Mechanic is a perk that combines support with combat by providing points in mechanical skill and fitness skill. Mechanics start with a wrench, an unbreakable but rather heavy melee weapon; the starting fitness slightly helps in using it.


Upgrades for Mechanic can be purchased from Perks of the Mind in exchange for Zombo Points.
