    For a survivor who is a pyromaniac:

    Lost Rites: When a survivor dies, you are able to set a 5/6/7 meter radius on fire in the area in which they died. You and all other survivors are immune to the flames, but if a killer walks through it, they are blinded and hindered (5%). The effect will persist an additional 3 seconds after leaving its range. The fire lasts until the killer hooks another survivor or you are put into the dying health state.

    Burned Bridges: You are able spend 10 seconds to set breakable walls and thrown pallets on fire. This action, when completed, will continually alert the killer. If the killer gets within a 5 meter radius of the burning object and stares at it, they are blinded. The object will burn for 30/45/60 seconds before breaking and can still be broken by the killer (it will however blind them).

    Pyrotechnics: You are guaranteed to obtain a flashlight or a fire cracker during your first search through a chest. Increases flashlight and fire cracker efficiency and blindness duration by 30/35/40%.

    Informed Hunter

    Information gathering can help you in the long run.

    when survivors escape a chase, a random single perk that has been used during a chase, will appear on the survivor when looking at them. they will also appear during a chase.

    when you looking directly at a totem in 16 meters range, that totem will show the perk that is associated with totem to you. that perk label will be shown to you as long as the totem or the perk is active.

    any gates shown to you, their auras will be shown to you during the match.

    slightly increases the chance that a totem will spawn further from the gates.

  • The perk is called cockroach: 

    You become obsessed with one survivor, every time that your obsession blinds or stuns you, you earn a token that reduces that effect. (the things that grant you a token are pallets dropped on you, head on,flashlights and fireworks)( if you're using nemesis and you get stun or blind, it will still count as a token for cockroaches but decisive will not count)  the max tokens are four. 1 token 20% 2 tokens 40% 3 tokens 60% 4 tokens 80%. If your obsession is scrafirsed or killed the perk deactivates. (At Cockroach, perk level one you can get up to two tokens)

    Survivor: Preyed Instinct

    When The Killer becomes Undetectable, you see the Aura of all other Survivors for 3/4/5s, and an Audio/Visual cue is played. This has a cooldown of 60s.

  • Shymare_11Shymare_11 Member Posts: 221

    Theme: European Plague Doctor

    •Blood Letting: When healing a survivor, you are able to press the active ability button to activate the effect of this perk. When pressed, the survivor being healed by you will scream (revealing their location for 5 seconds). They will no longer be able to be healed and receive the hemorrhage status effect for 45/35/25 seconds. When the duration is over, the survivor under the effect of Blood Letting will be healed by one health state. Any attack that would put the survivor into the dying health state will instead inflicted the deep wound status effect for 60 seconds and they will not be healed after the duration of hemorrhage has expired. This perk has a 45 second cool down.

    •Fragrant Herb Recipes: Your aura will now be slightly/moderately/considerably (1/3/5 meters) detached from your body. When you are injured, your aura is hidden from all players.

    •Impending Doom: After being put into the dying health state, this perk activates. The next time you are in a chase and the killer attacks you; instead the damage from the attack is ignored, your running movement speed is increased to 150% for 7 seconds, and the aura of all survivors are revealed to you for the rest of the trial. This perk permanently deactivates after use.

    Perk: CHARGE

    When hope is lost there is only will, THE WILL TO FIGHT!

    While using this perk if you sprint from 15m away or more toward the killer, then you are able to stun for just as long as a pallet drop or head on. The exaustion status can last from 30 sec to 180 sec depending on what level the perk is.

    This perk is great at countering the killers speed and fixation on either an individual hurt survivor or obsession. This perk is also able to be countered by most killers with ease.

    HEX: BEWARE THE DOOT!: A Hex rooting its power in spook! Anytime a generator is completed, all survivors hear an *UNHOLY DOOT* shortly before 3 little skeletons rise from the ground at the completed generator to attack them for 1 health state, survivors must try to run run for their lives during this time. The skeletons last for 10 seconds before being called back to the fog by the entities own DOOT. When a survivor vaults a window, the skeletons collide with the window, exploding! Skeletons will try to crawl over and under pallets, to continue chase! Survivors unlucky enough to be hit by the bones, suffer from hemorrhage and mangled status effects.

    This of a jump scare killer:

    Survivor : Leave no scratch marks after taking a protection hit or unhooking 3/5/7 seconds

    Killer gets notified and can listen for pained grunts so I think this perk would be helpful a fair amount of time to where killer may or may not find survivors

  • RullisiRullisi Member Posts: 183

    •Femme Fatale: If you have reached the second stage of sacrifice and you picked up by the killer again, you are given a difficult skill check. If you succeed, you are freed and the killer stunned for 5 seconds. If you fail, the killer gains a notification and the perk remains active for the next time you are picked up.

    So I’ve designed a lot of perks to go with fan made chapters and then just more random perks to throw into the base game. Here they are.

    -Killer perks:

    Autophobia: Your sinister aura frightens all those who have an empathetic heart. When in a chase with a survivor, all other survivors not being chased will suffer a 10/15/20% slower repairing speed.

    Hex: Haunting Images. Your insatiable desire for blood causes you to become reckless and unpredictable, instilling fear in those close to your presence. After a survivor is in your terror radius for 20/17.5/15 seconds, that survivor will scream and reveal their position. Any survivor who hides in a locker for longer than 10 seconds will be immediately pushed out from the locker and unable to enter the locker for 10 seconds.

    Maniacal Arrogance: Your persistence and arrogance through continual loss strains you to reap your rewards. After chasing a survivor for 20 seconds, that survivor becomes your obsession. The obsession will become exposed for 15 seconds when a generator is finished.

    Survivor Perks:

    Groundhog’s Shadow: The slightest chance to see the next day fills you with hope, and if you fail, you’ll try again. Once per match, after fully healing a survivor, you are able to instantly heal yourself from the dying state by pressing the active ability button while recovering. After the use of this ability, you remain broken until entering the dying state again.

    Party Animal: Your natural aggressiveness makes you harder to catch. Whenever you stun a killer with a pallet, the killer is affected by the stun an extra 25/30/35% worth of time of their stun duration.

    Soft Steps: In an area where anything could be heard, you have taken precautions to reduce your noise. Every 30/25/20 seconds, while sprinting, all noise you emit will be muted for 6 seconds. The timer restarts after the 6 seconds are exhausted.

    Find Her: Even in pressing times, you are able to work through your pain and continue. After taking a protection hit, the perk activates. The next time you are injured from being healthy will cause to leave no blood trail, make no scream, cause no grunts of pain, and lose scratch marks for 6/7/8 seconds. Taking a protection hit causes you to become the obsession.

    Theme: Ballerina

    •1st Position: This perk has 15/20/25 charges. When you start running, at the cost of one charge per second, your movement speed is increased by 10%. Charges can only be refilled by standing still (1 charge per 7 seconds without moving), with no charges your running movement speed is decreased by 5% and your breathing is 25% louder.

    •Prima Donna: While rush vaulting or falling, you have a short period of invincibility, and 60 seconds of a 7% haste effect. After, you are exhausted for 60/50/40 seconds. You do not receive a haste effect while exhausted.

    •Pirouette: When the killer near misses you with their attack, this perk gains a token (to a maximum of 5 tokens). When 5 tokens are reached, you can press the active ability button and stun the killer if they are within a 3/4/5 meter radius of you. This perk loses all its tokens if you are hooked, if it has not reached its maximum yet. (i.e. If you have less than 5 stacks when hooked, you lose it all.)

  • NightsinNightsin Member Posts: 6


    Constructor: One time during the trial, the surviver can change a breakable wall into a vault (window or pallet, idk :)) in ?/?/? seconds.

  • Shymare_11Shymare_11 Member Posts: 221

    Theme: Dissociative Identity Disorder


    Remorse: Every 20/15/10 seconds spent of out of chase, this perk gains a token up to a maximum of 6 tokens. For each token gain a 10% movement speed increase. When entering a chase, lose all tokens. If a survivor is sacrificed, this perk goes into a cool down period of 25 seconds; in which, tokens cannot be gathered and movement speed is reset to normal.

    Aggression: For each survivor still alive, gain a 25% decrease to the cool down of missed attacks. When entering a chase, the aura of all other survivors outside a 45/30/25 meter radius are revealed to you.

    Relish: When a survivor takes a protection hit for another survivor, your attack cool down is removed for an additional attack. Gain 15/20/25% more blood points for the brutality category.


    Attached: When there is an obsession that is not you, this perk activates. As long as the obsession is alive, gain a 8% movement speed increase. If the obsession is in a chase, you are able to see the aura of the killer. This effect will persist for 3/4/5 seconds after the chase has ended.

    Confrontational: After lasting in a chase for 50/40/30 seconds, this perk activates. When you are picked up start with wiggle progress set to 50%. If you are pulled off an action, you automatically begin wiggling at 33% progress.

    Excited: For each generator completed, increase the size of success zones by 10% and great zones by 20%. After a generator is completed, receive a 25% action speed increase towards repairing, healing, sabotaging, unhooking, searching, unlocking, and opening exit gates for 6/8/10 seconds.

    New Killer Perk: Hex: Hypothermia

    A hex that takes a toll on those who settle their labor in one place.

    Whenever a survivor starts repairing a generator, they next time they stop touching it The Entity will be summoned to hold their hands on the generator for 3/4/5 seconds; this will cause the survivor to remain unable to move and scream revealing their location to the killer (Like the screaming bubbles of The Doctor), and the killer will be able to hit the survivor while they are stuck in position. Once the effect fades, the survivor will be able to move freely

    I call it one and done. This will take the place of a mori. It's a perk that allows you to kill the first survivor that you hook. This would eliminate the add-on and just change it to a perk

    I was going to say if there was a disconnect then it resets. If that first person quits.
