Will You Still Play Around BBQ & Chili?

With the BP bonus being removed from the perk will you still attempt to counter by hiding in lockers etc?

For the few killers that would still make good use of the aura reading will you just assume the perk will barely be used and have your aura revealed? Thoughts?

    No. I won't. If they have it so what? Many will no longer use it (myself included).

  • SepexSepex Member Posts: 1,409

    Yeah it just feels like second nature to counter it for years now. I probably still will cause it's a force of habit.

    I may still use it, but I think Floods of Rage or Darkness Revealed may be more helpful for me personally after the update.

    I never bothered, because a killer using BBQ who saw no auras would usually just either camp or proxy camp the hook due to no direction to go in. If i'm on the opposite side of the map and im the only one they see, I want them to come after me.

    Yes because I'm not interested in having a blight or nurse on me in 10 seconds

    I'll probably have Distortion equipped most of the time anyways. Infinite aura blocking with limited scratch mark blocking is just too good to pass up.

    BBQ and Chili will probably see a huge decrease in use with the BP bonus gone. Artist, Spirit, Blight, Nurse and possibly Huntress will still see benefit. Sadako and Freddy might get some use. Darkness Revealed synergizes far better than BBQ with Dredge.

    BBQ and Chili, though, is just outclassed by the other information perks for the other Killers. Floods of Rage, Darkness Revealed, A Nurse's Calling, etc will show you where survivors near you are which is more important for low mobility killers. 40 meters is a long distance for low mobility Killers.

    For gen defence, Tinkerer and Discordance are better than BBQ and Chili for telling you where to go.

    I can see BBQ being used as a secondary info perk but then it still needs to compete with chase perks and gen defence perks for that slot so, unless the Killer is one of the Killers it's still really good for, I'll probably stop playing around it. I don't think it'll be seen that much.

    I haven’t worried about the aura reading of BBQ in a long time, so no, the nerf won’t change how I play.

  • PhasmamainPhasmamain Member Posts: 10,215

    Won’t have to when I’m running the new distortion. Can’t wait to counter new lethal pursuer as well

  • pseudechispseudechis Member Posts: 2,824

    Maybe not, the aura reading is good but the BP bonus was the main drive to use it.

    Typically unless you are playing against survivors that are switching up how they play, kinda rare, typically you either don't see anyone on BBQ or they are on the gens you already kinda expected them to be on.

    I think it's BS that they removed the BP component, but I'll still use it on my Dredge. The setup I use will let me find survivors easily, just as it always has. Plus with Lethal Pursuer being buffed, aura reading is stronger in general.

    If it's down to 3 survivors and it's a Nurse then yes. Otherwise not really no.

  • LaluziLaluzi Member Posts: 4,938

    Depends on if the perk usage plummets or not. I expect some inertia where it might take some people a while to take it off, but on the other hand, I only really dodged BBQ when there was an especial reason to want to go incognito anyway.

  • MrPeanutbutterMrPeanutbutter Member Posts: 985

    BBQ is now useless and I won’t use it anymore. Thanks, devs

  • GoshJoshGoshJosh Member Posts: 4,839

    Useless? It has the same exact effect as before, minus bonus blood points.

  • Barbarossa2020Barbarossa2020 Member Posts: 1,095

    Yup always used it for information. Huntress main so info for sniping is great, maybe if i ever unlock that Dredge locker talent i'll replace it but im not spending 9k shards for 1 perk.

  • TheArbiterTheArbiter Member Posts: 1,535

    On killers with map traversal like Blight 100% yes

  • weirdkid5weirdkid5 Member Posts: 2,139

    I never cared about BP, so it won't change how I use it. Then again, that was when I used to play Billy.

    Now I really only play Dredge and Legion, neither of which I use BBQ on in the first place.

  • thrawn3054thrawn3054 Member Posts: 5,283

    No, it's completely dead.

  • KaitsjaKaitsja Member Posts: 1,149

    Never played around BBQ. As soon as someone goes down, I immediately start making my way in their general direction to get the save.

  • Buily09Buily09 Member Posts: 3,216

    Yes, on many killers I need that aura to tell me where to go next. For speed mobility killers or teleport killers Its kinda a must have. Without it you just quessing where to go next and maybe wasting your time / abilities.

  • ACleverName4MeACleverName4Me Member Posts: 342

    If I was a newer killer yes but since I have already built in my game sense to suspect where survivors will be.

    BBQ was a great perk not only because it gave you bonus bp for not camping but it rewarded you for going after different survivors who may not have even shown up on the aura.

    BBQ was a perk to fix camping and honestly I think by removing the bp and not giving something else in return to promote leaving the hook has made this just a weak aura reading perk.

    If the devs wanted to they could make it add more time with each unique survivor you hook to get a good chunk of aura reading which could even counter distortion. Or another idea for a secondary action is if you leave the hook and get 32 meters away you are given a 10 second instant down 1 for each new survivor you hook.
