New Survivor Traits: Do I need them?

Looking to hear from end-game players about their opinions on these 3 new character traits. Right now I'm sitting pretty with a 7* survivor of every class except bruiser (any day now). I'm locally ranked, I get 1,000+ stars each week, and I can typically 3* all of RSL 26 and will wrestle through 27+ if I have the time. I only play outposts to grab the TG and bounce; I'm not concerned with my influence ranking. You get the idea of the kind of player I am. Here are my current survivor traits:

All melee classes:
Lucky
Dodge
Iron Skin
Strong
Retaliate

Hunter:
Lucky
Dodge
Iron Skin
Marksman
Sure Shot

Shooter:
Lucky
Dodge
Marksman
Sure Shot
Bullet Dodge

Assault:
Lucky
Dodge
Bullet Dodge
Iron Skin
Marksman

I also have a 6* shooter and legendary assault with the same traits as my hunter. Once I build them up, I'll have what I consider to be perfect traits in every class. Given my current lineup and my player style, would I be missing out if I just overlooked the new traits? They don't seem bad at all, but just not necessary given what I have. Would trait combinations involving these new traits enhance my game and help me push farther at all? Getting everyone to 7* has taken lots of time, tokens, and crappy promotions. Don't really want to go through that all again haha. Let me know what you guys think.

TL;DR - what are good survivor trait combinations using the new traits that will be effective for high RSL challenge maps?

    @Warlord right - Bruisers would actually become much more effective as meat shields if they could do that!

    You don't want to try the new trait yourself?

    I'll try them as I get them. I'm just curious if there's players who now deem them vital on specific survivor builds.

    > @JayZ. With retaliate, it would be interesting. Once for your attack, you get attacked and retaliate fires giving you a second and then punish fires giving you a third attack in one turn. Would be interested to know if it works that way. It should based off of the descriptions.

    Along those same lines-

    Would revenge and retaliate work together? I'm thinking about situations like 14.5 nightmare. Three ranged survivors with both those traits all get hit. Would they shoot back a total of six times?

    What are the new traits? Can someone point me to exactly where each new trait is shown and described? Thanks in advance

    @Teeceezy is that how that combination would work as intended?

    @Avengers If he was a survivor you got before this update, he wouldn't be able to get the new traits anyway. Only survivors found after the 2.6 update can have the possibility of receiving the new traits upon promotion.
