Why do the killers carry the survivors on one shoulder?

Its not even the most efficient way to carry someone. Nemesis is the worst since he basically holds them with one arm. The lack of proper carrying techniques is setting a bad example honestly.

    Drag them to the hook kicking and screaming?

    The survivors are pretty much docile & passive to the killers whenever they touch them. I just don't see why they can't use proper carrying techniques at this point.

    As a person with lower back issues, these killers are really setting themselves up for issues later on.

    Being strong doesn't mean OSHA violations don't apply to you. It could be stressing his arms for all we know, repeated labor can do that to anyone.

    It kinda makes sense why some of them do. Mikey has the strength to do it. Nurse is telekinetic

    I figured the Entity gave them all a strength boost to lend a helping hand in getting those sacrifices on hooks.

    Nemesis should drag them by the foot with one hand & then fling them onto the hook

    Okay not sure if this thread was intended as a Joke or not but it brings to mind a question. Is there labor unions for killers and survivors? Like exactly how would that work? Maybe the next killer will actually be a lawyer who takes the term Cut-throat literally.

    I could see a killer like nemesis or Oni using a survivor as a club on the way do the hook.

    The Lawyer comes with three unique Perks...

    Litigation, Jury Duty, and Plea Bargain!

    I've now got an image of killers giving survivors piggy-banks to the hook!

    I think a better question is not how they carry them, but why they pick them up by their excretory orifice.

    Obviously, there's some entity trickery going on. How else could someone like Susie lift a mass of a man like David with ease, I'm guessing these killers juice on blight serum before each trial?

    I’m still waiting for a perk that lets me carry at least 2 survivors at the same time and still be capable of vaulting or breaking pallets etc..

    Given the survivors are struggling freely there isn't really a safe way to carry them without restraint, the most effective would be an over the shoulder firemans carry but with a struggling recipient that can be dangerous to both.

    If you want to be realistic killers should first place survivors in a restraint position and call another killer for help moving them first or simply move them to a safe location. For survivors the most effective means of struggling would simply to let themselves go floppa and be deadweight.

    You have no idea how hard it was to think of all of those so late st night. My favorite ones are Fraddy, Legion, and Trickster.

    Easier to animate would be my guess. You don’t have to worry as much about the survivor clipping into the killer’s body.

    In-universe: probably because it leaves their other hand free to swing their weapon.

    I want to be held and swaddled like babie.

    So you're saying that all Killers should copy Executioner's ability and teleport Survivors away, but onto Hooks instead. 😜
