Official Description[]

Bosshp bg left ampsuit

David Black’s AFC army has overcome the difficulties and succeeded in entering the Vanguard headquarters to investigate the incident that happened there.

However, the intense battle that they had before entering the headquarters resulted in the death of lots of people and the injury of Erika, who is like a daughter to David.

Meanwhile, Norman was monitoring the situation through closed-circuit cameras, and he was thinking of an idea to escape with the help of David Black's army. Norman sent AMP Suit to the AFC army to support them as their military strength has decreased…

David Black secured the munitions factory facility inside the headquarters as a strategic foothold to brace up for battle and fought against the zombies.

An intense battle has begun that decides the fate of the army!


  1. David Black's forces managed to enter the base, but suffered heavy losses in the battle against the Rusty Scorpion. In particular, when Erica is seriously injured during the battle, David decides that it is impossible to proceed further and settles down at the military factory facility inside the base and prepares the ranks.
  2. Norman, watching all this in a closed circuit, sends an armsuit to help them, but an Infected AMP Suit arrives and attacks David Black.
  3. The infected AMP ssuit kidnaps Erica and runs away, while David Black is puzzled by Norman's bizarre behavior and heads to the Vanguard Company's defense facility, the Panic Room.
  4. CF. Mad Mechanic is an infection of the Vanguard Company's AMP suit, and the original AMP suit was made for support rather than military purposes. Originally, it was equipped with a flamethrower and a small laser to secure an access route for cargo or soldiers, but after being infected with a virus, it is used to attack humans. As a model that has already been developed, many exist within the Vanguard Company.
  5. CF. It's unclear why Mad Mechanic kidnapped Erica, but David Black is convinced by his intuition that Erica has something special about her.


Protect the main computer in the munitions factory and wait for backup.

  • Threat means an expression of an intention to inflict pain, harm or punishment.
  • This is the first Zombie Scenario map that consists only 1 round.
  • This is the first Zombie Scenario map that introduces a new gameplay: Defense. The mission is protecting Erika.
  • An unconscious Erika can be seen inside a chamber on the second floor of the tower. Later, she will be kidnapped by another AMP Suit after the players have destroyed the previous one.
  • The alarm sound is taken from Half-Life.
  • Sometimes, this map gets a bug that after zombies and the boss destroyed the main computer, the game does not end (the Wall HP runs out and counted as Round Failed). The zombies still attack the main computer while only boss and Ganymedes attack players. The players can use this bug to defeat the boss easier.
  • Until now, this is the only Scenario map that shows the radar in game.
  • Psycho and Voodoo Zombies do not appear in this map.
  • During its first release in South Korea region, it caused severe instability issues which rendered the game almost unplayable. This still occurs but in lesser magnitude, since it's a common issue as more entities spawns and models are used the latency increases in consequence.
  • A bug which renders the AMP Suit stuck can be achieved by standing on the spot where it lands - The player must lead all the way until it makes contact with the corridor entrance (see Gallery).
