The broadcaster, located at the lower-left of the HUD

The Broadcaster is a feature in The Last Stand: Dead Zone.


The broadcaster is located at the bottom of the playing area, at the bottom of the HUD. It can be turned on or off by clicking on the icon of the radio tower at the left of the broadcaster. It is on by default.

When enabled, the broadcaster will announce recent player activity around the Dead Zone, such as a player finding a Rare or Unique item, defeating another player in a raid, or failing a mission. It will also announce limited time offers from the developers, such as Community Tasks, packages, and events.
