I just want to know what you guys think, some people are saying that Spirit is the second best killer. Some others says Billy...

I personally think that Spirit has more map control and her mind games are the best thing about her. What you guys think?

    It's preference

    Spirit is better in chases, but her mobility kinda sucks.

    I found her very scary with the purple/green add ons

    I personally think Spirit is only so strong because the lack of visuals and bugs. No vault animation, the passive phasing is gone, sound is bugged on phasing anyway. Standing animation is the same as phasing. Delay of sound between you hearing phasing and the spirit actually starting to phase and move. You almost feel cheated at times. However, billy by far has speed and instant-down on his side. So it is almost a tie, however, in general design and not lacking visuals/bugs billy is the more stable killer.

    I have to admit that when I play survivor and I’m going against Billy I’m happy and relaxed the entire match, it was few months since a Billy managed to use his chainsaw on me. He is just an M1 killer if you know how to go against him. I consider Billy Wraith level. When I go against Spirit I don’t know what to expect because she is unpredictable, I think she is a lot lot better than Billy when it comes to Chases, Billy is only good to move around the map with in my opinion.

    Spirit applies a kind of pressure on survivors that only Nurse can do so yes, she is the second best killer. You can play Spirit with ######### perks and still pip or even kill someone.

    Spirit has better chases but Billy has better mobility. With best add ons Spirit is 2nd best no contest. Without add ons it kind of depends on the map.

    Billy can end chases much faster and punish mistakes more efficiently than Spirit. However, she's more consistent when the map is especially bad and spawns too many awful loops/connecting tiles. If billy is a 8 - 9/10 killer, spirit is a solid 9, with 10 being reserved for the nurse alone.

    Imo opinion Spirit is the best killer, I think she is better than billy because faster chases>Mobility.

    I think she is better than nurse because nurse is easier to juke.

  • GrootDudeGrootDude Member Posts: 14,112

    Billy will not end chases faster since he can still be looped. A good Spirit cannot be looped.

    If a Spirit and a Billy both catch a player in an optimal situation, the Spirit will get a hit and follow up with her power. Billy will get an instadown. Hope that clarifies what I was saying prior : )

    Yes, she is.

    She cares a lot less about which map she's in. She has little to no counterplay during chases, especially with sounds getting better.

    The higher you go up the ranks, the better she is in relation to Billy.

    Not to say he's bad, he's still likely number 3 and all killers should be balanced around his power level imo. But she's better against good survivors.

    I find them equall. For me it goes S tier nurse. Then A tier killers are around the same level power wise - spirit, billy, hag. huntress. Then other tier killers.

  • gantesgantes Member Posts: 1,611

    Billy is fully at the mercy of the game's randomness. Spirit reduces the variance of chases so much she's better in 90% of scenarios against good players.

    Spirit. She can’t be looped as easily as Billy can.

    I see people constantly say Spirit is better but I main Spirit and I disagree. The fact Billy has mobility AND a built in one shot puts him ahead. Sure he can be looped but can break pallets faster than normal killers and if you mess up he can one shot you. No matter what, Spirit still has to hit you twice unless she brings a perk to one shot.

    Which Killer do you play better? That's the one who is stronger.

    with the right addons and perks she becomes the same lvl as nurse with omegablink known as god tier
