Survivor saw my perks

ba_tetsuoba_tetsuo Member Posts: 253

Was playing a game as killer against a swf group including a twitch streamer. After the match, I watched it from their perspective on their channel (I always do this to see areas of improvement).

Anyway, at the start of the match, one of the streamers teammate immediately called the 4 perks I had. It wasn't a question, and I can reasonably assume it wasn't a guess. They were certain they knew exactly what I was playing. Any idea how that could have happened and what I can do to prevent it?

    Do you have a link to the video?

    If you yourself stream you can hide your perks in 2 ways:

    1. Pick your perks before you enter the lobby. Never have the perks screen open once you enter the lobby.
    2. Use an overlay to hide your perks. I do this and have had SWF groups come to my stream to attack me and even go so far as to claim they are reporting me cause I was cheating to hide my perks from them.

    I can try to find it again. I watch a lot of streams through the day, and don't remember their user name.

    They didn't know because of previous encounters. Usually I play skill check doc, and just started playing spirit today, so even if we had played before, it was a new killer/build.

    I do stream, but I wasn't streaming at the time.

    Something similar happened to me, but as survivor. Once after a match where i got face camped, the killer told me it was because it was using DS (which yes he obviously would have known). However, we got into an argument and he said he was 'cleansing the world of toxic survivors that run meta perks'. I said i don't usually run the meta perks, then he proceeded to tell me what perks i've been using in the past few days (they were meta perks as i'd been tunnelled alot in that event that was on so i wanted a fighting chance). I still to this day have no idea how he checked exactly what perks i'd been running, but i'm assuming it's something to do with steam.

    @ba_tetsuo well.. without a video there's no much we can do for you but to offer you our shoulder to cry on.

    Probably some new program.

    Could it possibly be you were playing perks that could be detected from prior experience?

    I have played since August and it’s kind of easy to tell and guess what some might have. Especially Iron Grasp. And people with TotH tend to run noed. Etc.

    You should certainly report them and attach the video of them calling your perks. If they did it instantly when the match began it would be pretty clear whether they had time to open up the friends list, see your name, check your stream and see. (Even if you weren't streaming, no guarantee you didn't delete the vod)

    It'd also pay to see if they do it every single match too.

  • ba_tetsuoba_tetsuo Member Posts: 253

    I mean, I was running Surveillance, Discordance, Ruin (an obvious one), and Haunted Ground. I can't imagine that combo as being particularly obvious. Even if they were kind of obvious, it was strange that they called it literally as soon as the match started, without any kind of indication.

    "cleansing the world of toxic survivors"?!

    Wow. :( sorry that happened to you.

    Was this the only match they did it in? Look at the rest of the vod/past streams to see if the streamer played with the same person and the same person kept calling out all those perks or something.

    Did you use the add-on to silence your transition? It's a common build if they know you're using that add-on.

    One day during a match with a friend, he crashed (we don't know why he always crash but anyways) and he saw the killer perks from the score screen, though the match was running
