Dead by Daylight is a multiplayer survival horror game. When you play as a survivor, your character’s playstyle may be affected by special abilities called perks. You can choose them before you start a match. Some of these perks may be used in specific strategies, and today we are going to tell you about one of these. This guide will explain to you how to use Sprint Burst effectively in Dead by Daylight.
Sprint Burst in Dead by Daylight
Sprint Burst in Dead by Daylight is a perk that belongs to a character named Meg Thomas. It makes you move faster by increasing your sprint’s speed by 150% when you start to run. The effect lasts for 3 seconds and then applies the Exhausted status for 60/50/40 seconds. This debuff won’t let you use Sprint Burst and some other perks for the second time.
How to Use Sprint Burst Effectively
Sprint Burst in Dead by Daylight is one of the perks that increase your speed. However, it also applies the Exhausted debuff on your character, which prevents you from using similar abilities until the end of this effect. So, you can’t use all perks that increase your speed—you have to choose one of them. Sprint Burst has a couple of advantages as you can control it and use it when you really need to run away.
In the beginning, Sprint Burst seems to be awkward as it activates upon the start of the sprint. However, you can abuse the Exhausted debuff. This effect lasts for 40 seconds for 3 tier Sprint Burst, but it stops to recover when you use sprint. So, you can wait until your Exhausted recovery meter is filled at 99% and then start the sprint. When you need to use an additional speed buff, you can make a little pause and let this 1% of the bar recover. That is how you control this buff and make its effect appear only when you need it.
