A killer perk tier list

    I wouldn't constrict Lightborn to hooking Perks, as it's great to prevent the Pallet blind if you can't rely on their footstep sounds to know where they go.

    Other than that, ehh, it's your list.

    STBFL is definitely not even close to the same level as Ruin, let alone the best perk in the game.

    Spirit Fury is not a great perk unless you pair it with Enduring. In fact Enduring by itself is way better than SF.

    Bambo is not a top perk. It's niche for particular tiles or to stop certain strong loops but most places it's not going to be very useful.

    M&A is way way overrated. I wouldn't even consider it top 20.

    Overall C+ tier list, sorry to say.

    Perk lists should only be made with a particular killer in mind.

    Because some perks work better on some killers than others, a general list is only a disservice to the community.

    BBQ as an example is S on high mobility/Long range killers and maybe C on others just for the BP gain.

    I classed it as a hooking perk because I get the best use out of it when picking up a survivor. Because then when they're still attempting to blind and are walking back you can usually get a free hit

  • Seltas0208Seltas0208 Member Posts: 766

    The only thing I'll fight you on there is the M&A thing because your opinions are your opinions

    The reason I rate monitor so highly is because reducing a terror radius is always useful

    E. G : it has good synergy with nurses due to a standard 32m being made a 26m terror radius which is just bellow the 28m aura reading

    Hag(/spirit or any other lower terror radius killer) . 24m get turned to a 16m terror radius which yet again is great with nurses and simular to tier two myres allows you to sneak up on survivors better.

    The 8m increase during a chase works well with perks like infectious fright and caulrophobia and could scare survivors off gens (emphasis on could)

    The FOV increase is nice when not in a chase but the shift in FOV when getting into a chase does take some time to get used to

    Also low terror radius doctor

    I'll be honest and say this tier list is slightly "perks I like" but yeah. What your saying here needs to be said on every tier list about killer perks

  • MarcusMarcus Member Posts: 1,733

    Like Space said, some perks are better on certain killers ( for example Spirit Fury being A tier for M1 killers and F tier for Nurse/Spirit/Hag ).

    At first, I would say there is no "SS" tier. I don't find any of the killers perks being that good. Also, I disagree with Save The Best For Last being the best perk ( it's only decent for Hag and Spirit with charge time add-ons ), Enduring should be higher than Spirit Fury, A Nurse's Calling should be lower ( rush gens into Adrenaline really hurt that perk ), Infectious Fright should be higher, Discordance and Corrupt Intervention are overrated and Stridor, Huntress Lullaby and Overcharge should also be a tier lower. And I think that Rancor, I'm All Ears and Knock Out are better than Spies from the Shadows, Bitter Murmur and Tinkerer.

    The half of the perks are completly wrong placed, maybe you dont like them or dont know how to use them propably, it seems more like a "the perks that i like more are top tier" list.

  • Seltas0208Seltas0208 Member Posts: 766

    "half the perks are completely wrong".

    Alright then. Which half? And where would you put them?

    For an example, this is what i would do.

    Bbq is not that necessary on the most killer, but this tier list is about what perks are usable or good on overall the most killers (spirit and nurse does not count because they have a complete different gameplay compared to the most other killers).

    So bbq is a good tracking perk that can apply alot of pressure on survivors, because you can track injured survivors that are far away and get them instantly back on the hook or try to find specific survivors that you want to kill fast because of (saboing hooks, last hook, a perk wants that just as dying light or others).

    Brutal streangth is heavily underrated because ppl just think about faster pallet breaki thats it. With those 20% extra breaking speed you have a lower chance to lose a survivor, the survivor has shorter time to find a new save loop spot and you reduce the overall time of your chases and get rid of the pallets overall of the map faster. On killers like clown, doctor, myers, ghostface or plague that can down survivors really fast with there powers, this short extra time can mean ALOT.

    I dont want to offend you but i have the feeling that you are a noed player and that means you overrate this perk because you feel more deadly and saver to get kills with it. But this is just a illusion that killers with low experince have.

    Whispers has the same problem, many ppl overrate this perk because they feel that they have a esier time to find survivor but thats not true. With this perk killers start to loop closely around a specific area when the perk pops up, but actually if you think like a survivor then you know in which area you should look around and in which not. It depends on experience. Whispers is only good at finding the first and last survivor, but overall in the game it is mostly useless. You can replace wishpers with BBQ, discordence, surveillance and thrilling tremors. Whispers was a really good perk when dead by daylight was new, but now you have a ton of other good tracking perks.

    ps: I have to mention that i made this in like 10min so some perks might not be 100% at the spot where i want it but this should be fine for now.

  • MarcusMarcus Member Posts: 1,733

    Bamboozle, Corrupt Intervention and Furtive Chase are too already. And Infectious Fright should be higher, it's good on any killer if you want to slug and it's deadly on Plague and Myers.

  • LCGasterLCGaster Member Posts: 3,154

    Nice to see I'm at the top of the list, always knew I was the best

  • BenZ0BenZ0 Member Posts: 1,088


    Infectious Fright is not on A because some killers really dont need or want to use this perk, for an example, Hag, Huntress (because of her small terror radius), Doctor, Legion and wraith. And these are alot of Killers that cant really make use of it compared to enduring, pop goes the genrush and bamboozle.

    But i am happy you understand me^^

  • Seltas0208Seltas0208 Member Posts: 766

    Those are all valid point you've made and it's your opinion.

    Although I kinda just rated noed highly due to the amount of complaints about it and the face that it's an insta down at the end of the match and it can have a huge effect on the game. I'd I can help it I try not to use noed

  • BenZ0BenZ0 Member Posts: 1,088


    I got you, dont worry and i understand what you mean. But the complains are not about that noed is OP or too strong, just a few ppl do that and honstly they dont really know what they are talking about.

    The complains about noed are mostly that it is a no skill or effort requierment to get those insta kill compared to make your choice. It is really frustrating as survivor when you loop a killer really long and then gets "outskilled" by noed at the end. That happens to me quiet alot and i am even a killer main. So i can understand those ppl who complain about it.

  • MarcusMarcus Member Posts: 1,733

    Some Hag mains I know told me that Infectious Fright is good on her combined with Monitor and Abuse. Huntress can do the same thing, combine with Monitor and Abuse and go for a slugging build ( especially because Huntress is a very good slugger ). IF deserves to be A tier much more than Bamboozle, Bamboozle is usually not needed and can be played around prety easily.
