who do YOU think the next Killer should be?!


"WE alLLrdeaDDDYYY havVVvvEEEeee a CClllOOOwwwwNNNNN,,,rreeeEEEEeEE"

Yeah I know, but we also already had a guy with a chainsaw - yet Leatherface was introduced.

I think Pennywise would be awesome. Who else do you guys/gals think should be invited to the roster?

    Agreed...let's get her fixed but as a hype/something to look forward to (aside from ded.servers) I'd love to see some cool new killers/interesting survivors. Jason would be cool I just don't see him coming over anytime soon due to the Friday the 13th game...

    but yeah a alien/huminoid fella would be neat.

    If possible I'd rather see a dedicated game health chapter. New killers just add to the pile of possible things to fix.

    I had a fun idea for a new killer in DBD that I thought was very unique at the time, and would like to hear what you guys think about it. This unlicensed killer would be called The Child, and she would be constantly giggling and babbling, which would replace her terror radius sound. This giggling and babbling could be heard from around 20 meters away. The Childs ability would be called Leaping Lunacy, and it would operate something like this.

    By holding R3, the killer would stand completely still and began charging up her attack. After 3 seconds of charge time, the player would release R3 and cause the killer to leap up into the air, vaulting over obstacles and pallets. If the child landed on a survivor in mid-air, she would put them in the dying state, but in exchange for this, she would be difficult to control in the air and also would take time to charge up her jump. The fully charged leap could launch her around 30 feet in the air.This leap could be used to traverse the map incredibly quickly, and it would also be used as an element of surprise. On indoor maps, her jump would cause her to hit the ceiling and flip, at which point she would crawl across the ceiling with her head turned upside down at 150% movement speed. The downside is that it takes her a few seconds to drop back down to hit a survivor. The Child would be around 7 or 8, and would thus scream with anger if you escape her grasp, drop a pallet on her, or blind her. This shriek could be heard across the map to add to the creepiness factor. I feel as if the child could be an incredibly good nurse-level killer in the right hands.

    No offense, but I do not love the idea of another licensed killer, especially Pennywise. You are entitled to your own opinion though.

  • MykeWazowskiiiMykeWazowskiii Member Posts: 32

    I'd LOVE to see another original killer too! But Pennywise is & has been since i was a child my favorite "monster" (or alien). It'd be dope to eventually see him on this game.

    I still hope that they announce someday chucky, it would be so funny. And no the killer in dbd dont need to be scary, looking at you plague, ghostface, leatherface, etc 😂 i think they are more funny then scary

    Otherwise i would also love to see a original killer, they are so interesting. Licensend killer a bound to the franchise and are also interesting, but in compare kinda boring. If they would add pennywise i wouldnt complain.

    I just wanna note that nobody is saying no to Penny because of him being a Clown. Penny isn't a Clown. Penny is an eldritch god, just like the Entity. That's why it'd be a bad fit.

    Now, as for what I want: Something Origional so I can use all the shards I've saved up from the past 2 licensed killers. Preferably a new trap style killer, though I have no idea how they'd make a new trap oriented thing unless it was someone who could specifically trap vaults, or gens. (or maybe make mimic pallets/gens with a hard to notice tell that explode. I dunno, I want another prep oriented killer again)

    Gimme a hardcore World Interaction or Ranger Killer. We just had our Aggro/Hybrid Killer with Demo, Stealth via Ghostface, and a Debuffer in the Plague. It's been a while since the last Ranger (Huntress/Hillbilly) or World Interaction (Trapper/Hag) Killer.

    I think even for the devs its about time for a original chapter tbh, those seem to be the most unique

    Idc I just want it original

  • liarcyliarcy Member Posts: 154

    I really want to see a killer that uses voodoo magic like link a doll to a survivor and you can use it to interrupt their movement or actions

    it sounds silly but I’m sure the devs would come out with some interesting effects for it

  • JoltzeJoltze Member Posts: 1

    [BAD WORD] pennywise we already got a fat [BAD WORD] clown lol

    i want something original maybe something alot smaller then the other killers would be nice

    Pennywise isn't a clown, it manifests as what someone fears most for example, a clown. It's actually an eldritch god. It may be as strong as the Entity, so no to Pennywise.

    No to Jason for a few reasons: he already has his own game, I think Gun Media and Behavior are rivals, and The Trapper is pretty much Jason. He wears a mask that with straps around his head, his weapon is like a machete, and he uses bear traps.

    I'm hoping for a new original killer. But if they do another licensed chapter, I want to see Dr. Jekyll as a survivor and Mr. Hyde as a killer.

    NOT Pennywise, Especially not the remake version.

    For a killer I'd like something that looks like Father Gascoigne from Bloodborne.

    I just like her

  • TheALIENTheALIEN Member Posts: 327

    Original next- then give me the Alien and I’ll never ask for another licensed Killer ever again Xx

    So, lets discuss possible original killers.

    One way to look at it is Wrestling gimmicks in the late 80's early 90's, So think of any kind of profession and make a killer out of it.

    For example:

    • Garbage Man Killer - M1 attack is hitting you over the head with a trash can.
    • Australian Outbacker
    • Policeman?
  • not_Queefnot_Queef Member Posts: 337

    T1000 from Terminator 2

    He can take the form of any (or maybe just the most recent?) survivor he touches / hits and can form his arm into a blade when striking. He can return to his normal appearance and break into an extra fast sprint while in this form. Idk, maybe something else to make him stronger.

    Brad Fiedel's chase music plays during... chases ofc.

  • I love how no one thought about a killer that throws a hook to reel in survivors for a hit.

  • StrancolStrancol Member Posts: 158

    Pennywise or any other licensed killer

    It should be an original concept, not another movie Killer.

    I like what BHVR thinks of when they create new Killers and Survivors, and lore overall. I want more of that...

  • FireHazardFireHazard Member, Trusted Posts: 7,172

    I was always wondering if Pumpkin head would come to DBD, but than Demogorgon was announced and its pretty much the same thing but one has a tail and a different head...

    But its basically the same thing isn't it? Except, I also think pumpkin is immortal since he's created from rituals or something? I haven't seen the movie in a long time so I forget the details...
