I hate survivors who abuse Borrowed Time

All four of them run it. Every time you get a hook they just pick em right off. Left and right it never stops. It's like a free get out of jail card and it's just aggravating when this is the only perk load out I see in a whole team.

Borrowed Time. Unbreakable. Decisive Strike. Spine chill.

What am I supposed to do against that? I try tunneling but then they all start protective hitting and when one is down the other pops up again and unhook and ugh it's so frustrating.

    are we including swf? If so, there is almost no way you can beat a squad running that unless you are a tourney killer.

    It is usually better to go after the savior. However, if you really want to tunnel the person on the hook, wait out the 15 seconds they have while blocking pallets and windows and then smack. But yeah, it sucks I have felt the pain.

    Play Nurse and slug at 5 gens.

    If you’re running STBFL then they will at least be feeding you stacks.. Either way you can give them a love tap if they run up in your face if they feel like wasting a little extra time mending... if it’s endgame collapse then even waiting 15 seconds won’t matter if they have DS. I think someone said something like don’t go after the hooked person but it’s not always that simple.. sometimes people rush the hook the second you put them there and other times you’re on your way back to the direction of the hook but the person that unhooked decides to stealth away and the person with BT fresh off the hook is likely running straight at you so what choice is there really lol.

    Console nurse can't accomplish this. Maybe on PC or with Crossplay up...

  • RivynRivyn Member Posts: 2,974

    Not really. If the unhooked person bodyblocks, they'll usually be led to a strong pallet or loop. So, if you down them, they'll probably have DS, thus you need to ignore them. Which gives them time to crawl to a pallet. Rinse and repeat for four survivors it's really tricky to actually manage. Especially on a non movement based killer.

    Borrowed time is pretty op when you can't go after the unhooked and at the same time unhooker has decisive then they say slugger lmao. I get punished for having insane quick downs and them playing like overgrown potatoes.

    I know that feeling losing hook pressure cause of a get a way perk. And some people think BT should be a base mechanic too LOL

    The real problem are the people who abuse it but then complain that they get tunneled after it.

  • PatWeskerPatWesker Member Posts: 250

    You sound like a tunneler...

    According to my opinion, and I'm as surv as killer main, so I don't take any side, but I'd say that borrowed time shouldn't be a perk but something that sould be added to the game by default..

    But i find myself as a good killer and never tunnel, unless toxic teabagging flashlight clicking survivor, for me it is an invitation to tunnel, they ask it. But according to borrowed time, I mean... if I see a surv unhooking someone in front of me, my first reflex will be: oh, you are #########, you unhook a surv while it is not safe, so I'll kill you now. Usually, the unhooked surv can go awway, just because I find it unrespectful to just down again the survivor to hook him right back.

    So stop complaining about borrowed time, to save the fun of the game against ######### killers who camp/tunnel, borrwoed time should be always on, and not a perk. I still don't know why devs haven't noticed it yet.

    Where is the fun when you play against a killer, you get downed and hooked, and the rest of your entire game, you are on the hook, unable to play.... you just do nothing of the game.... it is just frustrating, and killers who do that should be punished someway.

    You cannot abuse BT. What kind of nonsense is this?

  • MegHasCuteFeetMegHasCuteFeet Member Posts: 369

    Endurance status effect should remove collision so BT can't be used offensively (which is not how the perk is supposed to be).

  • GhosteGhoste Member Posts: 1,877

    Funny, when I play Survivor no one has BT xD

    Jokes aside, I don't even think that perk build is that good. They have no exhaustion which is huge for the Killer. And good SWFs don't need Spine Chill and will take something better.

    If it really bothers you, play a Killer that can counter BT naturally. Freddy ignores BT when the Survivor is asleep if you don't know.

    Bt abuse ? If unhooked survivor body block the problem is u how cant avoid the rescue. If u dont see in time the survivor how go to rescue, to hit 1 time before unhook and hit after hook is not a survivor abuse. The only abuse is if rescue survivivor have active ds. But this is ds abuse not bt.

  • NekoGamerXNekoGamerX Member Posts: 4,719

    I not understanding this thread how BT abused?

  • Lx_maliceLx_malice Member Posts: 1,417

    If they try to body block me with bt I usually just wait it out and then slug them. If they have unbreakable they can just waste it.

  • SonzaishinaiSonzaishinai Member Posts: 6,903

    If they unhook instantly when you hook then just slap down the unhooker, slug and hit the unhooked one to trigger deep wounds if you can and then return to hook the unhooker. They just gave you a free hook.

    If they keep doing it then DS doesn't matter because of how much momentum they are giving you for free. Just slug them, unbreakabill only works once and if they rush unhooks like this they aren't being efficient on gens

    Like many have said, go after the unhooker. I don't have issues with BT anymore. I did back when it applied to both. The only time BT becomes a problem is when the person whose making the save has DS up. At that point it's a lose/lose no matter who you pick.

    You can tunnel the person off the hook but they got BT and perhaps DS.

    The unhooker has DS and perhaps unbreakable. Either you slug them and they get up or you take the DS. Either situation is a waste of your time. Some will say having them waste their DS or unbreakable is still a postive but they are still denying you a hook.

  • BitingSeaBitingSea Member Posts: 332

    I was actually thinkin bout this earlier, maybe not the status effect itself, but it removes pallet interactions and collisions with other people, it's a sophisticated fix that might be broken at it's first addition, but an idea like this honestly will massively improve game health in my opinion
