Change Log

Patch 2.5.0

  • Updated the description to reflect that it does not trigger when the Survivor is in the Dying State IconHelp dying.png or affected by Traps.


Trivia

  • It is not advised to use Distortion together with Object of Obsession IconPerks objectOfObsession.png, as it will cause Distortion to rapidly lose Tokens whenever one uses Object of Obsession to read the Killer's Aura, regardless of whether or not the Killer also reads the Survivor's Aura at the same time.
  • If the Survivor is under the effect of Off the Record IconPerks offTheRecord.png, any Aura-reading by the Killer during that period will not activate Distortion, meaning that Scratch Marks will not be hidden.
  • The initial quote in the flavour text is a reference to "Freyja", the Goddess of love, sex, beauty, fertility, gold, seiðr (magic of fortune-telling), war, and death in Norse mythology.
