Wondering which Perks are in Dead by Daylight’s Shrine of Secrets this week and if you’ll be needing to spend your hard-earned Iridescent Shards? We’ve got everything you need to know for the week of May 18, 2022.

If you’re trying to unlock a teachable Perk in DBD to use on your best Survivor or Killer, playing through that particular character to unlock it on their Bloodweb can take quite a bit of time. Fortunately, though, The Shrine of Secrets is here to help you out in Dead by Daylight.

Each week, four random Teachable Perks will appear in the game’s Shrine, allowing you to part with your hard-earned Iridescent Shards in exchange for the convenience of not needing to play as the associated character to unlock it.


From which Perks are currently available, to how much they cost, and how to get Iridescent Shards or some extra Bloodpoints, here’s everything you need to know.

Dead by Daylight’s Shrine of Secrets has reset, so check out its new Perks for this week below.

Oppression When you damage a generator, up to 3 other random generators also begin regressing. If the affected generators are being repaired, any Survivors repairing them receive a difficult Skill Check.

What is the Shrine of Secrets in DBD?

Simply put, the Shrine of Secrets is a store that rotates its contents weekly, allowing players the chance to unlock a Teachable Perk from a particular Survivor without needing to unlock it on their Bloodweb. This is perfect for players who prefer to main one particular character.


For example, a Jeff Johansen main at Prestige 3 may want to unlock Nea Karlsson’s ‘Balanced Landing’ perk, but due to the time spent leveling him, might not want to put time into playing as Nea. While it’s likely quicker to level that character as the Shrine’s weekly contents are random, this gives you the chance to wait for it to appear in-store instead.

Teachable Perks, once unlocked in the Bloodweb, can then be used in another character’s loadout.

When does the Shrine of Secrets reset in Dead by Daylight?

The Shrine of Secrets resets weekly, every Wednesday at 12 AM GMT / 2 AM CEST, or Tuesday at 4 PM PT / 7 PM ET.

How to earn Bloodpoints through the Shrine of Secrets

While the Shrine of Secrets can be used to unlock Perks, it can also give you Bloodpoints, too. If you purchase a Perk that you’ve already unlocked, it’ll instead give you 150,00 Bloodpoints to go towards a character’s Bloodweb.
