Change Log

Patch 2.6.0

  • Buff: changed the Terror Radius modifiers to 8 metres across all Tiers.
  • Quality of Life: changed the Field of View modifiers from adjectives to numbers 3/5/10 °.


Trivia

  • Monitor & Abuse's description was changed from its in-game version to how it actually works in coding.
    The resulting effect of +8 metres in Chase and -8 metres when not remains the same.
    • This also better reflects Monitor & Abuse's interaction with other Terror-Radius-affecting Perks:
      In essence, their modifiers will be applied to the new base Terror Radius, with the temporary out-of-chase reduction being applied on top of that value.
  • An increased Field of View affects the angle from which Survivors can attempt to blind the Killer.
  • The default Killer FOV is set at 87 °.
