The one and only killer you get to play as during the Dead by Daylight crossover event is called the Deathslinger; a character who carries a Win94 Rifle, a Machete, and Sticky Bombs. You’ll need to use each and every one of these weapons in order to maim and disrupt the Survivors that are trying to escape the map.

Your main goal is to keep Survivors from restoring power to the two escape doors on the map through their repairs of the generators laid throughout. Until a generator is fully restored, you are able to break it back down, resulting in the Survivors having to repair it yet again. When Survivors make mistakes in the field, you’ll be alerted to their location.

While shooting Survivors is the most effective way to get them downed fully, you’ll want to utilize the Machete when in close proximity, as the rifle does take a moment to get ready as you have to be aiming down sights in order to take a shot. The first hit to a Survivor doesn’t knock them down instantly, no matter the weapon you choose. It’ll just maim them and slow them down a bit, though they can use health packs to heal each other, so be wary of that.

Once you’ve actually fully downed a Survivor, you can pick them up and carry them to one of the many red lockers to hold them hostage.Though their Survivor counterparts can try to save them, so it’s best to stick close to the red locker and be ready to catch another unsuspecting victim. After all players have been captured, you effectively win the game!
