Change Log[edit | edit source]

Patch 1.3.0[edit | edit source]

  • Tinkerer now only applies its bonus to positive modifiers.
  • Decreased the bonus applied to modifiers to 6%/8%/10%.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Tinkerer is currently unusable on two Characters: The Nightmare IconHelpLoading nightmare.png and The Pig IconHelpLoading pig.png.
    • Tinkerer gives the Developers a lot of additional coding to do, which is why the aforementioned Killers do not make any use of it. Thus, in the near future, Tinkerer will be changed into a completely different Perk altogether.
  • Tinkerer's description is a bit inaccurate. In essence, any Add-on IconHelp addons.png that states being affected by Tinkerer will either have its positive effects enhanced or its negative effects decreased.
    • Example for enhancing positive effects: Primer Bulb FulliconAddon primerBulb.png in combination with Tinkerer will decrease the Chainsaw charge time even further.
    • Example for decreasing negative effects: Polished Electrode FulliconAddon polishedElectrode.png in combination with Tinkerer will lessen the decreased Carter's Spark charge time.
  • Tinkerer's flavour text still addresses The Hillbilly by his Alpha name "The Crooked", rather than by his current name.
