Cover is an object that offers extra protectiont against ranged attacks. Cover gives a +70 % bonus of its base cover value to Evasion, plus a +35 % bonus to Accuracy. For instance, spikes barricades have 60 Cover, so they give a +42 % bonus to Evasion and a +21 % to Accuracy. Some types of cover can be built in your base as defensive structures, while others can only be found during combat missions.

Tips & tricksEdit

  • Cover is the best advantage for the player in combat. Try to fight always with as many survivors in cover as possible.
  • If you find a spot with cover for everyone use it to set an ambush: position carefully your team there and send someone with a high Evasion to lure your enemies to your trap. 
  • Only ranged attacks get the Accuracy bonus. 
  • Point blank ranged attacks ignore cover (but also get a -30 % penalty to Accuracy for using a ranged weapon in close combat). 
  • Melee attacks ignore cover.
