These additional bonuses and penalties do not scale with the item's level.

All Gear items are recyclable and disposable. Gear can be crafted at the Gear Bench with Schematics, adequate components and Fuel, or upgraded using only Fuel. Gear can also be obtained through scavenging and completing certain tasks.
