The number of killers in Dead by Daylight are slowly increasing and this time with the addition of Dungeons and Dragons main villain Vecna. Our Dead by Daylight Killer tier list offers only the latest information and updates of said killers and arrange them properly from the strongest to the weakest. That said, there are some Killers who require more effort to make that happen.

With new chapters every few months, there's no better time to get into Dead by Daylight. So, we have checked over all of our choices to see where Killers rank.

Dead by Daylight Killers tier list - ranked best to worst

For this Dead by Daylight Killer tier list, we've separated the tiers into three. While there are some mid-to-low Killers in the game, it's best to simplify them by just three so that you can get an understanding of which Killers have very few redeeming qualities.

Meanwhile, some fall in the middle bracket of having both big strengths and big weaknesses. As for the top tier, they too have their weaknesses, but they pale in comparison to their strengths.
