The Wraith is op

I don't know about anybody else but in every game I've not survived once with Wraith being the killer. I honestly find the character kind of broken since you can barely run away from the guy when he uncloaks. It feels like it's impossible to even win against em. Like, I honestly think it needs a nerf but this can just be me being bad at the game when he is the killer. Thoughts?

    Eh, he’s pretty weak once you learn to counter him, you can make ballsy plays when he’s belled and Borrowed tine can prevent facecamping plays.

    His uncloak lunge was already nerfed not that long ago as a result of the outcry of him being "the new spirit". His pickrate seems to have significantly dropped since. Dunno what to tell you.

    Wraith was a complete joke before his buff. Now some people are arguing that Spirit after her nerf is basically a blind Wraith, but I still find that the time it takes for Wraith to uncloak makes him an annoying character to play with (despite how spiffy he looks in his Dracula outfit - only reason I gave him a chance). May play him more at some point and see if it's something I can overcome.

    Pallets and windows pallets and windows

    His power is very loopable ever since they nerfed his lunge

    All killers are op if tunnel/camping. Wraith just happened to tunnel most of the time, because he's lower tier killer. That explain why I also hate Wraith, but understandable.


    Wraith is good killer if you play pallet breaking and faster cloak add ons (ofc in high mmr you have to play lot off gen slow down or full tunnel) but def not op,not even close. i play him a lot in high mmra :)

    I have a feeling you play solo. Against solo Q Wraith is quite strong, he needs some proper coordination to be managed by a team. That doesn't make him op or too strong though.

  • AnniehereAnniehere Member Posts: 1,185

    It feels that way but it's not true.

    When you play against him you have to check your surroundings to plan your escape in case he gets to where you are.

    A lot of them will try to Body block you from running while uncloaking, You have to think fast to where you want to run after he hits you.

    He can't hit you when he is invisible, so always stay close to a loop and don't panic when he is close to you.

    If you are in the open and he uncloaks you're dead right there.

    Tip: Pay attention whenever he uncloaks, Because if you vault at the same time he uncloaks he can mind game you and use his speed to surprise you on the other side. Vault or drop the pallet when you are sure that you can get away in time while he is uncloaking.

    Nice bait, Wraith is one of the weakest killers in the game. He was nerfed to the ground recently, and all his power can be disabled by a single flashlight. If anything, Wraith is in dire need of buffs.

    The devs actually once put in the patchnotes wraith is overperforming and then they nerfed him so LOL

  • AurelleAurelle Member Posts: 2,546

    Wraith isn't OP, he's one of the weaker killers in the game.

  • StarLostStarLost Member Posts: 6,234

    Wraith? No.

    I'd go out on a limb and say he's one of the weakest killers.

    Think of it this way.

    • He's very strong against new players.
    • BHVR's gross kill rate charts they like to publish are overwhelmingly offset by newer players.
    • Wraith's kill rates are still low, meaning that against more experienced players he's absolute garbage.

    He's pretty bad

  • KerJuiceKerJuice Member Posts: 1,463

    What do ppl get out of this? Just ######### taking up space on the front page. Smfh. Damn I’m in a fouled mood today lol

  • SimfelizSimfeliz Member Posts: 1,982

    Maybe they don't get enough attention in their personal life? Who knows. I just wish if they are going to do it make it funny or interesting.

  • nebneb Member Posts: 365

    My thoughts is that clown is absolutely busted, as I've NEVER survived a game against him. I suggest that we remove all of his addons and delete his power, and give him nurse movement speed.

  • Slaughterhouse3Slaughterhouse3 Member Posts: 795

    You are bad lol good survivors stomp him. But is that a problem? No. I'm not the king of this game either and I just play to have fun :)

  • ThiccBudhhaThiccBudhha Member Posts: 6,428

    After the nerf, he joined 90% of killers in "not viable" tier.

    See, these are the kind of posts where people call bait yet I cannot see why they think that. Can’t it just be a new player frustrated with something more experienced players have beaten time and time again?

  • fulltononfulltonon Member Posts: 4,064

    Troll and bait, nice.

    He’s pretty middle of the road but I agree he’s very strong vs new/bad survivors.

    Once you’re good at looping and positioning he’s pretty trivial to deal with in most situations.

  • AkumakajiAkumakaji Member Posts: 2,199

    He seems that way. As does Billy at first. As does Nurse. As does the Huntress. As does basically every killer.

    Until you learn how to loop and it suddenly clicks and you learn how to run the killer for hours on end. Then you laugh at the Billy. Laugh at the Huntress. And especially, loudly laugh at that Wraith with his rather weak kit and feeble attempts to scare you.

    But you still won't laugh at Nurse. You never will, for she will always take away your last breath, leaving you with no air to laugh.

    git gud

    Wraith op ? HEH ?

    It’s not the April fool day yet

    ok ok, seriously, if the camp is a problem, genrush and bring ds ou borrow.

    and for kick in this power, use spine chill.

  • sudintlinksudintlink Member Posts: 185

    Thank god someone else notices too. I think if the killer is wraifth flashlights should spawn automatically around the map and THOSE DAMN SILENT BELL ADDONS AGHH. He should not be able to swing after uncloaking for about 3-5ish seconds like nemesiss or pyramid head.

  • lavarslavars Member Posts: 312

    I wouldn't say "op". I think Wraith is actually pretty "balanced"

    He has funny add-ons and can be played many ways.

    Overall pretty nice as he's usable as a nice "noob-trap" i loved to play on low-mmr. To trap people in a corner while uncloaking was always fun. I'm still low-mmr and should play him more often, if i would play the game at all atm :think:
