# Charged / Critical attack BUG. Now with Badges!

All traits like Charging, Ruthless, Destructive and even Base Critical Damage Multiplier are not taking into account damage boosting badges. At all.

Therefore all Charged and Critical attacks calculated incorrectly and deal less damage than they should.

So. Here is +X Damage Badges:

They increase base damage from 3505 to 4600.

Now Damage of this survivor is 4600. Period.

Here come traits, like Charging and Ruthless,

they say that "Your Charge Attacks deal +X% damage" where "damage" is your survivor's Damage (in this case 4600).

Ruthless 17% on survivor + 30% on armor = +47%, Charging on weapon 15%, total increase is 17%+30%+15% = 62%, so we will multiply all charged attacks by 1.62.

Critical attack for shooter is +50% damage, so we will multiply all critical attacks by 1.5

Charged attack should be 4600*1.5*1.62 = 11178

Not Charged Critical attack should be 4600*1.5 = 6900

But they are NOT.

On average they are:

Charged = 9596 (16% less than it should, and with Destructive trait it can be 20% less)

Critical = 6318 (9.2% less than it should, and with Destructive trait it can be 15% less).

All this happens because all traits' multipliers applied only to survivor's damage WITHOUT badges.

Calculation goes like this:

3505*1.5+1095 = 6353, while it should be:

4600*1.5 = 6900

And

3505*1.5*1.62+1095 = 9612, while it should be:

4600*1.5*1.62 = 11178.

Spreadsheet with 120 attacks is attached.

**In this case All Traits and Critical Attack think that damage of survivor is 3505 (not 4600).**

But it is clearly 4600But it is clearly 4600

834You can see that normal damage is consistently "normal", all damage with multipliers (crits and charged) is off.

7621,928"Increase damage on charge attack by x%" (badges excluded)

834Hey guys, I can't take all the credit this time, so I'll just tag @Monsuta and @jimmorrison369 here.

1,168There is NO higher rarity when we use all legendary to craft the badge, we are being punished for having a chance to getLOWERrarity.This is NOT WORKING AS INTENDED & it's UNFAIR.10729"Really? Good luck with that!"

4,501I'm surprised there's been no response from devs.

(Or am I)

TJS - Member of W-SNation Wars 🇦🇺 Australian Team Captain401103,576247762The trait is twofold: This description is for the Gold level Charging trait -

30% chance to get an extra charge point from a kill, charge attacks do 15% more damage

3,5761,550...

Remember to use your charge abilities

1,392I swear we had been told that the modifiers from badges applied to our base amounts, but I'm going to have to do some searching to find out if that was said and who the source was.

But it’s not the better wolf that wins. It’s the one you feed.

@Bill_ZRTa message to join DTP today!834Working as intended in my pants.THIS - is just sloppy craftsmanship. And don't try to tell us otherwise.

You should RE-review both the code and logic thoroughly.

If damage of survivor is 4600 and traits say: "Your Charge Attacks deal +X% damage" - it should deal 4600*1.X damage, NOT LESS, because of stupid incorrect calculations.

4661,168SHOULDbe taken into calculationBEFOREmultiplying@PR0DJ @jimmorrison369 Should we start another research to see if this illogical damage calculation happened to our health badge & damage reduction badge too?

There is NO higher rarity when we use all legendary to craft the badge, we are being punished for having a chance to getLOWERrarity.This is NOT WORKING AS INTENDED & it's UNFAIR.1,399Wtf

1,928That way I can make an educated evaluation of traits and badges.

But about damage reduction and health, they don't interact.

Your critical damage depends on your damage.

Your damage reduction does not depend on your health.
