Back 4 Blood has been in the works for quite some time now. With zombie fanatics waiting patiently to get their hands on this upcoming co-op classic. At the time of writing, this game is celebrating its launch of an open beta and the game is due for a full release in just two months. So in short, the wait is almost over. Meaning that now is the optimal time to get to know the characters that you’ll be using to take down the Ridden monstrosities and decide which character suits your playstyle best. In this guide, we take a look at the playable character, Karlee.
Who is Karlee in Back 4 Blood?
Karlee is the recluse of the group. A closed off, emotionally unavailable cleaner that does her job, does it well and does it with no thrills or spills. She only trusts in herself and her own abilities that this approach has served her well since the collapse. Since then, she lived on the outskirts of Fort Hope, getting by through looting and scrounging to survive. Although she may feel like an entity that just so happens to be on the side of the cleaners rather than a team player. It’s safe to say that you would rather have that than see her fighting against you.
In terms of appearance, Karlee has a certain look about her that is quite similar to popular actor Ruby Rose. She has slicked back, short purple hair, pierced ears with plugs, visible tattoos on her neck and midriff. She is wearing a purple cropped hoodie, a heavy leather jacket, leather pants, leather gloves and heavy combat boots. This character does not have a unique weapon of choice and her character is voiced by Abby Trott.
What Are Karlee’s Special Abilities?
Karlee is a character that is ultimately out for herself in terms of personality. However, ironically a lot of her skill benefit the team as a whole. She has the ability to sense hazards which allows her to avoid traps and potential immobilisation as well as warn those around her. She also has an additional quick inventory slot for quick use of items. Then lastly, she has a team skill that allows the group to use items faster, meaning less time waiting for healing animations to finish. Overall, despite being a lone wolf, Karlee is a real asset to the team.
