What do you guys think?

I’ve got 500 auric cells and the only 3 killers I don’t have yet are Plague, Clown, and Pig. Who do you think I should get? I play on console btw.

    If you're looking for fun, Plague. She also has some great perks for most killers.

    Plauge, she has amazing perks

    Plague is the best out of those 3, but hard to learn. She also has good perks, 2 of them being meta.

    Clown is not a good killer unless you are a fan of the design, but he has Pop goes the Weasel which is a meta killer perk.

    Pig is an ok killer that's fun to play, but her perks are kinda mediocre.

    Pig. You can get the other two with Shards.

    Clown has Bamboozle and PGTW (PGTW is considered to be meta), but isn’t that great of a Killer.

    All of Plague’s teachables (Corrupt Intervention, Infectious Fright, and Dark Devotion) are good, with two of them (Corrupt and Infectious) being considered meta. She is also the strongest Killer out of the three here.

    Pig has Surveillance and Make Your Choice, which can be good by themselves, but rely on Killer/perk synergy to really shine. She’s an ok Killer at best though.

    For me, it would be down to if you want one of the best perks in the game (Pop Goes The Weasel) but a Killer that struggles in certain areas or if you want three good perks (two of which are meta) and a stronger Killer. If I didn’t list a teachable, it’s because that perk isn’t really that good.

    Also, don’t buy just the Killer. Buy the entire chapter. The chapters are normally $8 USD on consoles while the characters are $5 USD each. It’s a better deal because you don’t know if you’ll want to play the Survivor sometime in the future.

    But then you'll never get to 2000 :(

    As others have said, can buy pig only with auric cells, can get the other two with iridescent shards.

    Ironically of the three I think Plague and Clown are more valuable but that's strictly due to perks. Plague will give you corrupt intervention which is old Hex: Ruin 0.5. Best generator perk for trap and setup killers in the game. Dark Devotion is fun to play with but it's pretty meh, but infectious fright is devastating in the hands of someone like Oni, Hillbilly, or a T3 Myers as they can daisy chain insta-downs very effectively with it.

    Clown also boasts some really good perks. Coulrophobia is crap unless you're running a terror radius doctor build or something, but Bamboozle is a great learning perk for lower ranked killers to let them cut off window loops easier and Pop Goes the Weasel is hands down the best generator regression perk in the game right now.

    Pig doesn't have terrible perks. Make your choice is definitely the best of the bunch, an insta-down on an unhooking player every 60 seconds can be very good. Hangman's trick was setup to be the counter to the new sabotage meta but then they got scared and nerfed it into the ground again, and then surveillance is a very nice perk to track survivors and what generators they are working on. Surveillance is probably best paired with the new ruin, every time you chase survivors off generators they turn white, if they return to work on them they go yellow, can be very good.

    Overall you should look to own all three eventually due to their perks but there's no rush, keep playing and enjoy the game :)
