Do you consider this tunneling

Hitting some one down after they got unhooked right in front of you

    No. That's just dumb play on the survivors part.

    I make a point not to be a total boosted garbage killer, so I go after the survivor that did the unhook. I want my matches to be fun for everyone and not a be a selfish prick :)

    Nah not really because most of the time they do that with bt and since it happens whenever I play ghostface I go in stalk so it won't activate and just down both AKA slug which helps me counter DS :D

    I try my hardest to not hit the recently unhooked survivor, but if they start getting in my face with borrowed time, I tunnel them into the floor.

    That is being farmed imo.

    It's being farmed by another survivor but its a bad habit to get into, hitting the freshly unhooked.

    Higher ranks people run borrowed time. You'll end up giving the rescued a sprint burst and while you wipe your weapon both of them are going to dart off to a pallet or window.

    That said if you don't have borrowed time and you unhook me with the killer a centimeter behind you, you are worse than Satan.

    Just want to say that no killer is a boosted garbage killer, nor a selfish prick for going after the unhooked survivor. It's not the killer's responsibility to make sure that survivors are considerate of one another. Also, last I checked, killers don't have scoring events for Altruism.

    It's called punishing the unhooker. You just destroyed their altruism points. Good job :D

    No it's not

    If I got unhooked right in the killer's face I would ask the killer for their weapon and brutally kill the person who farmed me.

    No, it's not. Just a stupid play on the unhookers part

    It's not tunneling, no. A lot of Killers do it to punish the hook farmer and deny them their 'safe unhook' bonus.

    Sometimes Killers who down the unhooked person let you get healed back onto your feet while they're busy chasing Farmer Brown.

    I hate hook farming way more than I hate being slugged, so I usually wait under the hook to see how it shakes out.

    Often, I'm healed back onto my feet, but occasionally I'm thrown back onto the hook again instead, which sucks, but onto the next match we go.

    According to the survivor's I've gotten recently, it's both tunneling AND camping and means that you are a bad killer, and you are a griefer and will be reported and banned!

    In all seriousness it's not, but I usually just slug that person so they can get up again, but go after the person who unhooked right after. Thing is I've been called a tunneler by both people whenever I do that, so I started hooking them and then going after the unhooker instead because of that lately.

    Nope. Survivor shouldn't of farmed his friend. Not your fault for the survivor making a mistake. Even if it was considered tunneling keep doing it as it creates pressure for survivors.

  • MewMew Member Posts: 1,720

    thats being farmed. still a mistake on the survivors tho, why unhook in front of the killer without bt?

  • then4321then4321 Member Posts: 234

    Then you have no heart. I also play solo survivor, I don't have a choice when I get unhooked, I can't stop the jerk from farming me. In real life I have compassion and I am considerate of others. Therefor, when I play killer, I take the whopping 10 extra seconds to down the unhooker. Going for the easy kill is boosted, that's what a boosted killer is, a killer that has been handed kills.

    I earned my red rank fair and square, with work and skill.

    But let me make it clear, I'm not saying every killer should play the way I do. If someone wants to camp and/or tunnel, that's their play style, so be it. It just my opinion that it's an unskilled way to play, not fact, just opinion and it's fine if others disagree 🙃

    I can see this point, but if the unhooker has BT, the killer just wasted a hit they could have used to down the person that unhooked. But, yeah I can see your point.
