World War Z Wiki


There are several classes to choose from in World War Z.


Choosing the class you want to play as is an important choice. Every class that players can choose from are designed to fit different needs for the team when fighting the zekes as well as enemy survivors. Classes are defined by their attributes, equipment, perks, and even weapon preferences.

Classes are not restricted or tied down to specific survivor characters in any way. Players are free to play any class as any survivor characters.


There are two different sets of classes depending on whether you are playing Co-op Campaign or Multiplayer, and both sets are separate from each other.
