The Last Stand: Dead Zone Survivor Class Type
The survivors in the Last Stand: Dead Zone can be divided into several character class categories: Leader, Scavenger, Fighter, Engineer, Recon, and Medic. We will go into each of these classes in detail to help you understand what they will do for you throughout the game play. It should be noted that once you have determined their Dead Zone class type, you will not be able to change it at the time of writing. The ability for the survivors to change class is to be updated in the near future. It should be noted that you cannot determine the stat points other than the leader.
Leader Stats and Skill
The leader has 5 stats – Fighting, Scavenging, Engineering, Medic, and Recon all start at 7 stats points. The leader is the first survivor in the Last Stand: Dead Zone which is you. It is more or less a jack of all trade that can be built into any kinds of character class. We recommend you to focus building the stat toward fighting for it to deal more damage for your survivor team within the Last Stand: Dead Zone.
Scavenger Stats and Skills
The Scavenger class comes with 5 stats – Improvised Combat, Ranged Combat, Health, Luck, and Scavenging. This class is the best class to be used inside Dead Zone missions because they can quickly gather and gather the resources that you need inside the missions. For the Last Stand: Dead Zone scavenger, you want to focus his stat toward luck and scavenging to improve their gathering speed. They are essential for you to fully gather the Dead Zone resources during missions.
Fighter Stats and Skills
The Last Stand: Dead Zone fighter class is focused with dealing damage to the infected. The fighter class has 5 stats: The fighter has the highest health, and should be in every major battles against the zombies. Every compound needs a couple fighters to be able to function effectively.
Engineer Stats and Skills
The Engineer survivors have the highest skills in improvised weapons with second highest health points. The engineers also have the strongest melee attacks which makes them really good tanks in tight areas. However, their penalty or weakness is that they have weak ranged weapon yielding skills.
Recon Stats and Skills
Recon are the scout type of unit class in Last Stand: Dead Zone. Scouts have low amount of HP with the fastest moving speed. This makes them a very fragile unit to travel to and from locations. Because of their scouting tendencies, it is to be able to move them around to avoid being ambushed by the undeads. Their speed allows them to back up any other Last Stand: Dead Zone units even with a distance.
Medic Stats and Skills
Medics are the only healer in Last Stand: Dead Zone besides the compound leader. Healing is pretty much the only strengths that medics have, their have weak attacks as well as weak health points. You will need to group them together with other fire power survivor classes such as fighters and engineers. For later game play, you will need medic to heal your survivors in the heat of battle to avoid any deaths and injuries.

How to Get and Attract More Survivors
You can get more survivors by keeping your Last Stand: Dead Zone happy, security, and comfort level. By fulfilling all of the requirement, your compound will be able to get additional survivors into your team. Therefore, it is essential for you to upgrade the different resource buildings, to attract the maximum amount of survivors possible in Last Stand: Dead Zone.
Note on Survivor Weapons Specialty
To fully maximize the damage potential that your Last Stand: Dead Zone survivors can do, make sure that you equip them with the weapons that they are specialized in. By equipping them accordingly based on the weapon specialty, they will deal additional damage.
The survivors can earn EXP when they remove junks inside the compound and kill zombies. However, the leader can also earn EXP from missions completed by the other survivor teammates. The levels for the different survivors will increase stats toward their area of expertise. For example, scavenger class will receive additional scavenging stats when they have received level up bonus. It should be noted that whenever a new survivor joins your compound, his or her level is scaled from your leader level. Thus, you will receive and attract higher level Last Stand: Dead Zone survivors as you level up your leader.
Survivor Food and Water Ration
It should be noted that each of your Last Stand: Dead Zone survivors will consume 8 units of both water and food per day. Therefore, in order to gain more survivors, it is essential for you to upgrade your vegetable garden and water collector if you want to advance further into the end game play of Last Stand: Dead Zone.
The Best Survivor Class Make Up
Depending on the situation, you have to deploy different types of unit classes based on their strengths and weaknesses in Last Stand: Dead Zone. Because each class has their specialty, you want to group them to get the best out each of their abilities.
Some great teams include fighters with medics, with scavengers to collect the items. Scouts and engineers are less important in terms of group together, however there are still situation where they will come in handy.
