Killer Idea: The Puppeteer

UtopianSlayer Member Posts: 8

The Puppeteer is a robot that punches survivor with emmence power while the real killer hides behind a screen: Danton Piery. Another idea I came across, I'd like feedback for this one as well


Speed: 4.6m/s

Terror Radius: 40m

Height: Tall

Killer Power:

Brutal Machinery: The Puppeteer starts the trial with two Rush tokens. These tokens have a cooldown of 10 seconds each. Press and hold the Power Button to charge Brutal Machinery (Like Bubba and Billy). While charging Brutal Machinery, his movement speed is reduced to 4.2m/s. It takes 1 second to fully charge Brutal Machinery, once it is fully charge, he dashes forward 8 meters at the speed of 16m/s. Doing this consumes a Rush Token. During the rush of Brutal Machinery, multiple things can happen:

• Whenever The Puppeteer collides with an obstacle (anything in the map) or a Survivor, he damages Survivors 4 meters around him (This can't damage Survivors through walls and pallets).

• Whenever he collides with anything, he stops his dash.

• When his dash ends, he can immediately use his other token to dash an additional 8 meters. He can only chain this dash 1 second after the previous one. During this one second, he moves at 2.0m/s.

• If he doesnt consume his second token during the 1 second or damages a survivor, he stuns himself for 4 seconds (kinda like Deathslinger) and moves at 2.0m/s during this stun.

• At the end of his second dash, he stuns himself for 4 seconds (kinda like Deathslinger) and moves at 2.0m/s, regardless if he damaged a survivor or not.

(Brutal Machinery doesn't break pallets, Brutal Machinery can damage Survivors through windows if The Puppeteer is in front of the window, if he is stunned by a pallet, he still suffers his own stun (meaning he will be stunned twice effectively), when he is charging up Brutal Machinery, he makes a sound que and he has an animation to alert the survivor he is doing this, he has a sound que and animation to let the survivor know when he is stunned)

Mobile Strings:

At the beggining of the trial, this power is on cooldown for 30 seconds. There are multiple Hanging Puppets hanging above near gens around the map, 1 within 16-24 meters of each gen (kinda like Onryo and Alien). The Puppeteer can teleport to any of these Hanging Puppets. When he does this, there is a map wide sound que, and the Hanging Puppet The Puppeteer teleported too starts descending to the ground. It takes 4 seconds to fully teleport and start moving. At the beginning of the teleport, he can see whatever is happening in front of the Hanging Puppet he is teleporting too. This power has a cooldown of 30 seconds. When he uses Mobile strings, he gains 4 seconds of undectable.

Hackable Interface:

When the trial begins, 4 computer stations spawn into the map. The computer stations are off for the first 30 seconds of the trial. After the 30 seconds, all computer stations turn on. Auras of all computer stations that are on are reaveled to all survivors. A survivor can interact with a computer station, if they do, they play a little mini game with 7 steps (exact same as Skull Merchant except its longer where she has 5 steps). When the survivor completes the mini game, The Puppeteer loses all tokens of Brutal Machinery and Mobile Strings goes on cooldown and both Brutal Machinery and Mobile Strings can't recharge and cant be used for 10 seconds. Whenever a survivor completes that mini game, the computer station turns off for 60 seconds.

(If The Puppeteer is in the middle of a teleport or dash when he hacked, he still completes that action, If he is charging Brutal Machinery when he is hacked, he instantly is knocked out of his power)

When a survivor is hacking a computer station, The Puppeteer's screen starts to glitch, indicating to The Puppeteer that he is about to be hacked.

    I really like this concept.

    It could even go wilder like - not teleporting to a puppet, but having several puppets, that can be activated/suspended in this 4 second window (which could be slightly tighter, like 3 seconds).

    The real killer is someone outside, who controls the Brutal Machinery, so having several "puppets" he can switch could be very interesting.

    We would have very unique combo of Blight (dashing machine) Twins (more than one killer, but only one at a time) and Singularity (Suspended puppets, that can observe before being activated)
