Lockers are tall, red cabinets featured in Dead by Daylight IconHelp DBDlogo.png, which Survivors IconHelpLoading survivor.png can use to hide in and are used by The Huntress IconHelpLoading huntress.png to refill her Hunting Hatchets IconPowers huntingHatchets.png.

Usage[edit | edit source]

Survivors can enter empty lockers. If a locker already has a Survivor hiding inside it, the player attempting to enter will show a surprised animation state and close the door on the other Survivor. If a locker is empty, Survivors can either walk in (which is mostly quiet) or sprint in, which will make a lot more noise but reduce the animation time, unless a survivor is using Quick & Quiet IconPerks quickAndQuiet.png. The same applies when walking out of it again.

If a Killer opens a locker with a Survivor hidden inside it, the Killer IconHelpLoading killer.png, in a unique animation, will first grab the Survivor out of the locker and then carry them on their shoulder - forcing them to wiggle out of the killer's grasp. If a Survivor is in a locker for an extended period of time, crows will begin to land on its roof. If the Survivor hides inside it long enough, Stillness Crows will start circling above the locker, eventually alerting the Killer to their location.

Lockers have a muffling effect on Survivors breathing and groans of pain, about the equivalent to that of Iron Will IconPerks ironWill.png at tier 1. While inside a locker, Survivors will breathe quietly, which can still be picked up by an experienced Killer. If they are injured, they will grunt in pain, still much quieter than if they were in the open. If the Survivor has Iron Will, the Survivor will be inaudible. However, if the Survivor is injured, they will leave blood as they enter the locker. The hiding time is long enough that the Survivor will leave at least two pools of blood at the foot of the locker. Observant killers can easily track this.

Survivors can also stun the Killer IconHelpLoading killer.png after rushing out of a locker if they have the Head On IconPerks headOn.png perk and the Killer is at a close range.

Change Log[edit | edit source]

Patch 2.4.0[edit | edit source]

  • Hiding inside a Locker now blocks any Aura-reading ability a Killer might have.

Patch 2.6.0[edit | edit source]

  • Hiding inside a Locker now applies the Blindness IconStatusEffects vision.png Status Effect, blocking any Aura-reading ability the hiding Survivor might have.
  • Reduced the distance at which a Survivor's breathing and grunting can be heard while they are hiding in Lockers.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Lockers were also known as "Closets".
  • Hiding inside a Locker will block any Aura-reading abilities the Killer and the hiding Survivor might have.
  • Lockers prevent the Doctor's Static Field from increasing a Survivor's level of Madness.
    • Hiding in a Locker with a Doctor in Treatment mode nearby is the best option to prevent giving away your location via a Madness Tier-up.
    • Hiding in a Locker will also slowly decrease the Madness levels of a Survivor as long as the Doctor is in Punishment mode.
    • If the Survivor is in Tier III Madness, the Survivor will not scream when inside the Locker. They will still hallucinate, however.
  • Lockers are where the Huntress IconHelpLoading huntress.png replenishes her Hunting Hatchets.
    • At the back of every Locker, there is a rack of three Hatchets. she will always take the one in the centre.
  • If The Wraith is cloaked while opening a locker and finds a Survivor, he will uncloak over time while the animation is playing.
