Killer mains who's your go to.

I'm new to the forum. I just recently got the nightmare edition. Birthday gift from my wife. I started using huntress from the start. And I clicked with her. She's fun to use. Has a few flaws. But who doesn't. The Dr it took a minute to get used to. But both are level 23.atm.and I do pretty well with both. Freddy is good cannibal too. But I get more hate when I use the huntress. I don't believe in camping. I hook you then move on. Terrorizing everyone .

    Doctor, Wraith, Trapper, Hag. At low ranks especially, you can play mind games on survivors.

    I used to main Huntress,got her to prestige 2...but I dunno...it started to not feel viable for me at higher ranks. I think that's why I switched but I can't remember. Then I mained Doctor. He can be pretty good in terms of survivor visibility,lots of things really. I used to main survivor but the queue got too long.

    Now I kinda just jump around trying to level up everyone. I buy a new guy or two every month. I really like Spirit. I enjoy the ones with a speed element. Deathslinger is interesting if you like Huntress. Really enjoy Ghost Face. If you like stealth he can be really fun. I just got The Legion today. He definitely doesn't seem great but maybe I'm not using him right lol. I don't like any of the slower killers at all.

    Glad to see you went with Huntress first choice though. You don't have to camp with her to be effective. I don't see why you'd get hate. That's what you are supposed to do lol. This community can be very toxic. But there are a lot of guys especially here on the forums that are really helpful and knowledgeable. And there's a good few that are very sportsmanlike and against any of the hate

    Nurse or Hag. Both have steep learning curves, especially Nurse.

    Nurse can teleport through pretty much everything. Those pesky pallets and windows? Lol, just blink to the other side. She takes a lot of practice though.

    Hag is super fun. You place up to 10 traps and teleport to them when survivors step on them. It's fun to prepare your "web" and then rapidly do a ton of damage.

    I play all Killers (my lowest is a tie between Hillbilly, Clown, Plague, Ghost Face and Deathslinger, all at 35), but if I had to pick who I'd prefer to play more than any others, it would be either Doctor or Oni. Doctor has always been fun for me (even before his rework), and he's one of my Killers at level 50 (the others being Trapper and Spirit, because Archives). Oni is not that high (39), but he just clicks with me. That and his very existence has become part of an inside joke between me and my friends (his name sounds identical to my old Chem teacher, who is fully aware of it too).

    Doctor's been my go to Killer since 2017.

  • SpookyStabbySpookyStabby Member Posts: 621

    GhostFace, Pig and Legion in that order. I LOVE fast paced chases, hide and seek styled hunting and because of them basically just being ordinary human just in masks I kinda feel thematically tied with survivors. Hope you love the game!

  • PrettyFaceKatePrettyFaceKate Member Posts: 1,706

    Lately, it's Oni. It used to be Billy. Nurse, Myers and Demo are up there too.

  • OmegaXIIOmegaXII Member Posts: 2,060

    Mine is Doc, Freddy, and Legion.

    Before you say anything, no, i don't specifically choose these killers just to annoy survivors. I'm actually a killer that follows survivor rule book (Kind of :))

  • HopesfallHopesfall Member Posts: 828

    If I need a pip.. Spirit/Doctor

    for fun.. Myers & Hag

  • aregularplayeraregularplayer Member Posts: 906

    You don't believe in camping? I already love you. You must be such a nice guy. Ty for existing.

  • EntropiusEntropius Member Posts: 62

    I play the weaker killers like Clown frequently, but when an SWF tells me I'm bad for losing to them, abusing god loops and dead harding for distance, I will immediately play Freddy.

  • bkillercbkillerc Member Posts: 142


    was an old Freddy main and now a new Freddy main.

    occasionally Wraith and Pig if I have some decent addons.

    Doc and legion if I’m point farming.

  • Mister_HoldoutMister_Holdout Member Posts: 3,144

    I don't have a go-to killer anymore.

    You never know which killer might get nerfed these days.

    That said, I'll probably main Deathslinger since I enjoy shooting mechanics.

    Always leave last person a hatch.

    If one of survivors leaves during the match you have to play nice and guve up couple of gens.

    Never chase a person who was on a hook less then two minute ago.

    Never slug.

    Never camp.

    Never bring franklin's demise, pop goes the weasel, or any perk which gives exposed status to survivors

    and NEVER bring memnto mori to a match

    Stick at least to those simple rules and i can assure you that you get good at the game really fast and earn a little respect from noble survivor master race

    oh and yes, go with nurse she fun to play against

  • theArashitheArashi Member Posts: 995

    Just enjoy your game and play however you want to.

    Oni is very fun to play if you ever want something new. Trapper is very good.

    Don't listen to whoever tells you their imagined rules.

  • RaulilloRaulillo Member Posts: 179


    She is the top skill ceiling for killers imho.

    It's so satisfying when you hit your ability through a tiny hole, or when you predict where survivors are moving to and hit them from the other side of the map. Her mindgames in short loops are fun and the best of her is that the only thing that stops you from make an outplay to the survivor is the mere existence of big objects. And you can use iridescent hatchets to play like a sniper, 1 powerful shot but if you miss you have to reload and reposition because if they now where you are, they can easily react to the throws.

    Also survivors don't usually bully you on postgame chat if you hit them all hatchets, predicting their lateral dashes or hit them with parabolic throws.

    The other killers are fun to play, but none as the huntress <3

  • MadLordJackMadLordJack Member Posts: 8,815

    The Plague. She is easily my favourite killer. I'd reccoment getting her for her perks alone, but if you enjoy Huntress you will probably love Plague as well. Super difficult killer, though

  • TodgeweihtTodgeweiht Member Posts: 3,666

    My go to is Demo, but I wouldnt recommend him if you are still learning the game, he is not ultra hard like other killers but his shred is quite punishing and can be really unfun if you miss it a lot and portal placement is a bit clunky.

    My second to go is legion, they can inflict damage fast and stall the game quite a lot, but his power has a long ass stun that gets triggered just by failing a hit, again, I wouldn't recommend him if you are still a beginner, they are really, really punishing with mistakes.

    And lastly, but not least, its Oni, Oni is really, really fun, his power is a bit complicated but his demon rush (or whatever it was called) Is quite easy to use, well, at least if you are not getting looped, I would personally recommend it to a beginner that wants a different experience.

    lately ive played a LOT of Deathslinger.

    he takes some time getting used to, but he is one hell of a fun killer when you get him to work.

  • chaosdriverchaosdriver Member Posts: 74

    Pig! Her built in slowdown (traps) give you time to get a few hooks in (if not a 4k) before all the gens pop xD

  • oxygenoxygen Member Posts: 2,743

    I play pretty much all of them depending on what I feel like, but my top 3 favorites will probably always be Huntress, Trapper and... 3rd slot is sort of on rotation actually, at the moment it's Hag and sometimes it's Doctor, Wraith or Nurse.

    No particular reason, I've always played them all and I've just figured out they're the ones I enjoy the most 👍️

  • Raven014Raven014 Member Posts: 4,188

    Legion is for me, although I have been having fun with most killers (all except Nurse and Billy). I have been going to Deathslinger as a close second as of late.

  • thegatekeeperthegatekeeper Member Posts: 12

    Ive tryed alot of different killers. But huntress. When she sings the lullaby. Your in trouble. I've got better with her hatchets. Hitting someone from long range while also on the run. Takes lots of practice. But she's fun to use.

  • ImJustABeeBroImJustABeeBro Member Posts: 94

    Been a Demmie main ever sense he came out of portals are great for map awareness and sherd is great for baiting.

    I play all the Killers, but Huntress is hands down my favorite.

    Like you, I just enjoy playing as her the most.

    Right now it's Demo or Doctor, but I mess around with Deathslinger and Billy from time to time. I used to main Myers but after these god awful dedicated servers came out, and the ruin nerf, I've had absolutely no desire to play him since. His stalk is so broken it's unreal. Completely unacceptable that him, GhostFace and Nurse have been this broken for over 6 months now.

  • AnevianAnevian Member Posts: 47

    Been playin nothing but slinger since his release except when I'm doing challenges or dailies. Easily my new main. Other than cotton eye joe I like stealth myers with monitor and dead rabbit and bubba with nemesis + pwyf.

    Welcome to the game and the forums!

    My go-to killer is Hag. I love planning ahead, putting traps where I expect the survivors to go, imagining their routes and how best to cut them off. I also enjoy Trapper for the same reason. :)
