Overview[edit | edit source]
Chairs have static spawns in every trial, so their location never changes.
Chair Mechanics[edit | edit source]
Tying[edit | edit source]
When in proximity to a chair that hasn't been dismantled or sent away from an prior elimination/launch, the Hunter carrying a Survivor is given the opportunity to chair that Survivor, placing them onto the chair and tying them to it securely.
Chair Stages[edit | edit source]
For Survivors, Chairs have three different stages. Stages 1 and 2 each have a duration of 45 seconds:
|Chair Stage||Health Bar||Explanation|
|1||100-51%||A Survivor being tied to a chair for the first time will enter Stage One.
A Survivor in Stage One can be rescued by another Survivor. Once the Health Bar drops to 50%, the Survivor will enter Stage Two.
|2||50-1%||A Survivor being tied to the chair a second time, required that they were rescued before reaching 50% health, will enter Stage Two.
A Survivor in Stage Two, also known as the "Middle Phase", can still be rescued by another Survivor, but can only be saved one more time. Once the Health Bar drops to 0%, they will enter Stage Three.
|3||0%||A Survivor being chaired a third time, required that they were rescued before reaching 0% health, will enter Stage Three.
This also happens to the last living Survivor, no matter if it's just the first or second chair. A Survivor in Stage Three gets sent back to the Manor, eliminated from the trial.
Rescuing[edit | edit source]
Survivors can rescue teammates strapped to chairs, putting them back onto their feet and in the injured state. There are several mechanics that augment or are augmented by this interaction:
Dismantling[edit | edit source]
Survivors with a toolkit equipped have the opportunity to walk up to a Chair and dismantle it, breaking it temporary. Hunters are now able to repair it before placing survivors onto it without bringing the trait "Abnormal". Survivors earn 250 points in the "Bravery" category for successfully dismantling a chair. If a chair is broken, it will look the part, crooked and shooting sparks out, and Hunters will not be able to place Survivors onto it.
The only chairs that cannot be dismantled would be the set of four in the Basement.
Basement Chairs[edit | edit source]
The Basement Chairs are a unique set of four rocket chairs located in the Basement. They can't be dismantled, but will still be lost after eliminating a survivor with it. This ensures that the Hunter will always have an opportunity somewhere on the Map to eliminate a Survivor with a Chair. Instead of launching upwards, the Basement Chairs go underground.

Hunters[edit | edit source]
- Panic will reduce all survivors' decoding, healing, and destroying speeds by 3% when a survivor is injured, incapacitated, or placed on a Rocket Chair. This effect can stack.

Trivia[edit | edit source]
- The Mini Hammer accessory for the Gardener adds a special effect whilst dismantling a Rocket Chair.
- Rocket Chairs were previously nooses that force them onto their knees. When the timer ran out, they would be hanged and killed.
