Furthermore, FunPlus assures its global fanbase that there is still a lot to look out for the year comes to a close. The latest challenge for the game's second anniversary tasks its players to join their fellow survivors in building a massive airship that can safely soar above the endless Infected hordes.

With her active skill "Raid," Becca can use her grappling gun to leap, kick, and stun all nearby enemies. Additionally, she has two passive skills: "Incindiary Bullets" give her a chance to use modified, area of effect explore rounds, while her "Killer Instinct" allows Becca to deal more damage to Elite enemies.
