Bleeding is a Game Mechanic featured in Dead by Daylight IconHelp DBDlogo.png.


Survivors IconHelpLoading survivor.png in either the Injured IconHelp injured.png or Dying State IconHelp dying.png, or afflicted by Deep Wound IconStatusEffects deepWound.png, are affected with Bleeding. They leave pools of blood trailing after them until they are healed, unless they are using No Mither IconPerks noMither.png. The Killer IconHelpLoading killer.png is notified when bleeding Survivors have been healed by a displayed in-game Score Event.

Apt Killers can use the blood pools to track down an injured Survivor, which is especially useful if the Survivor has Iron Will IconPerks ironWill.png and is silent.

On darker Maps, Blood IconStatusEffects bleeding.png is rather difficult to discern from the floor textures, especially in patches of grass. Bloodhound IconPerks bloodhound.png greatly increases the visibility of Blood, thus making it easier to track Bleeding Survivors.

Bleeding is related to the Status Effect Hemorrhage IconStatusEffects bleeding.png.

Unlockables affecting Bleeding


Icon Name Description
IconPerks bloodhound.png Bloodhound

Like a hunting scent hound, you smell traces of blood at a great distance.

Fresh Blood Stains are considerably more discernible than normal and can be tracked for 2/3/4 seconds longer than normal.

"Pebbles shimmering in the moonlight; my life drips down in a trail so easy to follow."

"I lost it. Just lamped him one. They went and banned me didn't they. Went t'pub afterwards, had a few pints and moved on to the next chapter. I couldn't be mithered with it all anyway, you know what I mean? Can't be arsed." — David King

IconPerks sloppyButcher.png Sloppy Butcher

You know where to hit to make them bleed.

Wounds inflicted by successful attacks slightly/moderately/considerably increase the Survivor's bleeding frequency and cause the Mangled Status Effect.

Haemorrhage IconStatusEffects bleeding.png and Mangled IconStatusEffects mangled.png effects caused by Sloppy Butcher return to normal once the Survivor is fully healed.

"It's in its sadistic nature. There is no swift kill as it delights in the obscene spectacle of our agonising suffering."

IconPerks vigil.png Vigil

You look over your friends even in dire situations.

You and your Allies within a range of 8 metres recover from Exhaustion IconStatusEffects exhausted.png, Haemorrhage IconStatusEffects bleeding.png, Mangled IconStatusEffects mangled.png, Hindered IconStatusEffects hindered.png and Blindness IconStatusEffects vision.png Status Effects 10/15/20 % faster.

Once out of range, this effect persists for 15 seconds.

"I'm gonna be here when you wake up. You're gonna make it." — Quentin Smith
