right now I'm thinking about trying to learn Huntress but the only thing stopping me is that I'm on console.
I've also tried Oni but he just doesn't feel right to me.
Does anybody have any suggestions of who I can main next
Try Oni again, he's very fun to play and actually good, I just had to increase the sensibility to make him better, but you can use Freddy and Spirit if you want easy wins
New bubba from what I've seen is just slower old billy
Oni Or Ghostface
Billy is still playable. You just have to think before you use your chainsaw now. I like Legion, Freddy and Clown. Those are my favorite killers.
Edit: Forgot to add Pig. She is super fun to play!
I just tried a couple of games and even without any addons you give survivors a really hard time.
You should try oni again is a lot like billy exept he take some time before he get is power.
If you want something diferent you can try clown the buff they gave him make him a strong pick in my opinion. Clown addon are not bad i like to run the recharge and the exaust addon and the best thing is both are yellow addon.
Try our lord and saviour demogorgon
Play a killer barely anyone plays, like plagoo.
I don't think huntress is worth it because she will probably get an "addon pass" Next because of her iri head addon. And we all know what happens to a killer when bhvr wants to do "minimal" changes now.
If you want something for the longer run I would take spirit or Freddy. They probably won't touch them again very soon. Or Bubba. He seems to very strong now. Just wait out what they change on him after the ptb and then make your decision. Oni is a good choice aswell.
Realise Billy isn't gone and you are just turning your back on him.
i don't get it when people say: " i don't main him anymore because he got changed!"
isn't there something more about maining a Killer only because he's strong? You don't have the "Special" Connection to a Character? or am i the only one who thinks in that way?
Like me as example, i main Doc since the release. So i know how bd he was, but never left him. Because i liked everything on him. Not only if he's strong or not
There's something about maining a killer because they're FUN. Billy was fun, and he no longer is. That's the reason why everyone is jumping ship. He's not weak, he's now tedious and really boring, especially compared to how he was before they clowned all over his camera and animations. His add-ons definitely needed a nerf, because every single charge time addon was between "extremely strong" to "borderline overpowered". And Idk what kind of emotional connection one could have to a strechy-skinned redneck with a chainsaw but there's probably something there for some questionable individuals to enjoy.
Ohtofu, a legacy billy with over 6k hours havent played billy for months since his animations got changed, and the nerf makes him unfun to play because you cant mindgame with the chainsaw. He will still be a good killer, but what made him fun is gone.
Well, actually you need to turn your brai off while playing billy rn, because every chainsaw mindgame makes it impossible to actually down people afterwards with the chainsaw. You need to get to the survivors back, rev the chainsaw and down them. No mindgames allowed.
I agree with your opinion. But i can definitly understand if people just stop playing their favourite character if it got stressful and boring due to an unjustified change. Nurse main btw.
Hes just not as fun on the ptb thenoverheat just makes him so boring and restrictive to play
Billy is still my main killer. You just can't rely on the Chainsaw too much. His cattle hammer attacks are still good. After hitting a survivor with it, he quickly gets blood off, and the best part is that he doesn't lose line of sight of the survivor either. As others have said, you have to think when is the best time to use the chainsaw. I've had a survivor try to open the escape door as he was the last one left and I used the chainsaw and instantly took him down. On a different map on Meat Factory, I had a survivor panic and rush upstairs to a dead end and then I chainsawed him and took him down.
Billy still exists in the game. If you enjoy his gameplay, keep playing him. It's a game.
But it sounds like you like OP more than the character itself. So I'd say Spirit.
Freddy or Oni if you still want a strong M1
Huntress, Deathslinger or Spirit if you're looking for a more unique killer.
Super powerful and fun, massive learning curve tho.
I used to main hag before I found billy so I've always been considering her again
Wdym? I've seen what hes like and he doesnt seem worth it now
Other games would be my suggestions
Except its way more than a "slight nerf".
I do agree his addons needed some nerfs but the devs went way to hard on his base kit and it just doesnt seem fun to me anymore 🤷♂️
Hm I personally recommend sending a support ticket, if for some reason you have lost some characters then might be a bad glitch, what platform are you on?
Ahaha sorry I meant he's gone as in the nerf has killed lmao
If the overheat mechanic was changed to be not as punishing then I would stick with him
