Due to latency issues in the PTB, we have decided to postpone the server hit validation test until after the update releases on the live version of the game. We will let you know when the test will take place as soon as we can. Thank you all for your patience.

Genuine question for the community regarding sprint burst.

Do you think its a good exhaustion perk at all? If it is good is it better than any other exhaustion perk (Discluding head on, adrenaline, and dead hard).

    it can be good if you're working on a generator without any pallets nearby or windows, however it can be uncontrollable and you waste time just walking around, i would say balanced landing or lithe is better, cuz with balanced landing some specific parts of the map will turn into infinites or powerful loops, sprint burst just discourages the killer to begin chasing which results in you wasting the perk and having to wait 40 seconds

    Yeah it’s a good one especially if you like to ditch at the last minute. I prefer lithe or balanced landing, but sb is still good.

    Combined with spine chill and urban and lightweight or poised it's fantastic. If you use it consistently you'll find that your exhaustion comes back at really opportunistic moments once you have the hang of it.

    I'd say it's good but balanced landing and dead hard are just a lot better. Sprint burst also annoys me a lot because I have to walk everywhere.

  • CrowFoxyCrowFoxy Member Posts: 1,034

    No you don't. Sprint Burst is not only a chase tool, you may walk a little in the beginning, but you need to be running and doing things if someone is being chased.

    I’d say it’s on par with lithe and balanced. Those 3 have utility outside of a chase in that you can use them to cover distance on the map. None are as good as DH in a chase, but maybe the utility balances them all out.

    I don't think it is good but mainly because of my playstyle. It annoys me a lot that it activates as soon as you are running and I run around a lot. I don't have the nerve to slow walk to a gen or a hook or across the map in general just to avoid beeing exhausted. I'd basically choose every other exhaution perk over sprint burst.

  • arslaNarslaN Member Posts: 1,867

    Even walking at the beginning is annoying to me so I rarely use it. It was good combined with fixated though imo.

  • HeroLivesHeroLives Member Posts: 1,710

    I said it’s good, I didn’t say I like to use it, Bc it’s easily exhausted and there’s no control like I said it’s a ditch at the last second perk. It’s a beginners perk, but that doesn’t mean it’s not good.I do plenty worry about your own playstyle.

  • CrowFoxyCrowFoxy Member Posts: 1,034

    You should never be walking around constantly with SB, that's a big waste.

    It's a great perk, all exhaustion perks are good just because of what they do. Head on is the only "bad" one.

  • twistedmonkeytwistedmonkey Member, Trusted Posts: 3,797

    It is a good perk but only once you know how to best use it. It can negate certain powers and give a burst away at the right moments or rush in for a hook save.

    The only aspect I dislike is it can cause a lot of players to walk around and keep it for that right moment so they aren't as efficient.

  • AwakeyAwakey Member Posts: 2,832

    Not really. I prefer lithe.

  • justarandyjustarandy Member Posts: 1,711

    Noob perk. Only used by beginners or scrubs.

  • yandere777yandere777 Member Posts: 685

    It has its moments. At endgame if you dont have adrenaline for some ungodly reason and you're hooked. When you get unhooked that boost of speed can help of you're being camped. If you face a legion its an easy counter to him but wraith can counter sprint burst pretty easily. Has its pros and cons but I'd say it's worth a slot. Lithe is a tad bit too situational, balanced gets cucked on some maps but can be perfect on other maps. There's never a time you won't be able to use sprint burst unless it's already used.

    I hate using SB, not because it's necessarily a bad perk, but I always end up running towards an objective and accidentally wasting it...lol

    It's pretty much the best exhaustion perk in high tier survivor gameplay and tournaments. Opinions usually differ base on the survivor skill: Low tier-SB; Mid Tier-DH; High Tier-SB. I used to think DH was the best but after thousand of hours, I realised that It was just fixing mistakes thay I shouldn't have made, thus how I got a much better survivor now after leaving DH behind.

  • HoodiedHoodied Member Posts: 9,530

    SB is pretty weak after the exhaustion update

  • HeroLivesHeroLives Member Posts: 1,710

    If you’re a beginner and new to the game I recommend it until you get your entity legs.

  • FriendlyGuyFriendlyGuy Member Posts: 2,768

    Pair it with "Fixated", "Iron Will" and "Spine Chill" and you got a pretty good stealth build.

  • WateryWatery Member Posts: 1,118

    I run Poised, so it’s a must have. Plus, Sprint Control exists— so it’s got some extra utility.

  • 8obot1c8obot1c Member Posts: 1,129

    It should be on secondary action, its still good though

  • StupidPalletsStupidPallets Member Posts: 395

    I tried using it and it's so restrictive in the sense I can't run as I normally please. I wish there was a button-trigger to activate it, but it'd be too powerful then. I always stick with Lithe.

  • BlueberryBlueberry Member Posts: 6,283

    It's good. It all depends what you're playing against. It's one of the better ones against stealth killers.

  • bunnibeeteabunnibeetea Member Posts: 67

    I find it to be the most consistent exhaustion perk in my opinion? You can instantly get distance between yourself and the killer, while running Lithe, Balanced Landing, and other perks are nice but I have gotten hit and injured, maybe even downed before I could reach a vault or high surface to drop from

  • bunnibeeteabunnibeetea Member Posts: 67

    Also, I like to use it to travel around the map faster, like if someones struggling on hook across the map it will help me get to them faster for saves

  • yandere777yandere777 Member Posts: 685

    If there was an activation prompt it'll immediately overshadow dead hard, lithe and even balanced landing. You about to get hit? Just pop a sprint burst and now the killer whiffed their attack and you made it to that pallet.

  • CJsDBDCJsDBD Member Posts: 85

    Ive been using SB with Fixated and i love it. You can walk way faster and ive learned that scratch marks give you away very often, so im even more stealthy since im not running everywhere. I dont walk everywhere but i definitely have to prioritize what is worth using SB for

  • MochanMochan Member Posts: 2,886

    Sprint Burst used to be meta but to be honest I've always viewed it as a crap perk. Especially after the Exhaustion Nerf. I think it was good before the nerf, but post-nerf it hurts you more than helps you.

    It just serves as a disincentive to run, which makes you a slow, immersed survivor who is just walking around the map until a killer shows up. It's a lousy perk. Lithe is far, far superior.
