Change Log

Patch 2.3.0

  • Buff: removed the while standing still condition from Tiers I & II.
  • Nerf: lowered the sound reduction percentage to 75 % on Tier II.

Patch 5.1.0

  • Buff: Grunts of Pain and Breathing are now multiplicative values.


Old Breathing Volumes

Note: the following information no longer applies as of Patch 5.1.0

The percentages on both Iron Will and its Killer-pendant Stridor IconPerks stridor.png were misleading in their interaction with one another, as contrary to the popular perception of percentages, they did not represent actual percentages in the Game code, but rather numeric values that were combined additively.
This was ultimately changed with Patch 5.1.0.

A good analogy was a volume slider ranging from 0 to 100, which can also go above 100 if necessary.

  • Positive values moved the volume slider upwards, increasing the volume.
  • Negative values moved the volume slider downwards, lowering the volume.

Iron Will III (-100) 0 25 50


Trivia

  • Iron Will only affects Grunts of Pain. It does not decrease the sound of the regular breathing all Survivors make across all Health States.
  • Iron Will does not work while in the Dying State IconHelp dying.png.
  • In the old Game Manual Iron Will features a different flavour text: "This is nothing!"
