Flashlights in Dead by Daylight are useful for a lot of things - from blinding and stunning killers to burning Hag Traps. They can completely turn a game around when used correctly. But did you know that you can use a Flashlight to destroy The Artist's Dire Crows, effectively rendering her unable to use her ability? That's right - a Flashlight is one of the most important tools you can bring along when facing off against The Artist!

When The Artist sets up her Dire Crows, shine your Flashlight at them, and they will disappear. This will save you from potentially getting hit or zoned out of an area in many situations.

Stay Mobile Against The Artist in Dead by Daylight

One of the best ways to counter The Artist is to never let her corner you with her Dire Crows. (Picture: Behaviour Interactive)

Against some killers, it's a good idea to stay at one loop tile for as long as you can - but The Artist isn't one of those killers, thanks to her Dire Crows. Against The Artist, you should keep running at all times and avoid staying in one spot for too long since staying still is a great way to get caught off guard by her Dire Crows and make it easier for her to aim. If The Artist sets up a Dire Crow or a few in a loop tile, it's a good idea to move to a different one as soon as you can!

That's all you need to know to defeat The Artist in Dead by Daylight and escape trials more often against this deadly killer. Her Dire Crows can be intimidating, but you can overcome this killer with a little practice and game knowledge!
