If survivors had roles to play

If survivors had specific roles (character related or not), which would you be?

I think the roles are pretty self explanatory (hopefully) but free to interpretation. Tell us what perks and items you want associated with your role. Or which character best suits your role.

And if you're a straight up killer then feel free to pick a survivor role or discuss a killer role you'd like :)

    It's between Medic, Sneaky Snek and All-Rounder for me but I've gone with The Medic. The unlockable perks would mainly be health perks but I'd want:

    We'll Make it


    Inner Strength

    And then probably a random perk of BT.

    My Medkits would be superior to other roles or characters which I can keep or give to other players.

    My main aim is to help my fellow survivors and my character would probably be Claudette but I'd prefer not to be forced to use specific characters.

    I'd be the collector if I'm collecting bones from totems. I'm always the guy that makes sure there's no totems left on the map when the last gen pops

    This was hard, because when I'm playing and there is an injured Survivor I'm trying to protect them by taking a hit and bait the Killer on me most of the time, I also heal a lot.

    Another thing, I like to sneaky snek when the Killer is around.

    I tend to stick to myself until something comes up or if someone direly needs me.

    If the traitor was a real role, I think that would be hilarious!

    The Mechanic I always find gens to do and help get them done otherwise it's sneaky snek to avoid killers

    Or “The Rescuer” with a Babysitter and Borrowed Time combi, plus maybe something that gives you a chance at getting away after becoming the target, like Dance With Me combined with Quick and Quiet or Lithe.

    The All-Rounder

    Stealth - Iron Will

    Stealth + Pre-Chase - Spine Chill - Lets me get to a better position in the pre-chase than I would be able to without it, especially against stealthy killers or TR reduction perks.

    Teamwork + Information - Kindred

    Medic - We'll Live Forever - I'll get you off the ground super speed and I'll unhook you for the sake of BP, although I won't farm since I won't get my stacks that way.

    Alternate perks - We'll Make It, Unbreakable, Pharmacy, Inner Strength

    Also pretty much bait, but I'll take a hit for you anytime to get my stacks ;)

    Or maybe the Medic or the Sneak.

    Then again, right now I'm playing a game where I'm grinding for items I don't necessarily even need because I'm a hoarder, so whether I mean to or not I'll probably fall into the Collector role. "What, you need half a medkit to craft a tourniquet? I dunno, man, I only have thirty of these, not sure I can spare one for your little scratch." (said as bones stick every which way out of Dwight's arm)

    I am the bait because the killer spawns 2m from me at all times

    i think the idea of Laurie as the "sole survivor" who does not give a ######### about the team is really selfish and the perk get reworked.

    As I've said before, Santa Dwight is the best choice in situations like this.

    The build would be Plunderer's Instinct, Appraisal, Ace in the Hole, & Bond. The entire point of this build is to cheer survivors up and bring them presents. If I was getting placed in a trial over and over again just to probably end up dying, I'd be irritated too.

    With this being said, if you don't have Dwight-in-a-Box or Mr. Elf, you aren't a true Santa Dwight. Fully commit to the role!

    I'll do whatever my team needs me to do.

    The Bait

    I love making distractions for my teammates. I've gotten pretty decent at it. Deception is a fun new perk for doing this. As long as they make good use of the time they've been given.

    Medic/Healer for the win as Claudette. Perks probably be Botany Knowledge, We'll Make It, Autodidact, and maybe Solidarity (but that perk can be changed out for others like We're Gonna Live Forever or Self Care or Felix's survivor version of Thanatophobia perk) . But honestly my role right now is just do gens with teammates cause prove thyself :)
