It’s only been a few days since our last update, but what’s Dead by Daylight without an endless string of bugs to fix and tweaks to make? The Skull Merchant sees a little boost, with her gaining a Haste effect when survivors enter her drone zone.


Killer: The Skull Merchant

  • Base power changes:
  • The Skull Merchant gains a flat Haste Status Effect for each Survivor detected on the radar. This bonus is lost when no Survivor is detected on the Radar.
  • One Survivor : +3%
  • Two Survivors: +5%
  • Three Survivors: +6%
  • Four Survivors: +7%
  • Note: You do not need to be Inspecting the Radar in order to get this bonus.
  • Failing the Claw Trap hack no longer recharges its battery
  • Entering an Active Zone no longer recharges Claw Trap batteries
  • Drones only return to the Killer after their respective Claw Trap battery is empty
  • Survivors with a Claw Trap cause Drones to be Unhackable while they are nearby
