Killer Tier List as of Deathslinger Patch

The ranking within tiers is left to right for best to worst. To clarify my thoughts, the last 3 in B tier can be interchangeable depending on who you ask. Yes I think Deathslinger is not that good (debateably bottom of B). Wraith would be higher, but he isn't because I think he is too addon dependent. Clown is not the worst killer, though he is not great by any means. And finally, sorry Legion mains but he is trash (and I play a lot of Legion to form a decent opinion).

Remember, THIS IS MY OPINION!!! Nevertheless, feel free to tell me where you would make some changes (& explain why because just saying something is wrong won't change my mind).

    I would move spirit, freddy and wraith up a tier. And pig up two tiers.

  • toxicmeggtoxicmegg Member Posts: 662

    Freddy is at least A tier and deathslinger is obviously higher.

    and why do you think demo is that strong? pretty much all of the C tier killers are stronger than demodoggo

  • Steve0333Steve0333 Member Posts: 529

    Oni is one of the best killers in the game. Definitely better than hag. He's up there with billy and spirit. I wouldn't say hag is though.

  • Realx128Realx128 Member Posts: 24

    Freddy up one tier. He has power that allows him to deal with every loop, plus he has good mobility.

    Plague up one tier. She is very good at slugging and that is the best strategy currently and she has free stridor. If they decide to cleanse they are just simply [BAD WORD].

    Myers up one tier. Similar to plague he is very good at slugging.

    Oni up one tier. He has great mobility, good chase potential and he is great at slugging, maybe he needs to work for it, but the longer the match lasts the more blood will be on the ground so he will be getting his power back constantly.

    Piggy up one tier. Even though her RTBs are RNG, those are still a time waster, plus she is a stealth killer and her dash is helpful in loops.

    That's surprisingly close to how I would rank. Only one I'm not sure about out of those is Deathslinger because I still don't feel comfortable enough giving him a hard ranking with how new he is.

    As you can see, your list isn't that different from my current one. I think it's too early for a definitive Deathslinger position, so consider this a first impression.

    A team of 4 good Solo Survivors would be in the same place as Billy (maybe as Spirit now with Old Ruin gone).

    A 4-man SWF with voice comms would be Nurse tier.

  • edgarpoopedgarpoop Member Posts: 1,951

    I'd move Plague to A tier. She's so good right now. I put in a lot of hours with her since her release and freeing up an add on slot previously locked with the apples put her up a whole tier for me.

    She's all about set up and infection management. Your chances of success skyrocket if you get multiple survivors infected before the first gen pops.

  • deadbyhitboxdeadbyhitbox Member Posts: 926

    Demo is a very strong killer with the correct player. He's at the bottom of A tier.

  • MarcusMarcus Member Posts: 1,997

    In my opinion :

    Nurse isn't on her own tier anymore.

    Plague is high B tier.

    Huntress low B tier/high C tier.

    Pig and Cannibal could be C tier. I think they're better than Trapper with the right builds.

  • BloodMoneyMercBloodMoneyMerc Member Posts: 332

    I'm one to usually say Hag is not A tier but rather B, but honestly a great Hag player can destroy a strong SWF if they're smart enough.

    To this I would say that Oni is just map dependent. A map with so much to move around puts him in awkward positions when he's using his power. Plus he is nowhere near Billy because he has to work for his power while Billy has it at all times.

    Freddy is better at lower ranks. In higher ranks he struggles a bit more, but I do think his ranking is a bit flexible. Also Deathslinger is very underwhelming in my opinion. And Demo is put so high because of his map mobility. Plus a Demo with StBfL is really strong.

    Pig is honestly too RNG reliant which is why I find her to be a bad killer. It can waste time, but the chances of it wasting enough time to actually benefit you in the long run is slim.

  • perezkarlo37perezkarlo37 Member Posts: 24

    I don't know why people think legion is trash. You just need to know how to play him, controlling when to use the power and when not. And for the add-ons, if you make good combinations, you can literally destroy survivors. I PLAY 90% OF MY GAMES AS LEGION and manged to get to rank 2,aiming for rank 1. Also perks like the one from the nurse that makes survivors more noisy when injured, to know their location.

  • OkoruOkoru Member Posts: 144

    I would bump hag way down imo

  • BloodMoneyMercBloodMoneyMerc Member Posts: 332

    The thing is his power has too many flaws. First off it does not help you in downing survivors, only injuring multiple survivors in a short amount of time. A decent amount of the time when you hit one survivor the rest have already legged it toward the other side of the map. With how prominent sprint burst is it also plays against his ability. The cooldown is a bit harsh for a mediocre power. He also suffers a Nurse-like stun but doesn't even have an ability on the same level as Nurse. And while he does have a bit of mobility, it doesn't help that he can't see scratch marks so a survivor can run away unnoticed before he makes it to their location (like if he is running BBQ or something). His addons are decent, but nothing special honestly. His only redeeming quality is his teachable Discordance.

  • devmiccodevmicco Member Posts: 3

    Wraith opinion is misguided. Add ons imo should be considered IF they are fully sustainable.

    In wraiths case you only need 1 green and thus is fully sustainable with bbq.

    You can go 99.99% by the math of matches with the adds on that make the bell global so it should be allowed.

    Legion-C tier. Hes quick and can get everyon injured real fast especially when their all groupped up good for keeping players more worried about health and less about the gens

    Pig- B tier. Same thing as legion to me her putting down a survivor and than putting the mask on them is very helpful for the survivor to worry about dying and less worry about gens

    Demo- C tier. Ive played many games against the demogorgan and his portals are rarely used since if hes chasing someone someone else can go and destroy them and as for his little tackle move its easy to just counter with a pallet or well juking

    Freddie- C tier. Cant explain my reason here but hes deffinitly not a b tier to me

    Oni- A tier or high B tier. Oni is really powerful its just hitting one survivor and focus on the orb than going out and finding more survivors which if you cant find any is a total fail which why im in the middle of a high tier or A

    Ghostface- S or A. Ghost face is really tricky for some people guess it depends on the map if its a dark and forest area where he can hide and stalk than its a gg but if its an open area than it would be hard

    And nurse should be moved down people dont play her much and people who dont know how to play her

  • GHOSTfaceP3GHOSTfaceP3 Member Posts: 957

    I don’t know why people think deathslinger is higher lol honestly I would put him lower .. he’s high risk low reword and needs some buffs maybe I’ve just gone against terrible deathslingers but I’m rank 1 and up until today I’ve been playing all day everyday..you’d think in that time I’d find a good deathslinger but I have not

  • Brucecastro81Brucecastro81 Member Posts: 1,609

    I think Spirit is better then billy: If you are good with her (not def) your chases can litteraly last 10 seconds no matter where you are and she also has a mobility power, not as good as billy but good. If you give a god tier billy an absolute great map, I would agree. you're kinda underrating pig, she is not the best, but she ain't like clown (HAHAHAHAHAH - Clown). In my opinion, legion is not the worst: He has pressure and you can also get a free hit, it's not great but like, clown's power is to laugh

    Everything on here looks correct except for Trapper below Plague. Trapper in the right hands is anything but low tier. I'd put Trapper in front of plague.

    Forgot to mention Huntress and Deathslinger are DEFINITELY NOT B and C tier. They both have the power to stop loops which is probably the best thing to have right now and they can hit you from a distance. Huntress is A tier and Deathslinger is A or B tier imo. No GeN PrESsUrE doesn't matter if you get quick and easy downs.

  • Backless_pluralBackless_plural Member Posts: 1

    I honestly think hag is up there she can easily get hits on survivors if they know where to place there traps and idk if this is just luck but at red ranks i never get nurse's and when i do for me it easy to duke nurses and when i play against spirits its a lot harder to duke a spirit than a nurse but nurse deserves top teir but in my opinion so does spirit it probably makes me sound stupid but im not going to change my mind about it

  • MarcusMarcus Member Posts: 1,997

    Huntress and Deathslinger barely stop any loops. And gen pressure indeed matters, especially on big maps.

  • ElenaElena Member Posts: 334

    Why is Trapper in the lowest tier? His traps are very powerful when used strategically. I personally think he should be moved to at least lower mid tier.

  • Tunnel_Me_PleaseTunnel_Me_Please Member Posts: 353

    Gen pressure matters. hooks create gen pressure. Huntress and Deathslinger get hooks fast. More hooks means less people on gens and more people healing/making saves.

    Huntress and Deathslinger do stop loops. Huntress can hit over the loop. Deathslinger can drag you to himself in short/medium loops and can stop window loops.

  • MarcusMarcus Member Posts: 1,997

    Huntress can't hit over high walls, which are a lot of loops. Long loops are Deathslinger's worst nigthmare.

    And both can't do anything against God loops.

  • NescauNescau Member Posts: 49

    Trapper sacrifices early game to set up his traps. He already struggled a lot when Old Ruin was still a thing, even more now that it's gone. Without proper setup, he is basically a no power Killer that can cut one or two loops short (something even Clown can do). In order to setup, he has to sacrifice part of the map for a defense that's not hard to fight against.

    His performance is also inconsistent. Some games multiple Survivors get caught in traps and you reach them in time, while in other games few to no Survivors fall for traps and/or free themselves before you can catch them.

    The reason I placed Trapper on Low Tier insted of Low Mid is because I think he needs greater buffs than Plague, Myers, Wraith and Doctor.

  • ElenaElena Member Posts: 334

    That's true, his inconsistency causes variations for his power.

    I think it just depends on the type of survivor he's put against. For example there's the god looping survivors and the potato survivors. Trapper has an easier advantage with the god looping survivors because of how frequent they use the safest loops. Most potato survivors run in a straight line or only use a pallet whenever they stumble across one. However I don't wish to generalize that all noob survivors run in a straight line as people have different perceptions of the word 'noob'.

    A buff idea I would like for Trapper is to have traps that are already open in the map and to have a white aura for when they're closed and a yellow aura for when they're open.

  • TheMajorTheMajor Member Posts: 15

    I believe that Spirit and Nurse are on the same S tier now. Also as far as killers without any addons go, I think Mikey should be to of B tier if not bottom A tier

  • Rapid_Oli_YTRapid_Oli_YT Member Posts: 31

    I feel like myers should be higher because he will punish your team if they make mistakes and his tier 3 is good and a force to be reckoned with when a good player is playing him
