The developers from Behaviour Interactive have deployed the latest update for Dead by Daylight. Patch 5.6.1 re-enables the “Wake Up” and “Object of Obsession” perks after fixing some critical bugs.

The Wake Up perk is a teachable perk for Survivors that activate once all Generators are powered up. This particular perk does a few things. For one, the Auras of Exit Gate switches are revealed to you within 128 meters, so you can easily spot them when you’re in range. Additionally, you open Exit Gates 25% faster at max level.

That said, there was a bug in the previous update where Killers suffer a game crash when the Wake Up perk is equipped by Survivors. Furthermore, the Killers would get DC penalties as if they deliberately disconnected from the session.

On the other hand, the Object of Obsession is another teachable Survivor perk where you form a supernatural bond to a Killer. Once this perk is activated, the Killer’s aura is revealed to you and your action speeds are increased as well. However, the game could crash when unhooking a Survivor using the perks Object of Obsession, Aftercare , and Empathic Connection .

A lot of people have been inconvenienced and wrongfully penalized because of that. Fortunately, the issue has been addressed in Patch 5.6.1.


  • Fixed an issue that caused survivors to be stuck between a hook and a locker in the Silent Hill map
  • Fixed an issue that caused the killer not being able to pick up the survivor on the basement stairs
  • Fixed an issue that sometimes caused daily rituals to be generated for characters who are disabled
  • Fixed an issue that caused the Enduring perk to reduce the stun duration when a survivor is carried
  • Fixed an issue that caused the effect of the Boil Over perk to remain after a survivor disconnects while carried by the killer
  • Fixed an issue that may prevent survivors from wiggling free after being dropped by the killer and picked back up
  • Fixed an issue that may cause the wiggle progress to start at 25%
  • Fixed an issue that caused the Operation Theatre room to be less visible with the Onryo's screen effect
  • Fixed an issue that caused The Onryo's Ring Drawing add-on not to spread Condemned stacks when healing a condemned survivor using an Anti-Hemorrhagic Syringe
  • Fixed an issue that caused fewer televisions to spawn in Custom Games with less than 3 survivors

Dead by Daylight Patch 5.6.1 is available on PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, Nintendo Switch, and PC.
