The Ranger Station is a first base in State of Decay. It is a single-room house with a water tower next to it that acts like a Survey Spot.

Description[edit | edit source]

Located by the lake in Mount Tanner, the Ranger Station is a prime location during the tutorial. After being attacked, Marcus Campbell and Ed Jones head here to find out about the situation. Here, they encounter Thomas Ritter, Wendell Higgins, and Sheila Brookstone.

Missions involving the location[edit | edit source]

Facilities[edit | edit source]

The Ranger Station has a Medical Area and Storage Area.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • The Ranger Station is not considered a base as it does not have a defensible perimeter and the player does not control it.
  • Once the player is able to relocate to a new home base, the Ranger Station is listed on the map as a possible home location. However, when the player stands inside it, Survivor population and Building Material requirement is not shown like other potential home sites; attempting to relocate here results in the character saying "Impossible" and no move is made.
  • When the player returns here during the mission "Memento", the Ranger Station and the area surrounding it often become very heavily infested.
  • When starting a new game of Breakdown DLC on level 1, the player will see Lily inside the Ranger Station along with a supply locker if the player travels up there before choosing their first homesite.
