Change Log

Patch 2.5.0

  • Mechanics Change: Surveillance now applies to all Generators from the start of the trial.
  • Mechanics Change: Surveillance now increases the hearing distance of Generator Repairs by 8 metres.
  • Mechanics Change: Surveillance now highlights the Aura of any regressing Generator that has been interrupted for 8/12/16 seconds.


Trivia

  • Surveillance does not work out-of-the-box, Generators must first be damaged.
    • This can also be done indirectly by Perks such as Hex: Ruin IconPerks hexRuin.png or Surge IconPerks surge.png.
  • If a Generator regresses completely to 0 %, the Aura will turn red again, not yellow.
