Dbd-journal-killers Quotes left These things differ from time to time. But each acts in a similar manner, and with similar human physical traits. But they are more reminiscent of beasts of burden even though I can spot some flicker of humanity. With scars and marks on their skin and body. As if they have been self-mutilating themselves. They even look dead. I fail to see some humanity in them. They are bent on finding me. But somehow they refrain from killing me. Instead I am hung from one of those dreaded hooks. I keep asking myself why they do not snuff the life out me themselves. But someone must control them. Might they do someone else’s biddings?

I keep trying to understand them at the same time as they stalk me. I try finding something that can pinpoint their purpose. I wonder if they might be punished? But in that case, am not I in the same position? Being punished for something, as I try to escape and find some way out of here. They play their role. Without any diversions, they are like a machine that is set on finding any living soul. Are they without hope? Who do they serve? Is there even a master? I have never seen them rest or stop. They hunt until the hooks are occupied. But where do they go after that? Trying to find some answers is one of the few things that keep me sane. For now. If you stumble upon one of these beings you must run and you must hide. Without any sound.''

~ Benedict Baker

The Killers have been tasked by The EntityIconHelp entityIconHelp entityIconHelp entity to hunt down and sacrifice every SurvivorIconHelpLoading survivorIconHelpLoading survivorIconHelpLoading survivor before they can escape.
In order to achieve this objective, a Killer should do the following:

  • Patrol the area and find Survivors.
  • Chase, injure and catch Survivors before they escape.
  • Carry Survivors to a sacrificial Hook and hang them there for The Entity to consume.

Meanwhile, Survivors will be attempting to repair five GeneratorsIconHelpLoading generatorsIconHelpLoading generatorsIconHelpLoading generators in order to power the 2 Exit GatesIconHelp exitGatesIconHelp exitGatesIconHelp exitGates and make their escape. Killers should do everything in their power to stop them.


Modus Operandi

According to The ObserverIconHelp archivesGeneralIconHelp archivesGeneralIconHelp archivesGeneral in Arcus 07, the Killers reign within the countless Realms of The Entity's dimension.
He describes them as twisted souls that act as The Entity's tools of hate, rage, and pain to reap horror and make merry hell for everyone.

The Killers are aware that something is amiss, but according to The Observer, they do not care, as what The Entity is providing them is still much better than whatever used to be.

The Entity also grants them the freedom to be morbid kings of their own personal hell, as long as they continue to serve her diligently.
The Killers who refuse their crown, and therefore refuse to be "Kings of Terror and Torment", will be corrupted into submission by The Entity.

Beginner's Guide: Hunt As A Killer


Trivia

  • In the game files, the Killers are being referred to as "Slashers", likely due to them being inspired by 80s Slasher Horror movies.
  • Benedict Baker contradicts himself in his writings about the Killers. He first says: "But they are more reminiscent of beasts of burden even though I can spot some flicker of humanity". Then later in the exact same paragraph states "I fail to see some humanity in them".
