Anyone else almost never bring items when playing survivor?

ShapedShaped Member Posts: 5,323

I can understand flashlights, they are useful, interactive and can be fun. Everything else I find really uneccessary and not appealing at all.

If I play survivor a lot I also just sit at max bp.

But if I play killer I want add ons all the time and never feel like playing without them even if they are not that good.

    I like to stockpile most of my items tbf. Like, I'll bring items to trade with my friends (green medkit with good add-ons for a purple flashlight, for example), and if I'm actually in the mood to play semi-seriously I'll bring a medkit, but my usual build is Blast Mine/Flashbang/Head On/Quick and Quiet. Don't need items when I have Flashbang to make me cackle.

  • I don't like bringing anything over rare items because im afraid ill die and lose them haha

    I prefer finding an item and escaping with it to hoard in my inventory. I run Flashbang though so now it's not often I leave with an item.

    I run healing perks 99% of my games but I almost never bring an item. It'd clearly be beneficial for me to use medkits with my build just to optimize, but I'm already satisfied with my fast heals and I don't want to risk being tunneled (A sweaty killer won't hesitate to tunnel out a good item)

    If you don't bring any items when you're playing survivor, you lose nothing and gain blood points for the effort.

    Up the Ante.

    I will usually only bring a flashlight.

  • lauraalauraa Member Posts: 2,758

    i never leave home without a brown medkit.

    I honestly don't bring items into a match too often aside from challenges/daily, and maybe a medkit or flashlight once in a while. And there's times I do but I just plain forget because of something else I was focusing on (either blood webs, perks, or distracted by something irl), so I'll load into a match wondering where my medkit is and I just go "Oh... right, I need to equip it to bring it into a trial!"

    But I definitely do agree, Shaped, even if I am more than content playing Killers with-out any add-ons, I always feel the need to have some equipped!

    I like consistency,& also i wouldn't want to become dependent on items.

  • TragicSolitudeTragicSolitude Member Posts: 5,894

    I don't bring items just because I'm a hoarder. I don't use add-ons as killer, either.

  • Warcrafter4Warcrafter4 Member Posts: 2,917

    I don't bring items often(Or I do it they are mainly browns/yellows) as they tend to be far too powerful.

    I could bring a bunch of commodious toolboxes but when I play survivor in DbD I don't want the game to end in two minutes for the same reason I don't want like two minute games on killer:

    Its just plain boring even if I am winning.

  • Rogue11Rogue11 Member Posts: 772

    I mostly stopped bringing anything when the devs decided occasionally keeping your add ons for escaping with an item was unfair.

    I only bring something if it's for a specific build I want to try or challenges, etc.

  • ReviloDBDReviloDBD Member Posts: 478

    I never bring any Items on Survivor unless it's for a Challenge.

  • ApollosApollos Member Posts: 1,052

    I like bringing items, but if I'm having a lot of bad matches in a row, I'm far less likely to.

  • humanbeing1704humanbeing1704 Member Posts: 7,426

    I only use items from chests guess who never gets hit by franklin's demise

  • JunylarJunylar Member Posts: 1,440

    I only bring items for archive challenges. And when I play killer, I avoid using addons.

  • RaSavage42RaSavage42 Member Posts: 3,401

    I didn't bring items in before but now I bring in a med-kit to heal myself (others if need be)

    I don't use any other items

    I also sit at around 500,000 BP so if I need to I have back up (survivors aren't leveled up to 50 and some killers aren't either... not prestiging anymore until they change it)

  • MarknessMarkness Member Posts: 242

    Yes I’m a hoarder, I have no shame in showing off how many things I have that I’ll never use!

  • C3ToothC3Tooth Member Posts: 4,880

    Because how the game work, everyone should bring something into match (even if its worthless).

    You can earn 12k BP as survivor per match, thats enough for 1 Brown item, 2 Brown addon, 1 Brown offering.

    You can save good stuff all you want, but never get into a match without bring in anything. You will never deplete your inventory, unless you bring in stuffs and constantly DC.

  • AurelleAurelle Member Posts: 2,594

    I rarely ever bring items into a match because I like collecting them.

  • ZonkyWizardZonkyWizard Member Posts: 568

    I'm always bringing in an item.

  • danielmaster87danielmaster87 Member Posts: 6,612

    No, I don't like actively denying myself or my team an advantage.

  • unluckycombounluckycombo Member Posts: 582

    I'll bring an item when I can, but I have both a hoarding issue with items (I have so many yellow medkits on Jake from hours upon hours of chest build on him...) and keeping my items, add-ons and offerings at certain numbers, so I have a hard time forcing myself to use them. (I like to keep everything at an even number, so unless it's an odd number already, I have a hard time letting myself bring it, because I'm p much commiting myself to it for multiple games until I lose two.)

  • StardustSpeedwayStardustSpeedway Member Posts: 864

    I don't bother to bring items during matches either since I always prefer to loot chests for items. I usually run bond + leader to get healed so I don't really need medkits. I'm horrible with flashlights and I find tool boxes to be worthless since the charges run out quickly lol.

    That's a lot lol. I notice a lot of people with items in lobbies tho.

    And yeah I probably also have the hoarding issue since I do it in other games too. Always pile on stuff that I never use. Just in case I need them, and that day will never come.

    But I am not really interested in surv bloodwebs unless it's perks.

  • ThiccBudhhaThiccBudhha Member Posts: 6,525

    Nah, I hoard them from escaping, though. I run plunderers. But yeah, I am vanilla. No add ons or items for me.

    I hate Survivor bloodwebs because they're so addon cluttered, while Survivor also gets a lot less BP. You can go so many webs without even finding what you wanna play.

    Ultimately, this means the best way to do it is to have a handful of setups you play, and that makes more bloodwebs useful. But I can't be bothered.

    I basically just play Emergency Medkits, because when I run out, I can play Pharmacy a few games and get some more.
