Trivia[]

  • On the 6.6.0 PTB, Background Player activated upon unhooking another Survivor, and had a sprint duration of 6 seconds.
    • The Perk was reworked for the Live release, as the Developers decided that it left the unhooked Survivor too vulnerable.
  • Background Player will be prioritised over and trump Sprint BurstIconPerks sprintBurstIconPerks sprintBurstIconPerks sprintBurst, given that the activation conditions are met.
