Event Mechanics[]

Void Energy[]

The ultimate goal of the Event Mechanics is for Killers and Survivor to collect Void Energy.

Void Energy can be gained in three different ways:

  • Repairing an Event Generator:
    • Repairing awards 3 Void Energy every 9 seconds.
    • A maximum of 75 Void Energy can be obtained from repairing Generators.
  • Hooking a Survivor on an Event Hook:
    • Hooking awards 5 Void Energy per Hook.
    • A maximum of 15 Void Energy from hooking Survivors.
  • Destroying a PumpkinIconHelp pumpkinIconHelp pumpkinIconHelp pumpkin:
    • Destroying a Treat Pumpkin awards 1 Void Energy
    • Destroying a Neutral Pumpkin awards 2 Void Energy
    • Destroying a Trick Pumpkin awards 3 Void Energy

Void Energy can be transferred between the Survivor and the Killer in two different ways:

  • Stunning the Killer:
    • Stunning transfers 3 Void Energy from the Killer to the Survivor that stunned them.
  • Downing Survivors:
    • Downing transfers 3 Void Energy to the Killer from the Survivor they downed.

Unstable Rifts[]


The Aura of an Unstable Rift

Players can hold a maximum of 15 Void Energy at a time, after which they will no longer gain any additional Void Energy and see the Aura of a nearby Unstable Rift.
At this point, Players are encouraged to bank their Void Energy at an Unstable Rift, after which they can once again gain new Void Energy from the aforementioned interactions.

This process is repeatable until a maximum of 30 Void Energy is banked into Unstable Rifts.

As a Killer, when the Trial ends, any Void Energy not yet deposited into an Unstable Rift would automatically be accounted for and deposited into the Sky Rift.

As a Survivor, the same would be true upon escaping the Trial.
If a Survivor dies, however, that energy would be lost.

Sky Rift[]

Each Map featured a so-called "Sky Rift", a large Rift Portal up in the sky of the Map, akin to the one shown in the main Lobby during the Event, only a lot smaller.
The Sky Rift was purely decorative in nature and had no other effect than to, lore-wise, collect any remaining Void Energy Players were holding in their inventory and had not managed to deposit into Unstable Rifts before escaping the Trial (Survivor) or ending it (Killer).

Unlocking Cosmetics[]

When a Player manages to transfer 30 Void Energy into Unstable Rifts, they trigger the Rift Satisfied Score Event, which grants them 10,000 Bloodpoints, and they are also granted the HasteIconStatusEffects hasteIconStatusEffects hasteIconStatusEffects haste Status Effect for 15 seconds.
The strength of the Status Effect has a chance of 75 % to be +5 % Movement speed or a chance of 25 % to be +10 % Movement speed

Additionally, Players will be rewarded with a random piece from the 12 Event Cosmetics after the Trial concludes.

Event Rewards[]
