- This article is an overview of all Toolboxes featured in Dead by Daylight. For other uses, see Toolbox (disambiguation).
Overview[edit | edit source]
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.
The Standard Toolbox[edit | edit source]
This Item was the only available Toolbox until [[Patch 1.1.2
|Toolbox (Item)||A metal box containing a set of basic tools. Even without training, can be used to repair or break various mechanical components.
"It is unclear as to where these tools come from. Were they brought in by one of us or did they belong to one of the monsters?"
Other Types of Toolboxes[edit | edit source]
Patch 1.1.2 introduced 5 new Toolboxes:
|Worn-Out Tools||A metal box containing out of condition tools that could break at any moment. Even without training, can be used to repair or break various mechanical components.
"You call these tools? ... Really?"
|Mechanic's Toolbox||A metal box with specialised mechanics tools. Even without training, can be used to repair or break various mechanical components.
|Commodious Toolbox||A large metal box containing basic tool and extra mechanical parts. Even without training, can be used to repair or break various mechanical components.
|Engineer's Toolbox||A metal box with highly specialised tools meant for engineering. Most of the tools can be used by neophytes to make fast repairs or break various mechanical components.
"I've created tools beyond compare and stood paralysed as they were stolen from me. These are but a poor replica, spat out by the fog." - Vigo's Journal
|Alex's Toolbox||A metal box containing mainly saws and vice grips of varying sizes but also other tools. Even though the content of this toolbox is clearly aimed at destructive deeds, it can be used to repair various mechanical components as well.
"Most of the tools are identified as 'owned by Alex'."
Repair Speed Percentages[edit | edit source]
|Modifier||Modifier in %||Modifier in charges/second||Time to fully repair a Generator|
|Default||+0 %||1.0 c/s||80 seconds|
|Slightly||+10 %||1.1 c/s||72.72 seconds|
|Moderately||+15 %||1.15 c/s||69.56 seconds|
|Considerably||+20 %||1.2 c/s||66.67 seconds|
|Tremendously||+25 %||1.25 c/s||64 seconds|
Toolbox Add-ons[edit | edit source]
The following list features all currently available Add-ons for the Toolboxes:
|Spring Clamp||Useful tool to clamp hoses or hold wires in place and prevent damage or injury.
|Scraps||Springs, screws and gears. Mostly unusable junk.
|Clean Rag||A mundane rag. Suspiciously clean.
|Wire Spool||A portable but heavy spool of copper wire.
|Socket Swivels||Swivels provide bend and flexibility for bolts that are out of reach, deep within mechanical devices.
|Protective Gloves||Thick gloves, which reduce menial dexterity but protect hands from injury.
|Instructions||Someone quickly painted what seems to be repair instructions on this piece of bark.
|Grip Wrench||An adjustable wrench with a tough grip. Essential in any Toolbox.
|Cutting Wire||A rudimentary cutting tool made from a jagged metal wire and two wooden handles.
|Hacksaw||A small hand saw mounted with a metal cutting blade.
|Brand New Part||This intricate mechanical part feels oddly out of place. It is clean and shiny as if straight out of the factory.
Change Log[edit | edit source]
- Skill Check chance for Generator Repair with a Toolbox increased from 8% to 10.5%.
- Skill Check chance for Generator Repair without a Toolbox remains at 8%.
- Skill Check chance for Hook Sabotage with a Toolbox remains at 15%.
- Skill Check chance for Hook Sabotage without a Toolbox (Saboteur) decreased from 15% to 10.5%.
Trivia[edit | edit source]
- The Mechanic's Toolbox is aimed at repairing Generators and should not be used with the intention to sabotage if one doesn't want to waste it.
- The Engineer's Toolbox is solely aimed at repairing Generators and cannot be used to sabotage by itself.
- Alex's Toolbox is aimed at sabotaging Hooks and the likes and should not be used with the intention to repair Generators if one doesn't want to waste it.
- Alex's Toolbox is named after one of the beta testers who would always sabotage the hook. It is an inside joke, although the developers have not discounted the possibility of an Alex in fiction the tools could belong to.
