Pinhead's Summons of Pain brings forth a nasty chain that guides its way towards the Survivor, decreases their movement speed and enables them to leave through the exit gates. The Hex Perks work well together by basically dominating in map control and revealing the aura's of Survivors. Pinhead's Summons of Pain chain and the Hex's clutch assists in granting the Killers' with the locations of the Survivors, leads to a one-hitter-quitter Killer build situation.
