Favourite Killer to Play Against

DanuDanu Member Posts: 274

For me it'd be Pig. I love playing against stealth killers in general, they bring so much suspense to the game and you have to be so much more aware of your surroundings throughout the whole game but I actually really enjoy the pressure of the reverse bear traps.

I've had a good few close calls especially when I started the game and wasn't good at skill checks or just the game mechanics (like sometimes if i failed a skillcheck for the jigsaw box I'd let go of the search button completely when I started), I would actually enjoy if they got a buff to increase suspense in some way (like maybe if they activate straight away or increase search time, these might already be add ons I don't play pig so I'm actually not sure?).

    For me, nurse is number one, at least the old nurse, before the nerf. Number two is probably Myers, gotta love how he gets survivors running in all directions when they hear that heavy breathing.

    I don't really have a specific favourite but ones I find the most fun to verse are some of the originals and stealth killers.

    Billy - Keeps me alert and thinking as a good player can come from nowhere and they have good map presence. It always feels like you are playing an engaging match.

    Myers - The one which jump scares me the most. Seeing that white face stalking me always makes me feel uneasy. Guess I just love Myers in general.

    Trapper - always aware of long grass and the feeling of jumping over a window into the unknown. I love randomly placed traps that catch you and make you think who would put one there lol.

    I love most stealth killers as they make me look around constantly. I really like how they change up the game and remove just sitting on a gen waiting to hear the heartbeat.

    I love versing a good Nurse (prefered her before her rework since it was more challenging)

    Nurse, spirit and huntress. All make me play the game differently. 75% of the killer roster you counter in almost the exact same way, looping. A killer that makes the survivors play differently should be their goal in design. This makes the game feel fresh and new without actually adding a new game mode.

    I really like facing Oni and Demo, they are just so fun to verse and play as, also I like their chase music. :)

    If it's a baby, it'll be the easiest game of my life. If they are (somehow) more devoted to the Way of Jisgsaw than me, then they're actually going to challenge me and teach me new things. Which is what I WANT killers to do.

    Other than that, Clown. I never get to verse him anywhere! And when I do get that rare chance, they're either good matches, or a garbage killer who tunnels.

    As for your add-on suggestions, I'm fairly certain that the Gears add-ons increase searching time. I know that there's at least one that does.

    Good Huntresses. It's a pretty unique experience and involves that back-and-forth where players have to feel eachother out when it comes to what sorts of hatchet shots they'll go for, how they handle pallets and more. Might be a bit biased there as Huntress is my most played killer as well.

    Been warming up to Oni and Demogorgon as well. They might not be as different as Huntress, but they have their own little tricks to watch out for.

    Sooo agree with myers and trapper. Trapper makes it a lot more risky and tense when youre in a chase because you don't know where has been trapped and I love Myers for the same stealth reason as pig, and for how quickly the game can change with a well timed tier 3

  • DanuDanu Member Posts: 274

    Love playing against a great huntress, dodging a really close hatchet is so satifying and really love when a huntress can pressure gens from really far away, not on my high favourites though only because I don't really get many games with huntresses that do that

  • DanuDanu Member Posts: 274

    Really hope they eventually give everyone their own chase music, it adds so much to the atmosphere and I also find it makes it harder to tell how far away the killer is than just with terror radius

    Michael Myers

  • ChiChi Member Posts: 774

    Demogorgon, Pig, Billy (without instasaw addons), Bubba.

    Huntress can be pretty fun sometimes as well, same with Nurse.

    Nurse and Demogorgon

  • DanuDanu Member Posts: 274

    I'm so surprised at the amount of nurse replies, why do you like to play against her?

  • toxcitynacltoxcitynacl Member Posts: 464

    Nurse with an honorable mention to Demogorgon. Most people who play nurse now can't really play her very well and you can run her around like crazy...massive points await typically.

    She's always been one of my favorites to go against. When I was a baby survivor who had never heard of looping, I liked that I could at least have a decent chase with nurse by being unpredictable and using LoS blockers.

    The same still stands now that I'm more of a veteran player. Unless you're found out in the open with nowhere to go, nurse chases are often intense and leave you with a sense of accomplishment vs having the "skill" of locating another pallet, lol. Basically I enjoy the change up in playstyle and respect the skill of my opponent for playing her.

    Wraith, pig, trapper, demo and huntress

  • BigesttrollerBigesttroller Member Posts: 18

    Demogorgon-hes a normal killer thats not annoying with a mix up

    Hillbilly-normal killer that is not annoying with a mix up

    They are both really really fun, having a regular killer with a lil spice with no cheap [BAD WORD] or bullshit dumb stuff

    Others are pretty in the middle but I really hate killers that dont allow you to be greedy, or punish u over dumb [BAD WORD], trapper to me annoys the [BAD WORD] out of cuz i may be walking around and then SNAP! im dead it sets me on high alert which can be fun but when im casual matching I literally feel like disconecting... and any stealth killers make me feel cheated just like trapper because they just snap my back in half only exception being wraith cuz he at least warns u ik, maybe controversial

    I agree my favourite is definitely The Pig, it just makes the game feel a lot more intense when you have a bear trap on.

    I rarely get matched up with her though I don’t think she’s that popular as a killer.

  • DanuDanu Member Posts: 274

    Completely agree that she's such an underused killer, I barely ever get to play against her which is such a pity
