If you can tolerate:

Barely controlling chainsaw sprints.

Survivors juking you behind a tree or object causing you to stun yourself.

One perk that's great while another that tells you "Hey noob! you done goofed! They'll have that gen finished before you even get close!" aka: Useless unless you are RIGHT NEXT DOOR.

    Tinkerer is a piece of crap. Its only marginally ok on high mobility killers.

    He's strong in the right hands.

  • Detective_JonathanDetective_Jonathan Member Posts: 1,165

    He's only strong unless you rebind your keys to q and e like everyone else. Frankly i care about others fun when i play billy, so i don't bother with that noise.

    (Let it be known that i do NOT however, care about your fun if i am playing Spirit, her wrath, is unquenchable.)

    Hillbilly with BBQ&Chili, Hex:Ruin, Endurance and Spirit Fury

    ENJOY YOUR NIGHTMARE (Also good luck find and cleanse Hex Totem while they can run fast with chainsaw)

    Hillbilly 101.

    Walk behind survivor, press right click, they either drop a pallet or die.

    After 2 times of finding a pallet spirit fury is up granting a free hit rinse and repeat.

    Run BBQ, SF, Enduring and Ruin/Perk of your choice, Discordance or Corrupt Intervention are good choices.

    The high amount of map pressure due to being able to speed around mixed with a relatively easy to use insta-down attack makes him powerful, without a doubt.

    No offence but your threads make you look like you got about 10 game hours at best. Hillbilly is a beast. I feel like a cheater whenever I pick him. Games can end in 3 minutes if you know how to play him. Just take your time to learn this game rather than moaning all day.

    People, please consider OP's post history before responding. Thank you.

    Hmm, sounds like you need more time with him.

    And not just an evening of just Hillbilly, i mean really invest.

  • KillermainBTWm8KillermainBTWm8 Member Posts: 4,192

    He's a strong but balanced killer and just needs a little practice.

  • Divinitye9Divinitye9 Member Posts: 370

    You’ve never gone up against a high ranking billy main, have ya?

  • KillermainBTWm8KillermainBTWm8 Member Posts: 4,192

    Not to be rude but dude I think you need to start playing some survivor also because you obviously have a clear bias and probably only play killer just by looking at your post history,

  • ZanferZanfer Member Posts: 643

    Some billy players go as far as to learn how to curve with billy making him come around corners a lot more scarier. Also I like how the OP said all of the negatives with the killer, but not even one positive about this killer.

  • deathsiadeathsia Member Posts: 250

    People please consider this trolls posting history before taking them seriously. Thank you.

    Just like most top tier killers, if you want to see why they are top tier you have to go against one that is very experienced with that killer. Billy can instantly down people with his chainsaw and has a good and fast mobility that could really help him apply loads of map pressure. I suck as Billy though.

  • _LC_LC Member Posts: 103

    Bait? Haha

    Super easy to get used to, unlike the nurse he's extremely easy to master. If u catch a survivor in a open area and ur good, he's dead 100%. Also his hitbox it's larger than the shack, hit through corners are possible

  • KurisataruKurisataru Member Posts: 447

    Billys don't seem OP to me, I get why people say he's a high tier killer and a serious threat but. Compared to Spirit and Nurse and a sweaty built well-played Legion. I think Billys are far easier to gen rush.

    @deathsia The Hillbilly is dangerous more so by the power of their sprint's mobility than anything else. Being able to usually run the distance of most maps in a handful of seconds is nothing to scoff at, and the ability to insta-down when practiced can save you a great deal of time. You just need practice. (Or meme magic because I swear every time I play Speedy Runner in the background I get 3 to 4 kills easy).

  • godrengodren Member Posts: 141

    lol no. he can be looped and his chainsaw was nerfed. now he has a long stun if you cancel his sprint.

  • MasterMaster Member Posts: 10,208

    He is definitely a strong killer, but the only killer who can manage top-notch SWF is nurse. Billy can be looped, you cant do that with a nurse

  • GrootDudeGrootDude Member, Trusted Posts: 13,803

    Play stealth saw billy put on the tuning guide and the yellow quit chainsaw as on, put on monitor and abuse also. If the survivors aren’t on high alert then you’ll have some fun.

  • Mister_xDMister_xD Member Posts: 3,815

    billy needs exercise to be used correctly (this applies to every killer btw).

    you cant just pick him and master him in your first game.

    in the right hands, billy is a devastating killer to go up against.
