What's the most overpowered killer?

Spirit. She doesn't take any skill to play. Nurse at least takes hours on hours of practice, Spirit can be picked up by a 3 legged dog and still manage a 4k.

  • Remember, this is an opinion.
  • Tell me what killer you believe is most overpowered and why.
  • I understand killers as a whole are at a disadvantage, but there are many killer mechanics that are overpowered, tell me your opinion.

    Nurse is easily the strongest. Spirit may be good, even to those who aren't as good as her, but a great Nurse can shut down a match far quicker than a Spirit can ever wish to. I'm personally not good at either, but I'd rather play against an average Spirit than a great Nurse.

    PC: Nurse and Billy

    XBOX: Spirit and Freddy

    PS4: Spirit and Freddy

    Honestly I think it is Freddy when you factor in a couple things. He has amazing map pressure, can cut off loops, and is EXTREMELY easy to play. Spirit and nurse are equally as powerful in my opinion but have a much larger skill gap imo.

    Well apparently Freddy is getting the most kills according to dev stats.....

    Freddy is Balanced

    Nurse is Balanced

    Spirit is Balanced

    Hillbilly why are people even talking about him is Balanced

    The only reason that people are not tearing Hag apart is because not enough people play her that she dodges statistic's, but I know of the godly builds you can do on her that ensures the 4k every game - no matter the skill of the survivors.

    Deletes stealth. Deletes healing. Turns every match into an infinite tier 3 Myers game. Has an ability that takes absolutely zero aiming skill to use and goes over many obstacles.

    I'd rather face literally anything else instead of a Plague.

    Literally has no counter play except acting random and hoping she doesnt hear you or see the grass or corn moving .

    Also you jabril to run 2 perks just to even have a chance at beating her .

  • Survivors.

  • HoodiedHoodied Member Posts: 12,600

    None of them are OP in my opinion

    For example, I suck horridly as Spirit, Freddy, and Billy

    These guys people always say are strong too, don't see why

    Freddy is only strong when you spam snares, Spirit almost requires hearing, Billy can be looped easily.

  • Yung_SlugYung_Slug Member Posts: 2,236

    Deletes stealth

    Deletes healing

    Optimal survivors don't do either of those things anyway.

    Plague =/= Tier 3 Myers. Myers gets faster vault speed and a better lunge. Plague has nothing to help her end a chase quicker once she's done puking.

    You can also cleanse as long as you're smart with it. Cleanse in a corner of the map and make her leave an important area to get the fountain. Try for a pallet stun to cancel her corrupt purge (she'll probably respect the pallet but at that point it's similar to playing against huntress).

    A good plague will stomp new players, but survivors who are good at chases will give her a hard time.

  • Yung_SlugYung_Slug Member Posts: 2,236

    I don't think there's an overpowered killer. There's overpowered add-ons, but killers at base aren't OP imo.

  • WaffleyumboyWaffleyumboy Member Posts: 7,318

    Spirit is a little too easy imo, but since sounds are bugged no killer is too powerful. Anyone who can get good at nurse deserves 4ks.

  • ReallyBigShoeReallyBigShoe Member Posts: 764

    There isn't any overpowered killers anymore. As others have stated, the most OP thing in this game are survivors.

  • ElenaElena Member Posts: 2,188

    In MY opinion, Huntress is overpowered; her iridescent hatches + infantry belt = destruction.

    Seriously though, her hatchets are insane with these add-ons and even if you don't use these add-ons, if you play her correctly then you'll be ruthless.

  • toxic_clowntoxic_clown Member Posts: 318

    this is a psy-op. this is an undercover dev looking for a new nerf target. dont answer them. lol

  • ppo8820ppo8820 Member Posts: 763

    I’d say bully. Spirit takes some learning and before nerf her and nurse dominated. Now he’s billy or maybe Frederick.

    There are no overpowered killers anymore. Old omeblink Nurse, and old Prayerbeads Spirit were probably the only things that were truly uncounterable. Possibly closely followed by Tinkerer instanthatchet Huntress, and Billy flick.

    But they got rid of all those OP add-ons, and perks, so yeah ...

  • TodgeweihtTodgeweiht Member Posts: 3,666

    I dont think any killer can be considered overpowered, everyone has their limits

  • WaffleyumboyWaffleyumboy Member Posts: 7,318

    Imagine thinking spirit takes more skill than billy. You probably don't even know about chainsaw techniques at loops.

    Finally something we can agree on. This person has been going on and on about Freddy and Billy being OP. As Mcote says - "That's an opinion..."

    It actually confuses me how anyone who claims to be good can think either of them are OP.

    "Oh! Ruin is finally gone! Better go after the killers with gen pressure!"

  • Unicorn_scarecrowUnicorn_scarecrow Member Posts: 62

    I'll say it depends on the player more than the killer. You can give a great killer that is all perked up to a bad player and it won't matter because the player won't come through with a win. Vice versa, you can give a terrible killer to a beast player and that player will still end up being a force to reckon with.

    A hard killer for me is Ghostface (when it is a good player). The instadown kicks my butt.

  • ReallyBigShoeReallyBigShoe Member Posts: 764

    I think that's a byproduct of being psyched out by the exposed status. Most players become inherently less confident when they are exposed (except in Myers case, he's fast as all hell in tier 3). Nothing really changes when he has you exposed, he can just down you in one hit. Try to move passed the exposed bit and just loop them as usual.

  • TruffleTurtleTruffleTurtle Member Posts: 615

    I play xbox and it's very rare but I've seen nurses that are crazy good. I'd put her at top across the board

  • Eye66Eye66 Member Posts: 792

    Overpowered killers do not exist in the game

  • thesuicidefoxthesuicidefox Member Posts: 8,227

    The only reason Spirit feels easy is because 95% of survivors go full potato against her. It doesn't matter the rank either. They just make stupid decision after stupid decision. Get someone in that 5% I guarantee you will change your tune. She's not actually as easy as you think. You are getting false positives because majority of survivors don't know what to do against her.
