Unlike Pallets, however, Survivors cannot interact with them in any way.

They can generally be found in a Map's Landmark structure, if available.

Breakable Walls take the same amount of time to break as PalletsIconHelp pullDownIconHelp pullDownIconHelp pullDown: 2.34 seconds.

Most Unlockables affecting the Pallet-Breaking speed also work on Breakable Walls.

Map Use[]

CHAPTER 15: Chains of Hate introduced the first Map featuring Breakable Walls, Dead Dawg Saloon.
