Back 4 Blood is spamming a large number of special zombies, which has been fixed

Back 4 Blood developer Turtle Rock Studios states that he has fixed a game issue that caused special zombies to appear more often during execution than the developer intended.

If you’ve played Back 4 Blood, you may have noticed that it can be a bit busy. This is especially true when playing some of the later levels of the campaign on higher difficulty settings. The game’s special Ridden (the name of the undead Back 4 Blood) often feels like it’s spawning at an overwhelming rate. After all, Turtle Rock Studios has confirmed that this is unintentional and the result of a bug that causes special enemies to overspawn during execution.

The studio addressed the issue in the meantime November 2021 developer update.. “I found an issue where specials frequently duplicate spawn cards and become more complex as players progress through the levels,” reads the update. “This will often result in an unreasonable amount of specials overwhelming the cleaner team.”

After finding the issue, the developer states that it needs to be fixed as part of an update patch released earlier this week. This should help balance a little more later in the Back 4 Blood campaign, but the studio will “help us dig into spawn issues and make the experience even smoother” in a later update. Also continues.

In addition to fixing the frequency of specials spawned in the game, this month’s Back 4 Blood update includes many other changes. In addition to various common bug fixes and improvements, the studio listened to community feedback and said the game implemented some highly demanded quality of life updates. Among them are the ability to disable in-game voice chat, unlock all cleaner characters from the start of the game, and unlock all previous chapters after completing a campaign chapter. I have.
