What is your biggest flaw as a player

    I'm new to the game and played killer exactly once. My biggest flaw playing that role was that I was constantly worried about giving the survivors a good game. My sole focus was on being a good-enough killer to make sure other people had fun. In the end, I got no kills and had no fun, lol.

    As a survivor, my biggest flaw is that I'm terrible at chases/looping. I don't think this will ever change from experience, either. I'm just bad at the whole mind-game thing, so I end up caught within a minute or so of being chased.

    Caring too much about pips :(

    My biggest flaw is becoming biased against anyone in the opposing role. When I mained killer for 1k hours I was adamantly against the survivor role and swore they were the real "power role" of this game. Now that I've been maining survivor for the past 500 hours... that point of view has been a bit skewed... Unfortunately this hasn't changed my stance that the Survivors are the Power Role, but it has enlightened me to the unfair feeling aspects of certain killers. Overall, I accept that this is an asymmetrical game, and thus is almost impossible to balance, and I take that with pride since i like a good challenge, but I can also see why many people may be less forgiving.

    I hate that I am Still favoring the killer side of things while maining survivor... but wonder if my few complaints against the killers are well founded.

    I haven't been playing that long so I make lots of mistakes. Survivor side, anything involving a chase, plus I'm way too passive because I'm afraid to get chased at all. Killer side, I swing and miss SO often. No, it's not the servers or internet connection, I'm just terrible.

    I suck at 360s and I get 360ed a lot as killer. 🙃.

    Killer: toying with survivors during the first part of the round and then end up losing. Also unless I'm having a bad day or I really want something on the bloodweb I tend to let one survivor go, sometimes I let two go.

    Survivor: I refuse to trust my teammates, I refuse to make risky unhooks, and I can't loop a killer no matter how hard I try.

    Not learning about the killer I'm looping against. I don't necessarily test them or don't learn their habits to adjust myself. I just end up mindgaming myself OOF.

    As killer if a survivor runs at me or dodges I miss quite a bit. It’s pretty annoying. As survivor I’m not the best looper but getting better over time.

  • ScottJundScottJund Member Posts: 1,074

    Caring too much about the fun of the other side. It sounds like a self flex but I actually end up ruining my own fun because of it a lot of the time, which is really stupid.

    As a survivor i tend to be a little too c****. Im a decent looper, but sometimes i go overboard and greedy.

    As killer i would say i get a little frustrated at being outplayed by really good teams.

  • meatisadelicacymeatisadelicacy Member Posts: 1,920

    I constantly tell myself, "Don't play a game with a Blendette," and over and over again I'm annoyed when they hide and do nothing.

  • CaptainAbsurdCaptainAbsurd Member Posts: 1

    I find that I often KNOW what the best action to take is, and yet I don’t take it. As a survivor there are times where I stealth the killer and they give me an opening to escape, but instead I stay in the same hiding spot until their terror radius gets a bit further away. This is a mistake I constantly make, and I’ve been pulled out of my fair share of lockers.

    Sucks to get hooked thinking “I knew I should have ran”

  • ArrowTheGreat11ArrowTheGreat11 Member Posts: 306

    As a survivor I always get greedy when it comes to vaulting and dropping pallets, knowing damn well I’m gonna get smacked

    Getting in the headspace where...

    As I survivor I must survive in order to feel good about the match I just played.


    As I killer I have to get a 4k or I somehow failed even if I got the other three.

    Also, getting mad after a series of the above happening where I fail to survive even if I made a ton of points and got to the end or if I didn't get that 4th kill as a killer or worse yet if the survivors trolled me and I didn't get any of them or only just one of them. That makes me super angry.

    As a killer Im too easily taunted

    As a survivor sometimes I’m too greedy with pallets

  • Local_LettuceLocal_Lettuce Member Posts: 2

    For Killer: I let things get to me too easily, it's not a game thing I'm just super hard on myself and I'll get frustrated while I'm trying to practice, being mentally ill makes it worse since it's almost like if I lost it takes a chunk of my self esteem and I react in an emotional and over dramatic way.

    For survivor: I really don't try as hard to better myself as a survivor, I just play and some of the decisions I do messes the team up big time. I'm definitely more comfortable playing survivor.

    As a new player who has only done survivor so far: using my camera to my advantage. I still forget to practice my finger movements on the keyboard while running and trying to look behind.

  • SpookyJeffSpookyJeff Member Posts: 108

    My eyes are my biggest weakness at this point. I can't see quick motions super well, so I whiff a lot even if I make good reads on survivors if they're good at juking. It's very frustrating, but nothing I can really do about it. I also end up focusing in on one survivor even though I'm consciously trying to switch targets whenever they get to a strong spot. As a survivor, my biggest flaw is looping. I can get a few good chases going, but I haven't played survivor nearly enough hours to really extend a chase more than a minute or two.

  • RevansithRevansith Member Posts: 367

    As a survivor main, I hate depipping so much that if I depip due to a mistake I make, or the killer deciding I should die at all costs (the reason I dont play Steve anymore) then it can affect my game play.

    Usually I have to take a break to avoid my anger affecting the team or the match as a whole.

    Having said that, a lack of awareness (such as ignoring indications of a stealth killer while doing a gen) can also mess up my game.

    I try to not let losing pips ruin my game.

  • USELESSUSELESS Member Posts: 1,151

    i think my biggest mistake on my life was start playing this game, because like drugs, you cant stop playing but it makes me feel bad. really the devs need to fix this game. I AM ALREADY TIRED. but in game i think my biggest mistake is on loops

  • JammyJewelsJammyJewels Member Posts: 610

    I only play Survivor nowadays, but my worst flaw is actually thinking the worst of people. Like, someone will be hooked and I’ll think “Oh, you won’t save me in return will you?” Sometimes I’m right in that reaction but other times I feel so bad for presuming such things. The community can be so lovely but sometimes it can be incredibly mean too.

  • Rex_HoneycutRex_Honeycut Member Posts: 101

    As survivor: inconsistent patience with loops. Sometimes I can mind game and stretch a chase by an extra gen or two but I can just as easily get too eager and be in constant movement.

    As a killer: going for the lunge and missing when I should just close distance and tap. When I first started playing, I NEEDED unrelenting

  • MikeasaurusMikeasaurus Member Posts: 2,325

    As Survivor it's playing the hero. I can't leave a match knowing there could be a chance to save a hooked teammate, which usually leads to my death.

    As killer, I get a little too distracted by a T-Bagging Survivor and decide they must be hooked even if it means Gens are done.

  • ShivadeathkissShivadeathkiss Member Posts: 94

    As killer I'm blind as a bat, and lunge too soon causing me to miss a lot of swings.

    As survivor I panic and potato more often than I like too admit.

  • sensualsatansensualsatan Member Posts: 92

    As a killer, misjudging how coordinated survivors can be. This causes me to lose map pressure very quickly.

    As a (solo queue) survivor, sometimes getting overly frustrated with a teammate that hides in the corner of the map doing nothing (or self caring).


    My biggest flaw as a killer is when the mind games are so good it gets me too and a survivor I always go back to save the guy who's down even when gates are open and the end game time is almost up or when I take the killer far and go down so I can let the rest of the random escape and if they try to rescue me I suicide on hook :) taking one for the entity

    On both sides, I mindgame myself by always think the opposition is going to mindgame when they literally just run straight and I mess myself up.

  • KamalaGekidoKamalaGekido Member Posts: 49

    I am excessively easy to ake angry or distract; thus I get Gen-rushed easy when mister "HEY OVER HERE" with their flashlight starts flicking at me and T-bagging at the pallets. This is why I needed ruin. With it gone I just prepare to lose now, and no longer care about rank, so I just tunnel all the time and camp when needed. I wouldn't if I had my ruin, but it's not worth being used anymore so I gotta get used to not having it. Noed and Blood warden here I come!
