Why does Billy need a nerf?

lewislewis Member Posts: 63

I just don’t get the reasoning for the billy nerfs. “He has can use his chainsaw anytime he wants”, “he can pressure the other side of the map too quick”, “his add ons are busted”.

Does any of this even matter if you’re better than the player using hillbilly? So he can use his chainsaw anytime he wants, so what? If you’re caught out of position that’s on you. If you understand the game you’ll know where and how to loop a billy, you’ll know all the billy mind games like curving, chainsaw feathering or fake pallet breaking it just sounds to me like you just need practice against hillbilly with all these complaints.

”he can pressure the other side of the map too quick” isn’t that a good thing? You know what isn’t fun? Hard camping killers. I want killers on the other side of the map If me or my teammate is hooked. If the billy comes to you and you’re good at looping what does it matter? If you’re better than the billy what does it matter? He can’t catch you, you’re teammate should be saved and he’s lost pressure.

“his add ons are busted” aren’t a lot of killers add ons ridiculous? You have strong add ons on almost (what should be every) killer like mint rag, shackles on Hag, exhaustion add ons on clown, huntress, mori add on Myers, quick stalk ghost face, aura plague, the two honing stone add ons for trapper. It makes hillbilly’s add ons look quite tame in my opinion, “insta down saw” wow! Shouldn’t killers have add ons that increase their power?

for me billy is the funnest killer to go against, any killer who is better than you, or makes the right read should beat you (but even then they still might lose), there is so much complaining about him, yes he is a strong killer, but that what makes him fun to go against. Juking a billy is exhilarating compared to other killers. The point is he shouldn’t be a problem if you don’t make mistakes, mistakes are on you not on billy boy!

p.s Billy is one of my weakest killers I play as, I’m a better trapper, huntress.

TL;DR: Billy is no problem if you’re better than the player behind him and you don’t make mistakes

    I don't play Billy too much either but I never thought he need changing. Anyway it's the next thing Bhvr will change regardless of what anybody says.

    Imagine telling survivors to get good and actually learn the game.

    Why would they do that when they have the devs to nerf everything for them?

    Imo because he can 1 shot without a long build up and has high mobility.

    Every other 1 shot killer even ones without high mobility have a build up.

    Ghostface and Myers have to stalk you. Oni has to injure you and collect blood.

    Ghostface and Myers also can't fly around the map at high speeds. Oni can but slower with better turning but at the cost of build up and a time limit.

    Billy imo needs a charge or a reload. Then rework leatherface entirely.

    “Billy is perfectly balanced like all things should be.”

    If you’re out of position or he’s outplayed you that’s a problem, if you’re at a loop it doesn’t matter he has to try and mindgame you or take a m1 imo

  • lewislewis Member Posts: 63

    imo yes he is, survivor main no I’m red rank both sides more 90% killer maybe play billy 1 out 40

    Was there a dev stream I missed about him being the next killer to be nerfed?

  • BBQnDemogorgonBBQnDemogorgon Member Posts: 3,592

    No it's just a community debate that's been popping up. We know he has an update coming though since his add-on rarities aren't up to date.

    Same with LF and Huntress

    Billy is the most balanced killer imo. He should be the blueprint. Even with his strongest addons played by idk zubatlel I don't see the issue. Because if zubatlel would face a 4 men swf containing players like Ussilys he would struggle 100%!

    Cause he has insane mobility + 1-shot, now i don't see them buffing 15 other killers to his level, so he needs to get in line with others.

  • FluorescentLemonFluorescentLemon Member Posts: 257

    He is unbalanced because Survivors decree it

    He will be nerfed because Survivors demand it.

  • Helevetin_nopeeHelevetin_nopee Member Posts: 408

    "Insane mobility and 1 shot kill" Just like red rank SWFs have the ability to go through the gens insanely fast.

    When will survivors learn that it's a 4v1, it's not about a single survivor pulling the team and making the game a success. Killers are supposed to have an advantage against survivors to be able to complete their task because there isn't four killers in a match, there are four survivors. If your ego can't f*cking handle having teammates, go play something else then

    Bad players with whiny entitled attitudes are demanding Billy nerfs. Not a single person has a logical reason as to why Billy needs to be nerfed.
