Notice of Edit Suspension: Data-mining has revealed solid evidence that Freddy Krueger is the next Killer and Kate Denson the next Survivor, which was mentioned on previous edits on this Wiki. This page amongst others is on lock-down for the rest of October as I'm tired of the edit warring. Should the information turn out to be inaccurate (unlikely), then it'll be changed accordingly.

IconHelpLoading players.png

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!

List of Unused/Speculated Characters


  • Patch 1.5.0 added a new feature called Character Info, which can be brought up with F1, giving an overview over a Character.
  • Every playable character has their own unique Bloodweb.
  • As each character's loadout is saved separately, items cannot be transferred to other characters (with an exception to Teachable Perks).
    • However, Items and Add-ons can be transferred between players in-game by having another player picking up an Item that another player has dropped.
