Dead by Daylight Killer Reveal - The Cenobite
After weeks of speculation, dreams have finally become reality. Pinhead, from the acclaimed horror series Hellraiser is coming to Dead by Daylight as "The Cenobite". Who is this imposing and crafty figure and what does he bring to the realm of the Entity?
The Cenobite goes by many names, Hell Priest, The Engineer, Cold Man, and The Pope of Hell. But when those names won't do, most will refer to him simply as Pinhead. In life, his name was Elliott Spencer. As a captain of the British Expeditionary Force during WWI, Spencer suffered from PTSD and survivor's guilt. During the battle of Passchendaele he lost all faith in God and humanity. In the following years he found himself wandering the globe until eventually arriving in British India where he discovered the Lament Configuration. It was then that the powerful Cenobites were summoned and after some time, he joined their ranks before rising up as a leader.
The Cenobite comes with a unique skill and three perks, as is par for any new killer in Dead by Daylight.
Summons of Pain: An extradimensional gateway that leads to pleasure and pain so great it will tear your soul apart.
Press the Power Button to create a gateway and release the button to open it. Once opened, tap the Ability Button to summon forth a possessed chain under your control. Direct the chain into a survivor to bind them.
A survivor bound to a chain is unable to sprint. Their movement speed will decrease further as they're hit with a second and third chain. Survivors can perform the Break Free action to escape.
Lament Configuration: If left alone, the Lament Configuration initiates a Chain Hunt by summoning chains to pursue survivors. The hunt ends when a survivor picks up the Lament Configuration.
A survivor carrying the Lament Configuration will be afflicted with the Oblivious status effect and chains will occasionally be summoned to attack them. The survivor must solve the Lament Configuration to remove it from their possession. While doing this, The Cenobite will see their location and be able to teleport to it.
When The Cenobite picks up the Lament Configuration, a Chain Hunt is activated. Additionally, all survivors are instantly bound by chains, causing them to scream and reveal their locations.
The Lament Configuration will spawn in a new location after The Cenobit or a survivor has used it.
