"Master the use of Heavy Weapons"

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


"Sure it's a workout, but crushing zombies with large, heavy objects is the only way to master Heavy Weapon Specialization."

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


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

Specialization DetailsEdit


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