Nancy Wheeler is one of 24 Survivors IconHelpLoading survivor.png currently featured in Dead by Daylight IconHelp DBDlogo.png.

She was introduced as the first Survivor of CHAPTER XIII: Stranger Things, a Chapter DLC released on 17 September 2019.

She originates from the 2016 Sci-Fi-Horror Web Television series Stranger Things.


Nancy Wheeler is an aspiring journalist, able to make acute observations and gain insights that others may miss.

Her personal Perks, Better Together IconPerks betterTogether.png, Fixated IconPerks fixated.png, and Inner Strength IconPerks innerStrength.png, give her the information and courage she needs to tackle unexpected challenges.

Difficulty rating: Easy
(based on only using her Unique Perks)


StoreBackground QF.png

Studious and rebellious, Nancy Wheeler is a stubborn investigator with an instinct for a good story. When her closest friend, Barb went missing, she did everything she could to unravel the truth and secure justice. A brilliant journalist, she chases stories and follows leads despite the inequality and chauvinism she encounters at the workplace. Pursuing a lead one evening, she fearlessly approaches the Hawkins National Laboratory before suddenly losing consciousness. A moment later she awakens in a strange misty realm with the sound of a familiar roar echoing through the air.

Nancy's Perks

These are Perks which start off only appearing in Nancy's Bloodweb IconHelp bloodweb.png. After achieving Level 30, Teachable versions of these Perks can be found:

  • Better Together - Level 30
  • Fixated - Level 35
  • Inner Strength - Level 40

Once obtained, other Survivors will be able to find Nancy's Perks in their respective Bloodwebs from that point onwards.

Better Together

You seek justice and uncover the truth no matter what obstacle stands in your way.

The Aura IconHelp auras.png of the Generator you are currently repairing is revealed to all other Survivors located within 32 metres.

If the Killer downs a Survivor while you are repairing a Generator IconHelpLoading generators.png, you see the Auras of all other Survivors for 8/9/10 seconds.

"Let's burn that lab to the ground." — Nancy Wheeler


When you have a goal in mind, there's no turning back; better to ask forgiveness than permission. You can see your own Scratch Marks IconHelp scratchMarks.png at all times and walk 10/15/20 % faster when uninjured.

"I wanna finish what we started. I want to kill it." — Nancy Wheeler

Inner Strength

You look inwards and trust your instincts when you feel lost and alone.

Each time you cleanse a Totem IconHelpLoading totem.png, Inner Strength activates.

While Inner Strength is activated, hiding inside a Locker IconHelp lockers.png for 10/9/8 seconds when in the Injured State IconHelp injured.png or afflicted by the Deep Wound IconStatusEffects deepWound.png Status Effect will automatically heal you one Health State.

Inner Strength does not activate if you are afflicted by the Broken IconStatusEffects broken.png Status Effect.

"All this time I've been trying so hard to pretend like everything's fine, but it's not." — Nancy Wheeler
