This has actually been a burning question I have had for the longest time now. How does the "Dodge" mechanic in Payday 2 really work? To my (vague) knowledge, dodge allows you to basically avoid damage. Essentially, rather than simply increasing the damage you can take, it reduces the damage that you take. However, I still don't understand how it works precisely.
- For starters, what do the dodge values represent?
For example, how much better is having 50 Dodge as compared to having 20 Dodge? Does your amount of dodge represent your percentage chance of dodging a bullets?
- Secondly, when can you dodge?"
When do you begin to dodge bullets? It is completely random, where you would dodge random incoming projectiles?
- Lastly, what can you dodge?
Are you able to dodge anything? For example, apart from your usual bullets, can you dodge sniper shots, explosive damage or Cloaker hits?
