The Trapper[edit | edit source]
Bear Trap[edit | edit source]
A large foothold trap made of steel.
The Bear Trap is The Trapper's main Power and also his secondary weapon: Bear Traps are found lying around the map. They can be picked up and set down mostly anywhere, though not below Hooks. Traps are not armed until picked up and placed. The Trapper starts the game with a single trap in his hands, and can only carry one at once unless with the use of Add-ons.
After pressing alternate attack (default: M2), The Trapper bends down and sets the Trap, looking downwards, which allows nearby Survivors to walk around him unseen. If a Survivor walks over an armed Bear Trap, it will spring and catch one of their legs, whereupon they will be trapped in place until either they manage to free themselves or get freed by another Survivor or are either downed or picked up by The Trapper and hoisted onto his shoulder. A trapped Survivor produces a noise indicator, showing The Trapper and the other Survivors the exact location of the trapped Survivor until they are freed from it.
Survivors can disarm the Bear Trap by walking up to it and pressing the primary action key (default: M1). They need to stand still for the prompt to appear. Disarming the Trap will usually take 2.5 seconds.
- Set Bear Traps to immobilise and injure trapped Survivors.
- Starts match with 1 Bear Trap.
- 5 Bear Traps are available randomly placed throughout the Map.
The Wraith[edit | edit source]
Wailing Bell[edit | edit source]
A heavy cast iron bell imbued with ancient powers.
The Wailing Bell is The Wraith's main Power: the Wailing Bell holds ancient powers, both with good and bad consequences. It allows its user to enter and walk the spirit world when rung. When cloaked, The Wraith has no Terror Radius, meaning that Survivors do not hear a heartbeat, and The Wraith's Stain is also gone. The Wraith walks moderately faster when cloaked, making up for his inability to interact while in this state. The sound of the Bell is very loud, but can only be heard at a close distance to The Wraith. The accompanying *wooosh* sound, indicating a full uncloak or cloak, is heard globally. The volume of the Bell can be reduced with Add-ons.
Whilst cloaked, The Wraith cannot perform any interactions with the "physical world" and has to uncloak first. It takes about 2 seconds to cloak and uncloak without the use of Add-ons, and during this time, The Wraith's movement speed is dramatically reduced.
Walking the spirit world has one big drawback: it makes The Wraith very vulnerable to Flashlights triggering the Lightburn mechanic unless he shields himself with obstacles or uses "Blind Warrior" Add-ons.
- Charge action that grants near total invisibility.
- Faster movement speed when cloaked.
- Cannot attack or interact while cloaked.
The Hillbilly[edit | edit source]
Chainsaw[edit | edit source]
A hulking and deadly chainsaw of terrifying strength. Grinds through flesh, bone and soul.
The Chainsaw is The Hillbilly's main Power and also his secondary weapon: Once revved up, it sends its user into a violent frenzy, running at high speed across the map. The noise can be heard across the whole map. It can also be muffled with the use of Add-ons. It takes 2.5 seconds to charge the Chainsaw and is done by pressing alternate attack (default: M2).
Whilst revving up the Chainsaw, The Hillbilly's movement speed is reduced to the same speed as a running Survivor and he will still gain Bloodlust.
- Break into a Chainsaw Sprint on charge activation.
- Limited steering capabilities while sprinting.
- Automatically puts Survivors into the Dying State on a successful hit.
The Nurse[edit | edit source]
Spencer's Last Breath[edit | edit source]
Spencer's Last Breath is The Nurse's main Power: channelling its energy allows the Nurse to pierce and jump through the spirit world in a Blink multiple times in a row. Doing so leaves her in a state of fatigue as blinking is quite painful to her, hence also why she shrieks after each Blink.
Holding alternate attack (default: M2) will charge up a Blink, the range depending on how long you charge the Blink, with the maximum range reached when she clenches her fist and exhales and the number of orbs floating in her hand indicating the remaining Blinks.
After blinking, there is a short period of a little over a second (called the "Chainblink Window") in which The Nurse can either attack or Blink again (if possible), after which she will enter the fatigue or if the Chainblink Window closes. By default, The Nurse has 1 Chainblink. The fatigue will stun The Nurse and prevent her from interacting until she leaves the fatigue. The stun duration scales with the number of Blinks used.
The Nurse can chain multiple blinks together before attacking. To prevent herself from being stunned even longer, the Nurse can elect to not use her extra Blinks, by simply letting the Chainblink window run out while charging a Chainblink. She can also decide to forgo an attack, as attacking will delay the onset of the stun by about 1.5-2 seconds and might not the strategically best thing to do under certain circumstances.
Akin to The Wraith, The Nurse too is vulnerable to Flashlights triggering the Lightburn mechanic thanks to her ability to interact with the spirit world and unlike him, can't shield herself from its drawbacks.
- Blink up to 20 metres on charge activation.
- Can blink twice before becoming fatigued.
- Can perform a Lethal Blink Attack after blinking.
The Shape[edit | edit source]
Evil Within[edit | edit source]
The darkness inside feeds his determination to take the life of his prey.
Evil Within is The Shape's main Power: activating Evil Within allows him to see his prey clearly and build up evil by stalking them.
Evil Within is a Tier-based Power and comes with 3 Tiers, each having it's own advantages and disadvantages:
- Evil Within I:
- Tremendously decreased Terror Radius.
- Grants immunity to detection Perks.
- Slightly decreased Movement Speed.
- Slightly decreased Lunge Range.
- Evil Within II:
- Moderately decreased Terror Radius.
- Normal Movement Speed.
- Normal Lunge Range.
- Evil Within III:

- Attacks do double damage, putting Survivors into dying state upon hit.
- Lasts for 60 seconds without any Add-ons.
- Increased Vaulting Speed.

- Survivors' white highlights changes to red when they are maxed out with Evil Within.
The Hag[edit | edit source]
Blackened Catalyst[edit | edit source]
Source of The Hag's power, a blackened finger used as a catalyst for her terrible power.
The Blackened Catalyst is The Hag's main Power: she bends and shapes mud to her will. With simple ritualistic drawings, she creates deceitful duplicates of herself made from mud and decay which she can use for various effects.
Drawing a Phantasm Trap works very similar to setting down a Bear Trap. She can have up to 10 Traps at once distributed across the map, with each subsequently set Trap removing the oldest one.
Her Phantasm Traps also allow to instantly travel up to 32 metres but are vulnerable to Flashlights as they will burn a Phantasm Trap away and thus destroy it.
- Grants the ability to create and maintain 10 Phantasm Traps.
- Grants the ability to instantly travel to triggered Phantasms when within 32 metres of range.
- Survivors who enter the trap area trigger a Phantasm of The Hag to appear and disorient the Survivor.
The Doctor[edit | edit source]
Carter's Spark[edit | edit source]
Is it a gift, or a curse?
Carter's Spark is The Doctor's main Power: The Entity has ignited a corrupted and inexhaustible spark in his heart, which allows him to generate electro-convulsive power at will.
His insidious treatment corrupts the minds of those it touches. Victims shocked by the corrupt spark begin to lose their grip on reality and, with repeated exposure, inevitably succumb to madness.
- Switch Stance: Punishment mode is used to injure Survivors. Treatment mode grants the abilities Static Field and Shock Therapy.
- Static Field: While in Treatment mode, generate a Static Field equal to your Terror Radius which increases Survivors' Madness based on proximity to the Doctor.
- Shock Therapy: Treatment mode grants the ability to charge and release a Shock Therapy attack that greatly increases Survivors' Madness.
- Madness Tier I:
- Causes Survivors to scream, revealing their position to The Doctor.
- Madness Tier II:
- All effects of Tier I.
- Causes Survivors to experience shared Doctor Hallucinations.
- Madness Tier III:
- All effects of Tier II.
- Shared Doctor Hallucinations intensify, allowing the Doctor to read their Auras.
- Survivors regularly scream, revealing their position to the Doctor via an Aura.
- Survivors cannot heal, repair, sabotage, search or cleanse until they Snap Out of It.
- More Afflictions are available with Add-ons.
The Huntress[edit | edit source]
Hunting Hatchets[edit | edit source]
A skill taught by her mother and mastered in the wild. The Huntress can throw Hatchets with deadly precision.'
Hunting Hatchets are The Huntress' main Power and also her secondary weapons: charging up her Hatchets allows her to throw them at great speed at fleeing Survivors or use them as ranged weapons to snipe Survivors from afar. The more she charges them, to faster they will travel through the air with a *ding* sound indicating a fully charged Hatchet.
- Start the trial with 5 Hatchets.
- Charge throw for maximum throwing speed.
- Can cancel Hatchet throw.
- Hatchets are consumed on use.
- Refill Hatchets at Lockers.
- The Huntress hums from 45-20 metres, her Terror Radius starts at 20 metres.
- Slightly decreased movement speed (110% | 4.4 m/s).
The Cannibal[edit | edit source]
Bubba's Chainsaw[edit | edit source]
Bubba's Chainsaw is The Cannibal's main Power and also his secondary weapon, very similar to the Hillbilly's Chainsaw : once the Chainsaw is revved up, The Cannibal enters a crazed attack mode where he swings his Chainsaw from side to side in a wide angle as he gains momentum, putting Survivors into the Dying State upon hit.
- Start a timed sweeping attack on activation.
- Can hit multiple targets in one Chainsaw charge.
- Running into an objects forces The Cannibal into a Tantrum, this attack damages anyone around him.
- Automatically puts victims in the dying state on a successful hit.
The Nightmare[edit | edit source]
Dream Demon[edit | edit source]
"You have nothing to worry about. This won't hurt one... little... bit." — Freddy Krueger
Dream Demon is The Nightmare's main Power: activating Dream Demon allows him to pull his victims into the Dream World and attack them.
Death won't accept him and thus he remains, a calamity, indisputable master of his victims' nightmares. Dream Demon allows The Nightmare to pull Survivors into the Dream World.
- Survivors who are awake do not see or hear The Nightmare.
- Once targeted by The Nightmare power, Survivors enter the Dream Transition for 7 seconds.
- During the Dream Transition they can see The Nightmare intermittently.
- When the Dream Transition lapses, the Survivor is pulled into the Dream World.
Once in the Dream World:
- Survivors' Auras are revealed to The Nightmare when they are outside of his Terror Radius.
- Survivors suffer an action speed penalty of 50 %.
- To exit the Dream World, Survivors can find other non-sleeping Survivors to perform a wake up action
- Some failed actions can wake up the Survivor.

Unused Powers[edit | edit source]
Detention[edit | edit source]
Detention is an unused Killer Power for an unknown Killer (potentially a Teacher). It is suspected to have been put into the game files alongside the Trapple and the Perk Underperform to fuel speculations about a new Killer back in August 2016.
