What is the Blighted Ridden In Back 4 Blood?

A blighted ridden is a variant of the common Ridden enemy. In terms of design and attack patterns, this enemy is very much the same as your run of the mill enemy. However, thanks to a corruption card that will have been put in place by the director at the start of the campaign, the Ridden you face will have a unique skill.

While we don’t know exactly what the blighted Ridden will be like in action. We can only assume from the term ‘blighted’ that this monster will have some sort of infectious disease which it will use in it’s favour. This might be a slow acting poison that transfers to the player upon contact. Or alternatively, this may be a plant/fungus-based power that allows them to stick you in place for an easier mauling. Either way, this variant will be quite a task to deal with.

What Other Common Variants are There?

Depending on which corruption cards are in play when you start your campaign, plus the level you currently are. You may be exposed to different types of common enemies on the regular. Here is a list of all the common variants you may encounter within this title:
