For those who skip the questions and shoot first, the Gunslinger is loaded with an arsenal of weapon damage and ammo-boosting perks to mow down the dead.

"Post-apocalyptic soldier with a flair for firearms" ― Gunslinger class description

The Gunslinger is one of seven playable classes for Co-op Campaign in World War Z.

Overview[edit | edit source]

The Gunslinger is a class that puts a lot of significance on combat using any and all firearms at their disposal.

Many of the Gunslinger's perks focus on their guns. However, this leaves very few perks that can be active to strengthen the character themself. Choosing the Gunslinger largely requires you to commit to whatever rifle, handgun, or piece you currently have equipped and use it to its fullest potential to kill any and all zekes in an efficient and effective manner.

The Gunslinger's starting core perk grants two passive buffs. The first keeps weapon accuracy steady whether its wielder is moving or not. The second partially reduces the recoil effect of the gun. These buffs help improve the Gunslinger's aim when firing to make more bullets land on their targets.

The equipment of choice for the Gunslinger is the Frag Grenade. This explosive tool is meant to thin out a crowd of zombies quickly, giving the Gunslinger a decently powerful crowd control option for when the situation may deem it necessary or when their gun is just not enough.
