Technician Perk

I feel like this perk in particular has the potential to be a viable option as a survivor but where it stands currently, it's too situational. These are strictly suggestions only. :)

My suggestions for this perk would be to either:

  • Make the perk prevent explosions more often.
  • Make the hearing distance stronger or even completely unnoticeable.
  • Make this perk impact all skill checks.

    This perk is fine honestly.

    It's just outclass by the survivors meta. It's a very useful stealth based perk.

    That's true. I wonder what percentage of survivors run Self-Care. :)

    Devs did a statistical analysis of the perk where it suggest that it was picked 21% of the time.

    Keep in mind, that's a high number considering you can only use one perk for one perk slot. It's the most popular perk across all platforms, all ranks.

    Would it be game-breaking if they made it a default? (Self-Care was built in to every survivor).

    Yes, because killers would be even worse balance wise.

    True but they could implement a nerfed version. I don't know what it would be. Maybe healing yourself without a medkit would result in a status effect such as exhaustion. I don't know but there must be a way it could work. :)

    That's... actually not a bad idea.

    I don't think giving self care to every survivor will be a good idea even with an exhaustion addition like that. I'd rather see overused perks like SC get hit slightly with a nerf but not so much to destroy the perk, while buffing all of the other perks Survivors choose not to use.

    It's a case of Dominant Strategy, the top level stuff is so good there isn't much reason to use anything else.

    I actually like perks like Stake Out, because it does a pretty good job of countering one of the top Killer perks, Ruin.

    Yeah, there are a lot of perks that are abandoned because of perks like Self-Care.

    As a killer, I can tell you one thing :
    This perk is pretty underrated.
    When you patrol gens, you very rarely go under 8 meters to check if a survivor is on it. You usually linger around and if you don't hear the sound, you gtfo (unless the gen had no progress before).

    Against quick roamers such as billy and such, it's actually pretty good to have around.
