Each time a Survivor other than yourself is killed or sacrificed, Sole Survivor gains 1 Token, up to a maximum of 3 Tokens:

  • Each Token grants a stack-able radius of 20/22/24 metres within which the Killer is unable to read your AuraIconHelp auras.png, up to a maximum of 60/66/72 metres.

Increases the odds of becoming the Killer's initial Obsession by +100 %.
The Killer can only be obsessed with one Survivor at a time.

Change Log

  • Sole Survivor had multiple changes to its percentages that were undocumented in the Patch Notes.

Patch 2.1.0

  • Mechanics Change: instead of reducing the range of the Killer's Aura-reading abilities, Sole Survivor will now disable the Killer's Aura reading within a certain range around the Survivor that increases with the death or sacrifice of each Survivor for a maximum of 48/54/60 metres.

Patch 2.3.0

  • Buff: increased the ranges by 4 metres across all Tiers, re-instating Sole Survivor's former synergy with pre-changed Object of Obsession IconPerks objectOfObsession.png.

Patch 3.7.0

  • Quality of Life: Sole Survivor immediately lights up as soon as it gains one Token.


Tactics

For more detailed information about Perks IconHelp perks.png and Add-ons IconHelp addons.png affecting Aura reading, refer to Auras IconHelp auras.png.
  • It was possible to be used with Object of Obsession IconPerks objectOfObsession.png to read the Killer's Aura with the increasing potential of them not seeing yours if both Perks are at Tier III and enough Tokens are collected.
  • Can be an effective counter to short range Aura-reading abilities some Add-ons and Perks grant Killers.


Trivia

SoleSurvivor Console.gif
  • Prior to CHAPTER II: The HALLOWEEN® Chapter becoming available on all platforms, those that did not yet have its contents yet would still have the Characters' Perks available as regular general Perks, including Sole Survivor, whose icons featured a generic Survivor head instead of Laurie Strode.
    This also applied to Save the Best for Last IconPerks saveTheBestForLast.png.
  • The Perk was originally named "Last Survivor" according to the Halloween Chapter's Spotlight.
