Cry of Fear Wiki

The Drowned is a monster in Cry of Fear, first encountered in Chapter 1 of the game, specifically in the apartment's basement.

About the Monster

This monster has no physical attacks until the player approaches too closely. A baby then bursts from the monster's stomach and attacks with a knife. The attacks are difficult to dodge.

The primary way she attacks is, if the player is exposed to her for too long with at least one bullet in their weapons, the screen will shake and darken then Simon will start to panic, followed by the monster forcing Simon's gun to his head in an attempt to make him commit suicide. The player must quickly press the left mouse button to make Simon resist the urge to kill himself, when the player is successful in resisting it, the screen will go back to normal with Simon seemingly crying a little bit after the event is over.

Pistol-whipping her with an empty magazine is productive. The baby strikes at about the same rate as Citalopram or Crazyrunner, but Drowned's slow speed makes dodging back and striking again fairly harm-free. Eliminate her in areas you intend to frequent, as she can actually attack between door-off sections of the same map (Subways are probably the best example).

Note: If the player has only a melee weapon equipped, the Suicidal Influence has no effect.

Relevance to Simon

The suicidal influence this enemy does to Simon is a reflection of Simon's real desire and attempts at committing suicide.
