Here are all of the best builds for The Singularity in Dead by Daylight.
The Best Singularity Builds In Dead By Daylight (Update 8.0.0)
3 June 2024 - We've updated the page to reflect any recent changes to perks and abilities in Patch 8.0.0 that might impact the best Singularity builds available right now. 

The Singularity Power And Perks

To pick out the best perks for The Singularity, 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 Singularity's teachable perks since they come with the killer by default and can be used together to earn Adept Singularity. Let's go over all of The Singularity’s perks:

Perk: Genetic Limits

  • When a Survivor finishes the healing action, they suffer the Exhausted status effect for 24/28/32 seconds.

Perk: Forced Hesitation

  • When a Survivor is put into the dying state by any means, all other Survivors standing within 16/16/16 meters around them suffer the hindered Status effect for 10/10/10 seconds, reducing their Movement speed by 15%. This perk goes on cooldown for 60/50/40 seconds.

Perk: Machine Learning

  • After performing the damage generator action, Machine Learning activates. While this perk is active, the next generator you damage will be compromised until it is completed. The generator is highlighted in Yellow. When the compromised generator is completed, you become undetectable and gain 7% Haste for 20/25/30 seconds. Then, Machine Learning deactivates. If you break a gen while another generator is compromised, the compromised generator moves to the latest one kicked.

Power: Quantum Instantiation

The Singularity's power is called Quantum Instantiation, which allows him to spawn Biopods around the map that he can use to attack survivors.

The in-game description reads:

A dark Crystalline structure in an ancient ruin gifted - or perhaps cursed - Hux with sentience. He build a new body, and with it, a terrifying way to bend the rules of physics to his benefit.

The Singularity can shoot and spawn Biopods around the map; these Biopods can attach to any verticle surface they land on. The Singularity can control a Biopod remotely and look through it, and tag Survivors, afflicting them with a Temporal Slipstream. When slipstreamed, The Singularity can teleport next to the Slipstreamed Survivor either by using the Biopods to tag them, or by shooting them. When a Slipstreamed Survivor is in proximity to another Survivor, the Slipstream can spread.


After a successful Slipstream teleport, the Singularity enters Overlock Mode. In this state, walls and pallets can be destroyed faster, vaulting speed is faster and he cannot be stunned by pallets. Attempts to stun by pallet merely remove Overclock Mode and momentarily slow the Singularity.


At the beginning of each Trial, several supply cases spawn, each containing an EMP. Survivors can use these EMPs to remove the Slipstream from themselves or others, or to briefly disable a Biopod. Once used, the EMP is destroyed.

The Singularity has a lot of map pressure thanks to its Biopods and ability to teleport. This means that it can either benefit from perks that further boost those innate strong abilities, allowing it to move around the map even faster, or use perks that make up for its weaknesses.

With so many perks available in Dead by Daylight, there is not just one build that works well on Singularity - there are many choices. Here are just a few of the best.

Beginner Singularity Build

When you're just starting out as the Singularity, you'll want to use a build that really takes advantage of its strengths. These perks will help you maintain pressure throughout the match, as well as take down any remaining survivors at the end. All of these builds contain only general perks and perks that are unique to The Singularity, meaning you'll be able to find them in your Bloodweb without purchasing any other characters.

  • Hex: No One Escapes Death
  • Whispers
  • Machine Learning (The Singularity)
  • Forced Hesitation (The Singularity)

Generator Pressure Singularity Build

As the Singularity, you'll have the ability to easily pressure generators and ensure that survivors do not quickly complete them thanks to your ability to quickly move around the map. By using the perks in this build, including The Legion's Discordance and The Nemesis' Lethal Pursuer, you can easily find the survivors who are working on generators; Jolt will allow you to apply a little bit of extra regression.

When using the 'Forced Hesitation' perk, a Survivor entering the Dying State will impact all Survivors in the vicinity, making them become Hindered and moving more slowly.
