— In-game description

West Point is a town in the state of Kentucky, in an area known as Knox Country, and based on the real-life West Point, KY. West Point is located south on the Ohio River, north of Muldraugh, east of Riverside, and south of Valley Station and Louisville. Dixie Hwy (Route 31W) runs through the southern area of West Point and curves north.

Overview

West Point is the westernmost spawn town, with Louisville only a short drive away. However, it is one of the most dangerous areas in all of Knox Country. This due to a large population of zombies spread throughout the town, combined with a relative scarcity of weapons and large open areas. Spawning in West Point is not recommended for new or intermediate players.

West Point is an overall hard difficulty town, and widely considered to be one of the hardest places to survive in all of Knox Country. Large amounts of zombies can be found practically everywhere, which can be an especially big problem in the suburbs due to the lack of reliable spawns for high-quality weapons, even more so if players choose this town as their spawn town.

Despite the high difficulty of surviving here, loot is relatively sparse and often not much more than most other towns would provide. However, the one aspect that West Point excels in is firearms. There are several areas where they can reliably spawn, and ammo is often abundant. Some key points of interest in West Point are the Police station, the hardware store, the gun store, the factory, and the American Tire location.

Districts

West Point can generally be divided into two districts:

Suburbs

The suburbs occupy the eastern side of town, and are where most character spawns are located. The houses tend to be rather large, and do commonly feature garages. However, any and all weapons gathered here are often only moderately effective at best, and near useless at worst. This is a serious problem, considering the fact that the area is swarming with multiple large hordes of zombies that can easily overwhelm the player if they are under-equipped, which will almost always be the case if the player spawns here. Be careful.

Downtown

Downtown occupies the majority of the western side of town, and is where the best loot is located. However, these locations are sparse and spread far apart, meaning that in order to reach any valuable loot, the player must fight or sneak through even more zombies than were present in the suburbs. The cramped alleys and enormous zombie population can make a wrong turn fatal. Be careful.

Strategy

  • It is not recommended to spawn in West Point under most circumstances, unless considered a challenge and/or player wants to go to Louisville. It is also a difficult city to navigate.
  • The biggest danger in West Point is the lack of weapons. Due to the high number of zombies and low amount of high-quality weapon spawns, even players who venture into West Point with many high-quality weapons may be left defenseless due to the sheer number of zombies that can take a toll on weapon durability.
  • Characters with low combat skills, or that rely extensively on stealth, will be at a severe disadvantage in West Point. There are too many zombies to effectively sneak around.
  • Using a vehicle or firearm in West Point is ill-advised, unless the player is ready to fight hundreds of zombies at once.
  • It is not recommended to rely solely on melee weapons in West Point, unless the player's weapon and nimble skills are very high. fire bombs and Molotovs are highly effective against the large groups of zombies that form in this town.
  • If the player is spotted by the helicopter while in West Point, retreat as far and as fast as possible, as the sheer number of zombies in the town will overwhelm any survivor, no matter how prepared they are.
