New Perk: Superior Anatomy

When a survivor performs a fast vault within 8 meters of you, this perk activates. The next time you vault a window, your vaulting speed is increased by 30%/35%/40%. This perk deactivates after vaulting a window. This perk has a 30 seconds cool-down.

New Perk: Awakened Awareness

When carrying a survivor, you can see the aura of other survivors within 16/18/20 meters of your position. Auras revealed this way linger for 2 seconds after you stop carrying the survivor.

New Perk: Terminus

When exit gates are powered, this perk activates. While the perk is active, injured, downed and hooked survivors are inflicted with the broken status effect until exit gates are open. When exit gates are open, survivors will stay broken for an additional 20/25/30 seconds.

Virulent Bond

The Mastermind can barrel forward, infecting Survivors with the Uroboros virus or you can leap over obstacles like windows and pallets. If you hit a survivor, you pick them up and are able to toss them. If they hit another object, they are injured and infected. If you hit another survivor, you can injure the other survivor as well, But you can't down an injured survivor with the actual throw. If you use the Bond on a fully infected survivor, if you hit them, you'll immediately pick them up instead of throwing them.
