On Sept. 7 the Hellraiser chapter finally arrived to Dead by Daylight, bringing a new character into the fog. The newcomer is Pinhead, a character players have wanted in the game for a long time. In Dead by Daylight he is specifically called the Cenobite, since players can choose to play more than just Pinhead. Like many other Killers, Pinhead’s legendary cosmetic changes his visual identity. The Cenobite arrives with a legendary cosmetic skin, changing him to the Chatterer. Who knows what other Cenobites we will get in the future?
Pinhead takes pleasure in the Survivors’ pain. He brings the Lament Configuration into the trial, a tricky puzzle box item which daring Survivors can attempt to solve. Opening the Lament Configuration has its consequences, though, putting the Survivor right in Pinhead’s path. With his power, Summons of Pain, Pinhead can summon chains to bind Survivors that he hunts, leaving them no way to survive.
Along with a new Killer power, Pinhead brings three unique Killer perks: Deadlock, Hex: Plaything, and Scourge Hook: Gift of Pain. Notably, Gift of Pain is the first in an upcoming subclass of Scourge Hook perks. To learn more about Pinhead’s power, check out our Pinhead guide. We’ve also prepared a guide on the best use of his perks. Unfortunately, there are no new Survivors coming with him in the Hellraiser chapter.
There is everything you need to know about the Hellraiser chapter in Dead by Daylight. Have fun killing as Pinhead (or escaping from him) and stay tuned for more Dead by Daylight content!
