For Dead by Daylight’s seventh anniversary event, a brand-new Killer has been introduced to the roster as part of the End Transmission Chapter. The Singularity is an Artificial Intelligence with a vengeance, capable of wreaking havoc across the map with its omnipresent cameras. With complex movement abilities and a moderate skill floor, getting to know The Singularity and his sometimes confusing mechanics can be tricky.

This guide will walk players through how to play The Singularity in Dead by Daylight, going over how his power works and how best to use it.

The Singularity: Power Explained


The Singularity is a Killer without any special attack, meaning he must rely entirely on hitting Survivors with his basic attack. To offset his inability to damage Survivors any other way, The Singularity’s power revolves entirely around pressuring Survivors in other ways.

Firstly, The Singularity can launch Biopods at any vertical, stationary surface. These pods are used to observe locations from afar and, when a Survivor is within line-of-sight, can be fired from to tag a Survivor with a Temporal Slipstream.

When infected with the Temporal Slipstream, Survivors are vulnerable to The Singularity’s Quantum Instantiation power. When shot at or targeted through a Biopod, the Singularity can immediately teleport to these infected Survivors, placing the killer just a few meters from them and triggering his Overclock Mode.

After teleporting, Overclock Mode allows The Singularity to break pallets and vault windows much faster for a few short seconds. Any attempt to stun him will result in the pallet immediately breaking, slowing – but not stopping – The Singularity’s onslaught.

Survivors can use EMPs scattered around the map to cure themselves and each other of the Temporal Slipstream, as well as using them to deactivate nearby Biopods for a long period of time.

The Singularity: How to Play


At the beginning of the game, establish a web of Biopods guarding generators that Survivors are working on, trapping them and nearby loops to ensure The Singularity has eyes across the map. Try to place these pods at high vantage points overlooking large areas, covering a large section of the map. At loops, place multiple Biopods covering a variety of angles to ensure Survivors can’t escape the Killer’s gaze. Placing Biopods at generators and EMP boxes can also help keep track of Survivor movements. After hooking a Survivor, place a Biopod nearby to help tag Survivors who go in for a save. Finally, during the endgame, guarding gates with Biopods can also prove effective.

Using these Biopods, survey the generators and infect anyone working on them, beginning a chase with an infected Survivor. If a Survivor, particularly one at full health, isn’t infected when a chase begins, the player’s top priority should be infecting them mid-chase. Do this by setting up cameras in loops ahead of the Survivor and tagging them.

Once in chase with a tagged Survivor, shoot directly at them or tag them with a camera a second time to teleport behind them and enter Overclock Mode. This is best done to gain distance after a Survivor is injured, or they use an Exhaustion perk. Overclock Mode can also be used to effectively break loops, forcing Survivors to waste pallets or face a quick down.


Survivors will often carry EMPs to disable the Biopods and cure themselves of the Temporal Slipstream. As such, it’s important to commit to a chase once a Survivor is infected and to typically avoid chasing Survivors who begin a chase carrying an EMP, as using them mid-chase can waste much of the Killer’s time.

Maintaining these strategies throughout a trial, The Singularity should find they always have at least one Survivor infected at a time, meaning Survivors are always being pressured away from generators and chases remain short.

Dead by Daylight is currently available for Switch, PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X/S.
