Difficulty rating: Easy
(based on only using his Unique Perks)
Popular and arrogant, yet compassionate, Steve Harrington is an unlikely mentor and leader. He often acts as a surrogate big brother to a younger boy named Dustin. He even helped him find his slimy inter-dimensional pet Demogorgon, D'Artagnan. His reputation as a protector grew and he soon became a sort of "babysitter" for a group of kids in Hawkins with a knack for messing around with strange and dangerous things. His courage is unmatched so that he was even able to fend off a Demogorgon when it threatened his friends. One evening he received a call for assistance from his friend Nancy Wheeler. He drove all the way to the Hawkins National Laboratory to see if she was okay. He searched the area but only found her notebook. Before he realised what was happening the ground opened up and a swirl of black mist filled his eyes. When he awakened he was in a strange place that seemed familiar but unfamiliar at the same time.
These are Perks which start off only appearing in Steve's Bloodweb . After achieving Level 30, Teachable versions of these Perks can be found:
- Babysitter - Level 30
- Camaraderie - Level 35
- Second Wind - Level 40
Once obtained, other Survivors will be able to find Steve Perks in their respective Bloodwebs from that point onwards.
While you have a reputation for being self-centred, you risk it all to help those in need.
Both you and the Killer see each other's Aura for 4 seconds.
"I promised to keep you shitheads safe, and that's exactly what I plan on doing." — Steve Harrington
Life has taught you the importance of friendship which has given you strength.
While you are on the Hook in the Struggle Phase, Camaraderie activates.
If another Survivor is within 16 metres of your Hook while Camaraderie is activated, the Struggle Phase timer is paused for 26/30/34 seconds.
"So, remember once you get in there... pretend like you don't care. There you go, you're learning my friend. You're learning." — Steve Harrington
You have learnt to avoid awkward situations with parents. Part of you still thinks your best option is to run away and hope things will take care of themselves.
When you have healed other Survivors for the equivalent of one Health State , Second Wind activates.
While Second Wind is activated, the next time you are unhooked or unhook yourself, you are affected by the Broken Status Effect.
Second Wind deactivates once you are completely healed or if you are put into the Dying State before Second Wind successfully triggers.
You will lose the Broken Status Effect once Second Wind deactivates.
Second Wind does not activate if you are already afflicted by the Broken Status Effect.
"Yeah, that's a no." — Steve Harrington
