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 V and VI, 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[]

K09 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.
When putting a Survivor into the Dying State IconHelp dying.png with your Basic Attack:
  • Their Aura IconHelp auras.png is not revealed to any Survivor farther away from them than 32/24/16 metres.
  • For the next 15 seconds, the dying Survivor suffers from a decreased Field of View, the Blindness IconStatusEffects vision.png Status Effect, and crawls 50 % slower.

"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 Entity IconHelp entity.png unlocks potential in one's Aura-reading ability.
After hooking a Survivor, all other Survivors' Auras IconHelp auras.png are revealed to you for 4 seconds when they are farther than 40 metres from the Hook IconHelpLoading hook.png
  • Each time a Survivor is hooked for the first time, gain a stack-able 25 % bonus to all Bloodpoint gains, up to a maximum of 50/75/100 %.

The bonus Bloodpoints IconHelp bloodpoints.png are only awarded post-Trial.
"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 regular Items IconHelp items.png or Limited Items on impact.
  • If not recovered within 150/120/90 seconds, the lost Items will have their Charges depleted by The Entity IconHelp entity.png.
  • The Auras IconHelp 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.
