- This article is an overview of all Flashlights featured in Dead by Daylight.
For other uses, see Flashlight (disambiguation).
Overview[edit | edit source]
The main use for Flashlights is to temporarily blind the Killer.
Blinding the Killer while they are carrying a Survivor will stun them for a few seconds and release the carried Survivor from their shoulder back to the Injured State.
The Flashlight Beam reaches 10 metres by default.
The Blind duration lasts for 2 seconds by default.
Killers are unable to perform a Lunge Attack while blinded.
In case of some Killers, Flashlights have special interactions:
- Shining a Flashlight upon a cloaked Wraith will trigger the Lightburn effect after a few seconds, momentarily stunning him and forcing him out of his cloak.
- Shining a Flashlight will reveal the Aura of any Phantasm Traps The Hag might have placed in the vicinity. Aiming the Flashlight directly at a Trap Aura will destroy the Trap without triggering it after few seconds.
- Shining a Flashlight upon The Nurse while she is charging her Blink (regardless of whether that is her initial or a Chain Blink) will trigger the Lightburn effect after a few seconds, causing her to go straight into the Fatigue state.
- Shining a Flashlight upon The Spirit's Husk while she is phase-walking will cause the Husk to disappear after a few seconds and with it any potential effects induced by the Husk's Terror Radius.
- Blinding The Legion mid-Frenzy will cancel Feral Frenzy without applying the associated cool-down, allowing The Legion to attack immediately, which despite being blinded can injure the Flashlight user.
