Oh what a fright!
As we previously revealed, Halloween has come to Dead by Daylight with the Haunted by Daylight Event. Experience tense gameplay challenges, unsettling atmosphere, chilling cosmetics to unlock, a brand-new Event Tome, and much more. The Haunted by Daylight Event runs until November 3rd, 11:00 AM ET.
Need a little help on what to do and how to do it during this event? Behaviour Interactive has put out a helpful video guide for Haunted by Daylight, and you can get a breakdown of the important tidbits above. If you’d like a refresher on the full event, you can see the complete details below.
In select Realms, the sky has undergone an unsettling transformation, tearing apart to reveal a mysterious rift. In addition Generators, Hooks, the Exit Gates, and the Basement have been updated with an eerie aesthetic, setting an appropriately ominous mood.
The Bloodweb will also see the return of the Will O’ Wisp Flashlight, the All Hallows’ Eve Lunchbox Med-Kit, the Blight Serum, and a new Haunted by Daylight Bloodpoint Offering.
This year, Pumpkins are making a triumphant return – at least, until they are mercilessly stomped into orange paste. Once again, destroying a Pumpkin will lead to one of three outcomes: the Haste Status Effect (move faster), the Hindered Status Effect (move slower), or nothing at all. Destroying Pumpkins may also grant you Void Energy, a new gameplay mechanic introduced in Haunted by Daylight.
Speaking of which…
For the duration of the Event, players must complete specific objectives to collect Void Energy. Once sufficient Void Energy has been collected, seek out an Unstable Rift to deposit your haul and earn up to 12 Halloween Cosmetics for Killer and Survivor.
It wouldn’t be Halloween without a few goodies, and Haunted by Daylight has plenty of proverbial candy for your eager hands. By depositing a total of 30 Void Energy in a trial and completing the match, players will receive one of 12 Halloween Cosmetic rewards (6 for Killer, 6 for Survivor).
Unlock unique glow-in-the-dark Bone Shirts for Survivors, skeletal designs inspired by each character’s personalities, interests, and backstories.

Additional rewards can be earned in the Haunted by Daylight – Event Tome, with two pages worth of Challenges to complete.
