Trivia

  • Knock Out applies the deafening sound effect to Survivors afflicted by it.
  • Knock Out used to be trumped by various Perks that allowed Survivors to see their injured peers, but this was changed in Patch 4.1.0.

  • 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 RadiusIconHelp terrorRadiusIconHelp terrorRadiusIconHelp terrorRadius, depending on the number of Survivors left in the Trial.
