Lethal Shield Overloads
This makes shield overloads from Shotgun Zombies and Carcasses damage you, but also deal more damage against enemies.
This mod makes the explosions of overloading a Shieldguy’s shield or a Carcass’ barrier damage you, while also increasing their AoE and damage vs. enemies.
The goal of this mod is twofold:
– Make the player less likely to go ‘I see Shieldguy -> I pull out Plasma Rifle’ by making the prospect of safely overloading shields more situational.
– Increase the damage and AoE of shield overloading to make overloading shields more worthwhile to do on higher levels of gameplay.
* Shield/Barrier overloads now deal damage to the player. They deal 30/39/45/60 HP damage on ITYTD/HMP/UV/NM respectively.
* Increased Barrier overload damage to enemies from 250 to 1500, and increased Shield overload damage to enemies from 500 to 1500.
* Increased Shield overload AoE by 100%, and Barrier overload AoE by 33% (both have the exact same AoE now).
* Being damaged by an overload plays the blue static effect on the UI to indicate you were damaged by it.
