Balance changes

Resistance refinement and ZED balance changes

We've received your feedback on resistances and saw that most people like the idea and concept for this system but didn't like having low level zeds being harder to kill for some perks when you hit your target, so we've reverted most things back to the original before the Bullseye update and massively reduced others. We've also reduced ZED vulnerabilities to some types of damage, as these vulnerabilities were meant to be paired with ZED resistances.

Bosses

After re-designing the Hans boss battle we saw that groups were having a much harder time with certain bosses on different difficulties. We've made adjustments to improve the balance between the two bosses so that one boss is not much harder than another.

Hans

  • Normal difficulty
    • Increased Damage mod up 25% 0.55 (was 0.44)
    • Increased health mod up 15% 0.8 (was 0.7)
  • Hard difficulty
    • Increased damage mod up 15% 0.75 (was 0.65)
    • Increased health mod up 10% 1.1 (was 1.0)
  • Suicidal difficulty
    • Increased damage mod up 25% 1 (was 0.8)
    • Increased health mod up 20% 1.62 (was 1.35)
  • Hell on Earth
    • Increased damage mod up 10% 1.1 (was 1)
    • Increased health mod up 10% 1.7 (was 1.55)

Patriarch

  • Hard Difficulty
    • Increased health mod 25% 1.25 (was 1)
  • Suicidal Difficulty
    • Decreased damage mod 20% 1.0 (was 1.3)
  • Hell on Earth
    • Decreased damage mod 15% 1.23 (was 1.45)

Perks

Gunslinger Perk

  • Leg shot skill
    • Increased the power multiplier so that you can knock down a scrake more easily with this skill selected

Demolition Perk

  • Destroyers of Worlds
    • Increased Nuke damage modifier to 1.5 (was 1.25)
    • Increased the toxic damage after the explosion, it will kill now :)

Difficulty

After releasing the Bullseye update player win rates on Hard multiplayer are much lower than before. To increase this we're reverting ZED behaviors to what they were prior to the update. This means ZEDs will no longer have a chance to do more advanced attacks on Hard difficulty. This does not change ZED behavior on other difficulties

  • Hard global difficulty
    • Medium attack chance set to 0 (was 0.5)
    • Hard attack chance set to 0 (was 0.1)

Bash Attacks

The resistance system was fighting with bash attacks with guns making them feel weak. Even though trash zeds have very little resistance now the damage increase was needed to make them feel more powerful and smash those clot heads.

  • Rifle type damage increased to 25 (was 15)
  • Pistol type damage increased to 20 (was 10)
