"BASIC SKILL. Used to be shooting was just a hobby (sic). Now it's a daily requirement."
This basic skill determines a survivor's proficiency in handling firearms. Improved Shooting skill provides various bonuses, including reduced weapon recoil and increased accuracy. At shooting level 4, a character can choose to specialize in a Firearm type; at level 7, the skill unlocks a Special Technique.
"One in the head, you know they're dead. And you get better at Firearms."
- Shooting, as well as Gun Specialization, is improved by killing zombies with firearms.
- Player receives XP boost when performing a "Multikill"—killing 2 or more zombies with a single shot (easy to do with Rifles and Shotguns), or a Headshot Streak—scoring at least 5 headshots in a row (i.e no missed shots in between).
There are two ways to gain increased Shooting XP
- When aiming a firearm, any zombies that die near the player will give shooting experience, including those killed by mines, thrown weapons or outposts.
- According to game file, each single kill gives 10 point to Shooting, Multi Kill and Headshot Streak each gives a bonus of 20 points.
Shooting level detailsEdit
- The "points" part is data taken from game file (presumably XP requirement). Needs more testing.
- For each gained level of Shooting, the player gains 1 Fame.
