I want to know personal counters to each killer that are effective, for new players
Keep in mind a good killer knows how to counter some of this tactics.
When you are in a chase:
Nurse: Use walls and structures with double flours to break line of sight. You can see where the Nurse is gonna land after a blink thanks to the red stain (it's weaker but you can still see it). Her character model is still there and you can blind her with the flashlight before her blink ends, thus burning her.
Billy: Never try to go for a window if you see him charging his chainsaw. If he has his chainsaw ready and you are in the open dont go for his blindspot, It doesnt work against Billy mains, try to circle in front of him to make him guess on which direction you gonna 360 him.
Spirit: When she is using her power you can try to blind her with a flashlight, if the beam gets smaller until you effectively blind her she is real and you should not get near her. Listen to her footsteps when in phase mode as they are louder. You can check where she is by looking at the grass or pointing with the flashlight, if she is in phase mode her character model is still wherever she is, that means the flashlight beam will show you where she is because It will get smaller (as if you were pointing at an invisible wall) when you point at her.
Shape: Dont let him stalk you, try to break line of sight as much as you can. If he doesnt have Terror Radius focus on sounds, his breathing can be heard from a mile away if you use headphones.
Pig: Abandon the loop if she crouches to ambush you.
Trapper: If the traps are in a pallet then drop it first and then jump it, if you manage to see them just circle around them as if they were part of the loop (keep in mind some traps cant be deactivated or evaded)
Hag: Abuse her 110%ms, whenever you see her place a trap leave the loop or burn it with a flashlight, you can also try to activate it at the farest range possible so that she cant lunge.
Huntress: Dont get stuck in animations when she is holding a hatchet (dont drop pallet or jump windows). Just like hag abuse her 110%ms. Keep in mind she is slower when holding a hatchet. Crouch whenever you are looping an "eye contact loop" (Autohaven loops)
Clown: Just loop this guy, honestly there is no problem. Drop pallets a little earlier until he runs out of bottles, when he starts reloading just run as far away as you can and keep far distance.
Wraith: Loop him, camp pallets and dont try to go for a window if he is close to you, he'll bodyblock you even if he is standing next to you and not between you and the window.
Leatherface: Just loop him, nothing to worry about. Stay near loops if you hear the hart beat, if he finds you in the open you are dead.
Freddy: Check the grass around you. Just like The Spirit. His character model is always there when he is invisible so you can use the flashlight beam to check where he is. Once he is visible he is easy to loop. Keep in mind his lunge range looks smaller than what it actually is, dont underestimate it.
Hope this helps :)
As @Unnamed_Freak pointed, I forgot about Doctor 😂
If you see him charging his Shockwave you can go for his blindspot, he wont hit you. If he hits you with It you have to keep in mind you wont be able to jump windows/pallets or throw any pallet down for 3 seconds. His red stain add-on is pretty powerful so stay away from Jungle Gyms and go for the "eye contact loops"
I also added a couple of tricks to some characters as I forgot to mention them when I made this.
I still have yo play against The Plague, maybe when I do I'll edit this post again :)
Also if you can get through windows early enough against billy/leatherface they're forced to M1 instead of chainsaw.
Noob guide 101 lol.. I feel like 70% of rank 1s don't even know half of that
Was hoping for a counter to legion.
Then I remembered, they don't have one.
The true counter to Nurse is playing on PS4 and Xbox lul
So people can be happy, you need to play legion to learn there counter
Legion: Faking out vaults work on legion, exhaust perks "slightly" work but not long, Legion is NOT countered by dead hard, they can swing right through it, Legion is countered by precise pallet stun timing as well, take it from a legion main, these work well
Equip Sprint burst, Self care, Decisive strike and Adrenaline. If you're not being chased, go to a gen and hold M1 until the progress bar is completely filled. If you're being chased, abuse either the bad map design most maps suffer from or your smaller collision to run in circles around stuff with a pallet at hand to nullify the killer's higher movement speed. Boom. You countered each and every killer in the game (including the Nurse).

What about Doc though?
You can break chase vs doc aswell even though its quite difficult if he uses the red light addon
@RSB Your freddy counter forgot some things, run selfcare or simply exist
Best counter guide I have ever seen on these forums tbh
