William "Bill" Overbeck is one of 11 Survivors in Dead by Daylight IconHelp DBDlogo.png

He was featured as a part of the "Left Behind".

He is also a character from the popular 2008 zombie game, Left 4 Dead

He doesn't appear on the console version of the game.


It took two tours in Vietnam, a handful of medals, a knee full of shrapnel, and an honourable discharge to get William "Bill" Overbeck to stop fighting and try to live a peaceful life. He hated it. After decades spent drifting aimlessly through dead end jobs, Bill went in for a routine surgery and woke up to find the world he knew was gone. A plague was turning normal people into mindless killing machines. Naturally, the first thing he did was fight his way home and put on his uniform. Making his way through rural ghost towns and pitch-black forests, he found other Survivors, and together they fled from the infected hordes. In the end, Bill sacrificed himself to ensure their safety. His body was never found. Bill was left for dead. No one knows that he still has the only thing he ever wanted: an enemy to fight.

You are fuelled with an unexpected energy when saving an ally from a hook within the Killer's Terror Radius. Once per match, for 15 seconds after unhooking a Survivor within the Killer's Terror Radius, any damage taken that would put you or the unhooked Survivor into the dying state will instead trigger a 15/20/25 seconds bleed-out timer. Taking any damage during or reaching the end of the bleed-out timer will put you into the Dying State IconHelp dying.png.
