Skills represent the survivors' abilities to stay alive in the World of the Living Dead. Skills are vital as they increase the odds of success for survivors to kill zombies, scavenge for useful items or help them avoiding injuries, fear and fatigue, among many others. Survivors originally come with no skills, so it's up to the player to develop their skills using Survival Points (SP). Each survivor gains their own SP at a different rate, and they can only be spent to develop that survivor. If a survivor dies, none of the SP invested in them will be regained.

Skills that affect the whole Squad stack[1], boosting the usefulness of larger squads.

There are over 30 skills, split into a number of categories.
