Bloodlust is a new mechanic that was introduced with Patch 1.5.0.

It increases the Killer's movement speed during a prolonged chase in order to shorten the overall chase time.

Bloodlust, like Perks, has three Tiers:

Tier Chase time Speed Bonus in m/s
I 15 seconds +0.2
II 30 seconds +0.4
III 45 seconds +0.6


Gaining Bloodlust

Bloodlust is being built-up whenever a Killer IconHelpLoading killer.png chases a Survivor IconHelpLoading survivor.png for a certain amount of time without interrupting the chase. Losing a Survivor will result in a quick decrease of Bloodlust.
