Overview

  • As a Survivor, go in alone or team up with friends to face an unknown threat. Use Items at hand, Unlocked Abilities and Environmental Objects to outwit the monster and escape from its killing ground.
  • Set in a procedurally generated World, you'll never know what to expect, what you're facing and how to get away. You will have to make stressful choices under desperate circumstances. Every decision impacts your chances of survival.
  • Killers come from all horror genres, from brutal slashers to terrifying paranormal entities. Master these monsters' unique powers and exploit the knowledge of your “home” to track, hunt down, break and sacrifice your victims before they get a chance to escape to safety.
  • The asymmetry, procedural factors and unique thinking of human individuals make each Dead by Daylight match an unexpected scenario where the combined behaviour of each player creates a truly terrifying and thrilling narrative.
  • Dead by Daylight Characters each have a deep progression and Unlockables which can be customized into your own personal strategy. Use your experience, Skills and load-out to climb up the competitive ladder and you might eventually discover the truth beyond the fog.

Chapter 7: SAW

CHAPTER VII: The SAW™ Chapter is the seventh Chapter DLC for Dead by Daylight .

This DLC features:

  • A new Killer (The Pig)
  • A new Survivor (David Tapp)
  • A new Realm (Gideon Meat Plant/The Game)


Description

The SAW™ Chapter is a Chapter for Dead by Daylight.

Life is the most precious thing we have. A gift we are given, but a gift some squander. We need to be alive and not just exist. This is where The Pig steps in - a teacher that provides those selected with an opportunity to appreciate life yet again. To fight for our own survival, or simply let go and die. David Tapp thinks otherwise. He believes that everyone is free to live their own life, without the threat of death in the shape of a trap. A seasoned detective that seeks The Pig - a search that brings him to the Gideon Meat Plant.

Puzzle me this

They say that it’s good for the human race to solve puzzles, to make use of our highly developed brain. To get some of that “positive stress”. But there’s a limit. A lethal limit where blood gets involved and we create memories of something we rather forget. The Pig is the puzzlemaster, and we are the test subjects.

The SAW™ Chapter™ is a Chapter for Dead by Daylight. It includes a new Killer, a Survivor and a Map.

Killer's Info

DBD Piggy.png

The Pig

The Pig is a disciple of a mastermind known to the world as Jigsaw. In both The Pig and Jigsaw’s minds, they believe they are doing something necessary. Something that’ll make those placed inside their devious contraptions see life for what it really is once again. There are, of course, some sacrifices one must be willing to make, if one is to survive the “lesson”. Good luck…

Pig's Overview

The Pig is a tormenting Killer, able to crouch into stealth mode, then ambush Survivors from a short distance. She can also apply Reverse Bear Traps to downed Survivors, forcing them to remove it before the timer runs out, triggering an instant death.

Her personal Perks, Hangman's Trick , Surveillance , and Make Your Choice , give her more Map control and expose altruistic Survivors.

The focus of her Perks is on pain and torture. A Hook is not that easy to flee from and all Survivors will be seriously tested when it comes to Skill Checks.

DBD reverse-bear-trap.png

Forever devoted to her master's cause, she punished the ungrateful and the guilty with slyness and murderous puzzles.

The Pig can move stealthily, dash in Ambush Attacks and put deadly Reverse Bear Traps on Survivors' heads.

JIGSAW'S BAPTISM:

The Pig starts the Trial with 4 Reverse Bear Traps.

Inactive Reverse Bear Traps:

While standing over a Survivor who is in the Dying State , press the Active Ability button to place an Inactive Reverse Bear Trap on that Survivor's head.

  • Jigsaw Boxes are located around the environment.
  • Survivors may leave through an Exit Gate  while wearing an Inactive Reverse Bear Trap.

Active Reverse Bear Traps:

Whenever a Generator  is completed, all currently Inactive Reverse Bear Trap will activate:

  • Active Reverse Bear Traps initiate the Death timer, a countdown timer displayed on the Survivor's Status icon that expires after 150 seconds.
  • Once the Death timer expires, the Active Reverse Bear Traps snaps open, automatically sacrificing the Survivor.
  • A Survivor attempting to leave the Trial Grounds through an Exit Gate with an Active Reverse Bear Traps immediately trips the Reverse Bear Trap.
  • The Death timer is paused whenever the Survivor is being chased by The Pig or is in the Dying State.

SPECIAL ABILITY: Crouch

Press the Active Ability button to crouch and uncrouch.

  • When crouched, The Pig is granted the Undetectable  Status Effect at the cost of moving at a slower speed (3.6 m/s).

SPECIAL ATTACK: Ambush Dash

Press and hold the Attack button when crouched to perform an Ambush Dash attack at increased speed (6.9 m/s) and range.

"You will give everything to me, every cell in your body. The marks on your arms, they're from another life. We'll leave that life behind. When you walk down that corridor there is no turning back. Do you understand that?" — Jigsaw's Baptism

Survivor's Info

DBD Tapp.png

The Detective

David Tapp is one of the few good guys left. Someone who actually seeks justice. After years of wearing the shield, he caught the most horrendous case yet. A fiendish being that reserved the right to unleash torture upon the world as it was considered “needed”. A frantic chase began, making David end up at the Realm of the Entity where the search never ends.

Overview

David Tapp is an obsessed Detective, able to locate and complete Objectives faster.

His personal Perks, Tenacity , Detective's Hunch , and Stake Out , make him objective-focused and able to rapidly recover.

His Perks are all about determination and not giving up. You are dead set on reaching your goal and survive no matter what.

Tapp's Perks

  • Tenacity
  • Detective's Hunch
  • Stake Out

Realm

Gideon Meat Plant

Gideon Meatpacking Plant had long lain derelict before its original designer, John Kramer, moved back in, transforming it into the workshop where he would devise his many games, and the location where those games would play out. Surveillance cameras now cover every angle of the building, reporting the progress of test subjects to a bank of monitors: a grainy testament of life and death. In the workshop, hundreds of carefully-rendered plans hang from every wall. Half-completed machinery litters the worktops, next to the tools that helped create them. Mannequins are everywhere, their blank eyes staring impassively at their dismembered brethren, strapped into test rigs or already destroyed by successful trials. In many ways, the plant is unchanged: it still rings to the sound of buzz saws and sliced flesh; the drains still clog with congealed blood, fat and hair. The building’s occupants have always been dead meat, but now they have a chance at transformation; a chance to emerge back into the world, reborn as something better. And, if they fail? There’s always the drain.

The sickly glow of fluorescent lighting bathes the room where Jigsaw planned out his games. This place is the product of a fevered mind, desperately trying to complete their life’s work, their legacy, before their inevitable end. A place of creation and destruction, from which devices of death and rebirth were produced.

Below is the crucible itself; the location of so many tests and decisions. The smell of fear, blood and death has soaked into the brick walls. The corridors are a maze, disorientating the test subjects as they traverse the game rooms. And, at the heart, a bathroom, reverberating with the rattle of chains on tiles. A door is pulled closed and the room is plunged into darkness.

A door is pulled closed and the room is plunged into darkness.

Jigsaw Boxes

The Jigsaw Boxes are Props featured in Dead by Daylight  that were implemented with Patch 1.9.0 as part of CHAPTER VII: The SAW™ Chapter.

Overview

Jigsaw Boxes are used by Survivors to attempt removing The Pig's Reverse Bear Traps  from their head.

Whenever The Pig  is the chosen Killer, the procedural generator will spawn 4 Jigsaw Boxes throughout the Trial Ground.

Jigsaw Boxes emit distinct sound cues of mechanical parts moving about.

Billy, the Jigsaw Puppet

Jigsaw Boxes are easily recognized due to the presence of "Billy", Jigsaw's Puppet, who sits atop of each Box.

He can also be seen on the TV sets featured throughout The Game.

Use

Once The Pig placed a Reverse Bear Trap on a Survivor's head, the Game will randomly choose one of the available Jigsaw Boxes as the key to remove said Reverse Bear Trap, with the others serving as decoys.

Trapped Survivors will see the Auras  of all available Jigsaw Boxes that they have not yet searched.

Searching a Jigsaw Box for the key to unlock the Reverse Bear Trap will take 12 seconds to complete and has a chance of 80 % to trigger Skill Checks  each second.

Failing these Skill Checks will briefly pause (for 1.5 seconds) the Progression, apply a Regression penalty of 10 %, and trigger a Loud Noise notification for The Pig, alerting her to the Player's location.

Once the progress bar is full, either of two things will happen depending on whether or not it was the correct Jigsaw Box:

Correct Jigsaw Box

  • The Reverse Bear Trap is removed from the Survivor's head.

Wrong Jigsaw Box

  • Jigsaw's Puppet, "Billy", cackles at the Survivor and the Reverse Bear Trap remains on the Survivor's head, requiring them to try their luck at another Jigsaw Box.
  • The white Aura of that Jigsaw Box is no longer shown to the Survivor.

Unused Items

  • Glass Splinter

Lore Characters

  • John Kramer
  • Billy the Puppet
  • Cecil Adams
  • Gideon John Kramer
  • Jill Tuck
  • Danica Scott
  • Adam Stanheight
  • Detective Stephen Sing
  • Lawrence Gordon
  • Zepp Hindle

Trivia

  • In the Game files Jigsaw Boxes are also being referred to under the name Puzzle Box.
  • The presence of Jigsaw Boxes on a Map reveal The Pig's identity to Survivors in a similar fashion as do The Trapper's Bear Traps.
  • Despite being a notable icon of the SAW™ franchise, this is the only appearance of Billy in the Chapter DLC.
    • He does not appear on any Perks or Add-ons exclusive to The Pig.
  • A Leak was possibly shown to have David Tapp and The Pig as the chosen characters for the Archives' Tome X. more info on that will be added soon.

10 Pints of Sacrifice Trap

  • The Jigsaw Boxes are most likely inspired by the 10 Pints of Sacrifice Trap featured in SAW V. They have a similar look and some of the Add-ons affecting the Jigsaw Boxes point to a similar use.
    • This Trap required the Victims to "donate" 10 Pints of their own blood within 15 minutes, to unlock a door or they would be killed by nail bombs located in the room. Inside the Trap, circular blades would cut open the Victims' hands and collect the blood in a glass beaker below.
