Broken Key Desperately Needs A Separate Model

The broken key, conceptually, is one of my favorite items because of its addons. The ability to see the killer in a jungle gym loop is incredibly helpful, and seeing survivors is good for indoor maps where it's hard to find unfinished generators.

The problem with this item is that it's visually indistinguishable from the best item in the game, and killers are exponentially more likely to equip their best perks and try to take you out of the game as quickly as possible just to remove that potential item from play.

The only way the broken key can get significant use without being a complete double-edged sword is for it to have a distinct model. Even so much as a recolor would be sufficient, but it's not worth the risk to yourself in its current state.

    I agree with this, but they also just to reasonably nerf keys. No one is going to tunnel people with keys if they gutted like moris

    I literally equip a green key without addons to start a mind game in the lobby depending on the killers personality. They may change perks, addons, offerings, or feel an urge to chase me out of the game… get a chase daily done etc and there was no cheesy early hatch escape.

    If nobody had an item except me with my broken key, I always find it amusing post-match to see Franklin’s and a Mori when it happens.

    Being able to tell what rarity a medkit is and some way of spotting addons.. that is significantly more valuable than anything a key has going for it. Except for maybe blood amber I guess. Just my opinion.
