In Dead by Daylight, there are two distinct roles to play and multiple characters in each role to choose from.
Each Killer has their own strengths, weaknesses and unique power, whereas Survivors initially vary only in their appearance. However, every Killer and Survivor has 3 unique Perks to unlock in their bloodweb which can eventually be taught to other characters.
Every character comes with its own way to play, progression path, loadout and customisation options which fit your tastes. Feel free to experiment!
