Change Log

Patch 4.1.0

  • Nerf: now only triggers on Basic Attacks.
  • Buff: now causes downed Survivors to temporarily have no Aura-reading abilities and to crawl at a slower pace.


Trivia

  • Knock Out used to be trumped by various Perks that allow Survivors to see their injured peers, but this was changed with Knock Out's changes in Patch 4.1.0.

In the Dark

  • In the Dark was an earlier version of Knock Out, and is still the name of it in the Game files.
    • Instead of the current effect, it would have increasingly reduced the Killer's Terror Radius IconHelp terrorRadius.png, depending on the number of Survivors left in the Trial.
