Empathy better than bond?
I am more of a stealthy player and after using both bond and empathy, i say empathy is the better perk.
It's aura reading is map wide just about. You can tell when people are being chased and you are safe to do gens without worries. For the times that no one is injured, spine chill lets me know when the killer is in my general area. The combination of the two give me so much situational awareness, its easy to stay safe throughout the match.
