Which 2 killers should I buy next?

I currently have 1700 Auric cells, so I want to use them to purchase 2 killers while saving the rest for when Pyramid Head comes out. The 5 killers I'm most interested in are:

Legion, Deathslinger, Pig, Ghostface, and Plague

So which 2 killers from that list should I get? I'm mostly looking for killers that have somewhat good perks while also being fun to play as.

Edit: So after seeing some of the replies, I decided on getting Plague, but still open to recommendations on what other killer I should buy.

    Plague brings Corrupt Intervention, which gives you 2 Minutes of 3 Gen blocked off, giving you time to you know, prepare.

    Plague also brings in Infectious Fright, which can provide some great slug pressure.

    Deathslinger....I bought Deathslinger and I still just Huntress, he's eh....

    Pig is just fun, and she brings Surveillance and Make Your Choice.

    Fun to Play:

    All the ones you listed are fun to play. Pig's the most fun IMO. If you're good with Aiming, Deathslinger is a LOT of fun too.

    Good Perks:

    Plague has really good perks. Corrupt Intervention is one of the best perks in the game. Infectious Fright is fantastic too. Dark Devotion isn't terrible. She probably has the best set of perks of the lot.

    Second best in terms of perks is probably... Legion for Discordance and Iron Maiden. Mad Grit isn't awful either.

    Ghostface is probably third. Thrilling Tremors and I'm All Ears are great. Furtive Chase is meh.

    Fourth best for perks is probably Pig Surveillance and Make Your Choice are great perks. Hanged Man's Trick is probably the worst perk in the game right now

    Deathslinger has the worst perks overall. Retribution is good, but the other two are pretty useless.

    I would personally say Legion and Deathslinger, because I find them both enjoyable to play, and moderately powerful in most situations (their only problem being larger maps like Mother's Dwelling). Legion has good perks as well! And I personally enjoy playing Deathslinger more than Huntress, as I find his harpoon to be more effective when I'm being looped (since you can quickscope!). People can say what they want about Deathslinger, but his harpoon is better than Huntress's hatchets on a lot of loops, since you can pull Survivors around many of them!

    I personally dislike playing Plague, Pig and Ghostface, so I can't recommend them on a personal basis -- but Ghostface can be fun on certain maps, and people enjoy playing Pig as well. In terms of perks, Plague has two very good perks (Infectious Fright and Corrupt Intervention), so she's not bad to buy for perks -- but she's not very good in terms of point gain, and good Survivors can easily give her a thorough stomping. Thrilling Tremors from Ghostface is a fine perk as well, and I'm All Ears works nicely on Killers like Pyramid Head and Nurse.

    For perks, I would say that Plague and Legion are your best bet, with Discordance and Corrupt Intervention both coming from them, but for fun I would say Deathslinger hands down! Legion is fun if you want to be a stabby kid and keep everyone perpetually injured, which can lead to some first hook suicides and D/Cs.... but he's still enjoyable to play, nevertheless 😋 But if you're in doubt, just watch some YouTubers play those Killers and see what appeals to you the most! Everyone enjoys Killers differently than others do!

    i would suggest Pig and Ghost Face because the others you can get with shards.

    i find both really fun and the Perks I’m all Ears and Surveillance helped me very much while going for adept and I still use them

  • HealsBadManHealsBadMan Member Posts: 479

    Ultimately depends on what you consider a fun playstyle. If you like FPS games, Deathslinger is good. If you like stealth, Pig and Ghostface are good.

    If youre just looking for perks, I'd suggest Pig- Surveillance has good synergy with Surge and Ruin, as well as any perks that involve kicking generators. MYC is also really good if you learn how to use it. Hangman's Trick is niche and anti-sabo, so it's not as good as the last two. As far as the others... Plague has Corrupt Intervention (really good to slow gen rush at the start), Infectious Fright (good for snowballs), and Dark Devotion (tricky, but also good with certain perks). The other three Killers have good perks, but the two I mentioned will give you the most 'good' perks.

    Other perks:

    Legion: Discordance is great against gen rushing, Iron Maiden and Mad Grit are very niche.

    Ghostface: I'm All Ears is pretty good in jungle gyms, Furtive Chase is meh and Thrilling Tremors helps protect gens temporarily.

    Deathslinger: Hex: Retribution is great with Totem builds, Gearhead needs synergy perks like PGTW, and Dead Man's Switch isn't very good w/o Nemesis or Furtive Chase (maximize Obsession hooks).

    So I decided that one of the killers I'll purchase is Plague. I'm still open for recommendations on what other killer I should get.

  • bjorksnasbjorksnas Member Posts: 2,452

    Pig and ghostface, But give time between them and buy pig first because ghost face takes a month of mentally preparing yourself to be a terrible person. They are both only purchasable by auric cells while everyone else can be grinded out while you enjoy your new killers.

  • idekanamelolidekanamelol Member Posts: 33

    I would get pig or GF. I only buy licensed killers with cells since you can get the other for free. I’d personally go pig as she has better perks and is more fun imo

  • XergeXerge Member Posts: 925

    Ghostface is a good killer, fun to play, even more fun if you use map offerings for Lery's, The Game and such. I personally use thrilling tremors in a lot of builds, it has good synergy with pop and ruin, whichever you prefer.

  • RydogRydog Member Posts: 3,160

    Legion and Plague for the perks. Ghostface for a relatively competitive killer.

    Discordance is a great perk, comes with legion.

  • PigMainClaudettePigMainClaudette Member Posts: 3,842

    Pig is fantastic to play in terms of fun, and also more at mid-ranks.

    That being said, it also is a case of what your usual killer pool is like.

    When it comes to perks. Plague has two very useful ones, Corrupt and Fright. Corrupt intervention can be useful on a fair number of killers who need some set up time like trapper or for certain builds, like fungoose no add on ghostface build. Fright pair up with monitor and abuse on say a Oni, is a jolly good old time. Fright can also be useful on Myers, since he can one shot, which can help him to snowball in tier 3. Dark devotion is a fun perk to run, if you like scaring people.

    Pig can sneak around while crouch, has a dash attack which can be useful for mind games or at certain loops. Their bear traps are rng. The survivor might get one off first try or have to run around the whole map to get one off. Surveillance is a perk that can combo well with others. Surge, ruin, ect. Which can help you keep track of gens and know if they are being work on or not. Make your choice, it can be useful if you are able to find the person who unhooked their fellow survivor, with in the time limit. If you run into survivors time and time again, who save someone and than fade away like a ghost for the next 40 to 60 seconds, might not be the most helpful for you.

    Legion the 28 stab wound killer. Mad grit is fun for the memes. Iron maiden is the anti dwight perk. Rip Dwights and their lockers. Discordance is useful for a number of different builds, since it can tell you if two people are on a gen. Which can be very useful. Legion power is you go fast like a edgy sonic and stab someone, which than triggers the ability to know where others are with in your terror radius. If you miss with an attack while in your power, you lose the whole power and get stun for a few seconds.

    DeathSlinger, he has a gun and shoots people, than reels them in like a fisher man. Others have already detail his perks. So there you go.

    Do you wanna be batman who stalks from tall buildings before leaping down shadow of mordor style for the finishing blow, make gags about your character secretly being a evil Danny Phantom? Do you wanna sneak up on survivors, lean from corners and than take them down in one careful plan shot or 99% them for later. Do you wanna make gags or jokes like, i ain't afraid of no ghost. Than ghostface is for you. His perks are i'm all ears. Which can help you to become god and know every thing a survivor will do for 6 seconds, when they fast vault a window or pallet. Making you seem like the king of games, mind games that is, not life or death shadow realm card games. Thrilling tremors, which can be useful for a lot of killers, freddy, spirit, ect. It can help you get an idea of which gens are being worked on and which gens are not. Can be very useful having an idea of where to go. Furtive chase, well i think if you are going for a obsession build, Nemesis from Oni would be the better choice.

    Of course if you are going to get anyone. I would wait until the new dlc comes out. Since they might have a sale on the characters you are interested in. So you might be able to pick up more of them or save some cells.

    I recommend getting Deathslinger or Pig. Pig has two good perks (Surveillance and Make Your Choice), playing her as a stealth killer is enjoyable. Deathslinger has interesting perks (Gearhead and Hex: Retribution), I recommend him because he is fun to play (Huntress style). Good choice with Plague.

  • Spooky13Spooky13 Member Posts: 1,405

    I'd say Ghostface and Plague. They is probably the strongest killer here, followed by Deathslinger, Plague, Pig, and Legion in that order. Plague has the best perks of the bunch and is a great middle of the road killer strength wise. Deathslinger is pretty strong and great fun, but his perks are absolutely worthless outside of a few situational builds. So yeah, I'd say Plague and Ghostface or maybe Deathslinger instead of Plague if you've already got her perks in the Shrine or don't care about her perks.

  • Dwight_FairfieldDwight_Fairfield Member Posts: 3,907

    I'd go with Plague and Pig.

  • CashelP14CashelP14 Member Posts: 3,628

    Bubba would like you to choose him if you haven't got him already. He has excellent perks and is a beast to play. I will say if you don't own Oni or Myers (you need their perks) then don't get Bubba.

    I'd say Pig or Legion since they are the most fun of the rest

  • SnakeSound222SnakeSound222 Member Posts: 3,943

    Plague is must have. Fun, strong, and has three good to great perks. You made a good choice buying her.

    I'd look at Pig and Legion's perks and see if you want Surveillance and/or Make Your Choice from Pig or Discordance from Legion. If you do get Legion, then do not get Discordance past tier 1. It gives you more frequent updates on the gen at that tier.

  • GreenPufferFishGreenPufferFish Member Posts: 495

    personally i would not buy ghostface with cels buy him in store because if you do it like that you get a free cosmetic for him

  • WaldbeereWaldbeere Member Posts: 101

    I would say the perks depend on your playstyle and your favoried killers. In my opinion the most useful perks in this order: Plague > Pig > Ghostface > Desthslinger


    Corrupt Intervention is a strong perk. It buys you some time for getting the first hook until this first generator is done or maybe for preparing traps in the beginning of the game.

    I would use Infectious Frights for a slugging build. If you don't like builds like this it's maybe not that important.


    Make Your Choice can be used pretty good on every killer who has a high mobility to a hook. If this is your playstyle.

    Although I don't use it that much I found that Surveillance is also a pretty good perk.


    I really like I'm All Ears. Some players say you don't need it if you're experienced killer, but I still like it. Works good on Nurse or Huntress.

    I use BBQ instead if Thrilling Tremors. If you don't need BBQ this could be a choice.

    But if you want to know which killer is the most fun to you, that's totally up to you ☺️
