During this time, players can enjoy a more festive in-game experience, where Generators and Hooks are outfitted with a suite of fireworks to better match the vibe of the season. These will go off when generators have been completed, or if a Survivor has been hooked.

Dead by Daylight Lurking Stripes items and offerings

The main focus of the event will be on collecting Lunar offerings in the form of hóngbāo. These iconic Red Envelopes represent good luck and prosperity in many East Asian cultures and will reflect that in-game by rewarding players with additional Bloodpoints.

Available within your Bloodweb, the Red Envelope offering can be used to spawn it in your next Trial.

  • All players will be able to claim the envelope, but only one person can do so (unless you’re interacting with your own).
  • During a match, the Aura of your envelope will be visible to you. Upon interacting with it, it will reveal its location to all other players.
  • Once it’s been claimed by someone else, both you and that player will receive a varying amount of Bloodpoints, called ‘Tiger’s Blessing’, along with the owner of that envelope receiving one of the eight Lunar cosmetics.

While the Festive Toolbox may have a much faster repair rate than some of its other counterparts, it’s also a little noisier, too.

As well as Red Envelopes, there’s also two new items that Survivors can use, too, each providing its own positives and negatives within a Trial:

Item Results
Festive Toolbox
  • 32 charges, and repair speed is increased by 50%. Also unlocks the ‘sabotage’ action.
  • Great Skill Checks detonate a small cluster of fireworks, whereas Failed Skill Checks send off fireworks,
Chinese Firecracker
  • Detonates into loud bangs and intense light flashes. Can be used as a distraction, or to temporarily blind Killers.
