"Rugby is attracting attention, but William Ellis, who claims to be the founder of this emerging sport, is being forgotten. Maybe the owner of Oletus Manor can offer him some help?"
Overview[edit | edit source]
When playing him, players can use the football to dash forward and knock the hunter off balance. The Forward will be stunned when exhausted.
If he pushes the hunter into an object, the hunter will be stunned for longer.
His decoding speed is slower than most survivors. His main job is to rescue survivors that are being carried by the hunter. Stunning the hunter into an object while the hunter carries a survivor will release the carried survivor.
He also has 10% increase in struggling speed if captured by the hunter, allowing him to free himself if carried by balloons.
Background[edit | edit source]

Tips[edit | edit source]
Playing as[edit | edit source]
- Use the ball when the Hunter is picking up a survivor (because during that animation the Hunter can't move to avoid the stun).
- The ball loses durability really fast, so if you aren't kiting, rescuing, balloon rescuing, just decode.
- Use the ball to reach a pallet only if the Hunter is chasing you and there aren't any other options.
- The Forward is a rescuer, so it's advisable to use Tide Turner, but remember it only activates when you rescue from a chair
Countering[edit | edit source]
- When the Forward is approaching, immediately change directions to land a hit on him. This will interrupt his skill.
- By putting down the survivor you are carrying before the Forward reaches you, you can avoid the stun that would make you drop the survivor while keeping the survivor downed
