A message to killer mains, how do you counter 360's?

Hello fellow killer mains. How do you guys counter 360s/window techs/locker techs/ dumb tech and things like that??? I am looking for some tips because I am a rank 10 survivor main but I am starting to play a lot of killer.

    To counter 360s just watch them do it then hit them

    to counter window tech just look behind you everytime you vault

    Idk what locker tech is

    To counter dumb tech just dont lunge

    Dumb tech? Whats that?

  • IMhereRUNIMhereRUN Member Posts: 605

    ^^this. Don’t Lunge, keep FOV.

    If you’re getting 360’d very often, you’re playing on a sensitivity too low to maintain field of view on the survivor.

    Dumb tech is when a survivor stuns you with a pallet then vaults it "through you" to cause confusion or just simply "to troll" As a survivor I do this a lot because usually the killer doesn't know that you vaulted it, its all about timing...

    I play on a very high sensitivity. If they can some how manage to avoid the god tier flick then I'll just stand and watch for a second until they are right in front of me.

    for 360s, just wait for them to do it and then hit them on console. For pc, you should be able to track their movement and hit them easier, so you can just lunge (unless you have a low sensitivity)

    when somebody window techs, just moonwalk to where you want to go but look behind you to make sure they didnt do it. if they did, just follow them

    with a dumb tech, just dont lunge. try to listen to their footsteps and follow them with that

    whats a locker tech?

  • HellDescentHellDescent Member Posts: 4,505

    Take a step back for 360. Window bug can't really be countered atm since sound is complete garbage

    step to the side to block their rotation.. or just wait for them to finish their little juke and then swing. Dumb tech- once you know it exists you shouldn't fall for it. Window tech - vault and moonwalk for a sec to check if the survivor has gone through you; also look at your feet in case they decided to remain "inside" you and ran in the same direction as you. Locker tech - not much you can do about that aside from finding and downing/chasing away the second survivor

    Not lunging for 360. The window thing is annoying but most of the time not moving immediately if you didn't see then run anywhere is enough. It can be a free slap if you catch it. Never had anyone actually dumb tech me. If someone dodges and attack with a locker usually they won't get too far regardless, just buys their team more time.

    Be patient, take a step back, wait for it to end, smack them.

    The one that gets me is the little juke they do that cheeses the auto aim, pisses me right tf off.

    Nothing you can do to counter locker tech, if it happens to you once in a game, theyre going to do it again. When they try it again anticipate it and fake that youre going to open the locker, when the guy steps out go after him.

    If you think theyre going to window tech as soon as you step through turn and look, if you dont see scratches go the other way

    Locker tech is when the killer grabs a survivor from a locker, and another survivor gets a fl save from it.

    There is nothing the killer can do other than look for the survivor with the flashlight, or just leave the survivor in the locker.

  • Dead_by_GadflyDead_by_Gadfly Member Posts: 3,774

    Sorry but this is bad advice. If you do this youre going to get juked to high heaven by the better survivors that know how to cheese the auto aim.

    Patience is key. Wait for it to end, smack them with quicj attack. You should be smelling their farts so lunge isnt necessary

  • SonzaishinaiSonzaishinai Member Posts: 6,183

    Like most here said don't lunge and follow them for 360

    And hope you have a decent pc, i know that on my old toaster that ran this game at 20 fps 360's were a nightmare and bassicly a cointoss

  • xBEATDOWNSxxBEATDOWNSx Member Posts: 629

    One thing that works for me, especially if they managed to do it before, is to simply stop and back up a step or two then swing. Survivors tend to not expect that and it makes the 360 into nothing more than a waste of energy.

  • Real_CheesusReal_Cheesus Member Posts: 20

    Others have said it, but yeah just waiting out the 360 and then hitting them once they are all turned around and trying to regain their bearings is generally how I do it. 360s are very inconsistent, however, and survivors (on console) are generally much better off doing a severe wiggle back and forth since that will more consistently throw off the killer's auto-aim.

  • Stitch7833Stitch7833 Member Posts: 632

    up your sensitivity, the higher it is the easier killer is in general. you can also hit most 360`s as i noticed i couldnt turn as fast as they was able to run around me on lo sensitivity. or step back a little bit and basic a quick attack, sadly if theres bad connection (on console) the auto aim can still f you over sometimes but thats more of the wiggle issue instead of a 360

  • BossBoss Member, Trusted Posts: 13,578

    Idk, i just follow them with my mouse and hit them when i know i will hit successfully.

  • OBXOBX Member Posts: 854

    On PS4 I run killer sensitivity at 85 and don’t have too many issues with 360’s, though when the servers are janky a survivor can go from in front of you to behind you in 1-2 frames so it can be disorienting. Play at the highest sensitivity you are able to. Until bhvr ups the FPS on console it will always be a bit tricky. Also, pay attention to survivors habits, most will always turn the same direction.

  • KycerKycer Member Posts: 337

    oh.. i never even knew this was a tech.. and nobody has even tried it on me.. which is a shame because i run Enduring on like %80 of my killers as a basic perk lol

  • edgarpoopedgarpoop Member Posts: 5,067

    Your sensitivity should always be maxed unless you're playing Billy. There's no benefit to a lower sensitivity. Get used to playing at maxed out sens

  • SpookyStabbySpookyStabby Member Posts: 621

    Hi-hi, fellow Killer! I just stand and watch them while singing the Chorus to Queen of Disaster by Lana Del Rey and laughing as I poke them after. :3

  • PigMainBigBrainPigMainBigBrain Member Posts: 1,810

    360's Press S and swing in case they're trying to body press you.

    Window tech... look down after you vault a window.

    Locker tech....open the locker instead of swinging at it.

  • RivynRivyn Member Posts: 2,966

    360 = back up. I sometimes lose sight of them if I try and keep the camera on them, so simply back up two or three steps. Much easier.

    Window tech = tilt your camera to the ground when vaulting. So as to catch sight of them, be it their pants, Dwights bells, or Blendettes hair.

    Locker tech = Bit tricky. If they were recently unhooked, then it could be DS. Either wait it out, or move on. If they're popping in to avoid an attack, then they're going to pop out during the animation. Sometimes you can catch them in a grab. Or bait them out. They could have Head On, so keep to the side of the locker. Move in, then back out in order to attempt the bait.

    I just sit there and watch them spin in circles like a clown then hit them haha

  • StutteringSpartanStutteringSpartan Member Posts: 243

    I have sensitivity maxed, spin with them and m1.


  • OutcastEricOutcastEric Member Posts: 495

    I play on xbox so its not always super consistent but i miss probably 1 out of every 40 swings now or somewhere around there. I put my sensitivity to 75 because the new 100 is too much for my liking. Just wait for them to stop trying to juke and center them in your screen lol. They can only spin so many times before inevitably panicing and try to go the opposite direction. Thats when you swing

  • JHondoJHondo Member Posts: 1,079

    I play in a controller on PC and what I do for jukes/360s is do a turning lunge. I'll start a lunge then turn the same direction they do as the attack happens. It's mostly effective but sometimes they'll quickly turn the other direction from me and I miss.
