Which killer do you think is underrated/overrated and why?

There are some killers that people think are bad and other people think are good. It's hard to know if there are no such thing as a non viable killers anymore post freddy rework.

    Myers tends to be overrated pretty often. Not to say that he's bad but, some people tend to consider him freddy/billy tier which he just isn't. Also the second part of this post confuses me. Are you saying there are no more non viable killers or asking if that's the case?

    Huntress is overrated, but good in the right hands/latency. Pig is underrated because she has good slowdown, stealth, and her dash pairs well with save the best for last which is always a godsend.

    The Trapper can turn a game in a matter of seconds. All it takes is some proper planning and trap management.

    He’s nowhere near S Tier though.

    Is Ghostface underrated? Because he is the only killer I genuinely am afraid of other than Spirit.

    Not afraid to lose, afraid to see, because he is really good at jumpscares.

    I'm in no way saying you are wrong. But I never use FF for travel. I use it when I need information or when I know they are bunched together.

    But he is underrated

  • I feel people think demo is stronger than he actually is. I also think that his main issue lies in his portal ability. He can't snowball fast enough to keep up a game, especially on a larger map. Having to walk to a portal is insanely time-consuming and for a very little bit of distance gained, because it is rare for survivors to be near a portal without either noticing it or just plain not in the vicinity. Letting him teleport without a portal would alleviate this a bit.

    Doctor is underrated and Hag is overrated. Doctor is a good staller put Sloppy and Thana on him and then survivors will be struggling to cure madness and heal after getting mangled. Hag relies on add ons, the increased teleport range ones otherwise she’s mediocre.

    I think Legion is underrated only because the majority think he's the worst killer in the game when he really isn't.

    Even though she got nerfed by EGC, she's stil my favourite.

    She's got stealth, match pressure (the rbt) and a charging attack.

    A very effective killer especially with perks which compliment her base skills.

    I think most "low tier" killers are underrated, especially Wraith, Trapper and Doctor. They might be addon reliant, but they can put quite a fight against good survivors if played well.

    The only one I might say is overrated is Freddy. From my experience he's a solid killer but not so strong as many seem to think.

    I used to say Myers was quite overrated. But ever since GF was released, I havent seen people glorifying him too much. I guess it makes sense.

    Clown is largely underrated though. He is far from being the worst or best Killer.

    Overrated: Ghostface, basically a stealthy legion. Get's a easy free hit and gets looped because he has nothing to help him in chase. No map mobility so most maps are garbage for him.

    Underrated: Hag, the Queen of killers after Nurse nerf. Insane map control, great Snowball and chase potential. No where is safe against Grandma Lisa.

    I would say that the Hag is underrated, she can be hard to use effectively but she is a very good killer.

    Huntress is overrated I think as a lot of the maps are bad for her power.

  • JFFJFF Member Posts: 163

    She's not underrated, but her design was a disaster from the start., you either stay broken whole game or give her ranged AOE. She's not op, but extremly annoying to verse, especially with the slowdown perks.

    Amanda and Legion:

    Now I'm not going to act like these two don't have their flaws because oh boy they do and they can be crippling however people tend to gloss over their advantages a lot.

    When used correctly they can be very efficient granted I feel like it is ok to bring up the flaws because they are definitely things that need to be addressed however people need to realise that there are some really good things about these two and it would be nice to see people focus on them more because they could win matches.

    Myers and Huntress:

    These two things again the major suckage from the community like literally some people will suck these guys dry with praise.

    However they have very big problems that people tend to forget the opposite of how Amanda or Legion work people focus on the positives weigh more than the negatives.

    Huntress is very map dependent at certain Maps could basically screwed her and her hatchets are very inconsistent either they'll miss when they should have hit making your skill irrelevant or they'll hit when they shouldn't have making your skill irrelevant.

    With such a map dependency and power inconsistency I don't get why people Places so high on the list of tiers she's definitely one of the most balanced killers in the game but not as good as people make it out to be.

    Myers: Myers is also pretty map dependent however unlike the huntress if survivors are good enough they could lock you into T1 for a pretty decent amount of time. Without the advantages of scratched mirror of this means you're losing a lot of map pressure while the survivors are cracking out gens.

    Honestly a lot of his potential comes from survivors having very poor spatial awareness and essentially feeding him the second your survivors are aware of their surroundings Michael becomes infinitely less useful

    Never said they were great or even good just said they weren't as bad as people tend to claim they are.

    Most people assume that they're the worst killer in the game however I see the Clown and debatably doctor to be worse than they are

    Myers overrated.

    Hag overrated. This does not mean she's bad at all, I just think she's generally considered better than she is. I also think it's quite weird that people put Hag as underrated when the vast majority of people think Hag is indeed top tier.

    Clown and Doc both has a power in chase, Legion not, easy as that.

  • BenZ0BenZ0 Member Posts: 3,799


    Wraith, Pig and Old Freddy had a free M1 hit too, are and were they strong or decent? Nope.

  • TheRoyalOwlTheRoyalOwl Member Posts: 749

    Doesn't make him bad, just means you have to be good at mindgames.

  • ToybasherToybasher Member Posts: 903

    OG Freddy was underrated. If you played him like any other killer (or tunneled one person to death at a time) yeah he was very weak given the 7 second delay.

    If you juggled targets, constantly disengaged from chases, and otherwise aimed to keep 2+ people asleep at any one time (Even if this meant breaking chase to re-sleep someone who woke up) you'd discover Freddy had best in class stall, tracking, and stealth.

    With Pill Bottle Freddy basically became similar to Spirit for getting a hit on an awake survivor. They can't see you during the transition meaning you pretty much have a free hit.

    I feel like OG Fred was stronger than Leatherface, Wraith, and rework Legion.

  • IhatelifeIhatelife Member Posts: 5,069

    Ghostaface is overrated. I've seen that some people are talking that he actually might be a top tier. But still he's a M1 killer.

  • BenZ0BenZ0 Member Posts: 3,799


    Yep Legion is secretly the top killer just no one knows how to play this well designed and perfectly balanced killer :) And leatherface is the second best, you just need to aim correctly with the chainsaw!

  • LirulinielLiruliniel Member Posts: 3,007

    Overrated Billy.

    Underrated Pig.

  • Mister_xDMister_xD Member Posts: 7,211

    Underrated Killers?

    definitely Trapper and Doctor.

  • VolfawottVolfawott Member Posts: 3,876

    Honestly clowns tape power tends to be overestimated you could still very easily loop the gas.

    As for doctor without range add-ons his shock stops becoming useful most medium and all large loops. The only thing that doctor's shock in a chase really has going for it is that it has a higher drop-off tier than Amanda's ambush.

    Basically meaning Amanda can really only ambush effectively at all small and some medium Loops whilst Doctor can do it at all small and most the medium loops.

    Overall Legion's power is just more useful also Legion power at least has quite a bit of synergy with some perks whilst Dr the only thing you could really do is a impossible skill check build and high ranks aren't really bothered by that.

    As I said I'm not calling Legion good I'm saying they're not as bad as people think in my mind they're still the third worst killer. They're just not the worst killer
