Survivor Rulebook for Killers

Options

Treat this topic lightly. It's not about discussing x or y playstyle.

I wish to create and actual IRL rulebook of the widely known "survivor rulebook for killers"

But I need y'all help. While I can think of many rules myself, I'd like for the book to have quite a few pages.


So please, share with me all the rules you can think of, they don't have to be super good, they just have to REEK of entitlement.

Doesn't matter if you're a survivor or a killer main, you definitely met survivors trying to tell others how to play.


I will share the book once I finish making it :D

    First of all, unless you are NOT breaking any game rules, there are no other rules for both sides.

    I would split this "book" into two part:

    • Generaly agreeable
    • Personal twists

    Generaly agreeable: is something like "hey Killer shouldn't tunnel" or "hey Killer shouldn't camp someone or face camp them", etc. Just set of few rules that "everyone" can agree upon usualy when it comes to playing "fairly".

    Personal twists: well these are the wild things. These can be anything really. Someone mind find offensive and toxic that you down them because they were AFK. Someone mind find toxic that you hit them on the hook after they tbagged you. Or that you play some killer with some build. Or you play some add-on, playstyle, etc.

    Simply put, what I am trying to say is: You will never make everyone happy. From 100 different people, 25 might think playing Pig itself is not friendly, 73 might don't care and the last 2 will DC and wait until endgame chat to tell you how horrible you are and you should uninstall the game (even if you played like the most fair killer ever).

    i want this book to be purely a meme, all of the like "smol PP perks", like when they call using X and Y perks cheating, you can't do this and that tactic, i'm supposed to win.

    All the entitlement.

    Nothing serious, just all the stupidity you can think of.

    Don't think of actual rules the game has, it's not about them

    Oh, well then.

    Killer must run to the opposite side of the map after hooking someone. They must face the boundary wall and count to 30 before attempting their next chase.

    Thou shalt not run franklins

    Thou shalt not create 3 gens

    NONONOED

    4 Slowdowns are the devils plaything

    Thou shalt see a recently hooked survivor running past them and pretend they didnt see them

    Thou shalt not bait deadhard

    this is fun

    Thou shall watch me leave

    If thou recieveth a trinket from thine survivor, said survivor is given all quarter and parley

    2 other additions I can think of:

    1. It is ur responsibility as a killer to make sure that survivors get unhooked in time. If you somehow crossed paths with the survivor that they decided should go for the rescue, delaying him/her and therefore making the person on the hook reach second stage or even die, u should dc for the sake of fairness or at least not participate in this game for another 60 seconds.
    2. If you use noed you are required to uninstall DBD after the match and never to touch it again EVER. Also ur a horrible person IRL

    Things I experienced:

    Don't tunnel the unhooked

    Don't camp a hook

    Hook everyone twice

    Spread the damage, killing is the last option

    respect 4%

    don't run XYZ Meta Perk

    don't try other things, everything else could be annoying

    don't pick up survivors from the escape line if they didn't made it

    Break thrown pallets instead of playing them

    commit way too long chases (and respect all other rules)

    don't do predictions, could be sus

    get 360ed at least once or sus

    team with the 2nd last survivor to find the last one

    if someone dc do funny stuff and/or let the others farm some bps

    if it's a bad game (5gen, 3survs) be as chill as possible

    [insert specific killer] do [specific killer] usual memes

    I kept it short. There are also silly rules for survivor aswell and of course it's not logical, ignores the core of the game and also ignoree game rules and they are as personal as possible

    there's a lot of rules that are unlisted there, i know about it's existence, but i'd like to get as many as possible. Also every day i hear about new things killers aren't "allowed to", so it's nice to get people's thoughts here :D

    Rule 1: Dont use your power with Legion

    Rule 2: Never use frenzy while survivor are unhooking and deep wound others in the vicinity as legion

    Rule 3 : if you manage to hook someone. survivors are allow to tell you, you're a good legion 👍

    Rule 4 : :never kill with Legion

    Rule 5 : Never use Legion

    The only one I keep in mind when playing killer is don't tunnel 1 survivor on 5 gens.

    Another one is probably:

    • Only survivors have map choice rights. If u as a killer choose a map though shall be branded as sweaty which is frowned upon in survivor circles.

    As long as we remember that the killer rulebook for survivors is just as thick and cumbersome...

    The only thing I care about is hard tunneling. If an unhooked survivor is being dumb after being unhooked then yeah, kill him. However, if you sit there and watch someone unhook, then only go for the unhooked you are a pos.


    Everything else is fair.

    oh look a book that was made by survivors who think anyone will follow it

    whoops there it goes in the fire camp

    look play as you like, there ain't no rules

    survivors don't care about killers so why should killers, tunnel, camp or don't, you are playing a game, if you gonna follow some imaginary rules, you might as well just let all 4 survivors go

    how about survivor rule book. survivors must do generators, killer must kill. doesnt matter how u get to that outcome be it gen rush, slug, camp, tunnel whatever. as long as you do the role you picked your all good.

    But seriously making a topic asking for a rulebook that killers must follow is kinda entitled and i do hope that your games are filled with killers who don't follow your "rules"

    Other than what the game has set there is no "survivor rulebook", it's just a made up concept from salty killers who get upset at in game chat from other fools. Just more fools who believe it's actually real.

    • You are not allowed to ask for survivor nerfs, only the killer may be nerfed. Everything else is unfair and no fun.

    Here few rules...

    You have to "always" leave hook and even if survivor is rescued immediatelly you are not allowed to go back. So you have to go find new survivor and just let the other two heal...

    You are not allowed to go after same survivor you hooked if you have't hooked someone else in meanwhile. Even if he abuses off the record to prevent your getting another down.

    If you play bubba you can facecamp but you have to allow trade to happen.

    This points out an issue - I disagree completely with the first two examples you list as "generally agreeable" and "everyone can agree on".

    1. Killer shouldn't tunnel: BS. Tunnelling is a perfectly legit strategy - there are many occasions when it's the best tactic to use.
    2. Killer shouldn't camp someone or facecamp them. Okay, I have no issues with the facecamp part but there are again perfectly legitimate reasons to proxy camp, in particular in the endgame.

    So already your rules that "everyone can agree on" don't meet that criteria. It all hinges on your definition ending with "when it comes to playing fairly".

    Playing fairly is not cheating or abusing exploits as defined by the devs.

    Anything else is perfectly legit.

    Does it stop killers from Camping/Tunneling/Using Perks? No. Just some killers who are afraid of end game chat from foolish survivors being cheeky. But some have taken to this mysterious "Survivor Rulebook" as there actually is one, there isn't.
