World War Z – Class / Skills Guide

General Skill / Class Information

This World War Z Skills Guide gives general information with hints and tips that I have learned while leveling up. That said, each Class has unique skills that can be unlocked as you level up that specific class. In all there are 27 skills you can choose from, with three additional skills “mandatory” but free. Those three skills come at Level 10, 20 and 30 as well as each time you Prestige. Although you have 27 skills to choose from you can only have 9 active at a time (+3 mandatory skills as well as +1 for Prestige). From the skill screen you can see that there are 9 columns in which you can choose one in each column. We recommend deciding ahead of time what skills you think you’ll want to go and spending the credits on those instead of buying them all.  If you are looking to see the best tree for each class, there really isn’t one per say.  While I personally think there is good skills to get, its based on my play style and the modes I like to play.  There is no right or wrong answer so choose whats best for you and your play style. However if you’d like to see what I run, check out our individual guides here.

Earned per game/round:

Choosing the most efficient difficulty to play is really determined by what you want to achieve.  Obviously the harder the difficulty the higher the rewards.  That being said I have found that jumping in a Quick Match on Normal Difficulty is extremely easy to farm, even with the randoms you get paired with.  Playing on hard is also a very farm-able route in quick match / solo but I have found that playing on normal is far easier and the reward you get isn’t worth the higher difficulty.  If you’re looking for a challenge with your friends then I definitely recommend the higher tiers as coordinated play on comms, choosing classes and skills that mesh together well, etc is all far easier to do then just hopping into randoms.
