      Why does this game feel so generic? It looks boring. It plays boring. It feels boring. The special infected are the same as every other zombie game, except now you get three different flavors of the same special infected we’ve always had. Oh but wait, now you get to play Yugi-Oh while playing a zombie coop shooter. Can’t say that I’m surprised though. It feels like every game that comes out these days is just generic mediocre garbage.

        That’s the best way I can describe back 4 blood. They added a lot of "cool stuff" that didn’t need to be added.

        this explains why l4d felt so safe and tame. if you look at l4d2’s cut content, you’ll see they wanted to expand into a lot of areas. it’s the reason just has this void in it even though the base idea is really solid.

        it’s just a question of whether you want a safe, polished shooter with some substance. but never dares to be dangerous. or the janky, but rather ambitious game. with the latter, you’ll get higher highs than l4d ever could imagine.

        i know what i want.

          What cut shit? You mean the special infected they play tested and were way too hard to handle while also dealing with common and other special infected?

          Ah yes I love things like an enemy that you have to sneak past or it summons a horde just tossed into the game ignoring why it got cut in the first place.

            It’s fine. Not sure how someone can say it’s plays boring unless you literally haven’t played anything but the beta. Even on normal aka "Recruit" it’s got some difficulty and will wipe alot of teams. You will basically never win hard (Veteran) unless you have a team of communicating competent players and good RNG for guns/attachments/gear. The hardest difficulty is probably nigh impossible for an overwhelming majority of people.

                Yeah I’m sure those L4D RNG mechanics aren’t artificial difficulty either? I’ve put a dumb amount of hours into either and runs have been make-or-break by RNG because shitty SMGs aren’t doing a whole lot on anything above easy baby-mode and throwables are invaluable.

              frag grenades kills snitches and crows without alerting the horde

              I’ve been watching people obliterate the snitch and it still manages to call a horde as it dies most of the time.
              I assume it’s a bug but that’s insane that due to lag or something else handling that special correctly can still punish you.

                If you’re talking about the night-time church area than that is part of the mission itself that they alert enemies as they die. Otherwise I haven’t seen that be a thing yet.

                  I’ve been watching someone who really likes the game play it for hours and hours in the background and nearly every time I see them deal with a snitch even throwing a nade at it and deleting it the "alerted the snitch" pop-up still happens and they get fucked by a horde.

                    Well than it’s probably a modifier I haven’t run into yet. Each round between safehouses is RNG enemies, higher difficulty has higher chances for things like "armoured" enemies or I presume Snitches always alerting regardless if killed.

                        There’s a corrupted modifier that it can have, like the Horde/Armoured, except it makes it so the snitcher always summons.

                        If you get the snitch buff corruption card it dying from player damage always calls a horde no matter what.
                        You can one shot it with a grenade or .50 BMG and the call will still go out for a horde.

                        Doesn’t really help to know about it beforehand when the snitch spawns 5 feet in front of you and immediately sees you and now if you kill it there’s still a horde, faggot.

                      Deep Rock Galactic has the naedocyte breeder and World War Z has the screamer so B4B is not the first time this type of special has existed in a co-op horde shooter and I don’t remember accusations of bad design for either of those games. What separates these 3 games from the L4D screamer is that in all of them the special is loud, slow, easy to spot and except for the breeder, doesn’t run away.

            You just have to adapt and deal with them. Sometimes an extra horde can’t be avoided

            The mutated ones should still alert a horde. That’s a good strategy though. Assuming I have any nades left after getting double Tall Boys or whatever

      Also gamepass always fucks up on my machine and the games are either the wrong build or they run like shit and this already has denuvo and latency issues from what I hear.

      I guess if the game lives to the point it hits $20 or less I’ll try it out.

      I’d be complaining if I paid for it (besides the monthly gamepass fee) but it’s free on gamepass so I don’t mind that’s it’s a mediocre game. When it’s removed from gamepass in a year I’ll decide if I want to buy it for a discounted price

      It really does not feel fun to play. I can jump into L4D2 and have a blast (aside from some of the community being faggots) but this game has shit matchmaking that takes 10 minutes to find a campaign match, and then it’s always just Xbox retards that can’t play for shit. The gunplay would be fun, but you run out of ammo constantly. There’s barely any gore so shooting zombies isn’t very satisfying. And the entire experience is just bogged down in bullshit to justify the terrible card system so you get killed by cheap RNG often. I wanted to love this game so much and I just don’t. Only fun I’ve had is playing as the infected in the versus mode, but even that is half-assed and barebones compared to L4D2.

                    no but if you played a game for free for 15 hours you got your fun out of it
                    it’s retarded to say that it isn’t worth playing for free if you spent 15 hours in it

                    then it’s clearly good enough you spent that time in it

                      That’s assuming the 15 hours were fun. If we go into the argument of how much time should be spent to decide the game isn’t fun we end up with the fucking "you can’t say it’s bad, you barely played it/how can you say it’s bad when you played it so much?" shit when really it’s the former statement that’s the reasonable one.

                        it sounds like you’re expecting it to be some huge game you get 500 hours out of. You go tit for free, don’t expect some free game you can play for 500 hours without getting bored of

                      This isn’t a single player game that you can play for 30 min to test its mechanics. It’s an online multiplayer grinding game. Getting bored after only 15 hours shows how bad the game really is.

        I’ve killed them instantly (M95 Barret aka .50 cal) or teamshotting and they haven’t alerted. As far as I can tell also… bots aren’t subject to that. They can do whatever they want without consequence. I’ve seen them slowly kill a snitch over the course of like 15 seconds and it never alerted.

      i played the whole campaign of back4blood and the game is okayish not 60 dollars worth by a long shot tho.
      plus the amount of annoying problems like the 20+ minute waiting time if you wanna continue mid way through an act forcing you to either wait or go back a mission or 2 to find a lobby faster make it so i wont be picking this up until its 20 dollars+ having at least some friends to play with cuz Randoms in this game are absolutely hairpulling brain dead
      also fun fact you cant solo the campaign(you can but you wont unlock anything) so forcing you to play with people not the biggest issue for me but its still one of the problems that keep stacking on each other

          Two of those are exploders which summon a horde when they explode near anyone.
          So that’s 4 reekers and 2 exploders meaning they’re getting at least 3 hordes on top of the tanky boomer spawns.

          You answered your own question there. It’s a crutch for lazy developers who have made a fraction of a game and don’t have enough content, so they add in "roguelike" mechanics to pad it out with filler and pretend they’re done.

It runs well, the weapons feel fun and unique, it’s *way* more challenging than L4D ever was, has an proper level pinging system (like how fucking many years do you need to get since Apex Legends and devs still don’t know how to do such a simple fucking if/else/then ping system right?), has a shit ton of content etc. The card system is great, adding a lot of depth and a good long lasting progression system – something L4D always needed mind you -, yet it’s nowhere near as dull as the fucking mandatory level and equipment grind of Vermintide. Your progression isn’t locked behind fucking 50 000 hours of RNG.

      And did I mention how hard it is? L4D was always too easy. And there’s a great overall synergy between the different cards and characters, enabling you to do full support builds, dedicated zombie killers, speed runners, solo or team oriented, and anything inbetween.

              Go look up "rainbow six teamkill montage" on youtube or just teamkill on its reddit would probably bring up enough examples. I dropped the game years ago and i think they did some stuff to try and curb it but at a point it was so bad more people were writing the game off as unsalvagable like a f2p steam game overtaken by bots. ubisoft was even sending out surveys with questions like "have you encountered at least one match without team killers in the last month".

        I’m surprised your experience was filled with griefers, sometimes I was playing with stoners who were ready to make pancakes after their play session, but I’m also able to get into silent groups that are able to just play and get the job done.

        My bigger gripe is why in the fuck does my character feel like he’s done so much cocaine because when I tried to aim at a single zombie, the crosshairs manages to fly all over the fucking place.

        Did they also lock the “accuracy” behind cards or do I need to tweak my controls?

      As a console fag I’d like to take a moment to cry about how terrible this game feels on a controller, at least with the default settings. The sensitivity is so fucking low that it takes forever to turn around and there isn’t a quick 180 button like Left4Dead had for some fucking reason. Plus the autoaim feels terrible and locks on from a mile away but aims straight for center mass and then you need to fight against it to actually hit a damn weak point. I’ve definitely got to go in and tweak stuff but this is the worst controlling FPS out of the box I’ve played on a controller in a long fucking time.

          I think I need to just turn off autoaim altogether and crank up the sensitivity which I’m definitely not opposed to but the fact the default is like this has me wondering how this team could get it so wrong when L4D feels amazing on a controller. I honestly have no idea how you’re supposed to beat anything above the easy difficulty with these controls.

        Just watch the trailer, really. It shows you how people discovered the parasite. It was some ancient worm dug up in a glacier out in Canada. Then some dumbass researcher decided to examine the worm in a petri dish and it lunged at him, and that was the first ridden. Rest is basically the same old zombie outbreak shit from there.

        It is difficult at first.
        You have to go slowly. There’s pretty much 0 reason to sprint when clearing areas. Always walk. Clear your corners. Listen for screeching audio cues.
        The AI is really fucking dumb, and even if you aggro like 70% of a group sometimes the other 30% will continue hiding behind a wall then smack your ass when you walk by. Clear an entire area before you move on. In Pubs your retarded teammates will sprint and run around, let them die.

        For specials, if you ever see a Tallboy or a Reeker (fat guys), turn around, run and put distance between you and them.
