Change Log

Patch 2.4.0

  • Buff: Diversion now spawns Scratch Marks at the location of where the pebble lands.


Trivia

  • Thrown pebbles do not collide with walls, objects, props and other characters.
    • The landing zone spawning the Loud Noise notification and the Scratch Marks will therefore always be 10/15/20 metres away from the Perk user.
  • If used in combination with Fixated IconPerks fixated.png, the Perk user will be able to see the Scratch Marks created at the landing zone.
