Pig most fun killer to face?

I'm really curious and figured I'd ask some survivor mains. About 40-50% of my matches regardless of if I 4k them I almost always get positive comments in post game chat as the survivors talk about how much fun they had. It's not something I ran into much on other killers and I also don't think I've ever gotten a toxic comment on pig despite playing her a majority of my matches. I've been playing her for quite some time now and it's something that's been consistent the entire time. So I'm curious, what makes pig so fun for survivors to face? I've only ever gotten to play against her once so unfortunately I can't input much from the survivors side myself so I figured I'd ask as I'm genuinely curious and glad people are enjoying themselves.

    Amanda’s letter: put helmet on two survivors. Immediately after, AFK in front of one of two of boxes. If the other Reverse bear trap box doesn’t take the helmet off, They die no matter what :) is that still fun?

    2k hours , only seen it three times.

    I like playing against Legion more (especially if the killer is Julie).

    Basically my thoughts as well. The person playing the killer is what makes it fun for me, not so much the killer itself. Though I think I'd rather go up against a variety of killers over any single one, personally. Pig's great and all, but if it were nothing but Pigs all day, I'd get bored of that sooner or later.

    Hmm perhaps it's just the way I play pig as a very hit and run with a lot of surveillance control that people enjoy. Well thanks for the input everyone!

    If the player is decent and fair, sure, Pig can be fun to verse. But if the Killer just tunnels the person with the Trap or starts camping, because hiding your Terror Radius is an outstanding move... not so much fun.

    For me, Billy is the most fun Killer to verse. But again here - it depends on the player. I also versed Billys who hooked me right at the start and were holding their Chainsaw in my face. This was not fun.

    Not for me. Most of the Pigs I face tend to camp or tunnel, even when the person has a trap on their head.

    I like playing against billy the most personally,Pig is just kind of an m1 killer at most loops. Unless she dashes everywhere lmao,but it isn't useful at alot of loops.

    She's certainly not strong, nor fun to play as.

    Gotta hard disagree there. Stealth, slowdown, and moon dashing and mindgame flip dashes turn a lot of otherwise safe loops into pretty reliable hits. She has the most redlight control of any killer able to make it appear and disappear instantly. She's got pretty solid chases with her anti loop, easy first hits/grabs, and she rarely gets genrushed hard. Even against people that know how to deal with her dash you can fake roar to force them out of position with combat straps and just slapping them with a basic attack as they can't choose to be safe from both. I mean heck with cosmetics and no red light she actually looks like a survivor with urban evasion especially from the back and that actually comes up sometimes in hilarious ways. Pigs got a lot of potential both for gameplay and just fun shenanigans. Boops are also amusing. You should have something to chuckle about every day with pig.

    to me pig is meh, RNG powers are gross for both sides

    a good billy who doesnt rely on addons can be really fun

    a freddy who spams snares and bloodlust pallets (Most freddy players tbh) is not fun

  • FFabeqFFabeq Member Posts: 530

    She is 10x better than freddy, docotor, spirit. To face against

    Traps are dangerous enough to be scary, easy enough to manage and good at slowing the gen speeds. Stealth and dash attacks are good for both sneaking up and chasing, both not at all annoying or feel unfair for the survivors. And finally, a chance to boop the snoot to gamble ones life. No idea why people like to face this killer honestly :)

    Came in to say this, basically. Number of times I've been tunneled at boxes trying to get the trap off my head when I'm the only one with one on and therefore not a threat to gens finishing makes me really dislike going against Pig. I've had one fun Pig game, but she was memeing.

  • cheetocultleadercheetocultleader Member Posts: 1,194

    She's one of my favorites to go against. Like the others said, tunneling Amanda's aren't fun, but everything else about their mechanics can be challenging & throw a wrench in things. Plus she has one of my favorite character designs. And, if all else fails, and you know death is a breath away, you can try to boop the snoot. Such a cute killer.

  • OwlzeyOwlzey Member Posts: 442

    Not really a fan of Pig since I dislike RNG and knowing my luck, it's always the last box. Not to mention most Pigs I face tunnel the trapped person to death.

    The only thing I like is booping the snoot.

    I pretty much agree with the first comment like Peanits does. I hate the fact that Pig can so easily screw with somebody who has their helmet on, especially when the helmet makes them easier to track. It's like a less effective version of the old Legion, where he could deep wound somebody and then just follow them backwards and it would be a guaranteed down. Pig just has to do it in a different way, where she instead has to put a trap on somebody's head, but then gets to just follow them around and endlessly pester the one player. That's one of the most unfun things I can think of in this game, and I really think they need to change the power to work around that kind of playstyle. Not necessarily punish people for doing it, but maybe incentivize the player more not to tunnel somebody with a hat.

    I think it already does discourag tunnelling given timers don't tick while pigs on someone and the hat means they are less likely to be on a gen. One thing a lot of people with inactive hats don't do is heal which I think is a misplay. You'll be travelling around the map a lot getting a hat off and are at high risk of just stumbling on pig and just waltzing into her is going to be a completely free down for her if you are injured. I've hooked or slugged a lot of hatted people because they simply walked into me. If they aren't injured a free slap and move on as chasing them through loops isn't worth it but too many survivors just offer themselves up on a silver platter with hats. No idea what they are thinking going around the map like a tourist while injured and not on a timer.

    Like blame pig all ya want for that but I think the issue is much more the wandering around like a tourist in oneshot range against a stealth killer who can just unintentionally run into you.
