Cold Blood Explained

Cold Blood Buff

Cold Blood gives players one stack of the Cold Blood buff for each kill made. A stack lasts for 10 seconds at perk level 1, maxing out at 3 stacks once Cold Blood reaches level 3.

The Cold Blood buff gives players different boosts depending on which perks under the Cold Blood Skill Tree are unlocked. Some reduce weapon recoil, some provide armor for each stack of the Cold Blood buff, while others increase healing both inside and outside of combat.

Unlike other specialized passive perks, Cold Blood can synergize with different character builds due to the amount of buffs players can pick and choose from.

    • In the crafting screen, would love to see a comparison between what I'm currently equipped with vs what I've selected to craft. In the Inventory screen, I have no idea where any extra weight is without going into each category (weapons, clothes, etc). Please add some sort of weight indicator next to each category so I know exactly where I seem to be overloaded. In the Map, please mark completed items (assault in progress, access points), grey out the icons or something similar?

    • I do not receive a prize for completing last quest things as, an implant berserker and gorilla's hands, a key from the drawing of a smart shotgun from adam smasher
