In Back 4 Blood, a player’s playstyle can wildly vary by the character and their card loadout. One card, in particular, is a game-changer when in the right hands, and it’s the “Face Your Fears” card.

Cards act as perks in Back 4 Blood, and they’re divided into four categories. Reflex focuses on speed and agility, Discipline alters the player’s loadout, Brawn deals with a player’s HP, and Fortune can alter a wide variety of other stats. There have been a few cards that have caught on amongst the community as being the essential of every match, and Face Your Fears is pretty high up.

'Face your Fears' Back 4 Blood: How to Use the Card

“Face Your Fears” is a Brawn card, and a very useful one at that. The description states that when equipped, the player will receive a temporary +3 HP buff for every Ridden killed in two meters. It may not sound like much, but when zombies are being trained and the player is backed against the wall, its card slot is worth its weight in gold. 

The card allows the player to become a tank, steadily increasing the health count when they go on a rampage. The trick for this card to draw attention and give allies some breathing room. While the boost is temporary and will fade away over time, as long as the player kills in close range, the extended health bar will remain. 

The card can be acquired by progressing in “There Stilts” supply line. 

Back 4 Blood is now available on Xbox and PlayStation consoles, as well as PC.
