Change Log

Patch 2.5.0

  • Change: updated Bamboozle's in-game description to indicate that vaulting Pallets with Bamboozle equipped will not trigger the Entity-Blocker.
    Survivors can continue to vault the dropped Pallet indefinitely.
    • This addition was motivated by the introduction of The LegionIconHelpLoading legionIconHelpLoading legionIconHelpLoading legion in Patch 2.4.0, as they were the first Killer to even be able to vault Pallets, albeit only when using their Power. Nowadays, this also applies to The MastermindIconHelpLoading mastermindIconHelpLoading mastermindIconHelpLoading mastermind.

Reverse Bamboozle

  • Since Bamboozle blocks a Survivor's ability to vault a Window, and one of the Twisted Skills available to Survivors during the Twisted Masquerade 2023 Event did the same to Killers, that skill was internally referred to as "Reverse Bamboozle".


  • Bamboozle stacks with all Unlockables that increase Vaulting speed.
  • Bamboozle only applies its effects to vaulting Windows and does not work on vaulting Pallets.
  • Bamboozle does not increase the Action speed when a Killer uses their Power to vault a Window.
    • This specifically applies to The LegionIconHelpLoading legionIconHelpLoading legionIconHelpLoading legion performing Feral Vaults and The MastermindIconHelpLoading mastermindIconHelpLoading mastermindIconHelpLoading mastermind using Virulent Bound to bound over them.
      If either Killer uses their Power, they will always do it at the action's default speed.
    • This does not apply to The ShapeIconHelpLoading shapeIconHelpLoading shapeIconHelpLoading shape, as he does not use his Power to vault Windows, despite receiving an Action speed boost while in Evil Within III.
  • Originally, Bamboozle would increase The Legion's Vaulting speed for Feral Vaults, but this behaviour was ultimately disabled with the introduction of The Mastermind in Patch 6.2.0.
    • Ensuing Patches reactivated the behaviour at semi-random intervals, which was confirmed by Community Moderator Amanda to be an unintended effect, leading to its definitive removal in Patch 6.4.0.
