Hex Perks are special types of Perks IconHelp perks.png using the Totem Mechanic implemented with Patch 1.3.0 into Dead by Daylight IconHelp DBDlogo.png.

There are currently 7 Hex Perks available.


Overview[edit | edit source]

A Hex Perks roots its power in any of the five Dull Totems placed randomly across the Map, which will then turn into a Hex Totem.

Hex Perks are special in that they are generally very powerful Perks with the drawback of being destructible and thus can be deactivated if the associated Hex Totem is cleansed by a Survivor. Thus, Hex Perks in general are a gamble to use.


List of Hex Perks[edit | edit source]

IconPerks hexDevourHope.png Hex: Devour Hope

A Hex rooting its power on hope. The false hope of Survivors ignites your hunger.

When a Survivor is rescued from a Hook at least 24 metres away, Devour Hope receives a Token.

  • 2 Tokens: Gain a 3/4/5 % Haste IconStatusEffects haste.png Status Effect 10 seconds after hooking a Survivor, for a duration of 10 seconds.
  • 3 Tokens: Survivors suffer from the Exposed IconStatusEffects exposed.png Status Effect.
  • 5 Tokens: Grants the ability to kill Survivors by your own hand.

The Hex effects persist as long as the related Hex Totem IconHelpLoading totem.png is standing.

"If you do nothing, you have their blood on your hands. If you save them, her hunger grows."

IconPerks hexHauntedGround.png Hex: Haunted Ground

Two trapped Hex Totems will spawn in the Trial.

When one of the two trapped Hex Totems is cleansed by a Survivor IconHelpLoading survivor.png, all Survivors suffer from the Exposed IconStatusEffects exposed.png Status Effect for 40/50/60 seconds.

The remaining trapped Hex Totem IconHelpLoading totem.png immediately becomes a Dull Totem.

"Her home became profane."

IconPerks hexHuntressLullaby.png Hex: Huntress Lullaby

A Hex rooting its power in despair. Your hunt is an irresistible song of dread which muddles your prey's attention.

Survivors receive a 2/4/6 % regression penalty when missing any Skill Check IconHelp skillChecks.png.

Each time a Survivor is hooked, Huntress Lullaby grows in power:

  • 1 to 4 Tokens: Time between the Skill Check warning sound and the Skill Check becomes shorter.
  • 5 Tokens: No Skill Check warning.

The Hex effects persist as long as the related Hex Totem IconHelpLoading totem.png is standing.

"That song, it drives me crazy!"

IconPerks hexNoOneEscapesDeath.png Hex: No One Escapes Death

A Hex rooting its power on hope. You are animated by the power of your Hex Totem when the Survivors are on the verge of escaping.

Once the Exit Gates IconHelp exitGates.png are powered, if there is a Dull Totem remaining on the Map, this Hex is applied to it.

While this Hex is active, Survivors suffer from the Exposed IconStatusEffects exposed.png Status Effect and your Movement Speed is increased by 2/3/4 %.

The Hex effects persist as long as the related Hex Totem IconHelpLoading totem.png is standing.

"And the beast became faster and more powerful as if The Entity's shadowy whips were lashing at its back."

IconPerks hexRuin.png Hex: Ruin

A Hex that affects the Survivors' skills at repairing Generators IconHelpLoading generators.png.

All Survivors are affected by Ruin, which causes the following:
