Dead by Daylight’s Haunted By Daylight Event Returns | Everything You Need To Know


It’s time to celebrate Halloween in Dead by Daylight with the spookiest Event of the year. In case you missed our recent Livestream, we’ve got you covered with this complete guide to all things Haunted by Daylight.

Atmosphere To Die For

From October 18th, 2:00 PM ET – November 6th, 2:00 PM ET, Haunted by Daylight will take over the Entity’s Realm, tainting it with the mysterious presence of the Void Realm. Not only that, but familiar sights like Generators and Hooks will also undergo a spooky transformation.

The Bloodweb will also see the return of the Will O' Wisp Flashlight, the All Hallows' Eve Lunchbox Med-Kit , the Blight Serum, and the Arcane Dowsing Rod Bloodpoint Offering .


The Void Beckons

This year marks the arrival of the Void Realm, a terrifying Realm created by The Entity as a wasteland for its discarded...playthings. For the first time, the Void Realm is explorable, and its presence will have an immediate impact on Trials for both Killer and Survivor. So how does it all come together on the gameplay side?


Collect Void Energy

Like last year, players must complete specific objectives to collect Void Energy:


  • Repairing Halloween Generators
  • Stunning a Killer carrying Void Energy
  • Destroying a Pumpkin


  • Hooking Survivors on Halloween Hooks
  • Downing a Survivor carrying Void Energy
  • Destroying a Pumpkin





They can also collect Void Orbs, which float toward the player when approached. After sufficient Void Energy has been collected, seek out one of four Unstable Rifts to deposit your haul and activate that Rift. Once enough collective Void Energy has been deposited across all Unstable Rifts, all Rifts will become portals to the Void Realm, which you will be free to enter.

Entering The Void

When you step into the Void Realm, don’t be alarmed. Okay, you can be somewhat alarmed. Killers will be Undetectable while in the Void Realm, but they will not be able to use their Powers. At the same time, Survivors will be Exhausted and Broken (if already injured or injured in The Void Realm).

You won’t find any Generators, Pallets, Lockers, Chests, or Totems in the Void Realm. There are Hooks, but when a Survivor is placed on one, they will instantly be transported to a Hook on the Map. There are ghostly figures called Haunts, the spirits of all those drained and discarded by The Entity. Provide them with 12 Void Energy to Capture them and release them from the Void and into the Map.

Note that The Void will close a) 2 minutes after spawning, or b) once all available Haunts have been released.


HAUNT-ed By Daylight

Once a Haunt has been released, their Aura is revealed. From there, it can impact players in various ways, acting as either a boon or a trap.

For Survivors who complete the Release they will immediately gain a boost for a brief duration, consisting of Haste, Endurance, and 20% faster Action Speed. Their held Item will also be refilled to 50% .

For Killers who completed the Release, they will also immediately gain a boost for a brief duration, consisting of Haste, Undetectable, and 20% faster Action and Cooldown speed.

If a Survivor approaches a Haunt Released by a Survivor, they will briefly receive the Haste speed boost. If a Killer approaches a Haunt Released by a Survivor, they will briefly become Hindered. If a Killer approaches a Haunt they have Released, they will receive a brief Haste speed boost. If a Survivor approaches a Haunt Released by a Killer, their camera will lock onto the Haunt (similar to a Hag’s Phantasm Trap), and they’ll temporarily become Hindered.

Pumpkin Time

It wouldn’t be Halloween without a few Pumpkins scattered around the Map. As is tradition, destroying a Pumpkin will lead to one of three outcomes: the Haste Status Effect, the Hindered Status Effect, or nothing at all.

Event Tome + Halloween Rewards

It wouldn’t be Halloween without treats, and we’ve got you covered with plenty of earnable rewards to unlock. This year, you’ll be able to earn Dark Trinkets by completing challenges in the Haunted by Daylight Event Tome, which can then be used to purchase Haunted by Daylight Cosmetics for both Killer and Survivor:
