There are few things that excite the gaming community at large more than a new, highly anticipated IP. Well, Back for Blood is just that and aims to offer the game high octane zombie killing fun that it’s inspiration Left 4 Dead did many years ago. However, it aims to do this while also offering a much more modern gaming experience, providing a brand new world, story and campaign selection. Plus, a new card system that will keep players engaged with this game long term. This card system allows players to equip perks before they embark on their clean-up missions.
So with this in mind, we thought it was only right to run through a list of the cards that will be available at launch and talk about each in depth. Allowing you to select the ideal deck before you have even stepped into this new and interesting world. In this guide, we loom specifically at the Power Swap card.
What is the Power Swap Card in Back for Blood?
The Power Swap card is a offensive card that one can equip in Back for Blood. These cards are primarily used to give you a combat boost and make taking down the Ridden a breeze. This card in particular allows the player to gain a 20% damage bonus when they swap from a weapon with low ammo to a weapon with more ammo, so long as they do this swap within 0.75 seconds of seeing their first weapon show low ammo. This sounds like a very tight window, however, if you are actively trying to make use of this skill, you won’t have any trouble making this happen.
We would say that this is one of the weaker combat based cards as the boost, while very generous, is far too situational to make use of regularly. So we would perhaps keep this one in your deck to use in a pinch but this card has no business being anyone’s top card.
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.
