If some of my playable characters have guns or ammo on them, will they use these items when I am not controlling them, for example on a supply run or when a horde attacks base? I don't think I have seen it happen, just melee fighting. Also, can characters take weapons or supplies from locker without my control (and lose them)?
If a character is out on a mission with you. For example zed hunts. They will you use the weapon you last used with that character. For example I used a machete with one character instead of his frying pan. When I switched characters and a zed hunt mission popped up. That character used the machete. While I used my weapon.
