Change Log[edit | edit source]

Patch 1.3.0[edit | edit source]

  • Quality of Life: Tinkerer now only affects modifiers positively.
  • Nerf: decreased the bonus applied to modifiers to 6/8/10 %.
  • Buff: Tinkerer's bonus is now additive.

Patch 2.1.0[edit | edit source]

  • Mechanics Change: Tinkerer now gives the Killer a noise notification if a Generator is repaired to 85 % and also reduces their Terror Radius to 0 metres for 8/10/12 seconds.


Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Until its rework, Tinkerer was effectively without use on several Killers.
  • Hides and re-instates the Terror Radius in an instant, not gradually like Insidious IconPerks insidious.png does.
  • The Noise notification may trigger multiple times on the same Generator if it was regressed below 85 % and repaired back up to it.
  • Tinkerer's old flavour text still addressed The Hillbilly by his Alpha name "The Crooked", rather than by his current name:
    • "The Crooked makes impressive tools out of scraps... Tools aimed at maiming us in creative ways... It's horrifying to think it's actually intelligent." — Unknown, Notebook

Add-on Support[edit | edit source]

Rework[edit | edit source]

  • Tinkerer required an immense workload of additional coding each time new Add-ons were created, since the Developers had to work with a static buff and keep mind that Add-ons without it shouldn't be too weak and those with it shouldn't be too strong. They compared that workload to having to create an additional set of Unique Perks IconHelp perks.png for the Killer, something they were no longer willing to do and thus intended for Tinkerer to be reworked eventually, which happened with Patch 2.1.0.
