In Dead by Daylight, there are three types of currency players can earn and use: Auric Cells, Iridescent Shards, and Bloodpoints. While Auric Cells cannot be earned through gameplay, Iridescent Shards, and Bloodpoints can; Iridescent Shards are the harder of the two earnable currencies to get. They can be used for new cosmetics, and can even be used to purchase all non-licensed survivors and killers alike.
Whether you're a new player or a veteran, it isn't easy to get enough Iridescent Shards to buy a new character or cosmetic in this game, so you'll need to work hard for them and utilize the best strategies to earn them. In this guide, we'll walk you through the best and fastest ways to get Iridescent Shards in Behaviour Interactive's Dead By Daylight.
How To Get Iridescent Shards Fast
Play The Game Often
The best and main way to get Iridescent Shards is to play the game often since you'll earn Iridescent Shards each time you level up. You can see your devotion level in the upper right-hand corner; each time you earn enough EXP to fill the bar, you'll level up and earn some Iridescent Shards.
The better you do in matches and the more time you spend in them, the faster you'll earn experience in Dead by Daylight. Your best bet is to do your best in all scoring categories, making sure to not just focus in repairing generators but also healing and unhooking teammates, cleansing totems, and engaging in chases with the killer.
Play During Events
Throughout the year, Dead by Daylight hosts numerous major events, all of which you can find listed in the Year 8 Roadmap. During these events, Dead By Daylight often gives out free Bloodpoints, Iridescent Shards, and cosmetics. It's a good idea to keep track of the event dates, and log in each day during them to maximize your rewards.
Iridescent Shards are one of the harder currencies to earn in Dead by Daylight, so there are unfortunately only a few methods to get them, and they require you to play the game as much as you can. If you put in a lot of hours and make sure to play to win, though, you'll no doubt rack up EXP and thus lots of Iridescent Shards in no time.
