It is so boring playing matches against Hillbilly on PS4, because he goes straight to the hook

Please fix the chainsaw charge time on Hillbilly, it is so boring playing matches where he just goes straight to the hook and we have no chance of getting away because of the chainsaw charge time and time it takes to get to the hook. The matches with Hillbilly is basically Slugging and Hook tunneling, no time for normal gameplay making me derank most of the time.

    They dodging his chainsaw once you get the timing down it becomes relatively quite easy.

    Oh, thanks for the tips. I usually just do zig zag movement when he charges, not timing it at all and get downed right away tbh. I wish they nerfed the charge time.

    Nothings wrong with his charge time tbh. It's just something you have to get used too. He has counter play like every other killer you just need to get used to it. Once you remove the chainsaw from the equation he comes a 115 m1 killer.

    What do people mean by M1 and M2 killer? Im playing on PS4, is that a PC type of thing

    Basic hit and power button.

    Mouse 1 and mouse 2.

    I play on both.

    Borrowed time is also a thing, it still work on insta downs i believe

    I used Borrowed Time, we were a SWF against Hillbilly on Haddonfield, he would rev his chainsaw and hold it and wait for one of us to unhook in the middle of the street, I would take the aggro and use my lucky Dead Hard, we all escaped through the open doors, us being cocky with saves really did help, I tried to take the heat and managed to escape.

    If hes camping then just do gens. If not then run him around far enough so the hooked person can get away. Run borrowed time to help save the hooked person. Take advantage of loops that are hard for him to chainsaw you at. If he consistently rushes back to the hook then split up and make him guess who's who. He can't chase both of you.

    No nerfs for Billy, please. He's a balanced killer and one of my favorites to play. 🤗

    He doesn’t need any changes but I do agree he is quite boring to go against. He is definitely my least favorite killer to go against. Once I hear the chainsaw at the beginning of the match I just roll my eyes. I snooze going against a Billy, it’s the same formula over and over and over again. There is no intense chasing.

    Although I understand why people play as him. He is one of the more powerful killers, just very boring to go against.

    Hillbilly has map pressure but he is not actually that good up close. You can loop a hillbilly around a small rock if he insists on using the chainsaw.

    Hillbillys can be used in a right way and a wrong way.

    He is not exactly strong in chases, but one mistake of a survivor and the game can change very drastically.
