Barricades are a piece of equipment used by the Survivors in Cold Comfort. The Survivors have an unlimited number of barricades able to be placed on windows or doors to prevent the Gamma Prime from having a line of sight, and slowing down their progression. Barricades can be easily identified as they are wooden boards.
Normal barricades can easily be destroyed (by both teams) with a special attack or with three melee hits.
Since they break the Gamma Prime’s line of sight, it is recommended to, if possible, place them all around the objective, which will also slow them down and reveal their location upon hearing a barricade being destroyed. It is also viable to place them around popular breach points that will ultimately allow the Gamma Prime easier access to the objective if not done otherwise. Doing this away from the objective may also confuse Gamma Prime controlling rats during the preparation phase as to the objectives true location if it is not already known. It is advised to not place barricades between Survivors or objectives in adjacent rooms as it will slow Survivor movement in the area and make it harder to provide support to teammates.
Knox features the unique ability to place three reinforced barricades which are extremely resistant and take between 12-20 melee hits to destroy.
In addition to the barricades, Cold Comfort features a variety of traps, both for the Survivors as well as the Gamma Prime.
