Change Log

Patch 2.0.0

  • Quality of Life: no longer loses partial progression when consuming a Token.

Patch 3.7.0

  • Buff: increases the Token-based Great Skill Check's Progression bonus by 1 %.


Trivia

  • Stake Out does not consume a Token if you succeed a regular Great Skill Check.
  • The Lullabies of The Nightmare and The Huntress do not give any progression towards Tokens.
    • The same is true for a fake Terror Radius induced by the "Discipline" IconAddon disciplineCartersNotes.png Add-ons, which gives Stake Out the added functionality of knowing whether you are inside The Doctor's actual Terror Radius or not.
  • Stake Out can be used in a similar fashion to Premonition IconPerks premonition.png or Spine Chill IconPerks spineChill.png, alerting you to being in the Killer's Terror Radius as long as the Perk has less than 4 Tokens.
  • Stake Out does not gain any Tokens when in the Dying State IconHelp dying.png or when hooked.
  • It is not advised to use Stake Out together with Autodidact IconPerks autodidact.png as Autodidact disables Great Healing IconStatusEffects healing.png Skill Checks, cancelling out the benefits of Stake Out.
  • Stake Out does not gain any Tokens whenever the Killer is affected by the Undetectable IconStatusEffects undetectable.png Status Effect.
