Dead by Daylight is a 4v1 survival horror game where you either work with other survivors to power a number of randomly located generators, or play as a deadly killer to hunt down and pick off a group of terrified survivors. Just think of it like a more lethal version of hide and seek, where the prize for winning is keeping your life! Or taking a few...

You can play as some familiar horror movie characters, such as Michael Myers, Laurie Strode, Freddy Krueger, Detective David Tapp, Leatherface, and more. Even Bill from Left 4 Dead makes a surprise appearance.

Hmmm...
To do:
  • Find and document any early names of add-ons, perks, and such.
  • If at all possible, find a way to load the unused maps and get a picture of them.
  • Find any unused files in the leaked Oman build.

Unused Characters

Characters that were either referenced in the code, or scrapped during development.

The Smasher

An early killer prototype that would have had the ability to destroy obstacles within a level, hence its name. Was scrapped early in development due to the difficulty that would have come from trying to balance a character who could effectively "delete" all stage elements.

The Teacher

Following the addition of several files and items into the game themed around schooling, speculation of a killer based off of a teacher arose. Nothing is known about how the Teacher would have played, aside from the killer most likely having a power named "Detention", most likely using a ruler with a blade attached to it as their weapon, and having a perk named "Underperform".

It is thought that the Teacher's existence was possibly a hoax created by developers to fool dataminers and fuel community speculation, and that the Teacher may never have existed in the first place.

Unused Killer Power

A killer power named "Detention" that would have most likely belonged to the Teacher killer. It's unknown what its abilities are.

Unused Mode

A mode named "Quickplay" was previously available for play in the game. In Quickplay, players would either join or create a ranked lobby as either a survivor or a killer respectively, based on whichever option was faster. Due to unpopularity with players and general disuse, it was removed from the game.

Early Filenames

Some files in the game still refer to certain things by the early names they went by during development.

Early Character Names

The files commonly refer to killers as Slashers and survivors as Campers. This is most likely because of killers being inspired by old slasher films and survivors sitting around a campfire between trials respectively.

(Source: "Killers" & "Survivors" on the Dead by Daylight Wiki)

Killers were often referred to by different names during their development. This is reflected in the files as well, with some killers having multiple names:

Final Early
The Trapper Chuckles
The Wraith Banshee
Bob
The Hillbilly Crooked
The Shape Boogeyman
Stalker
The Hag Witch
The Doctor Mu Yi
The Huntress Анна (Anna)
Bear
The Cannibal Leatherface
The Nightmare The Sandman
The Clown The Ringmaster
The Medicine Man

Early names for realms and their maps. Following the addition of the Springwood realm with the "A Nightmare on Elm Street™" DLC, realms are referred to by seemingly random countries corresponding to the letters of the alphabet in A-Z order (England for E, Finland for F, Haiti for H, etc.):

The Pig's Hidden Face

Although a good number of killers in the game wear masks, a few of them do however have modeled faces under their masks, the Trapper and the Huntress being good examples. A rather odd example though would be the Pig killer, who also has a fully modeled face underneath her pig head mask. It can never be seen in-game as the pig head is never removed under any circumstances, but it can be viewed with a model viewer or reportedly by simply clipping the camera into the Pig's head.
