How To Use Paper Lanterns In Dead by Daylight

Paper Lanterns grant bonuses to players who interact with them during the Moonlight Burrow event, so you might be wondering how to use them during the Lunar New Year celebration. Thankfully, it's easy to use Paper Lanterns in Dead by Daylight.

All you'll need to do is look throughout the trial to find Paper Lanterns. Once you find one, approach it and touch it using the interaction button shown. You'll immediately receive the bonuses upon touching the Paper Lantern as a killer or survivor, including faster speed and faster Vaulting speed.

Both killers and survivors can interact with Paper Lanterns, making this not only a fun way to celebrate the Lunar New Year but also an incredibly interesting game mechanic! It might be worth considering how you can pair survivor builds or killer builds to make the most of the Paper Lanterns.

That's all you need to do in order to interact with Paper Lanterns in Dead by Daylight to gain rewards in the trial, including the Haste status effect and increased vaulting speed.
