Ackland Mall
When Havercroft sends its people to reclaim Ackland, they’re not sending their best. They’re sending zergers that have lots of alts, and they’re bringing those alts with them. They’re bringing guns. They’re bringing claws. They’re life cultists. And some, I assume, are good survivors.

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)

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.
