Killers, what honor code, if any, do you have?

Basically what nice things do you do to the survivors? For example not tunnelling, not camping for any reason, or not slugging or the like, and what things do survivors do that makes you break the code?

I usually don't tunnel unless it's the only survivor i can find, and I also try not to slug for the 4k (I'll slug and just leave you to either bleedout or let the other guy help you up and find hatch in that time). If you teabag, I will down you and hook you. Chain META perks and then teabag at pallet? The other survivors can go; as long as you die I'm happy.



  • Me it's this, I hook you and I'll leave (Legion) however usually after 3-4 hooks survivors literally just sprint to the hook, so I deepwound both players and either leave or down the unhooker, also if it's a new player I'll DW them instead of downing (you can tell).

    I typically let one survivor escape when I play Nurse, but that's only if they got destroyed and they weren't cocky. :)

    If I see someone getting intentionally screwed over by a teammate, I will tunnel and camp the person who did it (blocking loops on purpose / unhooking in front of me without borrowed time / or just otherwise being scummy to someone on their team)

    Mmm I give the hatch sometimes for survivors, depending from my humor xd

  • BossBoss Member, Trusted Posts: 10,123

    Does it make it a code if you just do it regardless of that?

    Cause not tunneling/camping is often part of an honor code, but i don't do it just cause it's not fun.

    If you farm a survivor more than once you're next on the hook. There's no reason to unhook a survivor while I'm chasing you. Let another teammate get them... Don't get me started on Deliverance 🙄

  • WaffleFalafelWaffleFalafel Member Posts: 367

    Take it easy on the DLC releases. I'll do the "unimaginable" acts of tunneling and camping some other day.

  • WeckWeck Member Posts: 3,141

    You unhook a survivor while I'm around without bt? I'll slug him to deny your points and you're going on the hook.

    Simplest way to put it is i play how they want.

    Don't [BAD WORD] know why i play nice, but I do. I hook someone and leave the immediate area, I don't tunnel and if i accidently find the survivor i just unhooked the most I'll do is slug them and head off, I dont camp even when I should unless i see someone, if i steamroll i usually let the last have the hatch, unless I know the last two survivors are near one another i dont slug for the 4k. I go as far as not even using powerful addons or perks because survivors get so whiny about it.

    But you know the damdest thing? No matter how easy i take it on them, even when i play how they want me to play, so THEY can have the most fun possible. They still whine, cry, and send hatemail far too often. They still teabag at pallets and windows, they still act toxic.

    Ive been thinking about posting something about this. Just stop playing nice killers.

    I may occasionally give the last person the Hatch if people DC en masse near the start. That's about it.

  • LordGlintLordGlint Member Posts: 5,765

    I typically have no problem slugging ppl. I often will slug someone freshly unhooked and will chase someone else if I can find em. If the freshly unhooked guy gets up... That's fine. This is mostly just to avoid eating DS, but it also is considered the nicer thing to do. I also don't slug for the 4k anymore, UNLESS I can start a chase with the last survivor immediately. Slugging for the 4k while searching the map is just boring. Anymore... If the last guy gets hatch, I'm not too broken up about it.

    Anything goes for me

  • terumisanterumisan Member Posts: 879

    If someone straight gives up I'll give them the hatch since I feel bad but only if they aren't toxic

  • ahandfulofrainahandfulofrain Member Posts: 528

    If they're not toxic, I won't tunnel.... (unless there's like 1 gen left) and I won't BM like shaking my head. Normally if I down the last survivor after the hatch is open I'll let him have it, but if I'm tryharding (trying to rank up) I'll kill them all.

    TL;DR - if they aren't toxic neither am I

  • ahandfulofrainahandfulofrain Member Posts: 528

    This! I'll purposefully try to motion to the other 2 to heal the farmed guy up too. I know how unfun being on the other end of being farmed is like, so I usually have pity.

  • ShrimpTwiggsShrimpTwiggs Member Posts: 1,066

    If I see a survivor getting farmed by the others, I let that one go and kill the farmers.

    If I'm in a decent position, I will try not to tunnel a survivor. If I happen to run into him again however, I'll hook them.

    If someone DCs I go a bit easier on the whole team and give the last person the hatch.

    I'm not rude toward survivors unless they're rude to me first.

    wtf is Honour? I know only entity

    and bbq stacks

  • MookywolfMookywolf Member Posts: 827

    if two or more survivors disconnect, i'll let the other two or one live. and if a survivor manages to get me to laugh, they get to live no matter what. i also typically kill a person who farms another off the hook. cause i know that pain all too well.

  • xEaxEa Member Posts: 1,571

    I dont camp or go twice after the same person. No Mori. Not dodging any survivors.

  • KilmeranKilmeran Member Posts: 2,051

    I don't really have an honor code in DbD, because in my personal cosmology that's something that should never be broken. Otherwise, there's no honor in it at all.

    While I prefer not to camp or tunnel, there are exceptions where I will. I'll camp a survivor who thought it fun to keep t-bagging me or flashlight clicking me for no real reason. He wants to annoy me like a misbehaving child? Fine. He's getting punished. His match is over.

    If the only person I can see is the unhooked survivor, since I tend to try to move away from the hook and go back on patrol, then that's who I'll chase and down. I won't let them go and go hunting for the unhooker or another healthy survivor just because they came off the hook. That allows them to heal or go grab a gen, and I might not find someone else fast enough, and that's cutting off my nose to spite my face.

    I will slug if it fits what I want to do. I've slugged to prevent the hatch escape. I've slugged to use them as bait for other survivors. Sometimes, I won't slug because I just want my 4-stacks of BBQ, some points in different categories, and that's all.

    Likewise, if I am hunting BP, but don't necessarily want to pip or double pip, I'll do my hooks, my hits, my gen kicks, but allow them to eventually complete the gens and escape.

    Each match depends on my mood and goal.

    I rarely operate on any honor code. However, if I see a Survivor's teammates sand-bagging them or just generally being jerks to them, I'll kill them first.

  • Blackowt_9120Blackowt_9120 Member Posts: 300

    I don’t facecamp, I make an attempt not to tunnel unless they’re the only ones I can see. I will absolutely patrol hooks with gens, and although I understand that survivors don’t like being slugged, it’s often the best possible move killers can make in certain situations so complaining about it is ignorant and selfish, and imma do it if it benefits me.

    I never camp no matter the situation, I never tunnel and if the survivor only recently got off hook I’ll just slug them, I only use moris after 2nd hook, and I never use add ons I consider unfun to verse eg prayer beads, insta saw billy

  • XbonedXboned Member Posts: 461

    I do my best to avoid tunneling and camping, I try to take it easy on visibly new players, I never DC or lobby dodge. However grim things get, I stick it out. Both so everyone can collect their rewards and so I can challenge myself to have a range of experiences.

    I also may never use an ebony mori again. I've only done it once, and it felt really good to wipe the floor with an SWF group, but about an hour afterward I started to feel pretty bad about it. I don't like knocking people out of the game too quickly.

    All bets are off once the last gen pops, though. The second those gates power up, I start playing for keeps. Particularly if I have 2 or fewer kills. This is when I start slugging people just to use them as bait while I have 99% on Evil Within. This is when I stop letting people off the hook, literally.

    I still try to avoid death hooking people at this stage because I want to draw out altruists, though. If my bait dies, nobody's coming for them. So if I've downed someone repeatedly, especially if it's led to me getting additional hooks from oblivious altruists, there's a good chance I'll drop them off at the exit or hatch as my way of saying thanks.

    The only thing that brings out real salt in me is people who DC early and send me hate messages. If you abandon your team and start sending me XBL messages about how I'm garbage while I'm snowballing all over the people you left behind, I'm going to let you know that I think you're a selfish coward who doomed your teammates.

    Likewise for those occasional survivors who abandon their less skilled or fortunate teammates during endgame and then try to brag about it. If you send me a "gg ez" message when you're the only who made it out and you left a wounded teammate crying in the corner to die... yeah. I'm going to make sure you remember that.

    That's about it, though. I like to keep it chill. The vast majority of survivors are chill back, and it's always heartwarming to get the occasional "well played" message or such.

    So I see it as, my world my rules, if I have fun torturing everyone I might let someone go, on rare occasions I let everyone go but that's only if they are all quaking in their boots and not cocky. In my game you a bitch.

    I tunnel when I need too, if the situation deems that tunneling might be the right move and give me back the momentum.

    I don't camp, that's not fun for me and it's a sure fire way to 100% lose UNLESS, it's at the end game and it could guarantee you at least 1 kill. At that point I realize that I had done bad this game but killing a Survivor will give me 500 points and those are juicy points which I would like. Also who doesn't enjoy that end game chase to freedom as a Survivor? That is literally in every horror movie.
