Survivors are characters found in the Exo Zombies map Infection. The player has the opportunity to escort them to Eagle One's Warbird, where the survivor(s) will be extracted. This will grant the players an upgrade for their weapons. If a Survivor is highlighted in red, they are about to die; if the player fails to save one, all power on the map will be shut down for 60 seconds, and the power switches will have to be manually turned on again afterwards.
Rescuing a total of 25 survivors unlocks the outro cutscene to Infection.
