Top Ten Killers In Dead By Daylight

Dead by Daylight is a survival horror game in which 4 survivors have to activate generators and escape from various types of killers.

Dead by Daylight has recently become one of the titles for PS Plus, I thought I might as well do a list covering the top ten killers in the game. I have taken a liking to the killers in particular for the full reason that it's just a more satisfying playstyle, being a large intimidating force to be reckoned with and stalking the survivors to instill fear into their hearts. I love it. I love all the killers equally but today we'll see who is the best of them.

So, let's slash our way into the Top Ten Dead by Daylight killers!

The Top Ten

1 The Nurse

Well it still stuns her when she teleports. - TheFluffyDragon34

The Nurse can teleport, and that's all I have to say to reel you in. She is a pretty mobile character who can track survivors nicely and avoid any obstacles they put in front of her by simply pushing a button and teleporting. - DapperPickle

2 The Wraith

The Wraith is a stealth based killer, able to go cloak and decloak around the map, making it harder for the survivors to see you before it's too late. His perks will give you an easier time of finding and attacking the survivors which make The Wraith a foce to be reckoned with. - DapperPickle

3 The Shape

Michael Myers. You get to play as the killer from Halloween himself. The fact alone that you're playing as him boosts his appeal up by a large amount. His playstyle is very hard to get used to but it's worth it overall as it is very rewarding. - DapperPickle

4 The Trapper

The Trapper is my personal favourite killer, I take a liking to area control characters so he fit the bill perfectly. The bear traps can be effective and I've basically mastered the art. The Trapper is an extremely basic character to use but very rewarding and fun. - DapperPickle

5 The Hillbilly
6 The Nightmare

A once extremely weak killer is now much stronger thanks to a long overdue rework.

Same with The Shape, playing as Freddy boosts his appeal - probably to an even larger amount as I believe that Freddy is more iconic...although Michael is a much better characters. - DapperPickle

7 The Clown

The inevitable clown killer is quite a joy to play as. - DapperPickle

8 The Huntress
9 The Spirit
10 The Hag

The Contenders

11 The Cannibal

He's better than billy, although he does not go to 50mph like billy but can hit multiple targets putting an easy match (especially bbq and chili).

We all love Leatherface. - DapperPickle

12 The Ghost Face
13 The Doctor
14 The Legion

What this killer rules

15 The Plague
16 The Pig

This is probably the weakest killer from the movie based DLC, but I still enjoy her. - DapperPickle

17 The Demogorgon

He’s the best
