Limited Items

Limited Items are a special case, as not all of them are affected by Franklin's Demise.

Limited Items that are affected by Franklin's Demise:

Limited Items that are not affected by Franklin's Demise:

  • Pocket Mirror FulliconItems pocketMirror.gif (fragile state)
    • This is the Pocket Mirror Survivors receive from the White Glyph and must carry into the Basement.
      Due to its fragility, Survivors will drop this Item on any type of attack, regardless of whether Franklin's Demise could take effect or not.
  • VHS Tape FulliconItems vhsTape.png
    • The VHS Tape cannot be dropped by any means, it is stored in its own, separate Item slot.


Trivia

  • Franklin's Demise is a reference to Franklin Hardesty, a Character in The Texas Chainsaw Massacre franchise.
  • According to its filename, Franklin's Demise was originally to be called "Franklin's Loss".
  • Franklin's Demise will show a debuff indicator on the Survivor's HUD with a timer on it.
    With the Rework in Patch 5.0.0, this timer now corresponds to how many Charges the Item will have left after picking it up again (assuming it was initially dropped with full Charges).
  • Franklin's Demise forces Survivors to drop items that they cannot drop once acquired, such as the Lament Configuration FulliconItems lamentConfiguration.png.
