杀戮欲望 is a new mechanic that was introduced with Patch 1.5.0.

It increases the Killer's movement speed during a prolonged chase in order to shorten the overall chase time.

杀戮欲望, like Perks, has three Tiers:

Tier Chase time Speed Bonus in m/s
I 15 seconds +0.2
II 30 seconds +0.4
III 45 seconds +0.6

Gaining Bloodlust[]

杀戮欲望 is being built-up whenever a Killer IconHelpLoading killer.png chases a Survivor IconHelpLoading survivor.png for a certain amount of time without interrupting the chase. Losing a Survivor will result in a quick decrease of 杀戮欲望.

Losing Bloodlust[]

You lose all 杀戮欲望 when performing the following interactions:

  • Hitting a Survivor.
  • Breaking a Pallet.

Bloodlust does not apply under the following conditions or will reset completely:

  • A cloaked Wraith.
  • The Doctor shocking in Treatment mode.
  • The Nurse using her Blink.
  • The Hag teleporting to her Phantasm Trap.
  • The Shape stalking a Survivor.
  • The Cannibal during a Chainsaw Sweep.
  • The Huntress after throwing a Hatchet.
  • The Hillbilly after a Chainsaw Sprint.


  • A Hillbilly charging his Chainsaw will keep and even gain Bloodlust until he breaks into a Chainsaw Sprint.
