Dead By Daylight Snowmen: How To Use & 2022 Rewards

Here's how to use the snowmen to earn rewards as both a survivor and killer during Dead by Daylight's winter Bone Chill 2022 event.
Dead By Daylight Snowmen: How To Use & 2022 Rewards

December is here, and Dead by Daylight has already announced that their winter Bone Chill event, first released in 2021, is back for 2022. The Bone Chill event comes with lots of fun in-game bonuses, new decorations, and a fan-favorite mechanic, the snowmen. Both killers and survivors can interact with snowmen, so whichever side you prefer to play, you're in luck! 

Let's go over how to use the snowmen during Dead by Daylight's holiday Bone Chill event, including how to earn rewards by using them.

3 January 2023 - The Bone Chill event has been extended until 11th January, so be sure to get in on the fun with Snowmen and other winter festivities if you missed out!

How to Use Snowmen in Dead by Daylight

During every match throughout the Bone Chill Event, Dead by Daylight's trial grounds will contain six snowmen. Both survivors and killers can interact with the snowmen in their own ways. A survivor can jump into a snowmen, offering them a number of buffs and nerfs.

During the 2022 Bone Chill event, the killer can also jump into the snowman, allowing them to make a more stealthy approach toward survivors.

While a survivor is in the snowman:

  • The killer cannot read the survivor's aura.
  • The survivor cannot run.
  • The survivor walks 15% slower.
  • The snowman will absorb one hit from the killer.

While a killer is in the snowman:

  • The killer walks slower.
  • The killer's Terror Radius will be suppressed.

Any snowman can be destroyed by the killer by hitting it with their weapon. A survivor can also destroy a snowman simply by entering it and leaving it.

How Often Do Snowmen Respawn In Dead by Daylight?

During the Bone Chill event in DBD, each Dead by Daylight trial contains six snowmen. They can be destroyed by survivors or killers. Once one is destroyed, it will respawn in just 20 seconds.

How To Get Snowman Rewards In Dead by Daylight Bone Chill

Unfortunately, there are no rewards for using the Snowmen during the 2022 Dead by Daylight Bone Chill event. That said, you can get some extra Bloodpoints for interacting with one, or for leaving the Trial while in one.

During the 2021 Bone Chill event, Dead by Daylight rewarded players with in-game cosmetics for completing numerous tasks while in a snowman:

  • As a survivor, use a snowman to protect yourself from a killer's attack.
  • As a survivor, escape through the exit gates while inside a snowman.
  • As a killer, hit a snowman that is hiding a survivor inside it.

While we predicted that Behaviour would repeat history and offer players rewards for using the snowmen in a variety of ways, instead players can only get rewards by completing the event tome this year.

That's all you need to know about how to use Snowmen during the DBD Bone Chill 2022 event to earn rewards and engage in some wacky seasonal gameplay.
