Headquarters Tower Yard 3

The Goldman Building

The Goldman Building, also known as the Goldman Headquarters, is a 50-story structure that appears in both The House of the Dead 2 and The House of the Dead 4. The building served as the personal office and headquarters for Caleb Goldman's financial conglomerate.


The Goldman Building is stationed on a small island located off the coast of Venice, Italy, and can only be accessed via a bridge. The bridge has many "Checkpoints" or structures on each segment, though none are explored. In The House of the Dead 2, a boss Zombie is fought in front of one of them. While in The House of the Dead 4, a zombie driving a car crashes and falls down a hole the boss made.

Once inside the complex, the tower itself is extensive, and there are a number of paths, labs, and corridors, including a bridge near the top that connects specifically to the CEO office.

The front yard is where there are four zombies before encountering the Magician once again. This location/Battle is only one of the very few chances to see the tower's exterior. Though in The House of the Dead 4, the battle sequence is skipped, and the players go straight into the lobby of the building. The Yard is also the place where Goldman's legacy, The World is fought at the end of "The House of the Dead 4".

This notable and familiar location is the entrance to the Headquarters. The number of floors that exist between The House of the Dead 2 and 4 remains the same, though there are several aesthetic changes between the two, such as the latter having an almost night feel to it. This is where the battle with the Star takes place in The House of the Dead 4.

49th Floor (HOD4 only)Edit

The first corridor is infested with Lances, Franklins, and Erics. As the player moves on, the next corridor appears to have a more oriental Japanese theme, as evidenced by the doors and the blossom on a wall. This makes the Headquarters look more like a castle than an office.

50th Floor (HOD2 only)Edit

This is where Goldman's office is located. It is infested with various zombies armed with pulse laser swords or steel boomerangs. Defeat them to advance to the clone lab where the second fight with The Tower takes place. The last corridor in this floor has a more futuristic theme in keeping with the zombies' themes.

Final bridge/staircase Edit

Once beating the Tower (only in 2) and all the zombies surrounding it, you will come up on a small bridge that hangs over the lobby, which connects to the center and above it is the CEO Atrium. Not a single zombie is encountered here.

CEO Atrium/Office Edit

The Atrium is the final room before the CEO office where Goldman resides. It has two massive metal pillars decorating around the room and framing the main door. Goldman's office, is a large room with a singular window, there is not much else other than his desk, and the floor design is relatively, if not the same design from the Courtyard. It is revealed in The House of the Dead 4 that a computer is concealed in the desk. The roof of the main office is where Goldman reveals his creation, the Emperor, in The House of the Dead 2.
