Top must have perks for Killer and Survivor?


To get into the tops of the ladders what perks are essential/recommended?

6 months ago I was running


  • Self Care
  • Adrenaline
  • Borrowed time
  • Iron Will


  • Hex Ruin
  • BBQ & Chilli
  • Nurse's Calling
  • Sloppy Butcher

Are these still the must haves? I recently moved to PC so I am trying to prioritize perks to unlock and would appreciate any thoughts or feedback

    The top perks have changed a bit but it's more like this now. (This isn't a build it's just the top meta perks for this current meta)


    • Self Care
    • Adrenaline
    • Balanced Landing
    • Dead Hard
    • Borrowed Time (Used not as much anymore though)
    • Urban Evasion


    • Ruin
    • BBQ & Chili
    • Corrupt Intervention
    • NOED
    • Nurse's Calling
    • Pop Goes the Weasel

    These are the top meta perks so... it's changed a bit? Because NOED got buffed, Corrupt Intervention is some what better than Ruin to some Killers, and Pop Goes the Weasel got a big buff that made it really useful for all levels of it.

    As for Survivor, Balanced Landing is used a lot especially on maps like Crotus, Coal Tower, Ormond (Sometimes), and Haddonfield. Dead Hard is REALLY Meta and most Survivors run it... Borrowed Time is used not as much anymore, probably because of the End Game Collapse but who knows. And Urban Evasion is used a lot by Survivors like Claudette, Nea, Survivors that're smaller and harder to find.

    Self care is getting old, i would say all you're perks are good or a must have but i would replace self care with decisive strike, since it's in my opinion a real must have, as for killer hex ruin will always be a must have xd
