DBD Patch Note – PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, PC, and Xbox One are now able to download Dead by Daylight update 5.5.2. This latest update brings several tweaks, changes, and improvements to the gameplay, according to the official DBD update 5.5.2 patch notes. Additionally, Dead by Daylight patch 5.5.2 also changes various aspects of stability for the game as a whole.
It was previously announced that there would be a big update which would add a new Killer (The Artist), a new Survivor (Jonah Vasquez), plus many other things.
There have been a number of issues with the game since the last patch. Several of these issues will be addressed in today’s patch 5.5.2. Find out more below.
New Updates in DBD patch notes 5.5.2 – February 9, 2022
1. The Boil Over has been changed to give 33% of the current wiggle progress when falling from great heights (was a flat 25% increase).
The reason for this change mentioned above is that it prevents abuse of Boil Over in specific map areas where there is no choice but for the killer to jump from a height. The change is still useful especially for longer walks and access to basements. Even with an insta-drop at over 75% wiggle progress, it still results in a wiggle drop.
2. Added new Daily Ritual: “Rite of The Executioner” that requires sending two Survivors to the cages of atonement (was four).
