Updated 1 December 2023 - Chucky has been in the game for about a week now, giving us time to try out some new Chucky builds! We've updated this article accordingly, so be sure to give them a go. 

Dead by Daylight's newest killer is Chucky, and this doll is ready to play. Here's your guide to his power, perks, and the best builds for this killer.

Chucky Power And Perks

To pick out the best perks for Chucky you'll first need to understand his power and how it works so you can think about how the game's many perks may be able to complement it. You should also learn more about The Good Guy's teachable perks since they come with the killer by default and can be used together to earn Adept Chucky. Let's go over all of The Good Guy's perks:

Hex: Two Can Play Anytime

Any time you are stunned or blinded by a Survivor 4/3/2 times, if there is no Hex Totem associated with this Perk, a Dull Totem becomes a Hex Totem. While the Hex Totem stands, Survivors who stun or blind you get blinded for 1.5 seconds.

Friends 'Til the End

When you hook a Survivor that is not the Obsession, the Obsession becomes exposed for 20 seconds and reveals their aura for 6/8/10 seconds. When you hook the Obsession, another random Survivor screams and reveals their position and becomes the Obsession.

Batteries Included

When within 12 meters of a completed Generator, you have 5% Haste. The movement speed bonus lingers for 1/3/5 seconds when you are no longer in range.

Power: Hidey-Ho Mode

The Good Guy has two separate modes he can switch between; Normal Mode and Hidey-Ho Mode. Due to his short height, The Good Guy also has a fixed third-person camera positioned above and behind him, giving the player a better view of his surroundings. He is also much shorter than other Killers making him very stealthy, however he leaves fading footprints behind as he walks.

  • SPECIAL ABILITY: Hidey-Ho Mode Press the Active Ability button to enter Hidey-Ho Mode for 20 seconds. While in this mode, the Killer has no Terror Radius, and "distraction" footprints and audio are spawned all across the map.
  • SPECIAL ATTACK: Slice & Dice While in Hidey-Ho Mode, press and hold the Special Attack button to charge up a Slice & Dice Attack. When charged, sprint forward at high speed, triggering an attack at the end (or whenever the Special Attack button is released).
  • SPECIAL ABILITY: Scamper While in Hidey-Ho Mode, when you are near a vault or pallet, press the Interaction button to scamper through it quickly without breaking it.

Beginner Chucky Build

  • Friends 'til The End (The Good Guy)
  • Hex: Two Can Play Anytime (The Good Guy)
  • Whispers
  • Mindbreaker

When you're just starting out as Chucky, you'll want to use a build that really takes advantage of his strengths. His perks will help you combat common survivor strategies, like blinding. You'll also be able to ensure that survivors are Exposed.

This build contains only general perks and perks that are unique to Chucky, meaning you'll be able to find them in your Bloodweb without purchasing any other characters.

Mass Confusion Chucky Build

With this build, you can inflict confusion upon survivors by causing a fake terror radius and making your Undetectable ability even more impactful and disorienting using Dark Devotion. You'll also be able to inflict Blindness quite often. Survivors will be left scrambling as you'll seemingly be "everywhere" on the map even when you're not around, especially with your Footfall to help you terrorize survivors.

You Can Run, But You Can't Hide Chucky Build

  • Discordance (The Legion)
  • Lethal Pursuer (The Nemesis)
  • Dark Devotion (The Plague)
  • Friends 'til The End (The Good Guy)

These perks will allow you to find survivors throughout the match, ensuring that you'll be able to sneak up on them while using your Hidey-Ho ability. Some perks in this build - notably Dark Devotion - will further increase your stealth and help you scare those survivors.

The Best Perks For Chucky

Those are all the best builds for The Good Guy, but you might still be wondering which individual perks work best on this killer. After all, creating your own builds can be fun and allow you to try new playstyles.

We would suggest you mix and match the following perks to create an incredible build for Chucky:

  • Whispers
  • Discordance (The Legion)
  • Dark Devotion (The Plague)
  • Friends 'til The End (The Good Guy)
  • A Nurse's Calling (The Nurse)
  • Bamboozle (The Clown)

We recommend mixing and matching the perks in the builds we've provided to create your favorite loadout. As you familiarize yourself with this killer, you'll determine which perks are your favorites and be able to mix and match these perks effectively.
