Survivors are the humans who were not infected during the supposed initial outbreak. The goal as a survivor is to fight off the zombie horde, which may require accomplishing specific tasks or simply fending off as many of the undead as possible. Survivor players can play as one of six characters: Eugene, Marcus, Jessica, Paul, Lea, and Vanessa. There are no differences between the survivors gameplay-wise, the only differences are their appearance, personality and voice, and viewmodels. Character preference is purely aesthetic.
