Cast (in order of appearance)
I used to never use Jason’s Stalk ability, but once I played against my friend Rainskull, I realized that Stalk is one of the most powerful abilities in Friday The 13th: The Game.
Here are some tips on how to use Jason’s Stalk ability.
Tip #1 Use Stalk and then Morph to silently teleport to a location. Select your target and setup the kill.
Tip #2 If you’re already in Stalk mode, use Shift to rush a cabin and look for an opening where you can sneak in before counselors barricade the door.
Tip #3 Use Sense while you’re in Stalk mode to keep tabs on counselors. You only want to tap the Sense ability for a second or two. Do not hold it down and waste the juice. If you don’t see any white blips, but a cabin is glowing red when you use Sense, that means a counselor is hiding in a bed, a closet or just crouched and not moving.
Tip #4 Pay attention to your Stalk meter when using Shift. Stalk can be used up to 2-3 minutes if you’re standing still, but if you use Shift, you will burn through it within 40-45 seconds.
Tip #5 If you haven’t used Stalk yet and you know a counselor is nearby and they are already aware of your presence, Shift over to their cabin and then activate Stalk when you exit Shift. This way you don’t waste the ability.
Tip #6 Use Shift and Stalk to encircle your prey and jump scare any counselors who are trying to exit via window or door. It’s also a useful technique if you want to move quickly from one side of the cabin to the other and confuse counselors.
Tip #7 You don’t have to shift grab all the time. Sometimes it’s better to simply Shift ahead to the next cabin while you’re using Stalk and ambush the counselor.
Bonus tip: Kill the electricity to increase counselors’ fear levels and force them to use their flashlights. This way you’ll have an easier time keeping tabs on them.
