DBD Survivor Tierlist - Based on how the majority of these survivor mains play

Some might call this stereotyping, but I assure you this list is fairly accurate (at least in my experience). And to let everyone know, I am an Ash main, but I feel like I don't fit the stereotype of being an average skill player (especially for a red rank solo queue that understands how to do gens). Sorry if I may be hating on some of your mains, but I feel this best describes how many people view these characters even before seeing them in action.

Two points to add: these are not 100% accurate to how every player plays these characters (believe it or not I have met friendly Neas & pro-level Megs). Secondly, if you disagree with something on my list it might be that we experience different things. I'm in the NA (West Coast region) if that helps with understanding what players I'm usually playing with.

    Even tho survivors shouldn’t be tiered as they are shells with how people play this is scarily accurate 😂 especially the brain dead meg haven’t seen a meg that doesn’t drop all the pallets and hold a flashlight on you when those run out

    I don't know why but I rarely see Ace ever. If I do, they are either really good or they just farm the entire team. Couldn't decide on how I felt about him lol.

  • BloodMoneyMercBloodMoneyMerc Member Posts: 477

    You know to be fair, the few Jeff's I have come across seem to be like this. Occasionally though, they seem to be gen-phobic haha.

  • ManyAchievablesManyAchievables Member Posts: 657

    I mean, when I play Jeff, I'll do gens until I see an easy altruistic opportunity appear, but I bet that most Jeffs go too far and only do altruistic stuff and do zero generators.

    This is scarily accurate ime.

    But it could be improved by using a quadrant chart ranking skill/toxicity instead lol. That would be perfect.

    bring Laurie WAAAAAAAAY down

    They just get carried by their own perks

    Edit: Oh wait, it says "toxic". I thought it was going by skill lol

  • TodgeweihtTodgeweiht Member Posts: 3,666

    In my experience Steve players tend to be the most braindead. They are the ones that waste all the pallets in the map within the first 2 minutes of the game.

  • AxeAxe Member Posts: 1,061

    Ace is mainly used by tryhards like me cause he got sick cosmetics and a built in iron will

  • PigMainClaudettePigMainClaudette Member Posts: 3,842

    I'm not toxic, thank you.

    At least my other two are "generally skilled".

  • ГолубойГолубой Member Posts: 126

    Last times I got farmed it was always an Ace. And if it's not Ace, it's a David.

    I've come to hate Aces.

  • VeenVeen Member Posts: 706

    Most Kate & Cheryl I encounter get downed by m1 killers in a 10 seconds span, like Megs.

  • SketchyPenguinSketchyPenguin Member Posts: 142

    Oh boy you won't like the next 70 days then :D

    In my experience according to your points it will probably be more like this:

    Toxic: Nea, Claudette,

    Generally Skilled: Feng Min, Kate, David, Zarina, Adam, Cheryl, Quentin, Bill

    Average Skill Level: Laurie, Yui, Jake, Jane, Steve, Nancy, Ace, Jeff, Tapp, Dwight

    Braindead: Ash, Meg,

  • Fiv55Fiv55 Member Posts: 350

    as a Jake/David/Steve "Main" I can confirm this list.

    Although a lot of nancys are braindead as well. There are exceptions to the rule ofc :)

  • ZerLukasZerLukas Member Posts: 295

    In my expeirence Neas, Davids and Lauries are often the toxic ones.

    Lauries also tend to be more skilled, alongside Adams, Yuis and Aces.

    Janes, Cheryls, Kates, Zarinas and Jeffs tend to be average in everything.

    Dwights are often braindead and Jakes in my experience are even more so.

    Nancy, Ash and Bill are usually either super good or on the contrary even worse than a rank 20 Dwight.

    Also there are enough Megs, Claudettes and Fengs to fill all the categories and be on top of each single one. Quentins, Steves and Tapps are on the contrary too rare to judge.

  • IronIron Member Posts: 241

    Oh Nea. Feels bad when my main has become the most toxic in many people's eyes, but hey I think I play decently well most games and I like bright cosmetics, especially hers.

  • GoodBoyKaruGoodBoyKaru Member Posts: 20,556

    According to this im either "Toxic" or "Generally skilled" and id like to disagree with both. I try not to be toxic and I'm ######### at the game lmao.

    Megs being briandead though? Sorry but I'd have to agree lol.

  • Pior_MortePior_Morte Member Posts: 525

    You should put my Acy boi in a "Supreme" tier

  • anarchy753anarchy753 Member Posts: 4,043

    I'm generally skilled, or not seen enough to determine.

    Ace should be in toxic though. They like to think they're unicorns but they play exactly the same way as Neas.

  • ГолубойГолубой Member Posts: 126

    Nah, the next 70 days will be fine. It won't be Ace mains, but just people playing Ace.

    It's the ace mains that tend to suckass. They usually have dope ass skins though.

  • AggressiveFTWAggressiveFTW Member Posts: 832

    Players who play as Kate Denson usually are decent at looping and won't camp at pallets like Bill's lol.

  • GreenPufferFishGreenPufferFish Member Posts: 498

    survivors are just cosmetics if you disagree with your own thing its probably false

  • BloodMoneyMercBloodMoneyMerc Member Posts: 477

    While yes they are just basically all just reskins, it seems a lot of like-minded individuals cling to maining the same characters. And I feel like this list kinda does a good job in identifying how these mains typically like to play the game haha.

    This gave me a good laugh. XD

  • DragonMasterDarrenDragonMasterDarren Member Posts: 2,271

    good to see Jake up on the high skill tier, seeing as i main Jake and i can confirm, they're usually pretty smart

    Day 10 of asking for a black trenchcoat for Jake

  • thrawn3054thrawn3054 Member Posts: 5,283

    I have 6 survivors I use. You attacked 4 out of the 6. Leave Dweat alone you bully.

  • DetailedDetrimentDetailedDetriment Member Posts: 2,632

    Claudettes, Lauries, and Kates are some of the worst survivors I've ever seen.

    Dwight and Ace tend to be some of the best players to exist. It's the reason you don't see many of them at high ranks.
