About being looped.

ASurvkillivorerASurvkillivorer Member Posts: 169

I am down to rank 5 on Xbox again. Returned to the old get messaged after every game aura that I loved before....not. This is why I deranked and never tried getting back here until recently just going with the flow.

Some survivors are so good at running in a loop around something with a pallet. That they seem to create an interesting situation for the killer. Either break the chase, OR keep running in that circle until you DO get hit by that pallet and they run to the next one. These aren't the survivors who stop by pallets or drop them early for a little space. They know exactly when they're going to hit you or if you're going to hit them. They CAN infinitely loop me if they have available pallets....

I am wondering how in the world are you supposed to deal with them in games where they can all do this? Your gens already get ran through so insanely fast. How are you supposed to down let alone kill multiple people when this happens.

    i suck at been looped....tunnelled is the worst, but hey if that's how they wish to do it, i mean who wins? Killers gain less blood points from looping, face camping...

    Honestly I try to run with killers that don't need to keep the chase, just hit back off let them get to where they are vulnerable and come back in for the down. Note I am a freddy main so this is even easier especially if you run M&A, nurses, or insidious (im running insidious 3 cause i dont have nurses or M&A).
    Actually my current build on freddy it Remember, whispers, insidious, and bitter

    Windows and pallets are a part of the game, i get annoyed at times....but eh, i believe the balance is there.

    You ignore the survivor and find the bad one in the team that doesnt know how to loop. Use him as bait for the better survivors.

    This or you just derank :wink:

    Unfortunately, with most killers, there's nothing much you can do against 4 survivors that can loop with high efficiency. The most you can do is use killers who can counter this, but that removes half the killers from your list. Hag and Trapper can stop one loop, but then they'll just run off to the next one. Doctor and Clown can screw up their loop timing, but they'll usually also be smart enough to just drop pallet or move on early against these killers to avoid getting hit. Huntress gets looped for longer, but once you're good with her, she's more likely to get a hit at the end of the loop. Spirit can turn loops into a battle of wits, but there's a chance your attempts to mind game the survivor will end up with them mindgaming you. Nurse and Legion are the only killers that can truly counter the chain pallet/vault looping gameplay of highly skilled survivors.

    Feels like Huntress was supposed to use her hatchets to help end loops earlier, but good lick throwing over what's being looped reliably .

    Pallets & windows can add to the looping but not impossible to deal with on their own. The real problem is the collision with a loops wall. Had a meg loop so well that I could not gain any ground because if I tried following the exact path the wall would snag me. I am all for the designed methods but losing out because killers are just bigger is horrible. Yes breaking chase is an option, but that should be when a survivor gains a lead in chase, not because your able to sustain a lead indefinitely.

    You leave the survivor that is good at looping, and try to find 1 that is not that good and remove him of the game as fast as possible. You can try to mindgame them, but a good lopper will watch behind them a lot of times and avoid being mindgamed.

    if all 4 of them are good at looping, then you just bend and let them do you(unless you are playing some unloopable killer like Nurse)

    You can’t fall for the bait. If they seem to be good a loops and find a great loop spot such as the meat tree on the farm maps, the Ironworks loop, or the Red Forest shack loop...break the chase. If you don’t have Ruin, you’ll get demolished easily. Gens get done quickly and you can’t waste your time on the colorful Nea when the immersed Claudettes are fixing generators.

  • VietfoxVietfox Member Posts: 3,826
    Always break the pallet asap unless the loop is small and you can mindgame easily.
    Most long chases are long because killers refuse to break the pallet.

    You have to get other players to use the pallets or catch these guys in a bad spot. Some pallets you have to break immediately, some you can leave but need to come back and break it, others you can just leave there (though I never leave them bc free points!). If you are getting looped endlessly though chances are you are either being mindgamed enough for them to make distance or you are respecting pallets.

    I almost never respect pallets I just go through them, Most of the time you can get a hit by doing that and it makes survivors less likely to do that extra loop when you chase them again. They will cut the loop short by 1 and wait at the pallet, so you swing through the pallet. Now they will be trying to hit you with a pallet so you can start respecting pallets as a way to get them to waste them. If you scare a survivor enough and condition them to drop the pallet early, they will drop it early. Sometimes it you read the drop you can just go around the loop as if you are going right for bloodlust. That scares survivors that drop the pallet because they did it in a panic and if they do that and see you just going right for bloodlust they will panic and mess up more.

    Confused survivors are scared survivors. Scared survivors screw up. Survivors that screw up die.

    This... as a freddy main I know all to well how to deal with loops lol
  • ASurvkillivorerASurvkillivorer Member Posts: 169

    I am guilty of respecting pallets somewhat. Problem for me is they will just blast off to another pallet if they stun me. The other survivors do so much on the gens in the shortest little chases its not even funny. Then if they all can do that same function as good as eachother im like screwed entirely.

    My style is to always break the pallets. Even when its a bad play. I just can't resist it and I don't mind it because even when its the wrong move I know I removed its potential usefullness later.

    Perhaps walkling into pallets with the stun perk is needed at higher rank?

  • MullatoMullato Member Posts: 104
    Yes enduring helps tons. And combined with spirit fury, you will suprise them and catch them before they make it to the next pallet loop.

    Only works once, then they will tell their mates to be careful

  • TheWraith883TheWraith883 Member Posts: 66

    I think some of the maps need to be fixed because they can do an infinite loop and you can't catch them while they waste your time and the other survivors do gens. Some of the maps are really bad and every 4 meters there is a place to loop which should be changed.

  • PoweasPoweas Member Posts: 2,618

    Play Spirit or Hag. They are not loopable Nurse is garbage on Xbox.

    If you get them to waste 3 or more pallets per gen, it's sometimes worth the trade. If they 3 gen themselves, or you run an end game build, or just get a a good snowball going, not having enough pallets to get away from you can make a huge difference.

    I will always take shack pallet if I can get them to drop it because it can make such a huge difference, especially if your basement is there.The only time it's not worth doing is when the gates are powered.

    This. Drives me insane watching streamers play Killer and NOT swing through pallets when they could be getting hits. Take the damn swing.

    One of my favourite combos for looping is Spirit Fury with Enduring. If you're on an M1 killer.

    Best of all the first time spirit fury pops off no one knows you have it so you instantly catch them and get a hit.

    And the rest of the wood you eat has a lower stun time. It working on DS also is a nice side benefit.

    I think alot depends on what killer you are using. 

    Some get looped to death.

    Very true, The killers I like to play are the ones who get looped for days, which is unfortunate.
