Black Friday FOB
6 (or 8 with Sat-Comms)
Open Facility Slots
Black Friday is the only home site featured in the DLC Lifeline. It serves as the forward operating base (FOB) for the U.S Military in Danforth and extraction point for civilians as well as high-interest personnels of importance.
The player assumes control of the home site after arriving here for the first time, and it cannot be abandoned.
Location and EnvironsEdit
The base is located on Tyron Plaza former, in the Thornhill Square district at the south-west area of Danforth.
The base has 7 pre-built facilities:
- Perimeter Defenses
- Radio Post (upgrades to Sat-Comms)
- Landing Zone
- Mess Hall
- Ops Center
- Logistics (upgrades to Refrigerated Supply)
Watch Towers' function is replaced by two Guard Posts and 1 building rooftop. (These are not displayed as home-site facility slots, and cannot be interacted with.)
Base storage capacityEdit
Note: This is the capacity after the built-in Supply Room is fixed up.
- On the Barracks wall there's a poster with the link http://www.operationsupplydrop.org/. This alludes to the real-life program to deliver video games to American troops in combat zones and recovering in military hospitals.
- "Illegitimi Non Carborundum Mors Ad Te Venit" military motto are posted at this FOB. "Illegitimi Non Carborundum" is a humorous mock-Latin phrase meaning "Don't let the bastards grind you down."
- According to the dialog, the base is nicknamed Black Friday by members of Greyhound one, who find the zombie hordes similar to customers squeezing in shops during a Black Friday sale. Also, according to Vienna Cho, Black Friday is located in the old mall strip, which can be another meaning of its name.
