Trivia

  • Lullabies do not give any progression towards Tokens.
    • Neither does a fake Terror Radius induced by Madness IconStatusEffects madness.png when facing The Doctor IconHelpLoading doctor.png, which gives Stake Out the added functionality of knowing whether you are inside The his 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 tokens if the Survivor is affected by the Oblivious IconStatusEffects oblivious.png Status Effect.
  • Stake Out works with Jigsaw Box IconHelp jigsawBoxes.png and Lament Configuration FulliconItems lamentConfiguration.png Skill Checks.
  • Stake Out's Skill Checks do activate Gearhead IconPerks gearhead.png.
