Which killer has the best perks?

Answered by Jason Smith

When it comes to Dead By Daylight, the choice of killer perks can greatly impact your gameplay and increase your chances of success. While each killer has their own unique perks, some stand out as being particularly effective in various situations. Here, I have compiled a list of the top 15 killer perks, ranked based on their overall usefulness and versatility.

1. Corrupt Intervention: This perk is highly valuable as it blocks three random generators for a certain duration at the beginning of the match, forcing survivors closer together and limiting their options.

2. Deadlock: Deadlock is a powerful perk that activates when the last generator is repaired, blocking both exit gates for a short time. This can buy you precious moments to down any remaining survivors and secure kills.

3. No Way Out: This perk activates when the exit gates are powered, causing the aura of any survivor outside of the exit gate to be revealed to you for a limited time. It can be a game-changer in the endgame, allowing you to quickly locate and eliminate survivors.

4. Scourge Hook: Pain Resonance: This perk highlights the auras of survivors who have recently unhooked a survivor from a hook. It provides valuable information and allows you to quickly find and punish altruistic survivors.

5. Overcharge: Overcharge is a great perk that causes the generator’s progression to regress if a survivor fails a skill check while repairing it. This can disrupt survivor progress and buy you time to locate and down them.

6. Pop Goes The Weasel: This perk allows you to regress the progression of a generator by 25% after hooking a survivor. It can be a useful tool to slow down survivors’ generator progress and create pressure on the survivors.

7. Discordance: Discordance reveals the auras of multiple survivors when they work on the same generator. This perk can help you quickly identify generator locations with multiple survivors and apply pressure to them.

8. Lethal Pursuer: This perk increases your movement speed when a survivor is healing or being unhooked within a certain range. It allows you to quickly close the distance and catch survivors off guard.

9. Hex: Ruin: This hex perk slows down generator progress when survivors don’t hit great skill checks. It can be a powerful perk to slow down the game and give you more time to locate and eliminate survivors.

10. Hex: Undying: This hex perk protects other active hex perks and can transfer them to a dull totem when the hex totem is cleansed. It provides additional protection for your other hex perks and allows you to maintain pressure on survivors.

11. Monitor & Abuse: This perk increases your terror radius while in a chase but decreases it when not in a chase. It can be useful for sneaking up on survivors and catching them off guard.

12. Blood Echo: Blood Echo causes survivors who cleanse a dull totem to become exposed for a short time. This can be a great perk to apply pressure and punish survivors for cleansing totems.

13. Save The Best For Last: This perk reduces your successful attack cooldown for each successful attack that is not against your obsession. It allows you to quickly down survivors and apply pressure to the survivors.

14. Infectious Fright: Infectious Fright reveals the auras of survivors who are within your terror radius when you down another survivor. It can be a great perk to quickly locate and eliminate survivors after downing one.

15. Make Your Choice: Make Your Choice activates when a survivor rescues another survivor from the hook while you are a certain distance away. It allows you to quickly locate and down the rescuer, applying pressure to survivors.

These killer perks offer a range of benefits, from information gathering and tracking to slowing down survivor progress and increasing your lethality. However, it’s important to note that the best killer perks can vary depending on your playstyle and the specific killer you are using. Experiment with different perks and find the ones that work best for you. Happy hunting!
