While initially a killer main, I’ve spent far too much time lately running Survivor matches while building up my arsenal of useful perks. Not only does playing as a Survivor in Dead by Daylight help me think of ways I can improve my chase game while I’m stepping into the shoes of my main Killer, but it’s also just a nice change of pace every once in a while. After seeing these perks, however, I may need to switch up my build a little bit and see what all the fuss is about since some of these seem like great additions to any build.
Most Popular Survivor Perks in Dead by Daylight
Behaviour took it upon themselves to measure out a distance of time between April 27 and August 5, 2023, and players on the Survivor end of the Trail have been running a varied selection of Perks to make sure that they can make it out alive. While some of the Perks on this list may not be surprising in the slightest, there are a few choices that you may need to add to your arsenal shortly;
- Windows of Opportunity
- Self Care
- Sprint Burst
- Prove Thyself
- Dead Hard
- Spine Chill
As you can see, Survivors have a great list of perks to choose from, and it seems that they’ve got some excellent builds cooking in the background. No matter if you’re hoping to gain some distance away from the Killer using Lithe, or just need some extra TLC with Self Care, there are some excellent perks available for you to use.
However, since this didn’t have much time to include End Transmission, we can only expect that the Gabriel perk Made For This is going to see itself on this list the next time one is available. With recent changes brought during the 7.1.0 patch, this perk has burst into the Meta, and it seems that most high-level players are running it in their builds now.
Now that you know what perks you should be running, make sure that your character looks as good as they control.
