Make your choice Rank 1 not working
EDIT: I can't read. You need to be away from the hooked person not in range. So no bug, just makes the perk useless.
I have it equipped as The Pig since level 1. I am now level 16 pig and it has NEVER triggered. Last game I tried it in the basement: Hooked a survivor, crouched down behind a wall 2m away from him. Unhooker did not scream and when I hit him he was NOT put into the dying state.
It's on my first slot since I started playing PIG.
