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.

Patch 6.5.0

  • QoL (undocumented): Moved the timer for the intermittent Aura Reveal from the Status HUD to the Perk Icon itself.
  • QoL (undocumented): If your aura is hidden from the killer, the intermittent Aura Reveal timer resets. This is most easily done by hiding inside a LockerIconHelp lockersIconHelp lockersIconHelp lockers.


Trivia

  • The original version of 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.

Aura-reading

  • The automatic Aura-reveal interaction between the Killer and the Obsession depends on the Killer's ability to read the Aura of the Obsession.
    • This means that if the Obsession's Aura is shielded by outside effects (i.e. hiding inside a Locker or using the Perk Sole SurvivorIconPerks soleSurvivorIconPerks soleSurvivorIconPerks soleSurvivor) or the Killer is suffering from the BlindnessIconStatusEffects visionIconStatusEffects visionIconStatusEffects vision Status Effect, then neither the Killer's Aura, nor the Obsession's Aura will be shown after the 30 seconds elapse.
    • This also means, however, that if the Killer's Aura is shielded by outside effects (i.e. the UndetectableIconStatusEffects undetectableIconStatusEffects undetectableIconStatusEffects undetectable Status Effect), then the Killer will still see the Obsession's Aura, but the Obsession not the Killer's.
      • Nevertheless, in that scenario, the icon of Object of Obsession will still light up and the Perk will still apply its other effects.
