All Specialties in Zenless Zone Zero, explained

There are five Specialties in Zenless Zone Zero that act similarly to classes, which are Attack, Defense, Support, Stun, and Anomaly. A Specialty determines the character’s build and combat duties which makes it easier to create decent team comps. Let’s go over each Speciality and how they work.

Attack Specialty

Agents with the Attack Specialty possess formidable damage capabilities and excel at rapidly racking up damage through direct attacks, allowing combat to come to an end quickly. These Agents typically excel in the ATK stat and there are more Attack Agents than any other Speciality, with seven available for your roster.

Stun Speciality

Stun Agents have strong control capabilities and excel at building up the Daze effect to Stun enemies which opens opportunities for your team to deal increased damage. Characters with this Specialty should have a higher Impact stat to heighten the amount of Daze an enemy receives, and there are three Stun characters available right now.


Support Specialty

Agents who have the Support Specialty are here to aid and enhance team members by buffing them to improve their combat effectiveness. While they may have low ATK stats, they should be higher in HP and DEF, as well as Energy Regen to use their buffs more often. So far, only three Support Agents exist.


Anomaly Specialty

Anomaly Agents specialize in applying debuffs to enemies while also being skilled in accumulating Anomaly Buildup which weakens enemies and deals damage by triggering Attribute Anomalies. They should have higher Attribute Anomaly and Anomaly Rate Bonus stats, and right now there’s only one Anomaly character.
