What is your favorite type of build for killer

While it may vary depending on the killer you play, what is your favorite. Do you like stacking anti gen perks, or more for an anti heal approach. Do you like brute force chase builds or meme build like agitation, iron grasp, mad grit? Or any other type I missed. Also a combination is completely fine.

    To answer the question, my favorite is anti heal. I like nurses on certain killers and pairing it with sloppy and other perks to just keep everyone injured. Helps alot with legion and Twins from my experience

    I like to mix gen regression/slowdown perks with anti-heal/insta-down perks.

    Endgame builds are really fun tbh, especially with the new Trickster perk, No Way Out.

    I prefer a mix between gen slowdown and chase. My "current" build has a certain aspect of that:

    I know it isn't the best build out there, but it has a special meaning to me. This was my first actual build with Old Freddy, and I am currently running it for nolstagia.

    Depends on the killer if they are low tier but normally double slowdown BBQ and some other perk depending on the killer. But a lot of the time with killer I am comfy with I go full 4 perks for one thing not to be effective but just to be extremely overkill. For example using sloppy, nurses, forced penance and franklins for medkits. Good luck healing. One of my favourite builds that I think is just hilarious is using 4 exposed perks like dragon, devour, haunted and rancor instadowns for ######### days. I even made things like pointless obsession build of nemesis stbfl furative and dying light. The whole point of the build is to get no stbfl and dying light stacks. a much much better version would be to swap dying for rancor and stbfl for remember me/nowayout/enduring/bloodwarden.

    Meme builds. It changes, there's no specific build I stick to, but I often focus on doing one dumb thing during a match.

    Meme builds or off meta. My favourite at the moment is gear head and oppression

    I have 2. One hit down builds & gen regression builds.

    Survivors aren't that hard to find for me unless they decide to become one with the map.

    I don't play Killer often and I don't usually play very seriously, but I typically use Monitor and Abuse and Rancor. Those are usually two of my main perks I like using. I also like using Haunted Ground just to put a little startle into Survivors. Like..."Surprise!" only it's...not a good one... xD

    My favorite types of builds for killers are the ones that are built around how their powers work, or completely change their gameplay to something survivors aren't expecting. Some Examples:

    "Rock & Hard Place" Plague: Dying Light, Thanatophobia, Surge, BBQ & Chili/Surveillance. This build forces survivors to choose which path of pain they are gonna take: Cleanse, and they do gens at the normal speed but give her the best ranged attack in the game, Don't Cleanse, and They suffer with excessively slow gen progression speed by mid-late game. It's built entirely around enhancing her power to become a bane to the survivors no matter which choice they make.

    "Ninja" Doc: Monitor & Abuse, Nurses Calling, Pop Goes the Weasel, Whispers + Calm 3 and Calm 2. There are other variations for the last 3 perks but the main combo is M&A + The Calm addons, which increases his TR to 36 Meters when out of a chase and static blast is fully charged, but Decrease it to 12m for 1 minute after using his Static blast, essentially giving him a smaller TR than a EW2 Shape. This is a Highly unexpected way for anyone to play the Doc and throws survivors off every time. It essentially completely changes his gameplay mechanics to focus more on stealth instead of being the omnipresent tormentor he's known to be.

    "######### TR?" Legion: Furtive Chase, Dark Devotion, Tinkerer, (Insert your choice Perk here) + Iridescent Button. Your TR Fluctuates so much in size that survivors never have a good idea of where the hell you are, or how close. All they know is that you can be anywhere really, and it's freaking them out!

    i reither play low tier killer with Enfury and pop+surge or bamboozle instead of surge (wraith most likely) or S tier killer like spirit with pop surge sloppy and stridor. I mean. She's annoying af to go against, 4 more annoying perks won't make it way more miserable.

    Idk I like Surge and Pop. Rewarding for playing well, can't lose those perks, they stack on top of each other and Enfury is just funny to use especially when someone Dead Hards to a pallet which I can just ignore.

    Max Aggression

    SF, Enduring, Bamboozle and either Brutal Strength if the killer i'm playing doesn't have a way to quick break pallets and either BBQ or something for tracking on killers that can

    Do i lose quite often because i have no slowdown? yes, do i give a damn? not in the slightest because oh my god is this build fun to use

    I’m an aggressive style killer over gen defence, I rarely use slowdown perks on my killers.

    with my main huntress I use bbq, discordance, bitter murmur and I’ll mix it up with the 4th. I’ve been using agitation recently.

    not a fan of hex perks at all, especially ruin undying, hate it as a survivor so I never use it.
