PC - "Dead Hardy" Survivor master challenge not registering properly.

MysticW Member Posts: 5

The "Dead Hardy" survivor master challenge from tome II level I requiring you to dodge a basic attack with dead hard appears to be impossible to finish. This might be due to the hit validation change in 5.3.1, though I'm not completely sure. I've played 10-15 matches with David King running dead hard and the challenge, in which I've done multiple things like:

-Used dead hard through the killer as they try to hit me. (effectively dodging the attack)

-Used dead hard to the side as the killer tried to hit me. (effectively dodging the attack)

-Used dead hard for distance as a killer tried to hit me. (effectively dodging the attack)

-Used dead hard into the wall for invincibility frames as a killer tried to hit me. (effectively dodging the attack)

-Used dead hard wrong and gotten hit by the killer due to poor timing. (not dodging the attack)

None of these have counted for challenge completion. I'm a completionist and I like fully finishing tomes (plus a lore entry is locked behind this challenge) and not being able to complete this tome even though I've tried practically everything bums me out.

    Same for me it must be bugged or something is there anyway to report this being bugged?

    Okay check this video out https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iZZtJEXsVLY&ab_channel=Desmondlucy

    I did it almost frame for frame exactly as this got in the little fenced off area so I couldn't graze off to one side of the other and Dead Harded directly into a bubba left click and just shoved my David's face right in his ol' belly button during the animation so it was perfect I took no damage he swung at me right as a dead harded the frames were not off a millisecond from this video and still no unlock. This perk is 1000% bugged right now I seriously just wasted an entire like 6+hours worth of gametime trying to get a challenge that is just unattainable right now. Please look into this Devs!

    Just to keep this alive, I have also discovered this bug. I’ve literally spent the last two days intentionally and immediately getting into chases, even using No Mither to speed up that process. Nothing lol. I know it’s only 25k BP but I do like having the old Tomes available to complete as a new player.

    Hoping they fix this soon! Glad to know I'm not alone in experiencing this bug, though.

    I am also experiencing this issue, across any character who has Dead Hard, for various uses of the perk (for distance or to avoid a hit). I have "completed" it multiple times and received no progress.
