Will Trapper no longer be considered the worst killer for at least a while?

Simple for everyone who said Trapper was the worst, with current buffs, will he no longer be considered the worst killer anymore? At least a while

    I mean it's a very needed buff and all but he could very well still be the worst killer. It's hard to say.

    I don't know. Trapper is always going to he inherently weaker than a good portion of the roster because he has to set up. Killer's like Blight and Wraith can just instantly begin to chase and oppress.

    He will move from F-tier to C-tier. He still won’t be able to compete against a good swf without tunneling and camping and having his good add-ons equipped.

    If they made disarming traps have a drawback for survivors, and made their hit boxes wider so they can’t walk around them, he’d move up to B+ tier.

  • Huge_BushHuge_Bush Member Posts: 3,053

    Why must you spread this falsehood. Queen of the Snoot will always be the best killer. No other killer can lure out survivors and have them ask her to kill them in return for a Boop.

    His buff encourages basement camp even more, u don't need to waste time to gather traps, just track down survivor and hope basement is close.. So i expect Trapper with basement addons.

  • GamerEzraGamerEzra Member Posts: 853

    I don't think this buff makes him stronger.

    It just makes it possible to use different addons.

    He's not the worst Killer as it is because Legion exists.

  • DBD78DBD78 Member Posts: 2,624

    You won't go from worst killer in the game to C-tier with such a small buff, it's just a brown addon added to his basekit. The question is if he will still be the worst killer or if he could surpass Pig or whoever you think is the second worst killer in the game. Or Myers I mean they are going to nerf his best addon/addons as it seems.

  • AneurysmAneurysm Member Posts: 4,445

    We'll wait and see I guess. In terms of addons trapper and old wraith had a similar thing where they both have nice addons that could work well together but you only really had one addon slot. People underestimated the difference it would make wraith having two available.

  • DBD78DBD78 Member Posts: 2,624

    Wraith got his purple windstorm as basekit, and Trapper should have gotten the purple bag. That said yes you are right that Trapper can now use two addons not having to worry about the bag one. But his other addons are not as good as Wraiths either.

  • xEaxEa Member Posts: 2,972

    As long as Legion, Myers and Pig exist, Trapper is not the worst killer.

  • C3ToothC3Tooth Member Posts: 4,306

    The best counter to Trapper is have low graphic setting, brighten screen. Then its easy to see his trap.

    This is why I dont want to have him carry all traps (that would be unfair for those who play Ultra & dark screen). I want disarming traps giving some risk.

  • I still don't think he's that great, because you can literally achieve what they are going for right now.

    Use the Trapper sack add on

    Pray to the entity that you get 6 traps on the map

    And then use whatever other add on you want.

    Despite that you still need to be really good at trapper to get good value out of his power.

  • Squirrel_ThiccSquirrel_Thicc Member Posts: 2,678

    His buff was just a quality of life change for him. It won't actually make him any stronger in my opinion so probably will still be the worst.

  • glitchboiglitchboi Member Posts: 5,408

    Myers will probably be the worst killer, either him or Pig. Trapper will be barely above both on my tier list.

  • Friendly_BlendetteFriendly_Blendette Member Posts: 2,355

    I never thought he was the worst. Bad but not worst.

  • xenotimebongxenotimebong Member Posts: 2,803

    He’ll feel less frustrating to play and be a little bit stronger, but a change like this isn’t going to make him take Spirit’s place or anything.

    Trapper will never be a meta killer in the game as it is now because he has a slow start, he takes time to set up and he’s considerably weakened by good awareness, and knowledge of maps and common trap placements (and you see survivors with these things more and more as you go up the ranks).

    The meta killers all have decent mobility, strong anti-loop and good synergy with the meta perks. Trapper doesn’t really have any of that.

  • YordsYords Member Posts: 5,549

    It will, he will not be forced to run a trapper sack which means more addons and we haven't even seen the reworked addons yet.

  • El_GingeroEl_Gingero Member Posts: 1,147

    Depends how how his addons are being changed. He could just be more consistent or he could be a bit stronger too.

  • ThiccBudhhaThiccBudhha Member Posts: 5,705

    Eh, a lot of asterisks will be needed. Like, Trapper is no longer worse than Pinhead without hoarder/Franklin's. Something like that? It also depends on if Pig gets a substantial buff with the add on pass instead of just a Tampered Timer nerf. But realistically, all 3 of these suck and you would be better of playing any other killer people pretend are nearly that bad. Michael, Clown and Legion are typically the ones that people somehow think are worse than Trapper and Pig. How? Who knows.

  • Warcrafter4Warcrafter4 Member Posts: 2,888

    Its a clown style rework:

    Add a low rarity add-on and nerfed his others add-ons(His purple bag was shown to have been nerfed into the ground).

    So much like the clow his viability won't change as they haven't addressed any of his underlying issues.

  • EvilJoshyEvilJoshy Member Posts: 5,094

    I never considered trapper bottom of the list. He's down there but I've seen some trappers destroy once they're setup.

  • YankusYankus Member Posts: 501

    He'll still be one of the worst, while this update is nice, it's not enough to make him viable against decent groups. He needs his traps to already be in good locations and armed from the start to really have a chance.

  • CrowmanCrowman Member Posts: 4,195

    While he's getting nice needed buffs, they don't exactly fix the issues that are keeping him down in the bottom tier of killers.

    At the end of the day he's still a killer that has to lose gens to set up his power and even if survivors trigger his power it doesn't guarantee that he gets a down since he still has to reach the survivor.

  • DragonMasterDarrenDragonMasterDarren Member Posts: 2,021

    you can put sprinkles on a badly made cake but it won't change that it's a badly made cake

  • knight_killerknight_killer Member Posts: 51

    I don't think Trapper has ever been the worst killer in the game, that goes to Pig or Twins easily. The buff isn't really a buff either it's quality of life changes anyways, getting rid of useless add-ons and the purple bag was nerfed pretty hard.

  • CrowmanCrowman Member Posts: 4,195

    He's getting an average of +1 trap spawning on the map and +1 trap in hand & carry cap. His base-kit is being buffed.
