One thing that's bothering me.

When I'm playing as a cousellor and I try to hit Jason with a weapon, he can interrupt my swing with his grab even though I'm 3 quarters of the way through my swing.

When I'm playing as Jason and I see cousellors turn around to swing at me, I immediately hit RMB but somehow rarely interrupt their swing. Plus I get stunned 99% of the time - far more than I ever manage to inflict (Yes, I'm aware of the different weapon classes and perks that help boost your chances of stunning Jason).

I was wondering if there's some basic gameplay element that I'm not privy to, or do you suppose this is just a matter of lag?

(Unless you're Chad, Chads a dick)

Chad's only a dick when someone who is a dick play as him. I as a Chad player am A nice guy who will try and save you.

FFS someone answer the man! 

Pssst, I have this exact same issue. I know it happens too when lag is not an issue judging by the pings. It often results in a slew of obscenity, off the mic.

When you see a counselor begin the windup for their swing animation, rotate Jason to the right about 130 degrees ( a diagonal rear-right diagonal from his right shoulder as you are looking at his back). Step back about a step and half, then rotate quickly back to the counselor and engage your grab moving forward. The counselor weapon hitbox with generally miss Jason and you'll catch them in a grab while they are over-extended (swinging forward). You can use the same tactic when you break a door with combat stance instead of blocking.

I'm having trouble reporting cheaters with evidence, my post seems to have been deleted from here, and reddit too. Can somebody please give me a helping hand?

Yeah thanks, any idea which dev handles this sort of stuff though? Cause a lot of folks have been reporting these players with little to no result.

Unfortunately, I cannot speak to the internal processes for Gun Media or Illfonic.

Can Jason hear when you diffuse a trap with a pocket knife? 

I’ve done it a handful of times and Jason has shown up immediately a few times. 

Its hard to tell if I’m just plain unlucky considering I typically spawn to wherever Jason decides to morph first.

Came back to this game after months.

 

I get 0 out of 8 kills as Jason

 

And constantly die as counsellor

 

It isn't fun anymore 

 

I also cannot hit Jason. I try, he grabs, I die, so have to use long range weapons which have one shot, little chance of hitting too, and no stamina recharge...

Things change in a few months time. It might take a day or two to get back into the swing of things.

Take some time in a private match with a friend or two and practice a bit to get back into rhythm.

Awesome post.  A bit late to the party here having just got the game last night so I've got some catching up to do and this post is just the thing.

Sorry for the delay in a response to your question. You probably know by now, but yes, it alerts Jason when one of his traps gets opened with a pocket knife.

@raced, welcome to the forums!

No it doesn't. If you disarm Jason's trap with a pk, it does not alert him. Though Jason can see that the trap is triggered on his map. Therefore good Jasons check there maps frequently and react if they see that a trap has been triggered without a sound = disarmed via pk.

I hear it every time someone disarms it. Have stopped several people trying to fix the phone box after hearing them disarm it.

Untrue. Either tanked and or just luck.  The sound you hear is someone stepping in it = tanked. Thats the whole point of the pk disarm, Jason sees it, can't hear it. If you were right, they would just get tanked everytime. Fortunately you aren't.

I’m not going to sit here and argue with you about this subject. The disarming of a trap with a PK alerts Jason just as a tanked trap. Sorry you don’t think it does, but you are wrong. 

If you care to look, there was a discussion on another forum about this as well:

It's always been silent for me as well.

@lasse_hei, we were both right and wrong. If you are within half the map to the trap that gets disarmed with the pk, you can hear it as Jason. If you are to far away, it is in fact silent. Seems like I have been lucky enough to be close while they were disarming the trap.

Don't think this deserves its own thread so I'll ask it here: Has the baseball bat been nerfed recently (last 2-3 weeks)? I main as AJ and generally hunt for items/repair most of the game but will go on the attack near a police exit if I have a PK. I've always used the bat as my go-to weapon since it gave me a guaranteed knock-down stun but recently it's only had about a 2/3 success rate. Has the bat or AJ been nerfed or is luck just finally catching up with me?

Not in the last 2-3 weeks. What perks are you running? Something legendary with -stun chance I bet. I accidentally had 3 of them with -stun chance stacked up against me and I could hardly stun Jason with anything.
