Riot Shields are a zombie-exclusive item featured in The Last Stand: Union City and a type of active gear in The Last Stand: Dead Zone.


The shield, in all its varying forms, has been used for centuries to protect its wielder from both melee strikes and projectiles. There are several modern incarnations, which are used by law enforcement agencies for riot control or high-risk breaching operations, depending on the specific model.

The Last Stand: Union CityEdit

All Riot Zombies carry these shields, which protect them from all types of firearms, but not from explosives and melee weapons. They are not available for survivors.

The Last Stand: Dead ZoneEdit

Riot Shields are used to shove enemies away in melee and can be planted in the ground to protect from gunfire. It restricts its wielder to using one-handed weapons like Handguns.
