Behaviour took it upon themselves to measure out a distance of time between April 27 and August 5, 2023, and players on the opposite end of the Trail have been running a varied selection of Perks to make sure that nobody can escape. While some of the Perks on this list may not be surprising in the slightest, there are a few choices that you may need to add to your arsenal shortly;

  • Jolt
  • Sloppy Butcher
  • Scourge Hook: Pain Resonance
  • Pop Goes The Weasel
  • Barbecue & Chili
  • Lethal Pursuer
  • Corrupt Intervention
  • Nowhere To Hide
  • Save The Best For Last
  • Hex: No One Escapes Death

With continuous changes coming with every patch, it’s hard to say if these Perks will stay in their respective spots. Now that Sadako has been reworked and has become more ruthless than ever, there is a good chance that we may see more perks related to her skillset making their way onto this list the next time around.

It’s hard to say right now, but thanks to her impressive set of perks, we may start seeing more of her while trying to escape our Trails.
