Change Log

Patch 5.1.0

  • Nerf: changed Stridor to apply its effect as a multiplier, rather than them being additive.
    • This meant that Stridor could no longer counter effects that reduced a Survivor's Grunts of Pain to 0 % (e.g. Iron WillIconPerks ironWillIconPerks ironWillIconPerks ironWill).

Patch 8.1.1

These changes were announced in the post-PTB Developer Update.
They are subject to change or may be relegated to release with the second Hotfix, rather than the first.
  • Buff: adjusted the values to close the gaps between Tiers to make lower tiered versions of Stridor more useful.
    • The exact values remain TBD.
  • Reversal: reverted the previous nerf from three years earlier, making Stridor add its effect instead of multiplying it with others.
    • This means that if another Perk reduces the volume to 0 %, Stridor can raise it to reduced levels of up to 50 % again.
