Best Demogorgon builds in DBD

It's undeniable that the best perk for Demogorgon is Save the Best for Last. It helps you get the most out of this killer, and you get to win most of your game. However, it can get tricky with so many other perks, which is why below I have put the best builds for Demogorgon, and you can try them to see which one works for you.

Winning Demogorgon build

  • Save The Best for Last
  • Scourge Hook: Pain Resonance
  • Corrupt Intervention
  • Hex: Ruin

As the name suggests, this build will help you win as many matches as possible. First, you have the Save the Best for Last perk to help you apply pressure by building attack speed, and then Scourge Hook: Pain Resonance to destroy the progressed generator. 

Furthermore, Corrupt Intervention can help you by preventing survivors from wandering afar. Lastly, you apply even more pressure by passively regressing generator progress with Hex: Ruin. All in all, this build will help you go all out while cornering the survivors and with your portal ability.

Defensive Demogorgon build

  • Save The Best for Last
  • Deadlock
  • Corrupt Intervention
  • No Way Out

In this build, Save The Best for Last and Corrupt Intervention work together at the start to help you apply pressure from the get-go with attack speed and blocking farther generators. Then you have Deadlock, which gives you some time to go offensive as soon as survivors repair a generator by blocking the most progressed generator. 

After that, we come to No Way Out to help you get more time at the end by increasing the time needed to open the exit gate based on how many survivors you hooked. This build applies pressure, but remain cautious to help you stay in the game at all stages. 

Aggressive Demogorgon build

  • Save The Best for Last
  • Scourge Hook: Pain Resonance
  • Corrupt Intervention
  • Barbecue & Chili

If you want to go all out with Demogorgon, this build is the perfect option for you. It's exactly like the winning build but swaps Hex: Ruin with Barbecue & Chilli, changing the whole gameplay. Like the other builds, you have to Save The Best for Last to apply pressure with fast attacks and Corrupt Intervention to keep survivors close.

Where this build differs is with its synergy of Scourge Hook: Pain Resonance and Barbecue & Chilli, which blast the most progressed generator and tell nearby survivors' locations. This works well with the portal ability of Demogorgon to capitalize on survivors at once. 

All-out attack Demogorgon build

  • Save The Best for Last
  • Mad Grit
  • Agitation
  • Iron Grasp

The all-out attack build moves away from the generator approach and focuses on the more traditional hunt. In this build, Iron Grasp, Mad Grit, and Agitation all make it nearly impossible for held survivors to escape, and you can attack others while at it. 

On top of these, you have to Save The Best for Last, which helps you multiply your normal attack speed and hit the other survivors that are ganging up on you to release the captured survivors. This build is powerful, but you need skills and the ability to chase and hit survivors for it to work.
