Change Log

Patch 3.1.0

  • Buff: removed the Basic Attack condition
    • Infectious Fright now triggers whenever a Survivor is put into the Dying State by any means.

Patch 3.4.0

  • Nerf (undocumented): no longer affects Survivors that are hiding in Lockers.

Patch 6.6.0

  • 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.
