World War Z Classes

World War Z Classes

Within World War Z there are a total of six classes for players to spec their characters into. Each class is designed around different skills and they bring unique attributes to the battlefield. The classes in World War Z are:

  • Gunslinger.
  • Hellraiser.
  • Medic.
  • Fixer.
  • Slasher.
  • Exterminator.

Within each class there are thirty skills for you to unlock as you play the game as that class. So a Gunslinger earns XP associated with the Gunslinger class. For completing levels you earn credits. These credits can be used to buy new weapons and unlock skills. To view each Class for yourself, access a match lobby then select Customize > Class. Here you will see every class and associated skill.
