Hidden Potential is a melee-centered perk that grants a survivor points in fitness and strength while also increasing the cap of one of these skills to be raised up to 7 at random.

Interestingly, unlike most perks, survivors with Hidden Potential do not start with any weapons at all, just the standard punch attack.


Upgrades for Hidden Potential can be purchased from Peak Performance Perks in exchange for Zombo Points.
