In addition to addressing various issues with this recent addition, the patch also includes several add-on changes, bug fixes, and overall gameplay improvements.

Updates to The Skull Merchant Killer

The Skull Merchant has received several base power changes, including a flat Haste Status Effect for each Survivor detected on the radar. The bonus percentages are as follows: one Survivor: +3%, two Survivors: +5%, three Survivors: +6%, and four Survivors: +7%. Note that the player doesn’t need to be Inspecting the Radar to receive these bonuses. Additionally, several add-on changes have been made, such as introducing the Ultrasonic Trap Speaker and adjusting the rarity and percentages of some add-ons.

Miscellaneous Updates

The Leverage perk still works on self-healing, contrary to earlier patch notes. Screams caused by Perks have been updated to be heard map-wide, as they were prior to version 6.6.0.

Bug Fixes

A variety of bug fixes have been implemented in patch 6.6.2, affecting Archives & Challenges, Audio, Bots, Characters, Maps, Perks, Platforms, Killer – Skull Merchant, and UI. Some notable fixes include:

  • Bots can now ask other players to move out of their way.
  • Bots no longer give up when Broken and within the area of a Boon: Circle of Healing.
  • Fixed an issue that caused Yun-Jin and a few other female survivors’ faces to be different when on the hook.
  • Fixed an issue where The Knight’s Healing Poultice, The Onryo’s Distorted Photo, and The Oni’s Iridescent Family Crest Add-ons incorrectly revealed auras for the duration of their effect.
  • The Haste status effect icon no longer appears on screen when Teamwork: Collective Stealth is active.

Dead by Daylight’s patch 6.6.2 brings multiple improvements and bug fixes, enhancing the gameplay experience for players and addressing various issues found in previous versions.
