Dead by Daylight Patch 6.2.1 is primarily a bugfix patch, meaning that it is meant to fix some of the problems users face in the game. Alongside these bugfixes, though, developers have included a not-so-obvious buff to The Mastermind.

Here is everything included in Dead by Daylight Patch 6.2.1, releasing 6th September 2022.

The Dead by Daylight Patch 6.2.1 includes a variety of bugfixes following the release of the new chapter, but it also buffs The Mastermind in some seemingly minor but actually very meaningful ways.

He is now able to grab survivors with Virulent Bound at a wider range, and Wesker players will earn more points toward their Chaser emblem using Virulent Bound, thus making it easier to earn Adept Mastermind. Here are all of the changes from Behaviour Interactive.

Features

  • The Mastermind
    • Increased the size of Survivor detection for triggering grabs with Virulent Bound
    • Damage done with Virulent Bound now counts towards the Chaser emblem
