The Dead by Daylight Rank Reset changed recently following the launch of Patch 5.2.0. With the integration of Skill-Based Matchmaking, the old Ranks system became obsolete after 5 Years in the Game and was quickly replaced with a new Grades system.
Keep reading, we’ll explain exactly how this new grades system works – because it can be a bit confusing for new (and old) players – when the monthly reset takes place, what rewards players can earn each month and everything else you need to know.
The next Dead by Daylight Reset is coming on September 13.
Dead by Daylight Grades Ranking System Explained
As we mentioned, the Grades system was only introduced recently, with the launch of patch 5.20 in September 2021, with further revisions made to grades in February 2022. So the all-important question is: what do the grades mean in Dead By Daylight?
The Grades system does work, by-en-large, the same as ranks. In the previous ranking system players were tasked with starting at Rank 20 and slowly advancing to Rank 1. From now though, players will start from Ash IV and work their way to the top grade of Iridescent I. Likewise, you earn Grades the same way as you earned Ranks, by earning pips in each match you play until you reach the next grade threshold.
So what are the big differences? Well, first off, unlike before you can increase your grade by earning pips but there’s now a limit to how many pips you can lose each match. Plus, you’ll never move down a Grade, so the only way is up. Likewise, unlike the old Ranks system, your Grade is not used for Dead By Daylight’s Matchmaking-process. This is especially helpful when you consider that both Killers and Survivors now have a separate Grade.
In short, this helps with balancing matches, and in theory, you won’t be playing against a higher Grade Killer when you’re a lower Grade Survivor.
When does Dead By Daylight rank reset?
The Rank Reset, or Grades Reset as it should now be called will happen on the 13th of each month, every month.
Following the reset time, grades will be reset to Ash IV (the lowest grade) and you’ll receive up to 250,000 Bloodpoints depending on how far you’ve managed to climb in the previous month. As we mentioned previously, you have a separate grade for your killer and survivor. As such players will be rewarded for each role separately, so playing both sides can reap double the rewards and earn you more Bloodpoints.

Dead by Daylight grade rewards
Following the Rank Reset time on the 13th of each month, players will be given their Killer and Survivor grade, and earn various Bloodpoint rewards based on their position that month.
The Grade rewards can be seen on the below chart, and as we touched on, players will start on Grade 4 Ash, and work their way up from there.
