Area + 1
Large urban residence.
These apartments were once homes for many happy families, who were content with outdoor barbecues and get-togethers with other neighbors. Now they are abandoned husks of a former life gone; the dark abodes of zombies who stalk the grounds in search for those who now seek scraps of anything useful or perhaps, a safe place to survive in this Dead Zone.
- Plenty of Food and household junk.
- Other resources, Medical Items, and gear can be found in smaller quantities.
- Weapons are scarce, but can be found from time to time.
The level of this building is always one level higher than the area it is located in.
The first variant is just a scale-up Residence with 4 infected spawn points. Survivors with assault rifles can easily guard the entrances to the rooms and hold off any incoming infected. If manpower and/or firepower is an issue, however, sticking together and moving room by room is a good option.
Second variant contains 4 large rooms connected by a T-shaped hallway. There are 6 infected spawn points — one in each room and two more at both ends of the hallway. If there are not enough survivors, it is best to move the team room-by-room instead of separating them.
Third variant is a large house with a massive living room/kitchen combination, surrounded by smaller rooms. Keeping survivors together is the key to success, and all survivors should follow the scavenger for maximum protection. Assault rifles and shotguns should be used together due to the varying room sizes.
- The texture of the walls may change from mission to mission, although the layout generally remains according to the variant.
