When you hear him transform, get in a locker.
With the new changes this actually helps him.
He gets blood orbs while transformed, now?
his power isn't fully consumed when he picks someone up. it stops at where he was at. so if he picks you up at 75% remaining, he'll be at 75% (and ticking upwards while hooking you) then able to pick up the 2 blood orbs from hooking you freely & be almost ready to oni up again.
He means the grab challenge in the Rift. Grabbing from a locker counts.
Eventually, people will learn to just go in a locker vs Oni, forcing him to waste his Oni time searching lockers for survivors. If he doesn't realize that people are in lockers, he'll just zoom around aimlessly, getting 0 use from his power.
I mean unless you're on a map without multiple escape/hiding paths sure but I prefer just juking him since he's still first person + moving very fast. On pale rose/badham I pulled it off multiple times.
This makes me ask another question I couldn't really tell since orbs are hidden from me - do survivors still pump them out while he's in oni mode? Since if 2 survivors are injured in a locker they'll just be dropping fuel for the next one anyway.
Or you know just pallet loop like every other killer
Just don't get by the m1 killer 4head
You'd be giving him a free locker grab and he'd keep his current power progress, so he'll be able to activate his power again in a few seconds. Worst case scenario, everyone hides in lockers for no reason and it slows the game down.
pallet loop he can't flick anymore, they deleted a skill cap so he's pretty basic...
