After hooking a survivor, for the next 30 seconds, gain a non stackable ability cool down reduction of 15/25/30% and a ability slowdown reduction of 3/6/8%.
Light of Hope - Searching a chest grants 100% chance of finding a flashlight. Anytime you blind the killer you make no grunts of pain and leave no scratch marks for 6 seconds.
LOH has a cool down of 30/25/20 seconds
Dire situations tend to give you strength. While sprinting while injured, passively gain health at 10/12/14% of normal rate. Can be used to heal the equivalent of one full health state.
Entities Strength: You revel in the survivors terror during a chase, filling you with unnatural strength.
After chasing a survivor for 30/20/10 seconds, Entities strength will activate. While this perk is active and you are in chase, you may break a vault location, making it a regular opening. This has a 100/80/60 second cooldown and cannot begin cooldown until you have left the chase.
When the exit gates are powered, see the auras of all survivors for 6/7/8 seconds. Gain a movement speed of +3%.
Berserk - You start the game with one token. You may press E to dash forward (the length of dead hard) and consume a token. For the duration of the dash, you cannot attack. If you do not have a token, then 8/7/6 hits with your basic attack will earn you 1 token.
This perk is Dead Hard for killers. It can throw off seasoned survivors who know the timings and loops really well. Additionally, at max level it can only be used every 6 hits. This infrequent enough not to be too strong but also keeps the survivors guessing if you have the perk (unless they have been monitoring it on coms).
Here's 3 perks that I came up with when I had an idea for a new killer some time ago.
THE ART OF WAR (Lvl 30) (Uncommon/Uncommon/Rare)
If you know the enemy and know yourself, you need not fear the result of your trials.
When you hook a Survivor the first time, you learn of 2/3/4 random perks this survivor has equipped.
[Maybe not so strong, but it could give you good information about some nasty perks. Or even to find ot if there is a DS or not, when you have an obsession perk. This is more for newer or inecperienced players.]
UNPREDICTABLE (Lvl 35) (Uncommon/Rare/Very Rare)
Your connection to the Entity makes you unpredictable to confuse your victims.
Your Terrorradius varies during 60 seconds between 70/60/50 and 130/140/150% of your standard Terrorradius.
Affects the Lullaby.
[Here it could be a bit difficult to determine whether you TR is bigger or smaller. So I thought of a timer similar to perks like MYC, Bloodwarden etc. When the icon is black, your TR is bigger, when it's white, it is smaller. I also would like perks to affect the Lullaby (Freddy/Huntress) as well. This could be quite scary.]
FLIGHT IS FUTILE (Lvl 40) (Rare/Very Rare/Very Rare)
You will get your victims at all costs.
When performing a lunge attack, you lunge 20/25/30% further and your cool down of a successful hit is decreased by 5/10/15%. The cool down of a missed attack is increased by 20/25/30%.
[I would like to have a perk which extends your lunge (RIP Dead Hard). An alternative would be to make it quicker. The numbers could vary of cause. Just an example.]
My perk idea is showtime
You start with 3 tokens every time you put someone in the dying state all survivors will scream and be afflicted with the oblivious status effect. and will have the status effect for 30 seconds
Cursed obsession (killer perk)
You become obsessed with a survivor. When a survivor becomes the obsession they suffers from the oblivious status effect for 120 seconds, the obsession changes after 120 seconds.
Becoming the obsession will reveal the obsessions aura for 6 seconds. (Or make them scream).
Fatal attraction (survivor perk)
When you are the obsession gain the haste status effect increasing your movement speed by 7%. The obsession suffers from the exposed effect. And the killer is granted the ability to kill the obsession.
Tremendously increase your chance of becoming the obsession.
imma do 4, because I can
The first dozen times were painful enough.
If you are put into the dying state at least 3 times, Not Again activates. While active, all stuns against the killer from you will be 25%/50%/75% longer.
You will survive, and you won’t tolerate failure.
While on your last hook, gain a 2%/3.5%/5% increase to action speed and efficiency.
With practice makes damn near perfect.
At the start of the trial your lunge is 15% shorter. After hitting someone, you gain a token up to 5/6/7. For each token, gain a 5% increase to your lunge.
“I'm getting better as I go along, baby, but the problem is I never set a record” - The Virus
The young ones taste the best.
Survivors will be exposed for the first 20/30/40 seconds of a match.
“HELP ME” - Page
The High Ground
When you're hooked, you see the Aura's of Totems, Chests, and Traps within 20/26/32m. After looking at any one of these Aura's for 9/8/7 seconds, that Aura is revealed to your team until you are Unhooked.
You hate when others take things too fast.
When survivors repair a generator within 15/30/45 seconds of another generator being repaired, all generators are blocked by the entity for 30/45/55 seconds.
"What are you, an animal? Take your time. Have a seat. Enjoy every last bite."
-The way to freedom speed up moving 25% and you can see murderer and the exit way within 20 meters after the door opened.
-Type change you can choose which ability you want to increase speed 15% but it will reduce speed 10% of another ability.
-cross the window
-cross the pallet
-fix the generator
-enter and exit locker
Survivor perk: Beyond help
"Surviving has taught you a thing or two about how cruel it could really be about facing reality"
For every other injured, downed, or hooked survivor you slowly begin to heal passively at a certain speed every second
Tier 1: 1 survivor - 0.4%/2 survivors 0.5%/ 3 survivors/0.6%
Tier 2: 1 survivor - 0.7%/2 survivors 0.8%/3 survivors
Tier 3: 1 survivor - 0.8%/2 survivors 0.9%/3 survivors 1.0%
Survivor: Death Wish
You start the game with 4 Tokens.
Any time you are put into the dying state, it is ignored. Instead, any time you would be put into the dying state, you lose a Token. Once you lose all Tokens, you die. Your On-Hit Sprint speed lasts an additional 0/1/2s.
Survivor Perk: Outlast
The desire to live keeps you from slowing down.
For every 10 seconds that passes during a chase you gain 1% haste.
While not in a chase for more than 10 seconds you lose the added haste from this perk.
Survivor Perk: Soul Exchange
You'll give your life for those in need
Press the activate ability button while unhooking a survivor to transfer one of your hook states to them.
You cannot use this perk on your last hook state.
Killer: Acquired Taste
After Hooking 5/4/3 Survivors, all other Survivors become Exposed until a Survivor is put into the dying state.
Killer: Hazardous Equipment
While repairing generators, Survivors suffer from the Hemorrhage status effect, this persists 20/25/30s after the Survivor leaves the Generator.
Good Skill-checks cause the Survivor to Scream this will Notify you if you're within 32m.
Some perk ideas for a Puppeteer killer, because I can:
Encore: Your performance has attained the Entities interests, and you cannot help but to show off. Any perks equipped with a timed cooldown have this cooldown reduced by 10/15/20 seconds.
Set the stage: Activatable perk. A show cannot begin without the proper preperations. Start the beginning of the trial with 2/3/4 tokens. If you have any hex perks equipped, they are not activated. These tokens can be consumed by pressing the activate ability button on the appropriate object to do the following: Destroy an upright pallet, block a generator for 60 seconds, or activate a hex on a dull totem of your choosing. Once all tokens are consumed, any hex perks unnactivated are activated if possible on random totems. hex perks do not gain stacks while unnactivated.
Stage Fright: Your presence frightens a survivor to the point where they're ability to function around others is flawed. You become obsessed with one survivor. For each survivor within 10 meters of the obsession, action speeds performed by or with them are reduced by 5/10/15%. When the obsession is within your terror radius, performing an action will increase the penalty for missed skill checks by 12%
credit for the names go to my sister, who had the idea before me, but had trouble making perks
Survivor: Stare into the Void
While cleansing a Totem, press the Active Ability Button to see through the eyes of The Killer until you are interrupted, or finish/stop cleansing.
Your cleansing speeds are increased by 10/12/15%
I really like the killer perk! Its got the complexity and fun that could be needed in a trial.
Intuitive: When you are performing an action while healthy, increase the success zones of skill checks by 25/50/75%. If you are injured, decrease the success zones of skill checks by 60/40/20%.
You function best when you don’t have a knife in your side. Though the pain is distracting.
Get it done: When you are pushed off a generator by the killer and enter a chase, your generator will be unable to regress or be kicked. It’s aura will be revealed to all survivors for 10/15/20 seconds and any survivor that works on that generator will receive a 100% repair speed increase for as long as the generator’s aura is still being revealed.
”Damn it, someone get this!”
Reckless: When you are healthy, you can press the active ability button. When activate, your aura is revealed to the killer for 3 seconds and you are afflicted by the exposed status effect. However, you also gain a 30/40/50% increase to all action speeds. This perk can be deactivated by pressing the active ability button. After deactivating, this perk will going into a 60 second cool down.
”No matter the cost, I’ll do it.”
Imperfect Pitch: When can no longer hear the terror radius or chase music emitted by a killer. When you are within the killer’s terror radius or in a chase, you can see the killer’s aura. If you are to fail a normal skill check, you are inflicted by the blindness status effect for 30/20/10 seconds. Any perks or abilities that use terror radius will still apply to those using this perk.
“Being deaf doesn’t mean you can catch me that easily!”
Your keen natural senses finds your prey.
Every 360/300/240 seconds Survivor's aura's are revealed to you for 2 seconds.
"One, Two, I am coming for you."
This perk would literally eliminate all the issues Killer's has with players taking the game hostage by hiding in a match. It's at least a good fix till the hatch is actually balanced to not ruin the game anymore.
Take The Shot
Take the shot starts the trial inactive. While Take the Shot is inactive at the start of a trial, the survivor will not spawn an item when they successfully search a chest. When the survivor successfully searches a chest - Take the Shot activates.
While Take the Shot is active. While the survivor stands completely still. They can hold the M2 button to aim down the revolver's sight. Pressing M1 will fire the revolver straight ahead. If the shot hit's the killer - the Killer is stunned for 1/1.5/2 seconds. When the shot is made, Take the Shot deactivates. Take the Shot can only be used once per trial.
This one might be a bit confusing, but basically it impliments the idea of a survivor finding a gun in a chest instead of an item. The reason it resolves around chests is because first it removes the random aspect to chests, so you know what you are going to get. Secondly using the chest system balances the perk. Where if all survivors take the perk into the trial, only 2 will be able to use it. Unless the survivors use coins to spawn more chests. Lastly it can only be used once in a trial, which could give you the ability to save an ally - or extend a chase. The idea is that if this perk is implemented it's a fun alternative choice to using perks like Decisive Strike, or Flashlights to stun the killer and escape.
I made another thread in feedback and suggestions, but I'll also put it here.
Maybe the killer could get a gen blocking perk that triggers when a gen is completed. Something like...
"Each time a gen is completed, block all other gens for 30 seconds. This perk will force survivors working on a gen off of a gen."
"Each time a gen is completed, block the 3 gens farthest away from it for 30 seconds. This perk will force survivors working on a gen off of a gen."
I don't think this would be overpowered because it can only trigger 5 times. Additionally, 30 seconds isn't very long and gen progress isn't lost. BUT, it would stop the experience of having gens popping in quick succession and allow the killer a littler breathing room to travel around the map.
Since there are only about 7-8 generators per map I think doing the 3 furthest generators from the completed generator should be it. It will also discourage survivors separating too far and individually doing generators so you as the killer are more likely to find more than one survivor. If the team is very uncoordinated, generators will take forever to get done and lots of sandbagging will ensue.
Meltdown: If the killer is stunned, you press the active ability button while within 5 meters of killer and facing their direction. After activation the killer is unable to activate their ability for 10 seconds. This perk can be used 2/3/4 times per trial. After use, this perk will enter a 30 second cool down.
”The rewards of leveling the playing field, far outweigh the risks. All you need is a moment of opportunity and a lack of self-preservation.” -Stacy Hardland
Grief: When a survivor dies, you are afflicted by the hindered (movement speed decreased by 25%) status effect for 60/45/30 seconds. However, after this period, you will gain a permanent 5% movement speed increase.
“I must live on for them, or else both our memories will fade.”-Jack Lynn
A Second Chance: When the killer attempts to perform a mori on you, you will instead be put in the injured health state with the endurance status effect for 20 seconds. The killer is then stunned for 3/4/5 seconds. This can only be used once per trial.
”I will not be an easy kill, if I die do it right!” -Stacy Hardland
Cheat Death: If you are on your final hook, instead of being sacrificed, the hook will break and you will be placed in the injured health state with the endurance status effect for 4/6/8 seconds. If the killer is less than 15 meters away after the hook breaks, they are also stunned for 3 seconds.
”Death is a fair player, but I’m not!”-Stacy Hardland
Willing Sacrifice: At the start of the trial, all survivors except you gain an extra hook phase of which is similar to the first phase. You no long have the first phase, instead when you are hooked, the entity will immediately begin the second phase but the timer will remain the same thus you have twice the time. Upon your death, all survivors will gain a 10/30/50% movement speed increase for 10 seconds.
”I’ll take the heat, but all of you better remember me!” -Jack Lynn
Moral Character: When saving others from hook, cages, being carried, or death, gain a 10/20/30% speed increase for those actions. At the end of the trial, gain an extra 100/150/200% blood points for altruism.
”In the eyes of God, all good deeds count so I just try my best.” -Jack Lynn
Secret Seclusion: After hook a survivor, they will remain hooked and unable to be saved for 10/15/20 seconds. For every sacrificed survivor, gain a stackable bonus of 50% to the sacrifice category. The extra blood points will be awarded after the trial.
”If you want the job done, make sure they stay put.”
Snitches get Stitches: If a survivor can see the killer’s aura, that survivor’s aura is revealed for 10/20/30 seconds. This perk has a 60 second cool down.
”I didn’t want to do this but you know the saying, should of kept quiet.”
Part of the Family: You become obsessed with one survivor. Any other survivor that is within a 5/10/15 meter radius of the obsession has their aura revealed. If the obsession dies, all survivors are afflicted with the exposed status effect for 60 seconds.
”You’re part of the family now. Better stay loyal or your boys get it.”
Also as soon as I reached the second perk I just went with the theme of mobsters, I did not plan that.
Complexity: When a survivor is sabotaging, cleansing, mending, or disarming; there is now a chance for they to have to perform a normal skill check. If they fail the skill check, it will alert the killer and the survivor will receive a progress penalty of 5%.
”Why must I make everything simple? If they want to survive, they must work for it.”
Silver Tongue: Every 120/105/90 seconds, your terror radius will be placed randomly across the map from you. All terror radius related perks and abilities will still effect that area that currently holds your terror radius. This effect will last for 45 seconds.
”If they think I can be two places at once their wrong, I’m just everywhere instead.”
Crushing Aura: Any survivor in your terror radius is afflicted with the hindered (movement speed decrease of 15%) status effect and if they get a good skill check have a 20/40/60% chance of regressing progress by 3%. This effect will remain for 5 seconds after leaving your terror radius.
”If luck is on my side then many of you will be too scared to do anything right, and I must say I’m feeling lucky.”
You Can Run: Fate is sealed the moment your eyes meet.
Get notified when any Survivor is looking directly in your direction and standing within a range of 32 meters.
When a Survivor within 32 meters of you has direct line of sight for longer than 1.5 seconds, they scream and you gain 5% Haste for 3/4/5 seconds.
The effects of You Can Run can only be triggered once every 60/50/40 seconds.
(Kinda like the killer's own little Spine Chill, applies to the camera, not the model)
Imagine this on a stealth killer, chases would be much short cuz while they sneak up on the survivor and just stay barely in their fov, which is very large, and get both a haste boost and a free hit. This could also be fairly buggy because survivors see in third person, but I like the concept and it would make for some funny plays.
I think it'll be a little bit like Spirit Fury or the like, where it's a surprise upon first use and grants an easy hit, but the survivors will have to be more cautious from then on. And ik it's possible, considering Ghost Face reveals, so it would likely function very similar, except their won't be a highlight telling you how close you'll be to popping the perk on survivor side.
