Toolboxes are a type of Item IconHelp items.png the Survivors IconHelpLoading survivor.png can use in Dead by Daylight IconHelp DBDlogo.png.


Overview[]

Toolboxes have two main uses: repairing Generators IconHelpLoading generators.png faster and sabotaging Hooks IconHelpLoading hook.png (6 Charges).

Not all Toolboxes are suited for both aforementioned uses, as some are specialised for just one of them and perform poorly when executing the other.

The table below assumes just a single Survivor repairing a Generator at the default speed of 1 c/s without succeeding any Great Skill Checks nor failing any, making the Generator Repair take 90 seconds.
Icon Toolbox Repair speed bonus Individual Repair speed Toolbox Repair progress Toolbox Repair duration* Remaining Generator Charges Remaining Repair time Total Repair time* Seconds shaved off
FulliconItems worn-outTools.png Worn-Out Tools +50 % 1.5 c/s 16 Charges ~10.67 seconds 74 Charges 74 seconds ~84.67 seconds ~5.33 seconds

*Toolboxes consume their Charges at the same rate as their individual Repair speed, as these are the Charges that are being applied to the Generator Repair progress.
*The total Repair time assumes a complete Solo Repair, first using up the Toolbox Charges, then repairing the remainder of the Generator, without succeeding Great Skill Checks.
