The Containment Arc-Burn 1600 is a melee weapon featured in The Last Stand: Dead Zone, introduced during the Containment update.

Background[edit | edit source]

An incident involving the infected at one of HERC's outposts resulted in the creation of this weapon when one of the operatives waged a highly successful battle against the escaped infected and credited his success to a new advanced electrical attack device that delivers high-voltage electrical lightning-like bolt attack that shocks and fries anything it touches.

Laboratory demonstrations are a poor substitute for actual field reports so HERC has issued it to their newly recruited operatives if the necessary parts can be found.

How to obtain[edit | edit source]

Recycling products[edit | edit source]

Tactics[edit | edit source]

Possessing a decent reach, high knockback, and fast attack speed, the Arc-Burn nevertheless suffers from a high move speed penalty and a low damage per strike, making it a poor choice against hordes of zombies. It is best used with other weapons that can counteract the Arc-Burn's poor stats.

Recommended gear[edit | edit source]

  • Vests to increase the wielder's health, allowing them to last longer in the horde. Some variants also boost the damage done by the weapon.
  • Shoes help to mitigate the movement penalty.

Pros[edit | edit source]

  • Very High Attack Speed
  • Good Reach
  • Very High Knockback
  • Very Accurate
