Texas Chain Saw Massacre: Best Sissy Build Guide

This guide talks about the best attribute, ability, and perk builds for Sissy in TCM.

Texas Chain Saw Massacre Sissy Build cover

Sissy is one of the killers in The Texas Chain Saw Massacre. Despite looking like she’s a bit more refined than the rest of her family, Sissy is just as psychotic as the rest of them. She uses her knowledge of concocting deadly poisons to inflict an excruciating death to her victims. Read ahead as we talk more about how to get the best build for Sissy in The Texas Chain Saw Massacre.

Best Sissy Attributes

Sissy is naturally good at Blood Harvesting, and coupled by her nimbleness, she can provide a good support by feeding Grandpa and getting him leveled up quickly. This puts time pressure towards the victims as they race against an inevitable detection.

Here are Sissy’s starting attributes:

  • Savagery: 10
  • Blood Harvesting: 38
  • Endurance: 23

Sissy’s edge over victims is her poison attack and her speed. It’s really not necessary to put any points on Savagery as you can still relentlessly hunt victims and let your poison slowly kill them. It’s best to max out Blood Harvesting for a full support build, or max out Endurance for an aggressive build.

Due to her speed, Sissy is best paired with Johnny or Cook, both of which could use a hands when chasing down victims.

Best Sissy Ability Modifiers

Sissy’s main ability is Bane which lets her blow clouds of poison in the paths of victims to block their paths, or lace their useful items. It can be further modified to become more useful depending on the play style.

  • Level 1 and 2
    • Increase Poison Duration: Increases the duration of poison by 12/13.5 seconds.
    • Increase Cloud Duration: Increase the duration of poison cloud by 50/55 seconds.
    • Create Poison Faster: Craft poison in 3/2 seconds.
  • Level 3
    • Poison Pickup Locations: Poison can be applied to bone scraps and toolboxes.
    • Toxic Cloud: Poison seeps into Victims’ wounds, making them lose health for a short period of time.
    • Poison Electronics: Poison can be applied to generators and car batteries.

Take note that you will need to level up Sissy’s ability to level 3 to be able to unlock all three slots for its modifiers. Also, same modifiers’ effects do not stack up and only the modifier placed on the higher level will take effect. For an effective Sissy trap build, go for these modifiers:

  • Level 1: Create Poison Faster
  • Level 2: Increase Cloud Duration
  • Level 3: Toxic Cloud/Poison Pickup Locations

This build will make Sissy a more effective saboteur as she can make long lasting poison clouds to reroute victims into a dead end, and also contaminate usable and interactable objects in the map.
