Since its launch a few weeks ago, players from Back 4 Blood They have done nothing more than express their disgust at the excessive difficulty of the campaign. Luckily, the developers heard the complaints loud and clear.
Following complaints from fans, Turtle Rock Studios made the game a bit easier after they released an update in October that lowered the drop rate for Ridden specials on all difficulties. However, the above was far from solving the merciless peaks of difficulty that plague the entire experience.

Luckily, the developers listened to fan concerns and recently released a patch that will hopefully make games much more manageable.
