This article is an overview of all Flashlights featured in Dead by Daylight. For other uses, see Flashlight (disambiguation).

Flashlights are a type of Item IconHelp items.png The Survivors IconHelpLoading survivor.png can use in Dead by Daylight IconHelp DBDlogo.png.

Overview[edit | edit source]

They can be used to blind the Killer. If they are carrying a Survivor on their shoulder, getting blinded will make them drop that Survivor and be stunned for a few seconds.
The Flashlight is also very effective against three Killers, The Hag, The Wraith, and The Nurse. Shining a Flashlight upon a Wraith when he is cloaked or in the act of uncloaking will trigger the Lightburn effect, stunning him for a few seconds and forcing an instant uncloak. Shining a Flashlight upon one of the Hag's Phantasm Traps will highlight and destroy it. Shining a Flashlight upon the Nurse while she is charging up a Blink will trigger the Lightburn effect, causing her to go straight into the fatigue from the Blink.
