- 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, as some are specialised for just one of them and perform poorly when executing the other.
Original Toolbox[edit | edit source]
The original and only Toolbox 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?"
New 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 quick 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'."
Add-ons[edit | edit source]
The following list features all available Add-ons for the Toolbox:
|Scraps||Springs, screws and gears. Mostly unusable junk.
|Instructions||Someone quickly painted what seems to be repair instructions on this piece of bark.
|Clean Rag||A mundane rag. Suspiciously clean.
|Wire Spool||A portable but heavy spool of copper wire.
|Spring Clamp||Useful tool to clamp hoses or hold wires in place and prevent damage or injury.
|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.
|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.
|Grip Wrench||An adjustable wrench with a tough grip. Essential in any Toolbox.
|Brand New Part||This intricate mechanical part feels oddly out of place. It is clean and shiny as if straight out of the factory.
Brand New Part is consumed on use.
Repair speeds[edit | edit source]
|Icon||Toolbox||Repair speed bonus||Individual Repair speed||Toolbox Repair progress||Toolbox Repair duration*||Remaining Generator Charges||Remaining Repair time||Total Repair time*||Seconds shaved off|
|Worn-Out Tools||+50 %||1.5 c/s||16 Charges||~10.67 seconds||64 Charges||64 seconds||~74.66 seconds||~5.33 seconds|
|Toolbox (Item)||+50 %||1.5 c/s||20 Charges||~13.33 seconds||60 Charges||60 seconds||~73.33 seconds||~6.67 seconds|
|Mechanic's Toolbox||+75 %||1.75 c/s||16 Charges||~9.14 seconds||64 Charges||64 seconds||~73.14 seconds||~6.86 seconds|
|Commodious Toolbox||+50 %||1.5 c/s||32 Charges||~21.33 seconds||48 Charges||48 seconds||~69.33 seconds||~10.67 seconds|

|Alex's Toolbox||+10 %||1.1 c/s||24 Charges||~21.82 seconds||56 Charges||56 seconds||~77.82 seconds||~2.18 seconds|
*Toolboxes consume their Charges at the same rate as their individual Repair speed, as these are the Charges that are being applied to the Generator Repair progress.
*The total Repair time assumes a complete Solo Repair, first using up the Toolbox Charges, then repairing the remainder of the Generator, without succeeding Great Skill Checks.
