Status Effects

IconHelp statusEffects
IconHelp statusEffectList
AllStatusEffects

All available Status Effects (except for Madness and Sleep Penalty) active at the same time.[1]

First added with Patch 1.5.0, Status Effects show whenever a Survivor is affected by a special effect or affliction, indicated by a corresponding icon above the Perk diamond.
The icon's colour will reflect whether it is a buff (yellow) or a debuff (red).

Tiered Status Effects feature up to three Chevrons on the icon:
The more chevrons a Status Effect has, the stronger is its effect.
There are currently just two tiered Status Effects: BloodlustIconHelp bloodlustIconHelp bloodlustIconHelp bloodlust and MadnessIconStatusEffects madnessIconStatusEffects madnessIconStatusEffects madness.

Status Effects that are on a timer may have their timer refreshed by a new application of the effect, but will generally not stack the strength of their effects.

Proficiency Indicators

IconHelp proficiency
IconHelp proficiencyList

First added with Patch 1.5.0, Proficiency Indicators indicate to both Killers and Survivors how various effects from either their own Add-ons, Perks, Offerings, etc., or those of other Players, affect their performance at the interaction they are currently performing.
They do this by displaying the effect's associated icon above the Progress Bar and by colouring said bar accordingly.

Unlike Status Effects, Proficiency Indicators are not inherently a buff (yellow) or a debuff (red) in effect, but can be either, indicated by the colour of the icon and the colour of the Progress Bar.

Progress Bar

The Progress Bar is displayed whenever an interaction requires a certain amount of Charges to be completed.
The Bar has 3 possible states/colours:

State & Colour Icon Information
Default State: blueish white ProgressBar neutralProgressionComplete The Player's Action speed is exactly 1 Charge per second (default).
Buff State: yellow ProgressBar yellowProgressionComplete The Player's Action speed is greater than 1 Charge per second.
Debuff State: red ProgressBar redProgressionComplete The Player's Action speed is less than 1 Charge per second.

It should be duly noted that the colour of the Progression is individual to each Player.
Even if the overall interaction (i.e. Generator Repair with multiple Survivors) is faster than the default Action speed of 1 Charge per second, if your individual speed/contribution to this is below that (i.e. due to Efficiency penalty), or above that (i.e. Toolbox Repair), the Progress Bar will be coloured accordingly.


Chance

Main article: Chance


FulliconStatusEffects chance The Chance Proficiency Indicator works alongside the Luck Mechanic and indicates whether the action a Survivor is currently performing has a higher or lower chance at succeeding.
  • Only applies to self-unhooking from a HookIconHelpLoading hookIconHelpLoading hookIconHelpLoading hook.


Efficiency

  • This Proficiency Indicator was originally known as Expertise.

Player Effects System

MaximumPerkEffects

Maximum number of Player Effects possible in a single Trial as of CHAPTER 27.[2]

The Player Effects System is used to indicate when something is affecting the Player and their abilities directly.

It was the very first such information system in Dead by Daylight and was already present in the release version 1.0.0.
It has remained in use to this date, with the Status Effects and Proficiency Indicator Systems complementing its functionality since Patch 1.5.0, taking up functions that would have been ill-suited to the Player Effects System.

Use

Originally, the Player Effects System was reserved solely for the effects of Perks and Add-ons that influenced other Players, but has since expanded to encompass any effects affecting the Player and their abilities directly, whether those originate from the Player's own Unlockables or from those of other Players.

It is also used to indicate when a Killer's Power is affecting the Player in a way that cannot be displayed by any of the other information systems in Dead by Daylight.

Buff vs. Debuff

Before the introduction of the newer Status Effects and Proficiency Indicator Systems, effects which buffed the Player would use a turquoise colour, instead of yellow.
Since the Player Effects System is the oldest remaining system, it still uses the turquoise colour to indicate a buff.
Debuffs already used a red colour back then.

Icon Examples

Buff Debuff
IconStatusEffects buffPerk IconStatusEffects debuffPerk

Unlockables

The following Unlockables will display their icon using the Player Effects System:

Powers
Carter's SparkIconPowers cartersSparkIconPowers cartersSparkIconPowers cartersSpark Shows a debuff icon of Carter's Spark while a Survivor's interactions are inhibited from being hit by a Shock Therapy Attack.
Props / Interactables
Orange Glyphs Shows a debuff icon while the Killer suffers from its afflictions.


Survivor Activity HUD

SurvivorActivityHUD Screenshot01

First added with Patch 6.5.0, the Survivor Activity HUD displays the current interactions of Survivors to all other Survivors as a small symbol next to their HUD Icon.
In case of some crucial interactions such as Dying State Recovery and Generator Repair Progression, the current Progression of the interaction is displayed as well as a yellow circle surrounding the icon that is filling itself.

It also modified the mechanic of displaying when a Survivor is being chased by the Killer, which was formerly exclusive to the Obsession, so that it is now used on all Survivors.
The modified system still marks the Obsession with a long pair of Entity-claws framing their Survivor HUD Icon, but now uses a shorter pair of Entity-claws to indicate which Survivor is currently being chased.

The following interactions are currently displayed on the Survivor Activity HUD:

Survivor HUD Icons

IconHelp healthy

The Survivor HUD Icons represent each Survivor in the Trial and the current state they are in or experiencing.
This includes their current Health State, whether or not they are being carried, being hooked, having escaped, being sacrificed, being killed, or being dead.
It also includes over-/underlays with special interactions with Killer Powers.

Up to the Status HUD Rework in Patch 4.5.2, Survivors were represented with a generic icon in the Status HUD instead of their Character portrait.
Patch 5.0.0 further included separate icons for Legendary Outfits.

Change Log

Patch 1.5.0

  • Quality of Life: added the Status Effects and Proficiency Indicators systems to the Status HUD, which allow the game to better convey to Players when outside effects are affecting them and of which type the effects are.

Patch 2.5.0

  • Change: timers no longer stack or automatically reset; the longest timer will prevail and shorter ones are ignored.
    • If the new Timer is the higher one, the previous timer is discarded and the Status Effect icon will visually reset to 100 %.
    • If the new Timer is the lower one, the new timer is discarded and the Status Effect icon will remain at its current progression.

Patch 3.4.0

  • Killer Quality of Life: the red de-buff icon applied by Perks no longer appears on the Survivors' HUD until the debuff is active.

Patch 4.5.0

  • Change: the Deep Wound timer is now 20 seconds across the board.

Patch 5.7.0

  • Killer Buff: added a new effect to Haemorrhage, which now causes partial Healing progression to regress over time.

Patch 6.1.0

  • Survivor Nerf: Endurance is no longer able to shield a Survivor from going down while suffering from Deep Wound at the same time.
    • This change was motivated by wishing to prevent Survivors from being able to avoid more than just one hit from the Killer through stacking Endurance.

Patch 6.5.0

  • Survivor Buff: added the Survivor Activity HUD system to the Status HUD, which displays a Survivor's current interaction to all other Survivors.
  • Survivor Quality of Life: added an icon to display when a Survivor is being carried.
