The Cannibal , what's your opinion on him?

What is your opinion on Bubba?

my opinion: he is really fun to play as and against the only thing I dislike is his charge time . it's way too long and I think if the devs decreased that he would be way better.

I hate being right behind a survivor only to realize that me holding my chainsaw for 4 seconds isnt enough for it to work.

    He’s garbage. At least that’s what I think. He has no map pressure, no stealth, nothing to help in chase, all he has is the ability to down a survivor that got out positioned and you happen to be on top of them as well as the ability to defend hooks better than anyone else.

    Great kill animation though.

    I remember I had fun running iron grasp + agitation and putting everyone on the basement when I was in the green and purple ranks, but that doesn't seem to work very well on the red ranks.

    I still think he is okay, not bad, but not really that good.

    He is pretty boring and annoying. His only power is face camping and killing potatoes who let himself be in the middle of nowhere and get chainsawed. He is literal m1 trash killer with annoying sounds and a face lol. His power never works against any decent survivor ever.

    It's like he was created to stand there and camp. I feel bad for him.

  • QuolQuol Member Posts: 684

    He is neat, i wish he kept going after chainsawing a pallet.

  • MarcusMarcus Member Posts: 2,047

    With PWYF and Nemesis, he is actually not too bad, but without it, his chainsaw is near useless. Definitely needs base kit buffs and an add-on rework.

  • TKTKTKTK Member Posts: 935

    I hated playing him till I got nemesis and pwf combo on him now I don't need addons for his charge time cause pwf helps his stupid base slow down on his rev.

  • GhosteGhoste Member Posts: 798

    He relies on Survivor mistakes to get downs, so he is weak.

    HOWEVER, if the Survivor does make a mistake, he is devastating at punishing it.

    Therefore, he's essentially a noob stomper.

    Pretty boring to play as, and you're seemingly never able to use your power unless you equip either charge/movement speed addons, or Play With Your Food.

    Think his chili is a little too bland for my taste.

  • LofepramineLofepramine Member Posts: 158

    Don't have him but the killers I went against as survivor were all camping +/- playing insidious.

  • TooKoolFoUTooKoolFoU Member Posts: 378

    I dont play him unless i have dailies or challenges he is required for or useful for. However, i love playing against him. He is by far the most fun to play against most days only because he is so durpy. He is strong on small maps, on bigger maps he is terrible. Maps need to have a standard maximum and minimum size so that all killers have universally the same potential with map pressure (by walking, not using powers to travel faster). When i play leatherface i have a lot of fun. Its very satisfying to down people with his power and on maps that arent the size of Europe... I typically do well with him.

    I stopped playing the game recently, But i still keep up with it.

    He's fine, could do with some sort of a buff, but that could easily put him into top tier depending on what that is. Cannibal has no business being top tier in my opinion, he's essentially Hillbilly on training wheels with how easy and forgiving chainsaws are on him.

  • HuffHuff Member Posts: 1,346

    I like to play him, I like Leatherface himself, but like others say he probably isn't that good if we're talking tier lists and such.

  • VexTheHexVexTheHex Member Posts: 331

    Probably been best if he never was made. Awful concept where his power mainly promotes hard camping and denying any possible save on a hooked person.

    He's in the bottom 3 with Clown and Legion. But I can at least see where they could be made stronger, more interesting, and dynamic. Leatherface... just have the player spawn at the hook immobile with one person randomly chosen on it. When they die, replace with another random survivor. Remove his ability to walk or even use his chainsaw or even look around. But also remove the Survivor's ability to be rescued or KOBE. They both just sit there. It's basically current Leatherface simplified farther.

    I think he has a cute face(s) :3

  • USELESSUSELESS Member Posts: 1,151

    I like him to camp toxic survivors :)

  • ShivadeathkissShivadeathkiss Member Posts: 94

    I love playing against Bubba. There's just something about looking back over my shoulder and seeing him trotting after me with that face, lol.

    With that said I do think the Devs need to show Bubba some love and it would be cool if they gave him a little thinking about.

    Please Devs, let's give Bubba some love!

  • brokedownpalacebrokedownpalace Member Posts: 5,492

    I can't stand him. I roll my eyes every time I see a match is against him. At least 50% of matches he will camp the first hook and as a solo player I have to pray my teammates aren't idiots and go for a save and/or selfish and suicide on the hook. He's neither fun to play as or against, IMO, and his strengths promote toxic and unfun play styles.

    Plus he introduced BBQ and Franklin's into the game. Not OP perks now that they have counters but they're obnoxious to play against. I love bringing a brown toolbox, green key or yellow flashlight with no add ons to bait the killer into bringing Franklin's, though.

    Beast with PWYF

  • Novachris556Novachris556 Member Posts: 1

    I dont like how most player use him to camp and farm you. I'd like it if they dont camp as much bc if not then I might as well DC when I'm against a camping cannibal
