Adrenaline Not Activating

Fraz Member Posts: 2

I've been running adrenaline ever since I've had the game. I know how the perk works and what activates it. I've been using it on Mikaela today and it has not been working. I was on the hook as the last gen popped and upon being unhooked my adrenaline did not heal me or give me a speed boost. This has happened twice, unsurprisingly the only two times adrenaline should have activated on my character. I died because of it.

Steps for repeating-

1. Get hooked with 1 gen left

2. Have the last gen pop

3. Get unhooked

4. Watch as adrenaline does not activate.

This may be a console only issue. I'm not sure. I've seen other people complaining about it on PS4 and Xbox, and I play on Switch. Please fix this bug.

    Just had the exact same scenario happen to me, my adrenaline didn’t pop after getting unhooked and last gen got done while I was on the hook. I’m on PS5

    This just happened to me too. On hook, last gen popped, got rescued and was still injured. No speed boost either.

    Happened to me on the PS 4. Was taken off the hook in the end game, hung before the EGC started. No adrenaline. >.<

    This happens to me consistently on PS5. Adrenaline will activate if the last gen was done, and I wasn't on-hook or on the killer's shoulder, but if the last gen is done while I'm being carried or I'm on-hook, then it won't activated once freed.

    Is this a bug or a sneaky nerf to a perk that was perfectly fine? I really hope it's a bug tho.

    I also just had this happen today on PS4. Although, I thought it was because at the time, while facing a Doctor, I was tier three insane so when I got unhooked I had to 'snap out of it'.

    Looks like they did a sneaky nerf? When checking the description it now says “when exit gates are powered” or was that always the description always been this? Either way I’ve never seen it active when the gates are opened

    When the exit gates are powered means when the last gen is finished.

    It's still not work.

    I was fast vault in the locker and then use head on.

    The moment right after the stun.

    Adrenaline activate but it doesn't heal me. I only get haste boost.

    And yep, I died that match.
