starstruck on nurse is too overpowered

I was playing nurse with this build to see if it it's really good, man, there's no way to win against this, my build was agitation, starstruck, infectious and bbq, with no anti-gens perks, and I didn't lose a match, nurse already has a huge chase potentional, with that she is unstoppable, I love go against a good nurse, but, this build is cancer, starstruck is supposed to be a anti tank perk, like mad grit, but it can be used out of control in some killers, like nurse, u can easily say that, but it have 60 second of coldown, this is a completely bs, 30 seconds of coldown are being used, so is basically 30 seconds of coldown, Im my opinion this perk will be like undying, nerfed in 2 months

What u guys think about starstruck

    It's fine for me, even on Nurse. I never had a real issue while playing against a Killer who had Starstruck.

    As someone that plays mostly survivor I haven't had a problem with it. Have noticed random teammates have a problem but they are making dumb plays while exposed. I think Starstruck is fine where it's currently at, survivors just need to adjust and play smarter.

    I don't believe either should be changed. Nurse I personally think is simply stuck where she is. And we can't nerf Startstruck for having good synergy. Then we should nerf Stridor because it's so good on Spirit.

    Starstruck is in an unusual place that it is either God like or nearly useless, depending on the killer. Nerfing it for the sake of one killer, to the detriment of the rest, seems like a bad idea to me, but at the same time, yeah, it can be pretty disgusting on nurse (or max terror radius doctor, actually).

    Solution? No idea tbh.

    The perk is a meme. Even on Nurse I haven't gone down to that perk a single time yet.

    I think Starstruck is fine. The problem in this scenario isn’t the perk.

    The only time where star struck was a bit scary for me, was against a hag. Bc against every other killer i just run away in a atraight line and nothing happens. But even the hag didnt get a down.

    wait what was the nurse wearing cuz i think that's me

    I'm a nurse main with 1.5k hours

    I think nurse needs a nerf, but only after we fix the fact that she is the only viable killer in tournament level play.

    I can 4k with 0 perks consistently with her.

    Starstruck isn't the problem.

    Honestly I think, if one of this perk were an issue, than I would rather call out Infectious over Starstruck. But even without it I wouldn't be sure, if it's not just you playing good enough as Nurse or that survivors you've faced weren't good enough to break the combo.

    Nerfing a perk because it's good on one killer is bad. If you nerf Stridor, then it becomes even more useless on killers other than Spirit. It also doesn't fix Spirit's problems.

  • nursewannabenursewannabe Member Posts: 1,075

    True, let's actually nerf spirit please, I don't mind this option

  • PhasmamainPhasmamain Member Posts: 9,379

    This is more a problem with nurse than starstruck

  • RiskyKaraRiskyKara Member Posts: 561

    Actually would Starstruck be good on a spirit? I wonder...

  • GoodBoyKaruGoodBoyKaru Member Posts: 18,560

    nah, spirit has a 24m teror radius so it's a lot less effective than the angry napkin who comes equipped with a 32m one

  • ShamelessPigMainShamelessPigMain Member Posts: 1,836

    Really, anything on nurse is overpowered if you have enough practice.

  • MrDardonMrDardon Member Posts: 3,233

    Especially Bamboozle, I don't use this Perk on her or I'll feel to bad afterwards. It makes her literally overpowered and uncounterable.

  • Dr_LoomisDr_Loomis Member Posts: 3,703

    Starstruck combined with Infectious Fright can be very dangerous. It depends on a) if the killer choses to pursue the survivor who screams and b) how well the survivor can evade the scene.

    Overall Starstruck on it's own is a good perk. Using it with killers other than Trickster can surprise unexpecting body-blocking survivors.

    starstruck is a perk that offers actual strategic counterplay. like discordance, it can be countered by spreading out. and a solid build will obviously be effective on the strongest killer in the game. nurse is incredibly strong with any perks.

    Currently it cause exposed for 30sec and will linger as long as you stay in TR (while large TR makes it easy to cause Expose, the linger mechanic itself make the perk even stronger.

    There is a way, instead of using TR, replace with 30m range of Killer carrying a survivor. Exposed for 30sec and will linger while in TR.

  • TrickstaaaaaTrickstaaaaa Member Posts: 1,252

    It's not overpowered on any other killer. Plus I only have one 1 encountered with a nurse who ran startstruck. It's 1 in 1000 chances you will see those sweaty nurses who run this. Not enough to nerf the perk. If any killer perk should be nerf it should be NOED.
