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.
For one it allows them to attack anyone trying to interfere with their other hand.
Also Nemesis is a freaking monster that can bend metal, a survivor is like a feather to him.
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.
Just pick up the survivor and carry them in your pocket. Like a kangaroo carries around a little joey.
Gosh. No more discomfort. No more struggles.
It kinda makes sense why some of them do. Mikey has the strength to do it. Nurse is telekinetic
Okay...here we go.
Trapper has lots of experience with heavy lifting, as he did work in his father's mine. Heaving up a survivor to his shoulder should be no problem.
Wraith has likely been working hard labor jobs since coming to America, so he's definitely got some muscle. However, it's possible signs of back damage are already showing, as you can see whenever he is standing still he has his head tilted to the side, as that is probably to most comfortable position for his spine.
Hillbilly has worked manual labor his entire life, plus he's already got a hunch. I doubt his father or others taught him proper lifting techniques and he had to just go with what was most comfortable/efficient.
Nurse has some sort of telekinetic force that allows her to break pallets and generators, so I assume she must be using it to pick up survivors.
Myers is pure evil. He probably lift people up without proper lifting technique just to make people angry because he's just so evil.
Hag seems to already be crippled slightly due to the cannibalism. However, she probably has some sort of hex that allows her to be able to summon some ungodly amount of strength to lift survivors.
Doctor is filled with wires and other metal bits, likely reinforcing his body and allowing such fluid movement.
Huntress has years of experience transporting kills to her home and has built up quite a bit of muscle in the process. If she can drag a bear through the woods for several miles, she lift one person off the ground.
Bubba should know better, as he has had years of experience lifting people in order to have a nice family dinner.
Freddy is a dream demon and is likely using his nightmare powers to make us perceive improper lifting techniques. The true nightmare was spinal damage all along.
Pig has likely rigged up some sort of lifting contraption in her arm to help lift people up onto her shoulder. She was the apprentice to Jigsaw after all, years of mechanical engineering could allow for such a thing.
Clown is probably numb on painkillers and other drugs he can't even feel the pain his back is in whenever he lifts someone up.
Spirit is an incorporeal being and as such does not contain a skeletal system.
Legion are still young and rebellious. They don't care about proper lifting because you're not even their real Dad okay!
Plague is basically rotting from the inside out and her nerves can't even function properly. Bending down and lifting is the least of her worries at any given point.
Ghostface has always been a troll and is doing it on purpose just for the lols. He's so meticulous if he wasn't doing it for laughs he has some other reason for doing it surely.
Demogorgon... I'm not even going to pretend to know the anatomy of a creature from the upside down, so I'll just assume it's doing probably upside-downian lifting techniques.
Oni is probably just full of adrenaline all the time from all his rage he can't even feel pain. Even if he did, it would just make him angrier and more powerful.
Deathslinger is already crippled with that leg brace. He probably couldn't bend over if he wanted. That's the only way he can pick anything up.
Pyramid Head is technically just a manifestation of torment and improper lifting is probably just meant to torment all that witness it.
Blight is just filled with whatever is in his serums, which probably increases his strength and pain tolerance allowing for him to lift survivors effortlessly.
Charlotte had been carrying Victor around inside her chest for most of her life. Not to mention all that scrap and junk in her bag(?). With the deformity from being conjoined and the back strength built up from all that stuff, I doubt it's much of an issue for her to lift survivors.
Trickster just loves being the center of attention. Lifting improperly is just one of his many was for eyes to land on him. Don't fall for it, it's exactly what he wants.
Nemisis was designed for abuse. He can take gun fire, rockets, and even acid. The guy can probably one arm bench press a tank. He's probably reinforced with so much stuff nothing can stop him. Not even a pulled muscle.
Man that really stretched my creative thinking.
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.
Thanks. That was exhausting.
Hey, no. Nemesis is perfect, plus he has the strength to do that lmfao
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. 😜
Carried bridal style.
I will always campaign to be carried bridal style by the killer.
