How Do Yall Feel About Hillbilly?

I think we all are somewhat familiar with the man himself, Max Thompson Jr.

The reason why Ive asked about Billy is it seems that during the anniversary events, a lot of survivors Ive faced have DCed or let themselves go on first hook over curving. Ive even received a lot of harassment over curving (mind that I havent used any Engravings during the event, Im saving those for later, my addons used for this whole event has been Punctured Muffler and Junkyard Air Filter). A lot of this just led me to question: Do people hate Hillbilly?

Well, to be more exact, is Hillbilly fun to play? Is Hillbilly enjoyable to face? And are there certain builds that people refuse to go against? Id just like to get some of the community thoughts about him.

    Great basekit. Terrible addons. Engravings is not the best addons. Fight me.

    Personally, Apex Muffler with Leafy Mash is an insanely good combo, maybe throw in Tinkerer, Dark Devotion, and H: Plaything and you got a really solid build. It's been pretty fun and successful since people dont expect it at all.

    Either iridescent with turn speed is an absolute blast to play. Apex with tinkerer alone can allow you to walk right up to a gen with a 99'd chainsaw. The turn speed just helps you get there.

    I LOVE facing curve Billys, but it may be because I actually know how to run them.

    A lot of people tend to dc vs killers they refuse to learn how to play against, but i wouldn't care less.

    I can get my cheeks absolutely clapped and i'll take it as learning experience, leaving the game early won't teach me anything.

    So no, i don't hate Billy in any shape and form. Billy players are a super rare sight nowadays anyway, i'll cherish every single one of them i'll meet, I just wish they didn't gave up so easily on chases :(

    I haven’t seen a Billy in a long time. To the point that I’d probably DC just because I thought I’d mistakenly spawned into a forbidden past realm and needed to return to the present…

    He feels clunky and so slow to play,he's just not a fun smooth killer to play anymore our Billyboi got butchered sadly...

    he can be good if you take the time to master him and learn how to curve even tho curving won't work against decent survivors and people should know to never hug loops against a Billy.

    Most of his add-ons are just terrible,the engravings are cool for the curves montages but the slower chainsaw charge can punish Beginner-Intermediate Billys should never use the engravings.

    I use the steering add-ons since I am not that good at Billy and Dad's Boots helps me alot.

    Overall a decent killer with lethality and mobility but takes alot of practice and is one of the hardest killers in the game.

  • Iron_CutlassIron_Cutlass Member Posts: 353

    I would argue that learning with the Death Engravings, the charge time is manageable and the speed boost lets people get a better grasp over managing the speed.

    Remove overheat mechanic, roar and remove the extra second bump penalty

  • SilasySilasy Member Posts: 140

    Good mobility, weak anti-loop and boring addons overall. Can be good but one of the hardest killers in the game and doesnt reward you as much as Blight, Nurse or Sprit.

    boring to play, super fun to play against anyone who complains about going against a billy is a #########. I'll complain tho if they're a m1illy

  • ShinobuSKShinobuSK Member Posts: 4,387

    Unlike majority of community, I actually hate facing billy. And demo as well

  • GoodBoyKaruGoodBoyKaru Member Posts: 19,945

    Idk I'm sure he's a blast to play as, I just never can. And because he's so rare to face it's normally quite fun, like I'm sure Blight would be if my games weren't so oversaturated with the bastard. I wish they'd fix his animations though

  • Seth__Seth__ Member Posts: 1,470

    A strong killer in good hands, but I am Leatherface anyway :eyes:

    I'm stubborn to drop a chase if i want to chainsaw...

    Fite me rn, 1v1 curveboi billy

  • WampiritaWampirita Member Posts: 556

    As much as I'd love to, I have to refuse. I can't take chases seriously in customs, I need the actual game going around me to make decisions where to go and where not.

    But if we ever meet in regular game, I'll take you for a ride with pleasure

  • MarigoriaMarigoria Member Posts: 5,687

    Shouldn't have been changed in the first place.

    Billy used to be one of the best 3 killers at the time, alongside nurse and spirit. No one ever complained about Billy, in fact a lot of people found in fun to play as AND go against.

    Only change he needed was a rework to his addons.

    Absolutely love Billy, he's my main. I played him and only him for about the first two months when I first started playing this game. It always brings a smile to my face when I face his as survivor too. Even if he faces camps me (not that I experience that much from Billy) I'm happy.

    Did I tell you how much I love Billy?

  • ZachcjjjZachcjjj Member Posts: 452

    am a billy main and i get basically only positive feedback for curving especially, if anyone ever cries its usually about how they felt i played mean more then the actual curves

    Hillbilly is still fun to play, but requires a lot of effort to master correctly, but overheat essentially punishes you for trying use your power as much as possible a pretty dumb mechanic considering his power isn’t oppressive enough to warrant overheat. And his add-ones are pretty weak. Hopefully one day the overheat heat is reverted and add-ons made viable.

    Billy isn't Demogorgon or Artist, so I can't love him

  • Iron_CutlassIron_Cutlass Member Posts: 353

    Demogorgon is also pretty fun, just wish all of his addons werent portal related, just wish they have more interactions with Shred.

  • AcelynnBenAcelynnBen Member Posts: 456

    can play literally every killer beside him and blight

  • ChadkuChadku Member Posts: 411

    We got 3 stacks of STBFL for Shred, Brutal Strength Shred, Unrelenting Shred and zero addons that apply Mangled, Hemmorage when shredding.
