Each night, you target someone and kill everyone at their "house". Being at their house means someone targeting them with their ability. For instance, if a Sheriff visits your target, then the Sheriff will die. If your target has targeted someone else, they are deemed "not at home" and will not be killed. Killing two or more people will trigger a cool-down (if applicable) on your killing ability, which may be 1 or 2 nights (depending on the setting) before you are allowed to try to kill again. If a Bodyguard visits your target, they will save all players there (aside from themself) and kill you instead.

The Mass Murderer wins if he is the last player left alive, or if any faction is left other than an Arsonist or Serial Killer. (See One Versus One Mechanics)

    This is the game image which appears when a Mass Murderer achieves a solo win.
    Targeting roles that have no night ability will almost always kill them. This is because that role cannot "leave" his house. This will give you an almost guaranteed kill for that night. The only exception is if the person is forced to visit someone by a Witch or has been healed by a Doctor. Examples include:
  • Targeting a person that is going to be visited by someone is a good strategy because you may get multiple kills.
  • If the ability to target yourself is on, it may be a viable strategy to attract attention to yourself and to then kill anyone who visits you.
    • Depending on how you act, you can increase the chance you kill certain people. For instance, a Doctor claim is likely to attract the Mafia to you, while talking too much or not at all may cause a Sheriff or Investigator to target you. Claiming to be Sheriff can attract a Doctor to you.


  • Invulnerable at night - (Default: On)
  • Can target self - (Default: On)
  • 1 night between sprees - (Default: On)
  • 2 night between sprees - (Default: Off)
  • Immune to detection - (Default: Off)

If all the night between sprees options are unchecked, the Mass Murderer will be able to perform killing sprees every night.


  • Someone that visits the Mass Murderer's target's house may be saved by a Doctor or a Bodyguard.
  • A Doctor will save someone who is targeted by the Mass Murderer and stays in their "home", the Doctor will still die.
  • A Bodyguard will kill a Mass Murderer who attacks the Bodyguard's target at the target's home. No-one else other than the Bodyguard and the Mass Murderer will die including other visitors to the house.
  • Escorts and Consorts do survive if they visit the Mass Murderer and the Mass Murderer is visiting himself.
