Dead by Daylight (DBD): Best Killer Builds (Any Killer) 2022

Even though it has been years since Dead by Daylight was released in 2016, it continues to maintain a steady player count, popularity, and relevance, much thanks to its regular updates and content drops. This new year, the meta of the game has shifted, especially when playing as a survivor. With the amount of content dropped last year, there are plenty of fresh new ways to play as a survivor.

To get you all caught up with the ever-changing meta of Dead by Daylight, or if you’re a new player, up to speed about the intricacies of the different builds, here’s some of the most efficient builds for any killer.

Survivor Progress Hindering Build

As the name suggests, this build focuses on hindering the Generators’ progress more than anything else. If you’re more of a passive player, this one might be perfect for you.

  • Hex Ruin (Hag)
  • Pop Goes The Weasel (Clown)
  • Corrupt Intervention
  • Tinkerer (Hilibily)

This perk set will allow the killer to stop the generators on demand which is really disrupting for the survivors. Thanks to the Corrupt Intervention, the three generators farthest from you are blocked by The Entity for 80 to 120 seconds.

Awareness Build

If you’re one of those killers who have a hard time finding any survivors to hunt, this build will help you be more aware of where the survivors are.

  • A Nurse’s Calling (Nurse)
  • Bitter Murmur
  • Sloppy Butcher
  • Spies from the Shadows

Note that the Sloppy Butcher Perk included here is highly versatile when it comes to hunting. It inflicts the Mangled status, decreasing the rate at which survivors can heal themselves and increasing the rate at which they bleed out. So this build can be used to counteract any health perks that the survivors must be using.

The Brute Build

In the current meta, survivors use the pallets to slow down the killer. Since there is no path to simply avoid them, it is really tiring having to break them constantly. If you want to have an easier time breaking pallets, look no further, this build is for you.

  • Pop Goes The Weasel (The Clown)
  • Oppression (The Twins)
  • Brutal Strength (The Trapper)
  • Spirit Fury (The Spirit)

The Brutal Strength Build enables the Killers to shred through the defenses of their prey – including pallets, breakable walls, and even generators.

The Balanced Build

This build is fun to play with no matter what your playstyle is. It’s a perfect mix of the most useful perks and provides a good balance of all abilities.

So if you’re unsure which one to pick, this is our best recommendation. You can’t go wrong with this build.

  • Hex Ruin (Hag)
  • Pop Goes The Weasel (Clown)
  • Corrupt Intervention
  • Barbecue & Chilli (Cannibal)

As previously mentioned, the Corrupt Intervention, Pop Goes the Weasel, and Hex Ruin is great perks to help you disrupt generators, Barbeque and Chilli add to it by revealing survivor Auras once you hook one of them. Making this build the best of both worlds.

So those were some of our recommendations for the best Killer Builds to fit the meta in 2022. Obviously, these are just suggestions and you can tune some perks to better fit your playstyle. Don’t shy away from letting us know your favorite builds in the game. Happy Hunting!
