Dead by Daylight’s Mid-Chapter update went live a few minutes ago, and with it came some significant changes to a number of in-Trial and out-of-Trial features. Perhaps most noteworthy are the changes to med-kits, which will now be significantly weaker when used to self-heal, and the QoL improvements to the Bloodweb.

It’s a long list of changes, so we’ve summarized the key ones below. It’s not an exhaustive list (although it’s pretty close), but you can scroll down to see the full patch notes!

Scourge Hook: Pain Resonance

You start the Trial with 4 tokens. The first time each Survivor is placed on a Scourge Hook, lose 1 token. When you lose a token, the Generator with the most progress explodes, instantly losing 15%/20%/25% progress, and begins to regress. Once you have no tokens, Pain Resonance deactivates for the rest of the Trial.

Gearhead

After a Survivor loses a health state by any means, Gearhead activates for 30 seconds. While Gearhead is active, the every time a Survivor performs a good Skill Check while repairing, their Aura is revealed to you for 6/7/8 seconds.

Boon: Circle of Healing

Any Survivors within the Boon Totem’s range gain a 50%/75%/100% healing speed bonus to healing others. Med-Kits do not stack with Boon: CoH. Injured Survivors have their Auras revealed to all other Survivors when inside the Boon Totem’s range.

Dead Hard

Dead hard activates after you are unhooked or unhook yourself. Press the Active Ability button 1 while running to gain the Endurance status effect for the next 0.5 seconds. Causes the Exhausted Status Effect for 60/50/40 seconds. Dead Hard then deactivates.

Overzealous

After cleansing or blessing any totem, this Perk activates. Your Generator repair speed is increased by 8%/9%/10%. This bonus is doubled if you cleanse/bless a Hex totem. This Perk deactivates when you lose a health state by any means.

Call of Brine

After kicking a generator this perk becomes active for 60 seconds. The Generator regresses at 115%/120%/125% of the normal regression speed and you can see its aura in yellow. Each time a Survivor completes a good Skill Check on a Generator affected by this Perk, you receive a loud noise notification.

Overcharge

Overcharge a generator by performing the Damage Generator action. The next Survivor interacting with that Generator is faced with a difficult Skill Check. Failing the Skill Check results in an additional

2%/3%/4% loss of progress. Succeeding the Skill Check grants no progress, but prevents the Generator explosion. After Overcharge is applied to a generator, its regression speed increases from 85% of normal to 130% of normal over the next 30 seconds.

You asked for it for a long time, and it’s finally here: using the Bloodweb has been made much simpler!

  • By default, nodes can now be claimed by pressing them rather than holding. If you want to revert to the old method, a setting in the Accessibility tab allows you to toggle between Press and Hold.
  • Hovering the cursor over any node in the Bloodweb that is not currently purchasable shows a red outline of a path of nodes leading up to it and displays the total Bloodpoints needed to buy all those nodes.
  • Pressing/holding on any such node automatically purchases all the nodes one-by-one on the hovered path. This may not complete if purchasing all nodes becomes limited by your Bloodpoint total or the Entity consuming nodes alon the way.
  • After reaching Prestige 1 with a character, the Bloodweb for that character will contain a new center node. Pressing/holding on it will automatically claim as much as possible of the whole Bloodweb level. The automation will prioritize Perks first and attempt to spend the minimum amount of Bloodpoints second. This will stop if you run out of Bloodpoints, but will continue with The Entity consuming nodes.

We’ve done the following fixes since PTB:

  • Leaving the Bloodweb menu during Automated Purchasing no longer breaks the Bloodweb.
  • Cancelling Automated Purchasing no longer breaks the Bloodweb.

  • Fixed some interaction issues related to the new Bloodweb center node to purchase nodes automatically.
  • Fixed a softlock when collecting a node in the Bloodweb when starting a Matchmaking at the same time as a Killer.
  • Anonymous Mode is now available on consoles.
  • The “Hide Player Names” setting now also hides the Killer name in Custom Games.
  • Cinematic video files are now stored in Bink format.
  • The Undetectable effect now mutes the audio progressively in all cases, to mimic the Killer moving away. Previously there were some Add-Ons that were removing the Terror Radius instantly.
