After meeting Carlito Keyes on the helipad, Frank West travels through the security room to the Entrance Plaza. Frank sees Isabela Keyes for the first time, and before he can do or say anything, Ryan LaRosa interrupts him, telling him that "this is no time to ogle at pretty girls, son". Ryan then goes on to explain about the zombies and situation outside the mall. Frank is then asked and shooed to find items in the mall to add to the barricade. Venturing to the other side of the plaza, Frank sees other survivors walking about, including armed men, an upset woman, a bickering couple and folks working on the barricade. Frank locates a pile of objects in front of the closed security gate at the midpoint of the Entrance Plaza. As he approaches the stockpile to pick up an item, Frank sees Dr. Russell Barnaby on the other side of the gate and takes his photograph but not without Barnaby noticing Frank and yelling at him but before Frank can figure out what is going on he hears a loud crash from the front of Entrance Plaza. Lindsay Harris, who has been searching for her lost dog Madonna, sees her poodle on the other side of the barricade and attempts to open the door to rescue her dog. Others in the mall attempt to stop her, but they are unsuccessful and the barricade is ruined. Zombies pour through the now open door and overwhelm all those in front of it, slowly filling up the rest of the plaza. Brad Garrison yells from the second floor for everyone to run up the stairs, however most do not make it.

After the events earlier in the day, Brad and Frank West head out to try and talk sense into Dr. Barnaby. They are unsuccessful as the professor refuses to leave the bookstore he is residing in. Frank and Brad go on their separate ways and Frank rescues a survivor who is trapped in the store he works at, then continues on his way.
Frank and Brad return to the Entrance Plaza once again to rescue Dr. Barnaby from a madman armed with a Barrett M82 sniper rifle. Carlito is defeated by the pair, though not without Brad getting shot. Frank carries Dr. Barnaby to the security room with Brad. Later that day, in the early evening, several survivors and psychopaths can be found in the Entrance Plaza, including a family of snipers. The snipers are targeting a man in a cosmetics store while two women and an elderly man are spread out in the plaza, all needing assistance.
