This article is an overview of all Maps featured in Dead by Daylight. For other uses, see Map (disambiguation).

Maps are a type of Item IconHelp items.png The Survivors IconHelpLoading survivor.png can use in Dead by Daylight IconHelp DBDlogo.png.


Overview[edit | edit source]

Maps are used to track and reveal the Auras IconHelp auras.png of Props located throughout the Trial Grounds.

Tracking objects is a passive ability of the Map and merely requires to come within a certain distance (by default 8 metres) of a track-able Prop for it to get added to the Map.


Original Map[edit | edit source]

The original and only Map up to Patch 1.1.2:

Map (Item)}}
Map (Item) An old piece of parchment made out of a skin-like material. Is rolled and sealed with an uncoloured leather string. Holding and channelling the Map unlocks great potential in one's Aura-reading ability which slowly burns the Map. Generators' Auras which you have already encountered are revealed to you for as long as the Map has charges left.
  • 20 seconds of use.
  • Starts with 1 object tracked.
  • Unlocks the ability to track Generators IconHelpLoading generators.png within a range of 8 metres.
  • Unlocks the ability to track Chests IconHelp chests.png revealed by Detective's Hunch IconPerks detectivesHunch.png.


New Map[edit | edit source]

Patch 1.1.2 added the Rainbow Map as a new variation to the Game:

Rainbow Map}}
Rainbow Map A piece of parchment made out of oddly fresh skin. Blood on its edge has yet to dry. It is rolled and sealed with multiple coloured ropes and cords. Holding and channelling the Map unlocks a great potential in one's Aura-reading ability which slowly burns up the Map. Objects with Auras which you have already encountered are revealed to you for as long as the Map has charges left.

"It disheartens me. All this unspeakable knowledge and gruelling effort and yet nothing tangible, nothing usable to get out of this nightmare." — Vigo's Journal

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • During the early months after release, Players frequently joked about the in-game icon for the Map looking a bit like a Burrito.
    • This inspired the Developers to name the Survivor's fourth Community Challenge during the 1 Year Anniversary "Stuffed Burrito".
