Descriptions & Patch Notes

Big moments are vital, but you know that sometimes an understated read can be just as powerful.

Plot Twist activates when you are injured.

Press the ability button 2 while crouched and motionless to enter the dying state silently.

When using Plot Twist to enter the dying state: you leave no blood pools and you make no noise and you can fully recover from the dying state.

When you recover by yourself using Plot Twist, you are healed instantly and you gain 50% Haste for 2/3/4 seconds.

This perk deactivates if you recover by yourself by any means.

This perk re-activates when the exit gates are powered.

Haste increases Survivor movement speed.

“I think you'll find this shooting location… captivating.” –Pauline Stamper
