Change Log[]

Patch 7.1.0[]

  • Buff: increased the Duration from 60/70/80 seconds to 100/110/120 seconds.
  • Nerf: increased the Generator Repair Requirement from 33% to 50%.

Patch 7.2.0[]

  • QoL: when the Perk is active, its Trap can now be placed while standing near a Generator that has partial Progression and no longer requires repairing it for a few seconds.

Trivia[]

  • Wiretap requires its user to input a total of 45 Charges into Generator Repairs, either on the same Generator or accumulatively across different Generators.
    • This equals 50 % of a complete Generator.
    • Wiretap only accounts for the Charges input by its user and ignores Charges input by other Players.
      • This behaviour results in Wiretap's Activation time varying, depending on how many other Survivors are also repairing the same Generator and/or which outside effects are affecting the Repair speed.
  • Wiretap's ability to read the Killer's Aura and reveal it to Survivors is not increased by using Open-HandedIconPerks open-HandedIconPerks open-HandedIconPerks open-Handed, as the Aura-reading emanates from the Generator, not the Survivor using the Perk.
  • Wiretap is unaffected by Perks blocking the Generator it is applied to (i.e. Repressed AllianceIconPerks repressedAllianceIconPerks repressedAllianceIconPerks repressedAlliance) and will continue to work if its activation conditions have been met.
