Reworked block mechanic:
– Block stamina (progress bar over the crosshair) is spent gradually each second you block. Full block stamina allows you to take any amount of hits for 5 seconds, no matter how many zombies attack you and how many are killed as a result.
– Each time you spend block stamina, a small portion of equipment charge (progress bar over the equipment icon on the HUD) is also spent. Full block spends half of the charge. If you haven’t blocked incoming damage – you won’t spend any equipment charge.
– You can activate the block even if you’re low on equipment charge, but you’ll also have less block stamina. If you don’t have any equipment charge left, you’ll only have stamina to block a single attack and won’t be able to use block for the next 5 seconds.
