The Legion is one of the few killers in Dead by Daylight that requires strategy, patience, and cunning. Most Killers allow you to ignore many abilities and attack a Survivor directly, but the Legion has a delayed attack that is much better at taking them down. This guide explains how to apply the Deep Wound effect to Survivors with The Legion so you can watch the Survivors drop like flies.

How to apply the Deep Wound effect on The Legion?
To apply the Deep Wound effect with The Legion, you must hit Survivors while in Frenzy. The Legion can induce a frenzy state with the ranged attack button, but it only lasts about 10 seconds. Hitting a Survivor in this state with an attack inflicts the Deep Wound effect and prolongs the Frenzy, allowing you to hit more Survivors. After a short period of time without attacking anyone, the Frenzy state ends, but any Survivors hit will enter the Dying state if they don’t heal their Deep Wound soon.
In the Frenzy state, the Legion can see other Survivors by their heartbeat for a few seconds after landing a hit. This makes it easy to dash from one survivor to another, inflicting deep wounds along the way. This is the most effective way to play as The Legion as they are much slower when not in frenzy. Inflicting a deep wound and waiting for survivors to be dropped or hit again when you exit frenzy will let you hook more survivors than you would get if you were chasing them without frenzy.
We recommend using add-ons that extend the frenzy state or apply bonus effects to it if you want to play as The Legion. While it’s nice to be able to see generators and survivors under certain circumstances, the frenzy state ultimately gives you more sacrifices. Survivors don’t stand a chance if you keep up the pressure and use Frenzy at every opportunity. You should be able to complete any challenge that requires you to inflict Deep Wound within a single Trial if you focus on using The Legion this way.
