Overview[edit | edit source]
When a Killer presses and holds the primary attack button instead of just tapping it, they will perform a Lunge Attack, which has more range than the standard Quick Attack.
Mechanic[edit | edit source]
During the Lunge animation, the Killer's base Movement Speed momentarily (0.3 seconds) increases to 150 %, causing them to dash forward, which is what gives them the increased range over the Quick Attack.
Range[edit | edit source]
A Killer's Lunge range is directly determined by their base movement speed. There are two exceptions to this, but it can generally be said, that faster Killers have a longer range and slower Killers have a shorter range.
If a Killer has multiple base movement speeds with which they can perform a Lunge attack (currently only The Shape), their Lunge range will vary between them.
Trivia[edit | edit source]
- The Lunge Mechanic works very similar to the Perk Dead Hard for Survivors
- Prior to Patch 1.9.0, The Nurse had a special post-blink lunge with aim-assist, which was the longest lunge in the game.
- She now has the default Killer lunge, that is not tied to her movement speed anymore.
- The Shape on Evil Within III is granted an additional step during the lunge animation, giving him a longer lunge range and currently the longest lunge range in the game.
