Best Sissy Build in The Texas Chain Saw Massacre



As far as wild cards go, The Texas Chain Saw Massacre has just the two: Connie, and Sissy. Given the fact that you’ve found yourself on this page, then it’s safe to say that you’re probably after that ideal Sissy build, in which case you’re in for a treat, as the powder-wielding singer actually has some of the best Perks and Abilities in the entire game. However, unless you have the best nodes on the Skill Tree unlocked and a perfectly balanced Attribute slider, chances are you’ll never get to see these powers in all their glory.

So, how do you unlock the best Sissy build in The Texas Chain Saw Massacre, and what should you do to maximize your chances of winning each and every match? Well, here’s what we’d recommend doing just as soon as you’ve harvested enough XP to start punching out those holes on the Skill Tree.


First and foremost, there’s the case of dealing with Sissy’s Ability, which is something called Bane—a powder-based trick that can be applied to various objects around the map, as well as in the faces of Victims to cause temporary confusion. In order to make use of the Bane Ability, players must source deadly plants from around the outdoorsy areas, and then convert them into the toxic substance at one of several pestle stations. Like a lot of Abilities, meeting the requirements to be able to use it can take a while, so don’t fret if you can’t figure it all out in one go.

Of course, you’ll need to learn the three available maps in The Texas Chain Saw Massacre like the back of your hand if you’re planning on pushing Bane to its fullest extent. Once you’ve cracked down on the pestle stations and narrowed down each and every crag and crevice, you’ll want to start applying some Modifiers, which will in turn boost the overall quality of each attack or trap.

As far as Modifiers go, you’re going to want to work towards the highest level in Increase Poison Duration, as this will essentially let you not only poison Victims, but gradually reduce their health bars over a significant amount of time. If you’re liaising with your team a lot, then you should, in theory, be able to strategically remove each Victim from the board as a unit before their HP hits zero.


In order to max out Sissy and put her Bane Ability to perfectly good use, you’ll also want to purchase three Perks, in specific. If you can help it, aim to unlock these three following nodes on the Skill Tree, and then have them activated during matches with other Family members in order to increase their overall power.

  • Rubber Legs

If you’re able to trap a Victim with your signature Bane Ability, then you could, technically, make their lives even harder by reducing their movement speed, too. By activating the Rubber Legs Perk, you’ll be able to round up your other Family members and corner a Victim, leaving them defenseless and vulnerable.

  • Linger 

The Linger Perk boosts the radius of the poison cloud, which means you’ll be able to cloak larger areas of the map with the substance, as well as key items such as Unlock Tools, Generators, and Batteries.

  • Spore Loser

Spore Loser gives you a chance to regain control over your opponent after a failed encounter by offering up a last-minute poison cloud. If you’re unable to finalize the kill, then simply drop a spontaneous cloud to confuse the enemy and take a second stab.


If you’ve romped through your fair share of matches as either the Family or Victims, then you’re probably in possession of quite a lot of XP. If you’ve got a surplus of it, then you’ll want to start pinging all those Extra Attribute Points over on the Skill Tree. Once you’ve fully fleshed out all of its branches, you should have at least 30 additional points to spend on any of the three available Attributes. In the case of Sissy, you’ll want to pour most of these points into the Endurance slider, what with the bulk of each match having you sprint between key obstacles, plants, and pestle stations.

Of course, Savagery and Blood Harvesting shouldn’t be neglected, either. For what it’s worth, though, it’s better to boost Blood Harvesting over Savagery, as one of your primary objectives outside of creating toxins and laying traps is to feed Grandpa vials of blood to help boost his hearing abilities. However, given the fact that Sissy already comes loaded with a pretty high Blood Harvesting slider, you could also sideline it and focus on the Savagery slider, which will in turn boost her attack power and damage output.

  • +20 Endurance
  • +2 Blood Harvesting 
  • +10 Savagery

Skill Tree

Filling out the Skill Tree is one of the most temperamental things in The Texas Chain Saw Massacre, as one wrong Random Perk node will mean having to restart from scratch. Having said that, as the option to hit Respec doesn’t openly rob you of all your acquired XP, it doesn’t matter too much if you reach the apex without the best Perks on hand. Even still, you should aim to steer towards the Endurance nodes as much as possible.

Just to echo, you’ll need to apply all of the purchased Perks to your loadout and use them during matches in order to level up their overall power. Also, you’ll need to put in a fair amount of work before having an almost overpowered character, so don’t expect to have the ideal build right off the bat. If, however, you can hit level 10 and distribute all of the available Attribute points accordingly, then you’ll be well on your way to having one of the best villains in all of The Texas Chain Saw Massacre.
