About the Monster

The Dreamer appears in the single player campaign as an apparition and screamer. Its first appearance is at the beginning of the "You Will Die..." sequence, right after killing Mace and retrieving the key from its stomach. Then, after escaping the first Sawrunner chase, Simon will enter a building with plenty of rooms. When entering one room in particular and heading back, the Dreamer will burst from the room's door while making a high-pitched scream.

The Dreamer only appears as an enemy in the co-op campaign Manhunt, when entering the forest section of the campaign the cops will encounters many of these enemies.



  • Despite being identified as a woman, the model texture shows a man face with beard.
  • The apparition was inspired by a nightmare ruMpel had whilst working on the map she appears in. A woman in red screamed in his face as he answered the door. Despite not appreciating the use of jumpscares as a cheap horror device, he decided to implement her into the game as it was directly from his own imagination.
