Dead By Daylight Killers: Everything You Need To Know

Dead By Daylight is a 4v1 online mutliplayer survival horror game by Behaviour Interactive. The Dead By Daylight killers are both original and created for this game, as well as killers from various horror franchises. Only a couple of the killers actually come with the base game, but when it comes to the rest you either need to buy their chapter (which often comes with a killer, survivor and a map) or get the Killers Expansion pack. But don’t worry, we’ve got all the details – like where to get them and a summary of their lore – right here for you!

Survivors aim to repair the generators and escape from the exit gates. However, as a killer, it’s up to you to stop them and make the survivors suffer. Track survivors by looking at their scratch marks and injured survivors leave trials of blood. Slow down the survivors progress by damaging a generator. One basic attack injures a survivor. But if you’re not quick to attack again, the survivors heals from a teammate. A second attack sends them into a dying state. Hooking a survivor in the dying state will allow the killer to eliminate the survivors one by one. Although, this isn’t easy because killers have a slower movement speed and action speed compared to the survivors. And survivors have a third person POV, whilst the killer has first person, which gives them a greater field of view.

Killers and survivors have teachable perks and each character has unique perks, for example Territorial Imperative is unique to the Huntress. There are also status effects which impact the gameplay, for example killers can have the Undetectable status effect.

Dead By Daylight Killers: Originals

All of the original killers (excluding The Artist) that aren’t included in the base game are available in a Killer Expansion pack. Alternatively, you could purchase their individual chapters if there is a specific character you just love. You can either buy the chapters using real money or by using in-game currency (Iridescent Shards).

Check out the Killer Expansion pack below:

Honoring his family name was never enough for Kazan Yamaoka. He wanted to surpass his father’s reputation and end what he saw as the thinning of samurai culture. Ignoring his father’s advice and borrowing his Katana, he embarked on a dark pilgrimage to prove his worth and rid Japan of impostors. The killings were brutal, cruel, and morbid. He became known as Oni-Yamaoka, an insult to both Kazan and his family. So, he decided to butcher anyone who dared to call him that name.

Without a word, the samurai attacked and quickly secured the upper hand. But he hesitated. With a devastating blow, Kazan crushed the samurai’s head and cracked his helmet. As Kazan approached the fallen samurai, he saw his father’s face.

It was the beginning of a dark legend about a rageful Oni haunting the town.

The Deathslinger (Caleb Quinn)

  • Power: The Redeemer
  • Weapon: Death to Bayshore
  • Realm: Grave of Glenvale

Born in the dust-ridden badlands of the American Midwest, Caleb Quinn was the son of struggling Irish immigrants. Caleb’s father was once an engineer, but there was nowhere for him to work. He noticed Caleb’s interest in the trade and gifted him his old wrench. Caleb designed quaint devices under his father’s guidance, but once his back was turned, Caleb’s creations became violent. He hid plans for a mask that would gouge barbed needles into a human’s eyes and rip them from their sockets, with sketches of it fitted on boys who bullied him.

With age, Caleb’s engineering abilities became marketable and employers put their discrimination aside. Henry Bayshore, the owner of United West Rail, hired him. Caleb first invented a gun that shot railroad spikes into the ground, then a steam-powered tunneling drill. But as Bayshore feigned indifference, the devices began turning up at other companies, the patents stolen from Caleb and sold. Rage overwhelming him, he burst into Bayshore’s office and smashed his face into a bloody stew. As he was pulled away, he pushed his specialized gun to his boss’ gut and squeezed the trigger.

The only thing that saved Caleb from hanging was Bayshore’s unlikely survival. For fifteen years, Caleb was confined to Hellshire Penitentiary, the nation’s first private prison. He befriended a prison warden and formed The Hellshire Gang. After his release, Henry Bayshore bought the prison and Caleb had been betrayed by the warden. Full of rage, Caleb and his posse swarmed the warden and Bayshore, dragging them out to the prisoners to finish the job. Caleb returned to his old cell and followed a dusty path, leaving a trail of blood behind him.

The Blight (Talbot Grimes)

What started out as a child’s curiosity nearly turned deadly after experimenting with a patch of poisonous foxglove. When he recovered, it wasn’t fear that gripped him, it was fascination.

In time, he completed one of his greatest achievements: a chemical that could increase a worker’s productivity while reducing their need for rest. He was rewarded with a secret laboratory beneath a prison camp.

There, prisoners became his unwilling subjects, leading to a drug that allowed soldiers to withstand incredible amounts of pain. Although there were rumors that one of the side effects was insanity, causing soldiers to massacre villages. But Talbot refused to blame himself. After being kidnapped, he discovers that his productivity drug had killed an entire factory’s worth of workers. He was thrown into the mass grave and left for dead. But he nursed back to health in a mysterious ancient school posing as a monastery. And his knowledge was indispensable. However, as he was reaching his breakthrough, the monks changed.

He woke in an opium den. Before he noticed the robed figure appear behind him, a needle plunged into his arm and the world disappeared once more. Desperate, he carved his research from memory into the walls. He wrote until his fingers bled, listening to a whispering voice. When there was nowhere left to write, he gripped the stone and carved the message into his chest. A field of flowers appeared before him and the voice beckoned him. On the walls, there was but one single line, written over and over without end: Death is only the beginning.

The Trickster (Hak Ji-Woon)

Hak Ji-Woon hit the track to stardom. Yun-Jin Lee, a producer at Mightee One Entertainment, recruited Ji-Woon into her training program. Eventually, he was selected to join the band NO SPIN, and fame was immediate. Each day was an affirmation that he was greater than the mediocrity society spewed out. But he realized that his fans’ attention was split five ways, thinned out between each member.

After a lengthy lunch break, he returned to the studio to discover fate had granted him a gift. The scent of burning wires was unmistakable. He rushed to the control room, finding the door blocked by fallen speakers. On the other side, his bandmates pounded on the door, their cries accompanied by the crackling of flames. They were screaming his name as they burnt. Screaming for him to save them. But he didn’t. And Ji-Woon became celebrated as a tragic figure. He was reborn as The Trickster, a solo artist who produced his own songs.

His victims had to be abducted, driven to an abandoned building where he could let their voices carry unrestrained emotion. Ji-Woon recorded each session, synthesizing and working them into his songs, hiding them behind layers of melodies. And he was proud of his work. He left hints for the police – a mink boa from a recent photoshoot wrapped around one victim’s slashed throat. Until it was decided that he could no longer self-produce his songs.

He had three months until he was to perform a private show for Mightee One’s board members; three months to plan his magnum opus. He got canisters of nitrous oxide, and upon his arrival to perform, half-conscious bodies were splayed in their seats and crawling across the floor. Working quickly, binding everyone, except Yun-Jin. He propped her up as the lone audience member, prying her eyes open to watch as he tortured the rest of them. As he silenced the last one, the fog swept in. Promising Ji-Woon an encore on a grand stage.

On the bleak morning of Matias’ birthday, Carmina walked to a narrow bridge several blocks away from home. Locals had nicknamed the spot DeathLeap. Several cars drove by Carmina, but none stopped. No one seemed to care. She climbed over the railing and her legs wobbled as she stood on the lip of the bridge. Suddenly, a cacophony of caws filled the sky. Carmina opened her eyes and saw a black cloud of feathers flying towards her. Soon, a flock of crows was covering the railing of the bridge, staying close to her. The crows seemed to care about her wellbeing, so she returned home and began to paint her experience.

Eventually, her performances grew bold and drew the attention of artists who found her style invigorating. She grew close to a group of painters who understood her. Until one piece sparked a radical debate about corruption. The controversy painted a target on Carmina’s back. She took refuge in her father’s house with some friends. That night, masked gunmen broke in and kidnapped them. She awoke seated in the middle of a desert. A robbed man cut off her hands and pulled out her tongue.
