Hazard Levels[edit | edit source]

Hazard levels along with player count determine the amount of enemies present in a mission and during swarms, as well as an increase to the amount of damage they can absorb and the amount of damage they deal to players. Hazard Levels contribute to a Hazard Bonus, starting with +25% bonus at 1-Low Risk and increasing in 25% intervals to 100% bonus at 4-Extreme.

Scaling[edit | edit source]

On higher Hazard levels and with more players, the threats players face increases.

  • Increased Hazard Levels increase enemy damage and friendly fire.
  • Increased player count increase enemy counts and enemy damage weakness, but do not affect enemy damage and friendly fire.
  • Hazard 5 disables health regeneration and lowers health received from revives.

Shown below is a table of multipliers for Enemy Damage and Friendly Fire, only affected by Hazard Level.

*Explosive friendly fire is reduced by a further 50%

Shown below is a table of multipliers for enemy count and enemy damage weakness. (Separated by size classification), only affected by the amount of players and hazard level. The enemy damage weakness is a modifier to all damage dealt to enemies by players.

Damage dealt to enemy = Damage of Weapon / Modifier.
