    depends, what's your preferred playstyle? And what perks do you have already?

    Leatherface because he has BBQ and Chili. That perk is great for farming bloodpoints.

    Clown as he has pop and bamboozle which are two perks that help a lot

    Leatherface He's easy to use has BBQ

    Oh well forget what I said then. Not sure what play style you prefer so I can’t really tell you directly which killer to get. I’ll post a link to one of Otz’s videos that can help you decide which killer you want:

    Plague is great perk wise and so is hag. Corrupt Intervention and Infectious fright are both great for aggressive playstyles and devour hope and ruin are great for hag.

    ghostface is pretty fun, decent perks. if you want good perks like pwyf, stbfl and an entire killer (also a lot of survivor stuff if you care about it). plague has some sick perks, but shes not what you want if you only care about the killer. pyramid head is a strong killer, not the best perks but a great killer.

    I'd go with Doctor myself. Of the locked killers he's one of the easiest to figure out how to use effectively, has good range, etc. The Shape is a good one too, he's listed as hard but doesn't take that long to figure out. Getting someone like the Hag or Spirit would take some time to become really decent at and if it were me that would be a disappointing expenditure. I'd rather get a new killer that I could have fun getting to know more quickly.

    Did OP ever state which kinds of killers they most prefer to play?

    Otherwise if you like...

    -Strategic/Trap Killers (like Trapper/Hag), then you might like: Nightmare, Demogorgon, maybe Pig or Twins too.

    -Stealthy Killers (like Wraith), then you might like: Shape, Pig, or Ghost Face. Spirit and Deathslinger can also pull off some jumpscare shenanigans with the right perks and tactics.

    -Speedy Killers (like Hillbilly), then you might like: Oni, Spirit, Legion, Blight, or Twins (Victor is pretty quick).

    -"Super-Lunge" Killers (which is what I consider Nurse to be), then you might like: Pig, Spirit, Demo, or Blight.

    -Loop Disruption Killers (like Doctor), then you might like: Cannibal, Nightmare, Clown, Pig, Deathslinger, Pyramid Head, or Trickster.

    -Ranged Killers (like Huntress), then you might like: Deathslinger, Plague, Pyramid Head, or Trickster.

    If I was personally going to recommend one killer above all the others though, I'd go with Oni. He's powerful, but generally well-liked by the community. He's also been pretty bug-free recently, which is always a plus. He offers what is arguably one of the best powers in DbD, but will also force you to improve your basic looping skills in order to access it more regularly.

    Otzdarva made a very detailed video about this topic, check him out.

    But I'd say Leatherface since BBQ and Chili is a meta perk and the double bloodpoints are amazing

    Plague has the best set perks IMO. Corrupt + infectious go well in many killers and dark devotion is so freaking fun, I luv it.
