Survivors

From Dead by Daylight Wiki

Dbd-journal-survivors.png I am not alone. If you set aside the killers. I have found others. Survivors that are just like me. Or at least I believe so, I want to believe so. Sometimes I manage to just catch a glimpse of a poor soul as he gets carried away. Others I have actually told my name. I do not always want to know their names. It makes it harder as they hang from the hook. I help them...sometimes. Just as they help me. Fear is our common denominator. And we bond. We have nobody else. Human contact and interaction sooths this trial we share. I ask myself whether I am better off alone, or if we can come farther together. Sometimes I bare shame as I sneak away from screams. But I have equally often been on the other side, hanging two feet off the ground, whereas I see someone, watching from shrubbery. Like a witness. Maybe it is important to watch, and remind oneself that pain is not the only thing that burdens our lives at this point? But also our souls. Do we deserve to live if we were to escape?
~ Benedict Baker's Journal

Survivors are Characters in Dead by Daylight that try to escape from the Entity's Realms while trying to avoid being killed and sacrificed to it by the Killers.

The primary objective of a Survivor in a trial is to escape. In order to do so, Survivors must complete the following steps:

  • Repair 5 Generators to power the 2 Exit Gates.
  • Open at least one of the 2 Exit Gates by holding down the lever on its switch box for 20 seconds.
  • Leave the trial area.

Meanwhile, the Killer will be trying to locate, catch and hook Survivors in order to sacrifice them to The Entity.
Even though Survivors are vulnerable, they have a very useful set of core abilities to hide and escape from the Killer.

It is highly recommended to read up on Killers and their abilities as well to fully understand the extent of their Powers.
