Dead By Daylight update 1.24 with The SAW DLC

New Killer – The Pig (Amanda Young)

Dead By Daylight update 1.24
Power – Jigsaw’s Baptism

Forever devoted to her master’s cause, she punished the ungrateful and the guilty with slyness and murderous puzzles. The Pig can move stealthily, dash in ambush attacks and put deadly Reverse Bear Traps on Survivors’ heads.

Use the Secondary Power interaction to assume a crouching position. While crouching:

  • The Pig has no Terror Radius.
  • Activate the attack interaction to dash and perform an ambush attack.
Start the trial with 4 Reverse Bear Traps:
  • Reverse Bear Traps are put on Dying Survivors.
  • Reverse Bear Traps automatically sacrifice the survivor when they trigger.
  • Reverse Bear Traps trigger automatically beyond the Exit Gates.
  • Reverse Bear Traps trigger once their timers expire.
  • Reverse Bear Traps timer starts when a generator is completed.
  • Survivors can free themselves from Reverse Bear Traps by searching Jigsaw Boxes found around the map to find the correct key.


  • Hangman’s Trick – Your ingenious modifications to Hooks prevent tampering and permanent damage. Hooks destroyed by sabotage or sacrifices repair automatically after 30 seconds. Gain a notification when someone starts sabotaging the Hooks.
  • Surveillance – Unlocks potential in one’s aura reading ability. The last 1 regressing generator’s auras are indicated in white to you for 16 seconds.
  • Make Your Choice – When a Survivor rescues another from a hook at least 48 meters away from you, Make Your Choice triggers and applies the Exposed Status Effect on the rescuer for 60 seconds. Make Your Choice has a cooldown of 60 seconds.

New Survivor – Detective Tapp

Dead by daylight version 1.24


  • Tenacity – There is nothing stopping you. Your ferocious tenacity in dire situations allows you to craw 30% faster and recover at the same time.
  • Detective’s Hunch – Unlocks potential in one’s aura reading ability. When completing a Generator, the auras of Generators, Chests, and Totems within 32 meters are revealed to you for 5 seconds.
  • Stake Out – Getting close to the Killer fills you with determination. For every 15 seconds, you are standing within the Killer’s Terror Radius and not in a Chase, you gain a Token up to a maximum of 2 Tokens. When Stake Out has at least 1 Token, Good Skill Checks are considered Great Skill Checks are consume 1 Token.

New Map – Gideon’s Meat Plant

Dead By Daylight version 1.24 Patch Notes


  • Content – Removed the Winter Event gift box skin and replaced with the Mystery Box
  • Content – Removed the Winter accessories and themed skins from the lobbies and in game
  • Content – Removed the Winter themed lobby and menu music
  • Content – Removed the possibility for the “Winter Party Starter” firecracker item to spawn in chests and in the Bloodweb
  • Feature – Added a “Secondary Power” keybinding to the Killer Controls. Hag players can now rebind the Teleport button, which should now prevent accidental teleports when using the Mint Rag add-on.


BloodWeb Changes

  • Changed the half price cost of the Mystery Box back to the original values
  • Readjusted drop rates of items from level 25 to 50
  • The mystery boxes appearance rate is back at what it was prior to the Winter Event.

Design Changes

  • Blindness status effect now blocks auras of hooked and downed survivors. (This includes Hex: The Third Seal and Huntress Add-ons)
  • NURSE: After blinking, the Nurse used to have a special attack with different speed values and detection zones. This has been removed. The Nurse will now have a regular lunge after blinking.
  • NURSE: Duration of the blink now depends on the how long the player charged the blink for, rather than the distance traveled during the blink. The time required to fully charge a blink (2 seconds), the maximum distance traveled (20 meters) and the time required to cover that distance (1.5 seconds) remain unchanged.
  • NURSE: Lunge speed has been adjusted: She will now accelerate to a maximum speed of 6.9 m/s during the lunge, like other killers. Previously, her regular (non-blink) attack was slower than other killers due to her reduced movement speed.
  • NURSE: Reappearance time is now much shorter and should be occurring as she blinks, this should remove the feeling that her collision is in place before she is visible, and allow for visual feedback in order to play against The Nurse.
  • NURSE: We’ve updated how much time it takes to blink and linked this timing to how long The Nurse Blinks. Due to the Blink mechanic improvement, Nurse’s are now able to short blink instead of being forced to blink in relation to how long they have charged. Coupling the charge time for how long the nurse will take to displace herself will allows for survivors to always have a similar visual queue and timing to give them time to try and dodge The Nurse.
  • NURSE: We’ve updated how we calculate where the Nurse Blinks, this change allows the Nurse to blink upwards and downwards with more accuracy. This change has also enabled the Nurse to vary how far she Blinks, allowing her to blink closer when previously she would have committed to the distance she had charged. This will significantly improve the Nurse’s ability to Blink. The following points will address the additional balance changes that should counterbalance the improved Blink.
  • SCRATCH MARKS: We’ve adjusted how Scratch Marks are displayed, they should no longer be; showing up on a floor above a survivor and showing up on walls that are opposite of a survivor running. They will still show up under floors when a survivor is running above it.
  • Save The Best for Last’s text and functionality has been updated. The successful attack cooldown will not be lost when changing targets during a chase and will continue to be active as long as a chase is held for more than 20 seconds.

Map Changes

  • Added logic that limits the number of generic pallets that can spawn inside the Badham Preschool map to 3. Made the outside pallets procedural.
  • Changed the minimum and a maximum number of procedural pallets that can spawn. Global Change.
  • Fixed an exploit on the harvester object in the farm theme.
  • Implemented a new pallet management system that allows us to tweak the minimum and a maximum number of procedural pallets that can spawn per map.
  • Increased the minimum spawning distance between procedural pallets from 8m to 10m. Global Change.
  • Reduced the number of pallets that can spawn on the edges of the Backwater Swamp maps.

  • Fixed an issue with The Nurse’s Plaid Flannel add-on that caused the blink indicator to display the shading used for being behind an object at all times. It will now properly display with light shading when unobstructed, and dark shading when behind an object. This should make it clearer where the blink will land.
