Body Blocking shouldn't be considered reportable.

I know like no one has ever been banned for this, but why is Body Blocking considered mechanic abuse? It's a key part of some strategies, examples:

Wraith while uncloaking; hit is made easier

Trapper while denying a pallet stun; trap is placed on one side and the other is body blocked.

Any killer denying exit gate usage.

cough Bubba chainsawing.


Either they should remove body blocking from the description of the 'trollface' report option, or remove an amount of collision.

    Yeah what Nick said. It's used for cases where someone is intentionally holding the game hostage by trapping someone in a corner for example and not letting them move.

    It’s only a reportable offence when it’s done to prevent someone from engaging in the game, or preventing the game from ending. I.e. killer or survivor blocks another survivor, traps them and refuses to leave, meaning the trapped survivor cannot do anything at all.

    Like, if I catch someone ducking in a corner, damn right I’m gonna block them in and puke until they’re broken before hitting them.

    It’s absolutely within the game rules.

    Causes DC though, lol.
