New question in the "Trying to understand what I'm doing" series: Criticals

I tried to sum up all that I know about criticals atm (which can be incorrect in parts or as a whole):
1) Bodyshot is calculated first  if there's a bodyshot, no critical is possible
2) The critical chance must depend on a few factors, like:
a) Lvl difference of the two units  is there a formula to calculate critical chance?
b) Being stunned or not (< I used to "know" attacks against stunned targets are 100% critical, but it doesn't seem to work. More critical for sure, but not 100%)
c) Anything else? Eg. being in cover?
3) Is there a base critical chance? Is it the same for all survivor classes or are there differences?
4) How does "more critical" work? Let's say I have a critical chance of like 20% and an increased critical about 20%. What are my actual chances? 20+20=40% or 20 * 1.2 = 24%?
5) Can armor piercing and critical work the same time? Let's say I'm shooting at a +4 lvl walker: guaranteed bodyshot, but armor piercing saves me. Can that shot be critical?
Thanks!

1, I believe the criticals from charge attacks (hunter, shooter) ignore bodyshots. As in, they are an exception on that rule.szgerg77 said:I tried to sum up all that I know
Thanks!
2, only stunned by bruiser garantees criticals, not stunned by assault.
3, there is, but all I know is: warrior has 30% base critical against same lvl walkers. I've tested this.
4, the way it is worded isn't that ambiguous mostly. 30% more critical chance heavily suggests +30%.
5, a big fat yes.1
