A human who is naturally resistant to the infection. — In-game description

Survivors are people who are naturally immune to the infection that devastated most of the world. They now have to learn to survive against the elements, Infected, and other Survivors while meeting their basic human needs.

Every player begins as a minimally-equipped character in the nation of Chernarus after the infection has struck its populace and the defense forces have collapsed. Survivors are free to make up a backstory for their character and choose their own playstyle. They are always presumed to be average people however, with no special training (Except for the ability to pilot helicopters, drive cars, and use/maintain firearms exceptionally well, suggesting that the survivor may have had a military background in roles such as a pilot) or particular athletic ability.
