Critical chance - can you explain?

Sorry for this very newbie question in advance. Please can someone explain how critical chance works with respect to all categories of survivors? Hunter and shooter charges are automatically critical shots, is that correct? How does crit chance operate outside that? What does a critical shot mean except no bodyshot?

    Hunter, scout and shooter have a guaranteed critical hit on their charge attack.
    Outside of that,
    If there is a body-shot, there can't be a critical hit.
    A charge attack (for any survivor), can not be a body-shot.
    A dodge can reduce a critical hit to a normal hit.

    Calculation for crit chance goes like this:
    BaseCrit% + accurate + luck + powerstrike/sureshot + Critbadges + Critleadertrait.

    @jimmorrison369 sorry for resurrecting an old thread, but are luck still added to the probability for crit chance? I am asking since a guy on discord said it was not but I couldn't find anything on the forum.

    It was confirmed by Fluxxx that luck affects CC just like any other effect, i.e. as a multiplier. So add everything, then multiply by luck.

    Yes, we where falsely informed.
    @Burmeliinis is correct.

    Very useful link to updated lucky info.
    Lucky and CC, is really confusing. It is because game defines lucky as to increase the chance of other TRAITS would take effect. While CC is not a trait.

    As for new traits Critical Aim and Point Blank Shot, lucky affects Critical Aim. I read that few days ago in forum discussion.

    But how about Point Blank Shot??

    Sorry, my mistake, too much things is going on today. I'm getting very tired. Point blank shot is not a chances trait. 😩
