For the love of Christ, nerf Oni

Before I continue, let me preface this with "I'm a killer main" but I also play Survivor and I have been a fair amount recently.

Anyway. Recently, I have gotten into 3 games, back to back with The Oni. Now the way to beat the Oni is to gen rush him and heal. However, personally, I feel that the Oni should be nerfed in many a capacity

For a start, he can whip around corners with his demon dash, who came up with that and why? With the Billy, it's a tad different, you have a chance to miss but with the Oni, it's near impossible to miss. Especially around trucks etc.

and lastly but certainly not least. He gains blood fury ridiculously quick, I get the idea of the power but my god, he can go from Blood Fury to Demon Dash to Downed Survivor to Hooked Survivor and back to Blood Fury again within easily 1-2 minutes if he's efficient. Why?

Please, nerf him.

Also, off topic. Why did BHVR feel the need to remove the thing where you can't leave the trial with a bear trap on your head from the Pig, that's literally her entire kit and is precisely the point of the bear trap and yet they removed it. Now Pig mains get to be bullied at the gates and still escape, nice one.

    I have a hard time playing oni, well not exactly hard but i have to get used to his power. But as with probably all other killers, they have their weakness. Oni can not do the real sharp turns just 90° and yeah you should heal against oni.

    gen rushing counters all killers just saying

    really the only thing about oni that is dumb is that if he hits you there is no juking and losing him since those blood orbs will just lead him straight to you, billy's miss chance is much lower than you think since all they do is zip around till they find you then use their 115% move speed to butt hump you and chainsaw you point blank

    so unless something changed in the past month pigs traps don't ACTIVATE until a generator is finished while it is on the survivor's head, ACTIVATED traps will most certainly kill if you try to leave through a gate (hatch will still save you)... in a nut shell use your traps when ever you get a chance

    Havnt seen Oni in 2 months in red ranks. Shows how op he truely is.

    wait... 1 to 2 minutes for an efficient oni to get his power back after a hook?

    he can do that in less than ten seconds, mate xD

    activate Blood Fury -> instantly down a dude -> pick him mup (current progress on Blood Fury gets saved) -> go pick up the blood orbs a survivor dropped because they sat on a gen instead of healing -> Blood Fury fully recovered.

    basically if you wanna beat him, HEAL.

    if you dont, you are in a bad spot, since - as said above - he can easily access Blood Fury now. and when he is not in Blood Fury, he has an amazing tracking tool due to the Blood Orbs being shown to him, leading him to any injured survivor.

    literally the best tactic versus him is healing in a corner of the map, as he wont be able to locate these blood orbs easily and he'd waste some time going back there to collect them. also, the maximum amount of blood orbs in a trial is 100 (i believe - could be more), so any orb that is in a random corner of the map that replaced an orb somewhere easily accessable brings you some value.

    I have literally never seen an Oni. Guess he must be one OP #########!

    Also by not healing you are giving him his power for free.

    fyi you cannot leave through exit gate with an RBT, I took a slugged Bill to the gate when he had one on, let him struggle out past the gate, pop goes the head

    Billy needs nerfing before Oni. Sure Oni can flick better but Billy is basically Oni in his enhanced state all game

  • CrescentGentCrescentGent Member Posts: 60

    Well .. yeah?

    98% of people who play Oni run the addon that lets him see survivors auras if they walk into their blood orbs. It's considered a very rare addon, I've come across one on every 2 or 3 bloodwebs until the level I have him at now (43).

    Some guy above proved my point, he doesn't efficiently do it in 1-2 minutes, more like 10 seconds. Why heal against a killer that can 1. see you healing / walking around and 2. can down you instantly?

    smh 🤡🤡

  • CrescentGentCrescentGent Member Posts: 60

    After all gens are done and you put an RBT on a survivor, they can leave with it on.

  • HollowsGriefHollowsGrief Member Posts: 1,497

    Bruh he is literally just a weaker in every way Billy. Why are you crying about this killer of all killers?

  • GhostofYharnamGhostofYharnam Member Posts: 597

    You can escape if the traps are put on after last gen completes

  • Aven_FallenAven_Fallen Member Posts: 11,577

    I dont think that Oni needs Nerfs. Power-wise he is completely fine, he has a really strong ability, but needs to charge it. If the Oni finds a really good Looper at the start, he is an M1-Killer. And if he does not get a Hit in, he will be an M1-Killer for quite a long time, until he eventually will get the Hit. Imagine a Trapper without Traps. Is not that impressive.

    However, I think Oni is not well-designed, because he focusses on Slugging too much. Not as much as PTB-Oni, this was simply bad game design, because you were basically forced to slug. But even current Oni is probably too good at slugging, even tho, it is more balanced.

    I think the problem here is Infectious Fright. This Perk is useless on most Killers, but way too good on some other Killers (Billy, Oni, Nurse, probably Plague...). I would rather look into Infectious Fright than into Oni.

    Your "strategy" is literally the exact opposite of what you want to do against an Oni. Ironically, healing in the corner of the map is actually smart because it puts blood orbs far away from objectives, keeping the Oni's pressure low

    But the Survivors are absorbing the blood orbs when they do that, making it harder for him to get his power. He must be getting in a LOT of M1 hits then.

    Also there's no way 98% of Onis have that add-on. I'd say the percentage is pretty low because of its downside.

  • DocFabronDocFabron Member Posts: 2,408

    How about we nerf a more OP killer like Clown?

    PS: this b8 wasn't foolin' anybody. Almost had me until the last 2 paragraphs. Gj, mate.

  • johnmwarnerjohnmwarner Member Posts: 3,793

    Nobody runs that addon, it’s one of if not his worst

    The only thing that I dislike about the Oni is that literally almost EVERYONE has the same build and plays him the same exact way. He has no diversity at all.

    Hit, Get Power, Hit, Slug, Slug, Slug, Slug, Slug.... Slu-zzzzzzz

  • AChaoticKillerAChaoticKiller Member Posts: 3,104

    he is a normal killer unless he uses his power which activates depending on how fast you can get hits and find blood orb piles. Even with his power you can still loop him and juke him with juking being actually easier because of the clunky camera lock he get as he attacks. For a killer who cant use his power more than 4-5 times a match being able to instantly down survivors around corners and in the open is pretty justified.

  • hanscardosohanscardoso Member Posts: 82

    I love the Oni, to play with and against.

  • DrownedFishDrownedFish Member Posts: 107

    Why should we do things for the love of a dead guy anyways?

  • tkwmmtkwmm Member Posts: 84

    Tips for you, heal at super corner of the map and he wont able to gain his power. Even he go and collect those blood obs it will waste his time, work for me everytime.

    Also, stealth when he using his power.

    Oni provide you so many information, when he has the power, when he use the power, when his power depleted. Different situation difference playstyle.
