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 no longer boost Add-ons affecting the Power charge speed, but instead will give the Killer a noise notification if a Generator is repaired to 85 % and will also reduce their Terror Radius to 0 metres for 8/10/12 seconds.


Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • The Terror Radius fades away and comes back instantly, not gradually unlike with Insidious IconPerks insidious.png.
  • Up to Patch 2.1.0, Tinkerer was officially not supported on any Killer following the release of The Doctor besides The Cannibal as he shared most of his Add-ons with The Hillbilly.
    • It was unofficially supported on some of The Huntress and The Clown's Add-ons due to spaghetti-code.
    • Tinkerer gave the Developers a lot of additional coding to do, which is why the aforementioned Killers did not make any use of it.
    • Thus, with Patch 2.1.0 Tinkerer was changed into a completely different Perk altogether.
  • 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
