Pallets are interactive obstacles featured in Dead by DaylightIconHelp DBDlogoIconHelp DBDlogoIconHelp DBDlogo.


Overview

Pallets have two states: upright, and pulled-down, also referred to as "dropped".

At the start of a Trial, all Pallets are in the upright position, meaning that both the Survivors and the Killer can pass through the area next to them without needing to interact with them.
Killers are unable to interact with Pallets in this state, but Survivors have the option to pull it down and create an obstacle for the Killer that can only be vaulted by the Survivors, which is similar to vaulting a WindowIconHelp windowIconHelp windowIconHelp window.
The sole exceptions to this are The LegionIconHelpLoading legionIconHelpLoading legionIconHelpLoading legion, who can vault a dropped Pallet while using Feral Frenzy, and The MastermindIconHelpLoading mastermindIconHelpLoading mastermindIconHelpLoading mastermind, who can vault a dropped Pallet if he collides with it while using Virulent Bound.

As of Patch 3.4.0, Survivors can reset dropped Pallets to the upright position by using the Perk Any Means NecessaryIconPerks anyMeansNecessaryIconPerks anyMeansNecessaryIconPerks anyMeansNecessary.


Types

Dead by Daylight currently features 4 different types}} of Pallets:

Regular Pallet

The Regular Pallet spawns in every single Trial and the main tool for Survivors to barricade the way for Killers while in a Chase.
Some Maps, such as The Decimated Borgo, spawn a visually unique version of it to fit with the theme.

Dream Pallet

The Dream Pallet is one of two types of Dream Traps, which The NightmareIconHelpLoading nightmareIconHelpLoading nightmareIconHelpLoading nightmare can place.
It is only visible to Survivors when they are asleep and dropping it will instantly break it without stunning or hindering The Nightmare in any way.

Possible spawn locations are highlighted to The Nightmare in orange and placed Dream Pallets are highlighted to him in white.

Fake Pallet

The Fake or Illusionary Pallet is one of several possible Illusions induced by The DoctorIconHelpLoading doctorIconHelpLoading doctorIconHelpLoading doctor, using the MadnessIconStatusEffects madnessIconStatusEffects madnessIconStatusEffects madness mechanic.
They can spawn in both the upright and dropped positions and will dissolve if a Survivor walks through them.

They are highlighted to The Doctor in white.

Fragile Pallet

TwistedMasquerade FragilePallet

Party Pallet model

The Fragile or Party Pallet is the newest type and was introduced for the Twisted Masquerade 2023 Event.

It can be spawned by Survivors using their Twisted Skills special ability.
Fragile Pallets have the trade-off that they break immediately upon use, but can still stun the Killer.

It features a unique model, visually designating it as a special Pallet.


Breaking

Killers have the option to break and thus permanently destroy dropped Pallets by interacting with them (default: SPACE, R1, or RB), an action that takes 2.34 seconds.

Breaking a Pallet displays a short animation in which the Killer will destroy it either with their foot, their hand, or their Weapon.
This will momentarily obstruct their vision as the camera will tilt downwards until the Pallet is destroyed, giving the Survivor an opportunity to hide out of sight.
It also gives the Survivor the opportunity to easily blind the Killer with a FlashlightIconItems flashlightIconItems flashlightIconItems flashlight, as they are locked into the animation and cannot turn their head to try and evade the blind.

The HillbillyIconHelpLoading hillbillyIconHelpLoading hillbillyIconHelpLoading hillbilly and The CannibalIconHelpLoading cannibalIconHelpLoading cannibalIconHelpLoading cannibal, both wielding Chainsaws, can alternatively choose to destroy a Pallet with them.
The DemogorgonIconHelpLoading demogorgonIconHelpLoading demogorgonIconHelpLoading demogorgon, The OniIconHelpLoading oniIconHelpLoading oniIconHelpLoading oni, The BlightIconHelpLoading blightIconHelpLoading blightIconHelpLoading blight, and The NemesisIconHelpLoading nemesisIconHelpLoading nemesisIconHelpLoading nemesis may destroy a Pallet by using their Special Attacks.
The Legion can destroy a Pallet by vaulting it during Feral Frenzy if the Iridescent ButtonIconAddon iridescentButtonIconAddon iridescentButtonIconAddon iridescentButton Add-on is equipped.
The Mastermind can destroy Pallets using Virulent Bound if the Lab PhotoIconAddon labPhotoIconAddon labPhotoIconAddon labPhoto Add-on is equipped.
The Knight can destroy Pallets by ordering a Guard to break it for him.
The Good GuyIconHelpLoading goodGuyIconHelpLoading goodGuyIconHelpLoading goodGuy can destroy Pallets by Scampering under them if the Hard HatIconAddon hardHatIconAddon hardHatIconAddon hardHat Add-on is equipped.

Blocking

Blocked upright Pallets cannot be pulled down by Survivors.
Upright Pallets can be blocked while using the Perk Hex: Blood FavourIconPerks hexBloodFavourIconPerks hexBloodFavourIconPerks hexBloodFavour.


Stuns

If a Killer is inside the area of a Pallet and a Survivor pulls it down, they will be pushed back and get stunned for 2 seconds, obstructing their vision as their camera tilts.
This will also award the Survivor a hefty amount of Bloodpoints in the BoldnessDailyRitualIcon boldnessDailyRitualIcon boldnessDailyRitualIcon boldness Category.

If the Killer is close to the edge of the Pallet's Area of Effect, they can try avoiding the stun from the Survivor dropping it by quickly exiting the Area of Effect, as the stun condition is only applied once the Pallet is pulled about 50 % down.

A Killer carrying a Survivor can be stunned by Pallets. If stunned while holding a Survivor, the Killer will drop the Survivor into the Injured StateIconHelp injuredIconHelp injuredIconHelp injured, giving them time to escape.
This only happens when the Killer is able to move as the animation to pick up a Survivor cannot be cancelled.


Grabs

A Survivor in the Injured StateIconHelp injuredIconHelp injuredIconHelp injured can be grabbed by the Killer mid-vault and hoisted directly onto their shoulder by tapping the attack button (default: M1, R2, RT or ZR), putting them instantly into the Dying StateIconHelp dyingIconHelp dyingIconHelp dying upon a drop.


Vaulting

In order to vault over a Pallet, SurvivorsIconHelpLoading survivorIconHelpLoading survivorIconHelpLoading survivor must walk up to it and press SPACE (PC), R1 (PS4), RB (Xbox), or R (Switch).

Killers are generally unable to vault Pallets, with the sole exception being The LegionIconHelpLoading legionIconHelpLoading legionIconHelpLoading legion and The MastermindIconHelpLoading mastermindIconHelpLoading mastermindIconHelpLoading mastermind while using their Powers.
The Good GuyIconHelpLoading goodGuyIconHelpLoading goodGuyIconHelpLoading goodGuy can Scamper under Pallets while in Hidey-Ho Mode.

Survivors have two different types of Pallet vaults:

Fast Vault

If a Survivor runs up to a Pallet and initiates a vault, they will quickly, but noisily slide across it.

  • This vault will take 1.1 seconds.
  • This type of vault is considered a rushed action and will alert the Killer with a noise notification.

Slow Vault

If a Survivor walks up to a Pallet and initiates a vault, they will slowly, but quietly climb over it.

  • This vault will take 2 seconds.
  • This type of vault will not alert the Killer.
    • It still makes a quiet noise that can be identified by experienced Killers if they are close enough to hear it.

Locations

The location of a Pallet or a Pallet Cluster varies with the procedural Map generation and usually differs between two iterations of the same Map.

Spawn Routine

Pallets will spawn at least either 14, 16, 18 or 20 metres away from each other in predetermined spawn spots, with some exceptions on maps such as Midwich Elementary School.

Patch 2.0.0

  • Survivor Nerf: removed the ability to rapidly move from one side of a Pallet to the other when dropping it.
    • This ability was referred to as "Pallet Vacuum" by the Community.

Patch 4.2.0

  • Change: second visual update to the Pallet model.
    • The new model looked more weathered and faded than the previous model, but retained the same general look.

Patch 5.2.0 (PTB)

  • Unimplemented Change: third visual update to the Pallet model.

      The new model would have been identical to the 4.2.0 model, but with a heavily rusted and weathered look to it.

Patch 5.2.0

      This unique model has its boards arranged vertically and is generally assembled much more cleanly and sturdily, featuring chains instead of twine rope.


Trivia

  • The stun condition is applied to the Killer once the Pallet has been pulled down about 50 % of the way, given they are in range.
  • Pallets are also known as "Pull-Downs" and "Barricades".
  • In the Game files, internal references reveal that Pallets were originally supposed to be "Bookshelves" that the Survivors could throw down.
