Dead by Daylight: The Singularity’s Perks and Powers, Listed

Strength is irrelevant. Resistance is futile.

Dead by Daylight’s seventh anniversary is here, and with it comes the teasing of an all new chapter… set in space! And what’s a terrifying space map without an equally terrifying killer? Here’s Dead by Daylight’s The Singularity, and all of its perks and powers, listed.

All Perks and Powers in Dead by Daylight: The Singularity

We’ve gotten some pretty mechanical killers lately. But The Singularity takes it to a whole new level. So, before we even get to the perks, let’s dive into The Singularity’s unique power.

The Singularity’s Power in Dead by Daylight

The Singularity can shoot and spawn Bipods around the map. These Biopods can attach to any vertical surface they land on. The Singularity can control a Biopod remotely and look through it, and tag Survivors, afflicting them with a Temporal Slipstream. When Slipstreamed, The Singularity can teleport next to the Slipstreamed Survivor either by using the Biopods to tag them, or by shooting them. When a Slipstreamed Survivor is in proximity to another Survivor, the Slipstream can spread.

Special State: Overclock Mode

After a successful Slipstream teleport, the Singularity enters Overclock Mode. In this state, walls and pallets can be destroyed faster, vaulting speed is faster, and he cannot be stunned by pallets. Attempts to stun by pallet merely remove Overclock Mode and momentarily slow The Singularity.

Special Interaction: Electro Magnaetic Pulse

At the beginning of each Trial, several Supply Cases spawn, each containing an EMP. Survivors can use these EMPs to remove the Slipstream from themselves or others, or to briefly disable a Biopod. Once used, the EMP is destroyed.

Now that we know how The Singularity works, let’s get into its perks.

All of The Singularity’s Perks in Dead by Daylight

Like all Killers, The Singularity has three perks.

  • Genetic Limits: When a Survivor finishes the healing action, they suffer the Exhausted status effect for 24/28/32 seconds.
  • Forced Hesitation: When a Survivor is put into the dying state by any means, all other Survivors standing within 16/16/16 meters around them suffer the hindered Status effect for 10/10/10 seconds, reducing their Movement speed by 15%. This perk goes on cooldown for 60/50/40 seconds. (Yes, the current numbers really do read 16/16/16).
  • Machine Learning: After performing the damage generator action, Machine Learning activates. While this perk is active, the next generator you damage will be compromised until it is completed. The generator is highlighted in Yellow. When the compromised generator is completed, you become undetectable and gain 7% Haste for 20/25/30 seconds. Then, Machine Learning deactivates. If you break a gen while another generator is compromised, the compromised generator moves to the latest one kicked.

Currently, The Singularity is only available in the Public Test Build, so it’s subject to change. We’ll update this pace again when The Singularity releases on June 13.

The Singularity is definitely one of the more interesting characters we’ve seen in Dead by Daylight, combining a bit Pinhead and Pyramid Head. And yet, it’s still not the most interesting part of the seventh anniversary activities. That distinction belongs to the man, the myth, the legend, Nicolas Cage: From Hollywood to Hellscape: Nicolas Cage is Dead by Daylight’s Newest Survivor.
