Overview

William "Bill" Overbeck is an old Soldier, accustomed to dealing with critical situations.

His personal Perks, Left Behind IconPerks leftBehind.png, Borrowed Time IconPerks borrowedTime.png & Unbreakable IconPerks unbreakable.png, make him more powerful in dire moments.

He is tough as nails and knows how to survive just about anything. He’ll do whatever it takes to help others live to see another day and he’s not afraid to take one for the team.

Difficulty rating: Hard
(based on only using his Unique Perks)

Background

BO charPreview.png
It took two tours in Vietnam, a handful of medals, a knee full of shrapnel, and an honourable discharge to get William "Bill" Overbeck to stop fighting and try to live a peaceful life. He hated it. After decades spent drifting aimlessly through dead end jobs, Bill went in for a routine surgery and woke up to find the world he knew was gone. A plague was turning normal people into mindless killing machines. Naturally, the first thing he did was fight his way home and put on his uniform. Making his way through rural ghost towns and pitch-black forests, he found other Survivors, and together they fled from the infected hordes. In the end, Bill sacrificed himself to ensure their safety. His body was never found. Bill was left for dead. No one knows that he still has the only thing he ever wanted: an enemy to fight.


Bill's Perks

These are Perks which start off only appearing in Bill's Bloodweb IconHelp bloodweb.png. After achieving Level 30, Teachable versions of these Perks can be found:

  • Left Behind - Level 30
  • Borrowed Time - Level 35
  • Unbreakable - Level 40

Once obtained, other Survivors will be able to find Bill's Perks in their respective Bloodwebs from that point onwards.

If the unhooked Survivor takes any damage during the bleed-out timer or if the bleed-out timer ends, the unhooked Survivors will be put into the Dying State IconHelp dying.png.
