Ever been spared by a killer because of one thing you did?

I remember when me and a clown saw each other through a window and I nodded at him and he nodded back. He didn’t hook me for the rest of the game, he’d slug me if I was on a gen. Whenever I was the last survivor we farmed.

I remember I was playing with @Mushwin and kept saying “I’m gonna marry this thicc boi”.😂

    Oh yeah that clown was all over you like a rash....think it was the outfit or him gut slapping you @GrootDude lol

    i was playing swf yesterday and for some reason the huntress let me go.....though i don't have a clue why....maybe it's my extreme cuteness :)

    Generally speaking: Claudettes are tunneled out for various reasons. I don't feel like playing hide n seek at 2 gens remaining.

    Dwights: They get to live simply because they wear the pizza boy outfits.

    Object of Obsession: I tunnel and camp you out to the point I soak in the salt of the disconnect. I seen what terrible things you can do with this perk against several killers. I enjoy when they have it against my nurse <3.

    Afk: If you are not a claudette or have a key I will generally only slug. Your team is already at a disadvantage.

    Survivors that wave their arms from the moment they get hooked or as you pass by; I stop what I am doing and camp to make the point even if it costs me a match.


    Things that I found particularly neat. I have had several maps where the survivor would just dead end themselves. Realize they did it and simply turn and nod. I will generally get a kick out of it and walk away. I have also ran Territorial Imperative and had it go off 10 seconds into a match. As they were digging through the chest I came down and again they simply look and nod. Generally will just do an early game slug and leave them. There was also several times I had ballerina type killers when we did loops and they got aggravated. I was at shack with a billy and no where to lie we probably made it to the 6th time around it for the second chase he went after me. At this point he started 360 smacking the killer shack window and I joined in. After that the match went lightweight no rush not really a farm game but not like a grab and go type deal. I also purposely slug no mither's unless they are toxic in game. Then wait till end game when I get asked did I know what No-Mither was as a R1 killer LOL

    I just had a game where a nurse was using NOED and the gate was open... at the other end of the map.

    I was going for adept Ash, and Flip Flop was at 50%, because she wanted the 3 of us left.

    I got the bar full, and then used it to get off and make a mad dash which worked.

    That is how I got the Adept Ash achievement.

    I let someone live because they came up to me and told me to follow them which already a big risk they took.

    They led me to the basement to show a glitch where the RBT was floating in the air after someone died. I was able to get some funny photos from it so I decided to let them live.

    I was playing as Hag on Coldwind Farm and at the start of the game headed into the house. As I was about to go up the stairs a Meg was coming down. I think we both scared each other as we both stopped and stared. She motioned to me to follow her. I went up the stairs where she opened a closet on Ash! So I chased Ash FOREVER and after a while we both stopped. We both nodded and parted ways. We both got massive chase points and he stayed out of closets the rest of the game!

    A killer spared me because I was teabagging at pallets to spite him since I knew I was dead since I was the only one left. Strange guy must like being teabagged? I have other stories but that's the most interesting one.

  • KerbertKerbert Member Posts: 415

    My last game, actually. For some reason my HUD wasnt showing up, so when Freddy first approached me I just poked his face. He let me and Bill leave, and I gave him my toolbox which rarity I didn t know because no HUD.

    All I did was crouch near him and he later gave me hatch, he refused to hook me and would not let me unhook by physically blocking me.

  • My_FarewellMy_Farewell Member Posts: 495

    Yes, i pointed this Claudette when i was being chased because she barely did anything during the whole match and killer spared my life :)

  • JawsIsTheNextKillerJawsIsTheNextKiller Member Posts: 1,723

    A friendly Nea pointed out that Jake was hiding in a locker just as I knocked her down. In thanks I didn't hook her but the next time I encountered her she teabagged "hello". Since I was now her friend I didn't have the heart to kill her so I killed all her teammates instead and let her get on with her gens.

    In hindsight I realise that I was probably reported for working with the other side so if I get banned, I know what it was for.

    I got spared by a huntress because I jumped through a window straight into her waiting arms.

    I mean... I just wanted those huntress cuddles...

  • SkarkioSkarkio Member Posts: 570

    When I was a rank 19 beginner , I went against a myers in haddonfiel, he completely wreck us because my teammates did reckless unhooks, I repaired the only two gens in the entire match, when he inevitably found me, he down me and tookme to the hatch... to that point I tougth the hatch were a urban legend or the devs had removed it in a previous build, because I never found it before as a killer nor survivor.

    in my shock in my first encounter with a lenient killer and my first encounter with a hatch, I forgot to thank him or to see his name!

    Then in a way of repay my debt to him, I started to bring the last rank 20 or 19 survivor in the match to the hatch... until some day one of those survivors said to me: "stu**d killer! reported for let me live"

    A Bubba let me live yesterday because I was the only one to survive long enough.

    He dropped all of us in 2 mins. I crawled away and he decided I was worthy of living.

  • popcan115popcan115 Member Posts: 5

    I got to live as i had no mither on and i was against the pig and i run her around a while and she just gave up and everytime we would see eachother she would run off thats how i got the achievement

    One time I was playing against a Ghostface and there was only two people left, I was being chased and on my last hook. So, after I vaulted a window I was able to get near a locker and I pointed at it, I was trying to pull a Puppers. He proceded to down me and look in the locker, turns out the Adam was in there. He looked at me shaking his head and killed the Adam, he then gave me the hatch but I didn't want it, I felt so bad for Adam.

    I think the funniest one was when I was solo queueing and I was a single Quentin with 3 Claudette's.

    The match was Ironworks of Misery and it was a Doctor, I ran him for about 10 minutes until he finally caught me. The Claudette's meanwhile didn't complete a single gen and were crouching in the corner of the map, so the Doctor slugged me and used his madness to find the Claudette's, they all went down in seconds.

    He hooked them all and after they died he picked me up and gave me hatch, nodding his head.

    The Claudette's then sent death threats to me and the Doctor, saying that we were "teaming" and that the Doctor was "aura hacking" (I don't think they knew what shock therapy does) and that I was "being useless" even though I was the one being chased and they were the ones all hiding in the corners.

    Some players really concern me about their mental health, since that match me and the Doctor have been pretty good friends 😂

  • Warlock_2020Warlock_2020 Member Posts: 1,789

    Yes. I have spared someone because they made me laugh. I cornered a Bill and he put his key on the floor and pointed at me as if he were offering it as a bribe. I smacked him and let him run away clean. After the match he waited just to have a good laugh about it.

    Best part was, the key was still there at the end.

    If this was on PS4, it was probably me.


  • LawrenceGordonLawrenceGordon Member Posts: 77

    Nope, it was on PC. However, you are still awesome!

  • Mister_HoldoutMister_Holdout Member Posts: 2,080

    I can't really think of any. Killers very rarely show me mercy.

  • fcc2014fcc2014 Member Posts: 4,213

    If someone disconnects early in the game or gives up on their first hook and leaves their team shorthanded i will hook get my stacks but not purposely kill anyone. This happens a ton the first week of rank reset.

  • Raven014Raven014 Member Posts: 2,918

    That's understandable. She's a 6 year old at heart. : D

  • ImpalaImpala Member Posts: 124

    Before the EGC lots of killers used to give me the hatch, one Billy in particular let me go because from his own words "from the 4 survivors, you were the only one who knew how to loop and you didn't deserve to be sacrificed".

  • SovererignKingSovererignKing Member Posts: 1,273

    When I was doing No Mither challenge Rank 10 to Rank 1 I was given Hatch 6 times. Those Killers all said "Hardly saw you all game but you did work I can tell". They let me go out of respect for playing Survivor on "Hard Mode" cause I ran No Mither / We'll Make It / Iron Will / Dead Hard

  • LCGasterLCGaster Member Posts: 3,154

    One time I went against a really good Leatherface, he was SO good

    I ended up being last survivor alive, before EGC so I was trying to finish a second gen

    He found me and I just stood there looking at him waiting for death to take me

    He stopped revving his chainsaw and let me finish the gen

    He then found the hatch and gestured me to jump in

    I refused at first, he beat us fair and square, he deserved the kill

    But he insisted, so I escaped

    I asked him why

    "I always let people go when they recognize defeat. They know I won, and that's what matters"

    I dramatized this story a bit for effect, he didn't say exactly that but it's basically what he meant

  • LSJeffLSJeff Member Posts: 28

    If I ever see someone playing Jeff I let them live and protect them. They are majestic qtpies who are (almost) always extremely wholesome. It’s just a shame how rare they are. If anyone harms a Jeff, they become my obsession.

    Only once have I been against a 4-man Jeff team. I reached peak dopamine that game.

    Things that make me spare people are usually people pointing out a bug or something that looks really dumb, if they 3 genned themselves with a dude dead but didn't give up I'll give the last guy hatch, and David's running No Mither (because of the adept, that is with bad luck unspeakably painful and I'd rather just make their day much better), and people that help me farm (Idk if it's just me but if I'm playing freddy with dream pallets I try to farm it and some people do help). Things that guarantees death are teabagging at every pallet and instaheal spam, back when MoM was a poison in this game I'd specifically tunnel them to the ground, I don't run addons usually so I didn't lose anything (on a side note I loved Legion especially since he could completely deny MoM from even happening with frenzy spam)

    Yes, but I have no clue what I did. Trapper let me out at egc, then I went into spec mode and watched him slug the remaining 3 until the entity came up and had lunch before they could crawl out. 🤔

    NOED of course...
