Visual Update for Haddonfield Map.

General

  • Difficulty ratings for Survivors have been removed
  • Difficulty ratings for Killers are now Easy, Moderate, Hard, or Very Hard
  • Easy: These Killers are the easiest for a first-time player
  • Moderate: Require the player to be comfortable with the basics of the role, though the Killers share common mechanics with those from the Easy category
  • Hard: Use mechanics that are specific to the Killer and require more practice to be effective
  • Very Hard: Require a high amount of practice and understanding, inexperienced players would likely find little success when using them
  • Switch players should update to 14.1.0-1.0 firmware or newer to fix an issue with Auric Cell Purchases failing.

Dev Note: Since all Survivors have the same mechanics, they are no longer separated into different difficulty tiers. Killer difficulty is based on overall mechanical and strategic complexity, specifically for newer players.

Hemorrhage Rework

  • New Effect: Survivors affected by the Hemorrhage Status Effect have their healing progression regress at a steady rate when not being healed
  • Healing regresses at a rate of 7% per second (this means a 99% full heal would take 14 seconds to completely empty)
  • Sloppy Butcher and The Nightmare’s “Z” Block Add-on have been modified to take the new effect into account (changes listed below)

Dev Note: Hemorrhage has had a reputation of being a “useless” status effect, so we reworked it to have a more meaningful impact on the core mechanic of survivor healing.

Perks

  • Boil Over
  • Increases struggling effects by 60/70/80% (was 50/75/100%)

Dev Note: Boil Over’s wiggle impact was causing some players to have significant issues navigating certain maps, beyond the intended impact of the perk. We are planning to look at wiggle impact more generally in a future patch, but for now we are toning down the impact from Boil Over to prevent particularly egregious cases.

  • Boon: Circle of Healing
  • Increases healing speed bonus by 40/45/50% (was 65/70/75%)

Dev Note: As it was foretold, so it has been delivered.

  • Sloppy Butcher
  • Modified to account for the Hemorrhage Rework
  • Increases the rate at which healing progression is lost by 15/20/25%

Dev Note: On the PTB, all mentions of Sloppy Butcher increasing bleed frequency were removed, but the mechanic remained! The strings have been updated to clarify that increase bleed frequency is still present on Sloppy Butcher, in addition to the new effect.

The Nightmare 

  • Add-on – “Z” Block
  • Modified to account for the Hemorrhage Rework
  • Survivors interacting with a Dream Trap suffer from the Hemorrhage Status Effect for 90 seconds (was 60 seconds)

The Legion

  • The Legion now has unique Terror Radius and Chase music, which can be modified by the Mix Tape add-ons
  • New: Each successful hit with Feral Slash now increases The Legion’s movement speed by +0.2m/s for the remainder of Feral Frenzy
  • New: After 4 successful hits with Feral Slash, the next Feral Slash will put the survivor into the dying state and end Feral Frenzy
  • Removed the loss of power gauge on successful basic attacks
  • When Feral Frenzy ends, the power gauge now starts charging immediately (Previously waited for the fatigue sequence to end)
  • Fatigue after Feral Frenzy lasts for 3 seconds (was 4 seconds)
  • Add-on – Mischief List
  • Increases the Duration of Feral Frenzy by 2 seconds (was 1 second)
  • Add-on – Scratched Ruler
  • Decreases Feral Frenzy recharge time by 5 seconds (was 2 seconds)
  • Add-on – Suzie’s Mix Tape
  • Increases Killer Instinct detection range by 20 meters (was 16 meters)

  • Survivors who self-mend a Deep Wound from Feral Frenzy are inflicted with Mangled
  • Reworked Add-on – Etched Ruler

  • Increases Speed Boost per hit during Feral Frenzy to 0.3m/s
  • Reworked Add-on – Never-sleep Pills
  • The Legion’s base move speed during Feral Frenzy is 4.6/ms
  • Increases the duration of Feral Frenzy by 10 seconds
  • Gain 100 to 500 bonus Bloodpoints for each successive hit on a Survivor during Feral Frenzy
  • Reworked Add-on – Joey’s Mix Tape
  • Survivors who self-mend a Deep Wound from Feral Frenzy are inflicted with Hemorrhage until fully healed
  • Reworked Add-on – Stolen Sketchbook
  • During Feral Frenzy from the second chained hit onward, hit Survivors drop their item

  • Reworked Add-on – Fuming Mix Tape
  • While using Feral Frenzy: The repair progress of generators can be determined by the intensity of their auras, generators not being worked on regress
  • Note: Regression effect does stack with Hex: Ruin or other regression effects
  • New Add-on – Stylish Sunglasses
  • Shows the auras of Survivors who are mending within a 24 meter radius

  • Earn tokens for hitting Survivors during Feral Frenzy
  • Second chained hit: 2 token
  • Third chained hit: 3 tokens
  • Fourth chained hit: 4 tokens
  • Fifth chained hit: 5 tokens
  • Once the gates are powered, if 15 or more tokens have been collected, gain a 4% movement speed boost when not using Feral Frenzy
  • Removed Add-ons: Nasty Blade, Cold Dirt

Dev Note: This update for Legion leans into their signature – Running really fast with a knife! The stacking movement speed from Feral Strike gives a better reward from each hit, and they now have a way to down survivors at the end of a great chain. Add-ons have also seen a major overhaul to provide more variety of playstyles.

The Ghost Face 

  • The Ghost Face can no longer be revealed by Marked Survivors
  • Marked now lasts for 60 seconds (was 45 seconds)
  • The Ghost Face now has unique Terror Radius and Chase music
  • Reviewed the technical implementation of the stalk and reveal mechanics
  • Fixed an issue that could lead some player’s reveal to be ignored completely when multiple survivors are revealing at the same time
  • Reveal progress will now regress over a short time when a survivor loses sight of Ghost Face and resume when revealing starts again (Previously, losing sight of Ghost Face for a single frame would cause all reveal progress to be lost)
  • Added in differentiation of the sighting zone (the zone in your screen where the target must be to be revealed or stalked) for killers and survivors to better account for the differences between 1st and 3rd person cameras
  • Made it possible to reveal Ghost Face / stalk Survivors when they are not in the center of the screen but still take up a large amount of the screen (eg when they are very close to you)
  • Fixed some issues which caused the stalk / reveal sighting zone to scale incorrectly on non-16:9 resolutions
  • Add-on – Cheap Cologne

  • Add-on – Headline Cutouts
  • Increases movement speed while stalking by 40% (was 10%)
  • Add-on – Walleye’s Matchbook

  • The auras of all Survivors are revealed for 7 seconds when a Marked Survivor is put into the dying state (was 4 seconds)
  • Now applies to all survivors (was limited to Survivors inside the Terror Radius)
  • Reworked Add-on – “Philly”
  • Decreases time required to Mark a Survivor by 20%
  • Reworked Add-on – Cinch Straps
  • Night Shroud remains active after a failed basic attack

  • Reworked Add-on – Victim’s Detailed Routine
  • After being Marked, Survivors are inflicted with Exhausted for 5 seconds
  • Reworked Add-on – “Ghost Face caught on Tape”
  • Instantly recharges Night Shroud after a successful basic attack puts a Survivor into the dying state

Dev Note: Ghost Face was having a tough time generally, and his add-ons were particularly uninteresting overall. This change boosts the effectiveness of the Marked effect, and also overhauls his Add-on loadout for more interesting and powerful combinations. The reveal and stalking mechanics have also been tuned to be more predictable and intuitive.

Changes from PTB 

  • The Nightmare’s “Z” Block Add-on has had the bleed frequency modifier returned
  • Hemorrhage no longer reduces healing progress when downed
  • The Shape’s stalk and The Ghost Face’s stalk / reveal mechanics have had their values tuned to account for the technical rework to stalking / revealing
  • The Legion 
  • Removed the loss of power gauge on successful basic attacks
  • The following Add-ons have been adjusted from the PTB: Frank’s Mixtape, Julie’s Mixtape, Stolen Sketchbook, Stab Wounds Study, BFFs, and Etched Ruler
