I just played on haddonfield and the last survivor wiggled off 4 times due to lack of hooks. They didnt even stay in same area. There were like 12 hooks in the entire map total -3 from the other survivors.
i suppose some hooks just don't respawn as quickly as they should be. i've had a few encounters where my hooks took longer than their time to respawn themselves, even with one of the perks equipped to reduce the time it takes.
some took about 2 gens worth of time to respawn, which is a bit ridiculous, but i'm not complaining too much.
i honestly don't know if this is a bug or not, or maybe i just lose sense of time, but who knows?
If you kill someone on hook it doesn't return unless you have hangmans trick.
Measuring time by gens aint the best method. Maybe it felt so long bcoz of saboteur?
Best way is to just test it in kyf
when i mean by gens worth, i meant about how long it takes without addons, and via one survivor repairing,
so that's about a minute and a few seconds.
you are right, though, kyf is a good way to test it. :0
Hooks take 3 minutes to respawn by default.
i could have sworn it was less than that.
Hooks when sabo'ed take 3 mins without hangmans
Hooks when destroyed by the entity (a sacrifice) dont respawn at all without hangmans.
Hooks stay broken for 3 minutes. That's more than enough time for 2 gens to be completed.
With a dedicated saboteur it becomes 3 and a half minutes.
