Breaking News. The Knox Event infection is sweeping through Louisville.
— Diane, WBLN News

Louisville, Kentucky, also known as "Gateway to the South," stands as the largest city within Knox Country. Established in 1778, this metropolis is comprised of an array of neighborhoods, offering everything from tall high rises to dilapidated districts. As a major urban area, the city's vast commercial regions promise a massive abundance of supplies, but survivors should be wary of the exceedingly high zombie population that plagues its streets.


Louisville, as a city, encompasses a variety of settings. From its downtown area replete with iconic landmarks to its industrious infrastructure, the city's history is palpable in its structures and avenues. Due to its size and population, Louisville hosts a significant number of public services. This includes a major hospital, an expansive police station with an attatched prison, and multiple large fire stations.

Many of Knox Country's largest corporations have their head offices spread throughout Louisville. Including food chains Spiffo's and Jay's Chicken, fuel giants Fossoil and Gas 2 Go, and media such as LBMW and KnoxTalk Radio.


The outbreak of the Knox Event on July 6th brought swift military intervention. In anticipation of the impending crisis, the US Military began erecting fences and setting up fortified border posts, sealing off the city and establishing the Knox Exclusion Zone. By July 9th (the game's default start date) accessing Louisville became near-impossible bar a few guarded checkpoints. The city was quarantined due to the threat of the Knox Infection. The situation deteriorated rapidly, and by July 14th Louisville was completely overwhelmed by the Knox Infection.



Louisville has many districts that make up the vast expanse of the city. Everything from strip clubs to farmland can be found within its borders.

Central business district

The Louisville central business district takes up the majority of the North of the city. It includes commercial, residential, and office spaces. It's local university has led to a burst in high skill workers which can be seen in the number of offices and professional services throughout the city.

Residential districts

Louisville is home to multiple large residential districts. While some have their names known, most do not.

Notable named residential areas include Leafhill Heights in the South-West, and Evergreen Hill in the South-East.

Commercial districts

Louisville's large population has led to significant commercial districts opening, particularly close to major residential districts. Examples include the expansive Grand Ohio Mall, which is just one of the multiple malls and shopping centers that can be found in the city, and the entertainment district which can be found in the North of Central Louisville.

Industrial districts

Louisville has two main industrial districts. The first is large industrial estate in the North-West of the city, and includes the Fossoil refinery, multiple warehouses, and factories. With the second smaller industrial estate on the Southern outskirts of the city, made up of various factories. Other industrial areas do exist in Louisville, but these two are the main industrial zones.

LSU campus

The Louisville State University campus is located South-West of the city center, and is a highly populated region. It contains two main dormitories, two educational buildings, a staff office, a sporting center, a running track, and a football field.

This contains a guide on preparing for, entering, and surviving in Louisville

Louisville is the final frontier for any Project Zomboid player. It's high risk, and higher reward. But come unprepared and you'll leave with nothing... If you leave at all.

Should I even go to Louisville?

The first step is to decide whether you want to go to Louisville, and if so, what do you want to accomplish. This will alter your decisions and allow you to plan the best route.

There's no wrong or right answer to this question, it's completely up to you. Taking on Louisville is a big step in any zomboid players career, and one that everyone should make when they're ready.

What should I bring?

Whether you're new to the game, or a veteran, it's best to prepare for any trip to Louisville. It has the highest population of zombies, and even on default settings, the density of zombies can quickly overrun any player.

This is usually the make or break moment for any long trip. Louisville has lots of loot for the taking, but it's heavily guarded by zombies. For example, failing to take enough water can quickly lead to dehydration and death. I recommend the player gather these items before their trip, adjust based on your circumstances.

This is your lifeline, you need a good, reliable vehicle that isn't going to break down the second you get into Louisville. The bigger the storage the better. Consider bringing a trailer.

This goes without saying, you're likely already wearing the best backpack you could find. But if you're not, get at least a hiking backpack.

A nice fresh pot of soup or stew is good short term food. For a longer trip, still bring the pot, but also pack some long term food, canned foods are made exactly for this moment. Beans are excellent for getting calories up before you leave.

Ensure you have plenty of spare water. If you have the high thirst trait, bring double what a normal person would bring. If the water is already out bring even more. Finding water is not a guarantee.

I would strongly recommend bringing at least one of everything. Make yourself a duffel bag filled with medical supplies. Don't forget tweezers and suture needles. Spare beta blockers and painkillers never hurt either.

These can stay in the back of the vehicle. Or even one of your back seats if you have them. This gives you a chance to drive away while grabbing medical supplies should things turn for the worse.

Once again one of each main tool never hurt anybody. Better than turning back home because you forgot a screwdriver. But seriously, do not forget a sledgehammer, check before you leave.

So how do I get in?

There are three main entry points in Louisville, the main entrance via the Dixie Highway, the center checkpoint, and the Eastern checkpoint. Each of these have their various pros and cons, depending where you want to go, and what you want to do.

All entryways require a way to get through the border wall (usually a sledgehammer) in order to bring a vehicle into Louisville.

Dixie Highway

The Dixie highway is the main highway that runs throughout the vast majority of the map. It is a single road that leads all the way to the border of Louisville, and the Army checkpoint. This is the quickest way for the player to access the military gear stored at the army checkpoint, at the trade off of a high population of zombies.

When approaching Louisville via the Dixie highway, the player will begin to encounter obstacles. First a large crash on a bridge forcing the player to go via the rail bridge. Then increasing numbers of zombies until they reach another pile of cars blocking their way into Louisville. At this point you have a couple options.

  1. Exit the car, carefully making your way up to the hole in the fence to continue on foot
  2. Attempt to drive on the dirt around the pileup
  3. Make a path through the cars by either towing, or via metalworking.

Each of these options have their own risk factors the player should consider, factoring in their own skills, and current circumstances.

Center Checkpoint

The center checkpoint is a much quieter location for the player to enter Louisville, it can be accessed easily by turning off the Dixie highway just before the bends into the main entrance. Then following the road East until you reach your first left hand turn with matching road color. Then head North until you reach the border fence.

Once the player breaks through the fence, they have direct access straight into South Louisville, but will have less immediate access to loot.

Eastern Checkpoint

The Eastern checkpoint is again quieter for the player to enter Louisville, but is harder to get to due to its distance from major roads. The player can access it by following the instructions for the center checkpoint, but instead of turning they continue East. Keep traveling as far East as possible and take the last left. If you reach the end of the road turn around and take your first right. Then head North until you reach the checkpoint.

Once the player has removed the fence they can enter Louisville. Basic military loot can be found in the checkpoint. Continuing to travel North will bring them out into far South-East Louisville.

I'm in, now what?

Well that mostly depends what you came here for. Depending which entrench you came in you'll find yourself on one of two roads. The main highway running straight North into Central Louisville. Or the East-West road running across the entirety of South Louisville.

Both of these roads will have significant zombie populations. The Northern road significantly more. If you're looking for a fight, that's the way to go. Slowly work your way up the road taking out any zombies you come across. When working with large hoards, some players like to use fire. Zombies will set each other on fire and the player can lead them around until they die.

Use the project zomboid map to find the best route to your destination. Using vehicles and sledgehammers will attract zombies, but they're the best way to loot, try to clear any areas before entering, and always expect more.

Good luck, and remember... This is how you died.


  • Louisville is not available as a spawn location due to it being quarantined in lore until after the default start date.
  • The player can find many of the locations heard about in radio reports in Louisville, including the location of General John McGrew's speech at the border.
  • Louisville is expected to get at least one 'skyscraper' in build 42 as part of the height limit changes, as per this dev log.Future
  • In the 1990s, the population of Louisville was recorded at 269,063, as per Wikipedia.
