Afterpiece tonic direct hits not staggering survivors.
The Clown's power (Afterpiece tonic) normally stops a survivor from preforming certain actions when hit directly with a bottle, this includes very important actions such as cleansing hex totems and opening the exit gates. Unfortunately this has changed with the most recent mid chapter patch. I assume this was not intentional as I could find no mention of this in the patch notes.
I play the game on play station 4 and this issue occurs every trial I play as The Clown.
Replicating this issue is easy, simply play as clown and attempt to interrupt a survivor preforming an action than can normally be interrupted.
Also well done on the mid chapter patch loving so far. Thank you.
