Buckle Up is so bad I've never see a survivor run it, but is it the worst?

    I’ve literally never seen a survivor use it before, definitely the worst perk in the game.

  • AshyBashyAshyBashy Member Posts: 28

    As one of the only Ash mains, yes. I never use it

    Buckle Up is bad, but it's not Dark Theory bad.

    Sole Survivor is the worst survivor perk in the game.

    Edit: Actually, the new Ada perk that just hides your scratch marks when you are the last survivor is probably even worse.

    It feels like people forget about this not happening…

    (Buckle is somewhat good for solo queue, but talking SWF, MAYBE it’s the worst)

    No Mither is the worst perk by far, no I don't care you brought resilience to go with it nothing excuses making yourself useless in chase and giving up all the time another health state would have given you. And if you come across Oni your existence threw the game from the start.

    There are a lot of bad perks but No Mither is the only perk where literally leaving the perk slot empty is preferable.

    Buckle Up looks pretty bad and has very low usage in the stats, but I think the worst survivor perk is maybe No Mither simply because running it almost always significantly hurts you and your team rather than helps it. Buckle Up for instance doesn’t do much, but it’s still technically better than having an empty perk slot. No Mither though is normally worse than no perk at all!

    Not the worse for solo but not worth taking up a perk slot either.

  • AurelleAurelle Member Posts: 2,978

    I've never once seen anyone use it, other than for adept Ash.

  • SgtMittensSgtMittens Member Posts: 249

    I voted yes because of its lack of use, but after seeing some commenting about its potential as a solo perk, I initially scoffed. With the way the game is played now there are more killers leaving survivors on the ground for one reason or another so it could be more useful now.

  • SgtMittensSgtMittens Member Posts: 249

    Devil's advocate, you could probably use that Ada perk as part of a joke build with left behind, adrenaline, and wake up

  • sizzlingmario4sizzlingmario4 Member Posts: 3,722

    No because No Mither exists. It‘s pretty bad though.

    It‘s funny too because it got a buff a few months ago and it’s STILL almost completely useless.

    Dark Theory isn’t great but it’s better than people give it credit for. I’d bring it over buckle up any day of my life.

    A lot of the perks I'm seeing people counter Buck up with are odd. Perks like sole survivor and Dark Theory can be helpful still. Sole Survivor can improve your chances of escape as the final survivor due to aura blocking and opening gates faster in worst case scenarios. Dark theory can give you a slight boost while looping within the boon, so that you may be able to greed a pallet a bit more forgivingly or be forgiven for not looping tight enough, or getting caught on something for a brief moment.

    But Buckle Up? Either you're picking up a survivor and the killer is far away enough that their location doesn't matter, or they are close enough that you can clearly see the killer without aura reading. The only arguable exceptions might be indoor maps due to the LoS differences between indoor and outdoor maps (though terror radius exists as a way to know when the killer is in your general vicinity). Maybe if you need to know if a survivor is recovering, but you can simply stand on them to see their bar. Bit at that point you might as well heal them since it's quicker than recovering. So at that point they are either slugged and you should be healing them since the killer left them (botany would be more helpful), or they are slugged and being camped on the ground, where picking them up is useless unless you or the other person have better perks for picking up players lime WGLF or soul guard or DH.

    I was gonna say if Buckle up could reveal auras through knock out but it does not. And I suppose that even if it did, empathy or bond would probably be better options anyways. So nothing it offers is optimal or worthwhile by its of or when paired with other perks.

    I wouldn't quite say it's the worst by itself, but it's definitely one of the worst perks. Up the Ante is still worse thought (by itself), but more useful if you have a build focused on it (like a self-unhook build).

  • MrsGhostfaceMrsGhostface Member Posts: 946

    Technician is the worst. If they took away the penalty for missing a skill check, then maybe i'd agree with you.

  • PaintedDeathPaintedDeath Member Posts: 462

    You know what man, No Mither with Oni is a really interesting combo. I once was playing as Oni and I had a No Mither Survivor in the match. Dude ended up going to a dead area of the map and just hanging out. He ended up hoarding all the blood orbs, and forced me to go ALL the way across the map just to get any blood orbs. Of course once I got there it was an insta fill, but outside of that it was actually kind of frustrating.

  • EnderloganYTEnderloganYT Member Posts: 621

    Yall forgetting no mither still exists

  • ImmersedNurseImmersedNurse Member Posts: 3,204

    No Mither...

  • Spirit_IsTheBestSpirit_IsTheBest Member Posts: 312

    It's a terrible perk but it's not the worst, I'd say Technician, or This Is Not Happening are the worst perks in the game.

  • roundpittroundpitt Member Posts: 318

    I think people forget that No Mither is a perk.

  • AtoTimberAtoTimber Member Posts: 29

    Dark Theory is the worst, but he's trying really hard.
