The Dead by Daylight survivors tier list may actually surprise you. While some of the placement of certain survivors is to be expected, a few might be listed higher or lower than you would place them. That is the fun of tier lists. While they are subjective, it can be fun to compare notes as gamers and see what everyone thinks.

Follow this list and you just may find yourself escaping the death loop more often. Not that the Dead by Daylight death loop ever truly closes, though.
