How to Use a Flashlight in Dead by Daylight
In Dead by Daylight, your flashlight will quickly become your best friend. Aside from obviously being able to see in dark places, a flashlight can also become a bit of a lifeline if the killer gets a little too close for comfort. With a well-time dazzle, players can use the flashlight to stun the killer in Dead by Daylight, to help aid your escape, or just save a friend being carried by the killer. As such, you’re probably wanting to know exactly what you need to know to use a flashlight in Dead by Daylight.
You can equip a flashlight before a match in order to use it during a game or you can find it in a treasure chest on the map. These flashlights can be used to blind the killer and if the killer happens to be carrying your friend, they will drop them if blinded correctly and will be stunned for a short amount of time.
Flashlights seem to work best against three of the killers: The Hag, the Wraith, and the Nurse. If you time it correctly, the light will be super beneficial to aiding your mates and getting the hell out of the way of the frightening killers. It’s almost impossible to get out of a killer’s grasp, so having the flashlight will really increase your chances of survival in Dead by Daylight. Always try to look for treasure chests on the map, which is a great way to grab ‘em.
That’s all you need to know to summon a beacon of light in your darkest times in the game. Or, y’know, just what you need to know to use flashlights. We prefer the former, more dramatic description. For more guides, tips, tricks, and wikis, be sure to search for Twinfinite – we got you covered.
