A Killer's default Aura-reading

A Survivor's Aura-reading

Auras are an integral Game Mechanic in Dead by Daylight IconHelp DBDlogo.png.


Overview[]

For a guide on some in-game distances to better gauge the working-radius of Aura-reading Perks, please refer to Distances.

Some Unlockables unlock potential in one's Aura-reading abilities.

Auras can be seen through any obstacles and usually across large distances. Aura-reading abilities are great for locating Allies, Enemies or Objectives.

Aura-reveal vs. Aura-Flare-ups[]

The are two main types of Auras in Dead by Daylight: Aura-reveals and Aura-Flare-ups:

Whereas Aura-reveals or just Auras are continuous and reveal not only a Survivor's location, but also their every action for their duration, Aura-Flare-ups are a mere snapshot of a Survivor's location at the time of it being triggered.
Unlike Aura-reveals, they do not relay the Survivor's actions and are always of the same red colour.


Aura Colours[]

Auras come in different colours, depending on whether the Aura is from an Objective, an Ally or an Enemy.

White Auras Red Auras Yellow Auras Various Colours Fuchsia
  • Marks Objectives:
  • Marks Survivors to the Killer
  • Marks dying or hooked Survivors to other Survivors
  • Pink: marks the Killer to Survivors
  • Beige: marks the Exit Gate IconHelp exitGates.png Switches
  • Brass: marks Killer Traps:
  • Blue: marked special Event Objectives (unused):
  • Orange: marks special Event Objectives:
    • Blighted/Cankerous Hooks & Blighted Generators (Blights)
  • Marks secondary Objectives:
    • Chests IconHelp chests.png
    • Totems IconHelpLoading totem.png (Survivors only)
    • Crown Pedestals (Anniversary Events only)

Additional Uses[]

  • In cases of Auras being used to showcase a progression of an action, the object's Aura will slowly transition from white when the action begins to red when the action has reached completion.
