Glyphs are special Props featured in Dead by Daylight IconHelp DBDlogo.png.

Their first variation, the Red Glyph, was introduced with Tome VI - Divergence in Patch 4.5.0.


Overview[edit | edit source]

Glyphs are special Props that are only generated when a Player has a Glyph Challenge selected, which are available from Tome VI - Divergence onwards.

They have the appearance of a coloured crystal floating in mid-air and are invisible until approached by the Player, who has the challenge selected.
Only that Player can interact with it.

A Player can interact and "commune" with a Glyph by holding the Action button, which will play a short animation.
The Glyph disappears after a successful commune.

Currently, there exist 2 variations:

Challenge Associated Tomes Availability Glyph Type
Glyph Seeker Tome VI - Divergence & Tome VII - Forsaken IconHelpLoading killer.png & IconHelpLoading survivor.png Red Glyph
Glyph Communer Tome VII - Forsaken IconHelpLoading survivor.png Blue Glyph


General Behaviour[edit | edit source]

  • Only 1 Glyph spawns per Trial per Player with the Challenge selected.
  • Each Glyph is personal and cannot be interacted with or discovered by other Players.
    • However, other Players can see your Glyph while you commune with it.

Red Glyph Behaviour[edit | edit source]

The Glyph Seeker Challenge is available to all Players:

  • Interaction time for Killers: 1.5 seconds
  • Interaction time for Survivors: 3 seconds
  • Visibility range: 8 metres

Blue Glyph Behaviour[edit | edit source]

The Glyph Communer Challenge is only available to Survivors:

  • Interaction time: 3 seconds
  • Visibility range: 10 metres
  • Penalty duration: 60 seconds
    • After communing with a Blue Glyph, the Survivor suffers from either the Blindness IconStatusEffects vision.png or the Oblivious IconStatusEffects oblivious.png Status Effect.
