Hey everyone,

So this is a shortlist of what I've been reading from various posts on the forum gesturing towards some kind of "hard mode". Disclaimer -- not all of these ideas are mine. If you recognize an idea that you pitched elsewhere then please don't hesitate to say it! Long story short, I think these tweaks would definitely bring back the immersion of survival horror to the game and would give experienced counselors a challenge too. Without further ado . . .

- No perks for counselors
- No combat stance for counselors
- Vision drain / stamina drain very pronounced when near Jason
- Jason can pick up and carry around severed limbs / heads (cosmetic)
- No shift for Jason (morph is permitted)
- Jason does not appear on mini-map
- Jason can grab counselors through windows
- Match time - 45 minutes max
- Jason can toss furniture aside (whereupon it becomes a moveable asset for all)
- Red underwater shadow only visible to person playing Jason
- Jason much less likely to be stunned by counselor
- Jason has increased stalk duration
- Jason can unlock doors from inside

- No DLC costumes / emotes for counselors
- A downed Jason can press E if a counselor is idling over them, grabbing their leg to crush it and wound them
- Fewer pocket knives on map
- Max 2 shotguns (1 on smaller maps) but shotguns have 4 rounds to use
- Shotguns can "break" (i.e., get jammed and become inoperable) needing to be manually dropped by counselor


If you have any other suggestions in the same vein then post them.

I'm curious to see if any of you have some more suggestions for a "hardcore mode" to F13?

Have you wished the game included any other aspect to make it more immersive and rewarding for both Jason and counselor?

For counselors

1. No cops 

2. Only one method of escape

3.  No radio or white bubbles in the minimap. Communication and teamwork is essential.

4. No music

5. Only one type of stun weapon is available in your inventory.

6. Med spray takes a couple seconds longer. 

7. Jumping out of second story windows is instant death no matter how much health you have.

8. If Jason crashes the car three times, it’s destroyed

On Hardcore mode I would like to see:

1. Jason won't be seen underwater for counselors.

2. Jason can close doors.

3. Jason can grab an counselor while on the ground/floor after have being knocked down.

4. Counselors will fall down on the ground if they are tripping.
