|Notable loot||Twisted Key|
The Church Basement is a location accessed through the trapdoor in the Church Ruins. It seems to have, at one point, served as a sanctuary of sorts for several people, but is now dilapidated and partially collapsed.
The Basement consists of several rooms with plague-ridden corpses like the ones littered across the Silent Forest and the Old Woods, on beds and cots throughout the area. Five of those corpses are dormant Red Chompers, like the one found at The Bridge; besides being approached or attacked, they will become active if the radio at the very back is turned on. They can be attacked and killed before they get up and go through the final transformation. Several containers with random loot can be found throughout the place.
Depending on how the "The Church" dream sequence was resolved, different types of enemies will spawn inside the basement:
- If the player has killed the Black Chomper and opened the trapdoor, a pack of Huge Dogs will be roaming the place, eating the various corpses. These Huge Dogs are less aggressive than usual. The Twisted Key can be found on the Huge Dog that is the farthest into the basement.
- If the player gets killed by the Black Chomper or escapes the Church through the backdoor in the dream, the basement will be filled with dormant Red Chompers and the Twisted Key can be found at the very back.
