In the Dead by Daylight Update 8.0.1, several bug fixes and improvements have been added to enhance gameplay. From adjustments to The Good Guy's power to fixes for character animations and map issues, this patch aims to provide a smoother and more enjoyable experience for everyone. Read the full patch notes below.

Dead by Daylight Update 8.0.1 Patch Notes:


The Good Guy - Addons

Power Drill

  • Hidey-Ho Mode cooldown reduced by 10% after hitting a Survivor with Slice & Dice. (was 15%)

Automatic Screwdriver

  • Missing a Slice & Dice reduces Hidey-Ho Cooldown by 8%. (was 10%)

Dev note: Currently, The Good Guy's Power incorrectly starts to recharge as soon as the Slice & Dice attack is started rather than after it finishes, making his Power recharge much faster than intended. This will be corrected in the near future. In the meantime, we have toned down these Add-Ons to make sure they don't get out of hand. They will return to their normal strength once this is resolved.
