Trivia

  • Stake Out does not consume a Token if you succeed a regular Great Skill Check.
  • The Lullabies of The Nightmare and The Huntress do not give any progression towards Tokens.
    • The same is true for a fake Terror Radius induced by the "Discipline" "Discipline"}} Add-ons, which gives Stake Out the added functionality of knowing whether you are inside The Doctor's actual Terror Radius or not.
  • Stake Out can be used in a similar fashion to Premonition Premonition}} or Spine Chill Spine Chill}}, alerting you to being in the Killer's Terror Radius as long as the Perk has less than 4 Tokens.
  • Stake Out does not gain any Tokens when in the Dying State Dying State}} or when hooked.
  • It is not advised to use Stake Out together with Autodidact Autodidact}} as Autodidact disables Great Healing Healing}} Skill Checks, cancelling out the benefits of Stake Out.
