Tips[edit | edit source]

  • When playing as a Survivor, a basement save is much riskier than a normal save granted it is difficult to escape and to enter. There are various ways to counter this, for example:
    • Playing Priestess and creating a portal.
    • Sneaking in, baiting a hit, and then taking one after the rescue.
    • Bringing Tide Turner or other Talents that assist in rescues.
    • Using an item to stun the Hunter before getting the save.
    • Being wary of Hunter abilities.
    • Bringing multiple people for either a distraction or to take hits.
  • Whilst playing Survivor, be wary of the basement's location and try not to get downed near it. If you're kiting the hunter in its proximity, remain cautious and know when to move on.
    • It's especially important to note the basement's location when you're trying to dismantle chairs. Keep your teammates away from it at all costs, or actively inform them using Quick Messages or external means. You can send "The dungeon is here!" at the start of the game to signal the basement location (Before the dungeon spawns, as to not confuse your teammates.)
  • When playing Hunter, it may be wise to carry Survivors past available Rocket Chairs to put them in the Basement if the Basement is close enough.
  • Take note of what particular characters the Survivors chose to try and predict what play they are going to make.
  • As hunter, if you hit a survivor while falling down from a height, including the basement stairs, the stagger will override the hit recovery, allowing you to hit a survivor and quickly recover. Survivors receive a boost when getting hit.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Previously, the basement would've contained blood leading down the stairs. It would also have arms reaching through the metal grates on the floor, and eyeless survivors with Lucky Guy's likeness trapped in its cages.[1]
