"Master the use of Rifles"

After reaching level 4 in Shooting, a survivor can choose this specialization to improve their effectiveness when using Rifles.


"Ask any hunter and they'll tell you: you're not going to improve your Rifle Specialization unless you start bagging trophies with one."

  • Rifle Specialization is trained by killing zombies with a rifle. 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 Target Snap Distance is +25%
  • The "points" part is data taken from game file (presumably XP requirement). Needs more testing.
  • For each level of Rifle Specialization, the player is rewarded with 1 Fame.
