Dead By Daylight Reveals New Finishing Mori System

Dead by Daylight's new Finishing Mori system is coming up soon, and you'll be able to test it out on the Public Test Build. Here's what we know about the new Mori system so far.
Dead By Daylight Reveals New Finishing Mori System

Earlier this year, Dead by Daylight teased heavy changes to their Mori system. Moris occur when a killer brings a unique offering to kill the survivors - or just one survivor - by hand, allowing them to perform a special animation. They're loved by many players but hated by others, as they can be used to single out individual survivors.

In the next Public Test Build, developers are testing a form of Mori that does not require killers to bring a Memento Mori offering; instead, it's an automatic process. But survivors will get a few buffs in the process, too.

Here is everything you need to know about the updated Memento Mori system in Dead by Daylight, coming soon.

It's important to note that while these changes will be playable on the Public Test Build next week, they will not go live in the next update. The team needs more time to hone the new Finishing Moris before they hit live servers.

Last Standing Survivor Status

When all other Survivors are dead, dying, hooked, or have escaped, the last remaining survivor will become the Last Standing.

Both you and the killer will have a wider field of view during this time, allowing you to navigate the map more easily. If you rescue a survivor, you'll become free from the Last Standing status - but if you're downed, you will go to the Finishing Mori with the killer.

A Finishing Mori occurs when the Last Standing is downed, and you'll be teleported to a clear, open area on the map so the Killer can start their Mori. All remaining survivors will be sacrificed instantly, meaning you can only Mori one survivor per match.

Rescuing a Survivor will end the Last Standing phase. But being downed as the final Survivor, on the other hand, will trigger the Finishing Mori.

Base-kit Unbreakable

Now that having all four survivors in the dying state essentially means an instant win for the killer, survivors need a few new features in their own kit to combat the new Moris.

Survivors will be able to pick themselves up off the ground after 45 seconds - and this time is still affected by times that speed up your pickup, like Unbreakable and Boon: Exponential. This will allow survivors an opportunity to recover as a team in case of seemingly certain death.

Perk Updates

Because a 45-second version of Unbreakable is now base-kit - and so are Moris - some perks that involve Moris and picking yourself up need to see changes.

The perk updates are as follows:

  • The ability to pick yourself up has been removed from Unbreakable, Soul Guard, No Mither, and Boon: Exponential
  • The ability to Mori Survivors has been removed from Rancor and Hex: Devour Hope

Even more changes will be coming to perks in the Public Test Build. While official descriptions haven't been released, the team did tease a few of the new perk descriptions.

  • Unbreakable: Now increases dying self-recovery speed by 80/90/100%.
  • Rancor: Once all generators are powered, the Obsession’s aura is revealed for 5 seconds, and they are permanently inflicted with the Exposed Status Effect.
  • Hex: Devour Hope: Once 5 tokens have been earned, any Survivor placed on a hook is instantly sacrificed.

These changes will allow these perks to maintain their spirit and strength while not contradicting the new base-kit.

Memento Mori Offerings

With the new Mori Finisher system, you might be wondering what will happen to your Memento Mori Offerings.

Offerings will now award you with a certain number of Bloodpoints for finishing with a Finishing Mori depending on the number of survivors killed.

  • Cypress Memento Mori: Gain 8,000 Bloodpoints if at least 2 Survivors are killed and the match ends in a Finishing Mori.
  • Ivory Memento Mori: Gain 12,000 Bloodpoints if at least 3 Survivors are killed and the match ends in a Finishing Mori.
  • Ebony Memento Mori: Gain 20,000 Bloodpoints if at least 4 Survivors are killed and the match ends in a Finishing Mori.

As we mentioned earlier, none of these Memento Mori changes will be coming in the upcoming 6.3.0 update - but you will get the chance to test them out in next week's Public Test Build.
