Was it so powerful that it needed range? I figured it was just a decent perk but not something that needed range unless I'm mistaken and you guys can tell me why it was necessary?
It's probably easier to code a huge range than to just set it as unlimited. Remember when they changed the beartrap noise to 1000m?
no, i don't think i was here for that change
During the Trapper's add-on rework, they changed the distance the Trapper could hear snapped traps to 1000m. There were memes about being able to hear them being snapped from the moon.
128m is a very long distance. The best way to visualize it is each sidewalk square on Haddonfield is 1m. I very much doubt if you count them, walking from one end of the map to the other, there would be 128 of them.
fair enough point
It's not a nerf. I'm pretty sure it always was 128 meters because maps can't be bigger than that but they just stated it to be "infinite". To be more in line with the other perk descriptions they just added the exact number to the perk.
They actually buffed empathy level 1 and 2 which makes them even better so don't complain about non existent nerfs.
Ah, I see thanks for clarifying that!
