"HOME. Creates an outpost in the building you are currently standing inside."

Establish Outpost is a radio call in State of Decay, Breakdown and Lifeline. It turns an indoor location into an Outpost.


  • In State of Decay, this radio call is unlocked after the player completes mission Lay of the Land.
  • In Breakdown, this radio call becomes available after the player is settled into a home site (at level 1) or right at the beginning (from level 2, since the RV acts as a temporary home site and has 2 outpost slots).
  • In Lifeline, this radio call is available right from the beginning, even before the player reaches the Black Friday base.
