Furtive Chase Usage

How are you putting this Perk to use?

Cause i can't find a good use for it.

And it's not like i'm just sitting at the wikipedia page, making theories.

I just always feel like i'm lacking a Perk slot.

    Well, to prevent tunneling for such a reward that doesn't help much

    But works well when doing challenges

    It has no use. It could be useful if it would decrease the terror radius when you aren't in a chase.

    It's pretty useless.

    I'd love more input on it, but this is not a promising start for positive opinions on FC. 🤭

    I find it useful on two killers actually. Legion and Michael.

    Legion - when you find a survivor, you can frenzy and stab them, then go find the next victim to stab. Chain stabbing is not only effective this way, but alot of the time your speed and lack of half your terror radius means you can stab them before they can react

    michael - while chasing someone in tier 2, you can switch targets quickly and get the jump on survivors who dont expect you to be there, they just think its another survivor whos running away. It also starts to get into the survivors' heads because they wont know when you're close in a chase, or farther away. I actually have alot of success with this. The amount of people ive pulled off gens like this is incredible.

    There is no good use of Furtive Chase. Its a really bad perk. Possibly one of the worst.

    I am 100% convinced that what happened to this perk is that it was meant to reduce the Terror Radius all the time, but they realized in internal testing that it would stack with Monitor & Abuse and be too good. So they slapped "in chase" on it and called it a day. Contradict me Devs I dare you !

    Anyway, its terrible and you should really never use it.

    Before Oni is had basically no use at all but now with Nemesis it has some use. You can run furtive chase, Nemesis, and myc on nurse and everytime someone unhooks the obsession they become the myc and you see their aura because of nemesis so you blink to them and they are obvious so they don't hear you coming and you one shot them.

    Wait, i think i'm reading your comment wrong.

    "...that it was meant to reduce the Terror Radius all the time, but they realized in internal testing that it would stack with Furtive Chase and be too good."

    What do these two "it" refer to, just to clarify?

  • DecarcassorDecarcassor Member Posts: 457

    I typed too fast and didn't double check before posting. I was talking about Monitor & Abuse. I edited it while you typed your answer.

  • BossBoss Member, Trusted Posts: 11,536

    Ahh yes, i see now.

    Thanks for that! 👍️

    In any case, that's a bit of an odd design decision, probably best to have it be reworked entirely.

    Apparently, you can get a free instant down by using Furtive Chase, Nemesis, and Make Your Choice. 😁🤗

    Tofu made a vid trying to get the TR reduction aspect to work shortly after it was released. He didnt have any luck... He tried again later on pairing it with Nemesis too so he could get an aura reading on a survivor after an unhook and go for a 1 shot using the savior...still kinda meh

  • NMCKENMCKE Member Posts: 7,294

    Furtive Chase and Dying Light allows you to get more stacks (slow the game down, just a lil bit). :P

  • PigNRunPigNRun Member Posts: 2,428

    I only ever used it for the "Hook the Obsession 10 times" challenge. Almost did it in a single match.

  • AneurysmAneurysm Member Posts: 1,807

    I can't think of any use apart from the 3 perk combo others mentioned. And with paint brush on old Freddy. Otherwise it's a weird perk, lots of work for a less useful version of monitor (which is passive)

  • PigMainClaudettePigMainClaudette Member Posts: 3,842

    The problem with Furtive is the "IN A CHASE" clause. Remove that, and we might have a usable perk.

  • WeckWeck Member Posts: 3,352

    Besides myers shenanigans(the addon that lets you stalk the obsession really fast) and the fc,nemesis,myc combo other people said... I don't see the point of using it.

    There's just not enough mechanics with obsession to justify the use.🤷‍♂️

  • anarchy753anarchy753 Member Posts: 2,737

    It can but it also makes managing your obsession to gain those stacks a pain in the ass. You always can't hook the person who just unhooked, and the person who just got unhooked probably has DS or BT on them, so the 2 people you know the location of are the lowest priority. It makes life difficult for like 2-3% slow (2% from 3% affecting 2/3 survivors and 3% from 6% affecting 1/2 survivors.)

    Is a second perk slot worth 2-3% slow after the 9th and 10th hook? No. You've already won by that point, and/or they aren't touching gens anyway.

    It can be used alongside Nemesis. I've also seen the two with Dark Devotion on Spirit which, alongside her base TR jumping around when she uses her power, and the fact that it mutes her phasing coming from other players, made for an all round confusing as hell match.

    It's still a really [BAD WORD] perk. It doesn't really do anything except switch the obsession to make other perks work. I really dislike the concept of a perk that I need to bring to make other perks function like regular strength perks, it means I'm down a slot just to make 2 crap things feel decent, when I could be running 2 decent things. The chase TR effect is worthless (even moreso from the fact that 9 times out of 10 it's alongside Nemesis now.

    I only found it use full on Myers when paired with judith's journal, dead rabbit and m&a and that was before nemesis was out
