So, do y'all like being dragged around loops by Deathslinger?

PilotPilot Member Posts: 1,158

It's honestly one of the best feelings in this game.

Or when Deathslinger drags himself around a loop and uses you as an anchor. He lets go at the last second before it breaks, swings, and hits you around the entire loop. This is one of my favorites.

Oh, oh OH !! Or when Deathslinger is behind you for like 4 seconds while you try to dodge his shots by going left and right in an unpredictable pattern, you dead hard to a pallet, he shoots you as soon as you put the pallet down and drags himself around the loop....Oh, baby, this hits the spot, this is my favorite moment in all of DBD.


I have been on both ends.

If you use Monitor on Deathslinger you honestly disgust me.

    Most of the Deathslinger I've faced use Monitor and for good reason.. Not to mention STBL

    Yesterday I've faced 4 and honestly think I've had of enough of DBD for the remainder of the week. All with monitor... Also, a couple of them loved Tinkerer.

    With monitor I can only hear his Terror Radius once he's aimed his gun at my rear end. Sometimes, I can feel the harpoon before I feel him approaching. Killers, if u wonder why some people use spine chill.... just remember... Deathslinger with Monitor & Abuse exists... At least, this is one of the reasons.

    Or even better if you want to get behind something to block his chain but deathslinger realises he can just walk backwards to prevent any movement

    I honestly rarely go against Slinger. Mostly Huntress. I get that he can be very frustrating when he just shoots you and your distance on him doesnt matter if he hits the shot and can pull you in but thats literally all he has in his kit. Lethal but completely lacking in 4v1 and map pressure. For those reasons I dont really mind facing him. I bait him to miss a few times and get a decent chase and that can win the game vs him.

    Happy to disgust you. 😉

    I like when you get shot in a way that makes it impossible for them to hit you, so you don’t even try to break the chain, and force the slinger to swing at the air.

  • AneurysmAneurysm Member Posts: 5,241

    I've never seen any complaints about slinger that say he takes no skill.

  • PhasmamainPhasmamain Member Posts: 10,215

    Yeah maybe it’s because I’m on console but I’m never been able to get the hang of him. Compare that to me playing huntress and winning most matches fairly easily

    Deathslinger is not your friend. He is your enemy. Your enemy will always annoy and stymie you. That's the whole gist of a PvP game.

  • CrypticghoulCrypticghoul Member Posts: 547

    Honestly I really don't think he does because of quickscoping and M&A. Just by merely existing in line of sight without shooting you force survivors to juke around and lose a ton of distance. Sure you can be really good and land some crazy shots but it's really not necessary as just the threat of him shooting is enough most of the time.

    And having such a small terror radius with no lullaby like the other ranged killers allows him to walk up on survivors unless they're both out in the open and see him coming.

  • KebekKebek Member Posts: 3,676

    It's a high skill to master, chase specialist killer who lacks at everything else. Of course he's going to be very strong in chase, if you want to beat him in it, you need to seriously outplay him with some insane reads, not just hope for the best.

    I love playing him and facing him, much more entertaining then far more boring M1 killer gameplay.

  • PilotPilot Member Posts: 1,158

    Well, one's a perk that can be used once or twice a match. If not at all.

    The other is using a perk to make DS terror radius practically non-existent.

    I've played him myself, I know what he's capable of.

  • MadLordJackMadLordJack Member Posts: 8,815

    Now, to answer you... No, those survivors absolutely suck. Randomly tapping to the side doesn't slow you down and makes the shot significantly harder. Plus, quickscoping is extremely ######### hard and requires pinpoint accuracy with no aim.

  • NamelessNameless Member Posts: 834

    I love Deathslinger for exactly that reason! God, nothing is more enjoyable after a rough day at work... Those Deathslinger shots in the distance are like music to my ears! I have to say though, the best part of the experience by far is when the entity finally takes you to heaven so you no longer have to waste any braincells on trying to dodge an undodgable harpoon.

  • WishIcouldmainWishIcouldmain Member Posts: 3,973

    In my opinion he needs to have that phenomenal 1v1 or else he'd be trash. Because

    1. No mobility

    2. Weak snowball

    3. No slowdown in his kit.

  • CrypticghoulCrypticghoul Member Posts: 547

    I'm not just saying these things, I have actually played several hours of Deathslinger and have over 1000 hours playing both sides. His aim always goes to the same spot on the screen with no variation or sway and always has 100% accuracy where you point it no matter how quickly you shoot it after readying. It's really not hard at all if you've played any other shooter for more than a couple of hours.

    And no, those survivors don't suck. If they didn't try to juke (granted, most survivors try to juke too much but it's a complete guessing game for them) or look back to check if Deathslinger has line of sight I'd say they do suck but the reality is that his mere existence creates a lose-lose situation for the survivor unless he shoots early and misses, which is the same thing Behaviour said was problematic about Pyramid Head's power when they reworked his power.

    I will say that I don’t like going against slinger but he’s definitely not the least fun to verse. And his map pressure is kind’ve weak so even though his chase is strong you can kind of just pre-drop omega safe pallets and waste his time. I just wish he had some kind of wind up like huntress so survivor’s even had just a second to react, that’s my only real complaint about him though.

  • glitchboiglitchboi Member Posts: 5,416

    Yeah... I love it. I'm a masochist.

  • SonzaishinaiSonzaishinai Member Posts: 6,746

    Cackling cowboy noises

    my favorite is when deathslinger are able to snipe you through small holes in the wall.

    I can't even be mad at that

  • woundcowboywoundcowboy Member Posts: 1,306

    People saying “good slingers don’t miss” implies that they don’t think he takes much skill. It is actually really difficult to hit shots against good survivors.

  • xBEATDOWNSxxBEATDOWNSx Member Posts: 636

    Yep. Love facing Evil Clint Eastwood. He's honestly one of my favorite killers to go against and the first one I ever prestiged on Xbox.

  • A_Skinny_LegendA_Skinny_Legend Member Posts: 877

    Ikr it's so enjoyable, but what can you do. People want easy games so they opt for skilless easy killers.

    I also do it too, I play spirit or any other killer that requires such little thought whenever I want to relax and basically play the game on autopilot, like one of those mobile " games" where you just stare at the characters fighting or whatever.

    For slinger, I mean I get why people would choose him, survivors can't dodge his little bullet because it moves so fast so it gives the killer control in that aspect. It's on the killer to mess up, most slingers just wait for the survivor to vault so that they are stuck in an animation and then shoot, so easy.

    If the loop is unsafe I don't see why he shouldn't be able to drag you around. There plenty of loops where even with dragging, the chain breaks before you can get to the survivor. What is bullshit however, is the free zoning by spamming M2, that really needs to be addressed. It feels cheap to use and be on the receiving end of.

    I love going up against Deathslinger, but it's so rare for me. Kinda makes me sad
