He was introduced as one of two Survivors of CHAPTER 13: Stranger Things, a Chapter DLC released on 17 September 2019, which remained available until the Chapter's departure from Dead by Daylight on 17 November 2021.

He originated from the 2016 Sci-Fi-Horror Web Television series Stranger Things.

He remains a playable Character for all Players, who had purchased Steve prior to 17 November 2021.
He cannot be purchased anymore and was removed from the in-game Store.

New Store Steve.png

Steve Harrington is a former jock, able to protect and support his fellow Survivors while providing his own brand of humour.

His personal Perks, BabysitterIconPerks babysitter.png, CamaraderieIconPerks camaraderie.png, and Second WindIconPerks secondWind.png, enable him to distract Killers, tolerate pain, and get back into the fight.


StoreBackground QM.png

Popular and arrogant, yet compassionate, Steve Harrington is an unlikely mentor and leader.
He often acts as a surrogate big brother to a younger boy named Dustin.
He even helped him find his slimy inter-dimensional pet Demogorgon, D'Artagnan.
His reputation as a protector grew and he soon became a sort of "babysitter" for a group of kids in Hawkins with a knack for messing around with strange and dangerous things.
His courage is unmatched so that he was even able to fend off a Demogorgon when it threatened his friends.
One evening he received a call for assistance from his friend Nancy Wheeler.
He drove all the way to the Hawkins National Laboratory to see if she was okay.
He searched the area but only found her notebook.
Before he realised what was happening the ground opened up and a swirl of black mist filled his eyes.
When he awakened he was in a strange place that seemed familiar but unfamiliar at the same time.


Unique Perks[]

Steve came with 3 Perks IconHelp perks.png that were unique to him until the departure of the Chapter from Dead by Daylight:

Babysitter Babysitter

While you have a reputation for being self-centred, you risk it all to help those in need.

When you unhook a SurvivorIconHelpLoading survivor.png, the rescued Survivor will leave neither Scratch MarksIconHelp scratchMarks.png nor Pools of BloodIconStatusEffects bleeding.png for the next 4/6/8 seconds.

  • Both you and the KillerIconHelpLoading killer.png see each other's AuraIconHelp auras.png for 4 seconds.

"I promised to keep you shitheads safe, and that's exactly what I plan on doing." — Steve Harrington

Camaraderie Camaraderie

Life has taught you the importance of friendship which has given you strength.

While you are on the HookIconHelpLoading hook.png in the Struggle Phase, Camaraderie activates:

  • If another SurvivorIconHelpLoading survivor.png is within 16 metres of your Hook while Camaraderie is active, the Struggle Phase timer is paused for 26/30/34 seconds.

"So, remember once you get in there... pretend like you don't care. There you go, you're learning my friend. You're learning." — Steve Harrington

Second Wind Second Wind

You have learnt to avoid awkward situations with parents.

Part of you still thinks your best option is to run away and hope things will take care of themselves.
When you heal another SurvivorIconHelpLoading survivor.png for the equivalent of 1 Health StateIconStatusEffects healing.png, Second Wind activates:

  • The next time you are unhooked or unhook yourself, you suffer from the BrokenIconStatusEffects broken.png Status Effect until Second Wind deactivates.
  • You are automatically healed 1 Health State after 28/24/20 seconds.

While Second Wind is active, the following conditions will deactivate it:

  • Successfully being healed by Second Wind.
  • Being put into the Dying StateIconHelp dying.png before the timer elapses.

Second Wind does not activate if you already suffer from the Broken Status Effect.
"Yeah, that's a no." — Steve Harrington

Teachable Perks[]

Progressing through Steve's BloodwebIconHelp bloodweb.png will spawn their Teachable Variant at specific Levels:

  • Level 30: Babysitter Teachable babysitter.png
  • Level 35: Camaraderie Teachable camaraderie.png
  • Level 40: Second Wind Teachable secondWind.png

Obtaining the Teachable Perks will unlock them to spawn in the Bloodwebs of all other Survivors.
