Dead By Daylight Best Nurse Build (July 2022)

Dead By Daylight Best Nurse Build (July 2022)

What is the best Nurse build in Dead by Daylight? Hopefully, this guide will help get to the bottom of that question as well as giving players all the information they need to help elevate their skills with the DLC killer from the Last Breath Chapter.

Further down we’ll cover off her standard perks and powers as well as the perks we would opt for when trying to assemble the best Nurse build in Dead By Daylight. Naturally, this is subjective and we’ll always attempt to keep this page updated as new chapters and major updates are released.

July 1 Update: The recent June update for Dead By Daylight has caused a major shake up of meta and non-meta perks for killers and survivors. We're checking how these BIG changes shake up the build meta before adjusting our guide. We'll update this page soon with any changes.

The Nurse Power & Perks

The Nurse killer has three unique perks that can be unlocked for other killers via the Bloodweb.

Alternatively, you can also unlock them via the games Shrine of Secrets.

We’ve detailed everything you need to know about these 3 main perks, just below.

Perk Description
Stridor
(unlocked at level 30 in Bloodweb)
You are acutely sensitive to the breathing of your prey.

  • Increases the volume of Survivors’ Grunts of Pain by Several Percent.
  • Increases the volume of Survivors’ regular breathing by Several Percent.
Thanatophobia
(unlocked at level 35 in Bloodweb)
Their courage fades in the face of their undeniable mortality. Each injured, dying, or hooked Survivor incurs a stack-able Several Percent penalty to all Survivors’ Repairing, Sabotaging, and Cleansing Action speeds, up to a maximum of Several Percent.
A Nurse’s Calling
(unlocked at level 40 in Bloodweb)
Unlocks potential in your Aura-reading ability.

  • The Auras of Survivors, who are healing or being healed, are revealed to you when they are within a range of Several Metres.

In addition to her standard perks, The Nurse can also use her unique power called Spencer’s Last Breath. Here’s how it works:

“Charge a Blink to teleport a great distance, quickly gaining the ability to charge a second Blink. Once all charged Blinks are expended, The Nurse may elect to attack before she is briefly struck with fatigue.”

What are the best perks for The Nurse?

When creating the best build for The Nurse, we would personally opt for the following perks to maximise her potential:

BBQ & Chili – This perk is unique to The Cannibal

  • A deep bond with The Entity unlocks potential in one’s Aura-reading ability. After hooking a Survivor, all other Survivors’ Auras are revealed to you for 4 seconds when they are farther than 40 metres from the Hook. Each time a Survivor is hooked for the first time, gain a stack-able 25 % bonus to all Bloodpoint gains, up to a maximum of several percent.

Blood Echo – This perk is unique to The Oni

  • The agony of one is inflicted onto others. When hooking a Survivor, all other injured Survivors suffer from the Haemorrhage Status Effect until healed and the Exhausted Status Effect for 45 seconds.

Hex: Ruin – This perk is unique to The Hag

  • A Hex that affects all Survivor’s Generator Repair progress. All Generators automatically regress at percentage of the normal Regression speed whenever they are not being repaired. The Hex effects persist as long as the related Hex Totem is standing.

Tinkerer – This perk is unique to The Hillbilly

  • Whenever a Generator is repaired to 70 %, it triggers a Loud Noise notification and you are granted the Undetectable Status Effect for the next several seconds.
