Leatherface's acceleration is just simply useless
I was playing as a survivor yesterday and I was against LF. He was chasing a team mate and he got very close to her, revved the saw aaaaaaaaaannnd, missed, he didn't go fast enough to catch her. Let me re-state he was RIGHT on her ass.
So what was the cause of this? Well there are two things really:
- When he revvs the saw he goes slower, thus losing ground on the survivor
- His acceleration BARELY gives him any speed increase
Mix both of these together and what do you get?
An awful killer.
So after this was all over I checked his add-ons and to my dismay I then discover he was using Award Winning Chilli. You know, that REALLY useful add-on for LF.
Leatherface is a damned joke right now in every aspect. His acceleration sucks, he is clunky and slow during his chainsaw attacks, he has NO map pressure whatsoever and he has become almost comedic in that if a killer is camping, people usually just say "It's probably Leatherface"
He needs MAJOR buffs ASAP, especially since they are changing tinkerer because this hurts LF even more.
The buffs to help him would simply be that he moves at normal speed while revving the saw ( A popular idea among LF players ) and also make his acceleration MUCH better, because right now as I say, his acceleration is not bad, not mediocre, it is USELESS
