Change Log

Patch 2.1.0

  • Mechanics Change: now causes Scratch Marks to spawn slightly/moderately/considerably closer together than normal, making it easier for a Killer to track a Survivor's path.


Trivia

  • The code behind the effects of Predator is too technical in nature for the numbers behind the modifiers to be useful for anyone without a deep knowledge of the Game's inner workings, hence why they are not made available here. Since the Perk's effects are plainly visible when in use, it is also deemed unnecessary in the first place.
