Cenobite's Info

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.

Killer Power - Cenobite: Summons of Pain

SUMMONS OF PAIN: Atl Hud PB CreateGateway.png
Press the Power button to create a gateway and release the button to open it.
Once opened, tap the Ability button to summon forth a possessed Chain under your control.

Possessed Chain: Atl Hud AB SummonChain.png
Direct the Possessed Chain into a Survivor to bind them with a regular Chain.

A Survivor bound by a Chain is unable to sprint, suffers from the Incapacitated IconStatusEffects incapacitated.png Status Effect, and cannot leave through the Exit Gate IconHelp exitGates.png .
Their Movement speed will decrease further as they are hit with a second and a third Chain.

Any solid object (including Characters) between the Gateway and the chained Survivor will immediately break the Possessed Chain.

Breaking Chains: Atl Hud Icon BreakChains.png
Survivors can perform the Break Free action to escape.

If The Cenobite walks through Chains, they will break immediately.

Chains broken via the environment or The Cenobite will spawn an additional Chain aimed at the survivor.

Lament Configuration: Icons Hud Icon Solve.png
If left alone, the Lament Configuration eventually initiates a Chain Hunt by summoning Chains to pursue Survivors.
The Chain Hunt ends when a Survivor picks up the Lament Configuration.

Survivors can see the Aura IconHelp auras.png of the Lament Configuration, which is either white (idle) or yellow (Chain Hunt)

A Survivor carrying the Lament Configuration suffers from the Oblivious IconStatusEffects oblivious.png Status Effect and Chains will occasionally be summoned to attack them.
The Survivor must solve the Lament Configuration to remove it from their possession.

When The Cenobite picks up the Lament Configuration, a Chain Hunt is immediately activated.
Additionally, all Survivors are instantly bound by Chains, causing them to scream and reveal their locations.

The Lament Configuration will spawn in a new location after The Cenobite or a Survivor has used it.

Teleport: Atl Hud AB Teleport.png
Whenever the Survivor carrying the Lament Configuration is solving it, The Cenobite is notified of their location and can choose to teleport to it.

Cenobites's Perks

If there is at least one Dull Totem IconHelpLoading totem.png remaining in the Trial Grounds, Hex: Plaything activates on a random Totem each time a Survivor is hooked for the first time:

  • The hooked Survivor suffers from the Cursed IconStatusEffects cursed.png and Oblivious IconStatusEffects oblivious.png Status Effects until Hex: Plaything is cleansed.
  • For the first 90 seconds, only the Cursed Survivor is able to cleanse the Hex Totem.
  • The Aura IconHelp auras.png of Hex: Plaything's Hex Totem is revealed to the Cursed Survivor within 24/20/16 metres.

The Hex effects persist as long as the related Hex Totem IconHelpLoading totem.png is standing.

"We came. Now you must come with us. Taste our pleasure." — Pinhead

Each time a Survivor is unhooked from a Scourge Hook, the following effects apply:

  • The Survivor suffers from the Haemorrhage IconStatusEffects bleeding.png and Mangled IconStatusEffects mangled.png Status Effects until healed.
  • Upon being healed, the Survivor suffers from a 7/8/9 % Action Speed penalty to Healing and Repairing until they are injured again.
