Skills

From Rebuild: Gangs of Deadsville Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

Each survivor is assigned one main skill, akin to a character class. This skill can be improved through experience or training. The main player is an exception, as they can level up all five of their skills.

A skill can be levelled up to a maximum of 10, and it can be raised above that using equipment and perks.

A survivor's non-main skills can't be levelled up (unless they change their main skill first in schools), but they can be improved using equipment and perks. Non-main skills function normally in missions.

In addition to the benefits in mission, higher skill level generally gives better dialogue options in events, especially with leadership.
