Lethal Company – Masks/Masked Guide

Lethal Company Mask Masked

The masks are a brand new item found in Lethal Company, which have the chance of turning you into an enemy.

The latest update added the tragedy and comedy masks, which are iconic pieces reminiscent of ancient Greek theatre.

Both masks can be picked up and sold, but it’s recommended that you don’t hold on to them for too long.

There is a chance that once every five seconds a player will be possessed by the mask they are holding, becoming a Masked enemy.

The Masked enemy looks exactly like a regular player, but wearing one of the two masks. Their behavior also changes, as they now walk holding both arms forward.

The masked enemies have three different behaviors, which change depending on what actions the players are taking.

In a neutral state, the Masked will simply roam around, sprinting at random while looking for a player. They are attracted to sound, and will move towards anything that makes noise to investigate.

In pursuit mode, the Masked will target one employee and maintain eye contact for a brief period of time. After that, it will immediately start walking towards them, with a random chance of sprinting.

Masked enemies in pursuit mode can change targets if they lose whoever they are pursuing, so it’s best to always know who the Masked is after. The Masked will also leave the building once all players are outside, now focused on boarding the ship.

The last behavior the Masked possesses is the ambush state, in which it will board the ship and crouch in a corner, waiting for an employee to come close.

Once the masked manages to reach an employee, it will grab them and vomit blood on their face, turning that person into another Masked enemy.

It’s worth noting that Masked enemies can also spawn naturally, without anyone having grabbed a mask. They can be interrupted with the zap gun and can be easily killed with a shovel, as they don’t have a lot of health.

Lethal Company is available on Microsoft Windows (through Steam’s Early Access).
