Why solo survivors unable to see the killers perk?

It is very inconvenient.

    Why killers cant see survivors perks and if group is SWF? its very inconvenient.

    I'm talking about solo survivors now.

    I'm talking about solo killers now.

    Bevcause the solo survivor can still just message the other survivors after pressing a few buttons on their keyboards or controllers.

    That is not very realistic.

    Why only solo survivors suffer disadvantage?

  • FrozenscumFrozenscum Member Posts: 393

    What kind of disadvantage are you talkng about? Survivors are not able to see KIller's perks and vica versa, why they should even?

    Because knowing the opponents perks before the game has even started gives a tone of information that would ruin the game.

    A lot of perks you have to play to see if the others are using it, Knowing beforehand would just have everyone playing around each others perks.

    It's the reason why Killer's perks were hidden in end screen eventually. It was abused by SWF to tell everyone the perks of the killer and counteract them.

    Solo survivor wants to play the next game as soon as it dies.

    However, solo surviver need to wait until the end to see the killers perk.

    just have to make the SWF not see the killers perk.

    At the moment, the game has no way to tell who is in a SWF once a lobby has been joined. All survivors, as far as the game is aware, are solo survivors. This will possibly change once dedicated servers hit, but is not possible at the moment.

    As the solo survivor, I think this is a fair change.

  • FrozenscumFrozenscum Member Posts: 393

    As a killer I dont even know why you need to know killer's perks before match ends, no matter solo or swf, since you can easily recognize them during match. There are not so many perks that are used by killers in most cases. JUst move to next match when you dead, dont waste your time waiting for end.

    instead of nerfing SWF or buffing solo surviving. devs are nerfing the survivors. and not reducing the gap between swf and solos.

    Because even solo survivors can use the platform communication tools and give away the killers loadout

    The technical reason is that until we get dedicated servers it isn't possible to know who is in SWF and who is a solo survivor.
