How do I use Heroes and how do I get gear for Heroes?
Heroes are playable characters that replace your default character (Michael Bennett). Each Hero has a name and a biography, and unique skills and stats that you can advance by levelling up. Heroes gain experience when you win PvP fights and complete Campaign missions while using them. Use Zombie Guides to get even more experience and level up faster.
Gear items can be equipped on Heroes to improve their stats (and add new skills). Gear can be received as rewards in Events, and in a variety of Crates, including Free Crates. There are four gear slots for each Hero.
Equipping Gear might require levelling up your Hero, which can be done in PvP fights, in Campaign and by using Zombie Guides.
