This article is an overview of all Toolboxes featured in Dead by Daylight. For other uses, see Toolbox (disambiguation).

Toolboxes are a type of Item IconHelp items.png the Survivors IconHelpLoading survivor.png can use in Dead by Daylight IconHelp DBDlogo.png.


Overview[edit | edit source]

Toolboxes have two main uses: repairing Generators IconHelpLoading generators.png faster and sabotaging Hooks IconHelpLoading hook.pngwithout the need of the Perk Saboteur IconPerks saboteur.png.

Not all Toolboxes are suited for both aforementioned uses, some are specialised for just one of them and perform badly when used for the other.

Add-ons can be equipped to enhance their speed and durability.
