This happens on every match against the huntress, I get hit when the hatchet didn't even touch me, or even when I'm already behind a wall or tree
The Huntress isn't throwing hatchets. She's throwing stick grenades.
More like target seeking missiles
Take advice from Arnold. Cover yourself in mud to block the heat signature.
I dunno l don’t think projectile killers belong in this game.
with server issues, latency and general hitbox problems it makes them way to inconsistent for both sides.
Isn't this due to latency?
From my understanding, what you see on your screen isn't always what the server sees, let alone what the killer sees.
I can’t tell you the amount of times when a hatchet hit a wall and me at the same time.
Haha, I should try it
Yep, happens a lot
Yeah, something similar has happened with the deadslinger, he hooks me with his gun through a wall
I think it's a huntress problem. Deathslinger doesn't have consistent phantom hits like this. Hatchets need to have a serious overhaul for a long time now.
The huntresses hitbox is bigger then deathslingers, and also the survivor leans forward while injured and the hitbox stays where their feet are, so they lean out of their hitbox, and then add latency then its a party.
Its odd because despite having these hitboxes huntress still has one of the lower kill rates. At this stage her wind ups and hatchet velocity speeds are dependent on the width and ridiculous aoe. What scares me is the thought that they get the hatchets right and not bother messing with her hatchets wind up or hatchet velocity speed and were down another killer. Last I checked the billy changes and nurse changes destroy the playrate they once had and has cast them pretty far into much lower play rates. Which is a shame because nearly all the killer above are way more fun then playing against a freddy, clown,hag or spirit.
It's such a shame... I think Huntress would be a ver fun killer to go against if her hatchet hitboxes weren't the size of a truck. Lol
Unfortunately while having low ping to the server won't help you against a high ping huntress you won't be able to play reactively.
They would have to change the netcode to server calculating hits rather than the killers client. Should of been done with the introduction of dedicated servers.
Having a good connection is always better in any other pvp game (besides dark souls and p2p games). Dbd is an exception to this for some strange reason. Sure lagging killers will struggle to land hits but tough luck.
So just screw all my homies in Australia who don't have a Dedicated Server and get 250 ping at best?
Seems weird to alienate a whole continent but okay.
honestly they should just change the hatchets to a m1a2 Abrams, it'll make the hitboxes actually accurate
Australia does have a server.
Australia has a dedicated server. I live in Perth.
..and yes if you have 250 ping you shouldn't be having an advantage over a player with 5 ping.
It's because naturally huntress is difficult and not all Huntress matches have lagging killers. Makes sense the kill rate is lower.
If you want huntress to have good hitboxes then make her 115% because this is currently the only way to hit survivors who are decent at looping
??? I have never had an issue hitting good survivors as Huntress, and I rarely see any Huntress players struggle against almost any survivor even before dedicated servers when her hatchets were semi-reasonable. You might wanna look at some guides if you're struggling against good survivors, ScottJund's Huntress guide is still relevant.
Don't believe anybody saying it's just latency. Her hatchets have a hitbox the size of a basketball.
From my experience,most hatchet hits from Huntress are fair unless they are super laggy but that's because of bad ping on the killer rather than bad hitboxes
Its not just hatchets, Head On is busted too. At least hatchets are moving so latency is a thing. I dont get how head on gets bigger every update and now it reaches about 8m in front
Oh great you can do "good" in her, tell me why would I play her over Nurse/Freddy/Spirit if you nerfed her hatchets EVER?
I don't play her aside from depipping in the first place because my monitor is ######### huge and when I play at daytimes I can literally not see a thing on most maps anyways so for me there's absolutely 0 interest in getting better with her. I don't play this game enough to care.
Killer Hitboxes in general are absolutely fine and do not need fixing, I already hate how I don't hit jackshit when playing oni.
its usually due to the killer playing from jupiter. ive gone against green ping huntresses and pretty much all hatchets hit me when i see them touch my guy. but still, most of them have yellow/red ping for some reason.
WTH they're round and not thin as they should be? Also Apparantely hatchets have two hitboxes one is super small so you can hit through shack wall hole and second is Huge and is for survivors
Her hatchets are actually semi trucks
So far as I can tell, the closest listed server is in Singapore. I remember a lot of Australian players freaking out when the servers where first introduced.
Apologies if this is no longer the case @Zozzy
Add another count to the Dizzy converting the thread into killer too weak.
