Do you consider ECG hook camping to be toxic?

Gates are open and one survivor hooked, rest of team fully healed.

A lot of killers don't consider it camping and to them camping is staying on hooked survivor on their first hook until they die during early game.

    No....Its a necessity unfortunately in your scenario. The only play at that time is to try and use their altruism against them. Hopefully turn that camp into a 2K . That's what I would do anyway.

    No. What else are you supposed to do? Go watch the Survivors tbag at the gate?

    What else is a killer supposed to do?

    What do you want me to do? Let the Survivor get to the gate and t-bag me after nicely letting them leave? God forbid I do something a Survivor doesn't like.

    If you don't have a means of downing another survivor than no it is not toxic. If it was a killer with a chainsaw I would call it toxic because they have a way to down another survivor. If you were old nurse I would also call it toxic cause you could catch them before they get to the exit if you were good. Now, with the cd for blinks, I'm not so sure.

    No. As much as it can suck if you're the one on the hook, there is literally no reason for the killer to leave

    No. Sux for the survivor but at the point it may be the difference between the killer getting a safety pip or not. Plus a well organized team can still get him out if it is not an insta down killer.

    Only making this post because I've seen many survivors complain about it both as killer and me being a survivor on the same team as them. Just wanted to see if it is actually considered toxic/nooby by the game's community.

    Nope. If they don't, someone can easily unhook them and run right out the gates, taking a hit a long the way just to be safe. I would never expect someone to give up a kill like that.

    Nothing wrong with camping/tunnelling in endgame imo, it's not like there are gens left to worry about. Sensible survivors usually understand this, others will see no meaningful difference between that and proxy camping followed by green mori with 5 gens left.

    To be fair, i dont consider camping toxic at anypoint really. Unfun? Yes. But with the amount of times survivors throw themselves at the killer to get the unhook, sometimes camping is just a great strategy

  • ShrekIsHotShrekIsHot Member Posts: 3,180

    I see it too, I'm not just gonna let someone escape, that's [BAD WORD].

    Not at all, it's just a last try for a kill, totally understandable

  • TAGTAG Member Posts: 8,563

    My favorite post-game comments are from a Survivor who died during endgame to camping saying "You shouldn't camp during the endgame because then you don't improve as a player." Yep, you're totally being sincere and not just poorly trying to cover up being salty. Somehow, they never seem to have a good answer to "What should I have done instead?"

    No? I welcome the challenge 😈

  • OmegaXIIOmegaXII Member Posts: 1,756

    Does anyone here noticed the op wrote "ECG" instead of "EGC"? :)

  • CarpemortumCarpemortum Member Posts: 4,510

    Able to down a survivor and guarantee is another thing. If you go chainsaw sprinting at one, and another unhooks, and you miss, camping would have been a better move.

  • Dr_LoomisDr_Loomis Member Posts: 2,723


    And it's also a challenge (2 x sacrifice in egc) in the new Tome part.

    the gates are open, what else do you do? you secure the one kill you got .... im sure you know this why would the killer leave. nothing toxic about it. honestly lol

  • FrankSRfromITFrankSRfromIT Member Posts: 59

    Just so I didn't come across as toxic, I have been leaving the hooked survivor and go chase other survivors at the exit, of course I get no one and all 4 escape (I am not very good, haha). I may need to start camping during end game, because you are right, there is nothing else to do but watch them leave.

  • MringasaMringasa Member Posts: 720

    There is no reason for the Killer to leave the hooked person, so I don't consider it toxic. I don't do it myself, but that's a personal choice. If there were some other reason for them to move away from the hook, another downed Survivor or NOED is active and they feel they can manage another down, then sure, it'd be pretty trash, but when it's EGC time Survivors need to get out the gate ASAP unless they feel they can make the rescure knowing the Killer will most likely be there too.

  • edgarpoopedgarpoop Member Posts: 2,834

    Not toxic. Where is the killer supposed to go and what are they supposed to do?

  • EmpireWinnerEmpireWinner Member Posts: 1,054

    Just hope as killer that you manage to place them on a hook far enough from the exit gates as that will be the only deterrence. If it is right next to gates. Forget it. It will be almost impossible to camp.
