    It's only useful for farming and builds that care about your terror radius(Doctor, Unnerving Presence, Coulrophobia). It can trick noobs into thinking you are closer than you really are, also.

    @Tzeentchling9 summed it up perfectly. If your looking to farm deviousness (not a hard thing to do even without distressing) then its great for that however as a standalone perk its pretty useless and may actually work against you. It only really works well on builds that are centered around the terror radius. Doctor being the one killer that benefits the most from it since he can have an almost map wide terror radius with the right addons.

    Try it on doctor. It's a must have.

    Monitor & Abuse decreases it by up to 8 meters while you're not in a chase, increases it by the same amount while you are in a chase.

    Remember that M&A only effects the Terror Radius and not Huntress Humming, which is also directional. It is unlikely it will help with sneaking up on Survivors with Huntress.

    Aside from using Distressing with perk builds it is also just a god perk to have on smaller maps as it helps confuse survivors with pin-pointing your exact location (unless they have line of sight).

    I know I've managed to sneak up on people while using Distressing because they are not sure of how close or far I actually am.

    I only use it for extra BP on my doc farming build tbh

  • HellDescentHellDescent Member Posts: 1,966

    Distressing, sloppy butcher, unnerving presence and coulrophobia are a pretty good mix for a doctor.

    Thanks

    Alone? Not great unless you just want bloodpoints. Combine it with Caulrophobia or Unnerving Presence and it's pretty nasty though. Wouldn't recommend it on sub-32m terror radius killers though.
  • SnakeSound222SnakeSound222 Member Posts: 1,462

    Good on Doctor, EW3 Myers with terror radius increase add-ons and perks, and builds with Coulrophobia, Unnerving Presence, or Overwhelming Presence.

    It's ok on other Killers with a 32 meter terror radius unless you're a BP farmer. It's not good on Killers with a terror radius of smaller than 32 meters though.

    Distressing is underrated.

    It can make a person go off a gen for a short time...

    on Doctor it is a must, and paired with unnerving presence it can be good as well.
