Change Log[]

Patch 6.1.0[]

  • Buff: increased the Regression penalty from -6 % to -10 %.
  • Buff: increased the duration of the Incapacitated Status Effect from 12/14/16 seconds to 15/20/25 seconds.

Patch 6.6.0[]

  • Rework: now reveals the AurasIconHelp aurasIconHelp aurasIconHelp auras of Survivors repairing an affected Generator for 12 seconds instead of applying the Incapacitated Status Effect.
  • Change: modified the behaviour of the triggered Survivor screams to be consistent across all Unlockables:
    • Survivor screams are now 3D with a maximum audible range of 19 metres (used to be a map-wide 2D scream).
    • Triggers a Loud Noise Notification.

Patch 6.6.2[]

  • Reversal: reverted the behaviour of Survivor screams to their original functionality.
    • The reversal was motivated by the community's negative response to the range limit, which caused the Perks to end up weaker than before.


Trivia[]

  • The NE-α parasite referenced in the description of Eruption is a genetically-engineered parasite created by Umbrella as a work-around for brain damage caused by the T-Virus. When successful, subjects demonstrated human level intelligence, and the parasite could manipulate the host into handling weapons.
  • Eruption is the first Killer Perk to feature a quote by a Survivor.
  • Eruption's trigger condition extends to all outside sources that put the Survivor into the Dying State. This includes Add-ons, Killer Powers, and Survivor actions in which the Killer does not down the Survivors themselves, such as the TrapperIconHelpLoading trapperIconHelpLoading trapperIconHelpLoading trapper using the Honing StoneIconAddon honingStoneIconAddon honingStoneIconAddon honingStone, a Survivor being downed by a Zombie, Survivors entering the Dying State after Deep WoundIconStatusEffects deepWoundIconStatusEffects deepWoundIconStatusEffects deepWound elapses and Survivors downing themselves using Plot TwistIconPerks plotTwistIconPerks plotTwistIconPerks plotTwist.
