Dead By Daylight Adds New Streamer Mode - How To Use

One of Dead by Daylight fans’ most wanted features for years has been Streamer Mode. Streamer Mode, as players have suggested it, would allow streamers more anonymity and thus protect them and those they play with from harassment. 

Finally, Behaviour Interactive has answered fans’ wishes, and Streamer Mode has been added to the 6.2.0 Public Test Build.

If all goes well, it will be added to the live version of the game. In this article, we’ll go over all of the features included in Streamer Mode and how to turn it on.

Dead by Daylight’s Streamer Mode allows players to customize their Dead by Daylight experience while streaming to protect themselves from harassment. In Streamer Mode, you can toggle seeing your name, and other players’ names and even add a short, random delay when matchmaking. 

You can toggle each feature to your liking, so you don’t have to turn all of them on if you don’t want to. 

Streamer Mode includes the following features:

  • Anonymous Mode

    • Replaces your account name with your selected character's name for other players. Players in your group will still see your account name.

  • Hide Your Name

    • Replaces your own name with your selected character's name on your own screen. Elsewhere in the menus, your account name will appear as "You" and be hidden in your Friend List.

  • Hide Other Player Names

    • Replaces other player names with their selected character's name.

  • Hidden Matchmaking Delay

    • Adds a short, random delay when entering the matchmaking queue to prevent targeted in-game harassment.

Streamer Mode joins the 6.2.0 Public Test Build alongside the Project W chapter characters, including Albert Wesker, known as The Mastermind, and survivors Ada Wong and Rebecca Chambers.
