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

  • According to Monitor & Abuse's code, it works slightly differently to its description from a technical Point of View:
    • Monitor & Abuse increases the Killer's base Terror Radius by 8 metres for the entire Trial and applies a reduction of 16 metres whenever the Killer is outside of a Chase.
      • This results in the same behaviour as described by the Perk, but changes how other Unlockables affecting the Killer's Terror Radius will interact with Monitor & Abuse, as their modifiers will be applied to the 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 °.
