Dead By Daylight Blight perks
The Blight has three unique perks that can be unlocked for other Killers via the Bloodweb.
The first Survivor who interacts with a damaged generator will scream and their location will be revealed for four seconds via a red aura. They'll also suffer the Exposed status effect for 60 seconds.
The auras of all Survivors within 2/3/4 meters of a Dull Totem will be revealed to the Blight.
Hex: Blood Favour
Whenever a Survivor loses a health state and enters the injured or dying state, this perk will call upon the Entity to block all pallets within 24/28/32 meters of that Survivor's location from being pulled down for the next 15 seconds.
What are the best builds and perks for the Blight?
We would go with the following perks for the best possible build for the Blight:
Discordance (Legion perk)
Any generator that is being repaired by two or more Survivors will be revealed with a yellow aura and emit a loud noise notification.
I'm All Ears (The Ghostface perk)
Any Survivor performing a rushed action within 48 meters of the Blight's location will have their aura revealed for six seconds.
Whispers (General Killer perk)
The Entity will be performing sporadic whispers whenever a Survivor is within 48/40/32 meters of the Blight's location
Hex: Blood Favour (Blight perk)
Whenever a Survivor enters the injured or dying state, this perk will call upon the Entity to block all pallets within 24/28/32 meters of a Survivor's location from being pulled down for the next 15 seconds.
Dead By Daylight Blight power
The Blight's power is called Blighted Corruption. This power enhances the Blight's strength and allows him to perform a rush
Rush is an ability that propels him forward to hit objects and obstacles such as walls, pallets, hooks, crates, etc.
Once the Blight hits an object for the first time, his rush ability transforms into a Lethal Rush where he can use his weapon to hit Survivors while rushing. The rush ability will go into a cooldown if the Blight does not hit an object.
The Blight starts with five tokens at the start of a trial. Blight will lose tokens whenever he uses rush or lethal rush. Nevertheless, the tokens will regenerate over time, so using them is not entirely a bad thing.
Dead by Daylight Blight best add-ons
Each Killer may come with many different add-ons that improve the Killer’s base kit or change it entirely for more fun and engaging gameplay. The Blight is no exception to this, so we’ve picked out the best add-ons for you to choose from.
A staple to Blight players, this add-on will show the location of Slam before casting it.
Like Chipped Monocle, Vigo's Journal is a must for Blight players. This add-on grants the undetectable status effect to the Blight when rushing.
This add-on lets the Blight see the aura of Survivors when within eight meters of the collision of each slam.
Iridiscent Blight Tag
Upon using the last rush token, the Blight's last lethal rush will put Survivors in a dying state.
Dead By Daylight Blight tips and tricks
- You don't have to constantly use your rush ability. It's best to just use your basic attack in tight loops where Survivors can hug corners or move around quickly because you could end up wasting your time and losing ground in the chase chase.
- The Blight is highly mobile. Use your ability to get to places quickly because sometimes it can make all the difference.
- Use Lethal Rush at breakable walls and pallets. It's much faster than going through a Fatigued state and then breaking the pallet manually. It gives you more time to catch up to the Survivor too, which is exactly what you want when in a highly intense chase.
- If you're using perks that require you to hit Survivors with a basic attack, then you should know that Lethal Rush doesn't count as one.
That's all you need to know about the best Blight builds in Dead by Daylight. Be sure to check back regularly to see how your build could be improved.
