FEATURES & CONTENT
- Content – Added a new option for player reporting in the Tally (Exploit).

- Feature – Added a new score event: Safe Hook Rescue. The scoring event triggers after a Survivor has been unhooked and not downed for 10 seconds. The Survivor that performed the hook rescue gains the points. This score event helps clarify if / when a safe hook rescue has occurred (for the purposes of Emblem: Benevolent, and new perk, Deliverance).
- Feature – Added a new status effect for Survivors: Broken. Survivors afflicted with the Broken status effect may not be healed past the injured health state for the duration (similar to the No Mither effect). This status is shown to other players on the character portraits in the HUD. The Broken status effect is applied to Survivors when they successfully use Deliverance to unhook themselves.
