A new update is now available on Dead by Daylight’s Public Test Build (PTB). Patch 6.4.0 not only introduces a new killer and survivor but also brings new features and changes that you need to know about.

First, there are pretty significant Flashlight changes in Patch 6.4.0. The Flashlight is an invaluable tool for survivors in Dead by Daylight because it temporarily blinds killers, allowing them to break free and run to safety. In this update, killers are now immune to blindness while grabbing a survivor out of a locker.

There is some hope for survivors though. The survivor who is picked up by the killer will be rescued successfully if the flashlight blind is completed during the last 0.25 seconds of the pickup animation. In other words, timing is important if you want to survive the killer’s grasp.

Another major thing in Patch 6.4.0 worth mentioning is the addition of bots in custom matches. If you are a host of a custom match, you can now add survivor bots to the game. This is a pretty good feature if you want to try out all of the killers available in Dead by Daylight. It’s a great way to test out “The Knight” and how he fares against survivors.
