Effective Health formula[edit | edit source]

Players may consider this item as a direct reduction on enemies health diminishing it to 93.4%

To calculate the effective health of an enemy for every crowbar after the first use the following formula:

100 - { [ 0.50 + ( 0.30 x n°crowbars_after_the_first ) ] x [ 20 / ( 1 + 0.5 + ( 0.30 x n°crowbars_after_the_first ) ] }

In case the player isn't using an ability that deals heavy amounts of damage, the Crowbar will have less and less impact on the damage output.

Character Synergies[edit | edit source]

  • The Sniper makes excellent use of the Crowbar, as it pairs well with Steady Aim to deal severe damage to newly spawned monsters and bosses.
  • The Bandit can also make good use of the Crowbar with Lights Out, dealing heavy damage to targets.

Item Synergies[edit | edit source]

The Crowbar item works wonders to almost all items that proc on-hit, since the damage calculated by the Crowbar is the base calculation of other items.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

The Crowbar item is a reference to the Half Life series created by Valve, in which the main character Gordon Freeman uses a crowbar similar to the one depicted as his melee weapon.

  • The text "Until the 3rd version arrives" is a dig at the long production time of the half life series and Valve's seeming dislike of the number 3, going as far as making Half Life 1, 2 and Half Life 2 episodes 1 and 2. Because of this, Half Life 3 has become a well known point of humor on the internet joking about how it will never come out.
