So i myself really wanted to become a nurse main,but i don't know really what perks to use nor how to play her in the best possible way. I never played her cause she just didn't seem like a lot of fun,but rn i really wanna become good with her and make her my main. Nurse mains of the forums,if you could kindly give me your favorite builds, and explain why you use them. I'm preferring to play nurse addonless,cause i feel like i'll play the best that way and learn her the best. If you got any other tips for blinking,It would be really appreciated!

    BBQ, Nurses calling, Shadowborn.

    Fourth perk is optional.

    You should first start out by getting used to her default blinks. If you're going to use any add-ons, just use her recharge ones. Don't use anything that affects the charge rate or the length or anything about the blink itself.

    For perks, Shadowborn is extremely good (The extra FOV lets her see much more during her Blink and Fatigue) . Other than that, anything that helps you locate Survivors is good.

    If you want extra time in your matches so that you can practice Blinks more, you can go for slowdown perks, but it isn't necessary once you're good.

    bbq, shadowborn, discordance, and dying light. I usually bring the double recharge add ons just to keep some of my sanity. props to you if you enjoy her without add ons though.

    I run BBQ, PGTW, MYC and 4th is whatever I feel like. Franklins for toolboxes, NC for finding people, sloppy butcher to slow things down further.

    MYC is a great perk for nurse because she can still leave the hook and get back pretty quick.

    I bring no add ons when your learning nurse because they can throw off your blinks when your run out of them.

    Be careful with Shadowborn, on Nurse it's a good perk to keep track of survivors when you go into fatigue. But the perk is very addictive. I got recommended the perk when I picked up Nurse and I'm now 'ADDICTED' to the perk. I can't play any other killer without it.

    I recommend BBQ, Nurse's Calling, Make Your Choice, Shadowborn (use with caution and this perk is optional) this is the build I used once I started getting comfortable with Sally. Stay away from her Plaid Flannel add on because you become more focused on the marker and not the survivor your chasing. Nurse is the slowest moving character in the game and requires her to study and predict survivors.

    I'm going to spit some hard facts at you. NOBODY CAN TELL YOU HOW TO PLAY NURSE UNTIL YOU LEARN HER BLINK RANGES, master her blinks before you start preforming the advice we give you.

    Good luck out there mate, and happy Nursing

    For perks, I like BBQ/Nurses/I'm All Ears/Corrupt Intervention.

    I'm All Ears gives you a free hit every time it procs. It's insanely valuable on Nurse.

    I like Corrupt Intervention/Discordance because survivors go uber immersed once they hear that it's a Nurse. Early game tracking is super rough with her. Sometimes I don't even blink until I see a survivor. Survivors still treat her as if she's a demi-god despite all evidence to the contrary.

    You'll see a lot of players run Infectious Fright. I don't think it's worth it. You go into fatigue and cooldown after a hit. Nobody good is standing in the same spot after they scream. You'll just spin your wheels trying to snowball off of it in most cases against decent players.

    I'd go without add ons until you get good. It's like training with a handicap. Then you remove the handicap and you'ee twice as strong.

    I use BBQ, Nurses Calling, Sloppy Butcher and Make your Choice.

    BBQ/Nurses is obvious. Sloppy buys me time and gives me better tracking.

    Make your Choice increases pressure if it's used right, cuts a chase in half and it's a nice D-Strike Timer.

    For Blinks: It takes practice to get the muscle memory going for it. Sometimes the dedicated Servers will ruin your blinks or you blink 0.1s before your 2nd Blink is fully recharged.

    Good Survivors will try to break line of sight so you have to guess, where the survivor went to. But that's something you have to learn. Or they will run into you, when you have a fully charged blink. As long as there is nothing below you (Basement etc.) just blink into the ground.

    Even if you don't want to use addons, I still recommend those who reduce the fatigue timer or fastens your blink recharge.

    One of my favorites Addons is the one which makes Survivors scream if you blink over them. Great for tracking. The other addons are.. well not really worth it atm.

    And practice as a Survivor against a Nurse. If you know how to juke a nurse, you can use that knowledge to your advantage if you play Nurse.

    Try also I am all ears and infectious fright, extremely good on nurse, especially with bbq and nurse's

  • DepressedNurseMainDepressedNurseMain Member Posts: 671

    My typical nurse build, A Nurse's Calling, Monitor and Abuse, Infectious Fright, and I'm All Ears, it helps really well in creating pressure for yourself, but if you want more of a game where you whittle down survivors I suggest Make Your Choice, BBQ & Chilli, Monitor and Abuse, and A Nurse's calling.

    Feel free to experiment to see what is the best play-style for you.

    Shadowborn, BBQ, Infectious, Whispers/I'm All Ears with both cooldown add-ons is what I usually run.
