      Solo Play only so far. i do not see this being something I will go for as its very situational. Also I could spend 20 pointd to max it out or I can easily spend those points on things that will consistently help me

      • If you have a watch and a friend does not. It doesn't matter who created the game. The main thing is that the one who does not have a watch starts a dialogue. The second player's watch will not be lost.

          About a week ago I got this trait, I had the pocketwatch on me and my friend didn't. I found Brabus on adventure mode, we both enter at the same time. He addresses me because I have the watch. I refuse to give it to him and then he says one of us should kill the other. I kill my friend and then I get the trait, that's all. This wiki says that you need to not have the watch but that doesn't seem to be the case. Need confirmation

            I had the watch and was playing with a random. I entered fog and gave Brabus the watch. Then he started talking to the random and told us to fight. I killed him but the little***** had undying mod and then ran and hid until the timer expired. So neither of us got the trait. Ugh.

              So, once you got the Pocket Watch, you have to re roll till you find this damn dungeon two times, one to give him the Watch and another with coop to trigger the event?

                I've asked in a Steam community post about this trait. Someone replied saying it is labeled as an "event trait", therefore only obtainable with Brabus event. I'm taking it with a grain of salt and so should you, but looking at the comments I'm pretty sure it's true.

                    Fun fact you can kick random people who join you when it says kill your friends to get this trait as well

                        How to get: Brabus encounter, the first player entering the fog must NOT have the pocket watch, then it's last man standing against your allies or brabus fight if you let the timer expire. Only the winner takes it. Ruined way too many peoples days.

                          Feels like I'm going to have to call bs on the back shotting, unless there's unknown technicalities. Been in Hunter's Hideout for hours forcing the Hollows jump attack and circling them to kill them from behind. Still no trait, never counted how many, but have gained 22 trait points in the process.

                            Is this either/or Win the faceoff by killing an ally in co-op after talking to Brabus Kill X amount of enemies from behind. Headshots with sniper rifle works well. or do you have to do both?
