Always wondered about this.
You knock someone down, and they waggle from side to side.
Is it BM?
Are they saying 'don't pick me up?'
Did they poop themselves?
Sometimes they're saying "noooo, don't pick me up", or protesting the down ala "that hit was bullshit" or "you tunneled me." Sometimes just they're mashing A and D early in preparation for wiggling.
I don't think it's BM. I've always thought it was cute.
I don't play survivor much but only time I'll sometimes do it is on death hook saying please no killer leave me, or most recently I remember was getting tunneled after looping the killer for 3 gens and as he was staring at me waiting out the DS I didn't have I was menacingly wiggling on the ground towards him making him back away from me.
When i do it im only making the killer notice me and hook me. Unless its ghostface then im just announcing my forever love towards him and hoping he wont kill me 💜💜
It's just a fun thing to do while on the ground.
Nothing more, nothing less
I'm just keeping my hands occupied
If they aren't going to heal they might as well crawl or wiggle side to side just to keep busy. Much like being on a hook. I'd hate to play spectator simulator where I cant do anything at all. It would bore me to death
I do it as preparation for wiggling, but I like to imagine it as protesting being picked up.
I just do it for fun.
*wiggle wiggle wiggle*
It's same as why I dance on hook, I am just bored...
I do it to mooncrawl 😎
Because being slugged is boring but necessary so I might as well make it more fun for me.
Every answers are right here.
Because it looks funny, and I don't have a whole lot of other things to be doing on the ground.
I do almost every time; a breakdown of why:
They are bored to death.
Clearly its "No UwU big daddy killer please don't hook me I beg please :3"
I'll do it to try to tell other survivors the killer is still near. Most times it is a waste of wiggle, but on the odd occassion the killer buggers off and I'm revived safely. Probably more by luck than judgement, but I like to feel I'm doing my bit.
Because they're starting to mash AD AD before being grabbed by the killer for not losing any second of wiggle, It's pretty obvious, haha.
Probably to pre warn you that you will soon be entering a struggle contest or perhaps signalling to a nearby player to try and bait a hit or pallet save. Maybe it wastes a fraction of time for the killer to get the pick up command??
To say "Oh no, dont hook me Mr Killer"
I just do it because I look like a worm
I do it because it looks silly, and I doubt there's a lot of people that do it for any reason more complicated than that. Same reason I crawl backwards/"mooncrawl" or swish my survivor's body back and forth like a broom, it just looks goofy.
its fun to do
Omg what is this thread. This is a preparation for wiggling and because they're bored. Nothing else.
Because they can do literally nothing else.
The same reason why people spam A-D while running, the answer is "Why not?", it looks funny, it's a way to kill time while slugged and some people start wiggling the moment they get downed out of habit and muscle memory.
The animation of waggling is hilarious if you spam A D. It always reminds me spiderman crawls on the wall. And it looks cute on female characters, i do that mostly because of this.
I do it when I massively misplay as a way to show I'm laughing such as a really dumb vault or a very questionable reverse pallet drop.
