"Master the use of Assault Weapons. (Rifles and SMGs)"

After reaching level 4 in Shooting, a survivor can choose this specialization to improve their effectiveness when using Assault Weapons (Assault Rifles and Submachine Guns).


"If you're lucky enough to get your hands on military-grade hardware, using it's the only way to keep up your Assault Rifle (sic) Specialization."

  • Assault Weapon Specialization is trained by killing zombies with an Assault Rifle or Submachine Gun. This skill's XP gain rate seems unaffected by traits and facility bonuses, unlike Shooting.


  • According to game file, each single kill gives 10 points, and Multi Kill and Headshot Streak each gives a bonus of 20 points.

Specialization DetailsEdit


  • Default (level 1) bonus to Control is +10%
  • The "points" part is data taken from game file (presumably XP requirement). Needs more testing.
  • For each level of Assault Weapon Specialization, the player is rewarded with 1 Fame.
