CHAPTER 3: Of Flesh and Mud is the third Chapter DLC for Dead by Daylight.

This DLC features:


You are cursed.

Of Flesh and Mud is the third Chapter for Dead by Daylight. Prepare for dark hexes and flesh made out of mud and decay, if you dare enter Backwater Swamp and live through the horror it brings. A new Killer - The Hag - awaits you in the waterland area and you will meet a new Survivor: Ace Visconti.

A Hag driven to madness by being devoured alive piece by piece. A Survivor that believes luck is always on his side. A wetland with scorched shacks, an eerie mud maze and a rusting boat graveyard lays ahead of you, so tread carefully.

Killer: The Hag[]

Main article: Lisa Sherwood

Killer's Info[]

HA charSelect portrait.png

Haunted by The Hag

The unspeakable torment Lisa Sherwood endured twisted her mind and carved in the memory of pain in her bones. She had a choice, to flee or to turn on her tormentors. Her last deed drove her into darkness.

From Dust to Dust

Source of The Hag's power, a blackened finger used as a catalyst to her terrible power: the Phantasm Traps. The Hag draws in the soil to set a trap for the survivors. When a survivor finds her trap, a lifelike illusion of the killer appears in front of them. Once the trap is triggered, The Hag has a choice. To enter the physical illusion when the survivors are within her reach or use it as a decoy to take down her unsuspecting prey before the phantasm collapses into pieces of dirt and mud.

Killer's Perks[]

The Hag perks revolve around a new gameplay mechanic: the Hex totems. They are focused on cursing the survivors and sapping their abilities.

Hex: The Third Seal Hex: The Third Seal
A Hex that hinders the Survivors' Aura-reading abilities.

The last 2/3/4 Survivors hit with either your Basic Attack or Special Attack suffer from the BlindnessIconStatusEffects vision.png Status Effect.

The Hex effects persist until its Hex TotemIconHelpLoading totem.png is cleansed.

"She touched your skin, you bear the witch's mark!"

Hex: Ruin Hex: Ruin
A Hex that affects the Generator Repair progress of all Survivors.
  • Whenever a GeneratorIconHelpLoading generators.png is not being repaired by a Survivor, it will immediately and automatically regress its Repair progress at 50/75/100 % of the normal Regression speed.
  • Once any Survivor is killed by any means, Hex: Ruin deactivates and reverts its Hex Totem into a Dull Totem.

The Hex effects persist until its Hex TotemIconHelpLoading totem.png is cleansed.

"A curse is upon you. It will cause your ruin."

Hex: Devour Hope Hex: Devour Hope
A Hex rooting its power on hope.

The false hope of Survivors ignites your hunger.
Each time a SurvivorIconHelpLoading survivor.png is rescued from a Hook when you are at least 24 metres away, Hex: Devour Hope receives 1 Token:

  • 2 Tokens: 10 seconds after hooking a Survivor, gain a 3/4/5 % HasteIconStatusEffects haste.png Status Effect for the next 10 seconds.
  • 3 Tokens: Survivors suffer permanently from the ExposedIconStatusEffects exposed.png Status Effect.
  • 5 Tokens: You are granted the ability to kill all Survivors by your own hand.

Survivor: Ace Visconti[]

Survivor's Info[]

AV charSelect portrait.png

Are you feeling lucky?

Ace Visconti is one charming guy. From his roots as a poor boy in Argentina, he gamed, scammed, seduced and smooth-talked his way to a life of luxury as a high roller in the land of opportunity. Money has always had a way of slipping through his fingers, but Ace simply figures he can always win more. Eventually he racked up too many debts with the wrong kind of people. But when they finally came to collect, Ace was nowhere to be found. No one knows where he has gone, but everyone agrees on one thing: He will survive… against all odds.

Realm: Backwater Swamp[]

Main article: Backwater Swamp

Map's Info[]

IconMap Swp PaleRose.png

A feast on human flesh

It wasn’t until the authorities decided to drain the waters around the ramshackle collection of huts that the true history of Backwater Swamp began to unravel. Thirty-seven sets of human remains weighted down in the rotten swamp waters was revealed. Bodies that showed traced of being cut in and their bones carefully scraped free of flesh. As for the family that hunted in these waters, nothing was ever found of them. The buildings where they once lived were burnt and scorched and everything was covered in black ashes. The rumor claims that they torched it all to cover up their deeds, before fleeing into the darkest reaches of the swamp, to one day begin their foul hunt again.

The wreck of The Pale Rose The Pale Rose, an ancient paddle steamer in the middle of the swamp, held captive of the stagnant mud. It has been here long before the residents began their hunt, a barely visible silhouette from the nearby village. There are signs of inhabitation, particularly in the upper states room where strange, ritualistic markings in dried blood and dirt cover the floor. From the scale of the bloodletting, something horrid has taken place here.
