In Dead by Daylight IconHelp DBDlogo.png, there are two distinct roles to play and multiple Characters in each role to choose from.

Each Killer IconHelpLoading killer.png has their own strengths, weaknesses and unique power, whereas Survivors IconHelpLoading survivor.png initially vary only in their appearance. However, every Killer and Survivor has 3 unique Perks IconHelp perks.png to unlock in their Bloodweb IconHelp bloodweb.png which can eventually be taught to other Characters.

Every Character comes with its own play style, progression path, Load-out IconHelp loadout.png and customisation options which fit your tastes. Feel free to experiment!
