Trivia

  • Lullabies do not give any progression towards Tokens.
    • Neither does a fake Terror Radius induced by MadnessIconStatusEffects madnessIconStatusEffects madnessIconStatusEffects madness when facing The DoctorIconHelpLoading doctorIconHelpLoading doctorIconHelpLoading doctor, which gives Diversion the added functionality of knowing whether you are inside his actual Terror Radius or not.
  • Diversion is often endearingly referred to as Pebble.
  • Thrown pebbles do not collide with walls, objects, props and other characters.
    • The landing zone spawning the Loud Noise notification and the Scratch Marks will therefore always be 20 metres away from the Perk user.
  • If used in combination with Self-AwareIconPerks fixatedIconPerks fixatedIconPerks fixated, the Perk user will be able to see the Scratch Marks created at the landing zone.
  • Diversion timer does not activate if the Survivor is affected by the ObliviousIconStatusEffects obliviousIconStatusEffects obliviousIconStatusEffects oblivious Status Effect.
