Lightburn is a Game Mechanic in Dead by Daylight .
Overview[edit | edit source]
This is achieved by shining the Flashlight anywhere on their body, effectively stunning and thus forcing them to momentarily stop using their ability. These stuns are no longer affected by the Perk Enduring . The stuns are independent from blinding the Killer, it is thus possible to simultaneously burn and blind a Killer.
Wraith[edit | edit source]
A burn will always force him to fully uncloak himself and screams just as if he was stunned by a Pallet .
Shining a Flashlight for ~2 seconds upon the cloaked Wraith will stun him in place for ~3 seconds. From The Wraith's POV, the same animation as the Nurse's fatigue will play during the stun. From the Survivor's POV, he will sway around a bit, almost as if drunk.
Nurse[edit | edit source]
Shining a Flashlight for ~2 seconds upon The Nurse will stun her in place for ~2 seconds. A slightly faster fatigue animation will play, albeit without the tunnel vision VFX.
Although not strictly a stun, The Nurse also cannot start a Blink whilst a Flashlight is being shone upon her.
Trivia[edit | edit source]
- Other Killers cannot interact with the Spirit World and thus do not suffer from the Lightburn mechanic.
