Hillbilly's overdrive visuals. Should it be cyan flame or orange overheat? (Purely visual)

This is obviously for people who played PTB already.

So Hillbilly has completely new mechanic (overdrive) which replaces overheat. I love everything about it except for the visuals of it. Right now on PTB it looks like magic, cyan flame thing... In my opinion it looks very out of place (despite it being my favourite colour actually). I think the orange overheat we had so far would look and feel here much, much better.

What do you think looks better in your opinion?

Old orange overheat looks better and more fitting.

    The overdrive update is great, but the blue flame really does just look goofy. I'd much prefer the overheat visual.

    I was wondering why they chose blue as the color. I can't help but wonder if this visual choice was intentional so survivors could determine when he's in overdrive? Sure, you can probably determine that from his speed, but the blue makes it very easy to see.

    I think the flames are there more for the Survivor's sake than the killer, as without some tell sign during chase, they would have no way to tell when Billy enters overdrive.

    @RealAzure @Smoe But you can see bright orange exactly as well from the distance as this bluish hue. That's why I have 'problem' with it. It could even have this flame effect - which I'm not a fan of (purely easthetic reasons), but not as much as I dislike the colour. Just so out of place : (

    literally this. #########. I thought it was 100%, for sure, an addon or a weapon skin. But, seriously? This is actually, completely, what he looks like now?

    Why blue?? wtffff. maybe if it looked like actual flames... but it looks like some anime cyan blue fire effect. he literally looks goofy.
