"Master the use of Edged Weapons"

After reaching level 4 in Fighting, a survivor can choose this specialization to improve their effectiveness when using Light Edged Weapons. At level 4 Specialization, a Special Attack is unlocked.

Training[edit | edit source]

"Slicing up zombies might dull your blade, but it'll sharpen your Edged Weapon Specialization."

  • Edged Weapon Specialization is trained by killing zombies with a Light Edged Weapon. This skill's XP gain rate seems unaffected by traits and facility bonuses, unlike Fighting.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • According to the game file, each single kill gives 10 points, and Slaughter gives a bonus of 20 points.

Specialization Details[edit | edit source]


  • The "points" part is data taken from game file (presumably XP requirement). Needs more testing.
  • For each level of Edged Weapon Specialization, the player is rewarded with 1 Fame.
