Change Log[edit | edit source]

Patch 2.5.0[edit | edit source]

  • Updated the description to reflect that it does not trigger when the Survivor is in the Dying State IconHelp dying.png or affected by Traps.


Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • It is not advised to use Distortion together with Object Of Obsession IconPerks objectOfObsession.png, as it will cause Distortion to lose Tokens whenever one uses Object Of Obsession to read the Killer's Aura, independent of whether or not the Killer also reads the Survivor's Aura at the same time.
  • The initial quote in the flavour text is a reference to "Freyja", the Goddess of love, sex, beauty, fertility, gold, seiðr (magic of fortune-telling), war, and death in Norse mythology.
