A new update is out today for Friday the 13th: The Game, and it includes a ton of changes to the game in order to make it a more smooth experience for players. Besides the patch notes, Illfonic has also updated Tommy Jarvis and made him more of a hero.

In addition to the more minor fixes (which can be seen below), the game has added five new environmental kills to Jason’s arsenal. These kills will be available on any map and can be used by all variants of Jason. The full list of new environmental kills can be viewed below:

Stove Top

Boom Box

Kitchen Knife (Throat Slit)

Kitchen Knife (Stab)

Screw Driver
