Top-Tier Follower Traits In Cult Of The Lamb

Top Followers Traits In Cult Of The Lamb

Now, you have an idea of all the traits that can be expected during the playthrough. However, it is important to know about the top traits in detail. We have covered the top 5 negative and top 5 positive traits in detail.

5 Negative Follower Traits

The top 5 negative traits include Terrified of Death, Against sacrifice, Sloth, Good Die Young, and Natural Skeptic. 

Natural Skeptic

It is an inconvenient trait because you will lose 10 Faith immediately. If you have planned to recruit a follower with the trait, you should know that you will lose 10 faith at once. You will not lose faith every time you recruit other followers in your cult. Although losing 10 faith is not a huge amount, the purpose is to avoid losing faith, and the trait of natural skepticism does not help in this regard.

Against Sacrifice

You should know that sacrifices are a part of the Cult of The Lamb, and at a certain point in the game, these sacrifices become necessary. The trait can cause serious trouble to your faith level, as you do not want your cultists to dissent whenever you plan a sacrifice of the follower. You should be extremely careful while recruiting followers possessing traits “against sacrifice,” as it will be of no benefit to your cult.

Terrified Of Death

Noticing one of your followers possessing the Terrified of death trait means a lot of trouble with your faith. The game is all about deaths, murders, and sacrifices, meaning a very high possibility of the trait impacting your faith. Every time after death, your faith will be affected.

A lower faith in your cult will also lead to dissenting followers. Try not to recruit followers with the terrified of death traits, as it is going to impact the level of faith in your cult severely. 

Good Die Young

It is an inconvenient trait, as you can only sacrifice your elder followers. There is nothing too bad with the trait, as you can keep using Good Die Young trait to sacrifice the elderly followers and prevent losing faith. However, if the elderly followers die due to some other reasons, you will lose 20 Faith. 

You can smartly prevent losing faith due to the trait by sacrificing those followers first who are naturally close to death. In this way, you will not lose faith, and the negative trait will not impact you much.


Sloth is not too bad, but it can be inconvenient at times, as recruiting a follower with the Sloth trait will generate devotion 10% slower than other followers. Just try not to assign any task to the followers with Sloth trait that you need quickly. 

The faith level in your cult will not be affected much by the Sloth trait, but it will reduce the speed of the task. If you are okay with getting a few tasks done slower, the Sloth trait will not be a big problem for you to manage.

5 Best Positive Follower Traits

The top 5 best followers traits include Grass Eater, Gullible, Zealous, Belief in Sacrifice, and Faithful. The explanation of these traits is as follows.

Belief In Sacrifice

It is one of the best traits in the game, and you will come across Belief in sacrifice trait at some point in your playthrough. The trait is your cult’s trait, as you do not want your followers to dissent every time you plan to sacrifice some followers for a greater cause. The trait of belief in sacrifice can be gained by declaring new doctrines


It is important to have more devotion in the cult, as more devotion means more growth, and you can eventually unlock more goodies. The best option is to get your hands on a lot of followers with the trait because you will be generating massive devotion. It will not be wrong to say that the more the level of faith in your cult, the more will be the chances of growth.


Zealous is an amazing trait for the follower. Dissenters have the power to bring the whole cult down with them once they start preaching. Having zealous followers will help because they will not listen to dissenters and remain loyal to the cult. Loyalty will help followers to stick to the cult, and it will also be useful to maintain the level of faith in the cult.


Everyone wants to have strong followers, but the real effort is to make weak followers strong. The gullible trait of followers makes them level up faster than any other followers. Leveling up means getting stronger a lot faster than others. You need to put in a lot of work to toughening up your followers possessing this trait.

Grass Eater

It is one of the popular traits in the game, as you can build massive amounts of grass in the game. The grass generation usually takes place at the start of the game, and grass will not be of much use until the later part of the game, so it is best to have grass eater traits in the early game. It will also provide a great source of food for the followers.


The traits of the followers in Cult of The Lamb are of enormous importance, as they decide the performance of the followers. To judge how good or bad a follower will perform, you need to know all the traits in the game. We have not only covered a list of all the traits but also a list of the top traits of followers in the game. Our guide will help you to judge your follower’s performance.
