Change Log

Patch 2.5.0

  • Nerf: reduced the reveal time to 3 seconds.

Patch 3.2.0 (undocumented)

  • Buff: increased the reveal time back to 4 seconds


Tactic

  • Iron Maiden has good synergy with The Huntress IconHelpLoading huntress.png as it speeds up the animation of taking Hatchets from Lockers.
  • Iron Maiden has good synergy with The Doctor since lockers are a good counter to his static field and shock therapy.
  • Iron Maiden may be useful in case of Survivors using Head On IconPerks headOn.png, since it penalises the Survivor, should they miss the stun window and rush into the open.


Trivia

  • An Iron Maiden was a supposedly medieval torture device, that would stab the victim with dozens of metal spikes when its doors were closed. Its practical usage is a myth originating in the 19th century.
