So many leatherfaces

I've been trapped in Green Ranks just because of this dude and they always have meta builds and then stomp my team. At this point I should quit playing survivor because not only are my teammates just unreliable but Leatherface is probably my most hated killer in the game and going against him over and over is just making me a toxic mess and it sucks because I like survivor. Is there like any counterplay at all to this dude or is he just like Spirit but magnified

    Windows and kindred to see if he one of the bad bubbas also see if he is reckless and bumps into stuff alot, but he is def not spirit

    Bubba is a newb stomper. All I can suggest is keep at it until you get good enough you pip every match and eventually you will run into less bubbas. Then you can complain about running into nothing but spirit :P

    Bad teammates is just apart of solo que and there's nothing the devs can do to fix that. Only thing you can do about it is play with friends.

    Bubba is life. Bubba is love.

    Seriously though, yeah he stomps noobs pretty good but any loop with a window pretty much turns him into an m1 killer. Bubba excels at punishing survivors for being out of position so make sure you aren't out in tje open when he's near.

    Every killer has counters. Iv been playing alot of bubba due to my 80 streamers but he beats bad players, just loop and use windows, dont get greedy and hes not that strong, you can legit run forwards before even getting in a chase and he will take ages to catch up

    just loop better. that's the counter.

    I thought Freddy was the most hated killer in the game.

    No wait...it's Spirt. No, no it's Nurse, or was it Deathslinger?

    I think I've heard somewhere Legion is the most hated. I can never keep up.

    Bruh what's wrong wit bubba? Seriously as a rank 1-2 killer I can honestly say bubba not as powerful as you think. Just stay seperated and keep an eye out for vault locations and if you play my bubba don't worry you will be on gas heaven or cow tree map every time so plenty of counters. My bubba hates rng.

    I also run no slowdown on my bubba so maybe that adds to it idk.

    Well I heard Hag today I thought. I don't mind any it's the people controlling them that can be annoying.

    I play almost every killer equally at Rank 1. Leatherface against a good Swf isn’t the greatest. Good survivors will combo gyms/ loops and vaults. Bamboozle is decent on him but on a map like coal tower for eg you could chase a survivor into shack, they’ll vault, you block the window, they’ll then go to long wall gym close by you chase them, block the window they’ll then go back to shack etc. If you play around windows correctly bubba can’t do much but just m1 by force and then his power is useless. But I gotta admit I destroy bad Swf teams for sure easily. But against 4 good survivors he honestly can’t do much that play safe.

    Abuse windows and drop pallets early if need be. Also be more patient with your hook saves

    Up here in red-ranks, all you'll get is stand-still Spirits & Deathslingers, so I wouldn't say it gets better. Though, I do know that Bubba has plenty of counters and since you play against him so much, should learn to start doing. Here's a few I can think of:

    • Vaults: In an open map, jungle gyms & just about any type of building is your best friend given the fact that there are lots of vault options for you to take advantage of. This is one of Bubbas worst things to go against because instead of using his power to one-shot you, he'll have to M1 you instead which opens up even more possibilities, such as Dead Hard.
    • Looping tightly: If you're out-positioned/in doubt, just try and loop around something as tight as you can, whether it's a tree or a regular pallet loop. This is a gamble because if the Bubba is decent, he'll most likely get you, but given the fact that you're in green ranks, I'd say he's a lot more likely to mess up.
    • Keep-going: This is one of my favorite tips to give to somebody when going against a Bubba as 90% of the Bubbas I encounter tend to fall for this, and that's to keep going. Instead of throwing down the pallet instantly as soon as he starts revving, keep looping around it as he'll almost always respect it in order to not get stunned. This way, he'll run out of charges and either be forced to M1 you or waste even more time trying to get you with his chainsaw. Now if he doesn't respect the pallet, keep that in mind for the next time he chases you and just work on pallet stunning him at the right time.
    • Be aware: This is an obvious one, but being out-positioned is the worst thing that can happen to you when going against a Bubba. Look around constantly and instead of doing the gen in the middle of a deadzone, do one in the jungle-gym instead. Just make sure you have some type of plan/and resources for when he gets there. Oh yeah, if someone recently got hooked in the basement and you don't see/or hear Bubba for the rest of the match, don't go down there lol.
    • Last but not least.. SPRINT BURST!: I cannot tell you how much I love this perk against Bubba as it almost always guarantees an escape given he never chases me when he sees that I have it. I know it's unfortunate to take up an entire perk slot just for one killer, but since you go against him so often, I don't see the problem. If you're doing a gen that is out-positioned and have Sprint Burst, you'll be able to make it to a pallet loop/jungle gym easy. It's just an amazing perk overall.
