    • This effect lingers for an additional 20/25/30 seconds after the Exit Gates are open.


  • Terminus prevents Survivors using AdrenalineIconPerks adrenalineIconPerks adrenalineIconPerks adrenaline from becoming healed by its activation, but still allows it to grant the Movement Speed boost.
    • However, due to latency issues, it is possible for Terminus to activate too late to prevent Adrenaline's healing effect from the Survivor's POV.
  • The term "Terminus" was borrowed from Latin into English with the primary meaning of "end(-ing)" or "final point".
    As such, the name is likely a reference to when in the Trial it will activate.
