Blight sucks so bad on console

I play Dead By Daylight on Xbox and on PC and I got the chapter for Xbox the same day it came out while barely getting the chapter for PC yesterday and playing blight on PC makes him in my opinion a B+ to an A tier Killer. He has better mobility and flicking on pc because of higher sensitivity and the fact that you’re on a mouse. It’s a shame because on console you can’t flick or turn super sharp like you would on pc and I wish the devs would see how he is on console because he’s so terrible on console but I love him on pc. I might consider even getting an outfit for him on pc. Please Devs look into his handicaps on console.

    Just use Compound 21 and boom, ez adept achievement.

    Dude exactly the thread I just made! Behaviour needs to do something! I use a controller on my pc cause I always have for comfort, so I'm screwed too. More people need to complain.

    I used compound 21 and it was far from easy. I basically had to play him like legion, using my power to dash around the map and then using the compound to locate survivors, i only got like one or 2 actual lethal rushes but most of the time they weren't even worth going for

    I've been running it, it doesn't help when I'm getting gen rushed.

    Playing Blight is genuinely frustrating for me as a console player. The FPS drops, low turning rate, his low camera, are a just frustrating. Hopefully Blight can at least have his camera moved up and be given a little more sensitivity in Lethal Rush's lunge so he can hit things that are outside of a 45 degree cone.

    So far I've only seen two blights as survivor. Both were pc players.

    I'm just glad I bought him with shards. At least his perks are fun.

    On PS4, can't turn even 50% of what I see from PC streamers... Weird

  • NobsydeNobsyde Member Posts: 1,091

    yo @jisp3r :*

    I can assure you on console it is absolutely possible to turn exactly as much as on PC - in fact in a couple of days I'll upload a game where I show just that - a couple of hits at ≈ 90° turn angle.

    It's just that the concept of the "flick" is different than with other killers: you need to be already turning while the lunge begins.

    as for @Babyyy_Boyy , as somebody else has suggested try to use compound 21 to start learning how the killer works without getting overly discouraged.

    This was my first week:

    while this is yesterday (no compound 21):


    of course there's still A LOT to learn and every time I see @ScottJund play I feel like the biggest of the noobs, but even if we'll never be at the PC level, I would say Blight is certainly viable on console (...unlike Nurse :P)

    I've been playing a lot of blight on console, and he hasn't been as bad as most people say. He's definitly hard to learn, but he's not impossible.

    hes no different to ONI etc. with his less flick, so while on console hes weaker hes still a really strong killer thats for sure, map pressure and free hits between loops is his strength!

  • xeravxerav Member Posts: 296

    His Turnrate is limited so it doesnt matter if you play with M&K or Controller. Its not like playing Nurse or Huntress where M&K is superior.

    I’m beginning to wonder if the turning add-ons are required for his Adept. That’s all I’ve tried to do with him and it’s a nightmare to play without them. I’ve been using Compound 33 and 21 mainly. The FPS drops, bad POV, and bugged power after getting stunned are doing a number on him. It’s a shame because I think Blight’s a really cool Killer and he looks to be pretty strong (at least from gameplay I’ve seen). Compound 21 is useless if Blight has so many problems that he’s a mess.

  • NobsydeNobsyde Member Posts: 1,091

    the big difficulty on console is to quickly turn the camera after a bump to aim for the survivor/next bump; either you take a bit more time than you can afford to guarantee the hit, or you risk to misaim.

  • katsumodo47katsumodo47 Member Posts: 53

    Dear bhvr please stop making killers that are easier on pc

  • MrPeterPFLMrPeterPFL Member Posts: 487

    I don’t believe this is true as I play Blight all the time and I’ve been doing great with him

  • APoipleTurtleAPoipleTurtle Member Posts: 687

    I hated playing him initially, but then I remembered he has add-ons that improve his turning speed. Blight feels SOOO much better even just when using the Plague Bile.

    He's definitely annoying to use when the game starts derping out and dropping frames, but that's hardly a Blight-specific grievance on console. When things decide to run okay, and especially when you get a good map for him, he becomes incredibly fun to play.

    I honestly don't think the turning would be worse on console because it's actually non-existant on PC.

  • ZozzyZozzy Member Posts: 641

    He also sucks on pc when survivors figure out a slight arc or a tree counter his rush.

    Fear is appropriate! Nah I've just been looking for a console blight content creator so I can absorb your knowledge

    I also would like to put time into playing blight. He looks like a fun killer. It's a shame the devs won't give us the killer playable at their full capacity on console. If they insist on being so hard headed about mouse and keyboard despite other console games allowing it, they could at least put in a little big of effort into making our control methods fully functional. It's sad that I'm going to have to wait until next patch to have a shot at playing a worthwhile killer because they don't want to finish designing him on console.

    Also, I'm lost as to what all the people on pc are talking about acting like he has no flick there. It seems like it requires a strong motion to do it, but there are videos of tofu testing his flick where he can pretty much instantly turn 90 degrees. Where as on console you very slowly turn so that by the very end of your swing you've turned roughly 40 degrees. So there is a firm functionality gap between the two systems.

    I’m an Xbox player and I LOVE Blight. I can deny that playing on PC is easier than console, but I still don’t think he sucks. He is easily one of, if not, my favorite killer to play. He’s just a bit nap reliant and you’ve got to know how to really take advantage of his power.

    Yep, on console it is literally impossible to hit any kind of juke
