June 15 Balance Changes

Thanks to the official patch notes for the new Dead By Daylight update, we know exactly what balance changes were made in the June 15 update.

To begin with, it looks like the duration of the Lucky Break perk in DBD was increased to 40/50/60 seconds from the original 35/40/45 seconds.

As well as this, the Franklin’s Demise perk has had a balance change too. Now, this perk will no longer destroy items. Instead, it will drain charge from items over time and leave them empty.

These were the two major changes made to perks in Dead By Daylight, but there were some other balance changes that you can check out below. These were taken directly from the official patch notes:

  • Demogorgon add-on “Lifeguard Whistle” now reduces detection range from the portal by 1 meter.
  • Demogorgon add-on “Barb’s Glasses” bonus reduced to 15% (from 20%).
  • Demogorgon add-on “Black Heart” bonus reduced to 15% (from 20%).
  • Demogorgon add-on “Vermillion Webcap” bonus undetectable duration increased to 3 seconds (from 1 second).
  • Demogorgon add-on “Rat Tail” bonus increased to 35% (from 25%).
  • The perk “Franklin’s Demise” will no longer destroy items. Instead, it will drain charge from items over time and leave them empty.
  • Increased the duration of the perk “Lucky Break” to 40/50/60 seconds (up from 35/40/45).
  • Readjusted maximum turn rate per frame during Blight’s rush at large look angles.
