For elite infected, see Zombie#Elite.

Rare items are a type of item featured in The Last Stand: Dead Zone. They are rarer and typically more effective than Superior and Elite items, but less so than Unique items.


Heavily customized variants of existing equipment, these items can be rather difficult to find in the Dead Zone. Those survivors fortunate enough to obtain one or even several will have a much better chance against any zombies and/or raiders they might encounter.

Rare items can be scavenged during missions in the Dead Zone, or found in various supply boxes. Additionally, earning 150+ points in the Raid on Union Island guarantees one as part of the Raid Haul. The background color for Rare equipment is a blue-gray colored bounding box with a blue and red grunge design behind the weapon. It also features light blue lettering over a darker blue banner in the name display.

As they are randomly generated, Rare items may share the same name despite having a different base item and stats.
