Area + 2
Train changeover and storage yard.
Train yards outside Union City were just another mean the city obtained its so much needed products. From teddy bears to custom-made car parts, all sorts of merchandise stored in freight cars arrived, were stored, sorted out and sent to a new destination or into the city. Not only that, but the locomotives were checked and given maintenance if needed. Nowadays, the only thing this cars will be waiting is rust to consume them and survivors to loot the cargo left behind.
- Junk, which can be recycled, as well as components are the most common find.
- Metal, wood and cloth are somewhat common here.
- Food and water are rare.
- Weapons, gear, ammunition and/or medical items are hardly found.
The level of a Train Yard is always two levels higher than the area it is in.
In Variant A, survivors start on one end of a road, with the Exit Zone on the opposite end. Most of the containers, as well as zombie spawn points, are located in the yards themselves and the station on the east corner of the map. This variant has 15 spawn points, with the majority of them located on the edges of the map.
Variant B is a bit more complex, as survivors must travel the maze-like setup to reach the Exit Zone. Four zombie spawn points are open freight cars while the rest of the horde comes from under the overpass or the tracks on the west side of the map.
For both variants, assault rifles are ideal but bringing in a shotgun or Light machine gun to provide either close-quarters or long range support is also recommended. Survivors should stick together all the time and avoid being close to the spawn points during a horde rush or Elite apparition.
