Things to Note in Back 4 Blood’s Tunnels of Terror DLC
DLCs are usually a hit or miss for many games, especially for a game like Back 4 Blood which in itself is already very pricey.
Well, we will let you be the judge for that, overall the content we’re getting in the Tunnels of Terror DLC looks pretty promising and perhaps is what the game needs to refresh things.
Today, we have compiled a list of notable additions and content of the Tunnels of Terror DLC and other changes that will definitely affect your Back 4 Blood experience.
There Will Be a New Campaign Mode
This new campaign mode will be called “Ridden Hives” where players will be thrown into a labyrinth underground filled with the infected.
Players will also be tested in their dungeon-crawling abilities as this labyrinth is more like a maze. To succeed, you would most likely need to keep communicating with your peers to know their location at all times We recommend using a voice chat app like Discord before beginning this campaign.
The labyrinth will also be littered with goodies like rare equipment and weapons which players will definitely need to combat the infected and also survive.
New Characters Added: Heng and Sharice
New characters are always the more interesting part of updates and DLCs. And this time around, we are treated with 2 new Cleaners—Heng and Sharice.
Heng is your MacGyver-like character who can make supplies and can even see entrances hidden behind walls. Heng is also very good when it comes to sustainability as his special team ability gives his team a chance to reuse their items – this could come in clutch in the long run.
As for Sharice, she is more of a tanker and can take a couple of hits due to her proficiency in gathering and looting armour. Her team ability is also extremely helpful and consistent as having her in your team automatically gives a 25% extra boost to all of her team members’ health.
New Enemies: 3 Ridden Added
Not only is humanity getting stronger, but the infected are also getting some buffs or two with 3 new Ridden additions.
The new Ridden added are:
Designed to look like a Crusher, The Ripper is expected to be a damage-dealing Ridden and would probably have a more aggressive nature compared to the other additions.
The Shredder is the bulkiest version of the newly added Ridden and we’re expecting it to be a health machine that would take a lot of beating for it to go down.
Almost the complete opposite of The Shredder. The Urchins are scrawny Ridden that rely not on strength but on their landmine setting abilities. Hence, we can assume that The Urchins are more of the intelligent kind and will use their wit to make players pay.
These new Ridden can be earned from the PVP Swarm Mode, just like the new Cleaner characters.
The Hardest Difficulty Mode Yet: No Hope Mode
If you are looking for an extra challenge for Back 4 Blood, this update might suit you well as Turtle Rock Studios has introduced a new game difficulty called “No Hope”.
This mode is not for the faint of heart and you actually need friends to attempt this difficulty as matchmaking with pubs is non-existent here.
One of the most brutal parts of the No Hope difficulty is that each player will only get one life and you’ll have to make it through without dying. Friendly fire will also hurt a lot more which creates a more realistic post-apocalyptic environment where accidentally shooting your friend can have serious consequences.
Therefore, we highly recommend the No Hope difficulty for extremely seasoned players only. All of your party members will need to be mechanically sound and know what they are doing at all times.
Other Notable Additions, Changes and Quality of Life Elements
As there are a whole lot of huge to minor changes to the game, we’re not going to list down each and every one of them. Instead, we will be highlighting some of the more important ones.
