Overview[edit | edit source]
Gameplay[edit | edit source]
Mitch’s gameplay is centered around not being frightened easily and excelling at repairing objectives. His composure is the second highest in the game, only being beaten by Jenny. Where he shines is his high repair stat. It’s the second highest in the game behind both Eric and Deborah. He also has a decent level of stealth, meaning he can stay hidden from Jason without giving off his location provided if he is a considerable distance away.
While he doesn’t get frightened easily, he’s definitely not a counselor made to fight. He possesses unimpressive strength and abysally low luck. He’s also lacking in speed and stamina which will make it hard for him to evade falling into Jason’s clutches. Due to his poor combat ability, players should seek out firearms or weapons with a high stun chance. Doing this will help make up for his weaknesses.
Mitch is not a counselor meant for being a “lone-wolf.” His stealth isn’t good enough to allow him to remain hidden, he is awful at fighting, and to top it off, he’s not particularly good at running. It’s best that he sticks with other counselors so that they can protect each other from Jason. Upon selecting Mitch, players should check to see whether or not any of his teammates have selected Jenny. Mitch and Jenny are a great combo when paired together as they both have the same level of stealth, high composure, and similar speed/stamina stats (meaning that they simply just can’t outrun the other and leave them behind). Mitch is the repair specialist of the duo while Jenny can be his bodyguard. If the two players are good at communicating and playing together, Jason will have a difficult time dealing with them. Due to both of them having high composure, they have a decent chance of escaping Jason’s grasp should he foolishly wait too long to execute them.
Mitch doesn’t fare well in the later stages of the game as Jason gains Rage. When this happens, it becomes next to impossible to survive and outrun Jason as him. It’s best for players to fix up an escape with their teammates as quickly as possible. All in all, Mitch has his uses and roles that he fills very well, but he simply isn’t good enough to survive on his own. His best chances of survival is to work together with other counselors in order to fix up an escape. Mitch isn’t very versatile as a character, so players must make wise choices on what to do when in-game.
