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, which determines the rewards at the end of the mission.

Normal Scaling[edit | edit source]

Depending on the selected Hazard level and the amount of players in a game, the difficulty is dynamically adjusted through several factors:

  • Increased Hazard Level increases: enemy and environmental damage; friendly fire; as well as health after a revive.
  • Increased player count increases enemy damage even further.
  • Additionally, Hazard 5 reduces the maximum health the player will regenerate to, from 15% to 5%.
  • The Hazard Level will also affect wave modifiers, such as "time until the next wave" and the enemy composition.

Below is a table listing several modifiers for each Hazard Level ( x / x / x / x denotes the amount of players in the game).

Resistance Scaling[edit | edit source]

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.

For damage resistances:

*When spawned via Mixer Interactivity they count as normal enemies.

There is only a small increase of enemy spawns between Solo and 2 Player to compensate for the loss of Bosco.
