Succeeding in Dead by Daylight's Cross Play PS4

Updated on August 25, 2020

Knowing the difference between the systems with the different

One key difference between the all the different ways you can play is the hardware. Looking to succeed in Dead by Daylight is knowing that PC players tend to use better peripherals that their console counterparts. This includes headsets, monitors, and of course keyboard and mouse.Odds are one in four matches will be against a PC Killer which may be better at hearing you. Sounds are very important in this game and if you end up playing on a large television only, there may be things you may have missed. First off breaking line of sight from the Killer usually was enough to get out of a chase, but not so much anymore. Survivors make breathing noises and if they are injured the noise is much greater with intermittent grunts of loud pains. These noises can be heard though out usually a whole tile especially being injured. Something for countering this would be using Iron Will since it will make you sound the same during being injured as being healthy. This will save you more times than not against killers relying on sounds when searching for survivors they lost from sight. In the current state of the game too there is a minor bug with Iron Will perk that actually makes your breathing significantly lower too while injured making you into a virtually inaudible survivor. From my experience PC and even some higher rank console players know the importance of equipment especially a good set of headphones. Versing a PC killer the idea is to break the line of sight and when they are looking for you that you should try to crouch away. You will never know for sure that someone is going to be listening to your every step so it is best practice to do this with all your games if you have a chance to lose the killer. Crouching does not produce footsteps sounds or scratch marks so definitely a go to strategy when you have a few seconds before a killer arrives at your position.


Sounds are very important including the ones you make and hear. Using Iron Will will help survivors escaping from the killer. Make sure to get yourself a good set of headphones with this new update so you can be more on par with PC players!

Great mid range headphones capable with all the consoles and provide a great range of sounds with clarity. Having used them for a few years and many fps shooters later this headset still holds up. With these you can definitely picked up on sound cues when you need to.

Keyboard and mouse changes what is possible for some killers.

It is no surprise that having a mouse you have a much finer control over to how fast you look around. Knowing killers can now do a 180 degree turn significantly faster than using analog sticks. It is important to remember this and trying to save yourself by walking around a killer is less likely to work when the killer has a chance to turn faster than you can run around them. Another situation that occurs often is when you need to look behind you while using a controller over a mouse which is much easier to do since PC players can hold down W and switch to S quickly to look freely with the mouse. As a controller player you have to remember to limit looking back as little as you can while trying to keep track of where the killer is by the sounds of their footsteps. When you do look back make sure to see roughly how much time you have before the killer with reach you to limit having to look back. Judging the time with the distance you can travel can be quite difficult at first. Some things to remember include the fastest killers, without any special powers activated, only move 15% faster than you. Given most loop able areas are around 16 meters in size and tiles can be as large as 32 meters. So from most loop able spots you are within 32 meters from another. Given the speed is not much slower you only need a little over 1 second of a lead to get to maybe the next window of a loop, or killer shack. This second assumes he is following your steps perfectly and making the same mistakes while running as you do so keep that in mind if the killer starts to zone you into a dead zone.

Killers can look behind them and do 360 turns much faster than any console player. It is best to avoid being zoned so you can make it to the next looping area to buy your team more time. Avoid looking back when unnecessary and use their sounds and your general game sense to make it to the next loop.
