As soon as a stealthy Killer starts to move again, thus cancelling Insidious, a loud sound cue titled "Stinger" plays to warn Survivors:


Trivia

  • Since the introduction of The Pig IconHelpLoading pig.png, the Terror Radius IconHelp terrorRadius.png gradually fades away instead of being instantly gone after Insidious becomes active.
  • The Killer still makes breathing noises while under the effect of Insidious, which is a way for attentive Survivors to still notice their presence.
  • Before Insidious was updated with the Undetectable IconStatusEffects undetectable.png Status Effect, the description mentioning stealth confused many Players and led to beliefs such as the Killer turning invisible, rather than just masking their Terror Radius and Stain.
    • Some languages even mistranslated the stealth to mean invisibility, further increasing the confusion.
  • Using a Killer's Power will automatically cancel Insidious.
    • However, moving your camera around, stalking Survivors as The Shape IconHelpLoading shape.png or The Ghost Face IconHelpLoading ghost.png or phase-walking as The Spirit IconHelpLoading spirit.png will not cancel Insidious.
  • Insidious does not affect Hums or Lullabies.
