Used byEdit

The Last Stand: Dead ZoneEdit

Fuel Can Game

A typical jerrycan of Fuel in the Dead Zone.

In this game, Fuel is a premium currency that can be used to purchase items from The Store and to speed up building construction/upgrades, the return of survivors from missions, treating injuries, and recycling with the Recycler. Also, crafting or upgrading most items requires a certain amount of Fuel to be spent. Fuel is also required for Trading with other players.

Fuel can be scavenged in small amounts during missions, generated using Wood, Metal and Cloth with the F.U.E.L. Generator, completing certain tasks, or via raiding. A fixed amount can also be obtained by clearing the junk piles scattered around the compound. It can also be purchased directly using Facebook credits (Facebook), Kreds(Kongregate) or via credit card (Armor Games).

Several Achievements are associated with scavenging Fuel, namely Fuel Finder, Petroleum Picker and Gas Giant.

Fuel lootingEdit

There is a cap on the amount of Fuel that can be scavenged per day, that changes based on level. Once this cap is reached, Fuel cannot be found until the cap resets, which appears to be at 12:00AM GMT (midnight). The cap varies depending on certain undisclosed factors. It may depend on the level of the Leader, the area scavenged and/or the amount of time in between log-ins. The developers have not issued a statement to confirm or deny this, although they confirmed that the cap exists via chat on October 14, 2016.[citation needed]

Fuel can be found in any searchable location in the Dead Zone. It is randomly dropped in certain eligible containers (e.g. footlockers, desk drawers) that may be present in the selected location. While the drop rate (possibly 5% - 10% per eligible container) for Fuel resource items is unaffected by level, the type of the drop is affected. Certain books, like Peak Oil, can also affect the maximum cap on Fuel drops.

Fuel Drop TypesEdit

  • Level 1 - 4: Bottle of Fuel (+1)
  • Level 5 - 9: Container of Fuel (+3)
  • Level 10 - 14: Jerrycan of Fuel (+5)
  • Level 15+: Cans of Fuel (+10)

When the F.U.E.L. Generator was first introduced, players reported that fuel would only drop inside a certain level range below the player's level.[citation needed]

Fuel productionEdit

Wood, Metal and Cloth can be converted into Fuel using the F.U.E.L. Generator that becomes available at Level 10.
