Big Bruiser is a melee-based perk that grants a survivor a strong unarmed attack, an increased vitality stat, and a handful of points in the strength stat. To offset the perks, a big bruiser has a lowered dexterity stat, causing them to move at a slower rate than most characters.

Big Bruiser appears to be the counterpart of the Martial Artist perk which behaves similarly, providing an unarmed attack and a handful of fitness points instead.


Upgrades for Big Bruiser can be purchased from Peak Performance Perks in exchange for Zombo Points.
