From a wellspring of eternal agony comes a swarm of darkness, a wild and ferocious murder of ink black crows.
Press and hold the Power button to charge Birds of Torment. Once fully charged, tap the Attack button to summon a Dire Crow. You can repeat the action quickly by continuously holding down the Power button and tapping the Attack Button again.
When at least one Dire Crow is summoned, it stays idle for a limited time. Spawning a new Dire Crow will extend the time the previously spawned Dire Crow stays idle.
Tap the Ability button to propel the Dire Crows into flight.
Dire Crows can inflict damage for a short distance when flying. This is indicated to the Killer by the Dire Crow's Flight Path.
Once a Dire Crow continues past the Flight Path, it will no longer inflict damage but can now pass through any obstacles and reveal nearby Survivors using Killer Instinct.
In this phase, Dire Crows will create a swarm around Survivors they hit, allowing the Killer to see the swarm's aura on the Survivor. The Survivor can repel the swarm by completing the Repel action or entering a locker. During this time, the swarm's aura is not shown to the Killer.
A Survivor being swarmed will receive damage if hit by a second Dire Crow.
