What makes a Perk worth picking for you?

I'm curious what it is that keeps the META of perks (Survivor and Killer) so stale over all. While there's a few new builds here and there, over all at the higher ranks you don't see much variation over all. Survivor side seems to have ~10 perks you'll see in rotation and Killer seems to have about the same amount even though they all have very different powers.


What makes a perk worth picking?

EDIT: Forgot to include an OTHER option , so please post it below with "OTHER: " so it is easily searchable.

    I guess it's a mix out of all of these. We have four perks so one I can have for fun and unexpected like Tenacity, and then Bond for information/knowledge etc.

    Stuff like Distortion are my favourite.

    I love playing with forgotten perks that synergy together, but can't play without DS (it's OP but with random teamates I get farmed a lot)

    Especially for the archives, I will tailor my entire build to accomplishing whatever challenge or Daily I'm doing at the moment.

    I'm all about supporting my team so my main build is We'l Make It, Borrowed Time, For The People, and Inner Strength.

    If the killer is far away and I get the unhook = We'll Make It

    If the killer is close and I get the unhook = Borrowed Time

    If I don't get the save and we need a quick emergency heal = For the People

    Inner strength is just there as a pocket heal for when I need it. I usually save it for when I use For the People and the broken timer runs out

    I'm a big fan of perks like Autodidact and Breakout that basically give you secondary objectives to do during the game. Perks like that tend to be super rewarding when they work and I love that feeling.

    I also like perks that are situational to the point where they're rarely used, but effective when the situation is right. For example, I love running Hope and making daring plays during the endgame collapse. I get a kick out of imagining my opponents' reactions when they finally see my perks. Like, imagine being a Trapper and wondering who keeps undoing your traps and getting to the lobby and seeing that notstarboard was running freaking Small Game :D

    WGLF, even tier I, is mandatory for me cause I'm a ######### for BPs. Other than that I like to get creative.

    Hiding from/evading the killer is my biggest weakness, so stealth perks are what appeal to me the most, but I also want to be helpful to my teammates, so my builds typically look like this. Either:

    • We'll Make It
    • 3 stealth perks

    Or:

    • We'll Make It
    • 2 stealth perks
    • Some other random perk. It could be Left Behind, or No One Left Behind, or Deliverance, or anything really.
