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


Survivors IconHelpLoading survivor.png in the Injured IconHelp injured.png or Dying State IconHelp dying.png are affected with Bleeding. They leave behind pools of blood until they are healed, unless they are using No Mither IconPerks noMither.png. 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 Hemorrhage Unknown QuestionMark.png.

Unlockables affecting Bleeding

Bloodhound}} Bloodhound

Like a hunting scent hound, you smell traces of blood at a great distance.

Pools of Blood IconStatusEffects bleeding.png are shown in bright red and can be tracked for 2/3/4 seconds longer than normal.

"Pebbles shimmering in the moonlight; my life drips down in a trail so easy to follow."

No Mither}} No Mither

Go on out, kid, it is just a scratch.

You suffer from the Broken IconStatusEffects broken.png Status Effect for the entire Trial.

  • Bleeding IconStatusEffects bleeding.png is suppressed at all times.
  • When injured or dying, Grunts of Pain are reduced by 0/25/50 %.
  • You can completely recover from the Dying State IconHelp dying.png.

"I lost it. Just lamped him one. They went and banned me didn't they. Went t'pub afterwards, had a few pints and moved on to the next chapter. I couldn't be mithered with it all anyway, you know what I mean? Can't be arsed." — David King

Sloppy Butcher}} Sloppy Butcher

You know where to hit to make them bleed.

Wounds inflicted by Basic Attacks cause Survivors to suffer from the Haemorrhage IconStatusEffects bleeding.png and Mangled IconStatusEffects mangled.png Status Effects:

  • Haemorrhage increases the Survivor's Bleeding frequency by 50/75/100 %.
  • Both Status Effects are removed once the Survivor is fully healed.

"It's in its sadistic nature. There is no swift kill as it delights in the obscene spectacle of our agonising suffering."

Vigil}} Vigil

You look over your friends even in dire situations.

You recover 10/15/20 % faster from the Blindness IconStatusEffects vision.png, Exhaustion IconStatusEffects exhausted.png, Haemorrhage IconStatusEffects bleeding.png, and Hindered IconStatusEffects hindered.png Status Effects.

  • This effect also applies to all other Survivors within 8 metres of you and lingers for 15 seconds.

"I'm gonna be here when you wake up. You're gonna make it." — Quentin Smith
