Due to latency issues in the PTB, we have decided to postpone the server hit validation test until after the update releases on the live version of the game. We will let you know when the test will take place as soon as we can. Thank you all for your patience.

If you could add a perk to the game... What would it be?

Remember, it must be a fair and balanced perk.

    [Hex: Bleachicus Maximus]

    All survivors clothing, skin, and hair becomes the brightest of whites while this totem remains.

  • Sasori_puppetSasori_puppet Member Posts: 1,416

    hex: divine thiccness

    Make all the survivors in the trial have a different animation then the same copy+paste one

    Failed Strike or Breakable

    Once per match the perks Decisive Strike or Unbreakable will not activate. The survivor perk will be consumed and unable to be activated again.

  • WaffleyumboyWaffleyumboy Member Posts: 6,652

    A perk that warps your position could be cool. Or just a perk that lets you farm flashlights from chests.

    Idk, from the top of my head...


    Evil curses are born as the Survivors continue making their escape.

    Every time a Generator is repaired, a random Dull Totem becomes a Hex Totem.

    As long as the Hex Totem is up, it will afflict all Survivors with a Status Effect, picked randomly from this list:

    • Blindness
    • Exhausted
    • Hindered
    • Oblivious

    A Status Effect cannot be chosen a second time.

    If all 4 Status Effects are/were in play and the 5th Generator is repaired with a Dull Totem still out there, Jinxed destroys that last Totem and makes all 4 Status Effects permanent.

    If no Dull Totems are available when a Generator is repaired, it will be skipped.

    Again, idk, spontaneous ideas usually don't take balance into consideration...

    Had this Perk idea for a while, still think it would be cool.


    You have a tendency to avoid heavy combat. Your slow vault and slow locker entry and exit speeds are increased by 15% with noises reduced by 30/40/50%.

  • RetryRetry Member Posts: 36

    For Survivors, I've always felt that a perk that temporarily increases the speed of someone you have fully healed/unhooked would be neat.

    For Killers, a Hex that makes all totems look like lit totems would be a fun gimmick - making them all appear dull would be a thousand times better, as making them all appear lit might be detrimental, but I'm not sure how fair that would be. I've always wondered how that would play out.

  • gamemaster1gamemaster1 Member Posts: 64

    I say that there should be one that basically grants you invincibility for 5 seconds but are seen by the killer during that period for 2 seconds. Also they can do it on command.

    Scooby Doo Lockers

    Operate like doors in a Scooby Doo cartoon. You enter one locker, but when you step out of the locker you step out of a different one. The catch is you step out from one within the killers terror radius. I would love to see survivors that hide in lockers all game have to pay a price for it.

  • EvilJoshyEvilJoshy Member Posts: 1,427

    Paybacks a bitch

    Any survivor standing near the exit gate for longer than 5 seconds immediately gets taken by the entity.

  • AvisDeeneAvisDeene Member Posts: 1,952

    For Survivors:

    1. Rapid Back Flips- backflip to safety upon taking damage. You become immune to all attacks while back flipping. You will cease to back flip when Killer starts a new chase. Works once per match.
    2. Camp no more- When a Killer camps while there are still 3 or more genterators, the Survivor will fly kick the killer in the face, stunning them for 7 seconds allowing them to safely unhook.

    For Killers:

    1. Maniacal Laughter- You cackle with glee after landing an attack. Your laughter sends a chill down the spines of all nearby survivors, causing them to stop all action and to flee in terror.
    2. Black Hole- You place a black hole onto a generator after damaging it. The black hole prompts the survivor with an extremely difficult skill check. Failing the skill check causes the survivor to be teleported to the furthest completed generator.
  • GodotGodot Member Posts: 278

    Not gonna lie, this one's pretty good even if it's from the top of your head. I'd like this perk. Maybe it would be somewhat annoying as Survivor but oh well.

  • IvaldiIvaldi Member Posts: 439


    Allows the survivor to lay down and crawl at 100% movement speed.

    trip & run

    While in a chase, allows the survivor to trip another survivor slowing them by 50% for 4 seconds. Causes the exhaustion effect for 60 seconds.

    Voice Throw

    Any time an effect would cause a survivor to shout, their notification appears in a random location on the map. 40 second cooldown.

    Killer Perk

    Cry for daylight: Allows the killer get into a fetal position and cries. Every time a pallet hits you, gain one token for sensitivity. It can be allow to be stacked up to 3 times. First one, you have tears in your eyes. The second one is to get blurry vision and sweat around your eyes. And the final token makes you go on the ground and cry.

    Don't worry, tomorrow is another day...

    Description - If you are in or part of an SWF group, you instantly perish upon entering the fog.

    A Perk which doubles your BP but gives you the Oblivious and Blindness Effect troughout the game.

    It would be a better challenge Perk than No Mither.

    Perception Disorder:

    - You start the match with the Oblivious and Blindness Status Effects for the duration of the Trial.

    - Bloodpoint gains are increased by 50/75/100 % and will be gained after the Trial.

  • FFirebranddFFirebrandd Member Posts: 140

    I'm bad with names, but Here's what it does.

    For each totem remaining on the map, gain a token. Each Token slows repairing Generators by 3/4/5%

  • Big_Trash_PandaBig_Trash_Panda Member Posts: 67

    Killer Perk - Social Distancing

    Description - Only one survivor can work on a gen at a time.

    To Balance it gen work by survivors increased by 5-10% ?

  • TruthTheDeceiverTruthTheDeceiver Member Posts: 340

    Playing With Fire

    After vaulting 5 times during a chase, your movement speed is increased by 5%/6%/7% for 20 seconds.

    Cooldown of 20 seconds. Cannot be used while Exhausted.

  • luka2211luka2211 Member Posts: 1,387

    Survivor: Live and die

    When within 5 meters from the hooked survivor, live and die activates. When live and die is active, during the unhooking animation, the survivor whispers to the hooked survivor: "Gid gud, noob" and then places the survivor back on the hook, thus killing the survivor instantly.

    Perk name : [Touch Down] = Put survivor into dying state before healing after being hooked below 60 sec.. all gen add repair progress 3,4,5% from last touch.. if gen have zero progress still increase the repair progress ( so basically u need to down another survivor beside the injured one )


    • counter swf :

    For survivors, I'd like a perk that allows to create scratchmarks in a straight line in front of you. It would allow a lot of cool mindgames.

    For killers, I'd love one that applis the Oblivious status effect on survivors in some way. It's a cool status effect, but being relatively new it's underused.

  • DelsKibaraDelsKibara Member Posts: 2,042

    Hex: Bloody Good Day

    Injured Survivors will bleed more frequently, leaving a trail of red blood behind them. This effect is active for as long as the Hex totem stands. The effect lingers for 40/50/60 seconds after the totem is destroyed.

    (Tracking blood is easier than tracking scratch marks, that's why this perk is better as a Hex perk because it could render stealth moot.)

    Take them, not me!

    When you are injured, in a chase, and a healthy survivor is within a 32 meter radius from you, press the action button to inflict Exposed on the healthy survivor as well as notify the killer of their presense by showing the survivor's aura for 10 seconds. Grants you the Endurance effect for 5 seconds after activating. May only be used once for the whole match.

    (Sacrificing your teammate to possibly get the killer off your tail, if that fails, activates an Endurance effect for only 5 seconds giving you just enough time to escape. Also quite possibly the Ultimate Sandbag perk if whoever runs it wants to be toxic rather than devious.)

    Have a teachable doctor perk idea

    Static Shock When a survivor is wiggling on a killer the more they wiggle the more electricity is built up this electricity is converted into 1 static blast that releases upon the saving of the electrified survivor


    Static power the more a survivor wiggles while on the back of a killer it would charge up the killers ability

    Don't Farm Me

    Upon seeing a teammate unhooking you in an unfavorable situation, your irritation lets you overcome your weakness and press the active ability button to kick the survivor in the face instead of being unhooked and will prevent them from unhooking you for 5/10/15 seconds. The entity likes the idea of you kicking your fellow survivors for being stupid and will stop fighting against you during the struggle phase briefly to let you kick them in the face. Don't Farm Me also lets you see the nearest survivor's unhooking related perks to better inform your decision to kick them in the face, like BT, Babysitter or We'll Make It. Don't Farm Me can be used an unlimited number of times.

    notes: I think the kick should only happen after the unhook bar is filled since sometimes survivors like to tap the unhook button to bait a lunge and then dodge and force the killer to take the cooldown while they run away.

  • JoelwinoJoelwino Member Posts: 539

    I think that could be applied to Hex: The Third Seal, maybe then it would finally be a viable perk.

  • Awkward_FiendAwkward_Fiend Member Posts: 336

    Noise Conscious

    Sounds from walking are reduced by 75%

    Sounds from running are reduced by 5/15/25%

    Sounds walking or running while in grass are further reduced by 0/25/50%

    Hex: Fog of War

    While this hex is active, replace the audio terror radius with a visual fog. The closer to the killer the more dence the fog. The fog obscures survivor vision (either making everything darker or like clown bottles).

    The survivor who cleanses this totem becomes oblivious for 10/20/30 seconds.

    (Actually this would be a cool killer concept as well i think. A deadly silent ghost or something.)

  • MegaWaffleMegaWaffle Member Posts: 4,006

    Perk ideas...no.


    I just want everything in this scene to be implemented in game but with the Saminations "Hookers" and survivors.
