Back 4 Blood: Full Deck Draw Now Possible in June 2022 Update

June 2022 Update
June 2022 Update Turtle Rock Studios

The June 2022 Update for Back 4 Blood is now available on all platforms. This update brings a lot of interesting new features, including Full Deck Draw and a new player kicking system, among others.

One of the most noteworthy features added in the June 2022 Update is the Full Deck Draw. If you are new to Back 4 Blood, the game used to give you a deck that contains 15 cards but only five cards can be drawn at a time. These cards help influence several things. Corruption Cards, for example, provide random modifiers that can make the campaign harder depending on which card is drawn.

That said, the Full Deck Draw feature just allows you to play all 15 cards from your deck at the start of a campaign, and this applies to all difficulty levels.

Another useful feature that was added in this patch is an improved player kicking system. This new system is better at identifying those who misbehave, such as players who are idle for long periods or those who deal too much friendly-fire damage. Once it detects some bad Cleaners, you can have them kicked out of the mission.
