Just in case you missed it, the Back for Blood Beta is live and is inviting its excited fan base to jump into the action, fight hordes of zombies and see what the spiritual successor to Left 4 Dead has to offer. However, despite probably seeing some gameplay and some maps on offer, you probably don’t know much about the lore, the core story, the characters or the Ridden. So, in this guide we take a look at one the playable characters known as the cleaners. This is our guide to the playable character, Mom.
Who is Mom in Back for Blood?
Mom is a female playable character in Back for Blood who used to live the suburban life. However, since the collapse, Mom has found herself in a leadership role, guiding the cleaners through every scuffle and skirmish, using her ability to rise to any challenge to help others. Mom leads the cleaners to avenge her sons death at the hands of the Ridden. She may doubt that she has the capacity to be the leader of the pack but she never shys away from an opportunity to kill Ridden mutants. She is a typical stern but loving mother figure and the glue that holds the team together.
In terms of appearance, Mom is an older lady, perhaps in her mid-fifties with grey, braided hair covered by a red bandana. She wears a green military jacket over a green undershirt, navy trousers and a pair of brown combat boots. Her preferred weapon of choice is a shotgun and her character is voiced by Barbara Crampton.
