Vittorio Toscano’s Perks


Here are Vittorio Toscano’s three unique perks:

Potential Energy

After repairing Generators for a total of 12 uninterrupted seconds, press the Active Ability button to activate Potential Energy:

  • Continuing to repair the Generator will charge Potential Energy instead of progressing the Generator.
  • Converts 1.5% of repair progression into 1 token, up to a maximum of 20 Tokens.
  • Missing Skill Checks results in losing some Tokens.

While Potential Energy has at least 1 token, press the Active Ability button while repairing a Generator to instantly progress it by 1% per token, consuming all remaining Tokens and deactivating Potential Energy. In addition, potential Energy loses all TOkens and deactivates upon losing a Health State.


Succeeding a Great Skill Check while repairing a Generator reveals the Killer’s Aura to you for 4/5/6 seconds.

Quick Gambit

Increases the Repair speed of any other Survivor by 6/7/8% while you are being chased within 24 meters of the Generator they are currently repairing.

Vittorio Toscano Counters


Potential Energy can be countered by killer perks that make skill checks challenging to succeed because you lose tokens upon a failure. Standard Skill Check perks that Killers run are Hex: Huntress Lullaby, Overcharge, and Unnerving Presence.

Fogwise can be countered by any perk, power, or add-on that gives the Killer the Undetectable status effect, which blocks their Aura from being revealed to Survivors. Typical perks include Beast of Prey, Tinkerer, and Trail of Torment. Common Killer powers include Evil Within I (The Shape), Night Shroud (The Ghost Face), and the Wailing Bell (The Wraith). Examples of add-ons that provide the Undetectable status effect are Blighted Corruption, Iridescent Brick, and “Bad Man’s” Last Breath.

Quick Gambit can be countered by Killer perks that punish other nearby Survivors after you enter the dying state or are being carried by the Killer. Standard Killer perks include Infectious Fright, Jolt, and Starstruck. Nearby Survivors can be within a specific range of the Killer’s location or their Terror Radius.
