Since patch 6.0 the large black bubble that appears right after hooking a survivor overlaps killer aura while using perk "KINDRED" (and any other aura) making it impossible to see which direction killer is going.

After the patch:

This is by design, the hook bubble initially blocks all auras.

    Was hoping for the fix but it hasn't happened yet

    Wow, thanks for posting this. I sure thought something had changed with the killer aura.

    Still happening (6.1.1) The hook bubble is currently opaque when it should be transparent

    Still happening in 6.2.2. This thing has a massive impact on aura reading perks.

    This is known for a while now. I hope they fix that soon.

    It is annoying.

    Can we have an update on when this bug will be fixed? Thanks!

  • Can we please get an update on when this will be resolved since it's not being addressed in the current PTB? This is a frustrating bug.

    This is still broken in 6.3.0. The patch notes say this was fixed but auras are still blocked by the black bubble. Please provide an update on when/if this will ever be resolved. The first few moments of kindred being broken greatly impacts the usefulness of the perk.

    Can confirm, all platforms (6.3.0) Kindred is one of the best perks for solo Q survivors, this should have been fixed ages ago.

    It has been more than 3 months and this bug still exists. I can't think of any reason why it would be this difficult to be fixed... 👀

    Another patch and this is still broken. Please please please fix.

    Can we just have hook and gen bubbles removed already?

  • dakhnas

    Bug still exists :(

    Can confirmed the bug is still present.


    You can now see the hook aura through the bubble, but not the hooked survivor/killer/other survivors.

    Any update from BHVR on this?

    Still not fixed in 6.4 PTB Patch!

    Still bugged as of 2022-11-26

    Are y'all gonna fix this or? This has been "acknowledged" since July 2022. We're about to enter 2023. This bug is a big inconvenience.

    This just got worse as it now doesnt show the aura to the survivor with the perk at all. Even after the bubble is gone

  • BHVR are you purposefully nerfing Kindred without telling us?

  • Sanmer

    Latest bugfix has ruined kindred. Killer Aura doesn't show up at all now with the perk.

    In another black eye to soloQ, this perk is compeltely busted after the patch today. sigh.

    I'm fine with this as is. It still hurts campers but isn't quire as powerful when a Killer travels away from Hook. Directional callouts would probably take about as long as the Bubble in most scenarios anyway with regards to SoloQ vs. SWF.

  • Mockingjay_S451
    Mockingjay_S451 Member Posts: 393

    Yes, confirmed broken. Since patch you can not see the killer aura at all once a survivor is hooked. Even if they are standing right next to the hook after the horrible (not needed) black bubble goes away.

    Looks like we gotta wait a month or so for this simple issue to be fixed

    *Sigh*

    Still not fixed even after today's 6.4.3 that was focused on kindred issues...

  • ArcT

    It's patch 6.5.1 and this still hasn't been fixed.

  • poinepp
    poinepp Member Posts: 92

    well i sent a ticket about this issue and they said they did it on purpose as a way of suspending the situation (i dont get the point of this text btw) so hook bubbles got nerfed where they no longer show auras through it they now blocks auras and thats intended sadly

  • ArcT
    ArcT Member, Alpha Surveyor Posts: 48

    6.5.2 and still acknowledged but not fixed.

    It happens as killer with noise/gens bubble completed notifications too,so annoying when using perks like I'm all ears or barbecue.

    Make all notifications less graphics invasive please.

  • dakhnas
    dakhnas Member Posts: 16

    Still not fixed. I'm guessing devs don't care about this bug at this point

  • Leonardo1ita
    Leonardo1ita Member Posts: 2,157

    This is still bugged and the fix hasn't fixed the bug; as someone who always uses Kindred, when is it ever gonna be fixed BHVR?

  • ArcT
    ArcT Member, Alpha Surveyor Posts: 48

    6.6.0 and this bug is still present.

    As far as I'm aware this is something that is by design, that teh black bubble over rides the aura perks of both survivor and killer.

  • poinepp
    poinepp Member Posts: 92

    no, hook bubbles used to be see through for auras but something broke them with the patch 6.0.0 i dont get how such a bug still exist for almost a year...

  • Mandy
    Mandy Administrator, Dev, Community Manager Posts: 21,967

    It's currently not listed as a bug, but listed as by design - that's not to say it was always like that, but the decision was made that it should work in this manner.

  • poinepp
    poinepp Member Posts: 92

    i get that but when nobody wants such a nerfish thing to many aura related perks this makes no sense to be in the game i bet every player would rather it to be reverted back to its original stage where we could see auras through hook bubbles and if thats intended i am asking why it was necessery to make bubbles opaque?

  • Mimeoplasm

    I don't see how it can be by design when new perks are released to provide 2 seconds of Aura Reading in their description but the notification bubble lasts 5 seconds preventing you actually using that aura reading?! These are perks that have launched AFTER this bug began to show up so why even build them that way if it's completely impossible even with time extensions to gain that aura reading at all? I feel this is more a case of not owning up to a mistake and hand waving to get out of working on a fix otherwise update all your aura reading perks to include 5 seconds of bubble blockage bonus.

    What are you playing on? On Steam, it is PERFECTLY fine for me

  • poinepp

    i dont think you got it right, the problem is on all platforms. No aura is visible through the hook bubble this is the case.
