Dead By Daylight Best Blight Build (July 2022)

Dead By Daylight Best Blight Build (July 2022)

What is the best Blight 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 Descend Below Chapter.

Further down we’ll cover off his standard perks and powers as well as the perks we would opt for when trying to assemble the best Blight 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 Blight Power & Perks

The Blight 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
Dragon’s Grip
(unlocked at level 30 in Bloodweb)
After kicking a Generator, for the next 30 seconds, the first Survivor interacting with it will scream, revealing their location for 4 seconds, and suffers from the Exposed Status Effect for 60 seconds.

Dragon’s Grip has a cool-down of Several Seconds.

Hex: Blood Favour
(unlocked at level 35 in Bloodweb)
A Hex that gains the favour of The Entity when blood is spilt.

  • Whenever a Survivor loses a Health State by any means and thus enters the Injured State, Hex: Blood Favour calls upon The Entity to block all Pallets within Several Metres of that Survivor’s location from being pulled down for the next 15 seconds.

The Hex effects persist as long as the related Hex Totem is standing.

Hex: Undying
(unlocked at level 40 in Bloodweb)
A Hex which maintains the vile powers that flow throughout the Trial. The Auras of Survivors within Several Metres of any Dull Totem are revealed to you.

  • When another Perk’s Hex Totem is cleansed or blessed, its Hex is transferred to the Hex: Undying Totem, including any accumulated Tokens, disabling Hex: Undying instead.

The Hex effects persist as long as the related Hex Totem is standing.

In addition to his standard perks, The Blight can also use his unique power called Blighted Corruption. Here’s how it works:

“Use tokens to initiate a high-speed Rush, during which the Blight cannot attack. After colliding with a surface, The Blight can use another token to initiate a Lethal Rush that he can end with a quick attack. On any Rush other than the first, he can attack. The Blight can chain as many Rushes as he has tokens available, an ideal tool for applying pressure.”

What are the best perks for The Blight?

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

Bamboozle – This perk is unique to The Clown

  • Performing a vault action is 5/10/15% faster and calls upon The Entity to block that Vault location for Survivors for 8/12/16 seconds

Cruel Limits – This perk is unique to The Demogorgon

  • Each time a Generator is repaired, all Windows and Vaults within 32 metres of the completed Generator will be blocked off for all Survivors for the next 20/25/30 seconds.

Fire Up – This perk is unique to Freddy Krueger/The Nightmare

  • Each time a Generator is completed, Fire Up grows in power.
  • Gain a stackable 3/3.5/4% action speed bonus to picking up and dropping survivors, breaking pallets and breakable walls, damaging generators and vaulting windows up to a maximum of 15/17.5/20%.

Hex: Blood Favour – This perk is unique to The Blight

  • A Hex that gains the favour of The Entity when blood is spilt.
  • Hitting a Survivor with either your Basic Attack or Special Attack prompts The Entity to hold all Pallets within a radius of several metres from your location in place for the next 15 seconds, preventing Survivors from pulling them down.
  • The Hex effects persist as long as the related Hex Totem is standing.
