Back 4 Blood Combat Training Card Guide

Back 4 Blood has a lot of similarities to the game, Left 4 Dead. The format is basically the same, the game relies heavily on co-op functionality and the enemies and characters are based loosely on older content. Yet despite this, the developers have produced a game that feels fresh while still offering a healthy dose of nostalgia. One of the mechanics that has helped this game stay fresh and new is the card system that has been implemented. This mechanic allows players to choose perks and power-ups to take with them on their zombie onslaught.

Well, in the spirit of getting up to speed with this new mechanic. We are producing a series of guides to help you get your head around these new cards. In this guide, we look specifically at the card, Combat Training.

What is the Combat Training Card in Back 4 Blood?

Combat training is a great card that is brilliant for taking down the bigger, more sturdy enemies on the roster. This card allows the player to deal 5% more damage overall, plus, the card grants the player 50% more bullet penetration. This means that when you encounter armoured Ridden or special variants like the Ogre which are mostly armour with very small weak spots to hit, you’ll still be able to do reasonable damage even when your shots are slightly off the mark.

This card isn’t one that we would recommend that you use as a leading card. The reason being that there are far better damage boosting cards on the roster. Plus, this card is best used in situations like the one mentioned above. However, if you are using corruption cards throughout the whole campaign, then that may lead to this card becoming more important. Either way, be sure to slot this card into your deck somewhere.

Back 4 Blood Combat Training is an offense tier card. Other Back 4 Blood cards of tier offense are: Ammo Pouch, Power Swap and Ridden Slayer.

How Do I Earn Cards in Back For Blood?

The player earns cards in Back for Blood by completing supply lines. This is basically like a battle pass that a player can use to obtain new cards so long as they complete campaigns and earn XP to do so. Players can speed up this progress by using corruption cards that offer extra rewards but also make the action much more difficult throughout the campaign. So if you want to expand your basic card deck, get out there and complete some levels.

What is the Relevance of the Top Card?

Your leading card in the Back 4 Blood card deck is your most important card. Unlike the other cards in this deck, this card will be active for your entire campaign. So make sure that you choose a particularly powerful card that is conducive to your overall playstyle.

So that is our quick guide explaining the combat training card in Back 4 Blood. What did you make of this guide? Was this helpful and informative for you? Which card on the roster has caught your eye? Let us know in the comments section below and as always, thank you for reading.
