    Another way to go if you want to milk influence via the locker is garbage collectors. They grab a bunch of the good stuff for themselves. I wondered what that trait meant on one of the survivors I took in. I didn't play him at all. At the end of the level he had a large backpack full of stuff, including multiple guns. I gave him nothing, he took it all on his own.

    Have my survivors spawning BZ pistols... But filling up with multiple guns.... That I have never experienced...

    It's possible I could be mistaken... pretty sure he had 2 pistols.

    I was skeptical too, until I made a Reflex/Ninja/Shotgun Specialist. This GUY OWNS, he is my MAIN ENFORCER. Sneak up on an infestation, wipe it out with one shot. (Done that many times) A horde, 2 hordes, 3 hordes? No sweat, the biggest fight with him was testing the spec out. Basically, with just minor damage and not using any molotovs/firebombs I cleared the whole area of Zeds at the Grange. I lost count but it felt like hundred. They just kept pouring in from the shotgun blasts. BTW the key thing about shotgun specialists, when using them don't stay in one spot. Clear that horde/infestation and leave. - Armed with Mod A12

    I also have a Powerhouse/Ninja/Shotgun Specialist - he owns just as much when fighting groups, but the edge goes to my Reflex guy because he has spin kick. Spin Kick always comes out on top during battles. - Armed with A12

    I'll keep that in mind. Thanks! :D

    I understand the Shotgun spec cone of death, but what is Revolver spec about? Just hitting hard, such as against specials, or a neck or top torso hit knocking tearing off the zed head?

    Also, the other aspect of the noise reduction question is whether it is worth it to focus on noise reduction, or are the density and hearing of zeds enough greater that you pull in a mass even with 2-box loudness, or even silenced firearms?

    Revolver spec increases the knock back distance of the weapon, making even .22 calibers fling Zeds around.

    Noise reduction reduce the sound by a certain amount, so a silenced .50cal is probably still louder then unsilenced .22cal

    Thank you. I have avoided wheelguns due to the low capacity and loud noise disadvantages, but will try Revolver Roy in a situation suited to seeing the best effect.

    The .22 snub-nose revolver only has a loudness of 2.

    Hell yeah! I have Sam Hoffman specced like this in Breakdown, she's been with the team for five levels now and her killcount at this point is probably 3 times the rest of the group, combined.

    I just unlocked the Moustache. So now I have three Shotgun Specialists. (Didn't unlock in my 1st play through)

    You can always 'unload' your survivors equipment into your locker, but like said above, be careful as they can grab a grenade launcher when they go to the Watch Tower. That can really mess up our vehicles parked around your Home Base.

    Yes, but as Bob mentioned, if they grab a grenade launcher they can potentially blow up your vehicles. Full auto weapons can be an issue as well. I had someone grab a full auto AKS, which uses 7.62, and they started blasting away at an armored zed. The zed got stuck on one of my vehicles so numb-nuts started firing full auto at the truck. It blew up before I could do anything to stop it. He got the armored zed though. Way to go Ace!
