Back 4 Blood Supply Lines and decks: how to unlock and use new cards in Back 4 Blood

Back 4 Blood has finally arrived, as has the interesting new card system that comes with it. Back 4 Blood differs from its spiritual predecessor, Left 4 Dead, in several ways, including the use of cards.
Back 4 Blood has a feature called Cards. This “roguelike” card system allows players to create unique experiences each time they play, allowing them to design customized decks, roll alternative builds, and take on more difficult battles. There are corruption cards selected by the Director, as well as active cards that allow the player to choose from a variety of beneficial special bonuses. In cooperative mode, players gain access to additional Supply Lines cards.
Picking and selecting cards may appear straightforward at first, but as you move through the Back 4 Blood Acts and the game’s difficulty increases, these cards may become life or death. To put it another way, you’ll need to carefully select the greatest Back 4 Blood cards and curate your decks.

How do Back 4 Blood Supply Lines work?

Back 4 Blood starts you off with a pre-made deck of basic cards. You’ll need to advance your Supply Lines to access more cards. Supply Lines are similar to Battle Passes in that you progress through a set of rewards earned through gameplay. There aren’t any secrets in this right now. Supply Points are earned by completing campaign levels, so get out there and play the game to advance. Then, in Fort Hope, interact with one of the two NPCs indicated on your HUD to spend your Supply Points.

Active Cards and Corruption Cards are the two types of cards in the game. Every level, Back 4 Blood’s AI Director draws Corruption Cards, which affect adversaries, weather, events, and rewards. In the meantime, players can use Active Cards to gain various benefits and boosts that will aid them in surviving the zombie onslaught.
Every player will start with a single Supply Line, which contains some cosmetics and a few basic cards. After that, you’ll be offered with three separate Supply Lines to choose from, each of which you can advance through independently. Similarly, starting a new Supply Line does not bind you to it. For example, you could unlock the first two cards in Paul’s Alley, then go out and collect more Supply Points, which you could then spend on the first card in The Crow’s Nest.

Back 4 Blood Corruption Cards

Corruption Cards are chosen by the AI Director based on the difficulty setting and how well the players did in earlier Acts and levels. In Back 4 Blood, there are four different sorts of corruption cards, each with a different effect.
Ridden –  Determine the frequency and characteristics of common Infected types such as Armored, Charred, and Blighted Ridden.
Mutations (Special Infected) – Determine the frequency of Special Infected such as Breakers, Ogres, Snitchers, Hags, Tallboys, Singers, Reekers, and their different subtypes, as well as their behaviors. Some cards will also apply additional modifiers to a specific adversary, such as increased health or damage.
Challenge and Rewards – Players can complete special challenges throughout the level. 4th row Depending on the level of the challenge, Blood players gain Supply Points and Copper for completing it. Obtaining blood samples, avoiding alarms, ensuring that all players survive, and completing the game within a time restriction are just a few examples.
Events – The level’s environment is changed. Fog and power shortages can be reduced by increasing the number of security doors, fast producing Hordes, or an overpopulation of a specific variety of Special Infected. Some Event Cards are a mix of the foregoing, such as a disproportionately large number of Snitchers in a blacked-out area.

Back 4 Blood Active Cards

Players choose five Active Cards from their deck and play one after Back 4 Blood’s AI Director selects its cards. Players can now choose cards to counter or lessen the effects of the Corruption Cards. Some Active Cards provide a character’s stats and abilities a direct boost. Others provide a significant benefit at the expense of some disadvantage. Active Cards are divided into the following categories by Back 4 Blood.
Reflex – Modifiers that increase the character’s speed, stamina, and melee combat effectiveness
Discipline – Ammo capacity and healing efficiency are increased, while numerous goods and skills for healing and aiding other players are unlocked. This category also has the greatest number of cards that grant access to new starting weapons.
Brawn – Health, damage resistance, and the efficiency of melee weapons and explosives are all improved.
Fortune – The player’s ability to gather ammo and copper, as well as a few Cards related to health recovery and gun battle, is the center of this game.

New cards can be obtained through supply lines or by finding them during a level. While certain Cards are available for free, the majority of Cards found in levels must be purchased with Copper. Meanwhile, players in Back 4 Blood can use Supply Points to open Supply Lines at camp. Each Supply Line is made up of a sequence of unlocks that are progressively more expensive. Players start with one Supply Line, but after finishing it, they can unlock more.

Cards are extremely crucial in Back 4 Blood, whether you like it or not. All Back 4 Blood cards give your character unique characteristics that will effect each and every playthrough, from determining how quickly your Cleaner can run to giving you missions to perform for additional money.

How to build a deck in Back 4 Blood

The Card system begins with deck creation in the Fort Hope lobby area. The deck builder is accessible through the same two NPCs stated previously. You start with a pre-made deck and can customize it with the cards you get access to through Supply Lines.

There are a maximum of 15 cards in each deck. There are no duplicates permitted, so you can’t stack cards like Cross Trainers to become super-fast. Some cards have substantial bonuses on their own, such as Breakout, which allows you to break free from grabs while on cooldown. Others collaborate in a synergistic manner. To enable a more, well, run and gun playstyle, you can combine Energy Bar, which improves stamina recovery, with Run and Gun, which allows you to shoot while sprinting. By strengthening your finest weapons and stats, you can experiment with different combinations to discover a deck that suits you.
One crucial note: the top card in your deck will be active for the duration of the campaign. To enhance your efficiency, place a powerful card at the top. Because those are the most critical cards for each character, our Holly build places Adrenaline Fuelled at the top, while our Walker build puts Two Is One And One Is None at the top.

The majority of the cards on this list will improve your damage while having little disadvantages. As a result, they’re ideal for any player, character, or build. Everyone has to do some damage, and offense cards can help you do just that.

Both Ridden Slayer and Reflex Strategy help you deal more damage to weakspots. When facing typical Ridden, a simple headshot or two should be enough to knock them out before they ever get close. Stacking these cards, on the other hand, gives you a 50% damage boost against Special Ridden, which should enable you survive even on the most severe settings.
The Sadistic card adds to this by increasing your weakspot damage by 5% for every precise kill in the previous ten seconds. This is a great card for everyone playing Back 4 Blood because everyone should be aiming for headshots and precision kills. If you want to enhance your damage even more, or if you don’t have access to any of the other cards stated above, Shredder is a great card to use to deal more damage to any enemy. This boosts your damage by 1% for each bullet you hit, up to a maximum of 15% more damage. This may not seem like much, but it makes a difference, especially if your teammates utilize this card as well.

Marked For Death and Knowledge Is Power give you even more damage. They both boost your damage done while also providing other benefits.  Any Special Ridden that you mark will be highlighted in Marked For Death, making them easier to spot for your colleagues. Knowledge Is Power allows you to see enemy damage statistics and health bars, which isn’t actually relevant in the game, but it does help you determine which weapons are worth utilizing.
Unlike the other utility cards described, Lucky Pennies takes a different approach to providing additional damage. During a run, this card increases your chances of earning 35 percent more copper, which is the currency you use to buy weapons, goods, ammo, and team improvements. Back 4 Blood, unlike Left 4 Dead, does not provide free first aid kits and weaponry in every safe room, so if you want to live to fight another day, you’ll need as much copper as you can collect. Because this card affects your entire team, you need always make sure that at least one player has it active.

TIP

For Act 4 the Final Boss fight, after failing a few times I created a new deck and went with Hyper-Focused, Reckless Strategy, Ridden Slayer which all boost Weak spot Damage, along with a few other Reflex and Discipline cards.
