Is the demo getting a rework?

just wondering

    People speculate that the upside down fog whisperer symbol and the demo face on the bottom right in the fog whisperer's 'into the fog' tournament along with the dev's tweet regarding demo a couple days prior signifies a potential demo rework or just something to do with stranger things.

    I kinda hope it’s a rework I like demo but his ability and addons are a bit lackluster ..his perks got touched up so I imagine he will to

  • PulsarPulsar Member Posts: 8,781


    His power is balanced, but it isn't super fun. I'd also like to see him more accurate to the show, maybe operating like a blend between Old Freddy and New Freddy.

    Either way, I saw a suggestion to make his portals expand and corrupt the surrounding area with the Upside-Down and I REALLY like that idea.

    Hmm,him being unfun for you is just your opinion.

    There are a lot of people,including me,that have a lot of fun playing him.

    Changing his power isn't necessary

    why not both a kit update and a addon update? I actually like seeing this stuff, and for me, I find demo's power is very underwhelming, I feel like there should be more reasons to cleanse portals. And from my experience playing Demogorgon (just p2 him today) his shred feels janky, like sometimes Ill hit things that I didn't know I could reach but the next moment I won't hit the survivor... or my shred won't make me move and I'll get exhausted.

    It would be certainly interesting if demo received some sort of visual update as well... even though I think he looks amazing.

  • PulsarPulsar Member Posts: 8,781

    Most people seem to agree with me, considering he is the least played paid DLC character.

    He is incredibly bland when compared to Freddy, Pig, Myers, GhostFace and Leatherface.

    His Kill Rate also isn't super great either, which generally means he isn't that great against good Survivors.

    Changing his power isn't NECCESSARY, but it would be nice.

  • SirCrackenSirCracken Member Posts: 975

    It isn't necessary, sure. And the game certainly has a lot more urgent changes that need implementing.

    But I still think that Demo's current state is a far cry from their terrifying appearance from the show. And I would appreciate an effort to make him more like his character on-screen.

  • OniWantsYourMacaroniOniWantsYourMacaroni Member Posts: 5,727

    Well,he's just harder to play than other killers which explains the lower pick and kill rate.

    I would rather say killers like wraith or legion are pretty bland because those killers can't do anything exciting or interesting with their powers.Demo with his shred however is able.

    I would say why fix something that isn't broken?

  • PulsarPulsar Member Posts: 8,781

    Wraith and Legion are good at lower Ranks and are easy to pick up and learn and Wraith is completely free, but Legion is Shard DLC.

    Demo is difficult to learn, very difficult to use (on Console) and he is paid DLC.

    He shouldn't be bland. I simply want him to have a fun and exciting power that is more in line with what Stranger Things has shown the Demogorgon to be capable of.

  • AhoyWolfAhoyWolf Member Posts: 2,967

    I kinda disagree, his portals need some changes to be more viable, his "stealth" also needs some tiny improvements, like you said he definitely needs an addon rework.

    The only thing great about Demo is his Shred.

  • SkittlesthehuskySkittlesthehusky Member Posts: 503

    i'm actually rather interested in knowing myself. a part of me wants to say no, because i've mained him ever since he came out and essentially mastered him, so i don't see anything really work reworking, add-ons included!

    but, i may just be biased and play him efficiently enough that i don't see any chances needed. who knows. x)

    i just personally think he's in a really decent spot and doesn't need anything buffed, nerfed, or changed.

  • JustalittlepeeckJustalittlepeeck Member Posts: 1,101

    Well I really hope they have something special prepared for Demogorgon.

  • SkittlesthehuskySkittlesthehusky Member Posts: 503

    to be fair, the noise notifications are desperately needed when it comes to versing a demogorgon, due to nature of stealth when using his portals, and being able to pounce on survivors. his versatility with stealth perks makes this even more important.

    also, being able to dodge his attacks blindly is a bit of a stretch. even a partially decent demogorgon can still land a good shred! it's just a matter of patience and them not blindly using it, since it can penalize someone if misused. ^^

  • Psycho_Psycho_ Member Posts: 264

    Can we give the addons some kind of use.

    The only good addons he has are rat liver and rat tail.

    The rest do little to nothing.


  • ALostPuppyALostPuppy Member Posts: 3,399

    I'd like an add-on rework, but for the love of God I hope they don't touch his base kit and his shred values. They're fine as is. Maybe if they want to make him able to place portals anywhere regardless of the size of the area I'd be happy for something like that (might look weird having it clip into everything but function over form imo). But I heavily disagree with people who want rat liver's values to be base kit. He essentially turns into pyramid head 2.0. IMO this add-on needs to either be removed, nerfed or turn into a green or purple. Addonless Demo is already fine as is and I don't think he needs to be significantly buffed in any way or changed to become add-on reliant because that would kill him for me.

  • BioXBioX Member Posts: 1,378

    I mean sure, maybe, eventually but look at the timing, we literally JUST got the midchapter patch which adressed Pyramidhead.

    Next would be the next chapter, and after that we might see a midchapter patch with demo but that is still quite a wayz off.

    no way they would start doing any sort of hinting now

  • Lily0Lily0 Member Posts: 128

    He doesn't really need a full rework, just his addons changed and some QoL buffs..

  • xenofon13xenofon13 Member Posts: 1,241

    No word for demo. So after a year. Maybe.

  • ButtercakeButtercake Member Posts: 1,656

    You mean Demo was in demo mode all along??? 😁

  • FFirebranddFFirebrandd Member Posts: 1,555

    Honestly Demo's base kit is pretty much fine. I did see someone say the game should be nicer about where demo can put portals... and all the yes. Hate trying to place a portal then shuffling around for 5s trying to find a valid spot.

    Demo's main issue is that he's not the best at any one thing and is worse than Freddy, the other generalist in the game.

    Seriously... Demo has some chase power with shred, then his portals give some mobility, some slowdown, some tracking, and some stealth. Honestly what I'd like to see for Demo is an add on pass that gives him a lot of options for shifting his portals into specific directions. So... things like...

    Open Portals close again ~30s after Demo uses them. That would make them much better for mobility and stealth but sacrificing slowdown and tracking.

    Demo places open portals instead of closed ones. Better for tracking and slowdown, worse for mobility and stealth.

    I think that's what the devs tried to do with Demo's add ons... but the add ons are just not strong enough to actually pull that off.
