Stepladder to Success is a Mission challenge book featured in The Last Stand: Dead Zone.


"Getting a job done quickly will push you to the top much quicker than if you'd taken your time."


There is no elevator to success, but you don't have to take the stairs either. Never hesitate to do something — just go for it and get the job done as quickly as possible. Do whatever it takes to get the job done before everyone else. There is no elevator, but the stairs are too slow. The solution? Get a ladder. You'll be number one before you know it!

Can be found in the bookshelves of people that skip breakfast, arrive at work three hours before their colleagues do, and retire at the age of 40.

How to obtainEdit

The book reduces the time available during missions while simultaneously increasing the amount of XP gained.
