|About the descriptions used on the Dead by Daylight Wiki
Differences to in-game descriptions: It is this Wiki's philosophy that information provided to the knowledge-seeking Players of Dead by Daylight should be as easily understandable as possible. The Wiki Guardians therefore take the liberty to rephrase and/or reword descriptions in cases of the actual effect differing from the description (e.g. time vs speed) or in cases of the original phrasing being sub-optimal, making it potentially difficult to understand without additional explanation.
Mouse-over Support: On desktop browsers, the Wiki supports mouse-over functionality for the modifier words used in the description of most Unlockables (slightly / moderately / considerably / tremendously).
On mobile browsers, the values are displayed in small text after the modifier words. Desktop users experiencing issues with the mouse-over may temporarily switch to mobile view at the bottom of an Article page.

|~ Mysterious Note|
There are currently a total of 25 (+1) Items featured in Dead by Daylight :
|5||Very Rare Items|
|2||Ultra Rare Items|
All Items have a set amount of Charges that are usually depleted at a modifiable rate of 1 Charge per second. Once an Item's Charges have been used up, the Item will become unusable for the remainder of the Trial.
- Main Article: Add-ons
Add-ons allow Survivors to change various properties of an Item. Up to 2 Add-ons may be equipped with an Item.
- For additional information, see Chests
The rarity of an Item affects how often it can be found in a Chest. Players will generally find more Common and Uncommon Items than their rarer counterparts. It is possible to get Ultra Rare Items from a Chest, but the chance is very slim (around 2%, as determined by Community testing).
One can increase the chances of finding rarer Items by using Plunderer's Instinct .
If a Survivor manages to escape with an Item, it will be kept in their inventory and auto-equipped for the next Trial. However, any equipped Add-ons will always be used up.
If a Survivor dies during a Trial without the White Ward Offering, their Item and any attached Add-ons will be lost.
Below is a list of all Items currently featured in Dead by Daylight :
|Chinese Firecracker||A row of small explosive devices wrapped in heavy paper casing. Detonates into loud bangs and intense light flashes.
|Winter Party Starter||A small, highly-explosive dinner table decoration. Detonates into loud bangs and intense light flashes.
|Third Year Party Starter||A small, highly-explosive dinner table decoration. Detonates into loud bangs and intense light flashes, and playful confetti.

The Flashlight is also very effective against three Killers, The Hag , The Wraith , and The Nurse . Shining a Flashlight upon a Wraith when he is cloaked or in the act of uncloaking will trigger the light burn effect, stunning him for a few seconds and forcing an instant uncloak. Shining a Flashlight upon one of the Hag's Phantasm Traps will highlight and destroy it. Shining a Flashlight upon the Nurse while she is charging up a blink will trigger the light burn effect, causing her to go straight into the fatigue from the blink.
|Flashlight (Item)||A standard Flashlight.
"Most of the battery life was wastefully used by the previous owner."
|Sport Flashlight||A very portable Flashlight with a good grip. Its efficient technology produces a powerful light while consuming less power.

|Will O' Wisp||A Flashlight equipped with a special lens cover that adds an orange tint and a little Ghost to the beam.
