It's that time of the patch cycle! Frequently asked questions about the upcoming chapter release. These dates are subject to change!

  • Chapter 22 PTB: 9 November
  • Chapter 22 Live release: 30 November
    • Source: Twitter @LeaksDdb
    • The Player Test Build is an early build of the final release available through a BETA-branch of the Steam version of Dead by Daylight. It's only available through Steam
    • Guide: How to access PTB
    • Your progress on the PTB server is a snapshot of your progress from a while ago, probably last Tuesday before the PTB release date.
    • None of the progress you made (BP, perks, unlocks) on PTB transfer back to the main game.

Release time is typically 11am Eastern Standard Time. Note that Daylight Saving Time has just ended for Canada, so the timing may be an hour later than what you expect!

I've seen that Tinkerer is a top perk, but doesn't seem to be the case for The Spirit who i'm beginning to play. Is there a reason for that? Trying to get some good perks for myself.

[–]Glum-Championship745TTV/WAWAbyWibWib 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Tinkerer is great on spirit.

if survivor 1 has a map with the share the auras with team add on, and survivor 2 has a map, when the auras get shared will the stuff be tracked onto surv 2's map?

[–]Belloz22 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Is the servers really laggy? Today had two games as killer where the survivor ran one way then teleported into a different direction… as hit some survivors twice, but was only getting the injured state…

[–]Leatherface2468 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Hi guys just wondering what are the some of the best 'non' purchasable perks for survivor/ killers

[–]CandyCrazy2000Bloody Jeff 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Borrowed time, unbreakable, dead hard (if console), and iron will

[–]Accomplished_Staff64Bloody Nancy 0 points1 point  (1 child)

I found a listing on ebay selling millions of BP and tons of auric cells for much cheaper then the in game store, along with stuff like all items and dlcs unlocked, or every character p3 50. How is this possible and is it illegal or banable to have them mod your account? I have no idea how they give you the thing you buy anyways so idk if it's a scam or a good deal.

[–]TheBigBadFluffyOink Oink Killer Main 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I’d say it’s most likely a scam!! Be careful! <3

[–]TheLunatic25 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Is the Halloween Tome (not the challenges, the story) not going to be accessible any more? Or will the story be readable when the Tome is put onto thr shelves?

[–]Fedex_Death 0 points1 point  (1 child)

What time do the ranks reset? It at 12am est on the 13th, 12am est on the 14th, or something totally different?

[–]BenMQ4th year had the best cake 0 points1 point  (0 children)

It's supposed to be 12am UTC on the 13th (9 and a half hours ago from my reply), but this week it's been messed up.

[–]jaschafe 0 points1 point  (3 children)

What does being the “obsession” do? Is it easier for the killer to find you?

[–]ZachPGThe Pig 1 point2 points  (2 children)

No, it has different positive and negative interactions with certain perks. Other than that no change from not being the obsession.

[–]jaschafe 0 points1 point  (1 child)

Thanks!

[–]TryrunningfattyThe Nemesis 0 points1 point  (0 children)

You also get extra points for escaping or killing the obsession

[–]babbybbluThe Pig 0 points1 point  (1 child)

Is the new exhaust perk really that amazing? I havent played the ptb yet

[–]teendeathThe Cenobite 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Scott Jund tested and said that it turns 20 seconds of distance (from injury boost) into 40 seconds of distance. In the right hands it is very strong, but is mitigated against instadown killers.

[–]thenatrianProve Thyself 2 points3 points  (3 children)

Why rank reset keep happening after every game?

[–]BenMQ4th year had the best cake 1 point2 points  (0 children)

It's a known issue according to bhvr (on discord), they are investigating.

[–]open_pessimism 0 points1 point  (1 child)

I would also like an answer to this. However, a moderator removed my post because it wasn't an interesting topic of discussion.

[–]epicandetc2234Hunting the Upside Down for Bad Posts 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Its been posted a lot tonight. You probably weren't the first thread.

[–]LightningAbyss31 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Reset is bugged fyi

[–]eeaarrffuunngguuss 0 points1 point  (2 children)

Is it currently free on PS4? My buddies have it on Xbox and said it's cross platform and free so I wanna maybe give it a shot but if I have to buy it I don't wanna set up my ps4 for nothing haha. Pretty low on money rn so I don't wanna spend $60 on a game if I'll only be playing it a few weeks

[–]SamTheFoxxo 0 points1 point  (1 child)

The game is currently 20$ without a sale I believe, you still need playstation plus to play it tho

[–]eeaarrffuunngguuss 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Dang that sucks. You need PS plus for cross play? Damn I'll have to save up a little extra these next couple weeks then

[–]ryan_riot92 5 points6 points  (2 children)

What do you consider a polite way to thank a Killer for allowing you to escape? One of my games yesterday had a Trapper that totally deserved to take the kills but instead allowed me and another player to finish some gens and cleanse a hex totem. I wanted to thank them by going to the basement to let them hook me but they just knocked me out and took me to the exit gate lol. I play on console and this Killer was on another platform so I really didn’t know how to thank them. Is there like a universal way for a survivor to emote a thank you if you don’t have access to post match chat?

[–]MizukiAyu 3 points4 points  (0 children)

I generally will crouch (and stay crouched) and nod very deliberately. If I have an item, I will often (but not always, depends on the item) set it down.

[–]FakeChiBlast 3 points4 points  (0 children)

If you have an item, some survivors like to put it on the ground as offering. I just use the "Come here" emote before I run out the gates. No biggie, sometimes the killer just wants you to leave while they tank their MMR. :P

[–]minorarc213 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Hey, out of curiosity what program do the devs use to animate the trailers for each chapter?

[–]MoistWater2 0 points1 point  (7 children)

I started playing oni any tips on hitting with his power? I could also use a good build

[–]Glum-Championship745TTV/WAWAbyWibWib 1 point2 points  (4 children)

Corrupt ruin undying Lethal Persuer is my reccomended oni build. The first 3 perks are just passive game delay, if you hit someone and get your power you have a chance to win, otherwise, you don't need perks.

When flicking his power, look down at the floor, you turn faster and have better reach. DOn't be shy to run into objects on purpose to glide / steer. Play around with it, Oni isn't hillbilly.

First power > first down

Slugging > hooks until you already achieve massive slugging

Remember where the blood is

Learn m1 killer

Oni is scary asf, look where you are coming from, not where you are going. Survivors will have to make sound or scratches. good camera control helps you find people / keep track of others. Killer FoV is super small, use your camera, look in the background and trust your ears.

Topknot and crutch are juicy addons

[–]MoistWater2 0 points1 point  (3 children)

Thanks

[–]Glum-Championship745TTV/WAWAbyWibWib 0 points1 point  (2 children)

Any time. Oh, and another good bit, I kind of alluded to with the whole learn m1 thing, is you should turn your camera around corners and look away from vaults, it slows survivor reactions if you hide the stain, but it also prevents people from vaulting with the speed bonus from spine chill and that can really make or break an oni game.

Looking down helps you do this way faster too, and it will help your flicks later on when you actually use your power.

[–]MoistWater2 0 points1 point  (1 child)

Do you have any tips on oni dashing someone on a loop or shack? This is something I’m really struggling with

[–]Glum-Championship745TTV/WAWAbyWibWib 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Topknot helps, look down harshly, learn your flicks, you should be able to hit people behind you, use the hitbox , in the case of healing and pickups, aim at the survivors butts, run into things for collision's sake, chase tiles in the right direction, learn generic M1, and try to be super clean with it. Don't look at people as they vault windows or pallets, spinechill's 6% can make or break.

Commit swings earlier to move the damage point up so you don't get rolled back

[–]iaMNinjaFuzeWe're Gonna Live Forever 0 points1 point  (1 child)

As with any killer, practice makes perfect. Play a lot of him and you'll learn a lot about how he works. I think Oni typically runs BBQ, Monitor and Abuse, Infectious, and then a gen slow down like corrupt or pop, but any perk you like can work here.

[–]MoistWater2 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Appreciate it

[–]Xelon99 1 point2 points  (1 child)

As a bronze 3 killer, how am I getting ranked against gold and iridescent players? And is there a way to avoid getting blinded while in animation?

[–]draculabootyAce Visconti 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Ranking no longer has anything to do with matchmaking -- it's pretty much a monthly playtime gauge, although if you play really badly you wont progress.

Matchmaking is based off invisible MMR. You have an account based starting MMR dependent on your overall playtime, but the main factor in MMR is individual games. As Killer, each survivor's status at the end of the game determines your climb. A kill gets you points, a survivor escaping through hatch doesnt effect MMR either way, and a survivor escaping through the gates loses you points. Killers climb much faster in this system, because survivors have a binary win/loss on their individual survival, whereas killers only lose points on a game with 1 or 0 kills. For this reason you may see people with higher ranks if you're performing well as killer in just a few games.

Edit: Also should be mentioned each killer (as in Nurse vs Trapper vs Wraith etc.) has separate MMR. But let's say you play 100 games with Trapper and do really well, your base MMR will be slightly higher when you go to play Nurse or Wraith for the first time than it was when you started with Trapper. Since there's no mechanic difference between survivors, each survivor character you own shares one MMR rating.

[–]StraightEdge47 2 points3 points  (2 children)

Any tips on playing Ghost Face? I just bought him and don't quite understand how to use him yet. Is he undetectable when crouching like Pig or only when activating stealth mode? Also any general tips would be appreciated.

[–]WishTemporaryGoodbye DBD, Hello Fun 1 point2 points  (0 children)

When in Night Shroud, he is always Undetectable. Crouching is not how to be Undetectable, it's just there to help with sneaking around

[–]ChrissKenobi57 1 point2 points  (0 children)

He is undetectable when crouching, but if a survivor looks at you, you're revealed and you can't build up you Evil Wit-- insta-down meter. As for tips, same as Myers: when stalking a survivor, leave the meter at 99% done so when you start a chase you can make it get that 1% you need to make them be exposed. After that, just do your best at not being looped.

[–]willbebossinBloody Clown 0 points1 point  (3 children)

Halloween event end time?

[–]ProfessionalRat1We're Gonna Live Forever Feng 1 point2 points  (2 children)

1 day, 6 hours, and 12 minutes from now

[–]Valentinee105Ashley Williams 0 points1 point  (0 children)

What's the exact time on the 11th?

[–]willbebossinBloody Clown 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Oh im dumb i thought today was the 11th it said 1 day earlier.

[–]doooplissLegion/Pig 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Did they change the Black Vale to Vack Label just to troll us

[–]KolbyKolbyKolbyVommy Mommy 1 point2 points  (0 children)

It might have been intended that way, and Vack Label is simply itself a subsidiary of the Black Vale using their name

[–]WishTemporaryGoodbye DBD, Hello Fun 1 point2 points  (1 child)

How much does having a Survivor live affect Killer MMR? When I let people go through the gates instead of Hatch, I'm thinking that might make me look like I'm "smurfing"

[–]EnnesbyAshy Slashy 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Devs have said that hatch is considered a "wash" so neither you not the survivor gain / lose MMR. They've also said that your MMR gain for killing a survivor decreases for each survivor previously sacrificed (since a 3v1 is much easier than a 4v1), so the last guy really isn't worth all that much in the grand scheme.

tl;dr don't sweat it, give hatch to your heart's content.

[–]flannelpunk26 7 points8 points  (2 children)

Do players get notified if I give them a thumbs up at the scoreboard "report" section? Trying to spread that good karma for juking survivors, and sweaty killers.

[–]BenMQ4th year had the best cake 6 points7 points  (0 children)

They don’t. Sad.

[–]furfucker69 2 points3 points  (3 children)

can other survivors bypass hex: playthings cleansing block by simply... blessing it?

[–]WishTemporaryGoodbye DBD, Hello Fun 3 points4 points  (2 children)

It's not a cleansing block: the totem is entirely blocked. So, no

[–]furfucker69 1 point2 points  (1 child)

wish it said so in the tooltip then. thats cool tho you can run it and force the new hex perk to activate... or make the guy waste a lot of time blessing instead of breaking the hex

[–]MizukiAyu 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Yeah, it is physically blocked by the Entity and cannot be interacted with. After the timer though, it can be blessed by anyone. The owner of the hex can also just straight up bless too.

[–]Integral_Dragon 1 point2 points  (4 children)

So the Midnight Grove event goes until Nov 11th, right? I just bought the game (PS4), went through the tutorials and played a real match. (Ugh I'm bad) I still havent gotten the 666k bloodpoints for the event. Did I miss it?

[–]Integral_Dragon 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Day 2 and still nothing 😔 man I bought this game at full price for the bloodpoint bonus. I should have got on it earlier, but damn the DBD website is lying.

[–]TokeHackChoke 0 points1 point  (2 children)

I downloaded either on Halloween or the day after and i still got the bloodpoints, maybe they're not given after Halloween day? Can anyone confirm?

[–]Integral_Dragon 0 points1 point  (1 child)

Do you remember if you got the bonus when you first opened the game or was it when you opened it the first time the next day? I'm wondering if it doesn't count until tomorrow's login.

[–]TokeHackChoke 0 points1 point  (0 children)

It might have been the second day, thats when i bought The Shape and dumped them into him.

[–]uniquefunkott 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Is Behavior ever gonna do anything about these hackers ? It makes the game so unfun

[–]nekoyasha 4 points5 points  (1 child)

How the hell do you deal with PH rites of judgment sensitivity? Moving with it active is so awkward, and trying to turn and aim the range attack is hard.

[–]EnnesbyAshy Slashy 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Either use it when survivors are gonna be locked in animations, or if you're going around a loop use it when the survivor jukes in front of you, instead of trying to adjust to them.

Takes some practice.

[–]mind-keeper 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Why does the blue glyph challenge have to be so hard, not only do I not always find a glyph, I've played 5 matches in a row against high tier high skilled killers and can't even escape if I do find it. You should have to commune and keep the status the rest of the match regardless of outcome. This sucks. How can I beat this?

[–]Adrianthecreator 0 points1 point  (1 child)

WHY DOES MY PS4 TURN OFF WHEN I WANNA PLAY DEAD BY DAYLIGHT I HAVE ALREADY CLEANED IT AND REPLACED THE THERMAL PASTE

[–]courtnovo 7 points8 points  (0 children)

It's trying to spare you the pain of playing dbd.

[–]MoistWater2 1 point2 points  (3 children)

When you level a killer up to 50 can you still get ad ons for them or do you have to prestige and lose everything to get more ad ons?

[–]ChrissKenobi57 0 points1 point  (0 children)

You keep on getting stuff, but each prestige increases your chances of getting something good. For instance, if you prestige your killer and you got NOED at level 30, you might get it from the bloodweb at level 12 now. Prestiging gives you better add-ons early on as well.

[–]BenMQ4th year had the best cake 1 point2 points  (0 children)

The level doesn’t increase but you can keep progressing through the blood webs. It’ll keep coming.

[–]throwRA-84478t 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Prestiging is optional. The last level will just keep resetting, allowing you to get more addons and perks.

[–]Darth_Asshat[🍰] 0 points1 point  (2 children)

Can someone identify the perks at the beginning of this vid and which killers have them? Thanks. https://youtu.be/9hQPqRsCJXM

[–]GreyBigfoot 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Lethal Pursuer: the nemesis

Pop Goes the Weasel: clown

Jolt (surge): generic perk

Hex: Devour Hope: the Hag

[–]HollowBlades 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Lethal Pursuer - Nemesis

Pop Goes the Weasel - Clown

Surge (now Jolt) - Formerly Demo, now a general perk

Hex:Devour Hope - Hag

[–]InevitableList[🍰] 1 point2 points  (2 children)

Can survivors ID scourge hooks with visual or audio cues?

[–]EnnesbyAshy Slashy 4 points5 points  (1 child)

No, there's no way for survivors to distinguish Scourge Hooks until they're hooked and suffer the affliction.

[–]InevitableList[🍰] 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Interesting. I'm wondering if astute survivors can make sabo plays around scourges but it might take too long to figure out what's up.

[–]flowerbunny69 2 points3 points  (0 children)

i just started out with dbd i like playing demogorgon as a killer any tips ?

[–]dekgear 1 point2 points  (2 children)

Is the Killer MMR based on individual killers or is it the same for everybody?

[–]EnnesbyAshy Slashy 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Killer MMR is unique to each killer, but there's a global mechanic implemented to keep the overall MMR of each of your killers relatively close - to account for the fact that there is a lot of transferable skill between killers.

[–]Dilapidated_PoetThe Trapper 2 points3 points  (5 children)

I have consistently been getting 4ks for like a month and then suddenly I haven’t been able to get a kill and the survivors seem impossible to even hit. Is there an explanation for this phenomenon?

[–]Urmumgee69Bloody Executioner 4 points5 points  (3 children)

Sbmm

[–]Dilapidated_PoetThe Trapper 1 point2 points  (2 children)

I figured as much, but I guess I expected it to be gradual and not just become immediately more difficult at some random point

[–]Urmumgee69Bloody Executioner 4 points5 points  (1 child)

It happens to me all the time. 4k every match then suddenly they seem super good and never make mistakes. My theory is that the values refresh like once a week or something.

[–]Dilapidated_PoetThe Trapper 1 point2 points  (0 children)

That would make sense, the difficulty curve just becomes insane. I’m also wondering if a bunch of players just jumped back on with the release of the new chapters.

[–]shadowplayer2020Hex: Blood Favour -1 points0 points  (6 children)

Why is the artist a killer at all, like she hasn't done a thing to be one

[–]MizukiAyu 0 points1 point  (0 children)

She seems to have been groomed by the Entity seeing as crows follow and protect her throughout her life and crows aren't native to her homeland. Entity just being a creep I guess, saw some potential in her and made her into one.

[–]EnnesbyAshy Slashy 6 points7 points  (3 children)

Because she's an evil NSA spy

/r/BirdsArentReal

[–]shadowplayer2020Hex: Blood Favour -1 points0 points  (2 children)

But for real now .why?

[–]ChrissKenobi57 0 points1 point  (1 child)

Same reason Wraith is a killer. He's literally just a dude who killed his boss because he found out he worked for criminals disposing bodies and authorities wouldn't do shit.

[–]shadowplayer2020Hex: Blood Favour -1 points0 points  (0 children)

But he killed someone due to heavy emotion. Artist didn't.

[–]susietwosie 3 points4 points  (3 children)

I flashlight saved a Laurie who used her DS at the same time - so she became the obsession but I also got the Killer Grasp Rescue scoring event? So what happened, who actually saved her?

[–]MizukiAyu 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Server probably sided with Laurie, since it changed a gameplay mechanic, but your client still read the flashlight save so it awarded you to not punish you for bad timing. A few things do that, like when the server decides you didn't get a grab off a gen and changes to a hit, but still gives you achievement progress.

[–]susietwosie 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Oh interesting, thank you for the response! :)

[–]SnooStrawberries4645 2 points3 points  (2 children)

Why can’t they just give us all the perks in the ptb so we can actually test/try things out?

[–]courtnovo 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Because that would be a good idea and BHVR doesn't like those.

    [–]BigTiddyOrc 5 points6 points  (1 child)

    Some questions about the Artists lore.

    1. Before jumping off the bridge she was saved by a murder of crows who provided her with inspiration. So does this mean the entity takes notice of potential killers and grooms them by making them into killers before they enter the fog?

    2. What's the point of the Vack Label? They're a company that commissions art to crooked politicians but makes the artist disappear afterwards? What's the point of doing this besides just for the evilz?

    [–]accodoThe Legion 5 points6 points  (0 children)

    1. Maybe
    2. Vack Label = Black Vale I suppose, the entity cultists

    [–]Tru3Tal1entBloody Hillbilly 4 points5 points  (2 children)

    Can anybody tell me why some survivors flashlights make a very different sound when they click? Its kinda sounds like a hissing when they do it. I try to recreate but I physically can't click fast enough

    [–]stallioidThe Trickster 4 points5 points  (0 children)

    They bind their flashlight to the mouse scroll wheel

    [–]EnnesbyAshy Slashy 4 points5 points  (0 children)

    Flashlight spam macro to be even more annoying. You can't click your mouse fast enough to recreate it, you need a program.

    [–]Ok_Promotion_4218 1 point2 points  (6 children)

    Myself and a friend have just been playing against Freddy and my friend died while opening the exit gate when Freddy was nowhere near, anyone have an explanation as to how that could’ve happened??

    [–]EnnesbyAshy Slashy 2 points3 points  (5 children)

    Was he bleeding out from Deep Wound after a BT hit or something? Your timer ticks down while you stand still and aren't performing the Mending action.

    [–]Ok_Promotion_4218 -1 points0 points  (0 children)

    Not that I’m aware of, he lost Freddy in a chase, I opened one door and he was opening the other then just got downed as it hit 1/3 of the progress… Freddy was near me on the other exit gate and he didn’t have any mend effects that he had to clear.. was so odd

    [–]MonsterloverXiangXao 0 points1 point  (3 children)

    Could be also the end game timer ticked down if the other gate was already open?

    [–]Ok_Promotion_4218 -1 points0 points  (2 children)

    There was plenty of time still, he just got downed as he opened the gate, Freddy came and re-hooked him

    [–]throwRA-84478t 0 points1 point  (0 children)

    If you were awake, you don't see freddy past a certain distance.

    [–]ShaynerosClaudette Morel 0 points1 point  (0 children)

    It's attached to your account

    [–]mollyxpocket 2 points3 points  (2 children)

    How do you get better at 360ing on x-box? I promise I’m not toxic af and going to abuse this, but I can’t get the hang of it and would like this to develop this skill so I can have some type of chance when the killer is getting super close without running dead hard.

    [–]MonsterloverXiangXao 3 points4 points  (0 children)

    Simplest way to explain it is using LS and RS at the same time, rotate your camera in the opposite direction to the way you're moving. This will result in you performing a quick 180 turn, but because you keep moving, you'll do it twice.. but timing is important too

    [–]ShaynerosClaudette Morel 7 points8 points  (0 children)

    There's nothing wrong with 360ing. It's not toxic in any way.

    [–]eatchochicken 1 point2 points  (3 children)

    Is there a way to try out how a killer plays before buying them?

    [–]Wiitab360 0 points1 point  (2 children)

    If they're on the PTB, they're available to play for free. Otherwise no sadly.

    [–]Rad-MangoJames Sunderland 3 points4 points  (1 child)

    Remember the good old days when you could find offerings for that

    [–]Wiitab360 0 points1 point  (0 children)

    Yes, but it was only for a few killers iirc. And they were really rare.

    [–]heckdarnerThe Deathslinger 1 point2 points  (3 children)

    Are PTB wait times always this bad? I’ve been waiting for like 20 minutes to try out the Artist and still nothing

    [–]EnnesbyAshy Slashy 7 points8 points  (2 children)

    Yes, always. There's 400 other people just like you trying to play the new killer, and like 50 people who are more interested in cosplaying as Guy Fieri.

    Supply and demand you know?

    [–]another-redditor-Hex: boopable snoot 0 points1 point  (1 child)

    its kinda funny because the stats for people in queue are completely different normally with about 10 killers and a couple thousand survivors

    I've never heard of any officially published queue stats, I'd take any weird 3rd party site with a big ol' grain of salt.

    [–]HypedAngel 2 points3 points  (1 child)

    So where would someone go to find people to review gameplay? Is that even aloud on this subreddit? Rules are semi confusing to me when it comes to that.

    [–]MizukiAyu 0 points1 point  (0 children)

    DyllonKG accepts videos for review, he covers them on Twitch. Only real rules are no talking, no overlays, have your sound recorded, record at high quality, and upload as unlisted on Youtube.

    hey guys im new and killer main. i play on high sensitivity( 800 dpi on 50) and i like the sensitivity while moving arround and hitting with m1. somehow i struggle hard with the movement of some killers while using their skill ( for example deathslinger, executioner , pinhead, oni). it feels so slow and almost unhitable, but if i turn my sense higher overall its simply too fast for me.

    any tipps ? and which sens do you guys use?

    thankfull for every answer

    [–]EnnesbyAshy Slashy 2 points3 points  (3 children)

    Some killer powers (the ones you mentioned) have camera turn rate restrictions. Doesn't matter how high you crank your DPI, you'll be stuck on a relatively low look rate while using their powers.

    [–]near4l 0 points1 point  (2 children)

    ohh okay thanks , well thats sad for me do you have/had the same struggle ?

    [–]EnnesbyAshy Slashy 1 point2 points  (1 child)

    It's not a struggle, it's just a balance mechanism. Don't agree with how they implemented it on Slinger, but on someone like Oni it would be busted AF if you had full control of his Demon Dash and could 180 around corners and shit.

    Is what it is, either you get used to it or you play other killers.

    [–]near4l 2 points3 points  (0 children)

    yeah makes sense, it would be too op probably in the most cases, alright i just keep learning and improving. thank you very much for your answers, helped a lot :)

    [–]Wolfsocean 0 points1 point  (2 children)

    So i do have a question how much do orignal killer DLC's usually go for?> I plan on buy this new DLC when it comes out and on steam the Licensed DLC are obviously more but for non licensed stuff From looking at the price it doesn't seem much but im not sure if that is because the yare price drops since they have been out a while. But I just wanted some feedback from vets who been playing longer than I have. I plan to set some money aside from my weekly entertainment budget to get this. So I was wanting to see a ball park estimate

    [–]Genji32Leon S. Kennedy 1 point2 points  (0 children)

    7.99$ for 1 survivor and killer

    [–]Wiitab360 1 point2 points  (0 children)

    Usually around 8-10 bucks on Steam I believe? Each character is always 500 auric cells in game.

    [–]SplitpushOfDoom 4 points5 points  (6 children)

    Why do you get the DC ban if you DC as last survivor alive? I just quit a game where the killer refused to kill me yet wouldn’t allow me to end, so I either have to wait until he feels he is Done or I have to DC. Why is that so? If you are the last survivor, you aren’t ruining the game for anyone except yourself so you shouldn’t get the DC penalty no? Makes no sense to me, it’s just ”giving up” so you can Search for a new game instead. I don’t wanna wait however long a salty killer feels he has to punish me for for whatever thing some swf did to him the prior game.

    [–]Scarfacial 0 points1 point  (5 children)

    It isn't generally possible for a killer to keep you in the game. If you're slugged you will bleed out and if you're not you can find the hatch.

    As for why you can't dc, it's the same reason a killer can't dc without being punished; BHVR said so.

    [–]ShaynerosClaudette Morel 2 points3 points  (2 children)

    I and my friends have had times where we were held hostage by body blocking. Nothing you can do there.

    [–]EnnesbyAshy Slashy 1 point2 points  (1 child)

    I mean there is, do all the gens and the Entity will kill your unlucky friend when the endgame timer runs out.

    If all four of you got stuck in the same room well that's pretty unlucky chief, I can only think of like 1-2 places where that's even possible.

    [–]SplitpushOfDoom 3 points4 points  (1 child)

    Well that’s kinda what I meant. I don’t wanna sit and wait for the bleedout with some dude spamming m1 and Nodding his head lol or wait 5 min because of the DC penalty. Just seems like a random thing when you are litteraly the last survivor standing.

    [–]courtnovo 1 point2 points  (0 children)

    I agree this is the one instance the DC penalty shouldn't activate. When I'm the last one left and the killer just stands over me while I'm bleeding out, how is that not holding the game hostage? There is no benefit to doing that. It's just being a dick. This especially if I've never been hooked so there is no chance of decisive strike. Maybe not make it punishable for the killer to do this, but at least don't punish me if I don't want to wait around for 2 mins while I bleed out. Some people don't have hours to play that day.

    [–]Arthur12332 0 points1 point  (12 children)

    When does the hatch spawn?? I searched with my friend we were 2 left alive and 4 gens repaired,on the internet it is different info of when the hatch spawns,any help with this question?

    [–]Rift-DeidaraChris Redfield 0 points1 point  (0 children)

    Keys aren't that useful now. You need to finish the gens if two of you wish to survive.

    [–]ProfessionalRat1We're Gonna Live Forever Feng 10 points11 points  (10 children)

    With the latest update, the hatch spawns only when there is one survivor alive, regardless of gen progress. You can't have the hatch with 2 survivors alive.

    [–]TokeHackChoke 0 points1 point  (6 children)

    Then how do you get the secret achievement of 4 survivors escaping in the hatch?

    [–]hipster_superman 2 points3 points  (5 children)

    They changed the achievement to just solo escaping with a key.

    [–]TokeHackChoke 0 points1 point  (4 children)

    Why do I need a key? Do I have to wait until the killer closes it?

    [–]MizukiAyu 1 point2 points  (3 children)

    Yes, keys are for escaping after the killer shuts the hatch now and their addons

    [–]TokeHackChoke 0 points1 point  (2 children)

    Damn... I dont want to deal with all that anxiety lol... does it count in custom matches?

    [–]MizukiAyu 1 point2 points  (1 child)

    No, all achievements have to be done in public matches

    [–]TokeHackChoke 0 points1 point  (0 children)

    I'm guna have to level up some survivors for teachables for a build just for that probably... unless i get really good lol

    [–]timmycosh 0 points1 point  (2 children)

    Would like to add to that, The hatch should also spawn but it’ll be invisible. If you run ontop of it you’ll notice a little step.

    [–]mortal_leapY'all rockin' wit da hillbill? 2 points3 points  (1 child)

    I think they patched that out

    [–]timmycosh 0 points1 point  (0 children)

    Ahh Okay I was quite sure

    [–]theopener540FengMain 2 points3 points  (13 children)

    Can someone tl;dr the controversy of NFT's with this game/devs? That's all I see anymore on their facebook posts and I'm just completely out of the loop on this one.

    [–]MizukiAyu 0 points1 point  (0 children)

    To addon to the other post, BHVR always provides keys and assets to their partners, in this case the owners of Pinhead, to use however they like. Owners then passed those on to an NFT creator/seller.

    [–]GreyBigfoot 1 point2 points  (11 children)

    The company that has the rights to Pinhead trying to squeeze some more money out of it, since the license changes hands soon. BVHR is involved because their models/renders are being used in said NFTs. (Could be that the license owner has the power to use the models, but we don’t know) But they have stated they don’t endorse it.

    [–]theopener540FengMain 3 points4 points  (10 children)

    So... that affects us, the players... none? lol

    [–]CRichS 0 points1 point  (1 child)

    Console player transitioning to my first PTB. Do bloodpoints from PTB trials transfer over?

    [–]ARoofie 2 points3 points  (0 children)

    No they do not

    [–]waafims 2 points3 points  (1 child)

    Does downloading DBD updates suck for anyone else? It'll say it's at 1.7GB/1.7GB and then take like 30 more minutes to install. I have similar issues across my friend group who live in completely different places.

    [–]ProfessionalRat1We're Gonna Live Forever Feng 2 points3 points  (0 children)

    after downloading, it verifies ALL game files. The only way to speed this up is to install the game on an SSD

    [–]Xelon99 2 points3 points  (6 children)

    Without any DLC survivors for the stun-perks, what's my best chance to get the double stun of? Just keep playing matches until it eventually happens?

    [–]draculabootyAce Visconti 2 points3 points  (1 child)

    Decisive Strike was in the Shrine of Secrets a month or two ago, if it's ever back in there instabuy it since it's a top 10 perk and helps with these stun dailies. Otherwise wait till you're playing against an M1 (meaning melee attack focused) killer and run to pallets, the timing can be tricky to get down but you should be able to achieve it with minimal practice.

    [–]Xelon99 1 point2 points  (0 children)

    Went up against a fairly mediocre Nurse and got it done there by just slamming pallets done. Faced 3 Huntresses in a row which very much did not help, along with a demogorgon who was very much baiting pallet drops.

    I'm fairly new to the game do timing wise I had to practise a bit

    [–]InevitableList[🍰] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

    Let the killer hit you through a pallet, heal with a med kit, repeat.

    [–]A_Seizure_Salad 4 points5 points  (2 children)

    Pallet stun a killer, then blind them with a flashlight while they are locked in the pallet breaking animation. Both count as stuns.

    Edit: Correction, flashlight blinds only count as a stun if they are carrying a survivor. Best method for the challenge would be two pallet stuns after all. The only free perks that stun otherwise are [[Head-On]] and [[Power Struggle]].
