Change Log

Patch 2.5.0

  • Buff: now applies its effect to all Generators in the environment.
  • Quality of Life: now increases the Hearing distance of Repair noises by 8 metres.
  • Quality of Life: now highlights the Aura of any regressing Generator for the entire duration it is regressing (in white).
  • Quality of Life: now highlights the Aura of any regressing Generator that has been interrupted for 8/12/16 seconds (in yellow).

Patch 4.3.0

  • Nerf: a Generator regressing all the way back to 0 % will now trigger the yellow Aura, as if a Survivor had interrupted the Regression.
    • This is due to the fact that a Generator regressing to 0 % technically interrupts the Regression process.
    • This change is an unfortunate side-effect of the standardisation to both Generator Terminology and to the underlying mechanics of effects that affect Generators.


Trivia

  • The default Hearing distance of Generator Repair noises is 20 metres.
