Bleeding is a Game Mechanic featured in Dead by Daylight IconHelp DBDlogo.png.


Survivors IconHelpLoading survivor.png in either the Injured IconHelp injured.png or Dying State IconHelp dying.png, or afflicted by Deep Wound IconStatusEffects deepWound.png, are affected with Bleeding.
They leave pools of blood trailing after them until they are healed, unless they are using a Perk that prevents this.
The Killer IconHelpLoading killer.png is notified when bleeding Survivors have been healed by a displayed in-game Score Event.

Apt Killers can use the blood pools to track down an injured Survivor, which is especially useful if the Survivor has Iron Will IconPerks ironWill.png and is silent.

On darker Maps, Blood IconStatusEffects bleeding.png is rather difficult to discern from the floor textures, especially in patches of grass. Bloodhound IconPerks bloodhound.png greatly increases the visibility of Blood, thus making it easier to track Bleeding Survivors.

Bleeding is related to the Status Effect Haemorrhage IconStatusEffects bleeding.png.
