GhostFace or Legion? which one should I buy

you know i'm planning in buying two more killers: Michael Myers, GhostFace or Legion.

Myers I already confirmed that I'm buying him.

But both Legion and GhostFace are pretty cool. And I can't decide which one to buy.

Can somebody experienced give me an advice?

    His power hurts him more than it helps. You cannot down anyone with it. His perks are alright. He is just an M1 Killer. 2nd worst next to LeatherFace.

    Legion is in a temporary state of terrible since they needed to fix a killer that is super unhealthy to the game but want to still keep pushing current content. Legion doesn't have any worthwhile perks, the survivor perks are pretty meh as well. Ghostface is a decent killer but suffers from inconsistencies with his detection. Ghostface would be my recommendation.

    Depends on your playstyle.

    Do you like rushdown characters that can slow a game to a halt with the right build?


    Do you like stealth characters that are virtually undetectable until the first hit?

    I personally like them both and would suggest getting both, but I would suggest Ghostface first since he requires less perk maintenance and is a little easier to use. Onve you've gotten your hands on some slowdown perks like Thanatophobia and Dying Light, Legion would be a fantastic choice.

    That convinces me but.. should I forget about buying Michael Myers to get them both?

    What do you recommend?

  • edgarpoopedgarpoop Member Posts: 1,963

    Ghostface. He and Freddy are my favorite killers. He's so much fun.

  • PulsarPulsar Member Posts: 2,982

    idk, that guy makes good points but Legion isn't a good character to play at high ranks. Ig it depends on where you plan to play at. It isn't fun getting stomped, GF is hella fun to play tho.

    Myers has extremely versatile perks for any Killer. PWYF for speed, STBFL for relentless attacking, and Dying Light for slowdown. He’s also not too bad of a Killer himself with his ability to instantly down, but he is an M1, so you’ll need to play smarter and/or equip the Spirit Fury-Enduring combo.

    But if you are strictly sticking to GF or Legion, I highly recommend the former (first one). Better perks, better Killer, with instant down and damn fine mind gaming capability. Out of all of them, Halloween chapter for Myers and Laurie (Decisive is pretty good for Survivors as well).

    Ghostface can teabag. That makes him one of the best killers in the game. ;)

  • PulsarPulsar Member Posts: 2,982

    I believe that is the wise choice. Both are rather simple, but have potential to serve you well in higher ranks. I would buy Legion later, as you can purchase him with in-game currency, and he might be better at that point.

  • StarMoralStarMoral Member Posts: 819

    Honestly, watch some videos! Do research on which one you want more.

    Personally, of the three (even as a diehard Legion) I would say Michael is the best choice. Better perks than the three, better ability, overall better and simpler to use.

    With Ghostface and Legion, they're tricky. People say they're similar in design, not true at all. Do some research on what their abilities do and what builds work with them, and see which one you think would be a better fit. I have personally been playing Legion since I started DBD, and have been adoring the slowdown meta he's created.

    But that's my taste. Yours could be different!

    Legion's perks are okay with discordance being pretty good. Ghostface's perks are also just okay with thrilling tremors being the best of the three.

    Choose Legion for discordance which glows yellow and alerts you to multiple survivors working on one gen. Ghostface is the better killer.

  • BleedissBleediss Member Posts: 124

    Ghostface is a pretty good killer and Tremors is a very good perk you can get from him. His other 2 perks are pretty mediocre, though.

    Legion is quite bad right now (still make them work in red ranks personally) and should improve at some point through an update, but we're not sure what's planned for them. They do have Discordance, though, which to me is one of the best detection perks in the game. Their other perks are quite mediocre or just memes, though.

    So overall, Ghostface, unless you really want Discordance.

    Ghostface is better than the legion in my opinion

  • BenZ0BenZ0 Member Posts: 1,831

    Ghostface is tough to learn at the start, since he is not a normal Killer in terms of gameplay, but since you mastered him, hes pretty fun and really cool to play. I would recommend him, Legion is boring and feels really bad to play. Legion has a really bad designed power since the "update" and is not fun at all to play.

    I main Legion.... but Ghost Face would be better if you don't like the rapid stab stab followed by a build in DS. Ugh... my poor Killer.

  • MarcusMarcus Member Posts: 2,014

    Ghost Face.

  • djsponge10djsponge10 Member Posts: 349

    Ghostface is a top 7 killer legion is 2nd worst so i recommend ghost face ALSO go buy all the licensed killers 1st since you can buy the OC ones with shards. happy hunting (and stalking)

  • LCGasterLCGaster Member Posts: 3,154

    Buy Ghostface and use shards for Legion

    Don't spend money on Legion

  • Dwight_FairfieldDwight_Fairfield Member Posts: 2,974

    Definitely Ghostface

  • SziosisSziosis Member Posts: 186

    Ghostface if you like being a sneaky boi. Legion if you like to stab people alot. In my opinion, Legion is one of the best killers to rake in points quick and sometimes it's just fun messing around and enjoying stabbing people repeatedly. Legion is still one of my favorites. Broken or not n_n

  • MissGamer456MissGamer456 Member Posts: 154

    I’m a Legion main and honestly just get Ghostface. Get Legion for 9000 shards. Their current state is not so good. Ghostface does have some bugs but it’s better than where Legion is.

  • Ghostface for sure. I’m All ears is a very underrated perk. It is really good on maps where it is easy to break line of sight, such as lery’s. It also counters the lithe + dance with me wombo combo.

    Ghostface if you want to be stealthy and get easy 1 hit downs. Legion if you want to slow the game down, the best Legion build would probably be Sloppy Butcher, Thanatophobia, Dying Light, and either Nurses or BBQ, use Frenzy to hit everyone and slow the game down to at most, a constant 34% debuff to gen progress. Combined with the Mangled effect from Sloppy, people will either not heal and take the 16% debuff from Thana alone, or heal through Sloppy, which takes a fair bit. Ghostface can benefit from the standard killer build, Brutal Strength, BBQ, Ruin or Devour Hope, and I would recommend Discordance, since you will mostly be staking people on gens, it lets you know when you can stalk at least 2 people, and you can earn some cheeky downs.

    Ghostface is substantially better than Legion right now.

    Legion isn't the worst killer in the game but he's real close.

  • IhatelifeIhatelife Member Posts: 4,340

    Ghostface is much better and fun imo.
