How To Counter Ghost Face In Dead By Daylight

The Ghost Face is capable of taking down survivors using his stealth ability, Night Shroud, which allows him to take down survivors in one hit after Stalking them for enough time. It can be terrifying to be ambushed by a stalking Ghost Face, but thankfully, you can use counters to protect yourself from this killer next time you go against him in a trial.

If you're looking for ways to beat Ghost Face, you're in luck. Here are all of the best tips, tricks, and strategies you need to counter The Ghost Face in Dead by Daylight.

Be Vigilant For The Ghost Face

Remember that Ghost Face is a stealthy killer - like Michael Myers - so he can sneak up on you easily and pull you off of a generator or inflict you with the Exposed status effect using his ability. He is one of the quietest killers in the game, too, and wears a dark black cloak in many of his skins, making it even harder to identify him in many of the game's darker maps. To avoid being ambushed, stay vigilant at all times! While you're working on a generator, look around you for this killer, and never assume that he isn't nearby.

Reveal The Ghost Face

If you look at Ghost Face while he is in his Night Shroud ability, you can Reveal him to rob him of his ability. It takes him a good bit of time to earn it back - and without his ability, he can only use his basic attack - so Revealing Ghost Face is game-changing! If you spot a hidden Ghost Face nearby, be sure to stare at him and Reveal him to avoid being Exposed.

Note that if you do reveal The Ghost Face, he will be able to see your location with Killer Instinct - so be careful and don't tip him off at an inopportune time.

That's all you need to know about how to counter Ghost Face in Dead by Daylight. If you are sure to Reveal this killer and stay tuned in to his location, you can escape more trials against him.
