PARAGRAPH II: LEATHERFACE™, also known as CHAPTER 5.5: LEATHERFACE™ was the second Paragraph DLC for Dead by Daylight IconHelp DBDlogo.png.
Since it was released in-between CHAPTERS 5 and 6, it was eventually renamed to CHAPTER 5.5 when the Developers abandoned the practice of naming single-character DLCs "Paragraphs".

This DLC features:


As the saw starts...

What happens when the body grows but the mind can't keep up? A child's fears and anxiety, but trapped inside a fully grown man's body. A furious body wielding a chainsaw? Someone who knows what happens as you disobey your family. What happens if anyone finds out what's in the stew.

Bubba's Info[]

CA charSelect portrait.png

Leatherface is not only the skin clad maniac with a disturbed mind. He seeks acceptance and appreciation. He's learned the hard way and was molded to what he now is. A watchdog, a guardian, a blind gate keeper who never questions. And all problems can be solved with his chainsaw.

The Cannibal's Perks[]

Knock Out Knock Out
The trauma caused by your brutal attacks makes crying for help painfully difficult.

Putting a Survivor into the Dying StateIconHelp dying.png with your Basic Attack blocks their AuraIconHelp auras.png from being revealed to any Survivor, who is farther than 32/24/16 metres away from them.

For the next 15 seconds, the following effects apply to the dying Survivor:

  • Reduces their Field of View and causes them to be deafened.
  • Suffers from the BlindnessIconStatusEffects vision.png Status Effect.
  • Reduces the Crawling speed by -50 %.
  • Reduces the Recovery speed by -25 %.

"Oh, that gun's no good. The old way... with a sledge! You see, that way's better. They die better that way." — Nubbins Sawyer

Barbecue & Chilli Barbecue & Chilli
A deep bond with The EntityIconHelp entity.png unlocks potential in one's Aura-reading ability.
  • After hooking a Survivor, all Survivors who are at least 60/50/40 metres away from that Hook have their AuraIconHelp auras.png revealed to you for 4 seconds.

"I just can't take no pleasure in killing. There's just some things you gotta do. Don't mean you have to like it." — Drayton Sawyer

Franklin's Demise Franklin's Demise
Your vicious Basic Attacks make Survivors drop their ItemsIconHelp items.png on impact.
  • If not recovered within 150/120/90 seconds, the lost Items will have their Charges depleted by The EntityIconHelp entity.png.
  • The AurasIconHelp auras.png of lost Items are revealed to you within 32 metres and slowly fade from white to red as the timer elapses.

"Sally, I hear something. Stop! Stop!" — Franklin Hardesty

  • CHAPTER 5.5: LEATHERFACE™ was originally going to be a full Chapter DLC, with Kate Denson being the Survivor associated with The Cannibal. However, due to severe time and resource restrictions the Developers were facing due to the release of CHAPTER VI: A Nightmare on Elm Street™ just a month later, according to them, they had to cut Kate for the time being (she was subsequently added to CHAPTER VIII: Curtain Call with The Clown IconHelpLoading clown.png) and downgrade the LEATHERFACE Chapter to just a Paragraph. This is also noticeable by The Cannibal's initial lack of personal Add-ons and sharing them with The Hillbilly with the exception of just four, which was ultimately remedied with the Hillbilly and Cannibal Rework in Patch 4.1.0.
