Change Log

Patch 2.4.0

  • Buff: now spawns Scratch Marks IconHelp scratchMarks.png at the location of where the pebble lands.

Patch 4.5.0

  • Buff: changed the Throw ranges to be 20 metres across all Tiers.
  • Buff: reduced the Charge time and made it a variable (40/35/30 seconds).


Trivia

  • 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-Aware IconPerks fixated.png, the Perk user will be able to see the Scratch Marks created at the landing zone.
