Dead by Daylight – The Saw® Chapter

Dead by Daylight – The Saw® Chapter

“At first I actually believed that it was a pig that slept in front of me on the ground. An animal that somehow had eluded the banalities of my old life and managed to end up at this forsaken and forgotten the place. But then it rose, from crouch to standing, with its lifeless eyes nailed to my person. I ran, as I have so brutally learned to do. My curiosity halted my escape after a few feet and I hid in a cabinet. The Pig moved like a predator – and I saw: a human body wearing a pig’s head as an ornament. It walked by the cabinet and its snout was just a few inches away from me. I held my breath, aching for freedom. A sudden sound caught the pig’s attention and it walked away. But not without giving me a last, final glance, as if it wanted to inform me that I was given a second chance. I will not get a third.”

Amanda Young, also known as The Pig, is the eleventh killer in Dead By Daylight. She was introduced as the Killer of CHAPTER VII: The SAW™ Chapter a Chapter DLC released on 23 January 2018.

She originates from the 2004 Horror Movie franchise of the same name, SAW


When John Kramer, better known as Jigsaw, planned for his son to be born during the Chinese Zodiac’s Year of the Pig, he wanted it to represent fertility and rebirth; a new beginning for him and his wife, and the start of a charmed life for his son. But that plan was shattered on the night that a junkie broke into his wife’s clinic, hoping to score.

After this event resulted in the death of his unborn son, John finally caught up with the junkie, making him his first test subject, and the Pig was changed forever too. It became a representation of the disease that was rotting John from the inside, a reminder that we are just meat unless we elevate ourselves by our actions, by grasping life from the jaws of death. The Pig became a vessel, an agent of Jigsaw, conveying the subjects to their test. For some of those who emerged victorious, the Pig could still be a rebirth, into their new lives as apprentices, even disciples, of Jigsaw.

That was the case for Amanda Young, a troubled soul, whose life had been a catalogue of harm, both to herself and those around her. That changed when she faced, and bested, Jigsaw’s test. Deciding her life was worth something, she became devoted to Jigsaw’s cause, ready to take over when cancer consumed him.

But she became more dependant on John, her anguish at his impending death combining with a belief that their test subjects weren't capable of saving themselves, of being reborn in the crucible of the games.

Seeing this, John presented her with another game, another chance to save herself, but Amanda let her rage and jealousy rule her actions. She failed the test and took a bullet as a consequence.

Bleeding out on the tiled floor, darkness engulfed Amanda’s vision, accompanied by a sound like creaking wood. Then she was in a forest, once more viewing the world through the eyes of a Pig. Trees surrounded her, their branches clawing at her from all sides. Waves of panic washed over her and she could hear her breath reverberating inside the mask.

Had she been damned, cursed to spend her days here, in this guise? Or maybe this was another test? Maybe she hadn't failed at all? John always thought one step ahead of everyone else, planned for every eventuality, and he would never give up on her, surely?

Jigsaw may have gone but he had passed her onto another. A being for whom she would be The Pig again.

Ultimately, she saw now that she had been right in the choices she had made. The time for games was over. There was no chance of redemption for any of them. They were meat, and meat was destined to die.

Tips Edit

  • The Reverse Bear Trap's main purpose is not to kill Survivors, but stall them. Use them as distraction tools to force Survivors to lose time and make mistakes.
  • Avoid using all of your Reverse bear traps at the beginning of the game. Leave at least two to deny two survivors to escape via the exit gates at the end of the game.
  • They make for very good endgame tools, since hanging a trapped Survivor attracts others that have not been trapped and the rescued survivor won't be able to exit the trial.
  • It's easy to keep track of trapped survivors, since the RBTs make different noises constanly while the Survivor walks or runs.
  • Though crouching removes the pigs terror radius, perks like Object of obsession and Spine chill will able survivors to sense your presence even while in crouch.
  • Once you see a survivor you can try to manipulate them by crouching, which turns your terror radius off, and waiting for them alongside a point of interest that is close by.
  • survivors with sprint burst will be able to avoid your ambush attack. predict ahead of time where the survivor will run deny them the safety from your ambush.
