How to Play as Evangelo in Back 4 Blood

In this Back 4 Blood guide, we will go into details on how to play as the speedy Cleaner, Evangelo. We will explain Evangelo’s character abilities, best cards and how to utilize him effectively in Back 4 Blood.

How to Play as Evangelo in Back 4 Blood

At the start of your Back 4 Blood campaign, Evangelo is one of the characters available right from the beginning. He’s a quick-witted cleaner who knows how to get out of tight situations and this is reflected in his abilities.

He’s a lighthearted speedster character that’s perfect for any new player. Evangelo can regularly break away from the team whilst remaining maneuverable and slippery from the clutches of the Ridden.


Evangelo’s abilities are as follows:

  • Born Survivor: Increased break-out speed by 75%.
  • Fit: Can regenerate stamina 25%
  • Light Footed: Provides team with a speed of +5%.
  • Firestarter: Begin with a Molotov cocktail

As you can see, Evangelo has a lot of impressive abilities which can help you in Back 4 Blood. With his ability to break free from grabs, he can avoid unwanted downs and fatalities due to a lack of team coordination.

Furthermore, because of Evangelo’s enhanced basic stamina and movement speed, he can also be used to lure opponent aggression and attention and even increase the mobility of other cleaners a bit.

Starting with a Molotov can be good for crowd control, but it’s not as game-changing as the rest of Evangelo’s kit.

Best Weapons for Evangelo

Normally, Evangelo starts with a machete, which you should keep in your possession. You can switch to various melee weapons that fit your style better.

Horizontal swinging weapons should be used to deal with smaller fry, while fire axes and hatchets should be used to strike larger targets with harder-to-hit areas.

He can utilize virtually any weapon as his second weapon. It depends on your comfort level, but ideally, he should disperse crowds with firearms that are better for numerous targets. To do this, use an assault rifle or a sub-machine gun.

Best Cards for Evangelo

Evangelo would benefit from anything that increases his movement speed or stamina.

His already increased stamina can be bolstered with any combination of cards that further increase it to get good synergy with his intended playstyle. Evangelo can also benefit from various melee boosts for hit and run tactics!
