In maybe an unsurprising flip of occasions, the highest three killer Perks haven’t modified from final 12 months, and are BBQ & Chili on the high, adopted by Hex: Wreck and Hex: NOED. It will possible change within the subsequent 12 months, although, as soon as an overhaul to the Perk system takes place.

Barbeque & Chili — teachable Cannibal Perk

The most well-liked Perk over the past 5 years of DBD is Barbeque & Chili, a teachable Perk belonging to The Cannibal. This perk can solely be unlocked for different killers if The Cannibal is levelled as much as Stage 35, or whether it is bought with Iridescent Shards from the Shrine of Secrets and techniques.

Barbeque & Chili is an Aura-reading Perk, and permits killers to see the place gamers are on the map, so it’s comprehensible why it is among the extra well-liked Perks in killer builds. With Barbeque & Chili outfitted, each time you hook a Survivor, all different Survivors’ areas are revealed to you, so long as they’re greater than 40 meters from the hook. This implies not solely have you learnt the place to move on your subsequent sufferer, but additionally what number of Survivors are close to sufficient to the hook to come back to the rescue.

When the Survivor returns, they are going to have longer to finish the generator repairs.

A Hex Perk, Wreck solely works so long as there’s a Hex Totem standing. Firstly of a match, a random totem will develop into hexed, and can glow. Survivors that come throughout this Totem will have the ability to cleanse it and completely take away Wreck’s results for the remainder of the match.

Hex: No One Escapes Loss of life (NOED) — Normal Perk

NOED doesn’t activate till the Exit Gates are powered, which means it might probably utterly change the end result of the sport. When the Exit Gates are powered, if there’s no less than one uninteresting totem remaining on the map, NOED will activate and remaining Survivors will develop into Uncovered, which means they are often downed in only one hit. Your motion pace as killer may also be elevated barely.

Because of the uninteresting totem requirement, Survivors can do their greatest to keep away from NOED from being activated, by cleaning or blessing each Boring Totem on the map. Or, and it’s powerful, however as soon as NOED is activated, Survivors can nonetheless cleanse the glowing, Hex Totem to take away its results.

It stands to purpose, then, that the perfect killer builds will embody Huntress, Trapper or Wraith with no less than one or two of the above Perks. We had been slightly shocked that NOED was really third and never first, because it’s a game-changing killer perk.
