Sorry for the newb question but: when calculating percentages, which number does one take into consideration. For example, I’m trying to find out what +7% Damage would be

This contains: weapon, traits, hero buffs and stuff.

Add to that your badges that do + flat value.

Multiply them by the % that the %badge does.

Add the base damage and flat values.

So

(base damage + badgesflat) x (100 + %badge) / 100%

2,065Survivor base damage +

Marksman/strong damage +

hero damage +

weapon +

lethal damage +

Badge flat value damage

Add them all together and multiply by (100% + Badges%)/100%

2,065(survivor_damage*(1+hero+marksman)+Weapon_damage*(1+lethal)+Flatbadge)*(1+badge%)

2,065If your survivor has NO badges:

You can just use the damage number on your survivor screen.

%badges will get multiplied by that number.

+badges just will get added.

If you have +badges on your survivor.

Then you can still do the same.

If you have %badges on the survivor.

Then you need to remove the percentage from the number on your screen.

Then add the % badges together and use that number to multiply again.

Example:

Survivor has already 10% badge.

Currently it has 3300 damage.

If you add another badge of 10%

Then together you have 20% damage badges.

But first you need to know what your base damage is.

3300 damage is 110%, you need to know 100%

3300/110*100= 3000

Then

3000*(100%+20%)/100% = 3600

3300/(100%+10%)*(100%+20%)

or

3300/(1+B%)*(1+Bnew%) = 3600

Edit-

In above example.

If you then add a +damage badge of +333 damage.

The +333 will get increased by the already present 20% damage boost.

So +333 will actually be 400 when you add the badge to the survivor.

333*1.2=400

3600+400 =4000
