Blight is the WORST killer in the game



  • Leachy_JrLeachy_Jr Member Posts: 1,380

    You should watch tru3 play him for reals. He's a pretty good killer overall but for some reason when it comes to blight he's really good with him. Like super good. Watching him has already made me realise that hes better than I thought.

    I'm waiting until people have more than 72 hours available for general play.

    I feel like once people adapt and optimize, he's gonna be extra scary.

    The community needs to learn to WAIT when things are new. Give changes a few weeks before we decide things are broken or bad.

    Unless it's a big, exploit, etc.

    Bro why tf are you in every thread defending the devs. They arent going to give you whisperer. Give it up.

    He's not bad at all, I've seen Monto play him and the survivors get destroyed, OhTofu played him and destroyed the survivors. I've played him and only got 1 game with less than 2 kills and it was my very first game, and yes I'm console so I can't even flick. He's very viable. I will admit he's very perk dependent but he is very viable. Also I'm a green ranks and most of the games I versed red rank survivors even though rank means nothing and I have less than 100 hours in killer and was still getting 2ks, 3ks, and 4ks. He's very, very viable. The only buff he needs is a free lunge out if his power for chase but he has such good gen pressure that you can waste time in a chase and still pressure the gens.

    The Clown and Legion would like to speak to the manager

    jokes aside, I agree

  • hex_fixGENShex_fixGENS Member Posts: 14

    I think he’s medium b tier and that’s only because of his map pressure his lethal lunge is terrible because of the 30 degree turn lock if they change that I’d say he’s high tier

    Ironically "top 10" puts him mid tier lol

    I've been destroying with him as well, however as survivor in solo queue we've been destroying him as well. So my point is the results are quite polarizing.

    I feel like a lot of people just don't know what they're doing against him. From the survivor side I can count on one hand the amount of times I've actually been hit by a rush out of many, many games. The counter play just seems too easy and I can see him getting abused as heck when you actually going against some survivors that are even semi decent.

    I think I'm on like 12+ 4k (almost all yellow and below addons, no offerings) win streak as him and a 12+ 3-4e win streak as survivor in solo queue as well (not counting mori games obv)

    Prob more on both those, but that's being more reserved with my estimates and I wasn't counting exactly. Like I said, polarizing results eh?

    I do think he's kind of weak but also with a particular play style and a certain add on he can be very strong. To be strong with him you kind of need compound 21 (which in my opinion is a bit too OP).

    How to make the most out of him is using aura reading to your advantage. Most specifically compound 21 combined with the new hex perk or other aura reading perks and you can basically know where survivors are at all times.

    Use your initial rush into a wall, If you see no aura, you know nobodys around that area so you can you speed away across the map bump into another object and do that over until you find someone which with his speed you most likely will. Alternatively you can use tinkerer or other perks to see auras from a distance, dash over to them and when you get to them know exactly where they are thanks to compound 21.

    His power gets hits at so many "safe" tiles.

    Cow tree- Rotate the survivor counterclockwise and bounce off the mini wall to rush through the pallet and swing

    Autohaven cranes- you have tires on either side and can bounce off the pallet. The survivor HAS to drop the pallet to avoid being hit at this tile. Even if they run up the ramp, you can rush up the ramp, bump, and swing at the window but you have to be quick

    Jungle gyms- actually easy. If they take the window, you bump on the wall behind the window, the short wall at the pallet, and then either hit at the pallet or back at the window. Even easier if they don't take the window because then you only need one bounce to get a hit.

    I could go on. Point being, this killer takes time and some geometry. I have a background in mechanics/engineering, so I've picked him up quickly.

  • ALostPuppyALostPuppy Member Posts: 3,399

    That'd make him so broken and easy to use. He definitely doesn't need it, you need to be more careful with your lunges and practice him a lot to make him work. He's not a killer you can pick up and know everything there is to know about him in a day like 90% of other killers in this game. It's like people who want rat liver to be base-kit on Demo, you don't know what you're asking for.

  • BabyDweetMainBabyDweetMain Member Posts: 435

    I mean I'm a survivor main and I think he definitely needs a buff.

  • GeminiCrowGeminiCrow Member Posts: 55

    What you're really talking about is how you're overusing his ability. You shouldn't be using it every time it refreshes.

  • hillbillyclaudmain69hillbillyclaudmain69 Member Posts: 1,528

    Hes fine. Learn how to play him. I did and I now double pip every match. He'll never be as good as nurse though.

  • EternalEngineEternalEngine Member Posts: 5

    This whole post is maximum kek. You've played him a grand total of 8 hours, and because you're not getting 4k after 4k, he's bad? The killer has barely been out for a few days and it makes me laugh whenever I see the stereotypical "ermergerd new killer bad buff/need" when people haven't even minmaxed the guy yet.

    Like plenty of other people said, he's map dependent, because his power involves moving at mach 7 over to your location and hit you. If there's a lot of obstacles, then of course this power is going to be less effective or require much more practice/mastery to be effective with. Doesn't mean he's bad. You can make the same argument about most of the killers in this game, in some fashion.

    I'd say play him more. You're expecting top tier results way too soon.

  • TheGhostofZgorTheGhostofZgor Member Posts: 334

    This would mean more if people didn't say this every time a new killer is released. Also, I think its heavily up to the player, I mean, clown is my killer main and I do great with him almost every time, yet folks still say hes the worst.

  • konchokkonchok Member Posts: 1,121

    He's something of a pub stomper. He's extremely good vs bad survivors. However, against good survivors he struggles a lot more. I'm not saying he's a bad killer because of that but it does mean that you really need to master him as soon as you start versing good survivors (when I say good survivors I mean rank 1 and rank 2s) . A rank 1 or rank 2 survivor can easily cost you the game unless you really have your angles down.

  • BaldursGate2BaldursGate2 Member Posts: 994

    He is at least B-Tier, with a flick and minor buffs most likely A-Tier. He has pretty good addons.

  • TheMonadoBoiTheMonadoBoi Member Posts: 343

    He's a great killer.

    Only held back by the devs' stupid limitations which in this case is his flick potential. If they give him the ability to turn more similarly to Oni's he's easily Top 5.

    he is at least better than the following killers due to his traversal and potential to get hits

    • clown- no map pressure, arguably does the same thing by using power to catch up to survivors.
    • legion- no way to down injured survivors, can't always use power for traversal unless more than 2 survivors are injured otherwise you might waste it.
    • trapper- swf and just good survivors waste too much of his time, no or barely any map pressure.
    • pig? maybe? her ambush is extremely situational in a chase. no map pressure instead has stalling which can still be rushed through by survivors without RBT's.

  • guyDDDfieriguyDDDfieri Member Posts: 9

    He's definitely not the worst, that crown goes to wraith or trapper. If they buff his lunge range in lethal rush and changed is first person height he'd be a lot better.

  • ClickyClickyClickyClicky Member Posts: 3,536

    I'd say Trapper is the worst killer. Survivors often escape from traps on the 1st attempt making his power worthless, and if you try to trap to deny an area i.e. Badham school or a strong pallet they can dead hard over it and you have to stop to pick the trap up to get past. A killers power than can hinder him more than it can help. Crazy.

  • JimPickens666JimPickens666 Member Posts: 326

    This here, Legion i think is actually despite having a lower skill cap because their powers are so similar but legion doesn't have to smack into a wall to use hit, the tradeoff is not being able to down people but it think it will be more consistent.

    At least on console. It really annoys me that 2 original killers in a row have been made basically just for PC

  • BlueberryBlueberry Member Posts: 9,288

    Actually doesn't bother me at all.

    I honestly wouldn't have even noticed it at all if people had been spamming the forums about it.

    Just feels like Hag, I don't see the issue.

  • JimPickens666JimPickens666 Member Posts: 326

    No im pretty sure killer mains have been asking to fix DS, keys, SWF and gen speed. I don't think a single person has asked for a killer thats harder to play without a having a power strong enough to justify it.

    As a fellow survivor main i really don't understand why people say [BAD WORD] like this, because blight is great to go against I get it! He's fun to be in a chase with and easy to escape.....but no one is going to play him in a month lol. The devs cater to us, the killers don't so whats the point

  • DarKaronDarKaron Member Posts: 603

    Honestly, this sums up Blight in a shellnut.

    I have had such insane luck guarding Devour Soap using Thrill of the Hunt as Blight, it's practically carried my games versus cocky Survivors.

    One second, they butt-dance for my amusement at a loop. The next, they're one-shot and mori'd out of the game out of NOWHERE.

    His mobility, especially on outdoor maps, is absolutely insane. 100 meters of distance basekit within about 5 seconds? He also closes gaps from initial hits very quickly, and if you bounce in weird ways, Survivors don't quite expect it when you run past them, go around the corner, and show up behind them again.

  • Grain_Of_SaltGrain_Of_Salt Member Posts: 12

    Can you make a guide please? I enjoy him but I have trouble with maximizing his potential, and I can't really find a build other than the obvious corrupt intervention and so on. I'm sure lots of killer mains would appreciate it as he is a very difficult and new killer. Sincerely a fellow killer main.
