When you are doing certain actions you gain XP towards a skill level depending on what action you're doing.
There are 3 dedicated skill level sets that you can level up, these are: Survival, Gathering and Crafting.

Survival level is gained by completing quests as well as staying alive on server (afk also increases this), Gathering XP is gained by picking items dropped from NPCs and Crafting XP is gained by crafting and repairing items.
Skills are also unlocked for when you reach certain levels on each skill set. You can equip these skills to help you with a boost in combat or gathering items.


There are a couple of different classes to pick from, whom all have their respective uses.
The four main classes (Gunner, Tank, Medic, Support) all receive an ultimate skill upon reaching level 50 with the respective class.
