For Beginners of Back 4 Blood, this guide listed all basics, features, pros and cons in this game so far, and some tips are also provided as well, let’s check them out.
Yes im not exagerating here a list of what i witnessed during my playtime
-They sometimes suicide over rooftop, molotov or anything in the scenery
-They rush into hordes and die
-They don’t shoot all the time
-They never heal you
-They use the gatling guns in finales but cannot shoot anything and get stuck forever on it
-They don’t help downed teammates if they are too far
-They don’t react when they face hordes or SI (unlike l4d where they run away)
Map design and campaign
There are 2 Campaign available with 4 level each, everything is quite similar to l4d beside that when you finish a campaign you get thrown in the next one with the same gear.
The while map design is pretty basics nothing memorable or new just some l4d modernized
There are event here and there like in l4d, alarm cars, crows and even explosive cars if you shoot 3 bullet in them..
So apparently you can have more than 100hp but you can also have less, my guess is if you get down too many times you lose your HP bar and health so i got myself in a situation where i had 40hp max, pretty much one shot if i get surounded and no health item could give me more exept one and it is very rare to find:
Difficulty highly unbalanced
Yes the game is very challenging and YES it is a good thing BUT the difficulty is not balanced at all if you play first level of difficulty it will too easy and when you go into the 2 higher difficulty you need a good team and godlike team, don’t even think about soloing yet..
SI are overly unbalanced as well, Bruiser (charger like) and Retch (Boomer like) are ultra tanky, fast and deal lot of damage when everything else is just a walking joke even the gigantic oger is a pointless event always at the exact same spot in one unique map..
I noticed each infected has 3 different version for example a bruiser that punch on the floor and one who catch you or a retch that spit vomit and one who act like kamikaze (it’s really hard to differenciate them when you are in the heat of action).
Versus is just a big joke
I loved the versus campaign system of L4D and i enjoy as well the Survival versus of L4D (too bad its full of bugs), as a versus player i can tell you here is a big joke:
-4v4 arena like the map is quite small
-Like in battle royales the bubble around the map get smaller every wave
-There are no bots to replace empty slots so you can play 1v4 and yes it happen very often
-If someone ragequit no one will replace him so you will be playing 3v4 and then 2v4 etc..
-You can select any infected and any class at any moment kinda like modded l4d servers
-You can upgrade your SI or the commons depending your score
Basically the game mode is really bad, i will push it further to learn more about it and i will update this guide if i get more interesting infos.
In the first screen shot you can see we are using only Stinger infected, this one is as mobile as a hunter and you can spam multiple time at once some sort of spitter shot that deal about 7 hp damage each time you hit, you can literally shot 3-5 time per seconds and all players can take this SI at the smae time. easy win..
Lobby system is great!
Matchmaking is the same as L4D
Since there is no ranking or whatever system, i suppose it’s normal in a beta but there are no clue at all that anything will be implemented so you will just meet randoms either veteran or beginners and deal with it.
Also i found trolls who teamkill already, blocking players is easy but i couldn’t kick him even tho i have the option, i suppose again that a bug in beta and will be fixed in the full release.
Yeah every guns has different colors and are ranked with more or less high stats you will be able to notice in the lobby when you go get the guns they are all purple ranked *50 wich i have no clue what it mean exactly since i found *54 and *53 ingame.
That are the colors ive met ingame for now.
Attachements also have colors and ranking system.
Deck, cards and profile
Same as the Alpha version, nothing really changed maybe different cards and one deck for campaign and one for versus
Im not 100% sure yet but cards seem to be stackable? or not all of them? so just use 5-10 cards you really need and pickup the same to be invincible.
You can unlock every cards by adding them to your custom deck even if it show as locked, bugged i suppose but at least i can test them all.
Cards seems to be locked tho so in the real game you will need to play to unlock, the more you play the more you gain ingame currency and you will unlock things.
You can also customize your profile and your spray, no point nothing to gain from it just estethic features and good way to show off some hard unlockable stuff
-Limited retries, lose the game 3 times and you get kicked in lobby and have to redo the whole campaign
-There are new infected (wall thingy) and they removed the screamer from alpha
-Oger still completly useless feature
-Getting into a random game and having only the basics gear of the characters is a pain (melee only for Holly)
-No legs in first person
-No matchmaking (yet?)
-Gun variety and attachements is really great
-SI spawn rate is average (sometimes you meet no SI for 5min and sometimes you get a dozen)
-Common spawn rate is good compared to alpha
-Impossible to turn on/off flashlight it’s all automatic in certain area
-Impossible to remove attachements, so if you find a fresh new deagle with a scope that you don’t want..eh
-If you get pinned and no one help you, you will die real quick
-Since melees are useless you need the bash knife card, yes a knife bash that one shot zm and not a axe or machete
