@Survivors, do you main only one character or do you switch it up?

    For the most part, I just focus on whoever has my favourite outfit ATM, but there are a few survivors where I have specific builds saved on them and it's faster/easier/less annoying to just switch to that character when I want Gen Repair build or Super Healer build as opposed to changing all of my perks.

    Killer main but generally only Bill, unless i have a challenge or a daily i feel like doing.

    Grumpy old man with a fag in his gob describes me nicely .

    I find the male survivors' running animation weird, so I only play the garls: Kate, Cheryl, Yui and Yun-Jin.

    No i don't see the point of unlocking all other perks on survivor characters where the only difference is looks, So i used Tapp until Jonah came out and now i main him.

    I bought outfits on every survivor and got them all lvl 50 with meta perks. I try to do a rotation, since I bought all their Christmas outfits I'm playing those guys currently mostly feng min pajama set because she is a cutie

    no i try to make builds around a survivor's teachable.

    That's actually a neat way of playing, though time consuming. I don't have the patience for it though.


    I play Dwight, David, or Felix.

    I'm gay and horny.

    I mainly play Leon/Chris, but I do like to switch to Zarina, Jill, Yun Jin, Nea or Meg. All of them except Jill have all Perks so I can do meme stuff with them as well. Jill because I like Jill.

    I had the goal of rotating through all the male characters but it’s always David or Tapp. Tapp is usually my go to though and I like the fact you don’t see him as often. He’s also the only survivor I have prestige on. I like the bloody vest look.

    I switch up my survivors constantly. I usually switch between Nea, Feng, Zarina, Heather (Cheryl), Nancy, Mikaela, Leon, and Jake.

  • ShroompyShroompy Member Posts: 2,969

    Meg, Claud, David, Kate, Yui, Zarina and Jill are my go to's

    Al though I play Meg the most, shes the very first character I got to P3 and the very first character I got all perks on, was a big achievement for me at the time

    i mained cheryl on ps4 but now i just play jeff

  • ShinobuSKShinobuSK Member Posts: 3,639

    I play several characters on both sides, some more, some less and some never played even though I owned them

  • tenoresaxtenoresax Member Posts: 636


    Because cute.

    And because she's the only survivor I actually have all the perks on, everyone else is inferior so I just use them for teachables.

  • PulsarPulsar Member Posts: 12,519

    Does it count if I play Steve AND Jonathan?

  • LegacySmikeyLegacySmikey Applicant, Member Posts: 208

    I main Meg & always will but I do occasionally play the odd random game or two with Kate.

    If I'm recording i'll play every survivor in rotation using only their perks.

    Currently Elodie is winning that survival battle & Kate is last (I have no idea why on either count!)

  • ReviloDBDReviloDBD Member Posts: 466

    Only one, although the main has switched a couple of times so technically I have a few now.. but always only play one lol

  • RenfearRenfear Member Posts: 91

    Prestige 3 Meg, all perks

  • C3ToothC3Tooth Member Posts: 4,339

    I grinded so hard to make 1 aspect perk build for each survivors, so nowaday I play multiple survivors, not just Yui

    • Meg: Sprint burst, Fixate, Urban, Tenacity
    • Clau: Ironwill, Calm spirit, Spine chill, Urban
    • Kate: Empathy, Botany, Desperate measure, Pharmacy
    • Jane: Quick Quiet, Head on, Inner strength, Deception
    • Steve: Diversion, Sabo, Red herring, Anymean
    • Jake: Mettle of man, Sabo, Empathy, Breakout
    • With Yui is my optimize build: Small game, Kindred, WoW, Lithe


    I have so much more fun playing survivors since then.

  • CluelessWandererCluelessWanderer Member Posts: 609

    My main is Bill. He's my fav.

    But if I want to switch it up, I also play Cheryl and Chris Redfield

  • GwintyGwinty Member Posts: 806

    Pls continue doing this. I as a Killer do not want to tunnel but if every survivor is the same character I will just hunt whoever gets in my way and it is quit possible that I single one player out by accident. I like to juggle hooks but 4 times the same character as opponent makes me just go feral "kill on sight".

    Now for the question: I play Adam for builds around buffing my teammates, Meg for chest-looting, David for "I rescue you" and Nancy for stealth/totem focus. I can not bring myself to play a character with a build that I do not deem fitting for them. What is fitting largely depends on my gut feeling and thus I need to play different character. Yet for me Adam is the coolest from the bunch and I like him the most.

    I equipped every survivor i have fully perked out with a different build and swap based on the mood

    My favorite builds are the ones I have on Zarina, Meg and Dwight (Kindred/Open Handed/Windows of Opportunity/Visionary, Saboteur/Resilience/Breakout/DH, and Bite the bullet/Botany/Lucky Break/Desperate Measures paired with a medkit )
