Trivia

  • Struggle Effects describe 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 counters the Struggle Effect reduction of Iron Grasp IconPerks ironGrasp.png.
  • 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-Handed IconPerks open-Handed.png does not increase the distance at which Boil Over obscures Hook IconHelpLoading hook.png Auras.
