With the recent release of Project W, Dead by Daylight has had a lot of major changes, updates, and new features in store for players this past month. This most recent patch, patch 6.2.2, is a more minor one, with fixes to existing content and a few unsubstantial perk changes.

The notes for this patch include various feature changes, as well as changes to niche perks like Jill Valentine’s Blast Mine.

Blast Mine allows survivors to trap a generator after repairing it to 66%, causing an explosion and blind when the killer kicks the generator within 45 seconds.

The perk was recently nerfed in the last update, now causing survivors to no longer instantly re-earn their trap if the survivor does not kick the trapped generator. Several buffs have been applied in this 6.2.2. patch to compensate, including a longer active window. 

Here are all of the changes in the patch notes for today, 13th September 2022, including the changes to Blast Mine. 

Features

  • Anonymous Mode Removed from Multiple platforms

  • Removed from PS4, PS5, Xbox, Windows Store, Switch, and Stadia builds.

  • build. To ensure players are still able to use the platform-level features to block or report players, we will not be able to support Anonymous Mode on these

  • platforms for the time being. However, we have left in the other options to hide your name to help anyone who wants to stream their game from one of these platforms.

  • The ability to report players has not been removed, as ever an in-game report is still required, however when completing the Support Form, you no longer need

Content

  • Updated Bite the Bullet Perk description for clarity.

  • Blast Mine: Requires 50% of a generator to activate (was 66%); trap stays active for 40/45/50 seconds (was 35/40/45).

    • Dev note: Blast Mine no longer returns to you if the Killer does not kick the generator. Now that this has been fixed, we’ve given it some small buffs to compensate.

  • Blast Mine: Updated description to clarify deactivation conditions.
