Dead by Daylight releases a new killer with almost every chapter, and fans are no doubt most excited every year about the anniversary chapter. The newest killer, The Dredge, has been released with Dead by Daylight's 2022 6th anniversary celebration.

Here are the best Dredge builds and how you can use them to easily take down survivors in Dead by Daylight.

The Dredge's power allows him to teleport around the map through lockers, stealthily sneaking up on survivors before landing a quick hit.

After gaining his greater power, Nightfall, which can occur multiple times within a match, he forces survivors to navigate through darkness and can teleport even more quickly.

The best builds for The Dredge take advantage of his ability to teleport around the map quickly and efficiently. 

Down in the Dark

  • Knock Out (The Cannibal)
  • Dragon's Grip (The Blight) 
  • Scourge Hook: Floods of Rage (The Onryo)
  • Darkness Revealed (The Dredge)

This build makes it nearly impossible to find other downed survivors in Nightfall. With the combination of the darkness in Nightfall and the fact that other survivors can't see downed survivors' auras with Knock Out, even experienced survivors will struggle to counter this build. 

Scourge Hook: Floods of Rage and Darkness Revealed will ensure that even though the survivors don't know where you are, you'll be able to pinpoint their exact locations at convenient times. 

Can't Stop The Pressure

  • Spirit Fury (The Spirit)
  • Enduring (The Hillbilly) 
  • Save The Best For Last (The Shape)
  • Tinkerer (The Hillbilly) 

Spirit Fury, Enduring, and Save The Best For Last all allow you to have an incredibly powerful chase as the match goes on. If you're efficient with The Dredge's Remnant, which can add mind games to any loop, this build will be sure to grant you downs with your increased chase power. 

Tinkerer ensures that the generators don't fly immediately, and that you're able to pressure survivors off of generators. 

And that's all. For more Dead by Daylight guides, tips, leaks, and news, be sure to check out our dedicated category!
