Backpack Battles – Hot Take Cards: Tips and Tricks

Useful Tips and Tricks

Useful Information:

  • Cards activation speed is effected by things that increase speed
  • Fanny Pack, heat, Gloves, Jynx bird,
  • Lovers and Ace both have additional effects depending on their placement
  • Blue Eyes Dragon gives you armor and opponent slow
  • Lovers and Charizard both “deal” DMG and as such can crit
  • Dark lotus gives mana and for each mana over 10 it removes a buff
  • 4th slot in deck gives 12 mana = 2 buffs removed

General Tips:

  • Lovers is decent early game but falls off around round 8~10, vs any poison potion build you dont want to heal
  • Cards still activate and deal DMG even if you are stunned so vs Hammer Dagger
  • Coffin sells for 10 gold and gives slots = 2 ruckpacks which is 8 gold or 4 if both on sale
  • Spike shields early game help
  • Customer card early is IMPORTANT, allowing you to grab early charizards
  • Earliest charizard i’ve found is round 5
  • Save gold till epics and legendaries have higher shop % as you want blue eyes and charizards mostly

Set Up Tips:

  • Like any reaper run, start with pan and food saving packs on sale and any fanny packs
  • Ace gives spikes so stacking a couple early in deck can help vs quick attacking builds
  • Blue Eyes Draon; Despite the armor increasing per card activated before, it is better to stack them early in deck so you stack slow and give starting armor
  • Do NOT run any weapons once you have 2~3 charizards, as the weapon atk will steal the Ace card’s crit where we want the charizard to get that crit
  • Try to run 1~3 dark lotus for buff removal and also to activate books of light, as such try to run 1~3 book of lights

So Whats The DMG Like?

  • End game comps ive average the end of card chains doing ~120-160 every 1.4s

In-Game Example Comps:

Mid Game

Mid – Late Game

Late Game

Late Game

Early Game

Mid Game

Trying to pivot away from early game lovers, replacing with blue eyes.

Very Early Game Start

Most Optimal Layout For All Cards:

Stacking cards so that early deck you go something like:

SD = Starting deck, BE = Blue eyes, A = Ace, L=Lovers, CZ = Charizard, DL = Dark Lotus

  • SD – BE A BE A BE A DL BE

You will end with;

  • 6 spike, 6 luck
  • 93 armor
  • 10 mana
  • Remove 11 buffs from opponent

Pair this with book of light so you use the 10 mana and get invul

Beyond this you could stack more books and more DL or you can start doing dmg with CZ, you need to pay attention to what the max hp is for your round and how much dmg you will do.

Figuring out DMG

  • Always have an ace activate before a CZ, this doesnt have to be the card right before but no lovers in between A and CZ
  • Use the layout i provided to compare dmg

Slot # = Dmg Dealt

  • 2 = 10 (no ace)
  • 3 = 28
  • 4 = 36
  • 5 = 44
  • 6 = 52
  • 7 = 60
  • 8 = 68
  • 9 = 76
  • 10 = 84
  • 11 = 92
  • 12 = 100
  • 13 = 108
  • 14 = 116
  • 15 = 124
  • 16 = 132
  • 17 = 140
  • 18 = 148
  • 19 = 156
  • 20 = 164
  • 21 = 172
  • 22 = 180
  • 23 = 188
  • 24 = 196
  • 25 = 204
  • 26 = 212
  • 27 = 220

Remember you need an A between but they also deal said dmg back to back.

Expanding example above adding dmg:

  • SD – BE A BE A BE A DL BE CZ(84) A CZ(100) A CZ(116)

Total: 300 dmg in 4.75s

That is only 2 procs of regen if they have any left after DL, also this isnt melee atks so no shield armor is procing

I turned my love for games from a hobby into a job back in 2005, since then working on various gaming / entertainment websites. But in 2016 I finally created my first website about video games – Gameplay Tips. And exactly 4 years later, Game Cheat Codes was created – my second website dedicated to legal game cheats. My experience with games started back in 1994 with the Metal Mutant game on ZX Spectrum computer. And since then, I’ve been playing on anything from consoles, to mobile devices.
