Nooblicious things you did when you started DBD

What are some of the most grade a, top draw, all boxes ticked NOOBLICIOUS things you used to do when you started off in the fog?

My sin? I used to think I would kill hooked survivors quicker by standing there and hacking away at them as they hang on the hook. Hey, they screamed when I hit them, so that's good...right...🤔

    Chasing one dude the whole time and following them... and not realizing I had a MASSIVE red light coming out of my face.

  • whammigobambamwhammigobambam Member Posts: 111

    Thought I could just jump right into hillbilly play with no perks addons or experience.

  • 8obot1c8obot1c Member Posts: 983

    I couldn’t hit skillchecks lol and when I went around as killer I didn’t know whatscratch marks were. I put on No One Escapes Death not knowing what the exposed status effect was and I hit somebody and they went down and I thought “weren’t they at full health before I hit them?” I only got 1 sacrifice. Now a days it’s a dc and 2 maybe 3 or 4 if it’s swf

    Survivor: Trying to get myself off the hook. Not rescuing others because I thought the killer would surely find me. Running around like a headless chicken as soon as I heard the terror radius instead of sneaking. Skill check fails.

    killer: not using the killer’s power. following the scratch marks but in the wrong direction. Not looking around to see where all the hooks were - only seeing the one that might be a mile away. Getting hit by every pallet. The corn. The swamp.

    I'm not sure if this would be considered noobish as lots of survivors do play this way (mostly Claudette's and Nea's and Meg's) but I was very immersed hiding behind trees, rocks or in lockers and from that I did even worse in chases then I already do.

    I'm glad to of watched survivor streamers as I actually am slightly better at doing things then being THAT teammate.

    I up down gens.. Well everything... I could not hit a skill check to save my life.. It took me forever to realize the audio cue...

  • MochanMochan Member Posts: 2,886

    These are my sins as a newb survivor:

    1. Hiding whenever I hear a heartbeat.
    2. Farming meat off the hook with WGLF.
    3. Crabwalking everywhere with Urban.
    4. Trying to get off the hook by myself and thinking Slippery Meat was an awesome perk.

    I don't do this crap anymore, thankfully.

    The sad thing is that I think this is the way BHVR originally envisioned the game to play.

    My friend and i had a key and we didnt know how the hatch worked. So we spent the entire game looking for the hatch, only to realize how dumb we were when i looked up how the hatch spawns worked.

    I stood next to hook with wraith cloaked thinking I was completely invisible. Got flamed in messages after game

  • dbd_noobdbd_noob Member Posts: 135

    I always equipped toolboxes and thought they are used automatically. So I never used them and always was like: they do nothing, the repair speed is the same.

  • MegMain98MegMain98 Member Posts: 1,513

    I thought I could run faster as Meg because her bio said “able to outrun most killers”.

    Even as a noob I was never immersed. I played dumb though. I threw down pallets when the killer was 20 feet behind me.

    I also didn’t know scratch marks were a thing so I was shocked when the killer knew exactly where I was *shocked Pikachu face intensifies*

  • DelsKibaraDelsKibara Member Posts: 176

    Does not knowing that you can Lunge as a killer count? Because I've done that for like a month until someone told me you could lunge attack.

  • Spooky13Spooky13 Member Posts: 303

    Same man. Spent about a month as Wraith snuggling up next to survivors before going for the attack.

  • MrDardonMrDardon Member Posts: 604

    Running straight, looking straight

  • FriendlyGuyFriendlyGuy Member Posts: 1,377

    I used to camp ALOT as killer because i found it so difficult to catch em sneeke fastasfuk survivors.

    As survivor i abused lockers. Every locker was my safe haven.

  • FrostyFrosty Member Posts: 373

    Not realizing the red stain showed up through walls and such and always wondering how they knew which way I'd be going

  • Yung_SlugYung_Slug Member Posts: 840

    As survivor I wasn't aware of scratch marks and I wondered how the Huntress kept finding me for my first ten games.

    When I got tired of going against Huntress I switched to killer and it still took me a while to realize how scratch marks worked. I first noticed them in the badham school basement and thought they were just normal for that room.

    I also used to think killers had different lunge ranges. I thought clown was the best because it just felt better than most to me.

    I also didn't know much about Myers for a while even though I mained him. I didn't know Tier 1 was immune to detection or that Tier 3 had a longer lunge.

    I would end up running into trees. Wait.... I still do that.
