Who’s your killer main and why?

    I love SAW with a passion, and she's super fun to play. I don't play killer at a very high rank, because I don't want to. I prefer low green as killer, or at least with Pig against confused randoms.

    There's something as well about the "unseen predator" style of gameplay that's just FUN. And as I have said before, I love to get a snowball effect with people dropping almost all at once.

    Oni for the win!

    Followed by freddy

    Nurse, love everything about her. Her design, story and gameplay are all amazing. Sad she’s been changed so much though.

    Oni because he's one of the strongest killers in the game, and at red ranks, you have to be sweaty to win. This is, of course, the dev's faults, but we already know they can't balance at all, so you work with what you've got.

    BBQ/Infectious/M+A/ a slowdown perk, plus Scalped Topknot and a Speed or Duration add-on is one of the strongest builds in the game, out of any killer, period.

    Doctor map knowledge and gen stalling is amazing if you play him well.

  • DonZwiebelDonZwiebel Member Posts: 112

    Hag and Doctor are my current favourites. Sometimes I play Ghostface with Selfie-Roulette (Rancor + Nemesis) or Billy for fun.

  • MarcavecuncMarcavecunc Member Posts: 1,350

    Rancor + Nemesis.. Interesting combination, I'll have to try that one sometime haha

  • DinasyDinasy Member Posts: 29

    Legion, I know that he suck, but he very fun to play, also I just love this idea of band etc.

  • Whiskers93Whiskers93 Member Posts: 95

    Legion. I get to have fun and the survivors have little to no fun.I hardly get any sacrifices but being able to pip, piss off survivors AND have fun myself makes legion the best

  • AngryFluffyAngryFluffy Member Posts: 444

    Legion. Even though they aren't really strong, they're still fun to play. I like to run around the map and keep stabbing multiple people.

    It is the only killer that brings me fun even if a match is going bad for me.

    Been running a lot of doc lately. As a survivor main now playing almost exclusively killer I've been really enjoying him.

  • gatsbygatsby Member Posts: 1,879

    Legion because I'm a survivor main and they feel way more fluid and mobile to play compared to most killers. A lot of the killers feel like a stiff corpse to play

  • MJ_OutMJ_Out Member Posts: 157

    Demogorgon: I love his sound- and character design. U are feeling urself like a beast and I think his portals and dash are two different gameplay elements which makes him diversified.

    Legion: I like Susie. And Legions gameplay is simple, sometimes I need this to be less a tryhard.

    Pig: Piggy is cute and like Demogorgon, her crouch-and-dash and reversed bear traps are two different gameplay elements which makes her diversified.

  • LirulinielLiruliniel Member Posts: 2,966

    Spirit I absolutely love her mechanics and aesthetics. She's probably my favorite character in the entire game.

    Huntress. I just like her shes amusing and fun

    Pig. I love the fact shes "low tier" yet I can destroy SwF and Solos at all ranks. She's so versatile in her skill set.

    Started with trapper. Now lost my P3 cosmetics for some reason.

    Then moved to myers.

    Then mained doc when he came out till i reached rank 10 and hit a wall.

    Now i play nothing but freddy.

    Why? Cos of their reliance on pallets and how quickly i can shut down pallet loops when they know they are not really safe. Its cool when they tbag after a pallet slam and run to the next pallet expecting the same only to end up getting downed.

    I like the new doc rework and that was a buff. You can shut down loops with doc but it was harder in the past as the shocks had to hit befor they got there.

  • fleshboxfleshbox Member Posts: 494

    If they brought her vision up a bit more id play her as well. But as it is i cant stand her vision being so low to the ground. On corn even the high oens cant see squat so i can onou imagine what its like with had and pig

  • HuntarHuntar Member Posts: 833

    Myers and Ghostface. They're both pretty similar on paper, but play completely differently in the field. I absolutely adore them both.

  • cricketscornercricketscorner Member Posts: 652

    Used to mainly play hag but she feels sluggish and buggy after the last couple patches, kinda lost the will to hag it up.

    Because of that, I don't really have a main anymore. I kind of dabble with most killers. Enjoying demogorgon, doctor, pig, and trapper atm.

    If I could get more Lery's offerings I'd happily play scratched mirror Myers forever.

  • BodamEscapePlanBodamEscapePlan Member Posts: 73

    I'm definitely the sort of player that switches my killer and perks up game-to-game. I'm usually all about dailies and the Tome challenges. I don't play survivor much at all; in fact, the only characters I've leveled up for survivors are Claudette (Lvl 15) and Meg (Lvl 5) but I bought the Teachable for Dead Hard when it was on the Shrine a few weeks ago and picked up Nancy, Steve Harrington, and Yui so I may want to start picking up survivor teachables so I can level up a Steve or Bill (I always have a soft spot for Bills).

    But, back on topic...

    I have Freddy and Myers leveled up to 50. Back when I first started playing the game, I only used Myers; now, I find him kind of boring unless I do creative builds. I've really taken a liking to Huntress and Trapper lately. I'm not very good with either one but I have so much fun playing as them. Trouble is I still don't have great perks on them yet. For some reason, I never get good perks to show up in the Bloodweb despite having pretty much every Teachable I want (except Bamboozle, Spirit Fury, Nemesis, and Surge.) I have literally every killer but there are a few I only play if I absolutely have to like Nurse (PS4 player), Plague, Cannibal, and Wraith. I don't think I've ever played Hillbilly in my entire life so there's him, too.

    If I were to rank my favorite killers in this game right now, I'd probably order them like this (but my favorite changes depending on the mood I'm in):

    1. Huntress
    2. Freddy
    3. Trapper
    4. Pig
    5. Michael Myers
    6. Hag
    7. Ghostface
    8. Spirit
    9. Clown
    10. Doctor
    11. Legion
    12. Oni
    13. Plague
    14. Demogorgon
    15. Wraith
    16. Nurse
    17. Cannibal

    Why do I love the ones I do?

    Huntress: She's just so satisfying. I love that she can threaten survivors from a distance and players seem to play a more fun style of game when I play her. I'm not very good with her (or really any killer for that matter) but when I finally have the perks I want on her, I'm going to have so much fun

    Freddy Krueger: I love the mind-games you can play with Snares and the Gen Teleport. I'm so happy with the rework and seeing as I've been a huge Nightmare On Elm Street fan my entire life, He is exactly my type of killer but I do wish his dream realm had a bit more of a connection to the movies.

    Pig: She;s so sneaky and I always seem to do well with her.

  • greekfire774greekfire774 Member Posts: 170

    @CheersTC it makes no sense to have a personal account for each individual killer. You're missing out on teachable perks and everything in between that comes with maining an account. I have no idea how you are rank 1 hillbilly with only his base perks and no teachables. I don't even see how that's possible

  • jibbigibblesjibbigibbles Member Posts: 42

    Doctor has always been my favorite even before the buff, I just love his evil giggles

  • The_Bootie_GorgonThe_Bootie_Gorgon Member Posts: 2,340

    I don't have a main anymore, i like to swap it up.

    I'm messing with legion currently...

  • LaakeriLaakeri Member Posts: 834

    Freddy, he has everything you want for m1 killer to have.

  • MringasaMringasa Member Posts: 735

    Hag. She was the first Killer I really played and learned. Got her to Rank 1 first. Most of the generic Killer achievements I've gotten with her. Just an enormous amount of fun to play.

    Huntress/Myers/Spirit in that order. I main them all because their gameplay is enjoyable. Something a little bit different for each of them, so I can choose which type of Killing I want at that point.

    I enjoy most of the Killers, so I will sometimes just break one out to play for a while. Most are recently prestiged though, so it can get nasty at times. Except Billy, Nurse, Oni. Don't like them at all. Will never use them again.

  • MrGummeBearMrGummeBear Member Posts: 94

    I was Hag and Wraith Main.

    Love both for the Jump scares.

    Many Fun games.

    But sadly after 2 years of playing A year on Pc and now another on Xbox. I retired as a Killer main and uninstalled the game due it's current state.

    Main: PIG: A killer with a lot of variety in tackling an issue. You can play mad mind games just by crouching and standing randomly and her lunge is a good tool to help combat loop where a pallet is down.

    Her RBT is one of the few abilities that can scatter survivors away from gens with actual urgency and reason to not just gen while injured and her pressure can become stunningly overwhelming to even coordinated groups when you slug people with helmets on. Which you almost always will run into one while looking about or chasing someone else.

    I find that chase oriented builds do well with her.


    Demogorgan: Another killer with immense variety. He can port and his shred ability allows me to end chases quickly if you learn to time it right. Which is fun, because running around an non-mind gamable loop or a survivor that refuses to do anything but that is boring and brain dead.

    Slap Spirit Fury and use that shred. If they don't thread the needle and stun you then your power only grows stronger. If they do stun you then by that point you probably charged fury anyway. It clears pallets quickyl and actually makes the match move along rather than a loopfest.

    Oni: He's just fun. I feel strong as the oni and when you're demon dashing after someone it feels intense for both sides. There's a chance for skill based plays for a good demon dash and he's great at inducing pressure on survivor simply because most are aware that letting blood orbs just slowly leak out from them en mass is a bad idea.

    I actually don’t have most teachables but rather only perks that I need for each killer. For example, for The Hillbilly I use BBQ, Endurance, Whispers and Hex: Ruin. Most killers I use atleast one of their perks and then one perk is whispers. I usually get a killer up to level 50 and then upgrade other killers. It isn’t that hard.
