What is the Dramatic Mask in Lethal Company

The Dramatic Mask item in Lethal Company is a lootable item that can be found on the ground. Just like other items, it has a selling value. It can be worth picking up since you want to sell it for scrap. However, it’s a double-edged sword. Similar to some other lootable items (Hairdryer, Laser Pointer, Remote, and more), you can interact with it. There is a Comedy and a Tragedy mask, but they work in exactly the same way.

In the case of the Mask, interacting places it over your face. When doing that, either nothing will happen, or you will get possessed and die. There’s about 20% to get possessed after every five seconds you’re holding the mask next to your face. To make things worse, if you get possessed and die, your body will be haunted and chase your remaining teammates. Thus, the mask is an extremely dangerous item overall.

To make things worse, even if you’re not holding the mask next to your face, there’s a small chance of getting possessed if you’re next to it. So, what should you do with it?

What to do with the Dramatic Mask?

If you find the Dramatic Mask in Lethal Company, the first thing to do is quickly take it outside. Leave it a few steps away from the exit, in a location where nobody passes by. This way, there’s no risk of getting possessed during the run (unless you get possessed during the few seconds that you’re transferring it).

Then, when you’re ready to leave the moon and after transferring all scrap to your ship, you have to make a decision: do you need the few extra scraps for the mask? If you’re feeling adventurous and need the extra scrap, get ready to transfer it quickly and have a player ready to start the ship once you get it. This will minimize the chances of getting possessed.

However, I would recommend leaving the mask in a corner of the building and avoiding going there completely. It’s usually not worth much (~50 scrap) to justify the risk.

To wrap this up, the Dramatic Mask item in Lethal Company is a new addition that can possess the player holding it. If the player gets possessed, their body will try to kill all other players on the team and possess them in turn. If you aren’t desperate for some extra money, I would recommend avoiding the mask completely. Don’t go near it, and you’ll be safe.
