Barbecue & Chili Re-Work Suggestion
Barbecue & Chili was introduced as an incnetive to the killer to not camp or tunnel. Currently, the perk shifts the focus from camping to snowballing too efficiently from knowing the survivors' exact location, movement, and interaction status (healing another survivor who may have Distortion, thus negating Distortion; cleansing a hex/dull totem; crouching near a pallet). Mobile killers benefit from this more so. Plus, it would also tell killers when to camp (if they saw no auras). It's a 10-perks-in-1 kind of information-telling.
What if the focus was shifted from the survivors to the generators? What if instead of revealing survivors' auras it showed the intensity of generator completion?
The killer would know where to apply pressure, but without the game handing them the survivors on a plate.
Yes, I know there are counters to BBQ, but at brown/yellow ranks I feel like I'm the only one who knows this. None of the other survivors hide in lockers (hiding behind gen auras no longer works). In fact, the opposite happens, where survivors see me climb into a locker, come up to it and beckon me out of it to go help them rescue the hooked survivor, and try opening the locker as the killer approaches. There is not enough information for new survivors on how to counter BBQ & Chili (nor enough information at maintaining distance from a hook being camped to let the game punish camping killers), but this is mainly a console issue since there is no way to quickly communicate with fellow survivors.
