So, how good is Ghostface?

    I can run him pretty well. Is he good? Any killer can be good depending on the player. U should play each killer and find who meshes with your playstyle :D

    Ghostface is a good stealth killer because he has no wait time between entering and exiting stealth. This enables him to walk around and stalk survivors (or go to a tree or a corner, and it will let you lean to stalk, which fills the stalk meter on them faster). He can stalk each survivor individually, and most will stalk those they're not actively chasing to 95% or so, and then finish the job as they're moving in, as once they become exposed, there is a timer, otherwise, there is not. His weakness is his reveal. Survivors who are familiar with Ghostface can completely kill his power by sticking nearby and constantly revealing him. In those instances, I don't so much use his power to stalk, so much as to move in close to start a chase where I'll just m1 them. Ghostface also has rather short reach, and when survivors vault windows and pallets, you'll usually find yourself missing the lunge. He also has the ability to teabag like survivors (thanks to his rapid crouching), and can walk like a totally smooth criminal. He's just fun to play. Between him and the Pig, he is the much more fun option. Once you learn how to avoid survivors revealing you (moving behind objects and all), you're usually set.

    When it comes to revealing, an added bonus is that, whenever a survivor starts to reveal you, you will see little white semi-circles on your screen, indicating from which direction a survivor is looking at you. If they successfully reveal you and bring you out of stealth, you will see an orange web pulsing over their location, so you can engage in chase anyway. He's not slower than other killers either, so even if you have to resort to a basic m1 chase, you're good to go.

    The OTHER thing to know about being revealed is that survivors can always reveal you if you're in their line of sight. That includes survivors who are downed on the ground, or hanging from a hook. Never hook someone and then try to stealth immediately, or you'll wind up behind revealed by the hooked survivor. If you slug survivors, however, you can easily find them by moving to where you think they are, and if they catch you on their screen, it might start to reveal you, pretty much showing you where they are.

    I personally find Ghostface the weakest killer in the game,just slap spinechill and be aware of your surroundings,he will never use his power that way lol.At least Myers can still stalk you despite you looking at him.

    GF is as good as the person using him.

    One of my personal faves.

    If you haven't purchased Bubba yet, then I would highly recommend getting him since he has one of the best perks in the whole game. DBD lives and dies on blood points, and BBQ is the best way to go about getting those blood points.

    As for ghostface? Like you I'm interested in playing him because I haven't done so yet either, but I've watched plenty of streams and YouTube videos. His power has a long cool down, and it's also countered by spine chill. He can also easily be knocked out of his power should any survivor be looking at him long enough, and that includes hooked survivors. This is why DBD desperately needs a practice mode. The last thing I want to do is practice with a killer I've never played with before, all-the-while being expected to compete against highly skilled players.

    Ghostface is a character you play for fun not to win i slap on the classic ghostface outfit and just play him to unwind.

    He’s mediocre.. not bad but not good either

    Hes the best stealth killer by far. Hes about A minus tier. Too much reliance on addons.

  • RaccoonRaccoon Member Posts: 3,667

    If you don't have Bubba, get him for BBQ and Franklin's.

    Since his rework, he's also pretty good if you slap Bamboozle onto him.

  • Jill10230Jill10230 Member Posts: 475

    No. Its power is easy to counter, it's easily loopable, BUT it's an infinite one-shot..😀

    Spine chill = spotted = very difficult to play with it in old maps. Many say moonwalk, but at the same time we lose the survivors and that I don't like ! For me it is not playable. However I learned to teleport with the Nurse without knowing where they were going, maybe moonwalk is a skill, like the Huntress with the hatchets, maybe with learning...

    Anyone play the hit and run playstyle? I wanna play mindless GF. Maybe something like pgtw/nurses/sloppy/discordance

    I'm a Ghostface main and have been since his release at rank 1 and he's mid tier. He's a killer that can be lethal in the right hands but he is quite addon dependent since Night Shroud takes 30 seconds on base to recover, this can become 16 seconds with his best addons, the Olsen's address book and chewed pen.

    A good build is mandatory against coordinated teams since he has no mobility besides base 115% movement speed which is very crippling on maps like the temple of purgation, most farm maps and auto haven maps are terrible since they are all open and have lots of pallets. His worst map is easily blood lodge since it's huge, open and is pallet haven.

    Overall, he's the best stealth killer if you don't consider addons but a mid tier killer. He's my favorite killer since I've loved the Scream movies as long as I can remember and the reason I have only played him since release is because I like him, it doesn't matter to me that he isn't as strong as A and S tier killers because it's much more rewarding when I win with him which is 8 out 10 of my games.

    Ghost Face and Bubba are both in the category of killers that if you outplay the survivors you should win the match but there's not a lot of room for error on your part if the survivors play well. They play very differently from each other as well, so rather than worry about which one is "better" I think the question you might want to ask is which one do you think has a playstyle you'd enjoy more?

    • Bubba's style is simple: walk up to a survivor, start your chainsaw when you get close, Profit! (Unless they beat you to a vault or something) And that's it. He's got no tracking, no stealth, no fast map travel, he's just dangerous in a footchase. (Technially he's also really good at face camping but that's not a terribly effective strategy in general so I don't recommend doing it.)The upside is if you can hit a couple of people early on with the chainsaw the quick downs will build up quite a bit of pressure for you. The downside is that you have no stealth or map movement so they'll usually see you coming and you'll be in for a chase. Chases are definitely a fun part of the game, so that's not a bad thing, but in terms of time efficiency it does mean you're starting at the maximum possible distance for your chase most of the time.
    • Ghost Face's stealth is great. He can enter it instantly and it stays on until he attacks or someone stares at him for about a second. And if they do stare at you then you get a Killer Instinct ping on their location which means he has a bit of tracking as well. Plus while Stalking he can build up to get Exposed hits on survivors. (Usually the tactic is build it up to 99% completion, move in and finish right before you get there, or if you can manage to stalk while very close quickly stalk to Exposed then rush in for the hit). Depending on the survivors and situation you may or may not be getting Exposed hits all the time, but even if you aren't your Stealth does allow you to get much closer than normal before starting a chase which cuts down the chase times and reduces their opportunity to get to safety before a hit. Because you may not be able to always get Exposed hits, and because he has no fast map travel, you do have to play Ghost Face a bit strategically.

    Mid tier at best and pretty boring to play.

    He's good, but you can be really...REALLY annoying as him. And I mean so much so that most people will just DC if you play good as him.

    If you want to make people DC, go ahead. But, truth is, just do whatever you like. If he caught your eye, then just buy him and play as much as you want.

  • SlashstreetboySlashstreetboy Member Posts: 1,308

    Both are part of my roster. Since the recent changes Bubba is pretty strong tbh.

    Ghostface was accurately described. Best Stealth Killer, yet mid tier at best against good Survivors.

    If you have realistic expectations both are great! Really depends which playstyle you prefer. Bubba has the added benefit of BBQ, undeniably great.

    The question is not how good Ghostface is, the question is, how buggy he currently is.
