Status Effects show whenever a Survivor is affected by a special effect or affliction, indicated by a corresponding icon above the Perk diamond.
The icon's colour will reflect whether it is a buff (yellow) or a debuff (red).

Tiered Status Effects feature chevrons on the icon. The more chevrons a Status Effect shows, the stronger is its effect.

Perk Effects System

The Perk Effects System was the original and up to Patch 1.5.0 only system available to display any Unlockables affecting a Player that are not equipped by themselves.
It displayed all HUD information in regards to Perks and Add-ons affecting Survivors and Killers.
With the introduction of Status Effects and Proficiency Indicators, its only use these days is to indicate effects another Survivor's or the Killer's Perks Perks}} have on the Player.

A Perk affecting other Survivors will display its icon with either a turquoise (buff) or red (debuff) background (see below), next to the Perk Diamond in the lower right corner of the screen.

Prior to the implementation of Status Effect and Proficiency Indicators the type of effect an Add-on had on the Player could not be conveyed by that system and relied on the Player recognising the icon and knowing about its effects, which was ultimately deemed too user-unfriendly, especially for newcomers and inexperienced Players, prompting the devs to implement the new system.

The Perk Effects System was kept for Perks, however, as it is easier to remember Perk icons and their associated effects, and continues to be used to this day, hinting at its age by continuing to use a turquoise colour instead of yellow to display buffs.

Change Log

Patch 2.5.0

  • All Timers no longer stack or automatically reset, but will now take the highest remaining Status timer and ignore the other.
    • If the new Timer is the higher one, the previous timer is discarded and the Status Effect icon will visually reset to 100 %.
    • If the new Timer is the lower one, the new timer is discarded and the Status Effect icon will remain at its current progression.

Patch 3.4.0

  • The red debuff icon applied by Perks no longer appears on the Survivors' HUD until the debuff is active.


Trivia

  • There is an unused Status Effect called "Vision". It would most likely have been used to show when something enhanced one's Aura-reading abilities, but no such Unlockable currently uses it.
