Yun-Jin Lee is the next survivor to come Dead by the light of day, and we can finally take a look at its benefits in PTB 4.6.0. If you want to learn more about the new Killer the Trickster, check out my guide to its benefits.
Yun-Jin Lee’s three unique perks are Fast Track, Smash Hit, and Self-Preservation. Let’s see how you can take advantage of it.
Fast Track is the first new benefit Yun-Jin Lee brings to Death by the light of day. The teachable version of Fast Track will appear on his Bloodweb at level 30. Here’s how Fast Track works:
“Each time another Survivor is addicted, you gain 1/2/3 token (s). You consume all tokens after a high skill check on a generator. Each token consumed grants a 1% progression bonus for Large Skill Checks when repairing generators. “
Fast Track is another perk Survivors can use to complete Generators faster in a meta where many Slayers are performing Generator Slow Perks. Addicted survivors during a match are inevitable, at least if you’re in the middle to high ranks, so Fast Track takes advantage of a situation that is inevitable.
Fast Track tokens have no cap, so you can choose to wait until you have more than 9 tokens for a lot of progress. However, it doesn’t matter if you save your tokens or use them immediately, as they all give the same progression. It is up to the survivors to decide when to put this stored progression into the generator. I recommend using tokens right away, unless the generator you’re on is about to come out.
One perk that goes extremely well with Fast Track is the Detective Tapp Stake Out perk: “For every 15 seconds that you are within the slayer’s terror radius and are not in pursuit, you gain a token up to a maximum of 2/3/4 tokens.” When Stake Out has at least 1 token, good skill checks are considered exceptional skill checks, consume 1 token and grant an additional 1% progress bonus. “
With Stake Out, you don’t have to focus on skill testing. You can just take skill checks normally and have them count as exceptional skill checks. The extra 1% progression also combines perfectly with the bonuses you get from Fast Track.
If you don’t have access to Stake Out, you can use the This is Not Happening perk: “Repair, Heal, and Sabotage skill check hit areas are 10/20/30% greater when injured. “ Unlike Stake Out, this is a general perk available to all Survivors.
Yun-Jin Lee’s next perk is Smash Hit. The teachable version of this perk appears on his blood web at level 35. Here’s how Smash Hit works:
“After stunning the Killer with a paddle, sprint at 150% of your normal running speed for 3 seconds. Causes the Exhausted status effect for 60/50/40 seconds. This perk cannot be used while it is exhausted. “
This is the first sprint advantage we have had in a long time and it is a nice reward for stunning the Killer. However, I wouldn’t use this perk on Sprint Burst or Lithe. Even Dead Hard is better than Smash Hit. Indeed, stunning the Killer with a paddle is incredibly risky and difficult to do. Many killers have gotten pretty good at avoiding paddle stuns by stopping their chase for a split second before the survivor lets go of the paddle.
Along with that, there are plenty of killers in the game that can completely counter the paddles. This includes the new killer, the Trickster, who can wait for the Survivor to throw the paddle, then strike the Survivor with knives. Other killers who can counter the Pallets are the Huntress, Pyramid Head, Nurse, Freddy, Hag, Trapper, Cannibal, Hillbilly, Plague, and the Spirit. With so many killers that can counter the paddles, Smash Hit isn’t a good perk to use.
Yun-Jin Lee’s final benefit is self-preservation. The teachable version of this perk appears on his blood web at level 40. Here’s how self-preservation works.
“Anytime another Survivor within 12 yards of you is hit by a Basic Attack or Special Attack, Self-Preserve activates. Your scratch marks are masked for 6/8/10 seconds. “
Self-preservation is an interesting benefit that can be used for stealth builds and even rescue builds. It might even be useful if a Survivor takes a hit for you during the chase, leaving you 10 seconds where the killer can’t follow your scratch marks. Remember, Killers are also careful with sound, so try to put some distance between you and the Killer. Don’t try to sneak around them.
This perk can have strong uses in hook saves as well, especially if a lot of survivors are around the hook. With so many overlapping scratch marks, the Killer won’t notice he can’t find yours. Whether you are the survivor on the hook and be saved, or the one making the save. Self-preservation will hide your scratch marks here, allowing for a sneaky getaway. The only trick is to get out of the Killer’s sights.
Another situation where this advantage can be good is if the killer is hitting. When a survivor is shot near you, just start running towards the slug that is furthest from the killer or closest to you. Having no scratch marks will make it difficult for the killer to figure out what you are doing.
Self-preservation can be combined with other benefits or be used on its own. For stealth build you can use Urban Evasion and Iron Will. Urban Evasion is one of the advantages of Nea: “Your movement speed while crouching is increased by 90/95/100%. “ Iron Will is one of Jake’s unique advantages: “Pain grunts from injuries are reduced by 50/75/100%.”
If you want to get a feel for how self-preservation works, you can equip Fixated, one of Nancy’s unique perks: “you can see your own scratch marks anytime and walk 10/15/20% faster. ” To see what the perk effects look like in the game, check out my video below!
That’s all you need to know about Yun-Jin Lee in Dead by daylight. Overall, these new perks give Survivors more options, but don’t change the game dramatically.
Let me know if you think these perks will be useful, or which versions you would like to try with them. Thanks for reading and stay tuned for more. Death by the light of day guides.
