Cards


Upgrade your phone to be able to spoof a call to a target Sleepwalker’s monitoring device. The sleepwalker will be distracted and listen to the pre-recorded voice message, allowing you to sneak by without being heard.

TO PRANK CALL A SLEEPWALKER: Get close enough to a Sleepwalker that you can maintain a clear line of sight. When you see the onscreen prompt, press R to send the prank call.

The Sleepwalker will eventually give up on the message and hang up. After that, it should regain its sensitive hearing.

When a Lucid receives a Prank Call, he or she will stop what they're doing and listen to the pre-recorded message. They won't be able to hear you as well, but they can still see you, so be careful!

Trivia

  • The voice on the Prank Call sounds similar to Bells' voice, implying that she was the one who came up with and recorded the Prank Call
  • This power used to be known as "Prank Call" before it was changed to better suit its abilities.
  • The 4th upgrade, L337 is in reference to Leetspeak, a form of internet language in which characters in words are replaced with symbols or numbers that look similar or represent the original alphabet character. The word itself, "leet" is derived from the word "elite".
