Dead by Daylight Update 7.3.0 Patch Notes Explained

Below, we’ve highlighted the changes that Update 7.3.0 brings to Dead by Daylight. Most of these changes are in line with what the developer explained it wanted to do in the September 2023 Developer Update blog post. Those curious to learn even more about the changes should check out the official patch notes page for exact details from Behaviour Interactive.

Perk Updates

Two Perks have changed with this update. Those changes and associated Perks are as follows.

  • Killer Perk – Furtive Chase: Upon hooking the Obsession, players gain Undetectable and a 5% Haste Status Effect for a short time.
  • Survivor Perk – Background Player: This Perk activates for 10 seconds when the Killer picks up another Survivor. Starting running boosts the Survivor to 200% running speed for 5 seconds, then causes the Exhaustion Status Effect. The Perk won’t activate while the Survovr is Exhausted.

The Skull Merchant

A few Killers have been updated with this update. The most extensive rework is for The Skull Merchant. She now begins the Trial with six drones that conduct constant invisible scans. If they detect Survivors, their lines will activate and become visible. The Skull Merchant’s radar can now increase her movement speed for every detected and downed Survivor on the map.

Survivors now earn Lock On meter progress instead of instantly gaining it. After three detections and drone disable fails, a Survivor is fully locked on and gains a Claw Trap they’ll need to remove. The trap inflicts the Broken Status Effect and injures Survivors, allowing the Killer to down them in the next hit. Traps broadcast the Survivor’s location until the battery dies, and additional detections Hinder the player for a short time.

A slew of Add-On changes have also been made that will impact how fans play as The Skull Merchant. These are fairly widespread and are worth bearing in mind if players want to main her.

  • Adi Valente #1: Effects last until the Claw Trap is removed.
  • High-Power Floodlight: Blindness status applied when receiving a Claw Trap. Effects last until the Claw Trap is removed.
  • Geographical Readout: Increased action speed bonus while breaking pallets and breakable walls, damaging generators, and vaulting to 20% (up from 15%). The effect is now applied for 8 seconds after deploying a drone.
  • High Current Upgrade: Increases the time Survivors appear on the radar when detected.
  • Adaptive Lighting: Reduced the bonus granted to Undetectable status to 20% (down from 50%).
  • Stereo Remote Mic: Decreases the Disabled State duration of drones.
  • Supercharge: Increased battery life of Claw Traps to 15% (up from 12%).
  • Shotgun Speakers: Survivors with a Claw Trap have no skill check warning. Effects last until the Claw Trap is removed.
  • Low-Power Mode: Decreases Drone Spawn Cooldown.
  • Vital Targeting Processor: Increases Hindered status by 3% when a Survivor is detected by a drone.
  • Brown Noise Generator: Oblivious status applied when receiving a Claw Trap. Effects last until the Claw Trap is removed.
  • Loose Screw: Exhausted status applied when receiving a Claw Trap. Effects last 6 seconds (up from 3 seconds).
  • Randomised Strobes: Increases Hindered status by 1 second when a Survivor is detected by a drone.
  • Advanced Movement Prediction: Reveals Survivor’s aura when they receive a Claw Trap.
  • Ultrasonic Speaker (formerly, “Ultrasonic Trap Speaker”): Decreases scan immunity duration.
  • Expired Batteries: Decreases Claw Trap battery life (50%, instead of 60%). Increases Haste status granted when Survivors are detected on the radar.
  • Prototype Rotor: Increases drone rotation speed.
  • Iridescent Unpublished Manuscript: When a drone is disabled, the drone gains a 32m terror radius for 15 seconds. During this time, The Skull Merchant gains the Undetectable status effect.

The Trapper

The Trapper now gains a 7.5% Haste Status Effect for 5 seconds while setting a trap. The Coffee Grounds Add-On has been altered to reflect this change. The biggest update for this Killer, though, is that it now has 8 Bear Traps on the map to play with instead of only 6.

The Huntress & The Trickster

Reloading hatchets as The Huntress and knives as The Trickster now takes 3 seconds instead of 4 seconds.

The Deathslinger

Reloading as The Deathslinger now takes a slightly shorter 2.6 seconds. The Add-On Warden’s Keep further decreases the reload time by 0.35 seconds, and Jaw Smasher increases movement speed while aiming down sights by 1.5%. Finally, Wanted Poster now increases movement speed while aiming down sights by 3%.

The Legion

The BFFs Add-On has been massively reworked in the way it awards Tokens for hitting Survivors in Feral Frenzy. The second chained hit awards 2 Tokens, the third 3 Tokens, the fourth 4 Tokens, and the fifth 5 Tokens. When the Exit Gates are powered, The Legion gets a 6% speed boost outside of Feral Frenzy if 15 Tokens have been collected.

Anti-Face Camping Feature

Face Camping Killers should be no more. Survivors now have a camp meter that will fill up quickly if a Killer stays too close to them while they’re hooked, and slowly deplete if they leave the hooked Survivor alone. When the meter is filled, Survivors can escape the hook with a guaranteed unhook chance and will gain the Endurance Status Effect for 15 seconds. This feature doesn’t work once the Exit Gates are powered.

Events and Archives

At 11 Am ET on October 11, 2023, Dead by Daylight Tome 17: Commitment will go live. It’ll bring a whole host of new challenges for players to work through in the Rift, and even more cosmetics to pick up from the Rift Pass.

Then, on October 18, 2023, Haunted by Daylight will go live alongside its event Tome. This is a spooky in-game event for Dead by Daylight fans that will award players with Dark Trinkets for completing challenges. These Dark Trinkets can be spent to unlock event-exclusive cosmetics.

Two Map Updates

Two maps have been reworked with this update. These are Shattered Square and the MacMillan Estate Realm maps. As outlined last month, Behaviour Interactive has altered these maps to bring them in line with the needs of players and the practices the development team has set out in recent years.

This means fewer sight lines in Shattered Square and more chase opportunities in other areas. It’s all about improving the flow of each Trial, and both of these maps have always felt off in some ways. From now on, jumping into them should feel like much less of a chore.

Bots Improvements

The Bot skill check system has been reworked, so the success rate now correlates to skill check size, and skill check debuffs actually decrease a Bot’s chance of hitting that skill check.

Bug Fixes

Credit where it’s due, Behaviour Interactive has stomped on dozens of bugs with this update. It should allow players to have a much smoother experience that isn’t plagued by all sorts of mischief. However, it still looks like it’s possible to get The Demogorgon out of nowhere, thanks to the random bug players were discussing in the lead up to this update.
