To those of you who main particular survivors/killers, what made them the one for you?

Like, when did it click for you? What makes a character enjoyable to you?

I’m just wondering because I like Jane because of her cosmetics, and I like Nancy since she was my fave from Stranger Things.

    Hag does not run in circles. Dwight is the OG.

    Pig because oink, Detective Tapp cause Stake Out helped with my anxiety in both knowing the killer was near and hitting skillchecks. yes my two mains are from SAW, no, i was not a fan of SAW, not until after playing the game at least :P

    For survivors it's just a skin pick, once I unlocked every perk for everyone I just pick whoever looks the coolest

    For Killers you have to try them, everybody complains about Legion and yet he's one of my favourites, and the power you feel when you're Freddy or Spirit is just amazing.

    I've always been a horror fan so when they added Myers into the game (my favorite horror character of all time, with Jack Skeleton a close second) I knew he would become my favorite killer.

    As for original killers I fell in love with Doctor because of how many different builds he has. My favorite Doctor build is "Sniper Doc" with "Impossible Skillchecks" as a close second.

    My favorite survivor is Feng (use to be Claudette because I liked her cosmetics). The reason I choose Feng as my favorite is due to the amazing matches I had in the past while playing her. She sort of became my "main" survivor simply due to those crazy moments.

    As an honorable mention I have to put Ace (specifically with the Leopard shirt) as I have yet to ever lose a match (escape) while wearing it!

    When I got the game I played Wraith and I liked the stealth concept, but than I found out Myers was in the game and instantly ditched Wraith for Myers... Because it's Myers why wouldn't you lmao.

    Anyways, the stealth concept for Killers in DBD was always fun to me, and the reactions are still enjoyable to this day.

    Kate, the boobs and butt

  • hiChiC Member Posts: 217

    Kate has the best fingernail game out of the survivors. Nancy is a cool character in Stranger Things and Natalia Dyer is easy on the eyes.

  • legion because whenever I get two or more kills I’m accused of cheating/camping/tunneling when I didn’t. Just like to piss off die hard survivor mains when they lose to the weakest killer.

  • gaydavidkinggaydavidking Member Posts: 154

    I immediately liked David because I think he's handsome and I'm gay for guys who are tough-looking but also care for their friends a lot so he was right up my alley.

  • GrootDudeGrootDude Member Posts: 14,112

    Leatherface, I don’t know why he clicked to me but I main him.

    Claudette has been my main since forever tbh.

    Feng Min looks like my S/O so yep chose her for reasons xD

    Spirit I decided on because she visually and mechanically appealed to me.

    Huntress is fun in love her.

    Pig is amazing to play I still need to get @GrootDude to teach me how to double back with her on console.

    Hag because I like chess and I place traps in a way almost all survs will crouch the entire game. Wont matter if I'm a 110 if ur not even 80 percent.

  • BossBoss Member, Trusted Posts: 13,609

    Wraith cause it's satisfying to me to deny a chase completely using some Exposed Perks.

    Doctor cuz i love psychology and i think it represent the crazy part of me. Meg because i don't know. Also i Like legion for the character design

  • ProfoundEndingProfoundEnding Member Posts: 2,338

    Feng because she's cute and I like Asian girls.

    Kate because she's also cute and I love her country style and cosmetics.

    Jane because I like her uniqueness in her body type. Makes her different plus not many people use her so I like to give her some love. Plus she's also cute lol

    Yes I have 3 mains don't at me lmao

  • Yung_SlugYung_Slug Member Posts: 2,237

    Myers because he is imo the best when it comes to jumpscares and he's fun to play overall.

    Ace because... I couldn't resist that smile.

  • MerGirl2003MerGirl2003 Member Posts: 110

    My main survivor is Claudette, because she's quite anti-social according to her lore and it reminded me of myself.

    As for killer, atm I'd say ghostface, I love Scream and his play style is really fun to me, plus it's always fun to tbag back to cocky survivors!

  • ExciterExciter Member Posts: 38


    For that smile,

    That damned smile.

  • Shura37Shura37 Member Posts: 59

    I used to main the Pig because she is such a fun killer to play. I got a lit of RBT's to snap back in my day. I then moved onto the Clown bc his chase potential was crazy but quickly realized map pressure is key. I now play Ghostface because I love his outfit and his ability is super cool. It's kinda reminiscent of the Pig with the crouch and absence of a terror radius.

    I used to play Claudette because I like to play support characters, but after Adam Francis came out, I started playing him. It was initially because Deliverance but I don't even use it anymore. His coats have very dark colors and cover most of his body so it's easier to blend in. They nerfed the all black coat so I switched colors but damn, you literally can't be seen on The Game.

  • MochanMochan Member Posts: 2,886

    Feng Min - she has the smallest player model and has a variety of "stealth suits" and her voice is cute and at the same time super scandalous when she is breaking totems, so how can I possibly choose anyone else.

    Myers - Myers is the most fun killer for me. I like to stealth as a killer and Myers is the best at it. He also has so many different play styles you can choose from with his power and add-ons. Very versatile killer that you can play in a variety of ways, with snowball potential.

  • palotheaspalotheas Member Posts: 118

    Ace because he always smiles

    For killer I still haven't decided yet. My favorites are legion and doctor. Legion because it's just fun stabbing a bunch of people, just wish they maybe brought back speed addons or buffed how long you can be in feral frenzy, sometimes survivors are in the 4 corners of the map and you can only hit 1. Doctor because again, its just fun shocking people. I'll even start joining in on doc laughing. Too bad people dc against them still, I don't even know why they dc against legion.

    I also just got freddy and still experimenting, and he's pretty fun when survivors aren't just hiding the whole match. Make your choice and pop pair really will with his teleport to make him a beast, and blood warden and remember me help him a lot in endgame because he loses half his power.

  • thrawn3054thrawn3054 Member Posts: 5,292

    I orginally mained Claudette. Partly because I want Selfcare. But alot of it was because I really liked her back story.

    I moved to Feng as I grew a bit more confident. I also liked her perks.

    Next was Dwight. Because I liked his perks and back story.

    Most recently it's been Nancy. Basically because I love her perks.

    Killer wise I was orginally a Wraith main. I was never very good with him though. I tried several others before kind of settling on Pig. There's just something about her that works for me.

  • Theoretical_HeartTheoretical_Heart Member Posts: 398

    Survivor is CLAUDETTE because she's cute, has good cosmetics, receives frequent cosmetics, and she can be Blendette the ninja or Rainbowbrite the troll depending on your clothes. Plus she's one of the original 4. However I do play Ash and Steve to because I love Evil Dead and Stranger Things.

    Killer: It was Trapper because he's the closest to Jason we have in DBD. And Jason is my favorite slasher. But Ghostface is my second favorite slasher so now that he is in the game I main Ghostface.

  • TomTheSequelTomTheSequel Member Posts: 58

    As survivor I main Meg because the first time I played the game when it first came out I didn't know how to change characters. When I got her legacy skin, I never switched characters.

    As killer I play The Pig because I love the Saw movies and how she squeaks when eating a pallet.

  • edgarpoopedgarpoop Member Posts: 6,141

    I always make/play stealth assassin type characters in games, so Ghostface is a natural fit for me.

    Nightmare On Elm Street is my favorite horror series, so that explains Freddy.

  • TheGameZpro3TheGameZpro3 Member Posts: 699

    I love Ace and his personality, and his cosmetics. and he's also quiet, so it was like a match made in heaven.

    When I play killer, the parts I hate the most are looking for survivors, and how fast gens go. So, I decided to killer main Doctor. Tier 3 Madness just stops everyone from doing things for like 14 seconds (I always use the exhaustion add-on that adds more time), but most importantly, I don't even need to look. That, and the hard yet very satisfying ability to stop survivors from dropping pallets and vaulting is very good.

    Not saying he's one of the best killers, but I feel like he is the (second) most underrated (first goes to Bubba. also not the strongest, but way more underrated than he should be).

  • PistolTimbPistolTimb Member Posts: 1,414

    Ace because I'm particularly lucky. And Trapper because I'm a masochist.
