A personal favorite of mine is the Strength Build. This build will give you efficacy using heavier weapons like sledgehammers and shotguns. Your stamina will also go through the roof, allowing you to carry more items, cook better food and get more bang for your buck mining. 

Why you should choose the Strength Build:

  • Increase of power when using bat and clubs as well as increasing quality when crafting. 
  • Unlock the Iron Sledgehammer and the AoE Knockdown Chance ( When sticking an enemy with a power attack, you have an increased chance to knock down all enemies within an expanding range.)

If you prefer a more subtle approach to killing zombies, the Agility Build is what you are looking for. This build will allow you to move better with light armor and avoid enemies until you choose to take them out, most likely from long range with a crossbow or sniper rifle. Stealth is always lots of fun.

Why Agility is the way to go:

  • Better overall stats using bows and crossbows
  • Better damage with knives and machetes
  • Increases jump height and safe falling distance
  • Do more damage with stealth attacks
  • Move faster with light armor and craft better quality armor.

2. Fortitude Build
