How To Counter The Blight In Dead By Daylight

Alongside The Nurse, The Blight is one of Dead by Daylight's longest-standing S-tier killers; given his ability to zoom around the map and approach survivors from highly unexpected angles, there are few things The Blight can't do. Whether you're a veteran survivor or you've just started playing Dead by Daylight for the first time, The Blight is probably on your list of the most challenging killers to go up against.

It's never easy to face a good Blight, but that doesn't mean you can't win if you try. With some hard work, practice, and game knowledge, you can beat even the greatest Blight players and find yourself running out the exit gate with your survivor skills. In this guide, we'll go over all of the best tips, tricks, and strategies to counter Dead by Daylight's Blight.

Break Line Of Sight Against The Blight

If you're standing out in the open, it's easy for The Blight to run up to you with his Lethal Rush and land an injury. If you're standing behind a wall or large rock, on the other hand, it might take The Blight multiple Rushes to get to you, so you'll have time to either juke him, hide, or move out of the loop. To prevent The Blight from landing easy hits, you should break the line of sight as often as you can, both during chases and while walking through the map.

Make Unpredictable Moves Against The Blight

The Blight's Rushes are fast and deadly, but they aren't the easiest to aim. If you move around in unexpected ways, it's easier for you to avoid getting hit by The Blight's Rushes. If you see a Blight Rushing toward you, take time to adjust yourself and move at the right time; you might try running in a circle, hiding close to him to prevent yourself from entering his field of view, or just dodging to the left or right. It takes practice to get good at avoiding The Blight's Rush, so play a few matches against this killer to get a feel for when and where you should move to dodge his Rushes.

Avoid Being Detected By The Blight

The Blight is one of the strongest killers in the game, meaning that his ability might end up in you going down even if you make all of the right moves. To avoid ending up in a chase with this killer in the first place, you should take a stealthy approach and avoid being detected by The Blight if at all possible. This will prevent him from Rushing up to you without your knowledge, giving you little time to adjust.

That's all you need to know to go up against The Blight, one of the strongest killers in Dead by Daylight. Winning trials against The Blight isn't an easy task, but it's more than possible with some practice and game knowledge.
