Dbd-journal-hillbilly.png Quotes left.png A most terrible man to behold. His physique is all twisted and disfigured as of by some awful accident. He carries a deadly and cruel chainsaw which he wields with devastating violence, seemingly imbuing him with a superhuman speed for a while. His advantage is also a weakness as the loud noise can give away his position. So I have tried to heighten my sense of sound. Honing in on any sound that is not stemming from nature. Quotes right.png

Max Thompson Jr. or "The Hillbilly" is one of 25 Killers IconHelpLoading killer.png currently featured in Dead by Daylight IconHelp DBDlogo.png.

He was introduced as a member of the original Killer Trio that released with the Game on 14 June 2016.


Overview

The Hillbilly is a high-mobility Killer, able to cover large distances in a short amount of time and instantly down Survivors using his Chainsaw.

His personal Perks, Enduring IconPerks enduring.png, Lightborn IconPerks lightborn.png, and Tinkerer IconPerks tinkerer.png, allow him to enhance his Power and make him harder to lose during chases.

He is about persistence and resilience. This will make it harder for Survivors to foil him.

Difficulty rating: Easy
(based on the amount of time and effort that is required to properly learn to play him and use his Power effectively)


Lore

AK HI charPreview.png
Additional Lore can be found in Tome V - Unleashed: A Man Named Boy.

The son of wealthy landowners Max Thompson Sr. and Evelyn Thompson, this unnamed boy was an unwanted child born to savage parents. Hideously disfigured, he was shut away from society. So ashamed of their son, they bricked him off into a room and fed him through a hole in the wall. When the boy escaped, he took his revenge savagely and terribly, slaughtering the parents that had tortured him instead of raising him.

After the deed was done, he continued to live his life at the farm, taking out his deranged violence on the animals that were allowed to run free. As he finally broke free from his shackles he ran through the cornfields, chasing and slaughtering whatever he could find. They never found the bodies of Max and Evelyn, but they did find tortured and disembowelled animals all over the farm.

Coldwind Farm was quickly settled and the land split up and sold off. There was never a buyer for the farmhouse. Perhaps it was the sound of the chainsaw you could hear throughout those hot summer nights.

Crooked Weapon01.png

The Hammer is the primary weapon of the Hillbilly. The cattle hammer deals a sharp blow to the skull as the most effective manner of slaughter.

Weapon Trivia

  • After The Hillbilly successfully hit a Survivor, during the hit cool-down, he twists the hammer while holding it up into the air, thus making sure to use the other side of the hammer for the next hit and letting the blood drip off of it.

The Hillbilly is currently part of 1 DLC:


History

Up to Patch 4.1.0

CHAINSAW:

  • Break into a crazed Chainsaw Sprint upon activation, moving at tremendously increased speed (9.2 m/s).
  • Survivors hit by the Chainsaw are automatically put into the Dying State IconHelp dying.png.

Power Trivia:

  • The default Time penalty for bumping into objects lasts for 3 seconds.
  • The default Charge time takes 2.5 seconds.
  • The default Cool-down time lasts for 3 seconds.
  • The Chainsaw Noise can be heard within 60 metres.


Change Log

Patch 4.1.0

  • Rework: reworked The Chainsaw IconPowers chainsaw.png and the majority of its Add-ons IconHelp addons.png.
  • Added a unique Chase and Menu Theme for The Hillbilly.
  • Added an audio cue, causing The Hillbilly to roar when starting to Chainsaw Sprint.

Patch 4.1.1

  • Rebalancing: several balance changes and improvements to the newly reworked Add-ons.

Patch 4.1.2

  • Rebalancing: lowered the Heat dissipation from -5 c/s to -3.5 c/s.

Patch 4.7.0

  • Quality of Life: the Chainsaw now continuously revs while in the Charge state.


Trivia

  • In the original Lore with the Game's release, The Hillbilly is referred to as an unnamed child, but the official Art Book revealed it to be "Max Thompson", same as his father.
    • Memory 3729 in Tome V - Unleashed subsequently revealed that The Hillbilly had longed to have been named the same as his father and eventually took on the name by his own volition, despite his parents never having called him any name, having just referred to him as "Boy".
  • The Hillbilly is based on Leatherface, both having similarly disfigured faces and wielding Hammers and Chainsaws.
    • The Developers originally wanted to have Leatherface in the game, but obtaining the licence was not an option at that point during development.
  • According to the Manual, The Hillbilly had killed his parents, which was confirmed by Memories 3729 and 3730 in Tome V - Unleashed, but the site contradicts itself on whether or not their bodies were found.
    • The Coldwind Farm Lore states: "...remains were discovered in the basement, both from Mr and Mrs Adams together with livestock".
      • It should be noted here that the family name "Adams" was likely a Work in Progress name for the Thompsons and that "Mr and Mrs Adams" here actually refers to Max and Evelyn Thompson.
    • The Hillbilly's Lore states: "they never found the bodies of Max and Evelyn, but they did find tortured and disembowelled animals, all over the farm."
  • Benedict Baker's journal entry about The Hillbilly makes little sense as the first hand-held, motorised Chainsaws weren't invented until in 1918 and thus a man that, according to Baker, was taken into the Entity's Realm in 1896 should not know about their existence, let alone how to use one.
  • The Hillbilly was the first Killer with an ability that allowed him to instantly put a Survivor into the Dying State IconHelp dying.png.
  • The Hillbilly limps when he walks and hunches over when he stands. However, when breaking a Pallet or damaging a Generator, his posture is completely straight as this interaction uses a default animation for most Killers.
  • The Hillbilly's Theme music is a remix of the All Hallows' Eve Theme music from around Halloween 2017.
    • The Hillbilly's version adds a new melody line on top of the otherwise same accompaniment.
