Dead by Daylight: Unbroken Emblem Explained

We all love being rewarded, but what does this Emblem stand for?

No matter if you love playing as your favorite horror villain, or want to jump into the shoes of someone trying to escape with their life intact, Dead by Daylight is an excellent multiplayer experience. At the end of each match, you’re graded on your performance via a select group of Emblems, with none more sought after than the Unbroken Emblem. But, what exactly is this Emblem, and why is it so coveted when playing as a Survivor? Let’s dive into the fog and find out what it is, and how you can obtain one for yourself in Dead by Daylight.

What Is The Unbroken Emblem In Dead By Daylight?

When you’re playing a round as a Survivor, you’re graded on a scale from Bronze to Iridescent on your overall performance, with Iridescent being the top grade you can achieve. From left to right in the photo above, you are graded on the following:

  • Benevolent – How much you were willing to help your fellow survivors when they are hooked, in need of healing, etc.
  • Evader – How well you did in Chases against Killers, employing good tactics to keep yourself alive during the most hectic part of the game.
  • Lightbringer – You are graded on how much you helped out during the match with tasks such as repairing Generators, opening exit doors, etc.
  • Unbroken – You are graded on how well you did at avoiding being put into a dying state. The moment you get hit or are downed, this will drop to Gold or lower.

To achieve an Iridescent Unbroken is a rather impressive feat, and can be placed high on the pedestal of your gaming achievements. You’ll need to avoid the killer for the whole game, all while working on other objectives and taking part in frantic Chases to give your teammates time to complete generators. Or, you can hide in a locker for the whole game and emerge to escape at the end, but that’s bad manners.

As you progress further into your Dead by Daylight career, you’ll need to keep your eyes peeled on these ranking screens. The better your Emblems are, the better the players you’ll be paired up with and against, as your MMR will continue to rise. However, if players begin reporting you for being selfish if you’re aiming for only the Unbroken category, you may notice that you’re placed into games with other selfish players.

The Entity is always hungry, and it doesn’t matter if you’re hiding away in lockers or zooming across the map as Nicolas Cage, you’ll always need to be prepared for whatever could happen next. Keep pushing yourself to become bolder and more adventurous, and Dead by Daylight will open its arms in a warm, and slightly sticky, embrace.
