Killers

From Dead by Daylight Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search
Dbd-journal-killers.png These things differ from time to time. But each acts in a similar manner, and with similar human physical traits. But they are more reminiscent of beasts of burden even though I can spot some flicker of humanity. With scars and marks on their skin and body. As if they have been self-mutilating themselves. They even look dead. I fail to see some humanity in them. They are bent on finding me. But somehow they refrain from killing me. Instead I am hung from one of those dreaded hooks. I keep asking myself why they do not snuff the life out me themselves. But someone must control them. Might they do someone else’s biddings?

I keep trying to understand them at the same time as they stalk me. I try finding something that can pinpoint their purpose. I wonder if they might be punished? But in that case, am not I in the same position? Being punished for something, as I try to escape and find some way out of here. They play their role. Without any diversions, they are like a machine that is set on finding any living soul. Are they without hope? Who do they serve? Is there even a master? I have never seen them rest or stop. They hunt until the hooks are occupied. But where do they go after that? Trying to find some answers is one of the few things that keep me sane. For now. If you stumble upon one of these beings you must run and you must hide. Without any sound.''

The Killers are Characters in Dead by Daylight IconHelp DBDlogo.png.

Overview

It is highly recommended to thoroughly read up on both Killers and Survivors to fully understand both sides. For tips on playing Killer, please refer to this section of the Wiki: Playing Killer: Tips and Tricks

The Killers have been tasked by The Entity IconHelp entity.png to hunt down and sacrifice every Survivor IconHelpLoading survivor.png before they can escape.
In order to achieve this objective, a Killer should do the following:

  • Patrol the area and find Survivors.
  • Chase, injure and catch Survivors before they escape.
  • Carry Survivors to a sacrificial Hook and hang them there for The Entity to consume.

Meanwhile, Survivors will be attempting to repair 5 Generators IconHelpLoading generators.png in order to power the 2 Exit Gates IconHelp exitGates.png and make their escape. Killers should do everything in their power to stop them.

Trivia

  • In the game files, the Killers are being referred to as "Slashers", likely due to them being inspired by 80s Slasher Horror movies.
  • Benedict Baker contradicts himself in his writings about the Killers. He first says: "But they are more reminiscent of beasts of burden even though I can spot some flicker of humanity". Then later in the exact same paragraph states "I fail to see some humanity in them".
