You’ve heard of the god pallet, now get ready for the devil pallet in DBD

DBD and bugs go hand in hand and it's absolutely hilarious.

Over the years, there have been many discussions about the worst pallet on any map. Hawkins was in the running for a long while, but Forgotten Ruins has managed to take the cake with the worst pallet in quite possibly the entire DBD history.

God pallets are beloved because they are usually placed at a key point (entrance to the shack when it has a basement, for example) on the DBD maps. These pallets need to be used strategically, only at critical times when most of your teammates are close to dying. You should never use it at the start of a match, no matter what, or you'll get yelled at by your friends for wasting it (talking from experience on both sides).

On the other hand, this pallet on the Forgotten Ruins map in the Decimated Borgo Realm can only be described as the devil pallet. I see no use for it other than absolute hilarity. Did my friend and I spend five minutes just inspecting this joke of a pallet with rising incredulity? Yeah, of course. But there may as well be no pallet there with how useful this one is.

For starters, the location of it is less than ideal. Pallets usually spawn more towards the middle of the map and never so close to a wall. This one, however, heads straight into one. So, if you were, for example, using the perk Lithe (which gives you a speed boost when vaulting), you'd probably lose some of the speed momentum when adjusting your course.

In addition to the problematic location, the pallet itself is broken. When you drop it, it's supposed to hit the tree, stunning the Killer and blocking their way until they decide to break it (or if you are lucky enough to come pick it up with Yui's Any Means Necessary perk).

However, when this pallet is dropped, it floats in the air as if it did hit a tree. It creates a pretty large gap through which both the Killers and the Survivors can pass, which I immediately tested. There's even enough space for my friend to hold a lute concert.

Behavior Interactive will most likely patch out this pallet soon because it doesn't work properly. Honestly, while it is incredibly unsafe, I'd love for it to stay the way it is just for the joke. And if anyone is daring enough actually to use it to loop a Killer, I'm sending them all of my praises.
