Perks are a survivor attribute that affects the character's starting equipment and stats. Some perks grant unique abilities to the character.

All perks can be "leveled up" to make them more effective by purchasing upgrades with Zombo Points from Zombo Town. There are three levels to each perk, and each level up contributes additional stat boosts or starting items. Additionally, as of the COCCYX Update, eight new Perks were added to the game which can also be unlocked through Zombo Town.

Perks marked with an asterisk (*) are not available by default and must be bought with Zombo Points.
