Change Log

Patch 5.5.0

  • Buff: increased the intensity of the Struggle Effects from 25/50/75 % to 50/75/100 %.
  • Buff: increased the Aura-obscuring range from 10/12/14 metres to 16 metres across all Tiers.
  • Buff: added a tertiary effect:
    • Now adds 25 % to the Wiggle Meter if the Killer drops from great heights while carrying the Survivor.

Patch 5.5.2

  • Nerf: changed the tertiary effect to base its Progression bonus on the Survivor's current Wiggle progression, awarding 33 % of it, rather than a blanket bonus of +25 % of the maximum.
    • This change is considered a nerf, as the new resulting bonus is lower than the old 25 % whenever the Survivor's Wiggle progression is below 75 %.

Patch 5.7.0

  • Nerf: (Tiers II & III) reduced the intensity of the Struggle Effects from 50/75/100 % to 60/70/80 %.
    • This change was done due to some Players experiencing significant issues navigating certain Maps, beyond the intended impact of Boil Over.

Trivia

  • Struggle Effects refer to the Killer's involuntary side-to-side movement (also known as "strafing"), caused by the Survivor wiggling on the Killer's shoulder.
    • Boil Over increases this effect, giving the Killer a harder time to counter the effects with their movement keys, generally leading to more frequent bumping into obstacles, allowing for a greater chance to wiggle free before the Hook is reached.
  • Boil Over overpowers the Struggle Effect reduction of Iron GraspIconPerks ironGraspIconPerks ironGraspIconPerks ironGrasp.
  • Boil Over only obscures a Killer's Hook Aura-reading during carrying.
    They can still see a nearby Hook's Aura during the pick-up animation.
  • Open-HandedIconPerks open-HandedIconPerks open-HandedIconPerks open-Handed does not increase the distance at which Boil Over obscures HookIconHelpLoading hookIconHelpLoading hookIconHelpLoading hook Auras.
  • As a Killer, you will see a small Boil Over red icon to the left of your Perks when you are carrying a Survivor with Boil Over equipped.
