what non-meta perks do you enjoy?

RagingCalmRagingCalm Member Posts: 407

I really like We'll Make It, Premonition, Tenacity, Alert, and Open Handed. There are a few more but you get the point: I enjoy quite a few off meta perks. Is anyone else like-minded?

    Bond + Open handed, for sure.

    I'm also partial to Pharmacy over self care, just because if I play correctly I get one fast self heal and a free medkit for next time!

    Balanced Landing

    No killer expects it the first time

    We'll make it, but i wish survivors notice the notification and not let me waste sb running after them to heal them fast.

    Stake Out is a great Survivor perk. Does a great job of countering Ruin.

  • TezzisTezzis Member Posts: 54

    Open Handed, Plunderer's Instinct, Pharmacy and Bond :)

  • QuenQuen Member Posts: 2

    Tenacity. There was a time where my sis managed to escape after being downed close to the gate with Tenacity right in front of the killer while I stalled for her.

    Also, We'll Make It & Bond and great.

    Lightweight and Small Game are really nice for that 4th perk slot. Small Game can nullify totems and Trapper/Hag almost entirely. LW let's you just kind run around as much as you want.

    Pretty sure Iron Will is considered meta, but if I could pick any 1 perk to use it'd probably be that.

  • AkieAkie Member Posts: 4

    I have a crush on Up the Ante. :D

    Quick&Quiet is nice, especially when you're trying to save someone from the basement and the Killer gets back. Jump into the locker and be save. (Doesn't work all the time tbh.)

    Balanced Landing and Small game. Ofc.

    We’ll Make It is meta

    Balanced Landing and Vigil

    Empathy is my crutch perk <3

  • BlushinUsagiBlushinUsagi Member Posts: 3

    Recently I've really loved using Vigil.

  • UncomfortableUncomfortable Member Posts: 15

    Alert, Tenacity, Object of Obsession, Bond, Wake-Up, Vigil, Pharmacy,

  • linglingenlinglingen Member Posts: 40

    Urban evasion (always equipped, I feel naked without it), tenacity and we'll make it.

    Tenacity is a really good situational perk, which more people should try out. Has saved my life many times.

  • lastloadoutlastloadout Member Posts: 23

    We'll Make it, Tenacity, Bond, Urban Evasion, Iron Will,

    Ordinary I run Sprint Burst| Borrowed Time | Botany Knowledge| Decisive Strike
    but sometimes i swap BK/DS for

    Stake Out
    is really fun cus it counters hex ruin when ppl cant find it.
    And it makes not being chased a whole new experience! I love sitting somewhere in a corner in the killer's terror radius waiting for my staks to go up. Feels really rewarding to be a coward, and grants me great skill checks for no effort haha

    Ace In the Hole
    Because getting a purple medkit/toolbox/ flashlight with a rare add on never feels bad.

    Botany Knowledge
    Its actually in my main loadout. Just saves a lot of time in general and helped me in many situations so far. I consider it a life saver, really.

    Boil Over
    Its the new Kate Teachable that makes the killer not see the hooks light up in read (10m range) when he picks me up and makes him stumble around 75% more than usually when i am trying to wiggle out. It looks absolutely hilarious for the killers and is really fun in Kill your Friends. It also makes the killer run into flashlights a lot so far so it might be better than expected. I love it when they are running into other survivors or objects because i wiggle so much, really fun perk :D

  • VisionmakerVisionmaker Member Posts: 2,051
    I'm gonna love the new Dance With Me perk. I already run Lithe and QnQ so I'm gonna be so sneaky!
  • CaretakerCaretaker Member Posts: 764

    No Mither, Plunderer's Instinct, Pharmacy, Ace In The Hole, Up The Ante.

  • ASpazNamedSteveASpazNamedSteve Member Posts: 1,783

    Stakeout. Really enjoy using that perk, especially since its buff :D

  • SorenSoren Member Posts: 369

    Bond, one of the most powerful survivor perks, it has so much use!

    I love the fun of Pharmacy as well :3

    I crutch on LIghtweight so hard, it honestly makes sprinting around the map a lot less dangerous and breaking chases a lot easier.

    I'm also a sucker for pharmacy and the free medkits, not to mention the super fast & quiet chest searches (could go well with plunderers and ace in the hole if I ever used those... hmm)

    Aaand lets not forget my number 1 go-to Jake loadout with that spicy.... Object of Obsession. I never see anyone beyond low rank people who don't know what they are doing running it but tbh I love this perk. It screams bait, and even if you are not baiting its the best scouting/warning perk. Just glance his way and bam, you know where he is. As long as, you know, you are careful that he doesnt now know where you are....

    Also, No Mither. Pairs great with Resilience and This isnt Happening for a dumb gen jockey loadout (or just makes you bait if you run dead-hard)

    And I used to love Premonition. Idk why I don't use it now but I still prefer it over spine chill. Has a punishing cooldown, buuut.... well, helps me avoid walking into the killer, unlike spine chill, which just makes me realize I'm in trouble but not which direction to not go to.

    Not sure if We'll Make It is meta but I use that a lot too....

  • SteebearSteebear Member Posts: 105

    We'll Make It should be meta but isn't used enough...I always have it equipped.

    Open Handed with Kindred is really cool, I run Bond pretty much all the time as well because once you use it and see what it offers it is so good!

    I love no mither, not joking. I'm a Mither main
  • Fre_Shavacado0Fre_Shavacado0 Member Posts: 106
    I love unbreakable but you have to get lucky to use it. Self care is handy because you don’t have to find someone or a med kit to heal, also can wake yourself up from Freddy (also only if you’re lucky) . also Urban Invasion. i don’t think i have to explain that one lol.
