Who else thinks that the hillbilly needs to be nurft I hate how there is not a long enough cool down time for his instant down same with the cannable
Hillbilly is widely considered to be the most balanced killer in the whole game.
you are right, he does have quite a strong downing tool, however said tool comes with counterplay and isnt very easy to use - which is also why so many considers him to be balanced.
if you find yourself having trouble facing a hillbilly, try to avoid getting up close to him and try not to be found i nan open area - as long as you have windows / pallets, he wont be able to use it on you effectively. always try to keep your distance to him, he is very much loopable.
and when he sprints at you with the chainsaw, i would recommend performing a 90° turn, as he wont be able to follow thanks to the hard steering the chainsaw has in a sprint. this also leads to another possibility when he does get close to you: 360 him. run circles, try to be unpredictable and if he messes up, he is gonna chainsaw past you.
the cooldown you mentioned is also already a thing - after both a hit and missed chainsaw run, he will suffer from a reduced movement speed and he wont be able to interact with anything until his chainsaw has recharged - which is noticable due to a certain audio cue that i also believe is map wide.
for Cannibal, his chainsaw is very underwhelming, honestly. its insanely hard to use in chases and it barely gives him any benefits, hence his status as one of the worst killers in the game. if you have a Cannibal rev his chainsaw at a pallet, keep running. he wont catch up thanks to the slowdowns he gets.
if you are cought in the open, you are done for though. you can try to avoid it by running circles around obstacles in the hope that he bumps into it, which will stun him massively.
in the end, do not try to unhook in front of this dude. it will end badly for you.
i hope i could help ^^
feel free to ask if you have any more questions!
I personally don't find that killer balanced ;D Especially in version 3.6.0, the maps will be resized, pallet quantities will change, safe places will decrease and there will be frangible walls. In this version this killer will really be a big problem.
well, of course whether you find something balanced or not is up to you.
you are certainly right that the 3.6.0 update will make him stronger aswell, though i wouldnt say that it would massively shift the balance around him - if you ask me, the pallet changes are actually more of a nerf to him, due to the fact that there will be a lot more of them, therefore more unsafe ones. its gonna be a lot rarer to catch someone out in the open with that change, which is where Billies usually get the most chainsaw hits.
the map size is quite the big topic with him, i agree here, though smaller maps usually also mean more obstacles standing around in close proximity to each other, so it can also be quite hard to efficiently use your chainsaw run - he still tops many many killers in forms of map pressure though.
for breakable walls, yeah it might be a little much that he can break them with his chainsaw - at least i believe he can. i think the devs stated at some point that any killer with a pallet breaking ability would also be able to break down these walls with it.
imo his basekit is certainly fine and one of the best balanced out there - i will not deny though that it can be quite strong with certain add ons.
if he needs any changes, it should be add on changes rather than any nerfs to his basekit.
I honestly thought this was gonna be a wholesome post saying something like "hi guys I'm new to the game, I love it, what tips do you guys have?" etc. But no, it's another nerf Billy thread. Killer mains after seeing this post:
Ah #########, here we go again.
But in all seriousness, learn how to loop and hide behind objects when you hear him revving his chainsaw, he's quite easy to loop. Look up No0b3 or Tru3ta1ent, their looping capabilities are superb and easy to comprehend.
Uh, no he really seems ok to me.
Hello there! 💖
Stop asking for Hillbilly nerfs, he’s fine. Just get to a loop and force an M1. Also please don’t include Leatherface...he’s literally one of the worst killers. Don’t be out in the open, you’re just asking to be downed.
The saw's oil and gas do not run out. In version 3.6.0 the palettes can easily break everything using this saw. In particular, I would like to point out that some add-on is really abused. So nerf should come to this damn killer, this is valid in the leathface that I said.
Hi! Nope.. hillbilly is fine as he is. Some addons should be super rare, but everything else is okay in my opinion.
Thank you everyone for your comments it really helped out a lot
