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


Overview[edit | edit source]

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. All Players will see the claws of The Entity IconHelp entity.png appearing around the Obsession's Status Icon that are moving when the Obsession is in a Chase.

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

Using whatever is at hand, you stab at your aggressor in an ultimate attempt to escape.

After being unhooked or unhooking yourself, Decisive Strike will become active and usable for 40/50/60 seconds.
