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 Huntress}} 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 Head On}}, since it penalises the Survivor, should they miss the stun window and rush into the open.
  • Iron Maiden has good synergy with The Cannibal since Survivors may use Lockers to force you to stop your Chainsaw charge.


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.
