What one perk do you really enjoy using?

RivynRivyn Member Posts: 2,966

I'm not talking about perks for a meta build, or to counter what you may consider 'against the rulebook' type perks, unless you just like the idea behind the perk itself. Just that one perk that feels fun to use, that reminds you that you're actually playing a game, and not just a sweat fest.

For me, it's Lightborn. Those extra few seconds where survivors are trying to blind, before it clicks that it isn't working, always makes me giggle. More so if they keep trying, either at another pallet, or backpedaling away from me as if I can't see them. I'll sometimes even let the flashlight user go, just because it's amusing to actually be able to use the perk for once.

Wish there were more perks like it out there.

    Ever since I got it in the Shrine of Secrets, I always use Detective's Hunch. It just gives you that added boost of map awareness which for me, is a game changer.

    It just gets rid of that boring headless chicken run I do when search for a gen to get fixed. Lol.

    Head on sure is fun to use, after the killer spends 10s looking around where I went and then BAM! Though I often get grabbed from lockers.

    Agitation! I love when a survivor team uses petrified oak and start trying to run me into deadzones, I can get to a nearby hook easily, but it can also be the difference between those extra 10 metres to the basement hooks, i almsot always run it base kit now unless I'm going for something niche/specific

    My absolute favourite Perk in this game. It does not cure frustration with solo but instead of 2 solo games I can now play at least 4 or 5.

    I Love OoO tbh. It's funny to see how much people DC in the Beginning of a Match.

    Discordance. I just can't get away from this perk. Provides a lot of early game pressure, as well is strong late game.

    At the moment WGLF. Really like its 100% healing speed for dying survivors and I feel bad not using it knowing how much BP I'm missing out on.

    Also helps me feel better about not playing so well and dying because I'm probably getting lots of points regardless. If I unhook a survivor endgame instead of escaping and I die, ah well I missed out on 5k escape points. But I'll probably gain 2 tokens, so earn more BP anyway.

    We’ll Make It

    Jus can’t beat that speedy heal

    FOR THE people, a really good perk actually. You find someone who slugs, run this with the yui perk that stops blood trails when injured and resets when healed along with lightweight and self care and it's a really good strat against sluggers. I've had games where out of 3 downed and slugged I got 2 up and ran

    Detectives Hunch I love getting all the totems and using the info to avoid a three gen.

    Flip Flop happens to be one of my favorites with Slippery Meat. Flip Flop saves my hand some pain if it works and when it works, it has saved me quite a few times.

    Shadowborn. I personally find it very useful to have my eyes extended so I can see everything around me.

  • km66km66 Member Posts: 111

    I really enjoy Tenacity, in terms of just a fun perk to use overall. It’s so much fun to be able to crawl around the map faster, and while healing.

  • Asssblasster625Asssblasster625 Member Posts: 628

    Overcharge. I love kicking a gen faking the leave just to have them fail the check then go for another kick and a hook

  • sotd_coauthorsotd_coauthor Member Posts: 45

    I love Iron Will. And for a while I really didn't understand why so many people ran it, what's so good about no groaning? But running this along with Quick and Quiet is so much fun for literally disappearing in the middle of a chase, and then using Head On when they finally realise the locker that's nearby

  • Dwight_FairfieldDwight_Fairfield Member Posts: 5,575

    Bond. The information it gives saves lives including my own.

  • DistortedDreamDistortedDream Member Posts: 671

    Alert. It lets me know where the killer is and has saved me countless amount of times from running straight into the killer.

  • DeathBeamDeathBeam Member Posts: 257

    I enjoy using NOED to surprise survivors in the end game and head on to stun the killer.

  • notstarboardnotstarboard Member Posts: 3,696

    I like minigame perks with high ceilings - Aftercare and Autodidact are two good examples.

    Agitation is fun to hit cocky survivors.

    Also part of the windmill build: Agitation + Iron Grasp + Mad Grit

    for survivor, head on- fun perk to use

    for killer, shadowborne- its an awful perk but the fov feels amazing

  • StardustSpeedwayStardustSpeedway Member Posts: 828

    I always say Leader in these posts because I feel like it's such a great perk that's underrated, but for the sake of changing it up, I'll mention Visionary.

    I love being able to see gens especially on maps where they're a bit tough to locate like Midwich/The Game/Treatment Center.

  • TheClownIsKingTheClownIsKing Member Posts: 6,278

    Bond (plus Open Handed)

    I feel very naked whenever I forgo Bond because it just tells me so much all the time, even when I DON’T see some survivors auras.

  • TheClownIsKingTheClownIsKing Member Posts: 6,278

    I almost exclusively stick to Bond, Leader, Open Handed, and Visionary these days.

    I want to always know where objectives are, know exactly what else is going on in my area, be healed quickly, or heal others quick (if a team mate helps), follow someone to a powered exit gate switch so they can open the gate faster.

    I just find it to be the most universally useful solo build that helps be a really good teammate.

    For killer I love lullaby even if it is massacred before it gets a stack.

    For survivor I love technician since I am not great at hitting greats so the muffled explosion is nice.

  • Mister_HoldoutMister_Holdout Member Posts: 3,144

    Spine Chill. I honestly feel naked without it.

  • KingofLeonIIKingofLeonII Member Posts: 4

    I have to go Leader and self care for Survivor and for Killer is BBQ & Chili and Devour soap
