Rare but annoying Myers chase glitch

Morgoroth Member Posts: 2

First of all, I should start off by saying that I only ever play with Vanity Mirror, and I can't confirm whether this bug is specific to that addon or Myers in general - but several times over the past couple weeks, I've noticed a glitch where Myers cannot initiate chase with survivors until he hits them for the first time. No chase music, no BP notification in the corner of the screen.

From what I've noticed, this only seems to happen if, early in the match, I hit someone with my weapon while I'm still in Tier 1. From that point forward, regardless of being in Tier 2 or not, the game seems to think I'm in Mikey's Tier 1 state and unable to gain bloodlust. After achieving a hit on a survivor, it seems to correct itself and realize I'm actually not in T1 anymore and I can gain bloodlust normally. If I lose chase at any point, or start a chase with a different survivor, the glitch starts all over again, same as before.

Oh, and I should add that this bug doesn't get triggered if I get a grab in Tier 1 - only if I actually hit someone. It's not the end of the world, and it's a pretty rare occurrence that I feel the need to smack anyone before tiering up, but I thought it was worth mentioning regardless.

Edit: A friend claims a similar glitch can happen with Legion as well if you get your first hit of the game while in Feral Frenzy, but I can't personally confirm that.

    Thank you for your report, Morgoroth. Would you be able to provide some more information?

    • Platform
    • Perks played
    • Map
    • Frequency of the issue

    Also, if you are on PC (and did not play another match or reopen the game since this occurred), would you be able to provide your Game Log?

    • Press Win+R
    • Type in appdata
    • Press OK
    • In opened window navigate to: \Local\DeadByDaylight\Saved\Logs
    • Usually you would need to attach the DeadByDaylight.log file.
    • Add the file to your bug report (copy and paste file into post)

    Thank you!

    Sure! I play on PC. My perk and addon loadout was:

    Addons: Vanity Mirror & Dead Rabbit

    Perks: Corrupt Intervention, Monitor & Abuse, Deadlock, & Jolt

    The last map this happened on was Toba Landing, but unfortunately I can't remember exactly what maps I had the same problem on, though I think one of them was Ormond.

    In my past week of play, this issue has happened three times I believe.

    Unfortunately I've played other matches since then, but if I load up a custom match with bots to recreate the problem, will those logs still be useful to you? Because I can do that if so.

    Thank you so much for the loadout info!

    Unfortunately, the logs need to be sent from after your public match with the issue in question.

    But, if its encountered again (with any killer, not just Myers), please feel free to update with the Game Log!
