Obsession is a mechanic in Dead by Daylight IconHelp DBDlogo.png that was introduced with Patch 1.2.1.

Some Perks IconHelp perks.png and Add-ons IconHelp addons.png can trigger the Obsession game play. If this happens, one Survivor is selected to be the Killer's Obsession for the trial. The Killer and the Obsession will see Entity IconHelp entity.png's claws around the Obsession's status icon, but other Survivors will not know who the Obsession is until they die or escape.

The effects of Obsession depend on the Perks and Add-ons that triggered it.
