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


Overview

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!

Trivia

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