Best Leland build in Texas Chain Saw Massacre

When building Leland, your main focus should be on his Strength and Endurance. If you want to play a stealthy character, build Julie or build Connie instead. Leland has the worst stealth of the entire crew, but he compensates for it with his wicked athletics.

Spotting a Family member chasing another Victim? Help them out by barging into them. Your goal as Leland is to protect both you and your fellow Victims, so if that sounds like your thing, let’s dive into the best Leland build in Texas Chain Saw Massacre.

Best Attributes for Leland in Texas Chain Saw Massacre

  1. Strength
  2. Endurance
  3. Toughness

All of Leland’s greatest Attributes have to do with his athletics. When you stab a Family member with a Bone Shard, or use his Life Saver ability to stun them, you want the best power. His Strength is already pretty high, so you don’t need to invest too many Attribute points into that.

Add the most points into Endurance and Toughness. While Endurance helps Leland’s stamina, Toughness aids his recovery time and survivability. With Leland’s amazing Strength, he can have the upper-hand against Family member fights, and he can stun them easier.

Best Perks for Leland in Texas Chain Saw Massacre

  • Agitator
  • Choose Fight
  • No Sell
  • Empowered
  • Radar Detector

Surprisingly, some of the best Perks for Leland come from a variety of Attribute categories. Although you can only pick three Perks at a time, any of these on this list will make for a great build. Agitator, for starters, makes incapacitating Grandpa inflict worse effects. The Family bond level is reduced by 2-3-4 (levels one to three), which makes Agitator a great Perk to make it harder for the Family to spot Victims.

Then there’s Choose Fight, which is another Strength-based Perk. This makes sneak attacks and close encounters stun Family members for 2-3.5-5 seconds longer. Having those extra few seconds to escape their grasp is detrimental to your survival. No Sell is also a vital Perk for Leland. This Toughness Perk will lessen the damage from Family members by 40-60-80%. It also has one charge per level, meaning by level three, you have 3 charges to barely get damaged by hits.

With the Empowered Perk, after surviving a close encounter, Leland regains 10-30-50 HP, and 50-70-90% of his max stamina. Leland can run out of stamina and health fast, which makes this Perk very useful. Lastly, Radar Detector is a Stealth Perk, but it can benefit all Victims. When Grandpa’s Sonar ability strikes, all Family members become highlighted for five seconds. This has 3-5-7 charges, so at its highest level, this becomes an amazing Perk.

Texas Chain Saw Massacre Best Leland Build Life Saver Ability

Best Life Saver ability tree in Texas Chain Saw Massacre

While Life Saver is a very good ability, it becomes even better once you level it up. This will take some time, but it’s tough deciding which pathway to go, since there are only certain combinations to pick in this ability tree. In my opinion, the path you should take should start with Quicker Recharge. You’ll want that barge ability to recharge sooner than later, so this upgrade is vital.

Next, you should pick Restore Stamina at level two. You’ll earn a ton more stamina back after using this ability, more than what you’d earn if you chose the level one version of this buff. Finally, keep heading in that northeast direction and choose Increased Stun Duration. Now, Family members will stay stunned longer, which earns you and your fellow Victims an easier escape.

  • Level One: Quicker Recharge
    • Time taken to recharge ability is set to 162 seconds.
  • Level Two: Restore Stamina
    • After barging a Family member, 60 stamina is restored.
  • Level Three: Increased Stun Duration
    • Barged Family members will be stunned for 12 seconds.
