Hooks

Hook Stages

  • Hook Stages 1 & 2 would be increased by 15 seconds to 60 seconds each, giving a bonus overall hook time of 30 seconds.
    • A Survivor would still only have 3 attempts to free themselves before reaching Struggle Phase.

Hook Score Events

  • Hook and Sacrifice score events were adjusted.
    • Instead of getting a flat 150 Hooking points and Sacrifice points based on time hooked, the Killer would receive Hook and Sacrifice points as follows:
Score Event Value Trigger
Hooking 500 Hooking a Survivor
Hooked 200 Hooking a Survivor for the their first time
Entity Summoned 200 Getting a Survivor into the 2nd stage of Sacrifice
Sacrifice 200 Sacrificing a Survivor

Post-Patch Changes

These changes were ultimately implemented into the Game with the release of the Victory Cube:

Killer Goals

  • Killer Goals were used to calculate whether a Killer had won/lost or tied a match.
  • Killers could earn a maximum of +4 Killer goals from a single Survivor, up to +16 Killer Goals in a match.

Obtaining Killer Goal Points

  1. Hooking: For each hook phase, you gained +1 Killer Goals.
    1. First time hooked +1
    2. Struggle +1
    3. Sacrifice +2 (+1 for the phase and +1 for the player's death)
  2. Memento Mori:
    1. Performing a Memento Mori on a Survivor granted +2 Killer Goals. (+ 1 for the action and +1 for the player's death)
    2. Bleed out: Bleeding out a Survivor granted +1 Killer Goals. (+0 for the bleed out and +1 for the player's death)
  3. Survivor Disconnect Loading:
    1. Survivors who disconnected during loading would grant Killers +2 Killer Goals each. (Killers would still be able to satisfy their Killer Goals when this happened, but as the Killer would not play against these Survivors, they were only granted half the points)
  4. Survivor Disconnect during Trial:
    1. Survivors who disconnected after 5 minutes of the trial would grant the Killer +4 Killer Goals as they would be depriving the Killer of his Killer Goals otherwise.
  5. Killer Disconnects:
    1. All Killer Goals were negated and the Killer would be awarded 0 Killer Goals.

Tally Screen Results

The number of obtained Killer Goal points at the end of the trial would determine the amount of Rank Pips a Killer earned:

  • Fewer than 8 Killer Goals would result in -1 Rank Pip and the lose message

"Entity Displeased".

  • 8 Killer Goals would result in no Rank Pip gain or loss and the message

"Brutal Killer".

  • 9 to 15 Killer Goals would result in a +1 Rank Pip gain and the win message

"Ruthless Killer".

  • 16 Killer Goals would result in +2 Rank Pips and the win message

"Merciless Killer".

  • Disconnecting from a Trial or Leaving a Trial would result in -2 Rank Pips

and the lose message "Disgraceful Defeat".
