    I wish leatherface was as good as freddy or ghostface, with nemesis and pwyf he can get some wins. People just assume youre going to camp and are often completely unprepared for aggressive chases

    I personally like playing pig just cause I like to sneak up on people (ywe I know there's ghost face and Meyers but I like pig more)

    So I have a killer I play for fun cause winning is fun, a killer I play because I like the design, and a killer I play because I enjoy being a contrarian.

    Killer I play for fun cause winning is fun: Freddy.

    Why: Freddy has the best map and generator pressure in the game right now, his snares are strong, and his ability to slow down generator progression with addons and perks gives him a tremendous early game advantage over other killers. He's considered top tier for a reason. I also enjoy how you're somewhat distorted when survivors are awake making getting first hits a little easier. He has tons of good addons, Red Paint Brush, Swing Chains, Pill Bottle, Paint Thinner (Fake Pallets), etc. Freddy's map pressure also makes him less reliant on location perks, though BBQ is amazing on him due to generator teleport.

    Killer I play for fun cause I like the design: Hillbilly

    Why: Hillbilly has great map pressure and his chainsaw while incredibly strong can be mind-gamed or juked if survivors are good. Back revving takes time to learn but it's so satisfying when you do it successfully. Billy has few weaknesses and is probably one of the best of the traditional "can be looped" killer. He benefits from many different perk builds and due to his mobility he's not as reliant on location perks.

    Kill I play for fun cause I like being a contrarian: Legion

    Why: Legion is considered one of the worst killers in the game, and I enjoy doing my best to make him viable. I actually think the way I play him is quite effective as a mass-injury type killer and then resorting to stealth with Monitor and Abuse or Nurse's calling to get cheap downs while survivors heal or try to hide. The best thing about winning with Legion is in the after-game chat survivors can't say anything, they just got bodied by a D-tier killer.

    Hag, I really suck with her though lol

  • Raven014Raven014 Member Posts: 4,188

    I like playing Legion and Deathslinger. They are incredibly weak and don't deserve to be.

  • Demogordon_RamsayDemogordon_Ramsay Member Posts: 1,503

    Oni and Demogorgon. Both extremely balanced, extremely well-rounded Killers that have a little bit of everything as well as an awesome aesthetic.

    Pig, i use to watch my roommate play Dbd he is a survivor only and i thought the game incredible dumb until i saw a match with the pig. And at that point the entity had lol. My favorite thing to do is pick a team part. Pop those gen run from point A to point B. Get grabbed off the gen find that jiggsaw box.

  • TWiXTTWiXT Member Posts: 1,878


    She either makes the whole team suffer from an arguably worse version of NOED for the entire match (it's worse because they all become easier to see, track, and hear as well as insta-down), or they start cleansing and she gets rapid fire ranged damage (albeit limited range). She consistently puts survivors between a rock and a hard place by forcing them to decide whether they want to spend the rest of the game having chases that last half as long as they normally would've, or if they want to upgrade her power to something more deadly. add in the fact that she makes all medkits and healing perks useless to the survivor team, and it's all a Win/Win in my book.


    I've loved this guy since his release when the devs claimed he'd "Break the game", and while many didn't see it that way, if you knew how to build for him, then you could prove the devs statement to be true. Since his recent updates however, he feels fresh again, and his strengths are even more rewarding now than they used to be. He may have suffered a bit in that his build diversity has gone down, but he still has plenty of build variety that changes the way he plays enough that survivors never know what to expect going up against him (at least with me they don't "you were expecting impossible skillchecks Doc, when it was I 'Ninja/sniper/bully/worldwide/bleeder Doc' all along!"). His build potential is still the most versatile in the game in my book, and I love it.

    Leatherface, Nurse when Im doing good, Billy maybe

  • JunebugJunebug Member Posts: 64

    Legion has been a fave forever, and I've been coming back to them because of the cute suzie xmas sweater.

    recently tho I've been getting into clown. Maybe out of spite for the game because I want to get consistent games with what is considered the "worst killer." I love his new cosmetic set so much, and it's actually pretty strong in a chase, since the pink blends in better with the color of the gas and their distorted vision, making it hard for them to figure out if you're coming or going. Plus you can thrash your floppy trunk at the survivors to indicate your disapproval of them once you've got them on the ground :P

    Deathslinger was really neat on PTB and I'm probably going to spend my next 9k on him. No more teabagging at the gate, rat survivors!

  • FichteHiroFichteHiro Member Posts: 711

    I like playing Legion too, Deathslinger is also a lot of fun.

  • Buily09Buily09 Member Posts: 2,362

    Deathslinger and Oni right now are my favorite.

    Oni for Smashing simulator and Deathslinger Is just overall my most Fun Killer to play.

  • JunebugJunebug Member Posts: 64

    Despite how much more I wish deep wound effected the game, I think they're both great because they very drastically change how the whole map works for a killer. Vaults become less safe for survivors, and they're both good at sowing chaos amongst the remaining fodder. I like anything that takes a game with a certain base understanding and with just a few tweaks to that formula it has you playing it entirely differently. Mechanical interplay! Plus, deathslinger's whole sound design is great, makes playing him feel even punchier and dynamic. LOVE that reload noise.

  • FichteHiroFichteHiro Member Posts: 711

    Deathslinger has overall a great design. Legion has a big snowball-effect that they can make, and that's one of the fun parts. Survivors' defenses are almost useless when you're using your power.

  • FichteHiroFichteHiro Member Posts: 711

    Yeah, same. it's just satisfying to down 3 Survivors at the same time with Demon Strike, kinda like Bubba.

  • FichteHiroFichteHiro Member Posts: 711

    Playing Plague is a lot of fun when the Survivors cleanse, I feel like. Doc has been very fun to play as since he got reworked.

  • elvangulleyelvangulley Member Posts: 569

    Doctor i love his looks and his tracking hes the only killer ive played where i feel 100% in control of his powers and that they were useful

  • FichteHiroFichteHiro Member Posts: 711

    Agreed, Doc's been a lot of fun since his release, but his rework made his power even more fun in my opinion.

  • Dr_LoomisDr_Loomis Member Posts: 3,703

    Maybe Leatherface at the moment.

  • FichteHiroFichteHiro Member Posts: 711

    Yeah, Bubba is quite fun to play as. Especially for the memes.

  • KerJuiceKerJuice Member Posts: 1,360

    Trapper against an Altruistic SWF. I just need one in the basement of the shack, and it's like cheese on a board.

    Build: Agitation, Iron Grasp, Sloppy Butcher, and the whip cream- Monstrous Shrine.

  • FichteHiroFichteHiro Member Posts: 711

    Basement build with Trapper is very satisfying. I normally use Mad Grit instead of Monstrous Shrine though.

  • KerJuiceKerJuice Member Posts: 1,360

    Hmmmm...I can see that coming in handy for their body blocking butt buddies.

  • FichteHiroFichteHiro Member Posts: 711

    Yeah, if they think they're safe while I'm carrying someone to the Basement, they get yeeted. It's quite fun to play this build when it works out.

  • InjiInji Member Posts: 1,096

    Wraith and Spirit for me.

  • FichteHiroFichteHiro Member Posts: 711

    I have a lot of fun playing Wraith with the Bone Clapper Add-on so that Survivors hear the Bing Bong frequently and start panicking thinking I'm chasing them.

    It also feels good to predict a Survivor's movement as the Spirit.

  • KerJuiceKerJuice Member Posts: 1,360

    Whenever I get hate mail, I just respond "What's wrong, you didn't like my FUNgeon??" Stole that from Wreck-it Ralph lol.

  • InjiInji Member Posts: 1,096

    Oh definitely. Also both killers give speed when cloaked/invisible and that alone makes me happy.
