Dead by Daylight features over 24 Survivors and 22 Killers, each coming with its own unique teachable Perks. Some Perks like Decisive Strike, Self Care, or Monitor & Abuse are a few great Perks out of the 164 in the game. However, most of them have to be unlocked in the Bloodweb, which costs lots of Bloodpoints. So, what’s the fastest way to farm huge Bloodpoints?
Playing the Killer will reward the player with more Bloodpoints, compared to playing the Survivor role, because Killers have access to multiple Bloodpoint Perks such as Distressing or Barbecue & Chili. Also, Bloodpoint rewards are easier to accomplish.
That said, Survivors can also earn a large number of Bloodpoints during a trial by using Perks such as We’re Gonna Live Forever. Another Perk that boosts Bloodpoint is Prove Thyself, granting 100% more Bloodpoints for coop actions.
Besides Perks and Offerings, completing challenges from The Archives also rewards the player with Bloodpoints and other in-game items. For instance, disturb 50 crows to earn 15.000 Bloodpoints. Some challenges reward you with 15-20.000 BP, but it varies between each challenge.
Note: Keep in mind that Dead by Daylight has a fixed cap of 1 million Bloodpoints, so spend some of them before you go into the next Trial.
How To Farm Bloodpoints as Survivor in Dead by Daylight?
To get the most amount of Bloodpoints after the Trial ends, Survivors can equip specific Perks to boost Bloodpoint gaining and burn Offerings at the start of the Trial.
The best Survivor build for farming Bloodpoints contains No One Left Behind, Prove Thyself, and We’re Gonna Live Forever, combined with the Bloody Party Streamers Offering. Survivors can also use the Needle & Thread or Surgical Suture Add-Ons for an additional Bloodpoints boost.
Besides the Bloody Party Streamers, The Escape Cake, Fragrant Bog Laurel, Fragrant Crispleaf Amaranth, Fragrant Primrose Blossom, and Fragrant Sweet William Offerings are the best alternatives if you don’t have any Party Streamers left.
However, how many Bloodpoints you get during the Trial highly depends on how you play. If you get chased by the Killer, repair a few Generators, heal other Survivors, and escape through the Exit Gates or Hatch, you can get anything between 25.000 to +100.000 Bloodpoints in one game.
We’re Gonna Live Forever:
Your few friends deserve the best protection. When healing a dying Survivor, your Healing speed is increased by 100%. Gain a Token for performing any of the following actions:
- Perform a Safe Hook Rescue.
- Take a Protection Hit for an injured Survivor.
- Stun the Killer to rescue a carried Survivor.
- Blind the Killer to rescue a carried Survivor.
Gain a stackable 25% Bonus to all Bloodpoint gains up to a maximum of several percent.
For each Survivor working on a Generator within 4 meters, gain a stackable 15% Repair speed bonus up to a maximum of 45%.
- This effect is also applied to all other Survivors within range.
- Gain 50/75/100% more Bloodpoints for cooperative Actions.
Prove Thyself does not stack with other instances of itself.
On the other hand, if you get sacrificed with your first hook, you’ll only get a few thousand BP if best. That said, the best time to farm massive amounts of Bloodpoints fast in DBD is when a double Bloodpoints event goes live on the servers.
Usually, Killers are more likely not to camp the hooked Survivor so they can be saved, resulting in more hooks in total.

How To Farm Bloodpoints as Killer in Dead by Daylight?
As mentioned at the start, playing the Killer rewards the player generally with more Bloodpoints than playing a Survivor. But, if the game goes pretty bad, the Killer gets less BP at the end.
The best Perk builds to farm Bloodpoints as Killer contains Barbecue & Chili, Distressing, Thrill of the Hunt, and another Perk to slow down Generator progression. Add-Ons such as Scratched Mirror or Scarred Hand can be equipped to gain bonus Bloodpoints for Score Events.
Note: The Doctor is considered one of the best Killers to farm large amounts of Bloodpoints because his power makes it very easy to find Survivors. Plus, it works fantastic with Distressing, making it easy to reach the max cap for Deviousness points.
Of course, to get the most BP within a Trial, you should use the Bloody Party Streamers Offering or anything else that gives you bonus Bloodpoints. The best alternatives to Bloody Streamers are the Ardent Tanager Wreath, Ardent Raven Wreath, Ardent Spotted Owl Wreath, and Ardent Shrike Wreath Offering.
Barbecue & Chilli:
A deep bond with The Entity unlocks potential in one’s Aura-reading ability. After hooking a Survivor, all other Survivors’ Auras are revealed to you for 4 seconds when they are farther than 40 meters from the hook.
Each Time a Survivor is hooked for the first time, gain a 25% stackable bonus to all Bloodpoint gains up to a maximum of 50/75/100%.
Your horrifying emanation strikes at a supernaturally long distance. Your Terror Radius is increased by 22/24/26%.
Gain 100% more Bloodpoints for actions in the Deviousness Category.
Hex: Thrill of the Hunt:
A Hex rooting its power on hope. The false hope of Survivors fills you with excitement and strengthens your totems.
For each Dull Totem and Hex Totem remaining on the Map gain a Token.
- Gain 10 % more Bloodpoints for actions in the Hunter Category for each Token.
- Survivors’ cleansing speed is reduced by 4/5/6 % for each Token.
- Gain a notification when someone starts working on a Hex Totem.
Not only does the Killer make a difference on how many BP you can get within a Trial, but how you play also has a large impact. If you camp a hooked Survivor instead of searching the next one and kicking Generators, you will miss out on a lot of Bloodpoints.
Chasing Survivors gives lots of BP, especially if you use the Killers’ power to put them into the Dying State.

How many Bloodpoints do I need to get to Level 50?
Each Killer and Survivor has a max level of 50 before a character can unlock the prestige. Currently, Survivors and Killers can reach Prestige III level 50, so 150 character levels.
To get to level 50 with a Killer or Survivor, the player has to spend about 1.6 million Bloodpoints in the Bloodweb. To get to Prestige III level 50, the player has to spend approximately 7 million Bloodpoints.
That said, these numbers can vary. If you ignore all expensive items in the Bloodweb, it is possible to save a decent amount of BP, which can be used to reach a higher level.
1. What is the maximum number of points I can hold at a time?
The cap for Bloodpoints in Dead by Daylight is 2,000,000 Bloodpoints for Bloodpoints gained in a Trial. But points gained through outside sources (promotional codes, log-in rewards) are not calculated in the cap, so you can have more than 2,000,000. But once you reach this cap, you will not be able to earn any more Bloodpoints until you spend some in the Bloodweb.
2. Are there any events that can help me earn Bloodpoints faster?
Yes, Dead by Daylight often holds double Bloodpoints events, where the amount of Bloodpoints earned from trials is doubled. These events usually happen during special occasions, such as anniversaries or holidays.
3. Can I earn points even if I am not playing as a Killer or Survivor?
No, you can only earn Bloodpoints by playing as a Killer or Survivor in trials. Completing certain actions during the trials earns you these points.
4. Are the Perks that increase points gain unique to each character or can they be used by any character?
Each Killer or Survivor has unique teachable Perks that can be unlocked as they level up. Once these Perks have been unlocked, they can then appear in the Bloodweb of other characters.
5. Are there any penalties for camping as a Killer?
While there are no specific penalties for camping as a Killer, it is generally discouraged as it can lead to less enjoyable gameplay for Survivors. Additionally, camping can actually lead to fewer Bloodpoints earned, as it limits the Killer’s opportunity to engage in chases and hook multiple Survivors.
