I feel naked without Kindred

Since I solo queue I find Kindred to be the single most useful perk on survivor, so I’m trying to get it on all of my survivors.

Likewise with Killer, I feel naked without BBQ. The bloodpoint bonus is so good but knowing what to do and where to go immediately after hooking a survivor is so useful that I also will be putting this on all my killers.

Anyone have a perk that they feel similarly with?

    I usually feel that way about Head On or Any Means Necessary. I got so used to having Head On at one point that I ended up planning my chases around it, and then whenever I wasn't using it I would realize I just put myself in a terrible position and I'm now going to get hit because I forgot that I'm not using it.

    And a single tear runs down my cheek whenever I'm not using Any Means Necessary and I see a good pallet just sitting there.

    For killer, it's probably Deerstalker. I take it for granted when I'm using it, but the second I take it off I miss having it.

    I feel the exact same way with iron will. I go to try and do a scratch mark duke and as soon as I do it I recognise my character is grunting in pain.

    I feel your pain. I'll sometimes sprint over to a locker and then walk away to fake a Head On and make them check it, only to realize that I'm still loudly groaning and they can hear me from a mile away.

    1000% with you on Kindred. I find myself hating to play survivor without it to the point where I will grind for BP with others until I can unlock it with a new survivor.

    I switch killers too often to have found a perk I HAVE to have but some like Ghost Faces thingy where he blocks generators is dang handy or Freddys where he blocks gates.

    I know it sounds weird, but mine is deja vu. I just need to know where the 3 closest gens are and in some maps, where any gens are. :)

    Also, Iron will. Got to keep my survivor quiet.

    For me it's empathy. I get a lot of information on the killers movements just by seeing who and where they are chasing. Chase starts close to me as i approach a gen?....find another gen. Already on a gen and the chase is coming towards me? I can get a few more seconds in and run when i absolutely need to. I definitely feel exposed without it. Not to mention its great to pair up with we'll make it as the heal increase for that perk lasts a good long time, not just the initial unhook, so you can quickly find the injured and heal them way faster than self care can.

    I get the opposite effect because I switch my perks a lot. You can bet your buns since I never run sprint burst, the moment I put it on and get into a game, it's gonna get wasted by me sprinting in the first second of the game.

    for me its spinechill, i have yet to play a survivor game without it, and every single build i make begins with it. i dont think i would be able to play without it

    Kindred is only really good solo play, which is a symptom of the gap between it and SWF

    i just got used to it and run object, much better for information

    If I go in co-op with a friend, I always take DS, BT, DH and Unbreakable. Devs allow to rank up players who dont do the objective, so I have to tank a lot of damage to get someone out. If I dont, then everyone die and leave me with a Billy and gates that spawn in the same corner.

    Why I am still here? Just to suffer..?

    when i saw the rework on it i used it but then reread the perk it sucks for me, like it should work when other survivors get hooked they can also see not just me.

    Im a solo after all.
