Dead by Daylight Wiki

Luck is a Game Mechanic featured in Dead by Daylight IconHelp DBDlogo.png.


Overview

Luck affects a Survivor's chances of unhooking themselves from a Hook IconHelpLoading hook.png and freeing themselves from a Bear Trap IconPowers trap.png.
It does not affect the Rarity of an Item found in a Chest IconHelp chests.png.

Some Offerings IconHelp offerings.png can increase the Luck of Survivors, either for oneself or for all of them. The same applies for Up the Ante IconPerks upTheAnte.png.

Proficiency Indicator

If an action is affected by Luck, the Chance Proficiency Indicator will be shown in the HUD:

IconStatusEffects luck.png The Chance Proficiency Indicator works alongside the Luck mechanic and indicates whether the action the Player is currently performing has a higher or lower chance at succeeding.
  • Only applies to actions that have the possibility to fail, such as escaping from Bear Traps IconPowers trap.png and self-unhooking from a Hook IconHelpLoading hook.png.
