Is this possible? Head on strategy.

With the stun hitbox being so big. Is it possible to hide in the basement locker closest to the hook, then use head on to save the carried survivor.

Not seen or heard of anyone doing this but this makes sense that it's possible.

    If there is something like this, it should be looked at honestly. Going into basement takes too long anyway, not to mention basement is supposed to be a powerful tool for the killer.

    Yea I'm sure it is but I'm not worried about it. Think about how many times could have been pallet stunned and how many times the killer is actually pallet stunned. It almost never happens unless you are playing a half decent SWF.

    Now take that, add on a perk and the stun has to happen in a specific spot. You can't even be sure the killer will bring the survivor to the basement. Would be a god-tier play by a survivor if they did this.

    i've tested this with friends and it works but unless they walk righ by the locker it should't happen to often

    Well given the fact the killer can totally block the basement stairs if they choose I'd say it would be fair if it did, not only that but if they're running enduring and it's a one shot killer you potentially have two basement hooks, high risk should have high reward.

    Yeah I'm not too worried about this either... if players can pull this off it only adds more fresh feeling to the game rather then the boring pallet and flashlight saves

    I keep thinking about how this could affect gameplay. The ultimate situation for this (from survivors side) would be this.

    Head on makes it possible for the killer to drop a survivor who he's taking to the basement, so he knows he must be careful. While he's carrying someone inside the killer shack, he notices scratchmarks going down the stairs. Annoyed, he drops the survivor he's carrying to go scare the head on [BAD WORD] away so he can get to a hook in peace. As expected, when the he stands in front of the locker, a survivor jumps out and stuns him. But hey, at least now he can hook in peace. But the locker survivor runs up the stairs, uses insta-heal on the downed survivor, and runs away. 😂 this is the cruelest thing I can imagine. Very unlikely though.
