Dead By Daylight Best Executioner Build (2022)

Dead By Daylight Best Executioner Build (2022)

What is the best Executioner 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 Silent Hill 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 Executioner 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.

The Executioner Power & Perks

The Executioner 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
Forced Penance
(unlocked at level 30 in Bloodweb)
Those who stand in the way of duty will suffer harsh judgement. Survivors who take a Protection Hit suffer from the Broken Status Effect for the next Several Seconds.
Trail of Torment
(unlocked at level 35 in Bloodweb)
You guide your victims along a path of pain and punishment.
After kicking a Generator, you are granted the Undetectable Status Effect until that Generator stops regressing or you damage a Survivor by any means.

  • The Aura of that Generator is revealed to all Survivors in yellow.

Trail of Torment has a cool-down of Several Seconds.

(unlocked at level 40 in Bloodweb)
Those whose lives are intertwined in darkness are destined to suffer together. When a Survivor heals another Survivor for the equivalent of 1 Health State at least 32 metres away from you, that Survivor will scream, revealing their location and activating Deathbound:

  • For the next 60 seconds, that Survivor suffers from the Oblivious Status Effect when farther than Several Metres away from the healed Survivor.

In addition to his standard perks, The Executioner can also use his unique power called Rites of Judgement. Here’s how it works:

“Carve a trail into the ground, inflicting Torment on any Survivor that crosses it. Pyramid Head can also fire a ranged attack – the Punishment of the Damned – while Rites of Judgment is active.”

What are the best perks for The Execution?

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

A Nurse’s Calling – This perk is unique to The Nurse

  • 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.

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.

I’m All Ears – This perk is unique to Ghost Face

  • Unlocks potential in your Aura-reading ability, sharpening your keen senses in the dark Realm of The Entity. Any Survivor performing a rushed action within 48 metres of your location will have their Aura revealed to you for 6 seconds. I’m All Ears can only be triggered once every couple of seconds.

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.
