Dead By Daylight Hatch Locations
Everything about Dead by Daylight pushes you to the limit, forcing you to survive the night and escape before the killer gets to you. Since escaping the forest is your only hope, you will need all the help you can get in identifying the procedurally generated Dead by Daylight hatches (trapdoors) or activating the generators that operate the huge metal door locking you in.
You will need all generators repaired and running before opening the great metal doors. This is quite the tall order. Hatches, on the other hand, will spawn once you are the sole survivor of the game. All you have to do is outwit the killer, survive and be at the right time when you are the last person standing.
The Dead by Daylight World is Procedural
You will have to note that all hatch locations Dead by Daylight hints are just calculated guesses from the repeated study of the game. Since the game uses code to procedurally generate the world, it is fair to say that the Dead by Daylight escape hatch locations are to some extent random.

Some of the Dead by Daylight hatch locations are easy to pinpoint since the hatches tend to spawn at a specific region every time. It would be wise to hide out the game at such positions to increase your chances of getting to the hatch and escaping. Beware that the pressure will be at the moment you are the sole survivor and you will have less time to escape with your life.
