Dead by Daylight: Faster generator repair - best builds Dead by Daylight guide, tips

On this page of the DBD guide you will find the best builds for quick generator repair. The list of perks you will use will include Fast Track.

Last update: 22 September 2022

This DBD guide page describes the most effective builds to help survivors quickly repair generators. From this page, you will learn what perks you need to purchase.

These builds focus on repairing the generators as fast as possible (so called gen rush). This will make the whole game proceed faster, and the killer will have less time to chase survivors.

Safe repair

In the game, many perks accelerate the progress of generator repair. If you focus on fixing generators alone, then the optimal combination of perks will be:

  1. Fast Track - if another survivor is hooked, you will receive 1,2, or 3 Tokens depending on the perk's level. In addition, they accumulate with each victim. When you hit a Great Skill Check, each of the Tokens collected will translate into 1% of generator repair progress. This perk belongs to Yun-Jin Lee.
  2. Overzealous - if you cleanse a Totem, you get a 6/7/8% increase in repair speed of the generators. The effect dubles for Hex Totems. This effect lasts until you take damage. This perk belongs to Haddie Kaur.
  3. Hyperfocus - a Great Skill Check grants a Token (you can have a maximum of 6). For each Token, Skill Check Rotation speed and the chance of triggering a Skill Check increase by 4%. At the same time, hitting another Great Skill Check gives you a 10/20/30% increase to the base Skill Check Bonus value. This perk belongs to Rebecca Chambers.
  4. Stake Out - every 15s spent within the killer's the Terror Radius gives you 1 Token (maximum you can have 2/3/4 of them). They make every Good Skill Check hit considered Great and grant a 1% bonus to generator repair speed.

With this particular combination of perks, the synergy of Hyperfocus and Stake Out plays a major role. This is because one first requires hitting Great Skill Checks, while the other allows you to hit them very easily. However, the circumstances can become complicated when you deal with Undetectable killers. If they have this status imposed, their terror range is cloaked, so the Stake Out is unable to charge.

However, the most unpredictable perk in this list is the Fast Track - Dead by Daylight: Faster generator repair - best builds - Survivors - Dead by Daylight Guide

However, the most unpredictable perk in this list is the Fast Track. How many times you'll be able to use it depends on how often your companions get hooked.

If you prefer to repair the generators in a group, then one change have to be made in the build described above. Choose Prove Thyself instead of Stake Out. This perk makes it so that anyone repairing a generator within 4 meters of you will receive a 15% bonus to progression speed.

Risky repairs

The build described above is a safer option that does not require taking too much risk. However, if you are confident in your skills then you can use the following build:

  1. Overzealous - perk described above;
  2. Fast Track - perk described above;
  3. Prove Thyself - any Survivor within 4 meters of you receives a 15% bonus to progression speed.
  4. Resilience - when you are injured, the speed of actions like repairing, healing, cleansing Totems, or opening gates increases to 3/6/9%.

In this case, you must first take damage and then cleanse a Totem to gain the bonus from Overzealous. You have to repair generators in this state. So if you are detected, do everything to avoid being hit. You can reduce the risk to some extent. If you use the Med-kit, you can heal up to 99% and repair in this state. As soon as a killer appears, you complete the process of restoring health. However, this method will not work if the bleeding effect is imposed on you.
