A hardware store
Area - 1
The Hardware Store is a type of location that can be searched in The Last Stand: Dead Zone.
Description[edit | edit source]
Good source of resources for construction.
Background[edit | edit source]
Hardware stores are a common sight throughout North America, though not as common as they used to be. Before the outbreak, they sold a large variety of household hardware ranging from electrical supplies to keys, along with some building supplies, which makes them the first port of call for survivors in need of construction materials.
Possible finds[edit | edit source]
- Wood, metal, cloth, construction-related components and household junk are common.
- Construction-related melee weapons like hammers can occasionally be found.
- Food, water, other types of weapons, and gear are rare, but can sometimes be found.
Level calculation[edit | edit source]
The level of a hardware store is always one level lower than the area it is located in.
Tactics[edit | edit source]
Hardware stores are small and only have two zombie spawns, both of which can be covered by a survivor carrying a medium-ranged weapon, such as an assault rifle or a melee weapon. Generally low risk, a mission in a hardware store can easily be completed by only two or three survivors, as long as they stem the flow of any zombies and scavenge quickly.
