Texas Chain Saw Massacre: Sonny Guide – Mastering the Unconventional Survivor

Understanding Sonny’s Profile

Sonny stands out as a character that demands strategic finesse to excel with. His distinct attributes and abilities make him a challenging survivor to master, but with the right tactics, he can become an asset to your team.


Despite his vulnerability, Sonny’s task-oriented attributes make him a strong contender when played skillfully. Here’s a recommended attribute progression strategy:

  • Invest a minimum of 10 points in toughness initially to mitigate his vulnerability.
  • Allocate 10 points to proficiency to bring core attributes to 35.
  • Further enhance attributes based on your preferred playstyle—more proficiency and strength for tasks, or toughness and endurance for resilience.


While Sonny’s toughness may leave much to be desired, his strength lies in his other attributes. Let’s break down his key stats:

  • Toughness: Sonny’s weakest attribute at a mere 15, making him susceptible to quick eliminations.
  • Stealth: With a low stealth rating of 15, Sonny is less adept at evading threats.
  • Endurance and Strength: Both of these attributes are solidly rated at 35, granting Sonny an ample stamina pool and the ability to handle physical tasks.
  • Proficiency: At 25, Sonny possesses decent dexterity and skill, making him versatile in various tasks.
