Each Survivor in Zombicide has specific Skills with effects described in this section. In case of conflict with the general rules, the Skill rules have priority.
Some of the following Skills are not attributed to the Survivors in this box. They will be used by other Survivors in the future. Try them out with Survivors you create!
The effects of the following Skills and/or bonuses are immediate and may be used the turn in which they are acquired.
