Why is pinky finger still in the game?

Should’ve been changed with iri head, there’s zero reason for it to exist, especially on a killer that slows survivors down, making it very easy to land shots. It’s silly.

    I haven’t played in days so that’s a pretty bad assumption on your behalf

    because clown needs to hit you directly with the bottle and after that he needs to melee you

  • OrangeJackOrangeJack Member Posts: 464

    It can feel unfair to go down because of it but I don't think it's a big deal considering it's on a low tier killer.

  • PikachaouuuPikachaouuu Member Posts: 84

    There is a good reason why despite having an expose effect clown is kind of the definition of low tier killer these days.

  • SnowbawlzzzSnowbawlzzz Member Posts: 1,121

    He has like 5 seconds to melee you for the down after a direct

    He's no better than default leatherface with that addon

    Tbh i only play clown with pinky finger, for me the only way to make him fun in red ranks.

    I got called a hacker by a survivor I downed using this add-on. He said “you hit me twice before I vaulted” lol.

    It’s just dumb that they kept that yet removed his exhaustion bottles. Both were op and needed removal. Giving clown easy to access exposed is just dumb

  • JunylarJunylar Member Posts: 1,440

    All rare and ultra-rare add-ons break the game since the make the killer unintentionally stronger in any way. There can't be any "balance" when addons are a thing.

  • HippieHippie Member Posts: 1,003

    Exactly, all these people comparing pinky finger to iri-head while that's not the point... both are dumb and not fun at all to play against.

  • PhasmamainPhasmamain Member Posts: 10,066

    Because it’s a dumb add on that turns clown from a C tier killer to a high B tier killer?

  • PhasmamainPhasmamain Member Posts: 10,066

    Not only is it unfun it actively hinders a clown player learning. It encourages you to just spams direct bottles at someone until you get the direct and go for a down. I’m all for playstyle changing add ons but they have to be interesting changes

    Iri head was changed to only have one hatchet no matter any other add-ons which is what they originally intended for it before people started combining it with infantry belt. It's still an instant down. Iri-addons are more often then not going to be powerful. Huntress has her iri hatchets which are an instant down. Red heads pinky finger is an instant down if the clown can hit you directly then hit you with his weapon. trickster has an add-on that exposes you when you are about to be injured by his knives. Michael has perma tier 3 and instant kills. Nemesis has an iri add-on that exposes people who use the antidote. Iridescent blight tag insta downs if you hit the survivor on your last rush. Twins have an add-on that expose you if you crush victor. Hell trapper has a purple add-on that can bring survivors from healthy to dying. Why are you complaining specifically about pinky finger when loads of better killers have similar iridescents or powers that can do what pinky finger does better.

  • SnowbawlzzzSnowbawlzzz Member Posts: 1,121

    Fun isn't a balance metric and the game doesn't operate on your tastes

  • PhasmamainPhasmamain Member Posts: 10,066

    Either way the add on isn’t balanced. It gives clown an insane benefit (insta downs) with little cost or effort

  • PhasmamainPhasmamain Member Posts: 10,066

    Trickster’s is pretty much the same but on a 110% killer and is slightly harder to hit

    Michael’s perma T3 comes at a huge cost to his early game and he can potentially lose due to a bad T1. Clown has no such downside

    Nemesis’ add on is fairly useless since most people use the vaccine far away from him.

    Twin’s is only on an idle Victor so it will only work once against coordinating survivors.

    Honing stone while strong isn’t really used since bags and setting tools are generally better

    Even with it he just becomes a bad bubba whose power can't break pallets and can be dodged even when point blank if your good at juking along with being unable to hurt let alone insta down several survivors like bubba can.

    He also has a 1 second cooldown on his bottle throw with a 1.5 total second cooldown before he can throw again(The same as a missed basic attack) because of his prep/throw animations.

    So if he misses even a single bottle he is in theory(I know its not in practice because of the post hit speed burst) losing time over just basic attacking you twice let alone how many throws most clowns need.

  • WalterBlackWalterBlack Member Posts: 82

    What would you suggest they change it to? A lot of ultra rares feel useless or detrimental, so try and come up with something good.

  • justbecausejustbecause Member Posts: 1,521

    A lot harder to hit survivor with a botlle plus he still needs to hit you huntress iri head requested nothing but one good shot from any distance pinky finger is strong but nothing to complain about in my opinion especially because it's iri add on which u won't go against often maybe 1/100 matches if even than

  • KerJuiceKerJuice Member Posts: 1,495

    That’s 95% of the complaint threads on here. 😂

    I’m guilty of it. We just need to vent sometimes haha!

  • ShinobuSKShinobuSK Member Posts: 4,393

    Clown is so bad, I wouldnt care even if this add on was somehow stronger.

    Who cares? Its a ######### clown lol
