Basic Info:

  • Malls are an excellent place to find a wide range of items; the only major items that cannot be found here are revivification syringes and fuel cans. As such, Malls are frequently used as safehouses and fortresses by survivors. Zombies often check inside (when they can get in), and organized zombie groups sometimes lay siege to them. They are listed as a Tactical Resource Point.

Ackland Mall is a four-block shopping mall in the suburb of Havercroft and was the scene of the Battle of the Bear Pit, The Ides Of March, Second Siege of Ackland Mall, Black Christmas Siege and the most recent War of the North West Frontier. It is the birthplace of the LUE horde, being the first place to come under the horde's siege (and be subsequently ransacked). This is also the only shopping mall with a Goth Clothes store. Lastly, this mall is the location of the tomb of Ron Burgundy, leader of men and scourge of Wes Mantooth.

Nearby NecroTech Buildings

There are no NecroTech Buildings in Havercroft, nor are there any in the neighboring suburb of Lerwill Heights.

The NecroTech Buildings within ten blocks of the mall, listed from nearest to farthest, are:

  1. The Stagg Building in Lukinswood (26, 47; distance 6-7 W, 2-3 S)
  2. The Nix Building in Barrville (40, 43; distance 7-8 E, 1-2 N)
  3. The Brennand Building in Shore Hills (30, 52; distance 2-3 W, 8-9 S)
  4. The Daubeney Building in East Becktown (26, 35; distance 6-7 W, 9-10 N)
  5. The Eagan Building in Barrville (43, 46; distance 10-11 E, 1-2 S)



The radio frequency for Ackland Mall is 27.50 MHz.

The North-East corner of Ackland Mall contains the mobile phone mast for the suburb of Havercroft. It is important to note that of all of the Malls and Forts, this is the only one with a phone mast. Thusly, holding the NE corner of the building is of vital importance to humans. In this respect, only the Herman Building is similar in being of both strategic and tactical value.

Sadly, this tactical advice was invalidated with the large buildings update making malls one building 2x2 large and internal defense is nearly impossible.

To update the mast status, please update the Ackland Mall Danger Report and alter the mast_status line based on the condition of the North-East corner of the mall.

the mall is destroyed all hope is lost I repeat all hope is lost --John Smith PhD 13:40, 10 December 2011 (UTC)

August 25, 2011

The mall is in serious jeopardy. SW and NW corners have been ruined, and lights are off throughout the mall. Many zeds are inside. Roy Thomas 20:30, 25 August 2011 (BST)

August 19, 2011

All corners lit, and good number of survivors, but zombies breaking in (3 inside currently). Some reinforcement would keep it going probably. --LocalGhost 08:12, 19 August 2011 (BST)

April 14, 2011

Low number of zeds, but no survivors inside --Cruzz 13:34, 4 April 2011 (BST)

April 4, 2011

Looks like most of the zeds got bored by standing around in the mall. Only a handful left inside and three more outside, but survivors take there time to get back and reclaim Ackland. --Cruzz 13:50, 4 April 2011 (BST)

March 30, 2011

A group of around 30 zombies have breached the mall a few times in the last days, but have been repelled by the valiant survivors housed inside. Today however it seems the zombies have succeeded in successfully bringing Barhah to the mall as 14 have made it inside and are clearing out section after section. 30 more are waiting at the breached barricades ready to barge in and claim any leftover branhz. -- Funkster 11:43, 30 March 2011 (BST)

Update: I HAD MALL, BUT THEN I EATED IT (all survivors either been killed or managed to escape, 28 zeds inside) --Krastavac 17:00, 30 March 2011 (BST)

March 02, 2011

Mall has been breached, around 15 zombies inside, over 25 more outside. Mall will be in zombie hands shortly. --DeathShad0 20:39, 02 March 2011 (UTC)

February 23rd, 2011

Mall is under heavy attack, but not a full-blown siege. Zombies are coordinated in that they are all attacking the SE corner. Breakins occur on a semi-regular basis, but there is a strong active player base maintaining the defenses, much like they were a month ago. We need fuel for the generators, though, only one corner is still up! --Thorgold 04:15, 24 February 2011 (UTC)

January 27, 2011

The mall is still under siege. We need some more zombie out here to oust the survivor presence.

January, 25 ,2011

There are at least 25 Zeds outside the bottom right corner of the Mall, Constant break in's are frequent but quickly cleared and barricaded back to EHB in short order....Good active player's here! join us!. Crispyjakal 22:59 25 January 2011 (GMT)

December, 10 ,2010

The mall is back in survivor hands with 'cades at EHB and zeds just starting to gather on the outside. All four corners generated and fueled, but the survivor presence is still low. More compatriots are necessary if the bastion is to continue standing. SPAO 21:05, 10 December 2010 (UTC)

December, 1 ,2010

From what I could tell the mall was completely trashed, no more than 15 zombies within the entire 4 blocks but in the surrounding area there were at least 30+. It seems unlikely that something will happen anytime soon.Dr Marty 01:54, 1 December 2010 (HST)

August, 3 ,2010

The Big Bash has brought a great horde, and more than 50 zombies sway and dine inside Ackland.--Black Tongue 00:28, 4 August 2010 (BST)

August, 2 ,2010

The Big Bash 3 is in town and there 15 of zeds in the mall

April 25

NW corner ruined. 2 zombies inside. All generators destroyed.
