The Video Game

  • Game-Breaker: Some consider the pig stick this and it is banned on many servers. It does, however, have the drawback of leaving you exposed should you miss and unable to stab anyone for a few seconds, and you cannot feed from any players you kill this way.
  • Nightmare Fuel:
    • You are being hunted by an invisible, superpowered, knife-wielding psychopath.
    • Mmmm, fresh meat.
    • ....llllook up.
  • Nightmare Retardant: The Nightmare Fuel entry above is very accurate... unless you are the invisible, superpowered, knife-wielding psychopath. Then it's just cool.
  • Paranoia Fuel:
    • There's a psychotic invisible killer on the loose with enough strength to send people flying across the room by throwing a chair at them. He can see through walls as well, and may have found you by the time you've gotten to this sentence. Have fun.
    • Oh, and if he feels decidedly playful, he'll let you know he's run into a few of your buddies. By hanging their corpses from the ceiling.
    • If your teammates panic, which is a very real possibility, they may accidentally shoot you in the face after mistaking you for the Hidden.
  • Scrub: Most servers have the pig stick turned off because of complaints that it's overpowered.
