Gameplay Mechanics[]

During the Twisted Masquerade, all Trials spawned the Crown PillarIconHelp crownPillar5AIconHelp crownPillar5AIconHelp crownPillar5A with an Invitation Scroll.

Collecting the Invitation Scrolls provided Players with Tokens towards new special abilities: the Twisted Skills (these were slightly different to their 2024 counterpart):

Twisted Skills[]

Collecting an Invitation Scroll gave the Player +1 Token towards their Twisted Skills, special abilities that could be used at the Player's discretion while being in an active Chase.

The number of available Tokens was indicated by comet-like fireballs circling the Character's torso, as well as two golden slashes in the top left corner of the screen from the Killer's POV.
Players could store a maximum of 2 Tokens.

Players also passively gained +1 Token for every 20 seconds spent in a Chase.
This applied to both the chasing Killer and the chased Survivor.

Twisted Skills were disabled during the Endgame CollapseIconHelp endGameIconHelp endGameIconHelp endGame.

Survivor Twisted Skills[]

  • Spawn a Vault Blocker on the next Vault location you vault over that blocks the Killer from vaulting after you.
  • Spawn a Fragile Pallet (a.k.a. "Party Pallet") that will still stun the Killer, but break immediately upon use.

Killer Twisted Skills[]

  • Remote-destroy nearby dropped Pallets or Breakable Walls.
  • Gain a temporary EnduranceIconStatusEffects enduranceSurvivorIconStatusEffects enduranceSurvivorIconStatusEffects enduranceSurvivor Status Effect which reduces all Stun durations by -75 %.
