This title though it is not a simple copy of the historic Valve title but it differs in several respects, such as for example characters. The various survivors that you can control in fact they will not differ only aesthetically, but also in terms of skills. To help you master all these varied characters we have therefore decided to write a series of guides, and in this we will explain how to best use Hoffman.

Ready for everything

Before we start talking to you about how to use Hoffman, we want to briefly introduce you to this particular character from Back 4 Blood. This middle-aged man has always believed all fools conspiracy theories in which he came across and it will be this particular characteristic that will give him an edge over the other survivors of the game. In fact, Hoffman has always suspected the imminent arrival of a zombie invasion, and for this reason he was more than prepared at the time of the apocalypse. This character is indeed capable of play a very useful support role for the whole team which will allow you to be very advantaged even during the most complex missions. Below you can find them all Hoffman's main skills:

  • Whenever you kill an infected you will have a chance to find ammo
  • You have an additional slot for offensive equipment
  • The whole team gets a 10% bonus to the maximum ammo capacity

Best Weapons - Back 4 Blood: How to use Hoffman best

Hoffman's big advantage is his ability to generate ammo by killing enemies and for this reason we advise against equipping him with close-range weapons. In fact, the melee equipment will not allow you to bring out even a shred of the potential of this very powerful character.

To make the most of Hoffman we recommend that you bring as many of them with you automatic firearms possible. The best choices are assault rifles like the AK-47 and LMGs such as the M249, but in case of need or as a secondary you can also use machine guns. Thanks to weapons of this type you will in fact be able to eliminate a large number of minor infected and generate so much extra ammo for you and your team. Sure, you may have a hard time with the more powerful infected, but your teammates will be able to defend you thanks to the additional bullets you can provide them.
