Change Log

Patch 3.1.0

Patch 3.7.0

Trivia

  • Head On begins counting down from the character's model is fully in the Locker IconHelp lockers.png .
  • If a Killer carrying a Survivor gets stunned by Head On, they will release the carried Survivor.
  • If a Survivor performs a rushed action to leave a Locker with Head On equipped, the animation will be slightly different from the default one.
