In Dead by Daylight, the Shrine of Secrets refreshes each week with four new perks.

Here are the perks in Dead by Daylight's Shrine of Secrets for the week of 17th August 2022:

  • Any Means Necessary (Yui Kimura)
  • Boon: Exponential (Jonah Vasquez)
  • Stridor (The Nurse)
  • Hex: Ruin (The Hag)

You can purchase Tier 1 of these perks from the Shrine for 2,000 Iridescent Shards, Tier 2 for 4,000, or Tier 3 for 6,000.

Any Means Necessary allows you to reset a dropped pallet back to its upright position, allowing you to use it again and get even more juice out of it in a chase or use it again to stun the killer.

Jonah Vasquez's Boon: Exponential allows you and other survivors within boon range to pick yourselves up from the ground when downed by the killer. The boon must be applied to a Hex or dull totem around the map.

As for the killer perks, Stridor makes it easier to hear survivors as they move around the map. Hex: Ruin causes generators to instantly regress when survivors let go of them until the Hex totem is cleansed by a survivor or a survivor is killed.

The Shrine of Secrets rotates weekly, so if you don't see any perks you like this week, you can check the Shrine for new ones on 24th August at 7 PM ET.
