Dead by Daylight Update 6.5.0
Dead by Daylight Update 6.5.0 Steam

Dead by Daylight’s latest update is here and so are the changes it brings, including a good amount of changes for the Skull Merchant. Several dozen bugs were squashed as well. The said killer now receives a flat Haste status effect every time a survivor is detected on their radar. However, their bonus will vanish if no survivors are detected and it now depends on how many survivors are identified. The highlights of Patch 6.6.2 are mentioned below.

Killer: The Skull Merchant
Base power changes:
  • The Skull Merchant gains a flat Haste Status Effect for each Survivor detected on the radar. This bonus is lost when no Survivor is detected on the Radar.
    • One Survivor : +3%
    • Two Survivors: +5%
    • Three Survivors: +6%
    • Four Survivors: +7%
  • Survivors with a Claw Trap cause Drones to be Unhackable while they are nearby
  • Drones only return to the Killer after their respective Claw Trap battery is empty
  • Entering an Active Zone no longer recharges Claw Trap batteries
  • Failing the Claw Trap hack no longer recharges its battery
  • Claw Trapped Survivors who fast vault pallets break the pallet and their Claw Trap at the same time
  • Claw traps are automatically removed when their battery is empty
Addon changes:
  • Ultrasonic Trap Speaker (NEW EFFECT): Decrease the time it takes for Undetectable to take effect by 50%
  • Increase the “Expired Batteries” addon rarity to Ultra Rare (was Very Rare)
  • Decrease the “Prototype Rotor” addon rarity to Very Rare (was Ultra Rare)
  • Increase Adaptive Lighting to 50% (was 20%)
  • Decrease Expired Batteries to 40% (was 150%)
  • A previous patch note stated that the perk Leverage no longer worked on self-healing. This was not the case. Leverage has worked on self-healing and still does.
  • Updated screams caused by Perks to be heard map-wide, as they were prior to version 6.6.0.

The complete patch notes mentioning all the bug fixes can be read in great detail via Steam.
