Evil Dead June 20 Update: Balancing Changes to Hunters and Demons

Evil Dead Epic Games

Evil Dead recently received an update that brought several balancing changes for survivors, skills, and more.


The Hunters got a small nerf from the survivor group. Their stamina regeneration is reduced from 35 stamina points to 20 stamina points per second. This change should make Hunters wisely spend their stamina or suffer the consequences.

The developers also made some changes to the Kandarian Demons. Infernal Energy is the most important resource for demons because they need it to use their abilities, such as summon enemies and possess stuff. This update buffed the Infernal Energy regeneration from 15 points to 20 points per second during the Necronomicon phase, which should encourage spamming of abilities.
