Dead Cells DLC ‘Fatal Flaws’ Details

There’s lots of new content to explore in the new Fatal Flaws DLC, including new biomes, enemies, bosses, and weapons. 

Two new biomes are The Fractured Shrines and The Undying Shores, which parallel Stilt Village, Clock Tower, and Time Keeper to spice up your mid-game runs. A new boss, known as The Scarecrow, also makes a debut in the DLC. Look out for new homicidal pet swords and slightly psychotic enemies like Myopic Crow, Clumsy Swordsman, and Compulsive Gravedigger.

And what’s an update without new weapons? Fatal Falls‘ new flying maniacal sword is designed to bring Brutality players a real counterpart to the Great Owl and Mushroom Boi. Scythes have also been added, and they are attracted to enemies and will follow you around a bit. Seven new weapons in total have arrived: 

  • Lightning Rods
  • Ferryman’s Lantern
  • Scarecrow’s Sickles
  • Iron Staff
  • Snake Fangs
  • Serenade 
  •  Cocoon

Each weapon helps you navigate different areas of the new biomes. You can also look good exploring, because ten new outfits are available in the update, as well.

Previous Dead Cells updates brought six new mobs, system changes, a backpack, new biomes, new enemies, and lots of weaponry. Update 21, entitled the Malaise Update, changes the way late-game mechanics work. The update hits consoles sometime in February and is currently available on PC.
