I started playing Dead by Daylight for the first time in a while but when I went to play Freddy I noticed that a lot had changed. I couldn't find any patch notes explaining the update so does anyone know what has changed with Freddy and how to use his abilities?

    His rework, with the dream snares and all of that.

DbD's recent patch notes should have popped up when you logged in following an update.

But, if you really want me to repeat the 3.1.0 patch notes here:

Freddy's new ability set includes:

Gameplay and Power changes

  • Microsleep
    • Awake Survivors will see The Nightmare within 16 meters, The Nightmare will be intermittent from 16 meters to 32 meters, and while awake Survivors will hear The Nightmare emit a Terror Radius of 32 meters.
  • Falling Asleep
    • Survivors fall asleep passively over 60 seconds. Once asleep survivors see The Nightmare and hear The Nightmare emit a 2D 32 meter Lullaby instead of a Terror Radius. Once asleep Survivors will see the aura of an Alarm Clock on a dresser.
  • Waking Up
    • An awake Survivor can wake up a sleeping Survivor.
    • Survivors can wake up by failing skill checks.
      • ...unless the Red Paint Brush addon is used
    • Survivors can wake up by going to and removing an Alarm Clock off a dresser.
    • It takes progressively longer for an alarm clock or another survivor to wake up a survivor each time they are woken up this way. This was omitted from the official patch notes.

Dream abilities

  • Dream Snares
    • Dream Snares slow and reveal a Survivors location.
    • Only effective and visible towards Sleeping Survivors.
    • Killers start with 8 tokens, each Snare costs 1 token to place. Only 8 traps can be placed at one time.
    • Equipping the Garden Rake, Prototype Claws, or Paint Thinner addons replaces your 8 Dream Snares with 10 Dream Pallets.
  • Dream Projection
    • Channel the ability to create a husk of The Nightmare at the targeted generator, complete the channel to take the position of the husk.
      • If the Class Photo addon is equipped, all generators start spewing blood instead of a husk appearing
    • Can be cancelled.
      • ...unless you used the Class Photo addon
    • For each sleeping Survivor gain a 15% cool down reduction on Dream Projection.
