KILLERS TIER LIST PATCH 2.5.0.

Ok so I'm going to be ranking the killers from Top tier where they need no buffs but maybe some QoL changes, Mid tier where they need some moderate buffs, Bottom tier where they need some considerable buffs and Freddy tier where they are just in need of reworks.

I will be giving their skill cap/reward. Please keep in mind this is all opinion based.

Top tier:

  1. Nurse - Strongest killer, has the second best (joint) chasing ability, 2nd best at recovering from mistakes, has some insane map pressure and precise accuracy to get to a specific location. She is a considerable skill cap/extremely high reward killer.
  2. Billy - He is an unbelievable killer and insane at pressuring gens and best at recovering from his mistakes. He's also so fun. He is a low skill/high reward killer.
  3. Hag - She is amazing. She has the best map presence (notice how all the top tiers are best at something? HMMMMM?!) And she's got insane potential when she controls 1/2 of the map. She is a considerable skill/high reward killer. I will also mention she has the same chasing as Nurse.
  4. Spirit - She is so fun honestly. She has amazing map pressure, she can mindgame better then any other killer and has the best chasing ability. Honestly she's my favourite killer to play. She's a high skill/extremely high reward killer. Not as strong as Hag or Billy due to her cooldown being a little too long.
  5. Myers- He's only got her by an inch. But he's here. Best map pressure out of every killer in the game. With his heartbeat changing so often, he's extremely unpredictable. And he's got a dimmer red glow, at one point, I've heard that killers red glow brightness is linked to their heartbeat, so if the kiiler has a low terror radius, they'll have a dimmer red glow, and it gives him more of an opening to mindgame. That's my main reson for his mid tier status. He's strong and can (sort of) counter loops. He's one of the most fun killers and insane. He's definitely a Moderate skill/high reward killer.

Mid tier:

  1. Clown - One of the best chasing and extremely strong. I don't like him much but I won't deny he's strong. Moderate skill/Decent reward killer.
  2. Wraith (joint with Huntress) - He has everything Nurse has but he's actually got them at a much lower rate. That is some decent chasing ability, good at recovering from mistakes, decent map pressure, good at getting to a specific location and hes ok at pressuring gens. Low skill cap/Moderate reward.
  3. Huntress - (Joint with Wraith) @ScottJund I'll admit I was wrong when I said she was bad. She's amazing. Most players can't beat her :p. She's almost top tier with a few buffs to her base and one of the few killers who don't need addons. Considerable skill/high reward.
  4. Pig - Good killer now, she's decent, doesn't need much addons and I don't like her much honestly. Low skill/Decent reward killer.

Bottom tier:

  1. Trapper - Pretty much trash at everything. - Moderate skill cap/Non existent reward.
  2. Doctor - Worse then Trapper. High skill cap/No reward.
  3. Leatherface - Trash. Low skill cap/Low reward.

Freddy tier:

  1. Legion - He's not bad, he's actually mid tier but he deserves a rework. He has no counterplay, takes almost no skill and annoying as hell. Low skill cap/Low reward.
  2. Freddy - Nothing. Moderate skill cap/No reward.

    I find Doctor much harder to fight than Nurse. But that's probably because I play Stealth first and foremost.

    I find Nurse quite hard to face honestly, Doc is so easy. Just keep running. You can get double the amount of loops you would if they try shocking.

    I think Doctor is mid tier because of the stun from his shock. Yeah, it won’t work all the time, but when it does (and it can at quite a bit of pallets and windows), it’s pretty good. It works much better after the pallet has been dropped because the Survivor will have a harder time getting away (they can’t vault over anything and you’re going to be running towards them, so the Survivor has to either try to stay away from you while the stun is active or just take the hit). All he needs is just some buffs to his base shock and a small illusion buff and he’ll make it into the bottom of top tier.

    Myers is way too high. Without add-ons, the best things he has are an instadown and small terror radius. The instadown can be countered by looping and hiding from him and his terror radius can be countered by looking around. It’s also really easy to deny him of evil by just standing behind an object. I would put him in the middle of mid tier.

    I would probably put Spirit above Hag and maybe even above Hillbilly honestly. And Doc isn't that bad in my opinion, same for Leatherface.
    And what do you mean with Clown being a low skill killer? I mean he definitely doesn't take as much skill as others but perfecting his bottle throws isn't really easy as well.

    Did I write low? I meant moderate. Wait I'll sort that out.

    Are you referring to me?

    I've played every killer on this list. I base it off of my own experiences.

    Nope he'd be top of mid tier but I wanted to give him a better rating. Myers is an extremely strong killer if played correctly. I considered putting him in mid tier but he certainly has top tier.

    Doc is unreliable and against a simple loop, he's quite powerless. He can just delay the game. He's really weak compared to Myers.

    Myers really only has to deal with 1 or 2 loops before he instadowns but Doc gets looped so hard and most the time, nobody even drops a pallet against him.

    Huntress is top tier imo. You can stop some loops with hatchets and even stop people working on gens if there is line of sight to throw hatchets.

    But at the same time... You can get looped way too much for her to be top tier. I think she's amazing but a smart survivor does well against a Huntress. I'm a potato but back when I was good at survivor, I could get a ton of loops in against her. It's all about baiting her windup.

    I mean I can't question your opinion but doc is way better against loops than Myers.

    Myers is a terrible killer if the survivors are good since he literally has 0 tools against loops. Sure he has 1 down and he can slug but against experienced survivors, he will be bullied hard.

    I would still place him above doc but he is no way a top tier killer. Your huntress placement is, imo, very wrong too. She should have been a top tier killer.

    I think Legion is placed too low. Hes not great but hes not Freddy teir either. Freddy is also placed too low, jes got some good mindgames with his phasing

    No not really. In my opinion, she's not top tier. Neither is Myers but he's so successful with his snowball power that I gave him top tier. I think he's much stronger than Huntress though. Billy is loopable and he maintains 2nd best killer because of his ability to recover from mistakes. I consider Mike to be similar with his snowball power because he is able to turn a game around quickly.

    About his mindgames though... I've heard/witnessed that his red stain is dimmer then most killers. Because the killers stain is linked to their heartbeat which is why Billy has a much brighter one then Hag. Making him an extremely effective mindgamer.

    They both need reworks that's why they're Freddy tier.

    Myers at top tier XD

    Why is Legion not in all five of those top tier spots

    He can breathe heavier than Myers and that automatically makes him OP

    Legion should have his own tier because he’s even worse.

    You got the top tier and very bottom tier killers right.

    Honestly, I like your tier list! Finally someone who sees doc as trash killer like I do. I personally would put Leatherface over doc just because he can one hit down and break pallets very fast, but that's just personal preference I guess.

    Also, you nailed it why the top tier killers are top tier: map pressure aka high mobility/overall presence. Exactly why killers with just 110% can get F'd really hard.

    I think we should play and chat together some time, usually I enjoy playing with people who have quite similar tier lists like mine 
  • DelsKibaraDelsKibara Member Posts: 46

    I personally would put Freddy in Low Tier rather than the bottom.
    Even though I agree he is arguably the worst killer in the game, with the right addons he really can be a Nightmare for some Survivors. But again, with the right addons.
    Addon/Perkless Freddy is pretty much terrible, but not as terrible as Legion (imo)

    Not that I am denying that most people who play Freddy just play Tunnel-o-vision instead of doing anything smart.
    Pretty good tier list, I personally agree with most of it.

    I agree that she still gets looped a lot but if it's a good map like MacMillan Estate, at some loops you can just hold your hatchet and if the survivors are crouching they cannot go around the loop and with correct timing you can hit them.

  • Maelstrom10Maelstrom10 Member Posts: 373

    Tbh i'd say huntress is top tier with addons and perks, sometimes even above a competent nurse on an open map.
    Clown can be situationally top tier, best at anti looping thats for sure
    doctor is the best anti stealth in the game, expecially with iron maiden in the game now. only way to combat him is calm spirit. he's not as good at loops, but the shock can be super bloody effective.

    Yeah it's a genuine opinion. He's so strong and if you can't see that then you've obviously not played/faced him enough.

    @Gardenia said:

    I might rename 'Freddy tier' to 'Rework tier' to avoid confusing people.

    I meant for that tier to be for the killers who need reworks. Obviously Legion is mid tier but he gets the 'Freddy tier' treatment because he needs a rework rather than buffs.

    Hope ya understand.

    We should totally. If you play on Xbox or PC, I'm down. Although if Xbox, my gold has ran out and I need to get it at some point.

    Lol. But nah. Myers is top tier not for his unique breathing but for his mindgames, map pressure and his unpredictability. I'm going to add a bit about his red glow because everyone seems to disagree with me.

    You can loop even a Nurse if she's bad. When I play Doc I rarely allow more than a lap around a loop. Judging a killer based on bad players is anything but smart.

    I find Michael a little bit harder to fight simply because you don't know where he is coming from and he can always take you by surprise, not only that but i feel like once he's on you he never leaves you.

    No I'm rank 1. I judge them based on the ones I face/play. And I'll happily admit Doc is not effective at all against a loop. I don't base it on bad players.

    You're judging him off of bad survivors. Same thing.
