Why does Clairvoyance show the auras of hooks?

Clairvoyance (Mikaela teachable) is a perk that activates whenever you cleanse a Totem. While empty-handed, you hold down the Ability button and for up to 10 seconds you get to see the auras of Exit Gate switches, generators, hooks, chests, and the hatch within a 64 meter range in Tier 3.

All of those auras make sense except for one, hooks. Why exactly does it show you the auras of hooks?

The only real reason a survivor would need to see hook auras is if you’re running a sabo build. However, if you’re using the perk Saboteur, it already shows you hook auras whenever someone gets picked up. And if you bring a sabo toolbox, Clairvoyance won’t work since you need to be empty-handed.

Instead, I’d rather Clairvoyance show you the auras of lockers within a 64 meter range and remove the hook auras (or keep it since it really doesn’t raise the usefulness of the perk). This way, Clairvoyance would have good synergy with the other totem-cleansing perk, Inner Healing, by allowing you to see which lockers are nearby for you to heal yourself.

    Because it’s meant to be a map-like perk, without a map. Maps have the ability to show hook auras (with the Red Twine add-on or a Rainbow Map).

    I wouldn’t mind adding the ability to see locker auras though.

    I guess it can sometimes be useful to know where hooks are, especially the basement. Running away from hooks when you know you're going to die anyway can be a good play. I don't think they should remove it, it doesn't hurt to have the info.

    I mean sure, I wouldn’t mind it showing locker auras. There’s no real reason to remove the hook auras though - having the info isn’t going to work against you.

    You can make this perk last the entire map just by tapping the button instead of holding it.

    The ability to see hook auras combos well with breakout and metal of man, I suppose.
