Kindell is found killing zombies with a shotgun in the North Plaza near the fountain. When Frank West approaches him, Kindell says that it is nice to see another human being.

Frank then offers to bring him to the Security Room, where more survivors are holed up. He reveals that a helicopter is coming in three days to rescue them. Kindell initially doubts it, but agrees to follow him back.

Kindell's Betrayal[]

After being rescued, Kindell will wait in the room with the green door; he soon believes that there is no helicopter coming in three days and rallies up the other survivors in the same room to make a break for it. Frank then reveals that the National Guard has quarantined the town and it is impossible to make it out of the town. Frank convinces Kindell to postpone his plan to after the arranged time; if the helicopter does not show, Kindell is free to do as he does.

If Frank does not stop Kindell's mutiny, Kindell will leave the Security Room along with the other survivors in the same room. They will no longer count towards the number of rescued survivors.
