6.4.0 Patch Notes

Features

  • New Killer - The Knight
    • New Perk - Nowhere to Hide
      • Whenever you damage a generator, reveal the aura of all survivors standing within 24 meters of your position for 3/4/5 seconds.
    • New Perk - Hex: Face the Darkness
      • Injuring a Survivor by any means lights a Dull Totem, activating the Hex. While the Hex is active, all other Survivors outside of your Terror Radius will scream every 35/30/25 seconds, revealing their positions and auras for 2 seconds. When the Survivor enters the dying state or becomes healthy, the Hex totem becomes dull again and this perk deactivates. If the Hex totem is cleansed, this perk is permanently disabled.
    • New Perk - Hubris
      • Whenever you are stunned by a Survivor, that Survivor suffers from the Exposed status effect for 10/15/20 seconds. Hubris has a cooldown of 20 seconds.
  • New Survivor - Vittorio Toscano
    • New Perk - Potential Energy
      • After working on a generator for 12/10/8 uninterrupted seconds, press the Active Ability Button 2 to activate this perk. When this perk is active, repairing the generator will charge this perk instead of making the generator progress. For each 1.5% of generator repair, the perk will gain one token, up to 20 tokens. While this perk has at least one token and you are working on a generator, you can press the Active Ability Button 2 to consume all the tokens and instantly make the generator progress by 1% for each token. This perk then deactivates. If you lose a health state while this perk has at least 1 tokens, the perk will lose all tokens and deactivate. Missing a skill check will also result in some charges lost.
    • New Perk - Fogwise
      • Hitting a great Skill Check while repairing a generator reveals the aura of the Killer to you for 4/5/6 seconds.

Damaging the generator destroys the Wiretap.

      • When within a 6 meter radius around a hooked survivor, use the Active Ability Button 2 to pause their struggle progression for 20/25/30 seconds. If they are on the struggle phase, it also pauses the Struggle Skill Checks. Reassurance can only be triggered once per survivor per hook instance.

Progression 

  • The Progression and Prestige systems have been reworked 
  • IMPORTANT: No existing perks, items, or cosmetics will be lost if they are already unlocked on a character, even if having them would contradict the rules of the new system
  • Global Bloodpoint soft-cap has been raised to 2,000,000 (was 1,000,000) 
  • Bloodpoint Categories maximum raised to 10,000 (was 8,000) 
  • Prestiging no longer removes any items, add-ons, offerings, perks, or perk slots 
  • Teachable Perks have been removed from the Bloodweb 
  • Level 51 in the Bloodweb requires the character to Prestige, costing 20,000 Bloodpoints 
  • Characters can now each be prestiged up to 100 times 
  • Prestiging a character has the following rewards: 
  • Prestige 1: The character's perks are immediately unlocked for use on all other Killers / Survivors at Tier 1 
  • Prestige 2: The character's perks are immediately unlocked for use on all other Killers / Survivors at Tier 2 
  • Prestige 3: The character's perks are immediately unlocked for use on all other Killers / Survivors at Tier 3 
  • Prestige 4-6: Bloodied cosmetic items (when available for the specific character) 
  • Prestige 7-9: Perk Charms for the character's perks 
  • Existing players will have their characters granted prestige levels in the new system based on the following: 
  • +2 additional levels per existing Prestige level 
  • Example: A Prestige 1 character will receive +2 levels, resulting in being Prestige 3 in the new system 
  • If the character has 70 or more Perks unlocked (Counting each tier of a perk separately): 
    • +1 level for 70-119 Perks 
    • +2 levels for 120-169 Perks 
    • +3 levels for 170-219 Perks 
    • +4 levels for 220-269 Perks 
    • +5 levels for 270-319 Perks 
    • +6 levels for 320+ Perks 
  • Prestige 9 is the highest level a character can be when transferring to the new system, even if the above rules say they should be higher 
  • Existing unlocked Teachable Perks will immediately grant access to Tier 1 of that Perk on all characters if no other mechanic has already granted access to the Perk 
  • Added unique Prestige Crest artwork for each prestige level 
  • Characters who are already at Prestige 3 on the old system will unlock a Bloody Prestige Portrait on the character selection screen 
    • Can be toggled on / off in the Options menu 

Shrine of Secrets 

  • Teachable Perks have been removed from the Shrine of Secrets 
  • Purchasing a Perk on the Shrine of Secrets now immediately unlocks that Perk on all Killers / Survivors at the displayed Tier level 
    • Tier 1 - 2,000 Iridescent Shards 
    • Tier 2 - 4,000 Iridescent Shards 
    • Tier 3 - 6,000 Iridescent Shards 
  • You must purchase Tier 1 before you can purchase Tier 2, and Tier 2 before Tier 3, unless you have already unlocked the Perk via the Prestige System 
  • Having the perk already available via the Prestige System discounts the price:  
    • Tier 1 via Prestige - 2,000 Iridescent Shards for Tier 2, 4,000 Iridescent Shards for Tier 3 
    • Tier 2 via Prestige - 2,000 Iridescent Shards for Tier 3 
  • The same Perk may be purchased multiple times on a single rotation of Shrine of Secrets 
  • Purchasing a Perk that you already have at Tier 3 will convert the Iridescent Shards to 100,000 Bloodpoints 
    • This can only be done once Shrine of Secrets rotation per Perk (maximum of 4 times on a single rotation, assuming you have all 4 Perks already at Tier 3) 

Matchmaking Incentives 

  • Matchmaking Incentives have been added to the game 
  • Not available to players who have Cross-Play disabled 
  • When the Survivor:Killer ratio in the active Matchmaking queue drifts too far from optimal (4:1), players will receive BP bonuses to enter the queue as the needed role 
    • Note: Players can also expect queues with a large Incentive bonus to have faster queue times! 
  • Matchmaking Incentives will appear on the Main menu and in the Lobby next to the Ready button. 

UI 

  • Made UI layout changes to accommodate the new Prestige Crest on multiple screens. 
  • Character Info button has been moved to the side tabs in the Lobby UI. 
  • Replaced Character Swap buttons/prompts with a Previous/Next button in the Lobby UI footer. 

Optimization 

  • Optimized the Doctor's performance. 
    • Dev Note: The Doctor currently has one of the largest impacts on performance for Killers. These performance optimizations should help improve that on all platforms. 

 Changes from PTB 

  • Reduced Prestige node cost from 50,000 to 20,000 
  • Increased Bloodpoint Category caps from 8,000 to 10,000 
  • Increased Global Bloodpoint soft-cap from 1,000,000 to 2,000,000 
  • Rules for converting Prestige levels from the old system to the new system have been made more rewarding, but with a maximum starting point of Prestige 9 
  • Reworked the Prestige Portrait reward for players who had already reached Prestige 3 on a character 
  • Reworked the Prestige Perk Charm visuals 
  • Reworked the Prestige Crest visuals 
    • Dev Note: We received a lot of feedback on the PTB about the grind not being reduced enough when only focusing on a few characters, especially in relation to the cost of the Prestige node on the bloodweb. In response, we have reduced the BP cost of the Prestige node as well as raising various BP caps to allow for more BP to be earned, stocked up, and spent. We've additionally adjusted the transition rules for the Prestige system in such a way that players who reached Prestige 3 in the old system will immediately be Prestige 9 and thus unlock all associated perks, cosmetics, and charms immediately for the character. 
  • Endurance no longer stops a Survivor from going down if they have Deep Wound 
  • Dead Hard's Endurance duration reduced from 1 second to 0.5 seconds 
  • Off The Record is now disabled when the Exit Gates are powered 
  • Overcharge's regression has been reduced from 100%-400% to 75%-200% 
  • Botany Knowledge now has a Medkit efficiency penalty of -20% 
  • Spine Chill now has additional Terror Radius visual feedback 
  • Inner Focus no longer has a distance restriction on viewing scratch marks 
    • Dev Note: On the PTB we saw many instances where Survivors were able to queue up several instances of Endurance one after the other, and being able to tank far too many additional hits. Changing Endurance to not trigger when a player has Deep Wounds will prevent this from being as effective, as Survivors will now need to mend the Deep Wound in order to benefit from Endurance a second time. Off The Record was also proving to be too strong during the end game, since there are no required Conspicuous Actions at that point, and will now disable once the gates have been powered.

      • The ability to save your favorite Loadout builds and Customizations has been added to the Loadout and Customizations menus respectively.
    • The Ghost Face
      • Reworked Add-on - Driver's License
        • When Marking a Survivor repairing a generator, the generator explodes and loses 20% progress. The affected generator becomes blocked for 15 seconds. When Marking multiple Survivors at the same time, the loss of progress only applies once.
    • The Pig
      • Added an extra Jigsaw Box to all matches
      • Survivors are guaranteed to find the key for their Reverse Beartrap at a maximum of 4 boxes searched (It can still be found sooner, but you will never need to search more than 4 boxes)
      • The box system has been adjusted to be more consistent overall and have a slightly higher average number of searches needed, from 2.5 to 3 (Yes, this is a buff)

    Dev Note: Some Pig players have been camping out in front of the final Jigsaw Box, blocking a survivor from being able to get rid of their Reverse Beartrap. With these changes, this strategy will no longer work! We also tweaked the way box searches are determined to prevent extreme cases of very few searches / too many searches, as well as a small buff to the average number of searches required to escape the Reverse Beartrap. Overall, this should make the boxes more consistent and slightly more powerful for The Pig.

    • Miscellaneous
      • Changed the text for Entity Displeased on the tally screen. It now reads "The Entity Hungers..."
      • Added a warning message in the Custom Games Lobby to indicate that matches do not count toward Achievements.
      • Updated desktop icon.

5.7.0 Patch Notes

Features 

UI Update - Added an indicator to the Searching for Friends popup when loading data. 

Content 

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)

  • Reworked Add-on - Mural Sketch 
  • 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 - 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 
  • New Add-on - BFFs 
  • 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)

  • Add-on - Cheap Cologne

  • Increases crouched movement speed by 10% (was 5.6%)

  • 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"

  • Reworked Add-on - Cinch Straps 
  • Night Shroud remains active after a failed basic attack

  • 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

5.5.0 Patch Notes

Important

Due to an increase in file compression, players who download this PTB will have to download almost the entire game, and then re-download the entire game when switching back to the regular version. Thankfully, this means the PTB build is ~20GB smaller than usual.

This change is the first step in reducing future patch times, and we appreciate your understanding and patience as we progressively continue to improve patch times.

Progress & save data information has been copied from the Live game to our PTB servers on December 22nd. Please note that players will be able to progress for the duration of the PTB, but none of that progress will make it back to the Live version of the game.

Features

  • Fixed some specific vulnerabilities that could be abused by cheaters
  • Hit feedback has been adjusted to reduce the frequency of visual feedback in the case of a rejected hit (especially for instances of Dead Hard)

Dev Note: This won't eliminate all instances of VFX / SFX feedback when landing a rejected hit, but it should reduce it for most cases where the players have a decent connection to the server.

  • New Feature: Interaction Behavior - Hold / Toggle
    • When set to Toggle, you no longer need to hold the interaction button for interaction (Fixing generators, healing, kicking generators, etc.)
    • To end the interaction, you will need to press the interaction button a second time (or use the "Run to Cancel" option detailed below!)
    • Located in the Options menu under "Controls"
    • Available for both Survivor and Killer as separate settings
  • New Feature: Run to Cancel - On / Off
    • When enabled, survivor players can cancel an interaction by giving a run input (i.e. the run modifier and a direction to move)
    • Located in the Options menu under "Controls"
    • Only available for Survivors

Dev Note: Holding buttons for extended interactions isn't always the most comfortable, so this feature aims to address that. When combined with the Run to Cancel, you can quickly disengage from fixing a generator once you spot The Shape stalking you.

Beta Features

  • A new tab is available in the Options menu: Beta!
    • New features will appear here so that we can gain feedback from all players on all platforms
    • Turning a feature ON will grant a Bloodpoint bonus for the first 10 matches that you play with it
  • First Beta Feature: New Wiggle Interaction
    • Survivor only
    • Replaces the wiggle interaction with a new dual skill check style input
    • Default binding for Keyboard: Space
    • Default binding for Controller: LB/RB or L1/R1
      • When playing on a controller, either button will work for either side of the skill check
    • Secondary input can be rebound in the Key Bindings menu
    • Bloodpoint Bonus for first 10 matches: 20,000

Dev Note: We're excited to gather your feedback on the new Wiggle system, and we've put it in a Beta tab to allow console players to participate in the fun!

The Nurse

Several issues affected the Nurse's power that required a large part of the code supporting her, especially the networking, to be re-done, which is what we did in this release. This allowed us to fix the following issues.

  • Fixed an issue that rarely caused the Nurse not to be able to trigger a blink.

Optimization

5.3.2 Patch Notes

Features

Boon Totems

  • Disabled an animation restriction that caused many boon totems to be unsnuffable by the killer due to the placement of the totems

Dev Note: We intend to re-enable this in a future patch, once we have had time to locate and reposition all offending totems so that they play nice. This will result in some totems being snuffable through collision, but we are erring on the side of caution to ensure that all totems can be snuffed by the killer until then. Enjoy it while it lasts, Killer Mains!

Bug Fixes

  • Fixed an issue that caused the archive widget to appear without any challenge selected when there would be a challenge selected in the tome page.
  • Fixed an issue that caused the purchased survivor to be unlocked and no Auric Cells to be spent after getting a "Purchase Failed" error in the store.

  • Fixed an issue that caused the Adrenaline perk not to trigger if the Survivor was not eligible to receive the effect when the exit gates are powered.
  • Fixed an issue that caused the grass and foliage to become partially black as players walk through.

5.3.1 Patch Notes

Content

  • Perk – Clairvoyance: Added the Hatch to the auras revealed. The Hatch aura is only visible after The Hatch has spawned.
  • Perk - Dead Hard: Added hit validation
  • The Midnight Grove Event - Selecting a Halloween challenge involving the event pumpkins will cause pumpkins to react to your presence.

Dev note: Previously, Dead Hard's invulnerability was calculated on the Killer's client, which led to survivors needing to anticipate the killer's swing to an unreasonable degree in order for it to work. With hit validation, the server will decide if the hit would have landed and reject it if Dead Hard was active without relying on the Killer's client.

5.3.0 Patch Notes

Features

  • System to support event content within The Archives

Content

  • Added a new Survivor: Mikaela Reid.
  • Updated the Character Select portraits for several Survivors. (David, Jake, Nea, Kate, Quentin, and Feng)
  • "The Midnight Grove" Halloween limited-time event (starts Oct. 21st 11AM ET)
  • Tome IX of The Archives (starts Oct. 20th 11AM ET)

General

  • The achievement “Where Did They Go!?” has been changed to “The Key to Escaping”

Developer notes: The hatch change is effectively the much asked for Key nerf in disguise, preventing survivors from escaping a trial prematurely. It is also intended to reduce situations where survivors would camp the hatch, waiting for their teammates to die so they could escape.

The Trapper

  • Base trap carrying capacity and starting traps increased to 2 (was 1)

  • Add-on – Fastening Tools: Trap escape modifier removed. Added effect: 25% increase to rescue and escape time. Rarity decreased to Rare (was Very Rare)
  • Reworked Add-on – Oily Coil: When resetting a Bear Trap, reveal the aura of the most recent Survivor to disarm it for 5 seconds
  • Reworked Add-on – Trapper Sack: Bear Traps are carried at the beginning of the trial instead of spawning on the map. Bear Traps cannot be picked up
  • New Add-on – Bear Oil: Setting a Bear Trap is silent
  • New Add-on – Makeshift Wrap: The Trapper cannot be caught by his Bear Traps. The Bear Trap will be disarmed if The Trapper steps on it
  • New Add-on – Coffee Grinds: Gain a 5% Haste status effect for 5 seconds after setting a Bear Trap
  • New Add-on – Lengthened Jaws: Bear Traps inflict Deep Wound on Survivors
  • New Add-on – Tension Spring: The Bear Trap resets 2 seconds after a Survivor escapes from it
  • The following add-ons have been removed: Strong Coil Spring, Trap Setters, Logwood Dye, Setting Tools, Stitched Bag
  • New Bear Trap SFX when using Padded Jaws add-on

Developer notes: The Trapper is DbD’s oldest killer, and he needed some love to bring him up to our modern standard of play. Many of these changes are focused around bringing him into line with how the rest of our Killers behave. Traps have been balanced to provide more consistent game experiences, and his add-ons have been overhauled to give a greater variety of options.

The Wraith

  • Uncloaking speed boost duration reduced to 1 seconds (was 1.25 seconds)
  • Add-on – All Seeing: Blood: Aura reveal range decreased to 8 meters (was 12 meters)

Developer notes: Recent buffs to The Wraith have made him a wee bit over powered, so these changes are intended to adjust two of the most obviously overpowered elements. We’ll continue monitoring how he performs, and potentially have more changes for him in the future.

The Hillbilly

  • Add-on – Death Engravings: Added effect: Decreases heat generated while charging by 14%
  • Add-on – Doom Engravings: Added effect: Decreases heat generated while charging by 14%
  • Add-on – Mother’s Helpers: Charge speed bonus after being stunned increased to 18% (was 12%)
  • Add-on – Tuned Carburetor: Charge speed bonus increased to 25% (was 20%)
  • Reworked Add-on – Black Grease: Increases Chainsaw charge speed by 18% for 30 seconds after being blinded
  • Reworked Add-on – Pighouse Gloves: While overheated, increases action speed by 20% when breaking pallets or walls, or damaging generators. While overheated, decreases duration of pallet stuns by 50%

Developer notes: The engraving add-ons are very popular with players, but the increased charge time means he generates significantly more heat for a full charge with these add-ons than without. A heat reduction modifier has been added to keep the amount of heat produced for one full charge constant, and we’ve also improved some underperforming add-ons to make them more enticing.

The Nurse

  • Add-on – Torn Bookmark: Removed line of sight restriction. Added effect: Increases Blink recharge time by 50%

Developer notes: The line of sight restriction on Torn Book wasn’t terribly fun to play with, so we’ve replaced that a new downside which we feel is more in line with what players would expect.

The Shape

  • Add-on – Memorial Flower: Rarity decreased to Common (was Uncommon)
  • Add-on – Vanity Mirror: Removed speed penalty
  • Add-on – Judith’s Tombstone: Speed penalty now only applies to Evil Within III

Developer notes: The rarity change to Memorial Flower brings The Shape in line with all our other killers in terms of add-on rarity distribution. Additionally, we have removed the movement speed penalties that prevented two add-ons from realistically enabling their intended play styles. Our condolences to players who used these add-ons for comedic purposes.

The Hag

  • Add-on – Waterlogged Shoe: Increased speed bonus to 4.5% (was 2%)

Developer notes: Waterlogged Show was The Hag’s worst performing add-on, so we’ve given it a buff to help make it more viable. It will now make The Hag move at regular killer speed, 4.6m/s.

The Pig

  • Add-on – Bag of Gears: Increased Reverse Bear Trap setting speed bonus to 50% (was 20%)
  • Add-on – Crate of Gears: Decreased Jigsaw Box search penalty to 33% (was 43%)
  • Add-on – Tampered Timer: Decreased Reverse Bear Trap death timer modification to 20 seconds (was 30 seconds)
  • Add-on – Rule Set N.2: Decreased rarity to Rare (was Ultra Rare)
  • Add-on – Amanda’s Letter: Jigsaw Box reduction removed. Aura reveal range increased to 16 meters (was 12 meters)
  • Reworked Add-on – John’s Medical File: Increases crouched move speed by 6%
  • Reworked Add-on – Razor Wires: Failing a Jigsaw Box skill check while uninjured will injure the survivor
  • Reworked Add-on – Workshop Grease: Increases Ambush attack charge speed by 50%. Decreases Ambush attack miss cooldown by 25%. Increased rarity to Uncommon (was Common)
  • Reworked Add-on – Last Will: Increases Ambush attack movement speed by 6%. Increases time to charge Ambush attack by 66%
  • Reworked Add-on – Interlocking Razor: Failing a Jigsaw Box skill check while injured will inflict Deep Wound on the Survivor
  • Reworked Add-on – Jigsaw’s Annotated Plan: Increases available Reverse Bear Traps by 1. Increases Reverse Bear Trap death timer by 10 seconds. Whenever a generator is completed, 10 seconds is removed from the death timer of all active Reverse Bear Traps
  • Reworked Add-on – Jigsaw’s Sketch: Increases available Reverse Bear Traps by 1. When a Survivor with a Reverse Bear Trap is working on a generator, that generator’s aura is revealed to you
  • Reworked Add-on – Video Tape: Survivors begin the trial with Reverse Bear Traps installed. Rarity increased to Ultra Rare (was Uncommon)

Developer notes: We are happy to announce The Pig is getting an add-on balance pass! We have replaced a number of underperforming or unpopular add-ons with new effects and increased the values on others to make them more effective. On the other end, Tampered Timer and Crate of Gears could sometimes be too strong (especially when combined) so their values have been reduced. The end result should be an add-on set that is overall stronger, more diverse, and more fun to play.

The Spirit

  • While phase walking Survivors within 24 meters of The Spirit (not the husk) hear a directional audio cue that gains volume with proximity
  • Add-on – Juniper Bonsai: Added effect: Increases Passive Phasing duration by 50%
  • Reworked Add-on – Dried Cherry Blossom: Survivors trigger Killer Instinct when they come within 4 meters of The Spirit while she is phasing. Scratch marks are no longer visible while using Yamaoka’s Haunting
  • Reworked Add-on – Wakizashi Saya: During Yamaoka’s Haunting, use the Active Ability button to return to the husk and end the haunting
  • New Add-on – Mother’s Glasses: Survivors trigger Killer Instinct when they come within 2 meters of the husk. Scratch marks are no longer visible while using Yamaoka’s Haunting
  • New Add-on – Uchiwa: Instantly recharges Yamoka’s Haunting when stunned by a pallet
  • New Add-on – Senko Hanabi: When Yamaoka’s Haunting ends, The Spirit’s husk explodes and any vaults within 4 meters are blocked for 5 seconds
  • New Add-on – Furin: The phasing sound is heard by all Survivors
  • New Add-on – Kintsugi Teacup: Instantly recharges Yamaoka’s Haunting after breaking a pallet or wall
  • The following add-ons have been removed: Bloody Hair Brooch, Dirty Uwabaki, Katsumori Talisman, Prayer Beads Bracelet, Father’s Glasses
  • New Terror Radius music

Developer notes: The Spirit’s phase walking mind-games have evolved into something of a Kobayashi Maru. By adding some audio cues, it should give sharp survivors a chance to figure out what she’s doing and react accordingly. Along with this, we’ve replaced some of her more problematic / boring add-ons with new ones that should provide more varied options for potential playstyles.

The Plague

  • If the power button is released early, Vile Purge will continue charging to the minimum threshold instead of cancelling and entering cooldown
  • Vile Purge cooldown move speed increased from 2.3m/s to 3.6m/s
  • Base object infection time increased to 40 seconds (was 35 seconds)
  • Interacting with infected objects generates 2x more sickness over time than interacting with non-infected objects
  • Time to cleanse at a fountain increased to 8 seconds (was 6 seconds)
  • Add-on – Limestone Seal: Object infection bonus increased to 20 seconds (was 5 seconds)
  • Add-on – Emetic Potion: Increased Vile Purge effectiveness bonus to 30% (was 25%)
  • Add-on – Hematite Seal: Object infection bonus increased to 30 seconds (was 10 seconds)
  • Add-on – Infected Emetic: Decreased Vile Purge effectiveness bonus to 40% (was 50%)
  • Add-on – Ashen Apple: Removed object infection duration modifier. Added effect: Increases the number of Pools of Devotion in the trial by 1
  • Add-on – Rubbing Oil: Reduced Vile Purge charge speed bonus to 50% (was 100%)
  • Add-on – Exorcism Amulet: Increased Corrupt Purge duration bonus to 10 seconds (was 6 seconds)
  • Add-on – Devotees Amulet: Increased Corrupt Purge duration bonus to 20 seconds (was 8 seconds)
  • Add-on – Black Incense: Decreased survivor aura reveal duration to 3 seconds (was 5 seconds)
  • Add-on – Iridescent Seal: Removed speed penalty while holding Corrupt Purge
  • Reworked Add-on – Prayer Tablet Fragment: Vile Purge no longer affects Survivors. Increases object infection duration by 40 seconds. Increases infection from infected objects by 100%. Increases Devious Bloodpoints by 100%
  • Reworked Add-on – Olibanum Incense: Survivors who cleanse at fountains have their auras revealed for 4 seconds
  • Reworked Add-on – Prophylactic Amulet: Decreases the number of Pools of Devotion in the trial by 2
  • Reworked Add-on – Incensed Ointment: Ingesting the corruption at a Pool of Devotion causes all Survivors within The Plague’s Terror Radius to scream and reveal their locations
  • Reworked Add-on – Vile Emetic: Increases velocity of vomit projectiles by 10%

Developer notes: These changes are intended to be a general buff and to enhance quality-of-life for The Plague. It was far too common for players to attempt a quick purge only to accidentally release the charge a fraction of a second too early and unintentionally end up in cooldown, so we’ve changed the behaviour of early releases to charge to a minimum threshold instead of going on cooldown. We have also buffed the options for focusing on infecting objects during the trial, with infected objects now increasing infection faster than non-infected ones.

The Deathslinger

  • The Deathslinger must now wait for the Enter Aim animation to complete before being able to fire (0.4 seconds)
  • The Deathslinger must now wait for the Exit Aim animation to complete before being able to attack (0.6 seconds)
  • Increased movement speed when aiming down sights to 85% (was 75%)
  • The cooldown when a survivor breaks free is now the same duration as a successful hit cooldown
  • Increased terror radius to 32 meters (was 24 meters)
  • Add-on – Gold Creek Whiskey: Removed movement speed penalty
  • Add-on – Marshal’s Badge: Removed movement speed penalty
  • Add-on – Iridescent Coin: Decreased range requirement to 12 meters (was 15 meters)
  • Add-on - Wanted Poster: Decreased movement speed while aiming to 2.5% (was 10%)
  • Add-on - Jaw Smasher: Decreased movement speed while aiming to 1% (was 5%)
  • Reworked Add-on – Hellshire Iron: When a Survivor is speared, gain Undetectable. The effect persists for 10 seconds after the Survivor is no longer speared.

Developer notes: We were unhappy with how easy it was for players to “insta-scope” survivors, especially given how little counterplay this had for survivor players. To combat this, The Deathslinger now has minimum enter / exit times when aiming down sights before being able to shoot / attack normally. We have also adjusted the stun when survivors break free to be the same as a successful hit, giving players a choice to break the reel early in exchange for losing out on the damage / deep wound. Wanted Poster and Jaw Smasher are to account for his new base movement speed while aiming: When stacked The Deathslinger moves at ~3.9m/s, which is very close to Survivor move speed of 4.0 m/s.

The Ghost Face

  • Night Shroud recovery time decreased to 24 seconds (was 30 seconds)
  • Add-on – Walleye’s Matchbook: Decreased Night Shroud recovery modifier to 2 seconds (was 4 seconds)
  • Add-on – Olson’s Address Book: Decreased Night Shroud recovery modifier to 3 seconds (was 6 seconds)
  • Add-on – Chewed Pen: Decreased Night Shroud recovery modifier to 4 seconds (was 8 seconds)

Developer notes: Player feedback about Ghost Face's add-ons was very clear: decreased recovery time was more appealing than any other option. In light of this, we have 'baked in' roughly half the effect of these add-ons to encourage a wider variety of selection.

The Blight

  • Add-on – Adrenaline Vial: Increased rush token recharge bonus to 1 second (was 0.75 seconds). Added effect: Increases Rushing speed by 10%
  • Add-on – Summoning Stone: Increased pallet blocking range to 16 meters (was 12 meters). Increased pallet blocking duration to 15 seconds (was 6 seconds)

Developer notes: The add-on Adrenaline Vial is supposed to enable an alternate "straight line dash" playstyle for players interested in novelty. While it's still unlikely to be stronger than baseline Blight play, increased movement speed and token recharge should make the alternate playstyle a bit more viable. Additionally, the values on Summoning Stone have been increased to better reflect the perk it is referencing (Hex: Blood Favor).

The Oni

  • Add-on – Scalped Topknot: Reduced Demon Dash activation reduction to 0.5 seconds (was 1 second)

Developer notes: Easy one here, Scalped Topknot was over performing when used, so it needed an adjustment to bring it in line.

The Trickster

  • Add-on – Ji-Woon's Autograph: Decreased the reduction of blades required to 1 (was 2)

Developer notes: There was an error that caused Ji-Woon's Autograph and Fizz-Spin Soda to bother reduce the blades required by 2, so we've reduced the power of the more common add-on.

Survivor Perks

The following perks have become General Perks, and their names have changed:

  • Babysitter is now Guardian
  • Camaraderie is now Kinship
  • Second Wind is now Renewal
  • Better Together is now Situational Awareness
  • Fixated is now Self-Aware
  • Inner Strength is now Inner Healing

Perk Balancing

  • Vigil: Recovery bonus increased to 20/25/30% (was 10/15/20%). Added Broken, Exposed, and Oblivious to the status effects modified by the perk
  • Guardian (formerly Babysitter): Added a 7% Haste status effect for the rescued survivor. Removed the Killer seeing your aura. Killer aura visibility for you increased to 8 seconds (was 4 seconds)
  • For the People: Reduced the duration of the Broken status effect to 80/70/60 seconds (was 110/100/90 seconds)
  • Windows of Opportunity: Increased effective range to 24/28/32 meters (was 20 meters). Removed cooldown after vaulting / dropping a Pallet
  • Repressed Alliance: Generator repair requirement reduced to 55/50/45 seconds (was 80/70/60 seconds)
  • Built to Last – Reworked: After hiding inside a Locker for 14/13/12 seconds with a depleted item in hand, 99% of its charges are refilled. Each use of Built to Last reduces the amount of charges refilled by 33%. Added stinger audio when item charges are refilled
  • Any Means Necessary: Added effect: You can see the auras of dropped pallets
  • No Mither: Grunts of pain reduction increased to 25/50/75% (was 0/25/50%). Added effect: Your recovery speed is increased by 15/20/25%

Developer notes: All of these perks have a low usage rate, low success rate, or both. They have all seen buffs to make them more appealing and more effective.

Killer Perks

The following perks have become General Perks, and their names have changed:

  • Surge is now Jolt
  • Mindbreaker is now Fearmonger
  • Cruel Limits is now Claustrophobia

Perk Balancing

  • Hex: Retribution: Oblivious condition changed to trigger from interacting with any type of totem (was just cleansing hex totems): Increased aura reveal time to 15 seconds (was 10 seconds)
  • Hex: Blood Favor: Pallet blocking effect now triggers off survivors losing a health state (was basic attacks). Pallet blocking radius increased to 32 meters (was 16 meters). Pallet blocking is now centered around the survivor losing health. Cooldown has been removed
  • Hex: The Third Seal: Blindness effect now triggers off basic attacks and special attacks (was just basic attacks)
  • Hex: Thrill of the Hunt: Survivor penalty now applies to both Cleansing and Blessing actions (was just Cleansing). Penalty stacks increased to 8/9/10% per stack (was 4/5/6%). Maximum penalty increased to 40/45/50% (was 30%). Loud noise notification has been removed
  • Fearmonger (formerly Mindbreaker): Now applies Exhausted and Blindness to survivors (was just Exhausted)

Developer notes: Hex: Retribution and Hex: Thrill of the Hunt have been adjusted to take the new Boon Totem perks into account. The other perks have been generally unpopular, so some buffs are warranted to increase viability.

Changes from PTB

Hex: Blood Favor

  • Now triggers when a survivor loses a health state, and the area of effect is centered on the survivor

Boon Perks

  • Multiple instances of the same Boon Perk no longer stack when the areas of effect overlap from multiple totems
  • Blessing a Hex Totem now takes 24 seconds (was 14 seconds)
  • Boon Totem range has been reduced to 24 meters (was 28 meters)

The Deathslinger

  • Add-on - Wanted Poster: Decreased movement speed while aiming to 2.5% (was 10%)
  • Add-on - Jaw Smasher: Decreased movement speed while aiming to 1% (was 5%)

The Trickster

  • Add-on – Ji-Woon's Autograph
  • Decreased the reduction of blades required to 1 (was 2)

Mikaela Reid

  •  Lowered Mikaela Reid's voice

Dev notes: Blood Favor was changed to use healthstates instead of attacks to be more balanced for killers like Legion and Trickster, as well as recentering the trigger location on the survivor to prevent situations where a survivor was injured at a distance. Boon Totems were a bit too strong on the PTB, but these changes should bring them into line with our expectations. The Deathslinger add-ons were adjusted to account for his buffed base movement speed. Ji-Woon's Autograph had an error that caused it to have the same reduction as the rarer addon Fizz-Spin Soda.

Known Issues

  • Add-on text in non-English languages is not completely updated / translated.

5.1.1 Patch Notes

Content

The Trickster:

  • Increased time before Laceration decay to 15s (was 10s)
  • Increased maximum throw speed bonus to 30% (was 25%)

The Trickster's performance is still lower than we want him after the 5.1.0 release, so we decided to add a bit of power in a few places. Chase dynamics are more interesting now that he has a short delay before Laceration decays but it was a bit too easy for him to lose partial progress toward damaging a Survivor, meriting an increase to the delay.

Power:

  • Maximum Laceration is now 6 (was 8).

  • Shorter delay before Laceration starts to decay (now 10 seconds, was 20 seconds)
  • Laceration removed upon successful basic attack now 3 (was 4)
  • Main Event starts throwing knives 1 second sooner
  • 30 knife hits required to activate Main Event (was 20)
  • 30 second window to activate Main Event (was 10)
  • New knife hit indicators have been added to show when knives connect with Survivors. 

Addons:

  • Melodious Murder: Moderately decreases knives' reload time at lockers.
  • Fizz-Spin Soda: Smaller effect (starts at 2 knives thrown instead of 3; balanced with smaller maximum Laceration)
  • Iridescent Photocard: When a Survivor’s Laceration Meter is two or less Blade hits away from the maximum, they are inflicted with the Exposed status effect.
  • Death Throes Compilation: When Main Event ends, The Trickster's knives are replenished.
  • Lucky Blade: Hitting a survivor with a Blade during Main Event slightly extends its duration. (0.2s)
  • Waiting for You Watch: Hitting a survivor with a Blade during Main Event moderately extends its duration. (0.3s)

Changes from PTB to Live:

  • Now starts with 44 knives (was 60)
  • Maximum knife rate of fire bonus after throwing 8 knives is 25% (was 33%)

  • Hex: Crowd Control: Effect now lasts 14/17/20 seconds (was 10/12/14 seconds)

Technical Updates

  • The unhooking interaction now has higher priority than the Self-Care interaction. If injured, the prompt for unhooking will no longer be replaced with a prompt to self heal.
  • When a Killer attempts to grab a Survivor, but the request is refused by the server (usually because the Survivor has stopped performing the interaction) the Killer will now automatically transition into an attack instead. In addition, achievement and challenge progress will be granted at the beginning of the grab attempt, regardless of whether or not the attempt is successful.
  • Stun validation has been added to the hit validator. If a Killer has a pending stun on the server, the server will reject the hit. This will be most noticeably in situations such as a Killer who is attacking at the same time a survivor is throwing a pallet, and it should reduce instances where survivors appear to take damage after stunning a Killer.
  • Effects that improve a Killer's hearing, such as the perk "Stridor" or the add-on "Swing Chains," will only be heard from the Killer's perspective. Survivors will no longer hear themselves as louder when the Killer is running such effects.

5.0.2 Patch Notes


Performance Issues 

This update contains a few changes that should improve performance for many players. That said, some performance issues still remain. The team is still actively working on more fixes across multiple platforms, including consoles. We will be monitoring the changes made within this bugfix patch for stability.  

We're hoping this update will also help performance on the Raccoon City Police Station map, but we want to ensure it is stable enough to be reinstated for live games. We will be monitoring how the map is doing in custom games with these new changes and provide you all with an update soon. 

Thank you for your patience as we continue to work on further improvements to the game’s performance!  

Switch Performance

We have reduced the overall visual quality on Switch to help improve performance. The game may still crash when played on the Raccoon City Police Station map, but less frequently. Rest assured, we are still working on ensuring that the new map does not crash on this platform.
