    DBD Update 2.59 Patch Notes | Dead by Daylight 6.2

    [Dead by Daylight] DBD update 2.59 (v6.2.0) is rolling out on PS4, PS5 (6.200), PC, and Xbox One players. According to the official DBD patch notes, the latest update added a new Killer(The Mastermind) and new Survivors (Ada Wong and Rebecca Chambers). Apart from this, DBD patch 2.59 also includes various bug fixes and gameplay changes.

    Note: Some platforms will receive version 6.1.2 while others will jump straight to 6.2.0. These versions are largely the same with the latter including an additional fix for the Bloodweb. This will not affect crossplay.

    Previously, a big update 2.50 added a new killer(The Dredge), a new survivor(Haddie Kaur), new perks, and much more.

    Unfortunately, since the last patch, players are facing various issues with the game. Today’s Dead by Daylight version 2.59 will address a few of these issues.

    What is new in DBD 2.59 Patch Notes (6.2.0)? – August 30, 2022

    Features

    • New Killer – The Mastermind
      • New Perk: Superior Anatomy
        • When a survivor performs a fast vault within 8 meters of you, this perk activates. The next time you vault a window, your vaulting speed is increased by 30%/35%/40%. This perk deactivates after vaulting a window. This perk has a 30 seconds cool-down.
      • New Perk: Awakened Awareness
        • When carrying a survivor, you can see the aura of other survivors within 16/18/20 meters of your position.
      • New Perk: Terminus
        • When exit gates are powered, this perk activates. While the perk is active, injured, downed and hooked survivors are inflicted with the broken status effect until exit gates are open. When exit gates are open, survivors will stay broken for an additional 20/25/30 seconds.
    • New Survivor – Ada Wong
      • New Perk: Wiretap
        • After repairing Generators for a total of 33%, this perk activates. After repairing a Generator for at least 3 seconds, press the Ability button to install a spy trap, which stays active for 60/70/80 seconds. The aura of the trapped generator is revealed in yellow to all Survivors. When the Killer comes within 14 meters of the trapped generator, their aura is revealed to all Survivors. Damaging the generator destroys the Wiretap.
      • New Perk: Reactive Healing
        • When another survivor loses a health state in a 32 meters radius around you while you are injured, instantly increase your healing progression by 40%/45%/50% of the missing healing progression.
      • New Perk: Low Profile
        • When you become the last Survivor standing, this perk activates. Hide your scratch marks, pools of blood, and grunts of pain for 70/80/90 seconds.
    • New Survivor – Rebecca Chambers
      • New Perk: Better Than New
        • Upon completing a healing action on another survivor, the targeted survivor gets a 12%/14%/16% speed boost to healing, opening chests, and cleansing and blessing Totems. Survivors keep the bonus until they lose a health state.
      • New Perk: Reassurance
        • When within a 6 meter radius around a hooked survivor, use the Active Ability Button 2 to pause their struggle progression for 20/25/30 seconds. If they are on the struggle phase, it also pauses the Struggle Skill Checks. Reassurance can only be triggered once per survivor per hook instance.
      • New Perk: Hyperfocus
        • After hitting a great Skill Check while repairing or healing, this perk gains 1 token, up to 6 tokens. Each token increases the chance of Skill Check trigger by 4%, the Skill Check cursor speed by 4% and the bonus progression for great Skill Checks by 10%/20%/30% of its base value. The perk loses all tokens in case of normal Skill Check success, Skill Check fail, or if you stop performing the action by any means.
    • New Features: Streamer Options (PC Only)
      • These privacy options are available under the Privacy section of the General tab in the Options menu, and are intended to help reduce targeting and harassment of players who stream the game.

      • Hidden Matchmaking Delay
        • Adds a short, random delay when entering the matchmaking queue to prevent targeted in-game harassment.
    • Improved Feature: HUD Connection Indicators
      • The in-game connection indicator has been improved to show more detailed information during connection issues stemming from ping and packet loss
      • Ping is represented by a vertical bar icon
        • Yellow = Ping over 100ms
        • Red = Ping over 200ms
      • Packet Loss is represented by a double-diamond icon

    Perks

    • Mettle of Man
      • Reverted to its previous behavior prior to 6.1.2
        • After you earn 3 Protection Hit scoring events, Mettle of Man activates. Once activated, the next occasion that would put you into the dying state from the injured state is ignored. The next time you heal back to full health, your aura will be revealed to the Killer when you are further than 12/14/16 meters from the Killer. Mettle of Man will deactivate the next time you are put into the dying state. Increases your chances to be the Killer’s Obsession.
      • Removed the Endurance icon from the status effect display, since the perk does not use Endurance
    • Blast Mine
      • Changed the behaviour when a placed mine times out
        • If the mine times out without being triggered, the entire perk deactivates and the Survivor will need to repair a generator to re-earn the mine (previously, a timed out mine would be allow the Survivor to immediately place another one)
