Ethan Winters from Resident Evil 7 for Dead by Daylight?

If so, what killer would you want in it?

    As long as the killer isn't Jack I'm all good. That was traumatic and eventually annoying enough the first time... Marguerite would be kinda cool though, crawling down walls and using stinger swarms, if you can ignore how she spawns bugs that is...

    Realistically if the killer isn't Jack I can only imagine Lucas Baker being the killer with a Re7 cross over. Lucas would be interesting though because he would have a lot of gadgets and traps on the map. Like imagine looting a chest and the moment you open it the chest then explodes. Alternatively tripwire traps with explosives and devices meant to impale survivors would be cool.

    To be honest though I'd take any Resident Evil cross over for DBD. Although if I had to pick and choose I'd be fine with only a killer from Resident Evil and some sort of mansion.

    @Dustin That is very true but we do already have a few "trap type" killers would be harder to make him unique, but what you suggested would be amazing, booby trapped chests and tripwires would be great, imagine booby trapped gens though that shock you if you try to activate them in a window of time post trap setting.

    probably one of the Bakers, or Eveline. They could boost her height and make her power similar to what she had in the game: possessing others to do bad deeds (at least from what I experienced. I haven't played the game in 2 years.)

    It could go something like this:

    The Possession:

    Power: Eveline's Desire

    By charging the Power Activation button, you unleash a haunting 'cone' in front of you. Any survivor that gets within the cone will become Possessed.

    A Possessed survivor cannot perform any objective except for mending and healing. An icon will appear next to the survivor's name, determining whether or not they are Possessed. If a Possessed survivor heals themselves or others, they will be faced with tremendously difficult skill checks and have an increased regression of healing by 50%. Possessed survivors will not be able to hear your heartbeat and the Red Stain disappears. Possessed survivors remain Possessed for 25 seconds. Charging is 2.5 seconds, and the duration of the cone is 5 seconds. A Possessed survivor's screen is dimmed out and their sound is slightly distorted. Survivor's cannot get out of being Possessed until the duration is over. It takes 5 seconds for a survivor to become Possessed.

    Weapon: (this is unrelated to RE7: Biohazard, but it's unique) Spiked Mace

    MS: 115%


    -Affect the duration

    -Increases size of cone

    -Reduces time of becoming possessed

    -Increased penalty

    -Increases time of cone duration


    Biohazard (common/uncommon/rare)

    You were created as a bio-weapon for hazardous reasons. If two or more survivors are working on a generator, skill checks are considerably more likely to appear. Skill check regression is increased by 15/20/25% if a skill check is failed.

    "They're mine now."

    Shipwreck (uncommon/rare/very rare)

    As a result of rage, you caused the ship you were being transported on to sink. After you hook a survivor, all survivors scream and reveal their location for 3/4/5 seconds.

    "Stay away."

    Dulvey Incident (rare/very rare/ultra rare)

    After a survivor heals themselves outside of your terror radius, they have their aura revealed to you for 3/4/5 seconds. If they heal from the Injured to Healthy state, they are immediately injured, notifying you and showing their aura to you for 4 seconds.

    "Damn you all to hell."

    I wouldn't be against having another M1 Killer that used traps as long as their traps were interesting. Looking back on RE7 if you used Lucas as a concept his explosives would knockback survivors stunning them temporarily but the explosion would be a wide radius so it would have a point as opposed to Hag / Trapper.

    What I'd imagine Lucas' kit would be is...

    Passive - Half the chest on the map are given a random effect on opening. Explosives. become obsession, etc.

    Generators could be trapped and these traps could activate based on which side you work on and how many work on the generator.

    Lucas could set trip mines throughout the map that knock survivors down. These would be those little traps with the line across the floor or vertically touching the ceiling.

    Although as always a character like Lucas would never fit in DBD because he has way too much personality. Eventually I hope to see a RE cross over though. I was pretty hopeless on seeing an Evil Dead crossover but eventually that happened. Granted it's lacking a map but at least we got Ash in all his glory.

    Why get characters from RE7 when literally RE1, 2 , 3, and 4 have better choices.

    Big think

  • PhantomMask20763PhantomMask20763 Member Posts: 5,176

    Why use a killer from RE7 when we can use MR.X AS THE BRAND NEW LICENSED KILLER! X GON GIVE IT TO YA, HE GON GIVE IT TO YA

    Def agree with above though, there are better potential killers in RE series in general, personally regenerators/Rasklapanje always freak me out or any of the instagrab you're dead monsters. I don't really think in retrospect though that any are particularly suited to dbd playstyle as stated above by @katoptris

  • PhantomMask20763PhantomMask20763 Member Posts: 5,176

    @katoptris we can always make him immune to pallets and make stealth his greatest weakness ;)

    (I'm kidding for those who can't take jokes)

    I didnt wanna see major icon Slashers be beaten by mere wooden planks but it's a thing so , get over it i guess?

    Plus he might have a built in Spirit Fury if the devs ever wanted the tyrant in DBD.

    They did say the had that idea where a killer could burst through walls

    If we are gonna get a resident evil chapter and the survivor is not Leon S. Kennedy, I will be disappointed as hell.

  • WateryWatery Member Posts: 1,118

    Mia Winters or Claire would make me much happier.

  • Shad03Shad03 Member Posts: 3,732

    Survivor: Either Ethan Winters/Joe Baker/Chris/Claire Redfield

    Killer: Either Mr. X/Jack Baker/ Eveline/Lucas

    I can think of a few perks but that depends on who is wanted more (Also it has to make sense. Ethan never met Mr.X so that'd be weird. Likewise Chris/Claire never met the Baker family.)
