Change Log

Patch 3.4.0

  • Quality of Life: no longer shows its icon in the Survivors' HUD until its effect is actually applied.
    • This change prevents Coulrophobia from acting as a visual warning whenever a Survivor enters the Terror Radius.

Patch 6.1.0

  • Buff: now increases the Rotation speed of Skill Checks, making succeeding more challenging.


Trivia

  • "Coulrophobia" literally means "Fear of Clowns".
    • It is a compound word consisting of "kōlobathristēs" the Greek word for stilt-walker and "-phobia" the Greek suffix used to form nouns describing a fear of a specific thing.
  • Back when Snapping Out of It was still considered a Healing Action, Coulrophobia did not affect it, a decision that was made on purpose as the Developers deemed an interaction between the two too strong.
