The Last Stand 2 Walkthrough

The second game in this thrilling series, The Last Stand 2 is everything you could want and more out of a zombie game. The graphics are entertaining and continuously changing so the game never feels boring or stale. The action is fast paced and intense. The difficulty level is high but not impossible so anyone of any skill or experience level can enjoy it. Beyond that, the game actually challenges you to think a little bit. It isn't all just shooting zombies which is what makes it so appealing to a wider audience.

The story behind The Last Stand 2 is more detailed than the first which makes it a bit more engrossing. Most zombie games give you the same basic premise - hold off the attacking waves of zombies and live to see another day. Fail that mission and you'll become one of them. This one goes a little bit further though; offering a bit of a back story. When you begin the game you find out that it's been one month since the last game ended and there are still zombies everywhere. The mainland is being sealed off so if you want to make it out alive, you'll need to make it to the last boats and aircrafts that will be taking survivors off the mainland. You only have forty days to make it to Union City and onto one of those boats or planes. Getting there is going to take quick shooting, a good strategy and a little patience. This isn't an easy game to get through for most newcomers or for those who have only a moderate amount of experience with this sort of game. More experienced players, however, will probably find it quite a bit easier and might even find that it's a little too short. With forty days and nights to play through this one is twice as long as its predecessor but it's also incredibly addictive. If once through the game isn't enough, play again. Try to collect all of the weapons. You might not be able to do it in the forty days, but keep trying and you'll get them all. The game doesn't end when the forty days is up. If you make it to Union City in time, you'll be able to escape. If not, things won't go quite as well for you.

All that stands between you and the zombies attacking you in The Last Stand 2 is a make shift barricade you've build out of whatever materials you can find. As you progress, though, you can find traps, new weapons and other survivors to help you in your struggle. In addition, you'll need to find supplies that will enable you to travel so you can hopefully make it to Union City on time. If you don't find all of the supplies you need, you won't be able to move on. Searching for new weapons, survivors and supplies is done during the daylight hours. The daylight hours will also help you to repair your barricade if it has been damaged by the zombies. You have twelve hours of daylight to use in total. How you use those hours will be entirely up to you. If you've taken a lot of damage to your barricade, it's a good idea to use some of those hours to do repairs. If you would rather spend those hours searching for supplies, weapons and survivors, you can choose to do that as well. Remember though, searching does not necessarily mean you will find something. Make sure you have a sturdy barricade or are good with your basic gun just in case your search comes up empty. Ideally, you'll be able to find a way to balance the use of your hours so you're able to repair your barricade as much as possible while still finding new items and survivors to help you fight. A strong barrier is good, but only if you have the firepower you need to take the enemies out before the destroy it. Alternatively, you're going to have a very hard time fighting off the zombies - regardless of your weapon - if you don't have a decent barricade; especially later in the game. You don't have to have your barricade at one hundred percent if you have decent shooting skills, but less skilled shooters need to have their barricade as strong as possible.

The hours screen in The Last Stand 2 is completely different than the hours screen in the first game. Because of that, figuring out how to use the hours screen is going to be a bit difficult for those used to the original game. Instead of just being presented with a list of your options to spend your hours on with clickable arrows to select how many hours you want to spend on each option, you're instead shown a map with any buildings you can search outlined in black. Any buildings you're not yet able to search are shown in a lighter gray outline. When you hover over each building you're able to search, the type of building and the number of hours it will take you to search that building will be pop up beside your cursor. Make your decision based on what type of buildings you're able to search, what you're looking for and how long it will take you to search. To the right of the screen, you'll see the word 'repairs' with a box that shows '0' below it. On either side of that box, you'll see arrows. Click on the arrows to select the number of hours you want to spend on repairs. Each hour you spend on repairs will restore five points to your barricade. Make sure you choose wisely. These hours and how you spend them can mean the difference between life and death. once you've made your selections, you'll be taken to a screen that will show you your results. Look over the results and see how you did with your hours. Any supplies, weapons or survivors you found will be shown here.

If you've found weapons or survivors while searching in The Last Stand 2, you will be given the chance to use them in the screen following the results screen. The right side will show your current weapon as well as any survivors you've found. On the left side of the screen, you have your traps. If you've found any traps, they'll be shown on the left side of the screen. You can then click 'setup traps' to place the traps you've discovered anywhere you would like to. The best bet is usually to place them as close to your barricade as possible. This allows you time to take the zombie out with your weapon but provides a handy backup in case you miss. Any weapons you've found will be on the floor. Click on them once and drag them into position on the right side of the screen. You can either choose the new weapon as your weapon, your backup weapon or you can arm a survivor with it if you have any survivors. Arming your survivors is a great idea assuming you've found enough guns and have survivors to begin with.

Overall, The Last Stand 2 is an excellent zombie game that combines the fun of zombie killing with the intrigue of strategy games. That unique combination is really what makes this game so fun. While it might be a hard game for beginners to get through, it's well worth the effort to finally escape at the very end. The important thing to remember about this game is that those hours you are given are important. You'll need to use every single one of those daylight hours the smartest way possible if you want to survive the night. Shooting skills are important, but so is finding good weapons, survivors to help you out and supplies to use to move on to the next place. It's also important to make sure you do any repairs you need to do to keep your barricade strong, but remember, if you have good weapons and a few survivors backing you up, you don't need that barricade at one hundred percent. Repairs will help, but take time to search as well. It's the only way to make it through the game.
