- This article is an overview of all Maps featured in Dead by Daylight. For other uses, see Map (disambiguation).
They are used to track and mark props in the World. The standard map can only track Generators, but can track different props as well with the use of Map Add-ons that enhance its power. You can even make the tracked Auras visible to other Survivors and create markers that look like a pillar of bright light.
Tracking works by simply being near track-able Objectives (the standard range being 8 metres), the Player is not required to charge the Map's Aura Vision to do that.
|Map (Item)||An old piece of parchment made out of a skin-like material. Is rolled and sealed with an uncoloured leather string. Holding and channelling the Map unlocks great potential in one's Aura-reading ability which slowly burns the Map. Generators' Auras which you have already encountered are revealed to you for as long as the Map has charges left.|
Other type of Maps[edit | edit source]
|Rainbow Map||A piece of parchment made out of oddly fresh skin. Blood on its edge has yet to dry. It is rolled and sealed with multiple coloured ropes and cords. Holding and channelling the Map unlocks a great potential in one's Aura-reading ability which slowly burns up the Map. Objects with Auras which you have already encountered are revealed to you for as long as the Map has charges left.
"It disheartens me. All this unspeakable knowledge and gruelling effort and yet nothing tangible, nothing usable to get out of this nightmare." — Vigo's Journal
Add-ons[edit | edit source]
The following are Add-ons for the Maps.
|Map Addendum||A fragmented piece of a thick fibrous material. A partial and faded map is drawn on it which by itself is useless.
|Yellow Wire||A small electrical wire. Both ends are heavily damaged like it has been forcefully torn out of its intended location. Can be tied around a map to enhance its Aura-reading ability.
|Unusual Stamp||A wooden stamp with a cross-hatched rubber pad used to mark documents. It is unclear as to how or by whom this stamp was originally used. Can be used with a map.
|Retardant Jelly||A slimy, translucent substance with a ghastly lavender shade. This jelly from unknown origin is highly resistant to heat.
|Red Twine||A bristly and rough piece of twine of a deep red colour. Can be tied around a map to enhance its Aura-reading ability.
|Glass Bead||A strange bead circled with gold that can be used to magnify the map and mark a specific position. The bead emits an energy which can be felt and seen by Survivors.
|Odd Stamp||A stamp carved out of sturdy blonde wood. The text found at the base is incomprehensible: "kw'zvre'od". Can be used with a map.
|Black Silk Cord||A smooth black cord with a soft appearance. Can be tied around a map to enhance its Aura-reading ability.
|Crystal Bead||An intricate set of lenses wrapped up in an astonishingly complex apparatus. The gears controlling the lenses' focus move by themselves as to focus on something invisible to humans.
Trivia[edit | edit source]
- During the early months after release, Players have frequently joked about the in-game icon for the Map looking a bit like a Burrito.
- This made the developers name the Survivor part of the Anniversary's 4th challenge "Stuffed Burrito".
