"BASIC SKILL. Rule #1 for survival. If you run out of Stamina, that's it. Can't fight, can't run away. You're done."
Cardio is a basic skill that every survivor has. Improving it increases the character's maximum Stamina, allowing the character to run and fight longer before having to rest. At level 7, Cardio unlocks two Special Techniques.
"Build up your Cardio the old fashioned way: run. A lot."
Cardio can be trained by sprinting. It is unconfirmed whether rolling/jumping/vaulting over obstacle improves Cardio.
The following traits reduce Cardio XP gain rate by half. There is no way to increase Cardio XP gains.
- Asthma Attacks
- A Pack A Day
- Loved Movies
Cardio level DetailsEdit
- The "points" column displays data taken from game file. Needs more testing.
- For each gained level of Cardio, the player gains 1 Fame.
|2||400||It takes a little longer before I get tired.||
|3||400||Like the mighty crocodile, I'm very dangerous over short distances.||
|4||600||When zombies learn to drive, then I'll worry.||
|5||600||Cross-country? No problem.||
|6||800||How long before the 5k zombie run becomes a real sport?||
|7||800||All this Stamina and I didn't even have to dope! (Core Specializations: Marathon, Combat Endurance)||
- If the player has abundant snacks, they can be used to accelerate training, i.e the characters don't have to wait for stamina to recover to continue sprinting.
- (Unconfirmed) Cardio seems to improve slower if the character sprinting is encumbered or is carrying a rucksack. A visual comparison is shown in the image, for a level 1 Cardio character sprinting a full lap inside the fences of Snyder Trucking Warehouse, while constantly using Snacks when Stamina is depleted.
