Zion, colloquially known as 2k2k, is one of the most notable monuments near spawn on 2b2t. The base's colloquial name was given by the players of 2b2t due to its coordinates being close to X:-2000, Z:-2000. The base was the last known base of the Facepunch Republics before their disbandment. The base was built sometime in June of 2012.
In the final days of the destruction of the Facepunch War, 2k2k served as the last base and stronghold for a shatter of the Facepunch Republic point, the Republic was in shambles. Chezhead lead the Republic poorly and the 4channers were quickly pressing in. Chezhead gave up on the Republic, and so the remaining Facepunchers tried to keep it together but failed and the Republic died in February 2012. One of the last bands of Facepunchers still loyal to their fallen Republic, lead by Phagocytic, decided to create a spawn base in order to continuously rebuild the base in hopes that the 4channers would eventually give up on destroying the base. This project was named Zion, as to find a new homeland to the Facepunchers, similarly how Zionism is the idea to give a new homeland for the Jewish peoples (Israel). The base had been destroyed several times but the Republic persisted to rebuild it and fight off opponents.
The Facepunchers gradually began to get tired of rebuilding the base and many lost hope. Due to this, the Facepunchers lost their final stand and with this defeat, the last of the old Republic was destroyed with 2k2k being obliterated sometime in June of 2012.
2k2k now lies in a large cobblestone tomb, after tens, possibly hundreds of lavacasts were dumped upon it. Some of its original structure remains and people have done some restoration among the tomb, with many restored rooms being discoverable within the cobblestone hell. Of course, these don't last too long but people continue to restore nonetheless. It is also possible to get lost in the vast catacomb of cobblestone and death if you do not know how to navigate yourself through it.
Since the base was built around the same time of when Beta 1.7.3 was released, the fortress was not constructed with stone bricks as they had not been added yet. Instead, Facepunchers created the base out of cobblestone. Despite this, the group managed to make incredibly detailed hallways and arches that truly gave it an ancient feeling.
- While many people think that 2k2k is located at X:2000 Z:2000, its actual coordinates are X:-2000 Z:-2000. This led to the positive 2k2k being lavacasted over many times due to the confusion, while the actual location of 2k2k, while still lavacasted, is minuscule in comparison.
