Dead By Daylight Best Legion Build (July 2022)

Dead By Daylight Best Legion Build (July 2022)

What is the best Legion 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 Darkness Among Us 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 Legion 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 Legion Power & Perks

The Legion 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
Discordance
(unlocked at level 30 in Bloodweb)
Any Generator within a range of Several Metres that is being repaired by 2 or more Survivors is marked by a yellow Aura.

  • When the Generator is first highlighted, Discordance  triggers a Loud Noise Notification on the Generator.
  • After the Generator is no longer within range or is being repaired by just 1 Survivor, the highlighted Aura will linger for another 4 seconds.
Mad Grit
(unlocked at level 35 in Bloodweb)
While carrying a Survivor, you suffer no cool-down on missed attacks.

  • Successfully hitting a Survivor will pause the carried Survivor’s Wiggling Progression for Several Seconds.
Iron Maiden
(unlocked at level 40 in Bloodweb)
You open Lockers Several Percent faster. Survivors who exit Lockers will scream and suffer from the Exposed Status Effect for 30 seconds and their location is revealed to you for 4 seconds.

In addition to his standard perks, Legion can also use his unique power called Feral Frenzy. Here’s how it works:

“Enter a sprint and chain attacks to hit multiple Survivors. Upon hitting a Survivor in Feral Frenzy, your power gauge will be replenished, and the location of all Survivors within your Terror Radius will be revealed. While using Feral Frenzy, The Legion can vault over windows and pallets. Missing an attack, getting stunned, or running out of power will end Feral Frenzy.”

What are the best perks for The Legion?

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

Bitter Murmur – This is a general perk for all killers

  • Each time a Generator is completed, the Auras of Survivors who are within 16 metres of the completed Generator will be revealed to you for 5 seconds.

Discordance – This perk is unique to The Legion

  • Any Generator within a range of several metres that is being repaired by 2 or more Survivors is marked by a yellow Aura.
  • When the Generator is first highlighted, Discordance triggers a Loud Noise notification on the Generator.
  • After the Generator is no longer within range or is being repaired by just 1 Survivor, the highlighted Aura will linger for another 4 seconds.

Sloppy Butcher – This perk is unique to The Trapper

  • Wounds inflicted by Basic Attacks cause Survivors to suffer from the Haemorrhage and Mangled Status Effects

Spies from the Shadows – This is a general perk for all killers

  • Crows startled by Survivors within 20/28/36 metres alert you with a Loud Noise notification.
