Hooked on You Romance Guide – How to romance all the Dead by Daylight Killers

Ever wanted to romance and kiss of the Dead by Daylight killers? Well, now you can thanks to Hooked On You, a dating simulator game that helps players guide their affections towards their favourite Killers in the hope that they’ll experience a romance of a lifetime… or die trying.

Hooked On You sadly doesn’t offer the full roster when it comes to Dead by Daylight Killers, but it does offer you four of the very best. We are, of course, talking about The Huntress, The Wraith, The Spirit and The Trapper.

All Killers are available to romance in Hooked On You, but first players will need to make the right dialogue choices and try their best at the mini-games provided to make their love (or lust) stand out from the crowd. Because there are multiple different endings for each Killer, however, getting the romance ending for your favourite bunch of psychopaths is much harder than it looks.

Thankfully, we’re here to help! Our guide isn’t fully complete at the moment, but we’ll continue to update it as we continue to discover new and exciting things about each romance route, and the endings you can experience.

Hooked On You Romance Guide – The Trapper Romance

If The Trapper could be summarized in a way that was positive and not at all disturbing, then he wouldn’t be The Trapper, now would he?

Yes indeed, The Trapper is the gnarliest Killer of all the romance options that are available and if you want even a sliver of a chance with him, you’re going to have to portray yourself as the nastiest, most evil, Dwight-kicking son-of-a-gun that lives on Murderers Island. If that’s not your cup of tea, then you might want to go for The Wraith or even The Spirit instead.

But if that’s exactly what you look for in your Killers, then read on.

How to get the best ending for The Trapper romance in Hooked On You

There are 3 different endings you can get with all of the Killers you meet, but the best ending is obviously the one where The Trapper doesn’t kill you and puts on a spit. Instead he just declares his love for you. Aw, isn’t that nice?

Now as we’re looking for only the best options, we’ve noted down all of the things you should say to in order to get into Evan Macmillan’s (spoiler?) huge pants. But before we show you these notes, here’s a few things to keep in mind if you want to romance The Trapper.

  • He admires strength
  • He likes if you’re horrible to Claudette, Dwight and The Wraith
  • He is a bit of a tsundere
  • Try your best to score high on mini-games to earn more approval

With that in mind, here’s all of the dialogue choices we made in order to appeal to the Trapper’s blackened, barely-beating-at-all heart. And be aware, there may be some spoilers ahead.
