Did you know you can earn up to 1.6 million Bloodpoints in Dead by Daylight? That’s right!
As one of the most enthralling and immersive horror games ever produced, Dead by Daylight has 50 levels, and getting stuck at a particular level can be quite frustrating. One way to level up faster is by earning as many Bloodpoints as possible. This way, you’ll be able to unlock new options and customize your character to make them more skillful and more efficient.
This article will show you how to get Bloodpoints fast and set yourself up nicely for more in-game achievements.
How to Get Bloodpoints as Killer in Dead by Daylight?
One of the easiest ways to rack up Bloodpoints is by playing Killer. This is because as Killer, you have more control over the Bloodweb, and the actions of other players don’t directly affect your score. This contrasts with playing Survivor, where points are awarded based on how good your teammates and the Killer are. As Killer, you can also influence the number of Bloodpoints earned by Survivors. For example, Survivors won’t earn any Altruism points if you don’t hook or hit them.
Let’s now jump right into it and look at the strategies that can get you Bloodpoints faster while in Killer mode.
1. Stick With One Fighter
Although trying out different fighters is always exciting, sticking primarily with one character can help you earn Bloodpoints faster. This is because all Killers grow more powerful as you level up, making them more efficient. In addition, it helps you to develop a deeper understanding of a character’s skillset, tactics, and unique abilities.
You’ll also learn the best ways to use the available perks that will allow you to get the most out of your character’s special powers. For example, the Executioner has strong skills but very poor mobility. However, his toolkit comes with specialized powers – Rites of Judgment – that put Survivors in a Tormented state, making them vulnerable to his hook. Learning how to use these powers can take time. Sticking with the character can help you perfect activating these powers and earn more Bloodpoints.
2. Don’t Be Too Quick to Kill
The secret to earning more Bloodpoints lies in slow, drawn-out torture, not a quick death. It’s all about harassing Survivors and making their life as difficult as possible. Instead of killing them immediately, keep them alive but hook them repeatedly. You can farm a ton of Bloodpoints by capturing Survivors and setting them free multiple times. Each of the first four chases will earn you 400 Bloodpoints, with all subsequent chases earning you 200 Bloodpoints.
3. Be Destructive
As a Killer, you want to ensure that Survivors have nowhere to hide and have as few resources as possible. Thus, you shouldn’t pass up an opportunity to destroy objects that can help them. That includes generators, vaults, and pallets. Destroying pallets, for example, not only farms you some Bloodpoints but also denies Survivors an opportunity to use them as obstacles.
4. Use the Killer’s Special Powers Regularly
One of the best things about Dead by Daylight is that each Killer has something unique to offer – from unique weapons, perks, or special Killer abilities that result in a distinctive play style. For example, The Trapper comes with the Bear Trap to immobilize Survivors. On the other hand, the Doctor’s Shock Therapy afflicts Survivors with Madness, resulting in erratic behavior that makes them easy to capture. And the best part? You earn some Bloodpoints every time you use a Killer’s special powers effectively.
As a Killer, therefore, your goal is to master all of your character’s special powers.
5. Always Finish Matches
There are several reasons why quitting a match is bad for your Bloodpoints tally. First, you give up some Bloodpoints that are preconditioned on finishing the match. Second, you won’t be able to engage in another match for a predetermined amount of time if you disconnect. This means you’ll lose an opportunity to increase your Bloodpoints. These penalties pile up as the number of disconnections increases.
Therefore, to max your Bloodpoints earnings, you should aim to finish every match, even if Survivors leave early.
6. Complete Your Daily Rituals
Dead by Daylight requires players – Killers and Survivors alike – to complete daily Rituals in exchange for Bloodpoints. However, these Rituals depend on the character picked. For example, The Hunt Ritual requires a Killer to chase a Survivor for at least three minutes in return for 30,000 Bloodpoints.
The most rewarding Ritual when playing Killer goes by the name Mors Ambitio and requires you to kill a Survivor with your bare hands. If you do so, you’re instantly awarded 60,000 points which you can spend on character or Bloodweb upgrades.
How to Get Bloodpoints as Survivor in Dead by Daylight
To max out your Bloodpoints while playing Survivor, here’s a list of things you need to do:
1. Aim for Excellent Team Etiquette
As Survivor, you’ll earn Bloodpoints whenever you complete a task. But with so many tasks to be completed, teamwork is essential. Matches can quickly tilt toward the Killer’s favor if Survivors fail to complete critical objectives in a timely fashion. To earn more Bloodpoints as a group:
- Try to rescue other Survivors when they get hooked
- Even when being chased, try to linger around hooked Survivors
- Take protection hits to rescue fellow Survivors
- Heal the other Survivors whenever you can
2. Try to Stay Alive Throughout the Match
You’ll earn Bloodpoints for as long as you remain alive throughout the match. Escaping the trail alone earns you a cool 5,000 Bloodpoints. This begs the question: “How do I ensure that I remain alive?”
A good strategy is to occasionally find a hiding spot close to the Killer and stay there. If you’re on the run, make sure not to get cornered or trapped in an area where it’s easy for your Killer to chase after you because they’ll pick up speed and catch up with little difficulty. Find vantage points if possible but never do this while running as that will only drain your stamina faster than necessary. You also want to have as many tools at hand, so stock up whenever you get the chance. You should never pass up a chance to grab chests around the map.
3. Stay on Objectives
It’s important to remain focused on key objectives even when the Killer seemingly has the upper hand during the trial. You may have lost one or more Survivors already, or you may be against a Killer more skilled and more efficient, but you should not lose track of your objectives. Even when surviving to the end of the trial appears almost impossible, keep juggling between unlocking the gate, cleansing totems, repairing generators, and lending fellow Survivors a hand whenever an opportunity presents itself.
Achieving these objectives is rewarded with varying amounts of Bloodpoints depending on the level of complexity of the task.
4. Put Your Skills Into Use
While Killers come with special powers, Survivors boast an array of skills that can keep them alive to the end of the trial when used effectively and efficiently. Using these skills effectively also earns you valuable Bloodpoints that can be redeemed for an enhanced Bloodweb, better health, new supplies, and more.
You also earn generous amounts of Bloodpoints when you land good Skill Checks when repairing generators.
5. Complete Daily Rituals
As mentioned previously, Dead by Daylight features daily rituals which reward Survivors with Bloodpoints on completion. For example, the Rite of Ruin – where you’re required to destroy four full hooks – earns you 30,000 Bloodpoints. On the other hand, the Savior Ritual farms you a cool 35,000 Bloodpoints if you rescue three Survivors from the hook.
6. Keep the Killer Engaged
Frequent interactions with the Killer earn you Bloodpoints throughout the trial, but you need to ensure that they don’t kill you. For example, you can challenge the Killer to a chase around the map. If you’re able to evade capture, you’re awarded 400 points. A Killer Stun, on the other hand, earns you 1,000 Bloodpoints instantly.
7. Play David King
David King is one of the most recommended Survivor characters in Dead by Daylight. He comes with a unique perk called “We’re Gonna Live,” which increases Bloodpoint collection up to 25%. You can use the perk up to four times during a trial. The perk is also stackable and “teachable” once you hit level 30, making it purchasable on other characters’ Bloodwebs. At that point, you can switch to other characters if you so wish.
Rack Up Points and Level Up at a Terrific Rate in Your Favorite Horror Game
Dead by Daylight is not for the faint-hearted. It’s a cooperative horror game, so you need to work with other players to escape a dark and twisted world alive when playing Survivor. To accumulate bloodpoints faster when playing Killer, you need to make the most of your character’s special powers. Also, be sure to keep an eye out for items that might give you more Bloodpoints, such as keys or gas cans.
