The killers in Dead by Daylight must constantly monitor the generators, even while pursuing survivors.
The killers should respect the glyphs and refrain from attacking survivors who communicate with them, as it demonstrates a sense of fair sportsmanship.
Monitoring the states of the survivors on the hooks is crucial for making strategic decisions and playing in a courteous manner.
Although the killers in Dead by Daylight strive to eliminate the survivors, there are nevertheless certain general guidelines worth adhering to. As the formidable role of the hunter in Dead by Daylight, the killers wield significant influence over the course of the game. A particularly strong or weak performance by a killer can result in a very brief match where one side dominates the other. However, once a killer gains momentum, especially with an early kill success, it can be challenging to halt their progress. There exist some generally useful strategies for the killer, as well as etiquette rules that should be observed.
Whether a player utilizes one of the most efficient killers in Dead by Daylight or one on a lower tier, they possess a remarkable amount of power. While survivors only have the ability to evade or slow down the killer, the killer can directly remove survivors from the trial. Each killer has their own unique abilities and associated strategies, unlike the survivors whose core mechanics are identical aside from considering perks. Consequently, each killer generally requires a distinct approach. However, there are some tips that prove useful for any killer in the game, and players should be wise in swiftly learning them.
Killers Should Respect Glyphs In Dead By Daylight
When it comes to the challenges of the Book, one of the most notorious ones in Dead by Daylight is the Glyph challenges. Not only do Glyphs typically appear in a random location, making them difficult to find, but players also need to stand in one place to communicate with them. Since Glyphs can be so frustrating, it is highly frowned upon for a killer to attack a survivor who is interacting with a Glyph. After all, this would only prolong an already tedious Book challenge. Many survivors are even willing to be hit immediately after completing their interaction with a Glyph, due to the displayed courtesy. Allowing survivors to finish their Glyphs is simply a matter of fair sportsmanship.
Always Be Aware Of Dead By Daylight's Generators
There is a good reason why killers in Dead by Daylight can see the aura of generators at all times. Once the survivors have completed five generators, they are just one step away from escaping. Therefore, monitoring the generators is of utmost priority for the killer. In most situations, they should avoid areas of the map where no generators are present unless they are engaged in a chase they are almost certain to win, as this leaves the generators unprotected. Perks like Discordance and Surveillance can be particularly useful in this regard, as they inform the killer when a generator is being worked on, allowing them to move towards it and sabotage it.
A Survivor's Hook State is Vital Knowledge For a Dead By Daylight Killer
Monitoring the states of the survivors on the hooks is always important in Dead by Daylight, regardless of the killer's composition. After all, their objective is to eliminate the survivors, and keeping track of the hook states can assist the killer in making decisive choices. For instance, if two survivors are caught working on a generator, with one being hooked once and the other twice, the killer should target the latter to secure a kill. On the other hand, killing a survivor at the beginning of the game is considered unsporting, especially when Bloody Party Streamers or an Anniversary Cake are active. Not only does this deprive the player of enjoyment, but it also diminishes the potential bloodpoint boon.
The killers are a formidable role, but they do not have absolute control over everything. Even the deadliest killer in Dead by Daylight will occasionally witness survivors escaping. However, killers are inherently a serious threat, and players who possess a deep understanding of their chosen killer and mastery of common tactics can be formidable opponents. Simultaneously, adhering to some universally recognized rules of courtesy can keep the game entertaining for everyone. By keeping a few guidelines in mind, every killer in Dead by Daylight can deliver a satisfying fight.
