Is she fun? I havent played many of the monsters yet. I am going to try her next if she is free unlock.


She’s powerful. I don’t know whether she’s fun though.


Unless you’re on console you need to unlock her/buy her.
In this latest patch they finally changed her up and gave her the buff she deserved. She was too slow before and easily countered, especially at higher rank play. Just the faster time to set her traps on the ground is fantastic, even without an add-on to reduce it further.

Basically her power is that you set traps on the ground (she carves a triangle with her hand in the dirt) and these traps can be triggered by Survivors. If they’re triggered and you are within range, you can teleport to them if you want to. A survivor triggers them by walking or running over them, but they won’t go off if the Survivor is crouching or if they use a Flashlight to disable them. The traps spring a “fake” version of the Hag and slightly disorient the Survivor so they’re control is wonky for a second. If you teleport then you’re basically taking control of that phantasm Hag that was triggered.

I’ve always found her really fun to play. But it got hard after a while because of how easy is was to counter her. Now she’s great to counter looping Survivors because of how fast you can put down a trap.


ohhhhhhhhhhh thats how she works… I have been playing Meg Thomas as of late and I went up against her… She was hard, now that I know to look at my feet for marks it will be a much cleaner exp next time.

counter looping. what you dont like running around in circles and stalemates in your game experience? whaaaaaaa


If you play as a Survivor against Hag, here are a few tricks:

  • Urban Evasion is great, it’s the perk that let’s you crouch walk faster than normal
  • Small Game perk will also notify you if there’s a Hag trap
  • If you are hooked with a trap in front of you, most likely someone will come and unhook you and they’ll crouch to not trigger it. You the hooked person you can hold crouch before you’re unhooked and you also won’t trigger it, if you aren’t doing that you’ll trigger the trap as soon as you land with your feet on the ground.
  • Watch out for Hags running add-ons that make the phantasm trap models have collision, it can trap you in places like the basement stairs and you can’t get by (this happened to me once and was terrifying)


Thank you for the information. I play Freddy Kruger a lot (until pinhead makes an appearance) and I am about 20 levels into my next prestige. One thing I found out Freddy is really good at is taking down the circle runners and gate hoppers. He gets a bit of speed quite often and this is enough to catch up, get a swipe in.

Even if people are over half way across a plank, Freddy will still be able to hit them with his claw.

I finally got the perks I like agian, bitter murmur and insidious. These two perks give freddy an insane field of view to spot players everywhere.

I destroy people usually with Freddy, but one thing I have a problem doing is killing the survivors. I have the hex that builds up 5 tokens and then allows you to execute the survivors by hand, but I can be all the way on the other side of the map and I WILL NOT get a token.

Are there any perks coming down the line that allow for easier multiple kills? or is the perk I am using kinda broken atm? (i got the offering head thing to take out the last survivor)

I had no idea so many of us were playing this game… ahh evolve jetlag…


Personally, you’re kind of wasting a perk spot using Insidious. You really should always be doing something, and having to stand still to get no Terror Radius is only good if you camp people, which I advise against.

They just changed Bitter Murmur and that one is pretty useful on most Killers. It’s okay on Freddy, but not the best since Freddy is already good with seeing auras in the dream world.
Yeah Devour Hope is a Hag teachable perk and is great if the Hex isn’t found by Survivors.

I recommend BBQ & Chili (Leatherface teachable) because it’s great for everything. Basically whenever you hook someone the auras of the other Survivors are revealed to you for 4 seconds if they’re further than 52/46/40 meters. You get bonus stackable bloodpoints for each Survivor hooked for the first time. If I’m running Devour Hope I’ll make sure I have BBQ on because I can hook someone and then takeoff for the furthest person I see so I know I’m heading toward someone, I’m not camping the hooked person, and I’ll get a token since I’m moving far away when they get unhooked.

Hag’s other teachable Hex: Ruin is also a good option for Freddy because it slows down the match until they find the Hex. Ruin basically fucks with generators by having it regress instead during skill checks. Freddy is such a late game Killer that this can help you get some early hooks before gens get repaired.

Never run the Overcharge (Doctor) perk on Freddy. I’ve seen people do that and it’s embarrassing. NOED (No One Escapes Death) is a decent perk choice for just about any Killer, but you don’t want to run it if you’re already running a Hex perk. NOED Hex only activates once the exit gates are powered; it picks a dull totem on the map at random and becomes a Hex so if there aren’t any more of those left because Survivors cleansed them then it won’t activate. If NOED 3 is activated then you can one hit down Survivors. Pretty powerful.


I am going to go in the game and investiage some things, BRB but I wanted to let you know, that is not how I use insidious. I use it to trick taunting survivors in the exit gate to come out and search for me… Survivors want to T-Bag so badly I use it against them.

( I haul butt to the other side of the map chasing survivors (trying to get those 5 tokens needed to kill) , but that perk seems glitched, like I couldn’t get any further away, the opposite end of the map and I still didn’t get a token.)

Leatherface BBQ & Chili
Hags Hex Ruin
I will have to find No one Escapes death…

Currently the best teachable I would be able to buy is Save the best for last, but that’s a finnicky perk it grows up and ultimately down.

Great info ^.^ (oh my just looked at the hag… creepy)


As you play you’ll find out what each Killer’s weakness is and find perks that help with it.
Like for Huntress I usually run BBQ, Bitter Murmur, Nurse’s Calling and Stridor so I basically always am on someone. You don’t need Brutal Strength because you should never be breaking pallets unless you absolutely need to, because if someone drops a pallet you should be throwing an axe at them and be far enough away to not be stunned.

While Wraith I always put Brutal Strength on because I end up breaking the shit out of all the pallets in a chase most of the time just to get rid of them.


Doesnt that make it so you cant teleport tho? I don’t remember because I literally never use it because of that, but that does sound insane.


Can you explain this? His power makes it so survivors know to run to pallets before you can hit them and he moves the same speed as other killers so idk how he’s fast.

And the pallet part. That’s just the way pallets are right now, which is getting a small fix in an upcoming update.


Freddy routinely gets speed upgrades while he chases (his built in kit) and then you just equip an item to give speed boost on dream transition along with dropping transition time as well.


Yeah, it happened to me once too.

It didn’t end well…


Can someone please explain something for me too.

From Killer Perspective : When you are selecting items, they have things like decreases skill check chance or increases but the way its worded I am not sure which is the negative course for the survivors?

ex. Decrease Skill Check Chances… (is it decreasing box size? or are they showing up less?) ect…


They show up less, which makes it harder for the Survivor to wake up and leave the dream world.


Thank you for the clarification… I had to be sure… I read it two different ways… thank you thank you


Took me awhile to figure this out but now I know. What you’re talking about is bloodlust which every killer has. If you’re relying on bloodlust to do good and you’re somehow doing good in matches, then that just means the survivors are really bad. As you improve, you’ll realize why freddy is the worst killer in the game.

With that said he is supposed to be getting a major rework, as bhvr have said that what they’re doing for him is gonna take time and its more than just a number tweak.


I dont rely on it, i just found out how to use it effectively enough with freddy. Freddy attacks with his right arm, when people are jumping gates if you think your are just out of reach, do your attack and swing to the left, freddy claws will be close enough to get a hit on a survivor (even after they are practically over the barrier.

please remember… my gameplay is not 2 dimensional. So many people immediately think I have the same game play as Everyone else in games but when it boils down to it, I play things different with ideas that people just dont think of… they just dont get it. ^.^

… While people were talking with me with Evolve, so many people were pissed about how I played monster characters. But my out of the box thinking got me to gold tier monster fights.

(p.s pop opininon is he is a bad killer, but with my style… i disagree) Plus… i just like freddy.


Dunno if it’s been mentioned yet but DbD is free on PS+ this month.
