Lightburn is a Game Mechanic in Dead by Daylight .
This is achieved by shining the Flashlight anywhere on their body, effectively stunning and thus forcing them to momentarily stop using their ability.
The stuns are independent from blinding the Killer, it is thus possible to simultaneously burn and blind a Killer.
A burn will always force him to fully uncloak himself and screams just as if he was stunned by a Pallet .
Shining a Flashlight for ~2 seconds upon the cloaked Wraith will stun him in place for ~3 seconds.
The Wraith can counter Lightburn by hiding behind an object when uncloaking. Prior to Patch 2.2.0, using the "Blind Warrior" Add-on Series would increase his resistance against Lightburn.
Shining a Flashlight for ~2 seconds upon The Nurse while she is charging her Blink will stun her in place for ~2 seconds.
The Nurse will experience an accelerated Pallet Stun animation from her Point of View.
Shining a Flashlight on The Nurse before she is able to charge a Blink will not stun her, but cause her to be unable to charge a Blink for the duration of the Flashlight shining on her.
- A successful burn will proc the "Killer Burn" Score Event.
- Other Killers cannot interact with the Spirit World and thus do not suffer from the Lightburn mechanic.
