Back 4 Blood: Karlee Guide

The lone wolf of the Cleaners is more than meets the eye

Karlee doesn’t really associate herself too much with the rest of the Cleaners in Back 4 Blood. Though, by having no real other option to survive the Ridden threat, she has chosen to fight with them. She might be a lone wolf, but definitely has the means of providing huge benefits to her teammates in combat.

What role does Karlee play in Back 4 Blood?

Karlee is an intel/recon character. You may wonder why a recon class would be necessary for a game where you essentially just bash through hordes of zombies. However, there are many things to look out for, specifically for players who are a bit too valiant and kill-hungry. If you are good with callouts, scoping the battlefield, and like to play a utility support role, Karlee is your gal.

Karlee’s abilities

  • Karlee can sense nearby hazards and mutations
  • +1 Quick inventory
  • Team Effect: +50% Team Use Speed

The best weapons to use for Karlee

Karlee is best used as a mid to long range Cleaner, so her ideal weapons would be assault rifles and snipers (if you have incredible aim). She starts off with a Tec 9 auto pistol, so make use of that when enemies get too close for comfort. Of course, this is just a recommendation. Karlee doesn’t benefit from using any weapon type in particular, so it is preferential. She just should not be played as a character who charges the front lines.
