The Cenobite's Info[]

K25 charSelect portrait

The Cenobite

Pinhead is an explorer in the further regions of experience, indulging in the limitless thrill of pleasure and pain. When the puzzle box known as the Lament Configuration—a key to another dimension—was found in The Entity’s realm, it was only a matter of time before it fell into curious hands. Once opened, he arrived. What came next was sweet suffering that spilled over the realm.

The Cenobite's Power[]

IconPowers summonsOfPain

"An extradimensional gateway that leads to pleasure and pain so great it will tear your soul apart."

Press the Power button to conjure a Gateway up to 16 metres away in front of The Cenobite.
Release the Power button to open the Gateway and possess it.

Press the Attack button while possessing the Gateway to summon forth a guided Possessed Control under your control.

Hitting a Survivor with the Possessed Chain causes the following effects:

  • Binds the Survivor with 3 Chains.
  • Reduces their Movement speed:
    • 1.13 m/s with 3 Chains.
    • 1.695 m/s with 2 Chains.
    • 2.26 m/s with 1 Chain.
  • Causes them to suffer from the IncapacitatedIconStatusEffects incapacitatedIconStatusEffects incapacitatedIconStatusEffects incapacitated Status Effect.
  • Suppresses their ability to run.
  • Blocks the Exit GatesIconHelp exitGatesIconHelp exitGatesIconHelp exitGates.
    • This effect lingers for 5 seconds after all Chains are removed.

Bound Survivors can perform the Break Free interaction to remove one Chain at a time, each taking 1 second.

Chains are broken upon colliding with the environment, which will spawn a replacement Chain that will attempt to bind the Survivor again.
Chains are also broken when colliding with other Players, but this will not spawn a replacement Chain.

The Lament ConfigurationIconItems lamentConfigurationIconItems lamentConfigurationIconItems lamentConfiguration spawns in a random location in the environment at the start of the Trial and slowly charges a Chain Hunt

The AuraIconHelp aurasIconHelp aurasIconHelp auras of the Lament Configuration is revealed to Survivors in white at all times and changes to yellow during an active Chain Hunt.

Any Survivor can pick up the Lament Configuration to prevent it from continuing charging a Chain Hunt or ending an on-going one, but not without suffering from the following effects:

  • Causes the Survivor to suffer from a permanent ObliviousIconStatusEffects obliviousIconStatusEffects obliviousIconStatusEffects oblivious Status Effect.
  • Causes all of their ambient sounds to be replaced with a haunting tune.
  • Triggers a Chain Hunt targetting only them.

The Lament Configuration cannot be dropped, demanding to be solved to remove it from their possession.
If they are attacked by The Cenobite, it is dropped from their grasp and respawns after 30 seconds.

When left to its own devices, the Lament Configuration charges a Chain Hunt over the course of 90 seconds.

During a Chain Hunt, Survivors are repeatedly targetted by Chains spawning from nearby Gateways, which attempt to bind them until 3 Chains are attached to them.
This process continues indefinitely until a Survivor picks up the Lament Configuration.

If The Cenobite picks it up from the ground himself, he instantly starts a Chain Hunt in addition to the following effects:

  • Causes all Survivors to be bound by 3 Chains.
  • Causes all Survivors to scream and reveal their location for 3 seconds.
  • Causes the Lament Configuration to respawn after 10 seconds.

If the condition of the Last Survivor Standing is met, Chain Hunts will still activate, but not spawn any Chains, leaving the Last Survivor Standing untouched.

Solving the Lament Configuration takes 6 seconds to complete:

  • Triggers Killer Instinct.
  • Causes it to disappear and respawn in a random location after 45 seconds upon success.

While a Survivor is solving the Lament Configuration, The Cenobite is granted the ability to teleport to within 10 to 12 metres of their location.

  • Interrupts the Solving process and briefly binds the Survivor in place with Chains shooting from the Lament Configuration.
