Everything turns to dust. It is as inescapable as the coming of the night.

3 seconds after injuring a SurvivorIconHelpLoading survivor.png by any means, Dissolution activates for 12/16/20 seconds:

  • While Dissolution is active, if a Survivor fast vaults over a PalletIconHelp pullDown.png while they are inside your Terror RadiusIconHelp terrorRadius.png, The EntityIconHelp entity.png will break the Pallet at the end of the vault, deactivating Dissolution.

  • Dissolution applies its effect after a Pallet is vaulted, not mid-way through.
    • This means that if a Survivor is interrupted during a fast vault and grabbed, the Pallet will not become destroyed.
  • Dissolution does not work while the Killer is Undetectable IconStatusEffects undetectable.png, which reduces the Terror Radius IconHelp terrorRadius.png to 0 metres.
  • Dissolution also activates when pulling a Survivor out of a Locker, that was hiding in it.
  • Dissolution also activates when grabbing a Survivor, as grabbing them is considered putting them into the Dying State IconHelp dying.png, applying damage.
