William "Bill" Overbeck is the 8th survivor and was released in the "Left Behind" update in Dead By Daylight. William "Bill" Overbeck was left for dead, an elderly man, forced to spend his days fighting hordes of undead, a much needed savior for his group, and an unrelenting wave of destruction for the flesh eaters.
It took two tours in Vietnam, a handful of medals, a knee full of shrapnel, and an honorable discharge to get William "Bill" Overbeck to stop fighting and try to live a peaceful life. He hated it. After decades spent drifting aimlessly through dead end jobs, Bill went in for a routine surgery and woke up to find the world he knew was gone. A plague was turning normal people into mindless killing machines. Naturally, the first thing he did was fight his way home and put on his uniform. Making his way through rural ghost towns and pitch-black forests, he found other survivors, and together they fled from the infected hordes. In the end, Bill sacrificed himself to ensure their safety. His body was never found. Bill was left for dead. No one knows that he still has the only thing he ever wanted: an enemy to fight.
Bill is tough as nails and knows how to survive just about anything. He’ll do whatever it takes to help others live to see another day and he’s not afraid to take one for the team.
These are perks that start off only appearing in William's Bloodweb. Starting after achieving level 30, teachable versions of these perks can be found: Left Behind at level 30, Borrowed Time at level 35, and Unbreakable at level 40. If obtained, other survivors are able to find William's perks in their Bloodwebs from that point on.
|Borrowed Time||You are fueled by unexpected energy when saving an ally from a hook within the killer's terror radius. Once per match, after unhooking a survivor within the killer’s terror radius, any damage taken that would put you or the unhooked survivor into the dying state will instead trigger a bleedout timer. Taking any damage during the bleedout timer or reaching the end of the bleedout timer will put you into the dying state.
Unique to Bill until level 30, which its Teachable version can then be learned and taught to the other Survivors.
|Unbreakable||Past battles have taught you a thing or two about survival. Grants the ability to fully recover from the dying state once per trial. Increases dying recovery speed.
Unique to Bill until level 35, which its Teachable version can then be learned and taught to the other Survivors.
|Left Behind||You’ll get the job done… no matter the cost. If you are the last person remaining in the trial, for each generator that needs to be completed, gain a bonus to repair speed.
Unique to Bill until level 40, which its Teachable version can then be learned and taught to the other Survivors.
