Trivia

  • Has its reduced Struggle Effect countered by Boil Over IconPerks boilOver.png.
  • Struggle Effects describe the Killer's involuntary side-to-side movement (also known as "strafing"), caused by the Survivor wiggling on the Killer's shoulder.
    • Iron Grasp decreases that effect, giving the Killer an easier time to counter it with their movement keys, allowing for a greater chance to reach a nearby Hook in nearly a straight line without much hindrance.
