The SAW™ Chapter is a Chapter for Dead by Daylight.

Life is the most precious thing we have. A gift we are given, but a gift some squander. We need to be alive and not just exist. This is where The Pig steps in - a teacher that provides those selected with an opportunity to appreciate life yet again. To fight for our own survival, or simply let go and die. David Tapp thinks otherwise. He believes that everyone is free to live their own life, without the threat of death in the shape of a trap. A seasoned detective that seeks The Pig - a search that brings him to the Gideon Meat Plant.

Puzzle me this

They say that it’s good for the human race to solve puzzles, to make use of our highly developed brain. To get some of that “positive stress”. But there’s a limit. A lethal limit where blood gets involved and we create memories of something we rather forget. The Pig is the puzzle master, and we are the test subjects.

The SAW™ Chapter™ is a Chapter for Dead by Daylight. It includes a new Killer, a Survivor and a Map.

Killer: The Pig[]

The Pig's Info[]

FK charSelect portrait

The Pig

The Pig is a disciple of a mastermind known to the world as Jigsaw. In both The Pig and Jigsaw’s minds, they believe they are doing something necessary. Something that’ll make those placed inside their devious contraptions see life for what it really is once again. There are, of course, some sacrifices one must be willing to make, if one is to survive the “lesson”. Good luck…

The Pig's Power[]

IconPowers jigsawsBaptism

"Forever devoted to her master's cause, she punished the ungrateful and the guilty with slyness and murderous puzzles.
The Pig can move stealthily, dash in Ambush attacks and put deadly Reverse Bear Traps on Survivors' heads."

The Pig starts the Trial with 4 Reverse Bear Traps equipped, which cannot be replenished once used.
Additionally, 5 Jigsaw Boxes spawn in random locations in the environment.

Press the Secondary Power button to transition into the Crouched State:

  • Grants the UndetectableIconStatusEffects undetectableIconStatusEffects undetectableIconStatusEffects undetectable Status Effect.
  • Reduces her Movement speed to 3.8 m/s.

Press the Secondary Power button again to transition out of the Crouched State.

Press and hold the Attack button while in the Crouched State to charge and perform an Ambush Dash Attack.:

  • Increases her Movement speed to 6.9 m/s for 2.3 seconds while attacking.
  • Causes The Pig to automatically exit the Crouched State.

Press the Power button while standing above a downed Survivor to attach an unarmed Inactive Reverse Bear Trap to their head.

Whenever a GeneratorIconHelpLoading generatorsIconHelpLoading generatorsIconHelpLoading generators is completed, all currently Inactive Reverse Bear Traps are activated.

Active Reverse Bear Traps are armed and on a Death Timer of 150 seconds, which is displayed on the Survivor's Status icon.

Once the Death Timer elapses, the trap snaps open and kills the Trapped Survivor.
The Death Timer is paused whenever that Survivor is downed, hooked, or actively being chased by The Pig.

Trapped Survivors may only leave the Trial normally if their trap is inactive.
Attempting to leave through the Exit GatesIconHelp exitGatesIconHelp exitGatesIconHelp exitGates with an active trap will trigger the kill mechanism and execute the Survivor halfway into the exit area.
They may still leave through the HatchIconHelp hatchIconHelp hatchIconHelp hatch.

Survivors can remove a Reverse Bear Trap by interacting with a Jigsaw BoxIconHelp jigsawBoxesIconHelp jigsawBoxesIconHelp jigsawBoxes and finding a key.
The AurasIconHelp aurasIconHelp aurasIconHelp auras of all unsearched Jigsaw Boxes are revealed permanently to Trapped Survivors.

Trapped Survivors must randomly search between 1 to 4 Jigsaw Boxes:

  • Succeeding the search will remove and discard the Reverse Bear Trap.
  • Failing the search will cause the Jigsaw Puppet Billy to cackle at the unfortunate Survivor and hide the Aura of the Jigsaw Box.

"You will give everything to me, every cell in your body.
The marks on your arms, they're from another life.
We'll leave that life behind.
When you walk down that corridor there is no turning back.
Do you understand that?" — Jigsaw's Baptism

The Pig's Perks[]

The focus of The Pig’s Perks is on pain and torture. A Hook is not that easy to flee from and all Survivors will be seriously tested when it comes to Skill Checks.
