How is the math for this 2 addons?

I ask, because these addons are probably the only useful ones.

The others Addons all have the luck factor.

Video Tape

  • Decreases the charge time to 0,5 seconds.
  • Decreases the miss cool-down by 25 %.

John's Medical File

  • Decreases the charge time by 50 %.

Source code:

Option 1:
Charge time = 0,5 seconds
Charge time = Charge time / 2
Option 2:
Charge time = Charge time / 2
Charge time = 0,5 seconds

    Might’ve just been an oversight from the devs in stating what it’s true purpose is, similar to Award Winning Chili for Leatherface.

    I believe from what you’ve shown and how simple math works is that they clearly either forgot to either A. Change the percentage into a decimal for easier understanding or B. Intended on having both add-ons be percentage based, with one having two benefits, or out of those two, they just messed something up with the value of one of the add-ons and practically made it the same as the other without the benefit.

    On the flashlight, if you put the low amp filament before a battery, it only affect the flashlight but not the battery so you get less use out of your flashlight.

    It might depend which addon you place first if we go by the same logic as survivor items. Since I don't know the base charge time I won't speculate further on this.

    My english is not very good,

    but I think I understand you.

    Now I think an Addon calculator would be nice.


    On the left screen, there are the addons.

    On the right screen, there are all killer numbers(Charge time,RBT,Ambush hit,ect..)

    Then you use addons and the calculator show you,

    what are the new killer numbers(Charge time,RBT,Ambush hit,ect..).

    I mean, this is a great suggestion but by the looks of things, we won't get this in 3 years lol

    It is strange that best pig addons are the common and uncommon addons. These 2 addons you mentioned, last will and combat straps are superior to all the other options that pig has.

    I wonder what the real numbers are as well. This 2 addon combination is really strong.

    Yes, I only use Last Will,Video Tape and John's Medical File.

    Combat straps are not very good, after the little pig buff.

    I was just wondering, if they stack correctly.

    And thanks the entity for the DbD wiki.
