Trivia

  • Some status effects are built in to certain killers powers, such as Madness for The Doctor, Exposed for The Shape and The Ghost Face, Infection and Broken for The Plague, and Deep Wounds for The Legion.
  • While the perk Knock Out doesn't afflict survivors with Blindness, it does still prevent them from seeing the auras of dying survivors when beyond a certain range.
