Albert Wesker’s Virulent Bound received some changes and fixes in the latest update for Dead by Daylight.

Albert Wesker, also known as “The Mastermind” in Dead by Daylight, has a power called Virulent Bound. Wesker pulls out his tentacles when activating this and then he leaps forward, grabbing an unlucky survivor in range and line of sight.

That said, Patch 6.2.1 implements bug fixes and changes to this particular power. One, the Survivor Detection for triggering grabs with Virulent Bound is increased. In addition, the issue where “The Mastermind” can grab survivors through thin walls when using Virulent Bound has been fixed.

Players who have used Wesker before this update may be frustrated with a particular bug. Specifically, there was an issue where “The Mastermind” cannot grab survivors using Virulent Bound when they’re actively interacting with a chest. This is now resolved.

Here are the other changes implemented in Patch 6.2.1 for Dead by Daylight:
