World War Z has a total of six character classes that you can play as. Each comes with their own weapons, equipment, and perks. It’s worth trying them all to find the one that best suits your playstyle, but how do you change your class to find out? Between Gunslinger, Exterminator, Fixer, Hellraiser, Medic, and Slasher, there is something for everyone, and in this guide, we’re going to show you how to switch between them.
How to change classes in World War Z
Classes can be changed between games, and there is no restriction on which class each character can use. Switching from one character to another will not technically change anything, since characters will always default to the category selected in the class menu. To access the menu, start a new game in a cooperative campaign; offline or online doesn’t matter. You will be taken to the episode level selection menu and you will see the “Customize” tab to the right of the “Episodes” tab. Switch to this tab using R1 on PlayStation, the right bumper on Xbox, or your mouse on PC and look for the “Class” option. Select it and you’ll be taken to the class menu, where all the character categories will be listed. Set the one you want to try and exit the menu. Your selection will automatically default to all characters and will remain so until you change it again. All players have their own unique style, and World War Z’s customization options certainly allow you to build your character around that. As you level up, each class will gain new upgrades and abilities, so if you don’t like a class the first time around, consider giving it a change later when you’ve leveled up. It might grow on you.
