Well, up here it's all intel. Down that hallway is the observation room. No tests going on in there right now. Maybe later. And beneath us I have special machines for rebuilding PSI Challenge Markers and detangling Mental Cobwebs. You should go familiarize yourself with those. They'll come in pretty handy for you.

–Ford Cruller

Mental Cobwebs are bright-purple colored cobwebs found in mental worlds that can only be collected with the Cobweb Duster. They form when an area of the mind isn't used for prolonged periods of time. Those with sever mental issues can have cobwebs so big that they block off larger portions of their mind and must be cleared to continue the game.


The first cobweb is encountered in Basic Braining, where Coach Oleander tells Raz to steer clear of them at the moment, as they cannot be removed without a Cobweb Duster, an item available for purchase at the Camp Store. Once a Mental Cobweb has been extracted, Raz can travel to Ford's Sanctuary and use the loom to weave the web into a PSI-Card. The cobwebs that have been extracted will not return to its original location.

Cobwebs block player progression from the Milkman Conspiracy onward, thus requiring Razputin to purchase the Cobweb Duster.
