DBD Haunted by Daylight Halloween Event
Unlockable through the Haunted by Daylight Event (‘October 13th, 11:00 AM ET – November 3rd, 11:00 AM ET’)
With tricks and treats aplenty to go around, ensure that you know what’s going on with a full lowdown on the event and grab a free handy reward checklist while you’re at it.
‘In select Realms, the sky has undergone an unsettling transformation, tearing apart to reveal a mysterious rift.’ Generators, Hooks, the Exit Gates, and the Basement have been decorated for the duration of the event.
Players must complete specific objectives to collect a new thing called ‘Void Energy’. Once sufficient Void Energy has been collected, you can seek out an Unstable Rift to deposit your haul and earn up to 12 Halloween Cosmetics for Killer and Survivor (see ‘Event Checklist’ section for details.)
A ‘strange and inexplicable substance from a Realm beyond’, Void Energy must be collected and deposited in an Unstable Rift. Players can only carry up to 15 Void Energy at a time. Depositing a total of 30 in a single match will grant you one of 12 rewards.
Survivors can collect Void Energy by repairing Halloween Generators and Killers collect it by hooking Survivors on Halloween Hooks. It will also possible for both sides to steal Void Energy from one another, either (as killer) by downing a Survivor or (as survivor) stunning the Killer.
That’s a lot of info there, so just to be more clearer:
As a Survivor you get Void Energy by:
- Repairing Halloween Generators
- Stunning a Killer carrying Void Energy
- And destroying a Pumpkin
As a Killer you get Void Energy by:
- Hooking Survivors on Halloween Hooks
- Downing a Survivor carrying Void Energy
- Destroying a Pumpkin
*Remember that you can only carry 15 Void Energy at a time and that 30 Void Energy is needed in one match to gain a cosmetic – meaning that you will have to deposit your energy at least twice in one match*
A small bar on the bottom Left will show you how much void energy you have.
Carrying 15 Void Energy will reveal the aura of the Unstable Rift to you.
Up to 3 Unstable Rifts will spawn across the Map in a trial for you to find and will disappear if left alone for long enough – respawning in different locations. After depositing your Void Energy into them – you earn bonus Bloodpoints and gain a temporary speed boost (the Haste status effect.)
The Rift will then disappear, respawning at a new location shortly afterwards.
