  • Buff: decreased the Stealth delay timer to 4/3/2 seconds.


Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Since The Pig IconHelpLoading pig.png was introduced into the Game, the Heartbeat now gradually fades away instead of being instantly gone after Insidious becomes active.
  • Insidious hides the Stain.
  • Insidious does not hide the Killer's Character model. The stealth part about the description comes from the fact of Survivors having a hard time locating the Killer without the Terror Radius.
    • This part is badly translated into many languages, sometimes even claiming that the Killer will turn invisible, which is a source of great confusion.
  • When Insidious is active, the Killer's vision is obscured by "Black Fog", that lasts until you move out of stealth.
    • This effect also activates when The Wraith IconHelpLoading wraith.png cloaks, The Pig IconHelpLoading pig.png crouches and when The Spirit IconHelpLoading spirit.png phase walks.
    • This "Black Fog" fades out over about 1.5-2 seconds after cancelling Insidious.
    • The Terror Radius turns back on over these 1.5-2 seconds in the same way that The Wraith's does while de-cloaking.
  • The Killer still makes breathing noises while under the effects of Insidious, which is a way for an attentive Survivor to notice their presence.
  • Using a Killer's Power will automatically cancel Insidious.
    • Moving your camera around, however, will not cancel Insidious.
  • Insidious does not affect Hums or Lullabies.
