The Killers in Dead by Daylight have a variety of abilities that make them feel distinct from one another. One of the most interesting Killers is The Plague, which allows Survivors to infect and almost kill them without touching them. This guide explains how to approach a Survivor who is infected with the maximum level of infection as The Plague, and how to use it. It also explains how the infection mechanic works, so you can understand it.
How to Survivors who are affected by the highest level of infection as the Plague
To defeat a Survivor who is affected by the maximum infection, you need to begin spewing some glaring green vomit. Vile Purge is a scaled attack that doesn''t treat damage but also applies to Survivors. If you see Survivors twice, you will need to spray them with a red blotchy background. Then, you can hook them or kill them.
How to infect Survivors as The Plague
The Plague will always be Vile Purge, a ranged vomit attack that splinters liquid at Survivors, infecting them. This technique may be applied to any interactable objects, such as generators, gate controls, and chests. Survivors will pick up the infection when they touch the objects, thus it may build up throughout the day.
Both methods are feasible in a Trial, but weve found that it''s best to go with the aggressive or passive approach only, because they do not affect people. For example, you can assign passive benefits that increase the infection rate from infected objects, but they eliminate the power of The Plagues to infect Survivors directly. Experiment with your loadouts until you find something that works for you.
