Background[edit | edit source]
It took two tours in Vietnam, a handful of medals, a knee full of shrapnel, and an honorable discharge to get William "Bill" Overbeck to stop fighting and try to live a peaceful life. He hated it. After decades spent drifting aimlessly through dead end jobs, Bill went in for a routine surgery and woke up to find the world he knew was gone. A plague was turning normal people into mindless killing machines. Naturally, the first thing he did was fight his way home and put on his uniform. Making his way through rural ghost towns and pitch-black forests, he found other survivors, and together they fled from the infected hordes. In the end, Bill sacrificed himself to ensure their safety. His body was never found. Bill was left for dead. No one knows that he still has the only thing he ever wanted: an enemy to fight.
Unique Perks[edit | edit source]
These are perks that start off only appearing in William's Bloodweb. Starting after achieving level 30, teachable versions of these perks can be found: Left Behind at level 30, Borrowed Time at level 35, and Unbreakable at level 40. If obtained, other survivors are able to find William's perks in their Bloodwebs from that point on.
William is all about running against bad changes. He can change the outcome of the Trial, even just by himself.
You'll get the job done... No matter the cost. If you are the last person remaining in the trial, for each Generator that needs to be repaired, gain a 19/22/25 % bonus to repair speed. "I'm not horseshittin' around. I'm doing this alone!" -Bill"

You are fuelled with an unexpected energy when saving an ally from a hook within the Killer's Terror Radius. Once per match, for 20 seconds after unhooking a Survivor within the Killer's Terror Radius, any damage taken that would put you or the unhooked Survivor into the dying state will instead trigger a 30/35/40 seconds bleed-out timer. Taking any damage during or reaching the end of the bleed-out timer will put you into the dying state. "Probably stings like hell, but it ain't gonna kill ya. Up and at 'em soldier. Time to move!" -Bill"
