How do I counter dead hard?
I keep running into dead hard and they will ABSOLUTELY never use it until I am directly infront of the closet where I can start a search. I've tried baiting in multiple ways and it rarely ever works. It's purely luck if the survivor panics. Problem is loads of areas have such safe zones where I have to give up chase, allowing dead hard to reset.
Then rinse and repeat watching dead hard start a pallet tour for me or let them get such distance from me I might as well give up any hope of gen pressure even if I absolutely kill the chase itself. For killers than can 1 down I find this is less of an issue but those that can't the stun assures attrition. Is this the new version of old DS where the only "counter" is to bring enduring?
Or am I doing something wrong.
EDIT: I meant to type Head on. I'm such an idiot. Countering dead hard is easy...ish. No more posting while I got this head flu for me. Sorry guys.
