Whenever you are inside the Terror RadiusIconHelp terrorRadiusIconHelp terrorRadiusIconHelp terrorRadius, Scene Partner activates:

  • Looking at the Killer causes you to scream, which reveals their AuraIconHelp aurasIconHelp aurasIconHelp auras for 3/4/5 seconds.
  • There is a chance of 50 % that you will scream again, extending the Aura-reveal duration by another 2 seconds.

Scene Partner has a cool-down of 60 seconds.

  • Scene Partner should not be used together with Calm SpiritIconPerks calmSpiritIconPerks calmSpiritIconPerks calmSpirit or HardenedIconPerks hardenedIconPerks hardenedIconPerks hardened.
    • Calm Spirit will suppress the scream and prevent Scene Partner from activating altogether.
    • Hardened will effectively trump Scene Partner and cause the same Aura-reading effect to trigger from its own activation condition instead.
  • Scene Partner's secondary effect can activate multiple times in a row (see above), potentially causing a Survivor to scream several times, while greatly extending the duration of the Aura-reveal.
    • Any additional screams will happen automatically at a constant interval and do not require that the Player continues looking at the Killer.
