Do you think it's mandatory to have an Exhaustion Perk in your loadout?

We have a handful of exhaustion perks as of now, all with different abilites that allow you to have some great advantages at key moments of the game. However, I wanted to ask y'all, what do you think? Should you always have at least one exhaustion perk in your loadout?

Yes, exhaustion perks are a must have.

    what do you mean exhaustion perk

    If you're wanting to be chased, yes.

    If you want to be stealthy? No.

    I like a play-style more centered to stealth so an exhaustion perk is not so important after all.

    I don't recall the last time I used one.

    They help but they aren't something you just HAVE to put on to survive.

    You don’t really need one.

    It completely depends on your playstyle.

    Sometimes, but not always.

    Only when I feel I am underperforming. Preferably Balanced or Dead Hard.

    I tend to run Immersive builds, but I put in exhaustion perks to assist myself in escaping quickly.

    I play immersivly, so I don't get chased often.

    I use Lithe only (unless Head On for the meme) to extend chases so my team can do gens, some people may not be as good in taking the aggro and I like the chase, confident in it as well.

    Definetly no, you can do good chases even without.

    I can usually manage chases without one, sometimes it even feels like a wasted perk slot but there are those times when you REALLY wish you brought DH or balanced. So yeah, they’re nice to have but not mandatory.

    I dislike them with a passion.

    lets be honest, 99.95% of survivors run at least one exhaustion perk for chases.

    i dont think you really need it, though you are at a clear disadvantage without one.

    personally i am not running any chase extending exhaustion perks (i do run Adrenaline, but only due to the lack of healing perks i have and i dont wanna use selfcare) and it surely is a lot harder.

    if i run a build for tryharding / playing a little more risky, i usually always equip one.

    I would say it only depends on you as a player, since some players are good enough to not need one while others may need it because they're still learning or aren't confident enough to play without them.

    It depends on how you play but I don’t personally use an exhaustion perk.

    I haven't used one in months. I find I get far more utility out of other perks than them.
