Extended Mags are a type of passive gear featured in The Last Stand: Dead Zone.

Description[edit | edit source]

Higher capacity magazines for your currently equipped weapon.

Background[edit | edit source]

Ever since the first magazine-fed small arms were created, gunsmiths and manufacturers have always searched for ways to increase their firepower. These beefed-up magazines are among their many innovations; so whenever you're pinned in a corner by a hungry horde, you can feel free to spray 'n' pray with a little extra gusto.

Effect[edit | edit source]

Increases the ammo capacity of a survivor's equipped weapon by a percentage, depending on the Extended Mags' level and conditions. Variants can also alter reload speed by a percentage. It will also increase the equipped weapon's ammo cost, varying depending on how much the ammo capacity was increased.

Tactics[edit | edit source]

Obviously, this gear is completely useless to a survivor with a melee weapon, so it should not be given to them. They're also less effective on support classes such as the Scavenger or Medic than their favoured gear (Hand Wrap/Gloves and First Aid Kit/Medical Kit, respectively)

They are also useless on single-shot weapons such as the Van Buren, as they cannot statistically increase their capacity beyond 1 (increasing the capacity to 2 would require an increase of at least 50% if the increase is rounded up, and 100% if it is not).

The optimal weapon type for them are SMGs or Assault Rifles, due to their already high capacity magazines. The extended mags will increase it yet further, allowing them to lay down even more fire before having to reload, thus improving overall effectiveness.

Shotguns and rifles are also viable. Though their smaller magazine sizes mean they gain less of a benefit, their higher damage per shot means even 1 or 2 extra shots could have the effectiveness of several shots from an automatic weapon. It also means that the survivor wielding them will spend slightly less time reloading.
