"Master the use of Pistols"

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


"800,000 police officers can't be wrong: Pistol Specialization requires shooting things with pistols. In this case, zombies."

  • Pistol Specialization is trained by killing zombies with a pistol. 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


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