Who’s your killer main and why?

bored and curious so who’s your killer main, and why is that? No camping leather faces please :)



  • Spirit. Still doing the 4k0c (4 kills 0 chase) challenge after the changes (nerfs) with limited success. Waiting for the day 4k<3m (4 kills under 3 minutes) becomes the norm.

    ghostface and legion. they're fun to play as. and it's funny to watch DC's when survivors look straight at me and still get exposed lol

    Wraith was my main but I’ve started leveling all my other killers to unlock their perks for each other.

    Currently, Doctor is the most fun. He isn’t as overpowered as Survivors on the forums like to complain, I still get looped by seasoned players, but it’s so nice not to get pallet stunned!

    He’s super nice against immersive players, and I can’t wait until I level up my Legion to unlock Iron Maiden on him.

    Hag is fun with her red addons, otherwise she’s average. I just meme with her now and place all of my 10 traps around a hex totem and give the survivor a fun scare.

    Overall, if the Devs would work the bag add-on into his base kit, Trapper would be my main. It is just so satisfying to chase any-bagging, flashlight clicker and have them get caught by a trap!

    Currently I don’t main a killer but rather have an account for each one, currently my list is like this. (I’ll say my rank and enjoyment out of 10)

    Trapper - Rank 2 - 6/10

    Wraith - Rank 5 - 8/10

    Hillbilly - Rank 1 - 10/10

    Nurse - Rank 7 - 4/10

    Shape (Myers) - Rank 9 - 2/10

    Hag - Rank 9 - 1/10

    Doctor - Rank 2 - 9/10

    Huntress - Rank 5 - 6/10

    Cannibal (Bubba) - Rank 6 - 7/10

    Nightmare (Freddy) - Rank 1 - 7/10

    Pig (Amanda) - Rank 9 - 7/10

    Clown - Rank 10 - 4/10

    Spirit - Rank 2 - 6/10

    Legion - Rank 6 - 5/10

    Plague - Rank 4 - 8/10

    Ghostface - Rank 1 - 9/10

    Demogorgon - Rank 3 - 4/10

    Oni - Rank 6 - 6/10

    So personally from that list, my favourite killers are Hillbilly, Doctor and Ghostface.

    Hag, nurse, wraith and pig

    Fun killers

  • XetoilXetoil Member Posts: 94

    For a long time it was the Trapper, I really enjoyed the strategy aspect of his gameplay and his overall design really appealed to me, but he was also really frustrating to play at times, as his tactics tend to rely on either heavy map knowledge or very advanced tile knowledge, so I hit a skill ceiling quite quickly before I realised I would have to heavily commit to studying DBD to get any better.

    Then the Doc rework happened and although it's still early days, I have taken to pretty much exclusively playing as him. The way I play him takes advantage of the knowledge you get from survivors being in madness tier 2 (I use a brown order addon for guaranteed tier 2 every shock), and I use perks like dark devotion to get the jump on survivors and juggle their health states similar to how you might as Wraith/Ghostface. I have to say I feel menacing playing as him, which is exactly how I want to feel playing as a psycho killer. Plus Dark Devotions synergy with static blast, allowing you to proxy shock, is so damn funny.

    I play all killers but mostly Pig and Clown. Why? Well Clown is a fun guy and Pig is fun to play!

    Plague, Spirit, Trapper, Wraith, Bubba, Huntress, Demogorgon, Freddy, Legion, Doctor is also pretty fun to play.

    Myers, Hag, Oni, Billy..sometimes play them but they are "meh".

    Nurse..well I play on console and are horrible with this killer. Want to learn how to play her but probably will never give her enough time. Perhaps if they buff Nurse again it could be worth the time but now no I play her like once a month at most.

    As killer 1: Trapper, outsmarting survivors and hearing the "POP!" is AMAZING!

    As survivor I have 3 mains: Bill, cause he looks amazing in P3, Dwelf cause the hat looks like Link from TLOZ and Kate, cause she's hot AF

  • StorntStornt Member Posts: 145

    I main Legion because boy is it zoon and watch people throw pallets for no reason.

    Huntress, because I find it so satisfying to hit survivors with my hatchets. I'm a baby killer, though, and I usually get paired with survivors who insist on running in a straight line. If they dodge even semi-competently then it's game over for me, lol.

    Still, Huntress is the only killer I have passed level 1. I love her and hope I eventually get better at her. I find her to be the most rewarding to play as.

  • SpaceCoconutSpaceCoconut Member Posts: 1,962


    She's a strategic killer that can stop standard survivor gameplay and force them to adapt to alternate playstyles.

    Weaknesses aside, she's much more interesting to play than the standard chasing killers who are forced to run in circles following survivors.

    Hag, Ghostface and Pig. I wish Pig had a better mori. Its boring.

  • TalmeerTalmeer Member Posts: 1,520

    Legion, I had bought because of them the game and enjoy them until the patch very much.

    Now, not so much, but I would need to play a different killer for a very long time to reach the same playtime with him, as with the Legion, I assume.

  • OmegaXIIOmegaXII Member Posts: 2,060

    Nurse. Because i love staring my power bar, losing my power to blink entirely, dead zones, bugs, float slower than survivors, fatigue, dedicated servers, etc.


    But seriously, i like playing bottom tier killers because they're simple so i can relax.

  • AhoyWolfAhoyWolf Member Posts: 3,611

    Oni, because he fast, he THICC, perfect recept for a good Killer.

  • Techn0Techn0 Member Posts: 405


    When I first started really caring about DBD it was at about 400-500 hours. I was in a little teaching server that was mainly about hag at the time. Clown was the first killer to release when I was really into the game and not a lot of people in that server liked him much at all but I loved his design. So I started playing clown religiously to get my own little niche in my circle of DBD friends. Even after I left the group I just kept going with Clown. 2700 hours now and I don't really play anybody else anymore.

    Hardcore Pig main here! She has a built in map pressure mechanic, stealth and a long attack (ambush) so pretty well rounded! You can also boop the snoot😂

  • PeanitsPeanits Dev, Community Manager Posts: 6,889

    Huntress is the one I always seem to come back to. There's a very high ceiling for what you can do with her, so I always feel like I could be doing better with her.

    Lately I've been playing a lot of Demogorgon, though.

  • BenZ0BenZ0 Member Posts: 4,125

    Since Legion got slaugthered, Spirit atm. I love japanese culture and she looks very creepy. Her power is mindgame based and I love mindgames! Her power is very strong and interesting to use, you can do alot of nice plays with it and outplay survivors. One of the most fun killers in the game for my opinion.

  • edgarpoopedgarpoop Member Posts: 6,118

    Oni, Myers, Nurse are my 3 main ones lately.

    Oni is just fun, and he's a better Billy when his power is up. He can delete loops like killer shack when you learn the angle/flick/timing of his dash.

    Myers is fun, albeit weaker due to map tile balance. I run Nemesis/PWYF to mitigate his M1 problems. Myers at EW2 with 3 stacks of PWYF absolutely shocks people, and it's awesome when you scream around a corner out of nowhere and snap into EW3.

    Nurse is Nurse. I can't quit her. I know I complain about her, but my last 5 Nurse games without add ons or game slowing perks were all 3 or 4ks. I just really wish she had more than 4 useful add ons at this point.

    Freddy was my main but lately i been using oni. Why put people to sleep when i can soak up their blood.

  • BlueFangBlueFang Member Posts: 1,379

    Michael Myers due to his stealth options, potential pressure later on, and also the ability to make every chase worth at least something with his stalking meter

    After that Wraith, Trapper, Ghostface

  • thrawn3054thrawn3054 Member Posts: 5,291

    Wraith was my OG killer. I really enjoy the stealth aspect.

    Piggy followed him. The stealth plus the dash are really fun. Traps are too rng based. But when they work they're incredibly useful.

    Currently on Doctor. I always have trouble find survivors early. His Static Blast helps massively with that.

  • Spooky13Spooky13 Member Posts: 1,471

    Wraith: My true main. Second killer I ever played and fell in love with his playstyle.

    Legion: Took a break when Spirit came out, came back when Plague came out. Tried Spirit, Legion, and Plague, and I just liked Legion the best.

    Ghostface: Big Scream fan, and his gameplay is really fun.

    Demogorgon: Never seen ST, but like the big scary monster vibes he gives off. Also really fun to play.

    Plague: Only for Hallowed Blight cosmetic.

    Oni: Again, playstyle and I really like the samurai vibes.

    Clown: Mr. Puddles.

    Doctor. The actual first killer I ever played. Came back after his rework, and he's really fun to play now.
