Luck is a Game Mechanic featured in Dead by Daylight IconHelp DBDlogo.png.


Overview

Luck affects a Survivor's chances of unhooking themselves from a Hook IconHelpLoading hook.png and freeing themselves from a Bear Trap IconPowers trap.png.
It does not affect the Rarity of an Item found in a Chest IconHelp chests.png.

Some Offerings IconHelp offerings.png can increase the Luck of Survivors, either for oneself or for all of them. The same applies for Up the Ante IconPerks upTheAnte.png.

Increased Luck will be shown on the Status HUD, when attempting interactions that are affected by it:

Icon Name Description
IconStatusEffects luck.png Chance Indicates whether the player has a better or worse chance at succeeding the performed action.
  • Only valid for actions that can fail, which only applies to escaping from Bear Traps or self-unhooking.
