Survivor Types are kinds of survivors you can train or use in activities. The higher level of the survivor in a certain skill the better he/she will be at it. The max level that any skill can go to is 10 and when a survivor reaches that level a message shall appear noticing the player of the achievement.
There are also items that survivors can be equipped with that grant them skill boosts as long as they hold them, however they will not increase any skill to higher than 10, so for example, a soldier who naturally has an offense of 10 shouldn't hold a gun as it doesn't give them any more offense.
All survivors can train any skill either by doing a task that requires the specific skill you want them to train them e.g. scavenging to boost scavenging skill) or training at a school. It would take longer to train a person who has no experience in that skill than too get a survivor who's already trained in it since they started with a higher skill, so it is more effective to train survivors in the skill(s) that they are already higher in.
Training Methods :
There are two kinds of them, the School and the Task
School Training - You will choose 3 survivors to train. It will take two days.
Task Training - Your character/survivor can be trained in different task for him/her

Soldiers (or Guards) defends your fort whenever someone attacks it like Zombie Hordes and The Last Judgement Gang. If their skill is perfected (10.0) a report will be shown that their potential and what their amazing skill is.
If they are equipped with offensive weapons a small additional amount of attack is added to its skill (Only if the Skill is below 9.0 ,as if it doesn't gain any bonus damage if it reaches 10.0)
