William "Bill" Overbeck is a character from the horror game Dead By Daylight, though originally from the Zombie Horror Game Series Left 4 Dead.

He is apart of the Left Behind Paragraph which was a free DLC exclusively on PC Only.


It took two tours in Vietnam, a handful of medals, a knee full of shrapnel, and an honorable discharge to get William "Bill" Overbeck to stop fighting and try to live a peaceful life. He hated it. After decades spent drifting aimlessly through dead-end jobs, Bill went in for a routine surgery and woke up to find the world he knew was gone. A plague was turning normal people into mindless killing machines. Naturally, the first thing he did was fight his way home and put on his uniform. Making his way through rural ghost towns and pitch-black forests, he found other survivors, and together they fled from the infected hordes. In the end, Bill sacrificed himself to ensure their safety. His body was never found. Bill was left for dead. No one knows that he still has the only thing he ever wanted: an enemy to fight.


Bill BorrowedTime

Borrowed Time

You are fueled by unexpected energy when saving an ally from a hook within the killer's terror radius. Once per match, after unhooking a survivor within the killer’s terror radius, any damage taken that would put you or the unhooked survivor into the dying state will instead trigger a bleed out timer. Taking any damage during the bleed out timer or reaching the end of the bleed out timer will put you into the dying state.

Bill Unbreakable


Past battles have taught you a thing or two about survival. Grants the ability to fully recover from the dying state once per trial. Increases dying recovery speed.
