Dead by Daylight has finally gotten a few fixes to the bugs that have been inconveniencing both survivors and killers for the past few months. From map updates to killer fixes, this article covers all of the fixes that are coming with patch 6.5.0.

Behaviour has announced a bunch of new changes coming to Dead by Daylight through the developer updates that were released just a day before the patch notes. There are a lot of changes and tweaks but these are the most memorable ones.

Map Updates

Eyrie of Crows has received a balance pass to make the map more fun to play for both Survivor and Killer. The Map's length has been shortened and generators are more evenly distributed. 

The main building has been moved toward the Map's edge and the strength of certain main building loops has been decreased. Additionally, new tiles have been added.

The Queuing Experience  

Players are now able to browse the Store, The Archives and Daily Rituals while queueing for a match and if they are mid-purchase when the lobby is ready, the game will wait for the conclusion of the transaction but the player can still get kicked if the delay is too long.

While queued, Killers can now browse their other Killers and change their loadouts and customizations. This will not affect their currently queued character, who remains shown beside the "Looking for Match" message.

Quality Of Life

The Survivor HUD now features an indicator that appears whenever they or their teammates engage in activities that include repairing a generator, being chased by the Killer, healing, recovering from the dying state, cleansing or blessing a Totem, opening an exit gate, or interacting with a Killer’s power.

Behaviour has decided that from now on, Killers who get 4 kills will get the Merciless Killer rating, instead of the previous requirement of a double pip.
