|The meat. It bleeds.|
|~ The Voices|
Bleeding is a Game Mechanic featured in Dead by Daylight .
Survivors in either the Injured or Dying State , or afflicted by Deep Wound , 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 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 and is silent.
On darker Maps, Blood is rather difficult to discern from the floor textures, especially in patches of grass. Bloodhound greatly increases the visibility of Blood, thus making it easier to track Bleeding Survivors.
Bleeding is related to the Status Effect Haemorrhage .
