For me it is kindred for survivor and BBQ for killer.
It's very quickly become Lethal Pursuer, it's such a good perk.
Borrowed Time for Survivor
Killer I don't really have one since it's impossible to get a perk you want when you nearly all teachables available. But it'd be either whispers or bbq
survivor- small game
It used to be Self Care but I've evolved and embraced my Inner Strength. Now it's Spine Chill
On killer, it's Whispers. I hate looking for people and it helps.
BBQ and BT
Just a fun perk
BBQ and Discordance.
Self Care. If I get unlucky in the bloodweb I'll play without it on that survivor but a lot of the time I'll toss it on. I play too recklessly nowadays to be repairing a generator in a dead zone while injured. Give me the blood laced Sprint Burst and lets go ya big ugly leper. Yee haw.
All depends on what I want to do so I can't say there's one perk I always have to have
I feel like Monitor And Abuse is good on every Killer besides the most dedicated of stealthy ones.
Messing with when a Survivor should start running is more powerful than most would realize imo
Fixated. People really underestimate how useful it is to be able to walk at nearly sprinting speed, plus you look a lot less stupid than you would with urban. Seeing your own scratchmarks is also surprisingly useful, it tells me where the killer is going to be looking for when i break the chase, then i can just fast-walk away and get to safety. Its an extremely useful perk.
If not fixated then prove thyself. Love that perk.
It moves at nearly sprint speed?
Crouching = 25%(50% with Urban Evasion) speed.
Walking = 50%(70% with Fixated) speed
Running = 100%(150% with Sprinting Perks) speed.
For survivor, self care. Half of the time I can't find a teammate to heal me, so I kind of rely on this perk.
For killer, BBQ. I mainly use it for the extra BP.
Thats what i've noticed. You move pretty fast, a survivor sprinting next to you will take about 3 or so seconds before they're fully ahead of you. Its quite fast, faster than urban since urban is just adding additional speed to the already slow speed of crouching.
Lethal Pursuer finding those spawns so early and right on them is huge
I absolutely love MAA, but I really struggle to find a place for it. The only killer I really use it on is Pig, and that's when I'm in the mood for a silly game.
Its BBQ and I suspect that is a popular choice
Lithe and Devour Hope
Iron Will/Lethal Pursuer
I dont have it, is it really good or just good?
In my opinion it's the strongest early-game perk by a wide margin, and the benefit it provides for the early game is worth trading away a perk slot after the first nine seconds.
Knockout, it's the only slowdown I use.
Depends on killer. On Nurse/Blight/Billy/Spirit/Legion/other higher mobility killers, its debatably their best perk
On killer: Discordance, I can't let them crank out a key generator in 40 seconds.
On survivor: Botany + Desperate Measures, default healing is painfully slow.
Iron Will for sure. It gets pretty grating hearing your Survivor constantly pitch a fit, and the denial of information to the Killer is definitely a welcome bonus. I also frequently use Lithe, it's my favorite exhaustion perk!
Shadowborn, took a big break when Pinhead was released and FOV perks broke because I can't play Blight without it anymore.
