Change Log

Patch 4.7.0

  • Rework: reworked Object of Obsession to mitigate its more abusive nature.
    • Reveals the Killer's Aura when they read the Survivor's, allowing for the Survivor to deduce which Aura-reading Perk the Killer is using, and granting a slight boost of 2/4/6 % to Repairing, Healing and Cleansing speeds.
    • If the Survivor is also the Killer's Obsession, their Aura is revealed for 3 seconds every 30 seconds.


Trivia

  • Old Object of Obsession was a controversial Perk amongst the Community, often used by one Survivor in a Survive with Friends group to stake out and relay the Killer's actions and location to their fellow team mates while keeping their distance.
